About Minstrel Court

North Road, Royston
Cambridgeshire, SG8 0AB

Located on the border between Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire Minstrel Court is an historic Listed Tudor Manor set in six acres of beautifully landscaped grounds overlooking a private lake. The facilities are very flexible with a marquee overlooking the lake, a large indoor bar and dancing area (including our unique light up Disco Dance Floor) and an adjoining room where guests can sit and chat. At Minstrel Court there is no need to turn a single room around!

Unlike most other venues in the UK, we have three romantic settings for your ceremony effectively offering an all year round facility regardless of weather!. With one Pavilion overlooking the lake, and a beamed Chapel with a view of Wimpole Meadows, both Pavilions are glassed in and heated and your guests are also covered creating two beautiful spaces to get married anytime! If you prefer we also have the equally attractive listed beamed Long Gallery overlooking the Terrace which can seat from 60 - 145 guests!

Finally, we have our amazing three storey Regency Barn which will seat up to 135, so now whether you like beautiful outdoor marquees or soaring beamed Barns (complete with stained glass windows!) we can cater for every preference, making Minstrel Court one of the most flexible wedding venues anywhere!!

STOP PRESS!! New for this season is the stunning illuminated Sky Lounge Bar adjacent to the Long Gallerey where guests can relax in comfort without having to shout over a disco!

Our highly experienced wedding team will be available to assist you in the planning of your special day, from your first enquiry right through to departure of the last guest. We are completely flexible with the arrangements from reception only, to full civil ceremonies both outdoors or indoors  accommodating numbers from up to 145 during the day to 200 plus in the evening!

There are no fixed menus and all food requirements are fully flexible. So far this year, as well as traditional three course Wedding Breakfasts we have catered Hog Roasts, Barbecues, Fish and Chips, an afternoon Cream Tea, a Thai Banquet, an Indian Feast and Pie and Mash!

Subject to availability it may be  possible to gain access the day before in order to decorate and dress the venue, taking much of the stress out of the Wedding Day!

All of our packages are fully flexible and any element including food, alcohol, timings and guest numbers can be changed or upgraded to suit yourselves!

• A choice of three romantic locations to marry including a stunning all weather outdoor Lake Pavilion, a listed beamed Gallery and a Meadow Chapel • Set in 6 acres of landscaped gardens overlooking a private lake, all exclusively yours for the day! • All inclusive package deals for 60 people from £3999 (extra guests can be added) • Two sensational spaces to dine - the twin peaked Marquee seating 60 - 145 and our soaring stained glass Regency Barn, seating 60 - 135 • Fully flexible catering options - no set menus - external catering possible by agreement • On site accommodation available.

Fantastic Wedding
Venue Service

By Richard and Mary Burnett, on 25 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 11 Nov 2017

Minstrel Court is absolutely the most magnificent venue which is met by Dave and his team who did an utterly fantastic job. We got married in the Meadow Chapel which was glorious with the views of the fields behind and had our wedding breakfast in the recently converted Barn. I would thoroughly recommend considering Minstrel Court, we decided on the venue almost immediately after walking down the driveway. Dave was helpful every step of the way.

Stunning venue & excellent value vor money
Venue Service

By Connie Hantschmann, on 08 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Sep 2017

Stop shopping around, Minstrel Court has everything you could wish for! A stunning all-weather venue and dining location, amazing food, really reasonably priced bar and such a friendly and flexible team that can cater for all your needs. Dave and his team have so much experience and make marrying as easy as it can possibly be :). In addition they offer excellent all inclusive packages at a rate that often includes only the venue hire at other wedding venues. I honestly couldn’t recommend them highly enough. All of our family and friends where simply overwhelmed by the venue.

Everything we wanted and more
Venue Service

By Caroline and Stewart, on 21 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 18 Aug 2017

Despite some rain we had a fabulous day from start to finish. The venue is a beautiful setting and perfect for some great photography. Upon setting up and on arrival Dave had everything planned and proved to be a great host. He certainly took away any of our stress. The setting of the gazebo over the lake is perfect for a relaxed and enjoyable ceremony. The food and wine was lovely and those with dietary requirements were well catered for too. As Bride and Groom we had a fabulous day and night and couldn't have wished you anything more. You can't control the weather so simply make the best of whatever comes. We are disappointed that not everyone appeared to enjoy the whole day but wouldn't hesitate to recommend Minstrel Court as a wedding venue. We certainly have no regrets and feel that the venue and all suppliers delivered exactly what we wanted and more.

Sarah Burling, Manager at Minstrel Court responded to this review on 03/09/2017 15:49:46

Just a note to say the phrase about not everyone appearing to enjoy the day referred to a review by one guest complaining about the weather! (notwithstanding the fact that the sun did shine on several occasions and the ceremony took place outside in the Lake Pavilion as the couple wished!) The review was deemed by Hitched to be somewhat unfair and thus removed!

Lovely wedding in a lovely setting
Venue Service

By Gemma & Paul, on 01 Mar 2015

We got married at this venue in April 2014 and it was AMAZING. The weather was amazing, the owners very efficient and things went exactly to my timings (I am a control freak!) Ceremony was lovely and relaxed, the meal was incredible with many of our guests commenting how lovely it was and the owners were very flexible changing things specifically to our requirements. One massive benefit was that we were able to set up on the Friday also and tidy away on the Sunday which allowed us to fully appreciate our day. A great day, great venue and great value!
