VENUE HIRE RATES
Here at Upthorpe Wood, we host just 15 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 guests.
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?

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.
