Nestled on the Cheshire-Shropshire border, this landmark of medieval architecture is the perfect venue for your special day.

Wander the splendid fruit tree maze and marvel at the natural splendour of Combermere Abbey's 1000 acres of gardens, woodlands and parklands.


Combermere Abbey originally opened its doors as a Cistercian monastery in 1133 but was later gifted to Sir George Cotton by Henry VIII in 1536.

Between 1814 and 1820, the grand house was refashioned in the popular Gothic style by the 1st Viscount Combermere.

Over the last 20 years, all the listed buildings on-site have been restored to their former Victorian glory. Now the abbey can be hired exclusively for couples who want to enjoy a personalised, bespoke wedding experience.

    Myself and my husband cannot recommend Combermere Abbey highly enough.

    From looking at what felt like every wedding venue in the north of England we both fell in love at first sight with Combermere and we're both so glad we chose this venue for our wedding last weekend.

    From start to finish the service was second to none with no request to much hassle for our amazing wedding coordinator Diane and her colleague Ashleigh.

    The wedding day went without a hitch and everything was perfect. We've had so many comments about the venue from our guests and all of the staff at Combermere made sure that everyone had an amazing day.

  • Callie Georgina

    The staff and facilities are second to none and the cottages just as wonderful. The atmosphere was so relaxed and fun and the staff just made sure everything we wanted or needed was catered for and ensured the late arrivals were okay. The food was delicious and catered for all diets!

    My husband and I got married at Comberemere Abbey in September 2017. As soon as we visited Comberemere Abbey we fell in love with it and no other wedding venue could compete! Leading up to the wedding the staff were extremely helpful and were on hand to give us advice and answer any questions and helped us to organise our day.

    We hired the cottages for the 2 nights, which all of our family and friends loved and were extremely impressed by them! It was perfect to have all our close family and friends all together before the wedding and we were well looked after by the staff who checked us in and made sure we had everything we needed.
