About The Master Builders House Hotel

Bucklers Hard, Beaulieu
Hampshire, SO42 7XB

With beautiful views over the Beaulieu River and set at the end of the grassy street that is Buckler's Hard village in the heart of the New Forest, it is difficult to imagine a more picturesque setting for your wedding on the whole south coast of England. The Master Builder's is a perfect country escape.

We want your wedding to be as amazing as you - which it will be, whatever the style or size of day you’re planning. We  know that the very best weddings don’t just happen, they have to be carefully created and many things have to come together to make this happen and we don’t leave anything to chance.

At The Master Builders, we will work with you to put together your perfect wedding day. From your first meeting right through until the end of the big day, we will be looking after you and we’ll know you and your plans as well as you do. We’ll find out exactly what you’re looking for and put together a personal plan and quote – no ‘price per head’ packages, no standard lists of what you must have. If you want to ask a question, we’ll will be there to help you. From help choosing an exquisite florist, to finding a photographer who will capture the moment. From putting the mother of the bride into the best room, to organising a round of golf for your party.

We don’t do hundreds of weddings. We’re not a wedding factory and you’re not a statistic. We pride ourselves on tailoring each wedding to your bespoke needs. We want you and your guests to be hit with the ‘wow’ factor.

From the moment you step into The Master Builder's you will be swept away.

The Master Builder's has two divine rooms to choose from to make your day extra special and unique to you. We have a civil ceremony license for 108 and can cater for up to 108 guests for your wedding breakfast.

Absolutely marvellous!
Venue Service

By Wendy and John, on 18 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 27 Oct 2018

We had an absolutely marvellous time and would certainly rate the Master Builder 5 out of 5! The organisation and support from yourself and your team was really wonderful. I think all the guests were very impressed with the venue, so much so that I know quite a few of them are planning to book weekend breaks at the Hotel! Thanks again for everything.

Our day was very special
Venue Service

By Polly and Jake, on 18 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 22 Oct 2018

My partner and I recently got married at The Master Builders and I cannot put into words just how special the day was. We discovered the venue at the new forest wedding showcase and instantly fell in love. The location is so beautiful- the forest and the river right on your doorstep. We found the organising really straight forward Liga was a dream to work with. She answers emails in a timely manner and doesn’t overload you with unnecessary questions or details. The best part was the tasting evening. My now husband and I were invited to talk through all aspects of the wedding and then invited to dine in the Riverview Restaurant. Every single dish was amazing and there was a great selection of wine on offer. The day itself ran perfectly. Liga worked with all our suppliers to ensure that everything was set up correctly. Andy the restaurant manager was also amazing on the day. He was constantly on hand ensuring that everything was perfect for us. The food was incredible and all our guests were impressed. The rooms are so different and quirky which I just absolutely love about the venue. The open fires give it a cosy country feel. If you’re looking for somewhere to unwind with great food then look no further you’ve found the perfect hotel. Thank you to everyone who made our day so special.

Simply unforgettable

We could not have been happier with our choice of the Master Builder’s as our venue. Throughout the day I was reminded of what a beautiful place it is and our guests had nothing but glowing praise for such a lovely spot. The food was absolutely delicious and enjoyed by all, especially those that had dietary requirements and were catered for with no issues. Every member of staff was kind, courteous, polite, helpful and friendly and could not have done more to make our day feel special. Special thanks have to go to Chris, who was particularly helpful, and José, who was a calm centre of control that made everything go smoothly to the admiration of all. The whole operation felt like a well-oiled machine, but at the same time felt warm and personal. Of course our greatest thanks is to our Wedding Coordinator Liga, for being there with us throughout the whole process and helping us achieve so much. I know there were a few bumps and knots to work out, but I’m sure this is par for the course with organising a wedding and I feel we overcame those challenges with ease. Simply put: we couldn’t have done it without you! Once again, thank you so much for all you, Kara and the team have done to make our special day simply unforgettable. The Master Builder’s will forever have a special place in our hearts with nothing but happy memories. All the best, Sonny and Laura

Our amazing wedding day!
Venue Service

By Lucy and Peter, on 18 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Jul 2018

We chose the Master Builders for our wedding because we wanted a venue where we could hold both the ceremony and the reception, and that was, most importantly, a really nice place to spend a day, and it certainly didn't disappoint! Our guests have not stopped telling us what a good day they had and what a lovely venue it was. Without any additional entertainment or dressing, the venue provided a stunning backdrop to our wedding and the whole process of booking and making the arrangements was made so easy by Liga who always had time for our many questions! The day ran beautifully smoothly and the staff looked after us and our guests brilliantly. We're looking forward to going back often to re-live our amazing wedding day.

The most magical day
Venue Service

By Rachel and Thom, on 18 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 26 Apr 2018

I want to say a huge thank you to the Wedding Coordinator and all the team at the Master Builders for giving Thom and I the most magical day. Our wedding coordinator was so cool, calm and collected on the run up to and on the day, dealing with all my questions and changes with the patience of a saint! We felt in completely safe hands for the team to put out all the decorations - they were exactly as I wanted as per my notes :) Restaurant Manager Jose is an absolute gentlemen too, he is another great asset to the hotel and we were so grateful to him for giving us access to the restaurant and setting up the evening before to ensure the day ran like clockwork. Additionally, the guys on the bar gave great customer service. So many of our family and friends have commented on how fabulous the hotel and staff were, I'm sure many will be returning for a visit - I know Thom and I are already day dreaming about returning again soon! I honestly think I was beaming all day and can't help but smiling thinking back, so thanks again for helping to give us the best day of celebration we could have imagined :)

Our Wedding at The Master Builder's was wonderful. The venue is beautiful but not over the top like some other venues we had looked at. The staff were amazing and very accommodating. Liga, the event co-ordinator, was brilliant throughout the planning process, on hand to answer our many questions. Many of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was and how lovely the staff were.

Memories that will last forever!

We have just hosted our wedding reception here on the 29th July 2017. Hannah and the whole team were just amazing from start to finish! We have always loved the setting and this was not effected at all by the fact that it rained all day long!! All of our guests still commented on how fabulous it was and so Brides and Grooms you day will be perfect come rain of shine here! The food - we had a picnic BBQ and it was so exceptionally generous and reasonable priced and all of our guests loved it. It was such good quality and the same for the evening food. All of the staff were brilliant, they were all so helpful, they were on hand for anything that we needed and were very flexible and unobtrusive throughout the day. A number of our guests stayed and the hotel laid out a special section for breakfast so that we could all share breakfast together and this just added to whole experience and was the perfect end to a perfect weekend. You allowed us to have the flexibility to put on the wedding we wanted, and we are so grateful and look forward to coming back for years to come. Daniel and Naomi Gain Xx

By Victoria and David Kirby, on 26 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 17 Jun 2017

Outstanding Wedding Venue! Such a stunning venue to get married in and our guests who booked out the hotel were all delighted with the venue, rooms and breakfast the next day. The team at the Master Builders could not be more helpful from when we first booked until the day and were extremely professional and friendly. I cannot recommend them more as a wedding venue; the views and the service are incredible and we had a perfect day. Thank you to Hannah and all of the team there who made it so special; we cannot recommend the wedding team and hotel staff more highly. We have always enjoyed the Master Builders as a lunch spot and it will remain very special to us for even more reasons now. We were told very sincerely by one of our guests that it was the best wedding they had ever been to (we certainly felt the same way ourselves)!!
