Venue Service

By Bec T, on 13 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Sep 2018

We fell in love with Owlpen Manor the moment we arrived to view the venue, and from then we could not imagine getting married anywhere else. The grounds are stunning and there were so many places for photographs or for guests to explore. Everyone at Owlpen was so welcoming and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. Woodruffs, the caterers associated with Owlpen, were fantastic, and our guests are still talking about how good the food at our wedding was. The Cyder Barn and the marquee were both perfect for our wedding, and we had so much scope to decorate the marquee just as we wanted. The accommodation on site was perfect for our guests who stayed, so much so that a few of them want to come back to visit! We were so glad to be able to get married at Owlpen Manor, it was centric to the perfect wedding day.

Nothing was too much trouble
Venue Service

By Terry H, on 18 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Sep 2018

I am sendiing this missive thanking you for helping the wedding day such a huge success, You were on hand to do anything that was required, and nothing was too much trouble for you. With all of the fun and games that the couple had planned for their big day, it would have been easy for their best made plans to go wrong.. The evening went with a swing, and everyone joined in dancing to the rocking band. We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay with you, and you never know, we may be back some day..

What Owlpen offer is truly unique
Venue Service

By Sonnie and Max, on 14 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Sep 2018

Owlpen Manor really is spectacular and everybody raved about how perfect it was. From the grounds to the cottages, walks in the woods and swimming in the ponds, to the marquee, barn, the weekend of our wedding was just incredible. Owlpen really is a very special place and will be forever important to us, our family and marriage. Bella and Hugo, we can’t thank you enough for all the help and support throughout the planning process and the relaxed nature behind all that you do. All weekend, the staff were always there to help and support, with great advice and a calm can-do attitude. Thank you so much. Please pass our thanks on to them. What Owlpen offer is truly unique. We hope this continues and look forward to visiting soon.

Fantastic from start to finish
Venue Service

By Charlie B, on 03 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 11 Aug 2018

Myself & my husband recently had our wedding at Owlpen Manor and hired all the cottages exclusively for the weekend. I would like to say the biggest thank you to Mel & Theo, they did an absolute fantastic job from start to finish. I highly recommend the venue both for a wedding, venue hire or just to visit for a holiday. The grounds and cottages are absolutely stunning and attentively looked after and we will definitely visit again.

Magical venue for our wedding. Owlpen has so much character unlike these wedding factories that we visited during our hunt, so we fell in love with it immediately. Thanks to the team for all your hard work on the day, the whole experience was amazing!

The venue was perfect
Venue Service

By Andi T, on 30 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 14 Oct 2017

The venue was perfect: beautiful, intimate, unusual, fun ... exactly the setting that we were looking for. Thank you for all your assistance in the buildup - what could have been have been a stressful process was ... well, still a little bit stressful, but so much less than it could have been. It really is a special package that you offer, and we're delighted to have found it. We're both struggling to imagine a better venue, and I'm certain that we'll return at some point in the future. Do feel free to put any of this praise on your website, and we have some photographs that you're welcome to have a look at.
