The Venue, Bowers Mill is a lovingly restored historic wedding venue located in the heart of the picturesque countryside. The Venue encapsulates the phrase ‘rustic charm’.


Onsite accommodation – do we get priority bookings?

Although we now benefit from having a hotel onsite, this is a separate business from ourselves. The onsite Bowers Mill aparthotel books on a first come first served basis. For direct enquiries including pricing and availability please email; or call 01422 893 494. We have been a venue for over 20 years and have lots of lovely local places nearby for your guests to enjoy.

What do you provide on the tables for my wedding breakfast?

We provide chairs, table linen, crockery, cutlery and glassware. You will receive a décor inventory list following confirmation of your booking. If you are filling our vases with fresh or laying across trestle tables; foliage/flowers must be provided by yourself or a florist.

Are you a dog friendly venue?

We welcome ‘well behaved’ dogs. From experience, weddings, lots of people and loud noises can unsettle animals. Many couples will bring their dog for the ceremony and photographs and then have their pet collected, so their pet is not overwhelmed.

Is it a set menu within the packages?

Yes; we will also accommodate for ‘dietary requirements’ ie; vegan, gluten free, allergies etc. Multiple choices are available to serve guests which are charged at an additional supplement. We can offer you either a set three course menu, or alternatively we can offer you a relaxed & informal wedding breakfast with grazing boards for example.


The transitions from ceremony to reception and reception to evening party were seamless. Our wedding coordinator embraced all our cultural traditions. The food was incredible and the chef was flexible in providing a range of desserts and Christmas themed canapés. The Venue is dog friendly, so our dogs could be with us on our special day. The inside of the Venue is beautiful even without decoration and it was wonderful that we could use the Venue's own Christmas decorations as part of our day.

We had our wedding at The Venue. From day one of planning our wedding organiser Rebecca made it such a pleasurable experience. She helped us feel so at ease and I can honestly say by the time our wedding day came around we felt that our special days events were truly being looked after. Our reception was amazing. From the beautiful food we received to the fantastic waiting staff who delivered everything timely and professionally. We moved seamlessly onto our evening party. There's a great selection of drinks at The Venue particularly if you are partial to a good real ale like me. Again everything ran like clockwork and our night guests couldn't compliment The Venue enough. The grounds of The Venue also provide a beautiful back drop for some amazing photos. From the waterfalls to the romantically lit pagoda. Sometimes its the personal touches that make a special occasion just that extra special. We were certainly provided with those. I would like to give a special mention to Adam, Nicola, Rebecca, and Lucy and not forgetting Nick the DJ for making our dreams come true.

Our Wedding was perfect and stress free! The Venue staff were amazing from the planning to our big day. They coordinated throughout the day and everything ran smoothly. Our day was everything we imagined and the venue was beautiful. Our guest still comment on how romantic the space was and how amazing the food was.

The Venue are exceptional at what they do due to having a fabulous team both behind the scenes and front of house. The venue is stunning inside, we had a small wedding yet managed to make it feel intimate by using the spinning room area. The space is so adaptable and what’s great is you can style it to your own personal taste. The food is AMAZING, the chef is absolutely fabulous and you can deviate from the standard packages….which we did, and we are so pleased we did. We give the Venue 5*

Nicola and Stuart

The Venue made our day everything we could possibly have wished for and more. From recommending suppliers to the amazing food and even changing where our entertainment would happen on the day of our wedding due to the unexpected glorious weather! Many of our guests still talk about our wedding as the best they've ever been to! Everyone had such an amazing time, we'll cherish the memories forever and couldn't have asked or a better Venue. We'd pick them over and over again without any hesitation.
