I can't recommend this venue enough
One of the most incredible wedding venues in the UK, a complete gem. We just had our magical wedding here and we have been supported throughout by their wonderful wedding planner Julie. I can't recommend this venue enough.

Magical woodland venue
One of the most beautiful venues you can find. We took a long time to find our perfect venue and I'm so glad we chose Stourton. We managed to create a "twilight" type wedding and enjoyed ourselves so much. Really you get so much value for money, you can camp, have a lovely outdoor wedding and a stunning safari tent. The deer in the background is just so magical and we even paid to go for a deer safari which everyone loved. Julie the wedding planner is just amazing, she was by our side throughout our entire journey. X
Response from the venue
Thank you so much for your wonderful review Hayley and Carl. I had the best time supporting you and it was a privilege to be part of your special wedding team. Your venue décor looked stunning and we are all in love with your hidden ceremony area staged under the oak tree. Wishing you every happiness, and hope to see you at another event at Stourton Woods soon, Julie

Just visiting and enquiring
I was setting up an assault course for a wedding, but was interested in hiring the venue for an event myself. The whole site is so beautiful, and peaceful. Julie, who showed me round was more than helpful, and obviously knew her stuff. If I was to hire somewhere for a wedding or anniversary, this would definitely be the place I’d hire.

Incredible venue
Stourton woods is the perfect venue for a relaxed but beautiful wedding. We could set up exactly what and how we wanted to and to have guests camping over made the whole experience even more special. I’d recommend anyone to go and have a look around and meet Julie.
