Set in 18 acres of woodland, right on the doorstep of Bristol itself, this multi-faceted wedding venue consistently impresses and continually surprises all those who step through its stylish portals. The palatial and prestigious Berwick Lodge is situated in Berwick Wood, a serene parcel of woodland a few miles to the northwest of Bristol, just minutes from the M5 and M49.

This conveniently-located country manor house features a stylish range of bedrooms inspired by a bygone ‘Eastern’ epoch, a star-studded restaurant and cookery school and absolutely enchanting grounds. Available to hire exclusively for your wedding, the Lodge can accommodate a considerable number of guests for your reception party - from 100 (or less) up to 400!

History

Berwick Lodge was built towards the end of the reign of Queen Victoria, circa 1890, and well and truly reflects the opulent architectural fashion of the time. Presenting an impressive red-brick Gothic facade, the post-industrial-era edifice appears absolutely stunning nestled in the heart of the serene Berwick Wood.

Today the property is owned and run by Sarah Arikan who, along with husband Fevzi, purchased the then dilapidated building back in 2004. Most notable for her interesting and colourful choice of footwear, Sarah subsequently invested in a labour of love, and worked tirelessly for five years in bringing Berwick Lodge back to its former glory, and today she can finally enjoy the fruits of her recent endeavours embodied in the superb restoration of this fantastic, beautiful and highly-reputed hotel and restaurant.

Facilities

Weddings at Berwick Lodge are exclusive, so the following wealth of facilities will be provided inclusively with your booked package.

The Lodge is licensed to host civil marriage and partnership ceremonies, thus you can choose to formalise your wedding and then go straight on to enjoy your reception afterwards - or you could marry elsewhere and just stage your later celebrations here.

Berwick Lodge is able to cater for up to 100 guests for a reception within the house itself, or you could use the gardens for a marquee, which can accommodate structures able to seat up to 400 people for a formal wedding breakfast.

Accommodation

Berwick Lodge has a selection of ten luxurious bedrooms that are included with the hire of the venue. The design and furnishing of all the rooms (along with other parts of the hotel), was carried out with Anatolian influences strongly in mind. The region of Anatolia in Southeast Europe, including Turkey and Eastern Greece, was dominated by the successive Byzantine and Ottoman Empires, and both left an indelible impact on the architecture and culture of the area. Each chamber in Berwick Lodge is named after historic kings and settlements of ancient Anatolia, and contains stunning luxury features such as marbled tile floors, claw-foot baths, massage showers and huge Victorian brass beds. You will find nothing like this in the rest of the South West!

The fascinating Troya room is an unforgettable space - the pitch-perfect bridal suite, featuring an elevated king-sized bed crafted from an old church pulpit, approached via a small set of stairs on either side - quite magnificent. Other luxurious bedchambers ideal for your wedding night are the beautiful Lydia and Phrygia rooms.

Helipad

Berwick Lodge also boasts its own helipad for those who either own or have hired a helicopter, and are contemplating arriving at their wedding aerially!

Catering

Owner Sarah Arikan lovingly restored this wonderful late Victorian Lodge in 2004 with the sole purpose of introducing a perfect hotel and restaurant experience to the local area. With an enviable reputation for delectable cuisine, this venerable restaurant nurtures some of the South West's most promising up-and-coming culinary talent.

The team of Head Chef Paul O'Neill work endlessly to push the boundaries of the Berwick Lodge restaurant, effectively harnessing and utilising each turning season's produce, always sourcing their food as locally as possible.

  • Janine and Greg – 04/09/15

    It was lovely working with you. We so appreciated the relaxed nature you dealt with the detail! And we will not be strangers – we have found a love for Berwick Lodge and it will now always be a special place to us. As for the wedding it was so good.. wonderful.. lovely.. relaxed.. intimate – we have nothing but good things to say about it - honestly it was perfect and I know lots of hard work goes on behind the scenes to make it that way. There are so many things to say but picking out some great things – the food was wonderful and the service at the table exceptional.. we have had some amazing feedback about the wedding and the venue and the BL team.

  • Pip and Nathan – 13/05/16

    We looked at lots of wedding venues and we are so thrilled that we made the right choice. Weddings are so personal and emotional and we both felt no stress or worries throughout the day as every detail was covered. We were able to relax and enjoy the day fully. Thank you all again, nothing was too much trouble.

  • Karen and Darren – 23/01/16

    Just wanted to say a massive thank you from myself and Darren, for helping to make our wedding day perfect. Everyone was astonished by Berwick, and thought it was beautiful. Especially the people who stayed, as the rooms are just amazing. There were so many kind words and praise for all the lovely staff, nothing was too much, and they made the day flow with easy. From breakfast, and the chef coming in early, to all the waiting staff and bar tenders, to housekeeping, all were helpful and polite. I'd like to say a special thanks to the lovely man who was helping serve dinner, such a nice chap, he also poured me a lovely glass of sweet champagne, and I'd love to know what it was, if he can remember, as it was one of the best I have tasted. And last but no means least, a massive thanks to wedding coordinator Emma for helping me though from start to finish. I felt I could ask her anything, and she would help. It was very relaxed but very professional, just perfect when planning a wedding.
