Wedding and Event Venue

Great Lodge – an idyllic setting in which to create the wedding of your dreams.

We want your day to be special and unique and whether your taste is traditional or quirky, this family run business aims to support you in making your wedding exactly as you want it from start to finish. From croquet on the lawn to fairground stalls in the garden, the choice is yours.

Our newly refurbished, Anne of Cleves Barn is available for wedding ceremonies and receptions between 1st April and 31st October each year.  An impressive Grade 1 listed brick and tile barn, it was built when the estate was owned by Anne of Cleves following the annulment of her marriage to King Henry VIII.

The barn can seat up to 150 guests, but can be divided for a smaller wedding.

Our beautiful walled garden and extensive grounds are also available for your exclusive use. Outside ceremonies can take place beside our lake in our handcrafted green oak wedding pavilion. 

Guests can wander through the gardens and visit our vineyard. A meandering path takes you through our new woodland and up a spiral path to the top of our mound.

We are limited to 25 weddings a year between April and October and will never be a ‘production line’ We want you to have plenty of time to prepare and set up for your big day. We will never have more than one wedding a weekend. Please note: the barn is not available for hire from November – March or on a Sunday.
We do not require you to use specified caterers or suppliers. We have a list of recommended suppliers you may use if you wish, but you are free to make your own arrangements.We can supply award winning wine from our vineyard but you are free to bring your own and we will not charge corkage. We can run a cash bar for you at no extra charge.We will have accommodation on site by 2018.
