Full Description
Glenfall House based in the Cotswolds, just outside Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, is a stunning venue which is dedicated to weddings and events. Dating back to the 17th Century and with over 4 acres of glorious historic gardens and grounds, this breath taking private manor house has been extensively renovated to cater for luxury weddings. Glenfall House is exclusively yours and whether you’re planning a lavish summer wedding, or an intimate winter ceremony we pride ourselves in offering something special and unique for everyone. On arrival, we can arrange a beautician to come to your room and the bridal party will have the chance to indulge with pampering and beauty treatments whilst getting ready with your closest friends and family before your entrance to the Manor. Guests will be greeted inside the grand drawing rooms or outside on the terrace overlooking the gardens, before taking their seats either in the Glen or outside by the Alcove ready for the “I do’s”. There are a number of reception rooms for you and your guests and this coupled with the glorious gardens and terrace, provides all-weather options for a stunning drinks reception. Food is an important element to every wedding and we invite you to dine in our natural light-filled ballroom overlooking the gardens before you dance the night away. As your magical day draws to a close, you and your guests can spend the night in our 20 luxury bedrooms which all have new en suites facilities. Rest your head in one of our bridal suites before joining your closest friends and family for breakfast in the morning. It is our philosophy to work alongside you, to understand all your likes and dislikes, hear of your plans and ideas, so that we can help you create a very special wedding day, that you and your guests will remember and talk about for years to come.

Nothing was too much trouble
We couldn't recommend the team at Glenfall House enough! After deviating from our current plans due to COVID, we looked at the possibility of hosting a micro wedding with our nearest and dearest. We visited GFH and were blown away by the gorgeous house set in the picturesque countryside and the friendly and supportive staff. Having the entire venue, with it's stylish lounge, elegant ballroom and luxurious accommodation - meanwhile all decorated for Christmas - really helped create some magical memories. Our wedding coordinator, Kat, was in regular contact, offered excellent advice and gave us lots of inspiration for how to make our day special. The boozy hot chocolate bar and sparklers definitely went down a treat! Throughout the day, the whole team were on hand to make the day run smoothly and helped create the relaxed and intimate atmosphere we both wanted. Nothing was too much trouble and every guest noted how dedicated and kind you were. We chose to go with GFH’s recommended caterers and were not disappointed! The canapés, 3 course wedding breakfast and cheese and port course were simply exceptional. Thank you all for making us feel so welcome and making our day so perfect. Love Jo and Jon x Great hotel bar · Romantic atmosphere · Spacious rooms · Family-friendly · Thoughtful amenities · Large suites · Historic building · Quiet rooms

Glenfall have been nothing short of exceptional
The team at Glenfall have been nothing short of exceptional. The friendly and welcoming team really made us feel like part of the family. Despite restrictions due to covid, Glenfall ensured that my wife and I had the most perfect day. They had thought of everything and were so flexible to try and include everything we wanted. Glenfall is a gorgeous venue and we are so grateful for everything they did for us. We can not thank them enough!!

Went above and beyond!
Words cannot express how wonderful the Glenfall House team are, they really put their hearts and souls into creating the perfect wedding. We had the pleasure of celebrating our wedding at Glenfall only a few days ago and could not have imagined a more perfect day. Dianne and the team made the run up to the wedding as stress free as possible, keeping us updated and reassured throughout this difficult time with Covid restrictions. We feel so lucky that we chose Glenfall to host our wedding, every member of the team went above and beyond. Thank you to all of you for making our day so special, we enjoyed every moment and you have given us wonderful memories to last a lifetime. Hannah and James xxx

The day was absolutely fantastic!
Glenfall House is the perfect venue for a wedding, such a hidden location with the most beautiful views of Cheltenham. We feel so lucky and blessed to have stumbled upon this venue and chose to have our wedding day here. Despite COVID-19, the day was absolutely fantastic and we had an incredible time from start to finish! Anna our coordinator was just amazing and kept both myself and my husband calm throughout the whole day, she ensured everything ran smoothly for us all whilst keeping the biggest smile on her face!! In the run up to our wedding Glenfall house were fabulous keeping us updated with any new rules that came into play regarding Covid and were so good at keeping us relaxed and confident! I cannot recommend Glenfall House enough for any type of event, the gardens just take your breath away and everything about the venue just makes you feel at home. A massive thank you to Anna and the rest of the team at Glenfall House for making our day the best it could be, cannot wait to come back! X

Do things your way at this venue
I would absolutely without hesitation recommend Glenfall House as a wedding or special event venue. The house, gardens and grounds speak for themselves, and the peace and quiet and incredible views completely “sold” the venue to us for our wedding. But what we didn’t yet realise was what a brilliant team we were signing up to work with. Flexible, unfailingly positive, and happy to accommodate your ideas as much as possible, you really can do things your way at this venue. We are so grateful to Kat, our wonderful wedding coordinator, as well as Dianne and her team, not only for guiding us through what it would mean to have a wedding “in the time of covid” but in their generosity in discussing options for a further event next year (if restrictions allow), and for their excellent communication and support at every stage, not to mention the whole team’s remarkable presence on the day. All the staff, including the waiters/servers, were helpful, friendly and Carl the professional yet effervescent bar manager made sure no one’s glass was left unfilled. Thank you so very much to Dianne, Kat, and the incredible team at Glenfall. We feel so lucky to have had our wedding with you!

Glenfall House is a hidden gem!
Glenfall House is a hidden gem! You feel like you’re miles from anywhere with its stunning views, yet you have all the conveniences of being 5 minutes from town (taxi pick ups etc!) I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the team & Glenfall House for any event. We just had our wedding there and not only have we felt in safe hands regarding their knowledge of the covid related rules but their team (plus all their recommended suppliers) are phenomenal too. Please do consider giving this local business your support, you won’t be let down! We had one of the best days of our lives there. Thank you GFH xxx
