Owlpen Manor is a beautiful venue in the Cotswolds with accompanying cottages which was fantastic and enabled close friends/family members to stay in for our wedding weekend. More so than this, the team at Owlpen have been absolutely amazing from Day 1. Bella, Hugo and everyone else working at Owlpen went the extra mile and a half to ensure that our special day ran smoothly and without issue! The “Ethos” from the team that a Wedding should be a weekend, rather than just a single day was one that really resonated with us from the very beginning. Being able to have a relaxed meal the night before our special day with family members in the cottages was lovely. Also, having access to the venue the day before and after meant that set-up and takedown were relaxed (As much as it can be the day before a wedding!) All in all, the experience that we had at Owlpen Manor was absolutely amazing. Thank you again to the incredible team there. Would 100% do it again

Absolutely magical I honestly don’t know where to start with writing a review for Owlpen, I feel emotional even trying. Start to finish, the team at Owlpen were the most well organised and professional team you could hope to work with, whilst somehow managing to also be the most friendly, kind, good humoured and accommodating people you could meet. There is a real family feel when working with the team and they have gone above and beyond, whether it be allowing countless visits, responding quickly and informatively to my barrage of emails for the last 1.5 years, to looking after us so well on the wedding day. So many of our guests commented on how well organised the day was, and that was down to the well oiled machine that is the Owlpen staff! The place itself is a piece of magic that it really takes seeing in person to appreciate. Set in a Cotswold valley, there is a real sense of intimate privacy whilst also projecting a vast feeling that comes from having the full run of the place; there isn’t anything like looking down on the beautiful gardens filled with your friends and family bustling around in their finery, that is an image that will stay with me forever. Being able to have a portion of our guests stay the night before and the night of was incredibly unique, and again, the team went well out of their way to accommodate for every last detail. I could never of dreamed that we could have our friends swimming in a lake with a picnic on the bank the day before our wedding, and have a house dedicated to after party fun around a firepit. I’ll never be able to thank Owlpen enough for giving us the best day of our lives.

How to start married life well We have just returned from the perfect midweek wedding of our son and daughter-in-law. We knew even before the day that we were dealing with a highly professional team, who knew what they were doing, but at the same time took the time to listen and accommodate the wants and desires of the happy couple. Planning a wedding during lockdown has not been easy, but Bella and her team supported us throughout. On the day, the Owlpen manor team ensured that our Bride and Groom had the most perfect of days and began married life without any stress. Set in the beautiful Cotswold hills, the facilities for the wedding were beautiful. The staff on hand were obliging, and unobtrusive ensuring guests had their drinks topped up and everyone knew where they needed to be and when. The food was great and everyone had a fantastic time. We were lucky enough to stay on site in the wonderful Grist Mill. I would highly recommend this as place to stay, even if you’re not planning a wedding, the accommodations laid out over three floors included a fully equipped kitchen, dining area and comfortable lounge. A huge thank you to Bella and the Owlpen team who made our stay relaxing and helped the happy couple start married life together without stress or worry.

We wanted a relaxed and casual wedding, where everyone could get together after being apart so long and Owlpen's layout allowed that. We got married in the Manor House (intimate), had drinks and sweet grazing in the garden (beautiful and private) and then went to the barns for the evening. The disco and bar was in the Cider Barn and the tables for 130 people in the Pole Barn. This was ideal as those who wanted to catch up with friends and family didn't have to compete with the dancing. The fire pits and festoon lights made the most of the excellent weather. We'd recommend Owlpen in a heart beat, mostly due to the staff being so attentive without being intrusive and getting emotionally invested in our day.

I was recently one of the bridesmaids at a wedding here and I would 100% recommend it! The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous and the perfect backdrop for photos. All of the staff were so lovely and they really helped to make the day extra special.
