Situated in picturesque Norfolk, just one hour from Norwich and easy to reach from London, Pentney Abbey is a stunning wedding venue with 35 acres of gorgeous grounds and a rich history. All of Pentney Abbey is exclusively yours on your special day. Escape to this countryside retreat for your celebrations and you can leave the city behind for the night too with space for you and up to 16 guests in the charming on-site accommodation.

For your ceremony the Gatehouse is perfect. Dating back to as early as 1380, this historic building is guarded by a romantic rose garden and archway and accessed via a short staircase. A secret antique spiral staircase leading to the licensed ceremony room, which seats 80 guests, promises a bridal entrance no one will forget.

With room for up to 100 guests, as well as a live band or DJ, The Barn at Pentney Abbey serves as a great location for your wedding breakfast and reception. Our professional in-house catering team will work with you to create a bespoke menu for you and your guests to enjoy here. There’s a bar here as well and access to a patio that can be used in the summer. For night owls, there’s a fire pit in the courtyard too.

There are eight bedrooms in total at Pentney Abbey, accommodating up to 16 of your friends and family who can stay for breakfast in the morning too. The bridal suite will welcome you and your partner after your special day, with a wood burning stove and a sumptuous seating area.

Pentney are delighted to announce that they are now taking bookings for show rounds. To arrange your private show round, please call 01485 500292.

    The most perfect wedding venue ...

    As soon as we drove up to the Gate House my husband and I knew this was the place we wanted to get married at. The venue is stunning and unique and we had such a fantastic day!

    Mercii and the team were extremely helpful with planning the wedding and during the actual day, and everything (apart from the weather) was perfect and went without a hitch!

    It was lovely to be able to have our wedding party stay with us at the venue, and all of the accommodation was immaculate.

    I highly recommend Pentney Abbey and it will always have a special place in our memories.

    The most fantastic wedding day

    From first meeting Lucy and the staff at Pentney, they were extremely helpful and put us at ease with a process we knew nothing about. All of our suppliers were contacted and Rachael went above and beyond when I requested a bowling alley made from bales of hay, on the wedding day, that’s exactly what we had.
    A year ago, we had vision in our heads of how we wanted our wedding to be, and on our wedding day, our expectations were surpassed and a lot of that is down to how well the day ran. Even friends and family commented on how much Lucy and the team did for us and how smoothly the day went. Every little part of the day went perfectly.
    We can’t thank Lucy enough for helping with our perfect day, she is extremely good at what she does.
    We had some issues with the weather which no one could control but again, this was dealt with professionally and without causing any stress to either of us. I can’t imagine the hard work that went in behind the scenes to make sure things went to well.
    The food was fantastic. We had some dietary requirements and this was all catering for fantastically. After the wedding, our guest commented that it was some of the best wedding good they had ever tasted.
    The accommodation was also great and it made for a fantastic weekend for all of the family. Everything was clean and tidy, the décor is amazing and the hampers that are provided are exactly what you need.
    We just wish we could do it all again- and if we did, we would choose Pentney without any hesitation.
