Truly care about there couples day being perfect
An idyllic countryside wedding venue As a wedding celebrant who loves conducting rustic weddings, I was excited to find Honey Meadow Retreat. When I first went to look around, I honestly fell in love immediately. I loved all the different aspects to it, the courtyard looked stunning with the brightest array of flowers and the tallest sunflowers I think I’ve ever seen. The cottages have everything you could possibly need and all the mod cons but still have that beautiful rustic charm.

Best day ever!!
We had the best day in the most beautiful country retreat. Everything was perfect! Harriet was lovely, always there to help. The food she cooked was unreal - canapés, a feast of the tastiest tagines & salads. We opted for glamping accommodation - the outdoor bath under the stars was the deciding factor! It was heavenly. Luckily we had a clear night so the stars were unreal. Thank you so much for having us!! We shall be back to stay!!

An idyllic countryside wedding venue
As a wedding celebrant who loves conducting rustic weddings, I was excited to find Honey Meadow Retreat. When I first went to look around, I honestly fell in love immediately. I loved all the different aspects to it, the courtyard looked stunning with the brightest array of flowers and the tallest sunflowers I think I’ve ever seen. The cottages have everything you could possibly need and all the mod cons but still have that beautiful rustic charm. I loved going through the gates to see the glamping field. I still can’t pick my favourite. I’m torn between the safari tent and the shepherds hut. I thought the pizza oven was a brilliant touch and could imagine family and friends sitting around chatting, cooking pizzas, having the best time. We kept exploring, honestly it’s like narnia, you just keep finding something even more fun and exciting. The outdoor ceremony area is gorgeous with countryside views that seem to go on forever. It really is a fantastic venue that is run by equally fantastic owners. They truly care about their couples day being perfect. I had the most amazing time conducting ceremonies there last year and I’m beyond excited to be back there many times this year.
