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 twelve 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 under Head Chef Istvan Ulmann 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.

Reviews

  • Anita and Neal - December 2019

    Had my wedding at Berwick Lodge on New Year Eve , was amazing , nothing was too much for the staff to do Simone the wedding planner was there all the way through to make sure the day went smoothly, would definitely recommend Berwick Lodge as somewhere to get married

  • Rachel and Steve - December 2019

    We had our wedding at Berwick Lodge on the 14th December 2019. Everything from the venue, the food, the staff, the rooms, absolutely fantastic. Simone our wedding planner at Berwick Lodge is just amazing and made the whole experience stress free. Her attention to detail was incredible. I cannot recommend her and this hotel enough. Even the owner Sarah was on hand every step of the way and made the day so personal. We even were able to have our dog attend to delight of our guests. Every guest commented that the food was the best they had eaten at a wedding and they also commented on the helpful, attentive staff. Definitely a 5 out of 5 venue.

  • Mike and Lou - October 2019

    We had a wonderful wedding day at Berwick Lodge in October 2019. From the very first time we saw the venue about a year earlier we knew it was special. What we didn't know then was that how much more special it was made by all that work there, from Simone who made the planning and organising seem so easy and then all of the team on the day for which nothing was too much trouble. The food was wonderful and the bedrooms are so nice you really don't want to leave them. Our only complaint is that we wished the day could have lasted longer!

  • Beverley

    We had the most perfect day! Simone was our wedding planner and she took away all the stress of organising.
    The staff, the food, the rooms, everything was fabulous.
    A button popped off my dress and a staff member came out into the garden and happily sewed it back on for me - service at its best.
    We had so many compliments from our guests saying how impressed they were with the food, service and venue and how well the day had flowed.
    Thank you for our wonderful wedding x

  • Russell and Holly - October 2019

    We got married at Berwick Lodge in October 2019. Simone was our wedding coordinator and she made the whole process of wedding planning simple and a joy. She was there to support us and also gave us some great advice. Berwick Lodge is a great venue and on the wedding day all of the support staff helped make our wedding day so special. Our guests absolutely loved the venue, the food was delicious, it was perfect. We are extremely grateful for everyone at Berwick Lodge helping make our wedding day so special

  • David & Caroline

    The venue is outstanding, the staff are very efficient and friendly and the food is excellent.
    We had our wedding at the Lodge, and we had the most fabulous of days.
    All of the guests were blown away with the occasion, the Staff coordinated it perfectly.
    Nothing is too much trouble for them, we will be going back regularly as the rooms and food would be hard to beat.


  • Natasha - September 2019

    We got married in September 2019. Everything from start to finish was absolutely fantastic. The staff were more than accommodating. Every single one of our guests commented on how brilliant the whole day was.
    I can't express how phenomenal the whole experience was. Thank you so much to everyone at Berwick!

  • Lynn and Ian - 12/08/19

    We had the most loveliest of days on our wedding day on 12 August 2019. Friends and family gathered at the beautiful Berwick Lodge (a hidden gem) to celebrate our special day.
    We had beautiful food and our guests loved the day, thanks to Simone (our Wedding Planner), the day went without a hitch. We couldn’t have wished for anything else.
    Berwick Lodge not only has lovely staff, beautiful rooms but beautiful gardens in which to take all the photos you wish.
    My husband and I would highly recommend having your wedding here.

  • Jade and Will - 26/02/19

    We had the most special of days! We send you our sincerest gratitude in helping the day to run smoothly and giving us excellent support leading up to the day. You have been absolutely fantastic, we can’t thank you enough! We’d also like you to pass on our thanks to all the staff who made the day run so perfectly. We have had comments from a number of our guests about how fantastic the team at Berwick were. Many guests have said it was the best wedding they’d been to!

  • Chezzie and Tom - 29/09/18

    We had a fantastic day and couldn't have asked for better. Thanks so much to you and the team for making sure the day ran so smoothly! The venue is fantastic and the friendly atmosphere you have cultivated suited us perfectly... the weather was just a very lucky bonus.

  • Chris and Kim - 08/07/18

    We can't thank you enough for everything you did for us. When we came to you at Christmas we were at a low point. Our wedding renewal plans had gone wrong and we were at a loss as to how we were going to get back on track. After the visit to Berwick and meeting you, our hope was restored, culminating in the wonderful day that we had on Sunday. You have been on point with everything throughout all the arrangements and an absolute pleasure to deal with. Everyone at Berwick has made us feel welcome and the day just ran like clockwork. We would recommend you as a venue to anyone who asked us.

  • Jamie and Stuart - 27/10/17

    We have had the most perfect experience with Berwick Lodge, from the moment we found their website and visited the venue, till the aftermath of our wedding day. Emilie the wedding coordinator delivers first class service every step of the way and we were able to feel calm and relaxed throughout. The wedding itself ran so smoothly and all of the staff at Berwick Lodge worked so hard to make everything look and feel top notch. The food was STUNNING! Our friends and family were so impressed and some said it was the best wedding food they’d ever had. Even our fussiest of eaters cleared every plate! The beautiful country house with its 14 bespoke rooms and cosy atmosphere speak for themselves. The grounds are stunning with beautiful views - a great backdrop for our photographs. All of the staff are warm and welcoming and if anything needed doing, it was acted upon immediately. Thank you to everyone at Berwick Lodge for helping us to have the most perfect wedding day. We will definitely be back to visit and highly recommend this as a wonderful place to visit and stay.

  • Amy and Ben - 21/11/17

    From my wife and me, we would like to thank you and the staff for making our wedding truly wonderful. We couldn't ask for anything more! All we've had is great feedback from everyone else. So thank you so much!

  • Lesley and Adam - 16/11/17

    Wow, what an amazing day. We are blown away at how hard everyone worked to make our day special. So happy with how everything went. You guys really do know how to make everyone feel comfortable while effortlessly serving 75 dinners! Cannot wait to book a little two person table for dinner and sit there reminiscing about the BEST day of our lives.

  • 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.
