Hatton Court Hotel
Muddy says: Big love goes out to this lovely country house hotel in the heart of the Cotswolds, perfect for a weekend escape or the wedding of your dreams
Ooh la la for Gloucester’s most beautiful country house wedding venue!
It’s the little things that count at this traditional Cotswold country house, with a dedicated wedding co-ordinator and staff that go the extra mile. Craft your own special day with all the wonderful quirks you’ve always dreamed of – they’ll make them come true. And it’s all against the dreamy backdrop of stunning grounds, gorgeous Cotswold views, a romantic country hotel offering photos to die for, and a garden marquee that allows you to experiment, design and decorate to your heart’s content. The food is a biggie here – their chefs know their biscuits and will create bespoke menus to compliment your celebrations, all with fresh, seasonal ingredients, plus we love the Big Suppers the hotel can organise the night before the big day, complete with sharing platters to get everyone mixing. This one has ‘happy bride’ written all over it.
The latest packages for 2019, prettily named Ivy, Hazel, Holly and Lily, offer a number of options for couples, including a dedicated Wedding Coordinator, offers worth up to £1,500 with their preferred wedding partners, preferential accommodation rates and packages at the hotel for your pre-wedding celebrations, menu tasting, a red carpet welcome, the services of an informal Wedding Host on the day, and even a suite for the newlyweds and brekkie the next morning. Fancy an anniversary treat? You can even bag a night’s bed and breakfast stay for free!
Moving on from weddings, Hatton Court is a divine retreat for a romantic weekend away, with stylish bedrooms, great local food and warm, friendly service. Think four poster beds, spa baths and private balconies with stunning views over the Cotswolds.
The Tara Restaurant showcases the best local ingredients, offering such deliciousness as herb crusted cod fillet, slow braised pork belly and beer battered pollock. Yum!
