The List {The Pumping House}

I’m rather partial to a heritage venue, and The Pumping House is going to be putting some big fat ticks in your Venue must have boxes. Recently refurbished and repurposed into a stunning wedding venue in the heart of the Sherwood Forest, we absolutely adore the options you get from this gorgeous Grace II property. With heaps of charm and character thanks to it’s quirky little rooms, and a team whose main focus is to ensure you have the most perfect day, I don’t think The Pumping House is going to be a maybe for much longer…

In the heart of Sherwood Forest, within its own 6 acres of stunning woodland, sits The Pumping House – a mix old meets new. With heaps of original features, including the distinctive chimney and internal brickwork, and a cool, new, chic vibe, The Pumping House is like no other venue.
Set over two impressive floors there are so many options for your wedding day. Hold a civil ceremony in the Ollerton Room, with its old style chapel chairs and beautiful flooring. Move between the hidden gems and quirky little themed rooms, with a cinema room, and a botanical ‘gin’ room, before moving down to the main engine hall with its impressive 50ft high glass ceiling. This was once was the heart of the pumping station and housed the main engine, and it can now be the heart of your wedding.


“When we stumbled across The Pumping House as a wedding venue, we could not believe our luck! We loved the design-mix of old and new, and thought it would be a stunning location for our wedding…and we weren’t wrong. Jo and The Pumping House Team were phenomenal and our dream winter wedding would not have been realised without their incredible support. Jo was a massive help from day one – from the planning and organisation of the wedding (with many late night emails of support!), to the dressing of the venue in the most beautiful Christmas decorations, to finally, ensuring that the day was a breath-taking success. We would recommend this venue and its staff, including Gail and her wonderful catering team, whole-heartedly. Thank you so much for helping us to start our married life together in such a perfect way.”

“We booked our wedding at The Pumping House before the renovations had even been completed, the minute we drove into the woods, through those iron gates, walked up those steps and through the doors we loved it!! We saw the Pumping House progress from a construction site into the beautiful place it is now. Jo has been amazing since day one and both Jo and Amie on the day made everything so perfect, the hard work they both put in certainly paid off. There isn’t a single thing we would change about the whole day. The food, the venue, the rooms, the service, the help and support that received throughout the whole process was amazing. Thank you so so much Jo and Amie for making our day so magical! We would 1000000000% recommend this venue to anyone. So many people who shared our day with us commented on how beautiful the building and venue was.”
