This 18th century mansion house is both elegant and stylish and showcases an Italian Baroque style in its interior. It's nestled in 440 acres of its own grounds just on the edge of the Cotswolds in Oxfordshire. The house holds plenty of history dating back to 1710 and its many wedding suites reflect this ever changing story.

The Crowne Plaza Hotel is situated next to the mansion and offers another location for your wedding. Heythrop Park Resort can accommodate civil ceremonies, wedding breakfasts and receptions and offers a huge range of accommodation options for you and your guests.

History

The mansion was built in 1701 for Charles Talbot, the 1st Duke of Shrewsbury. In 1831 part of the house was destroyed in a fire and made it uninhabitable until Thomas Brassey bought it for his son 38 years later and restored and extended the house.

Amongst its historical features includes the Whale Cave, used to store part of a whale skeleton, the beautiful walled garden designed by Brassey and plunging waterfalls. All make a stunning backdrop for those memorable wedding photos.

Reviews

  • Vineeta and Gordon – 25/03/17

    We had an absolutely fantastic day and everything ran to plan and was executed perfectly. Our guests really enjoyed it too and people saying it was the best wedding they have ever attended. The venue, of course, was admired by everyone, the organisation of everything, the entertainment and the food. So many people have described the wedding breakfast as “superb”, for both the Indian and non Indian dishes. He did us proud, the Indians really enjoyed the Indian food (which speaks volumes for Chef and his staff) and so many people said the chicken supreme sauce was delicious. It was commented on that all of the food was served piping hot and beautifully presented.

    The waiting staff and others who helped make sure everything on the day ran smoothly also deserve our thanks. Richard the Toastmaster was fabulous.The evening was great - Richie did a great job on the disco and the fireworks were amazing. The hog roast was delicious - so I’m told, I didn’t eat any - and the cake went down a storm too. As well as actually being married now, we had the perfect wedding and everyone seemed to love it.

  • Hattie and Matt – 16/07/16

    Thank you so much for helping to give us our perfect wedding day. We really appreciate all your help and organisation, it meant we trusted you whole heartedly and knew everything was in your capable hands. The staff on the day were brilliant, and Daniel was amazing. He explained everything to us clearly and concisely, we really appreciated this. The day ran so smoothly and we could not have asked for anything more. The service was brilliant, everyone was very polite and appeared to be responding to any requests. The food was amazing, we had so many positive comments! We will definitely be recommending Heythrop Park to any of our friends in the future!! Thank you so much!

  • Claire and Jamie – 15/10/16

    We just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you again for all the hard work you and Suzanne put into our wedding day. We had a fantastic day and everyone has said how much they enjoyed it. When we checked out we were told we would get a complimentary stay for our anniversary so we are looking forward to being back at Heythrop for that.
