Weddings at Windrush Hyde Estate

Seeking an exclusive, intimate wedding in the Cotswolds? The elegant Windrush Hyde Estate is the postcard-perfect venue for up to 32 guests. The estate is irresistibly romantic, with its sandy Cotswold stone and gently undulating, 14.5-acre grounds.

The award-winning, walled gardens, created by celebrated designer Jinny Blom, are an idyllic backdrop for your drinks reception. Classic English blooms scent the scene as your guests toast to the soundtrack of gentle water features trickling in the background. Views out over the River Windrush frame everything beautifully.

When it comes to accommodation, your guests will have exclusive use of the estate. A converted five-suite barn, a five-bedroom Tudor manor and three luxurious, self-contained buildings are all within easy walking distance so that everyone is kept together, while simultaneously enjoying the utmost privacy.

How it works

Windrush Hyde Estate is licensed to hold relaxed civil ceremonies in the beautiful Peacock Garden under the rustic Peacock Shed. 

In Winter there is the very informal option of the Barn lounge area which is also licensed or you can hire outdoor heaters under the Peacock Shed to keep guests warm for a romantic setting with twinkling lights.

There is also a beautiful C of E church only five minutes walk from the Estate where we can put you in touch with the friendly local vicar.

The gardens are idyllic for reception drinks or choose from either the Barn Lounge or Manor House if the weather is poor. The wedding breakfast takes place in the Grand Manor Dining Room which seats up to 32.

Unfortunately we cannot have any music outside after 8pm so any entertainment after this must take place in the Manor House and be approved by Temple Guiting prior to arrival. A small informal dance floor area can be set up in the lounge and music can continue until midnight.
