We cannot thank all of the team at Owlpen Manor and Woodruff's team enough.

Venue Service

By Emma A, on 18 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 19 Aug 2016

The most incredible place to have a wedding. Intimate, welcoming, gorgeous, attentive and idylic venue. Everyone made our day so special from the wonderful room, with it's lit fire, drinks in the garden and an incredible spread of cakes and sandwiches made by Woodruffs Organic Cafe. Thank you so much to Lady Mander and Bella for a truly magical day.

Fantastic wedding venue
Venue Service

By CM Holland, on 22 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 12 May 2012

We got married in Owlpen this weekend and it could not have been more magical. The entire area is like an enchanted forest and we were all so in love with the place we were all reluctant to leave. The staff are fantastic, very friendly and helpful. I loved the fact that they were dancing away with us at the end of the night it all really added to warm and relaxed wedding that we wanted. I really can't rate the food, accommodation and service enough. Owlpen we love you :0)

The Cotswolds best kept secret
Venue Service

By David, on 24 Jun 2016

The Cotswolds' best kept secret. A gorgeous setting, tucked deep into the rolling hills of the Costwolds. The cottages are beautiful and charming - we didn't want to leave. The staff were also incredibly friendly and helpful. Our friends were married in the chapel on the grounds of the manor house- a magical setting. Can't recommend it enough.

Magical estate
Venue Service

By DGordon11, on 24 Jun 2016

Magical estate living: charming cottages, gorgeous views~memorable. We spent a week here and our daughter married on the estate's enchanting chapel. My husband and I rented Woodwells, which is a lovely home with three bedrooms,all decorated with antiques, two baths with showers, a formal dining room, fully equipped eat in kitchen and cozy living room. There is even a mud room with a washer. We also peeked into many other cottages, Grist Mill where my Daughter and her friends stayed, equally as spacious and nice, Peter's Nest, a cute and charming one bedroom loft cottage, and Court House, a truly adorable three story marvel with amazing views from the top (but alert, bathroom on the FIRST floor!). Walking trails galore, the gardens are beautiful and intimate with a sense of discovery around every corner, views everywhere. The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly, and Lady Mander was so gracious and helpful as well, through the wedding week. Mary, the chef, created special menus for both the wedding feast and the breakfast the next morning and everyone raved over the cooking! There is Wifi, but limited phone service. Thank GOODNESS!!

Amazing setting
Venue Service

By Charlie Bristol, on 24 Jun 2016

Amazing setting. We spent a lovely weekend here at a cousins wedding. The cottages are lovely and quaint and the setting glorious - even in the rain! The setting for the wedding and the Cider House are fabulous. Food is relatively simple and staff are quite helpful even if a little eccentric! Quirky, fun, different with a fantastic setting.
