Surrounded by 7 acres of picturesque, award-winning gardens, Manor By The Lake is an exquisite Victorian Gothic mansion offering a stunning backdrop for exclusive weddings in the popular and stylish spa town of Cheltenham. A magical blend of traditional elegance set alongside modern facilities, Manor By The Lake offers 8 beautiful areas licensed to host civil wedding ceremonies with 10-300 guests!

Weddings can be held indoors amidst the mansion's elegant stained-glass windows, ornate ceilings and intricately-carved oak panels.

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:-

The Lyderick Room - Licensed for the conduct of civil wedding ceremonies with up to 80 guests, this grand, majestic room features magical stained-glass windows and a superb marble fireplace.

Rock Bar - This unique and charming space can accommodate up to 80 guests for a wedding ceremony.

The West Wing Ballroom - This delightfully light and spacious room features pretty French doors that open out onto the grounds, and can act as a blank canvas for you to decorate as you wish. It is a perfect location for civil ceremonies with 300 guests, or formal wedding breakfasts for 200.

The Arches - Should you wish to stage your ceremony outside, The Arches offers a truly romantic and scenic location.

The Italian Gazebo - Situated within the manor's listed Italianate walled gardens, the Gazebo is a perfect location for intimate ceremonies surrounded by stunning flowers.

    I cannot praise the Manor enough for everything you did not only on the day but for the build up also. We had a fantastic day as did all of our guests, and the food was amazing. Our guests said that it was the best wedding food they’d ever had! I will certainly be recommending the Manor to anyone looking for a venue as the day was faultless!

    We wanted to say a huge thank you for our incredible wedding day! We thought it was literally perfect in every way and loved every single minute of our day. The whole team worked so hard for us and were absolutely fantastic the moment we arrived. The planning team were super helpful and dealt with any worries or concerns that we had so thank you so much. We also give our huge thanks to the Head Chef, we can’t explain how incredible the food tasted, it was spot on and there wasn’t a single guest who wasn’t happy!

    We cannot thank all the team at the Manor enough for giving us the most perfect of days. It was truly everything we hoped for and more! All of our guests have said how amazing the venue and staff were, and we completely agree. We can honestly say we wouldn’t have changed a single thing, it was just perfect!

  • Eleanor and Johnathan

    We cannot thank you all enough as we know that our day would not have been anywhere near as perfect without all of the help from the team at Manor By the Lake. From start to finish the team was so professional and so personable that it kept us so relaxed as we knew everything was under control. From the very first time we visited the Manor, we knew that we were in great hands which made our decision to get married at this special venue a very easy one. The food was absolutely excellent and we have received such amazing comments from all of our guests who enjoyed this magical venue just as much as we did! Thank you again!

  • PJ Carter

    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.

  • Ellie B

    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.

  • Nicola H
