Anyone for a woodland Wedding Feast__ It


What's Included

Here at Upthorpe Wood, we host a maximum of 10 unique woodland weddings per year, ensuring that each and every wedding is spectacular!

Our weddings are hosted between May-September and only at weekends.  All weekends are priced at the same basic venue rate, excluding Bank Holidays for up to 110 (this includes all babies/children)

Although we class ourselves as dry hire, we feel that there are basic facilities which need to be included to make your wedding planning easier, so unlike other dry hire venues you'll find lots more included in the rate.  Bespoke prices are available, as are additional hours.  Did you know we hire the woodland for all sorts of functions from birthday celebrations and private dining to christenings and proposals?

2022 Weekend Hire Rate:

That's a pretty cool deal for a dry hire venue.  With 2 barns and a chill out lounge, there's certainly more than enough undercover areas to put to rest the 'What if it rains?' question.  Please check out our Blog page for further info on how we calculate our venue hire fee.


Thinking of a gorgeous, much more intimate Upthorpe Wood Elopement wedding, with up to 18 (includes children/babies) of your nearest and dearest? Read our elopement  blog  for more detail.
