    Stunning, unique and personalised venue for happiest day our of lives

    My husband and I chose Owlpen Manor for our wedding as not only does it have the backdrop of the beautiful manor house but also accommodation for 40 guests, an utterly gorgeous church, beautiful new barn and stunning gardens all on site and all for the whole weekend. It allowed us to have a very personal wedding weekend with the decorations and touches that we wanted. From the first time we went to view Owlpen, Bella, Hugo and the Team made us feel so welcome, always answered our questions quickly and supported us in having our vision of our big day. This also included postponing our wedding twice due to the Pandemic changing from a 125 person wedding to a 30 person one. Theo the bar manager is also a huge asset to the team. From small touches to making sure we had desert wine glasses to helping us find new suppliers when we moved dates, to helping us with extra tables, we can't recommend Owlpen highly enough. We even had a bottle of prosecco left for us in the gorgeous Tithe Barn accommodation. We had a truly magnificent, magical weekend in the most beautiful of settings and can't thank Bella and team enough.

    Worth the wait!

    We booked our original wedding date back in 2018 after falling in love with Owlpen after our viewing. The fact that we could use the venue for the whole weekend was a big positive for us as many of our guests had to travel from across the country.

    Unfortunately we had to postpone our wedding last year due to Covid and Bella and Hugo were so supportive. They constantly kept us updated on the guidance and what this meant for our wedding day. Without their support, the lead up to our wedding would have been much more stressful, given all the uncertainty with the restrictions for weddings. They worked with us to make our wedding day perfect despite the Covid restrictions in place.

    All our guests commented on how wonderful the venue and accommodation was and how helpful and friendly all the staff were on the day. We’re so glad that we had Owlpen for our venue and would definitely recommend to any couples looking for a beautiful, secluded Cotswold venue.
