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.

Staff were fantastic
Venue Service

By Megan and Jamie, on 15 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Jun 2019

We had a fabulous day and wish we could do it all again! The day flew by which was such a shame but it was still amazing! Your staff were fantastic - can’t thank them enough. And we would definitely rate the service and venue more than a 5 it’s a 10 out of 10!

Staff were fantastic and worked so hard
Venue Service

By Ally and Ramiro, on 17 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Jun 2019

We want to say a huge thank you to our Wedding Coordinator for all she did to make our wedding so special. She really did do everything to make us feel at ease - we ended up having the best day ever! Thank you for your meticulous planning and organisation skills, the whole day flowed seamlessly! We had so many wonderful comments about the venue and how perfect it was - our guests loved the scenery and all of them commented on how delicious the food was and how comfy the rooms were. Staff were fantastic and worked so hard - despite them being there long after most of our guests had gone to bed they were there the next morning serving up a truly delicious breakfast with a smile. If we were to give a rating it would 10 out of 5! Thank you so much for all you did to make our day very special.

A truly perfect day

We had a truly perfect day and The Master Builder’s played a massive part in making it so special. Thank you to your team for ensuring everything ran smoothly – especially to Andy for always being on call whenever needed throughout the afternoon and evening.

Our perfect day

Thank you so much for organising our perfect day. It was even better than we could have ever imagined. Everyone said they had a wonderful time. Thank you so much for everything!

Choice of wedding venue 5 out of 5
Venue Service

By Robyn and Dan, on 15 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 24 May 2019

Firstly I just want to say a HUGE thank you to our Wedding Coordinator Liga and everyone at the Master Builders for hosting our wedding and doing such a fantastic job. It was a pleasure to work with Liga, she made everything so easy and nothing was too much trouble. We also want to thank the rest of the staff, particularly Andy the Restaurant Manager for being such a great sport on the day. Everyone else, from the waiters and waitresses to the reception staff and cleaners were all lovely too. All of our guests loved the food, the setting, and many said they would return to the Master Builders. We would have no hesitation in giving our choice of wedding venue 5/5 and given the option to go back in time we would 100% do it there again!

friendliest of the staff
Venue Service

By Susan and Declan, on 15 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 11 May 2019

Thank you for a wonderful wedding. Without exception, our guests all remarked on the warmth of the welcome and the friendliest of the staff. Andy, the restaurant manager and his team delivered a supremely professional, warm and friendly service. We couldn’t have wished for more.

Lovely hotel
Venue Service

By Sue and Richard, on 15 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 19 Apr 2019

We had a wonderful day at The Master Builder’s – the ceremony was just as we wanted, relaxed and low key and we were so pleased with the whole day – everyone said how much they enjoyed it and what a lovely hotel it was. So thank you for a very memorable day.

It remains such a special place for us!
Venue Service

By Rob and Jenny, on 13 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 21 Feb 2019

Thank you so so much for everything you did for us, everything went so smoothly and was even better than we had envisaged. Every single member of staff was so attentive and kind and our extra thanks to the restaurant manager that day he kept it running brilliantly amidst a bit of a rowdy crowd!! Everyone has commented how much fun they had but also how stunning the venue was, tasty the food was and how it was just so seamless. They all had such a great time. It was more than everything we wanted. Thank you again to our Wedding Coordinator for arranging everything from the engagement to our wedding day. I’m so pleased we came to the Master Builders first and didn’t need to look any further. Our day was so special and that was down to our Wedding Coordinator Liga. Every member of staff there deserves so much thanks. We are already recommending and I’m aware of people coming back for dinner, afternoon tea etc as well!! It remains such a special place for us!

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.

Thanks for making our day so memorable
