A Grade II-listed Victorian manor house set within 35 acres of sprawling woodland and manicured land. Brimming with decadence, this manor house is full of original wood panelling, sparkling chandeliers and a grand sweeping staircase.

This all-inclusive wedding venue is licensed for civil ceremonies, can cater for up to 200 people for a sit down wedding breakfast and host the party of all evening parties to celebrate your nuptials! With 84 bedrooms, a luxurious spa and dedicated wedding team, it is no surprise that Pendley Manor is regarded as one of the best venues in Hertfordshire.


Pendley Manor has a very rich history, having been home to some famous names and politicians over the past 1,000 years.

Well regarded within Hertfordshire, Pendley Manor began its rise to stardom when it was taken over by William the Conqueror in 1066 which was documented in the Domesday Book. Pendley Manor was then lived in by the first ever member of Parliament, Jon de Angel before being inhabited by various titled families. In 1835 the Manor was burnt down before being rebuilt in 1872. Further renovation works occurred in 1989 to restore the building to its original glory that you see today.
