Yew Lodge


Information For Yew Lodge

Yew Lodge Country House is a stunning wedding venue set in 10 acres, offering exclusive use. Licensed for civil ceremonies & weddings; honeymoon suite & additional bedrooms.

Yew Lodge is a charming Country House encircled by beautiful lawns, secret gardens; and sunshine streaming through the trees, providing an idyllic setting for photographs.

We are a private, family run business and we love hosting weddings, parties and family celebrations! Whatever the occasion, our professional and friendly team will work with you every step of the way to create your Dream Day, with memories to treasure forever!

We are licenced to hold civil weddings and ceremonies or there are several churches of differing denominations all within 10-15 minutes journey time by car/taxi.

One of the great benefits of coming here is that weddings have complete exclusivity of the house and beautiful 10 acre gardens - so you and your guests will enjoy total privacy and can truly relax. Many people have complimented us on the warm "house party" atmosphere as opposed to being in a more formal, corporate setting.

There is a choice of two wedding suites – the contemporary Sycamore Suite can accommodate up to 130 day guests/150 evening guests and has high ceilings, air conditioning and sparkly floor. For smaller, more intimate weddings (up to 50 seated guests/75 evening guests) we have the traditional Oak Suite in the main house with original oak panelling and several “Arts & Craft” features. Both suites are on the ground floor with plenty of natural lighting and each has direct access onto a patio and the gardens.

After partying the night away, we have a sumptuous Honeymoon Suite plus 11 guest bedrooms. There is also plenty of additional accommodation available in local hotels & guest houses – to suit all budgets and all within 5-15 minutes by car/taxi.

We have our own chef and catering team and receive many compliments on the quality and presentation of our dishes. We have a wide range of options for you to choose from or we can create a special dish just for you. Special dietary requirements catered for.

We could say lots more but as the saying goes “a picture paints a thousand words” and so we invite you to come for a show round when you can see everything we have to offer and we can discuss your ideas.
