Constructed between 1856-1858, Manor By The Lake presents a labyrinth of stylish, ornate and luxurious chambers, and in fact, is the only entirely exclusive wedding venue in the whole of Cheltenham and Gloucester! Couples are able to commandeer the whole manor in its entirety, allowing the wedding party to enjoy a different room for each stage of the day's celebrations.

A choice of 8 stylish areas are licensed for the conduct of civil wedding ceremonies:-

    My son and his fiancée (now his wife) have just held their wedding at this venue. I can't begin to tell you what a wonderful place this is you need to see it for yourself. From the time we got there to checking out next day we were treated like royalty. The bedrooms are superb and the food is amazing.

    Thank you to all the staff who made this a memorable day.

    My son was married at the Manor by the Lake earlier this week.

    The setting is truly beautiful, the manor and grounds kept in perfect order.

    The staff are hard working, well turned out, cheerful and very helpful. Every guest request was greeted with a smile and nothing too much trouble for them.

    The food, wine and presentation were all very good.

    A very memorable occasion in a very memorable setting.
