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

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.

Fantastic wedding and venue
Venue Service

By John and Julie, on 24 Jun 2016

Wedding and weekend of celebrations. Fantastic wedding and venue. We hired all the cottages and had the wedding on the Saturday in Holy Cross church on site and reception in cyder house restuaurent, then family celebrations on the Sunday. The food was amazing, staff so helpful, and cottages to suit all. Special thanks to Lord & Lady Mander for allowing us to use their estate. Peace and quiet with lovely grounds plus a great pub, community shop and cafe all within walking distance in Uley. We highly recommend this wonderful place and could not fault it.

Perfect wedding weekend base 4 family and friends

Perfect wedding weekend base for family and friends! We took over the owlpen estate for a wedding weekend and it was a fantastic! It was great to all be able to stay together, but with enough distance for privacy and own space etc. All cottages are within walking distance of eachother and each have their own quirky features. The staff are extremely accommodating and helpful and we used the restaurant for a group brunch on the Sunday which was very tasty and reasonably priced. I would recommend Owlpen 100% and we plan to return for a reunion next year! Thank you Bella & Becky!"

Magical Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By Amy P, on 24 Jun 2016

Magical Wedding Venue. My husband and I got married at Owlpen Manor in July this year and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Bella, Mary and the Mander family were extremely accommodating and helpful throughout all of the planning and we truly could not have chosen a better location to get married. Our family had the option of staying in the cottages which were lovely and cosy, turning our wedding day into a wedding weekend. It also meant the wedding morning was lovely and relaxing, knowing it was only a minute walk to the church and reception. The food was wonderful, as were the serving staff on the day and we had so many guests tell us it was the most beautiful location for a wedding they had been to. We couldn't recommend Owlpen more, thank you!

couldn’t recommend Owlpen Manor enough
Venue Service

By Steve and Victoria, on 24 Jun 2016

We had our civil wedding in April 2016 and couldn’t recommend Owlpen Manor enough. Our ceremony was in the historical Great Hall and then drinks and canapés in the beautiful gardens, perfect for photographs. The reception was held in the Cyder House, just the right size for a small gathering, and great food from Holly and Raoul at Woodruffs catering. Bella was marvellous at making everything run smoothly with a wonderful relaxed atmosphere. We couldn’t have hoped for a better day.

The house is beautiful, the views spectacular

By Emma Townsley, on 27 May 2016

Just married at Owlpen Manor. We wed in The Great Hall, which was beautiful. Grist Mill was perfect accommodation for our family. Thanks to all at Owlpen, the house is beautiful, the views spectacular, and the sun shone. February 2016

Perfect location, helpful staff
Venue Service

By Ciara, on 25 May 2016

Our wedding at Owlpen was perfect. We had a marquee in the gardens of the manor house, overlooking this amazingly romantic house and beautifully kept gardens. It was great to have drinks on the lawns, and watch the sun setting over the house from our marquee. We were married in the church right next to the house, and all my family stayed in the holiday cottages on the estate, so the whole thing was very easy, and we felt as though we had the run of the place with no one to disturb us. Also they let us stay for the whole weekend so we didn't feel pressured to leave, which was great. I'd pick Owlpen again!
