History

Owned at one time by King Henry VIII, Botleys Mansion's original building is believed to have been constructed in the 14th century. It proceeded to pass into the hands of numerous owners who let the house remain unaltered, until it was purchased by MP Joseph Mawbey in the 1760s.

Notable architect, Kenton Crouse, proceeded to completely redesign the house. The mansion that now stands was built between 1765-1769 at the same time as Crouse was remodelling 10 Downing Street.

Damaged severely by a fire in 1995, Botleys Mansion underwent a £6.5 Million restoration project and was purchased by Bijou in 2009. It has been used to host weddings and events ever since.

Ceremony and Reception Rooms

The Green Room

A soft, light space that has been lovingly restored to reflect the elegance of a traditional English country house, the Green Room can host ceremonies and smaller receptions, lending an air of intimacy to your wedding day.

Ceremony capacity - 131 guests

Wedding breakfast capacity - 80 guests

The Atrium

Originally an enclosed courtyard, a glass roof was added to the Atrium in 2009. It has since been lavishly decorated with crystal chandeliers and interior materials that give the space the natural feel it originally had, whilst maintaining the same sense of grandeur possessed by the rest of the house.

Ceremony capacity - 250 guests

Wedding breakfast capacity - 250 guests

The Temple Garden

For those with smaller guest lists who wish to take advantage of Botleys Mansion's stunning grounds, the Temple wing of the Atrium opens out onto an aisle pathway that leads through the Temple Garden and is a beautiful and serene ceremony location.

Receptions

Up to 500 people can be accommodated throughout the house for an evening reception for those couples wishing to extend evening invitations to further guests. As an exclusive use venue, the house lends itself wonderfully to larger parties, allowing your guests to spill into its various rooms.

The Dining Room, the Morning Room, and the Library are all lovely spaces to allow your guests to socialise and relax in, and offer further space for added extras such as a photo booth or casino games.

Catering and Accommodation

Bijou boasts its own specialist team of chefs and caterers ensuring that your wedding breakfast is the delicious banqueting experience that it deserves to be.

All dietary requirements are easily catered for, and as a couple, you will be invited to enjoy a menu tasting prior to your wedding, to ensure your options are absolutely right for you.

Accommodation

Along with a bridal suite that is the absolute epitome of luxury, eleven further bedrooms are also available within Botleys Mansion to house your nearest and dearest. For the rest of your guests, numerous hotels and bed and breakfasts are just a stone's throw away.

    I just wanted to thank you for a providing a wonderful wedding celebration for my daughter and son in law at Botley’s Mansion on Friday 6th August. From arriving at the venue to leaving everything was perfectly and seamlessly organised. Everyone was so attentive and helpful throughout the day and all the guests have commented in particular about the amazing food.

  • Janet & Kevin

    Dear Bijou Team, Kevin & I just want to say a huge thank you to all the team at Botley’s for making our day so special from the moment we arrived to when we left. We could not have asked for such a professional well-run day. Many of our guests commented on the smooth running, the delicious food, the attentive service and the pleasant staff who could not do enough for us. Special mention should go to Ann for taking calls and sorting out last minute changes, Dan for ensuring a smooth-running day and keeping us on track and to Hayley for her organisation of the evening. The day was truly magical, and all family and friends enjoyed themselves immensely. THANK YOU BOTLEY’S, AMAZING!!!We also want to commend the Bijou team for all their help and support throughout the complications of the COVID pandemic and our initial postponement through to our special day.

  • Rebecca & Matthew

    As soon as we saw Botleys Mansion, we knew this was the venue we wanted for our wedding. Starting at the bottom of the sweeping drive, working its way through the stunning surroundings, up to the double staircases at the front entrance, to the Green Room and finally to the conservatory – everything about the venue definitely has the wow factor. The grandeur of the exterior combined with the elegant, well looked after, modern interior (which retains classic touches) really makes for a truly stunning venue. The planners were great to deal with in the lead up, always there for help and advice throughout. The team on the day were exceptional! Big shout out to Dan who ensured our day ran without a hitch. All in all, the team went out of their way to ensure our day was perfect and we can’t thank them enough. Especially coupled with the beautiful food, cocktails and wine. All in all a 10/10 experience.

    We would both like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved in making our big day everything we could have hoped for. Upon our very first trip to Botleys Mansion, we were told that we would struggle to find a service and venue that matched anything offered by Bijou - you were not wrong!

  • Funmi and Peter

    Thank you very much for all your help with the arrangements for our wedding. The Bijou team are the best in the business and we would recommend you to anyone.
