You can enjoy exclusive use of the house and grounds, along with a choice of two charming reception rooms for entertaining your guests, superb cuisine by a renowned chef, plus access to 12 luxurious ensuite bedrooms.

Named after a 900-year-old tree still standing in the 10 acres of gardens and grounds, the property's first documentary reference dates back as far as 959AD, making this setting a real diamond in the rough and a timeless classic. Yew Lodge is granted a civil wedding ceremony licence, so what better place to say "I do" than amidst traditional grounds simply oozing elegance and class?


The country house was built around 1891, with changes frequently being made to better it over the years, including a new facility constructed especially for weddings and special events. With many wonderful photographic opportunities, both inside the original oak-panelled main house and outside in the gardens, you'll be certain to forge fond memories here that you will treasure forever.


One of the many benefits of having your wedding at Yew Lodge Country House is that you'll have exclusive use of all the facilities in the house and grounds. Your wedding will be the only event taking place on that particular day, so you and all your guests can relax and enjoy an intimate occasion, sipping a glass of celebratory champagne and - with a little bit of luck - soaking up the sun!
