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.

Such a lovely spot!
Venue Service

By Laura and Sonny, on 12 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Jul 2018

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

By Peter and Lucy, on 12 Oct 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 best day of celebration we could have imagined

By Rachel and Thom, on 12 Oct 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 :)

By Kathryn and Moray, on 07 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Apr 2018

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 had the most amazing wedding at The Master Builders Hotel . All of the staff were friendly and helpful, and we mean everyone, from the reception staff, bar staff, waiters/waitresses, housekeeping staff etc. nobody could do enough for us or our guests, We were so impressed by how smoothly the day ran, it was exactly how we imagined it would be and we take away 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)!!

You guys and the hotel should be so proud
Venue Service

By Kieran & Gemma, on 07 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Jun 2017

Morning Hannah, I hope you are well and had a good weekend! We are back to work now and sadly back to reality. We both really just wanted to drop you a message to say thank you very very much from the bottom of our hearts for putting together the day of our lives, honestly it was perfect and we could not fault a thing. You were great, as were all of the staff at the Master Builders. The Restaurant Manager, Rob and his colleague Charley were fantastic all day and so accommodating later in the evening also, that played a massive part in everyone having the best time so please pass on our special thanks to them. Honestly we do not know how to put it into words how perfect everything was, literally couldn’t fault a thing. The food was amazing (but we knew this was going to be the case from the taster evening), the decorations were stunning and organisation was spot on, you even managed to sort the weather for us! ;) You guys and the hotel should be so proud, we cannot think of a hotel or venue anywhere that could put on the wedding day that you did, hosted by the best catering/events team I have ever experienced. Thank you again Hannah and we would like to take the opportunity to wish you all the best for your wedding in Italy this summer! Speaking from experience now you will have the best most overwhelming day. ? If there is anything we can do to express our thanks or promote what you and the team do then please do not hesitate to let me know. Best wishes Kieran & Gemma

We had the best day!

By Emma Davies, on 06 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 20 May 2017

Hi Hannah Just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything 2 weeks ago! We had the best day and couldn’t have done it without you, Paul, James (I hope this is his name) etc etc. The hotel looked amazing, so clean and tidy and the service on the day really was excellent. Everyone loved the food too! Also on the Sunday, I really appreciated that we still got looked after for lunch - it was really busy in the pub because there was a triathlon on, but they let us get our food and drink sorted without waiting hours. Hope you enjoy your wedding at the end of the summer! BW Emma x

By Emma & Dan Hills, on 06 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 06 May 2017

Hi Hannah, I hope you're well? I am so sorry that it's taken me so long to send this - we've only just got back from our honeymoon - but Dan and I wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you did in the run up to our wedding and on the day itself. We had the best day ever and loved every moment. We had lots of lovely comments from guests about the venue, the food and the rooms so I think everyone had a great time too! Thank you again, you really were an amazing support to us and made sure we had the perfect day. I'm sure we'll pop down for lunch over the summer so hope to see you then. Good luck with your wedding plans! Emma and Dan xx

The venue was just PERFECT for us.

By Jane and Colin, on 09 May 2017Date of Wedding - 14 Apr 2017

Hi Hannah, Now that life has quietened down I am finding the time to thank all those who made our day special. I thought I would drop you a line to say a further thank you to you and all your team at the Master Builders for making our wedding so special. Everything was perfect, we loved our room, the Prosecco and sandwiches in our room before getting ready. Our guests enjoyed arriving and gathering in the bar and lounge ahead of the wedding and they all loved the drinks reception and canapés. The wedding breakfast was delicious and all the staff served and looked after us really well. For those who stayed the night it was a lovely surprise to all have breakfast around one large table – a perfect morning after the night before. Thank you also for displaying the table plan, the flowers, the candles, the cake and everything you did to make the room look so lovely. The Master Builder’s is such a lovely spot for a wedding – the venue was just PERFECT for us. Thank you all so much. Jane and Colin xx

We had the most incredible day, helped by the fantastic sunshine! All our guests have commented on the brilliant service and delicious food. We were so impressed! Thank you Hannah for all your assistance in the build up to the wedding, and only being a phone call or email away! You seemed to be able to read my mind and knew exactly how I wanted the day! Jose and Karina, thank you for looking after us during the meal and the evening reception! You and the team couldn't do any more for us and we really appreciate it! Wishing you all the best, With love from Sophie and Ian Tagg.
