This rural Gloucestershire hamlet and farm offers five luxurious stone character holiday cottages that can be rented exclusively.

Exclusive Wedding Venue Hire

The venue has a separate delightful stone barn that is fully licenced for civil and wedding ceremonies for up to 35 guests. The wedding barn has a kitchen/bar area for catering and a neutral décor, that can be decorated to your wedding theme and tastes. There is also the option to have your choice of marquee, stretch tent or tipi on the ample grounds of our rural hamlet site.


Your Wedding Celebration

Forest Barn Holidays is licenced for civil ceremonies for up to 33 guests* in our characterful wedding barn. The wedding ceremony can take place in the function barn but you have the option to hire a marquee, stretch tent or tipi and this can be sited within the beautiful grounds. We can recommend suppliers for you to liaise with to facilitate this at our venue.

* Licensed for wedding/civil ceremonies for up to 33 guests including the bridal couple.

Once your wedding celebration is complete, retire to a cosy and private love nest on site. Brambles is our secluded romantic bolthole, just for two!

The next morning you can join your wedding guests for breakfast and more celebrations!
