Woodchester Mansion can be hired for both private and corporate functions.

Meetings and conferences

The Drawing Room seats up to 60 people for meetings and conferences. The Mansion can also provide an interesting and flexible location for team-building type days for companies.


We are licensed for civil marriages and civil partnerships and can cater for up to 180 guests, and provide a unique venue for your special day. We offer a very limited number of dates on Fridays and Saturdays during the summer season, so be sure to reserve early. For more info see our webpage on weddings.
