|OWLPEN has long been recognised as one of England's most romantic manor houses. In 2006 it was voted a finalist in the Country Life–Savills award for "England's Favourite Manor House". Owlpen Manor and its 215-acre estate is the perfect setting for any wedding reception, providing both romance and a perfect intimacy for a day that will never be forgotten.
We take immense pride in being singularly 'un-corporate' in our attitude, working with you to make your special day a unique event that is tailored to your own wishes.
Receptions can be held for just 20 up to 200.
The Church of the Holy Cross can be used for wedding ceremonies or by arrangement as a venue for blessings. It is an exquisitely beautiful place with wonderful mosaics and outstanding stained glass windows.
Unfortunately, the manor house and estate are presently un-licensed for civil ceremonies, although we can hold a host of alternative ceremonies.
The Cyder House Restaurant
The Cyder House restaurant with its gigantic oak cider press and cruck trusses is a unique and extremely intimate setting which can house up to 48 guests. If required a marquee can be assembled adjacent to the restaurant for up to 100, thus allowing ample space for dining, dancing and entertainment. The Cyder House is fully licenced and we offer a superb range of selected wines. We can also run a pay bar, if required.
Catering in the Cyder House
This is your day and the food that is served is an incredibly important element in making it unique and special.
Karin Mander and Mary Humphries are delighted to offer you an excellent choice of menus, whether it's a simple finger buffet, a split roast of a formal wedding breakfast. Sample menus can be provided. These are by no means the only choices that we can offer you. Many more suggestions are available. If you have any specific requests, then we will work with you to help you fulfil them.
Catering for up to 48 guests in the Cyder House can be provided by our own staff. Otherwise, we have a list of recommended caterers for larger guest numbers.
