Flanesford Priory was founded in 1346 by Sir Richard Talbot as a house for a group of priests known as the Canons Regular of St Augustine. After the building was dissolved in 1537, it was then owned by the sixth earl of Shrewsbury, George Talbot.

Prior to the Talbot family's ownership of Flanesford, the buildings were used as farm buildings until 1980. The surviving buildings are now Grade I-listed and provide self-catered accommodation and an outstanding wedding venue.

  • Megan and Mitch - 28/05/2018

    We had an absolutely perfect wedding at Flanesford Priory! Izzie and her family made us feel so welcome from the word go when planning our wedding. They made the whole process enjoyable and not stressful at all - the whole day was perfect and the accommodation was truly stunning! The food was absolutely delicious and since the wedding day all we have heard from our guests is about how good the food and service was throughout our wedding with many quoting ‘the best wedding ever!’. Thank you so much for a wonderful day.
