Best venue ever!!!

Words do not even start to describe how grateful we are to Jayne and the whole team at Munsley! To say she went above and beyond is the understatement of the century. At every stage (from initial viewing/booking to the big day) Jayne was quickly contactable and provided essential advise to make everything run super smoothly. We did a festival wedding and the giant tipis really lent themselves to our theme alongside the stunning rustic and romantic setting.

The venue itself is exceptionally beautiful and feels like a real hidden gem in Herefordshire. All our guests commented on how magical and special it felt in the Orchard.

We were blessed with Sunshine, but equally there were plenty of options for rain - so don’t let the fear of bad weather that put you off! I’d defiantly recommend booking this venue for a wedding - I wish we could do it every year!!!

Outstanding

What can we say……..as soon as we saw The Orchard we instantly fell in love with it. We then saw the church which was the cherry on the cake for us!! We are so happy we had our wedding here. Jayne’s guidance and support is amazing. The venue is stunning and Jayne really helps you plan your day from the get go!! Jayne and Ian are wonderful people who look after you 110%. Without Jayne, Ian and their team’s help on the day we would never of had the perfect wedding. We feel extremely blessed to have been told about this venue. Once we visited The Orchard we knew it was the venue for us!! Just perfect.

Excellent, personal and nothing was too much trouble

We had a beautiful ceremony at the Orchard at Munsley. The location is beautiful and both Jayne and Ian made sure everything was looked after on the run-up to the day and on the day. I wish we could do it again. If you are thinking of holding your wedding or event there I would highly recommend it. Its a family run business and it means that they manage it in a very personal way, with attention to detail and nothing is too much trouble.

Beautiful Venue and Amazingly Run

Fantastic venue!

We had our wedding here July 2021.
Firstly, the venue is utterly stunning. The Orchard looks amazing, the views of the surrounding hills are great and with a very picturesque church.
Jayne (The Venue Manager) looked after us unbelievably well. Throughout the lead up to wedding she was always very helpful in answering any questions we had, helped arrange our suppliers and worked to ensure everything was running smoothly on the big day.
To book the venue was also excellent value

Beautiful venue and amazingly run. We cannot recommend it highly enough

Absolutely wonderful!

My husband and I were delighted with our reception. This is the ideal place to have your reception. The orchard, pond and church make this reception idyllic. It is perfect for getting fantastic photos for your wedding. Jayne was warm, welcoming and friendly and gave us plenty of options to choose from for our wedding day. Jayne organised all the preparations so the day could go ahead. She also helped us set up before our wedding day which was very kind. She was also around on the day to answer any questions and to help when needed. Thank you for helping us and providing us with a spectacular reception on our wedding day Jayne!

Just amazing

We found ourselves without a venue with 8 months to go and stumbled across the orchard online. One panicked call to Jayne and she was able to see us the next day even though it was a Bank Holiday and they had a wedding imminently.

We fell in love with The Orchard instantly even on a cloudy day. The quaint little church, the beautiful lake with the willows and ducks, the old barn buildings the list is endless. Jayne went absolutely above and beyond and she truly saved our day, that’s just the kind of person she is. She was beyond helpful, planning from London and making an old wedding plan fit a new venue meant lots of emails back and forth. When the day came the sun shone and it was so beautiful, the most amazing relaxed day with everyone we loved. Our suppliers loved the venue and a lot of them said it was the best venue they’d ever been to and the venue makes for some absolutely stunning photos.

We feel so lucky we happened across the Orchard and got to make incredible memories there. One of the best things is you can transform it completely to your vision it is so unique. We could not recommend Jayne and Ian or the Orchard more. The whole team will do everything and more to make your day special. Incredibly welcoming to same sex couples, everyone had a blast - don’t have anymore words really, just amazing!

Thank you for making it so special

Dream Venue and host!

Where to even start?! We viewed the Orchard a year before our wedding and knew pretty quickly that it was the place for us. It was relaxed, picturesque and quiet. But the biggest selling point? Jayne. That was what our decision really came down to. Jayne is one of the nicest, enthusiastic, happy and calming person you could have around! From the get go, she was full of ideas, suggestions and was always there to answer our questions. Having her and Ian there the day before to help set up was an absolute godsend and then Jayne on the day was just brilliant.
The venue itself, is nothing without the fabulous team that comes with it. But along with that, the Orchard is just perfect. If you are looking for something relaxed and intimate, where you can really get creative, the Orchard at Munsley is your place. I wish we could do it all over again, because it truly was the most amazing day.

Absolutely Stunning

Incredible venue with an incredible team. We are sooooo thankful we found this place. Our wedding weekend in May 2022 was amazing. If you are looking for a stunning location surrounded by jaw dropping scenery then you are in for a treat.
Our vision of having a big party where everyone we love could come and celebrate with festival vibes and an informal feel was definitely what we got. With our very own blossom confetti too.

The space is soooooo flexible and Jayne was amazing in helping us create something special, from our glamping field for all our guests to a personal beautiful ceremony under the naked tipi.
Over the whole weekend Jayne & the team worked tirelessly to give us the wkend of what dreams are made

The perfect wedding venue

The Orchard at Munsley is an exceptionally picturesque, unique and special wedding venue hidden away in the stunning Herefordshire countryside.

We recently had our wedding reception at The Orchard at Munsley, following our marriage ceremony in the quaint neighboring ST Bartholomew’s church. The Orchard at Munsley really is the best of the Herefordshire countryside with its beautiful rows of apple trees and gorgeous surrounding views, providing an idyllic setting for a special wedding.

Depending on your wedding size they have a range of Tipi options, which are beautifully lit and presented. We were lucky enough that, as a small wedding, we were able to have the bar in the tipi and enjoyed a unique opportunity to have our wedding breakfast outside in the Orchard. The venue offers numerous beautiful backdrops for wedding photos including a lake with sweeping willow trees and the gorgeous orchard itself. We have been left with an album full of stunning pictures and even more special memories of a fantastic day at the perfect venue.

We were blown away by not only the venue but the team behind it. Jayne and Ian were pivotal to the enjoyment of our day and went out of their way to make it the perfect day for us. From our first meeting to the day itself Jayne and Ian were on hand for any queries or to chat through any ideas, to which they were always open to and up for any challenge. They took time to understand exactly what we wanted from the day and surpassed our expectations in delivering it. Their approach was truly personable and by the time it came to the day it felt as if we were celebrating with a couple of extra friends.

You really are made to feel special at The Orchard at Munsley, we cannot thank Jayne, Ian, and the whole team enough and would not hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone. If we had to do it all again there is no question it would be at The Orchard at Munsley.

Breathtaking venue, Jayne is a star

From start to finish it felt like Jayne had our best interests to hand, answering questions and queries day and night and always doing her up most to be positive, reassuring and so helpful to us both. We organised our wedding ourselves, doing so without a dedicated wedding planner, however, we really felt that Jayne was there was with us every step of the way and we could lean on her expertise and opinion at any time, she has also accrued a wonderful list of vendors that will work just as hard to ensure your day is perfect. So if you want a venue with draw dropping views, that makes even the hardest to please people sing it's praise, somewhere that can create the perfect back drop for your pictures or just a more casual, unpretentious, and relaxed environment with a owner that really goes above and beyond then we strongly advise you choose the Orchard at Munsley. It gave us the best day of our lives and we guarantee you will not be disappointed.
