About Houchins

Coggeshall, Colchester
Essex, CO6 1RT

Located in Essex, Houchins is a grade II* listed farmhouse which exudes elegance and charm to provide the perfect wedding venue for your very special day. Although only opened in 2014, Houchins is owned and managed by the same team who have successfully run Dove Barn in Suffolk for the past ten years, so you can rest assured that your day is in safe, experienced hands.

Your wedding day at Houchins will be truly unforgettable. The venue’s wonderful barns have been designed so that your celebrations flow seamlessly from “I do” to the last dance of the evening.

The Foundry is licensed to hold civil ceremonies with between 12 and 120 guests. The room can be transformed in the evening to provide the perfect reception space for up to 200 people to dance and celebrate into the night. The adjoining Chitting Shed is ideal for a relaxed drinks reception, boasting large glass doors which open out onto the beautiful terrace and gardens.

For your wedding breakfast, The Grainstore can accommodate up to 150 seated guests. The space has high ceilings and a mezzanine gallery for additional space and boasts a large fireplace for a rustic atmosphere.

Between May and September, you can opt to have a romantic outdoor ceremony in the Loggia. The grand marquee connects to the Loggia for a fantastic reception space, protected from the unpredictable British weather.

The bridal party can enjoy luxurious accommodation in the elegant farmhouse just 50 metres from the venue. The stylish house has been restored to offer a peaceful and comfortable night’s stay in a self-catering style bed and breakfast. Houchins will also provide a complimentary breakfast hamper with fresh fruit, juices, local artisan breads and cereal to the overnight guests.

• Stylish, modern wedding barns and elegant accommodation • Exclusive, private use of the venue available • Licensed for civil ceremonies for up to 110 guests • Receptions for up to 150 seated guests • Overnight accommodation for up to 16 (bride and family) in the listed farmhouse and our new Honeymoon Lodge for the married couple from April • Good access from Colchester, Stanstead and London, and just one mile east of Coggeshall on the A120

Thank you so much fr all you did to make Sarah & Tom's day a success! We all feel a little sad that we won't be back again - you made us so welcome! You were all so approachable and accommodating , what a great job you do. It meant we all went into the day really confident and in the knowledge that if there was something unexpected or that we hadn't thought of you would sort it out. Fantastic service!

By Catherine, on 25 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 16 Aug 2017

This time last week....! (I can't believe that it's a whole week ago!!) Mike and I cannot thank you guys enough for everything that you've done for us in the build up to our wedding. From start to finish you have all been so lovely, friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Houchins really is an amazing venue, you offer a truly unique wedding experience. We have had so many compliments about the place from our guests, all saying how beautiful and relaxed it is. We really did have the wedding of our dreams, it was such an amazing day, and so good of you to organise the perfect weather for us as well!! The house is also fantastic, having the day before with both our families around us setting up was really special to us. We've got so many happy memories to treasure. Nichola, the ceremony was perfect. Just what we wanted, personal, relaxed and funny and it was so important and lovely to us both to see a friendly face at the end of the aisle. Again, we've had so many nice comments from our guests all saying how much they enjoyed the ceremony. We really and truly can't thank you enough. Best wishes Catherine!!!!!
