Exuding elegance and charm, Houchins’ listed farmhouse is a truly unforgettable location for your wedding day. Your celebrations will flow seamlessly from the ceremony to the reception, and our experienced team are on hand to ensure your day runs exactly how you always dreamed.
The Foundry is licensed to hold civil ceremonies with between 12 and 120 guests. The room can be transformed in the evening to provide the perfect reception space for up to 200 people to dance and celebrate into the night. The adjoining Chitting Shed is ideal for a relaxed drinks reception, boasting large glass doors which open out onto the beautiful terrace and gardens.
For your wedding breakfast, The Grainstore can accommodate up to 150 seated guests. The space has high ceilings and a mezzanine gallery for additional space and boasts a large fireplace for a rustic atmosphere.
Between May and September, you can opt to have a romantic outdoor ceremony in the Loggia. The grand marquee connects to the Loggia for a fantastic reception space, protected from the unpredictable British weather.
The bridal party can enjoy luxurious accommodation in the elegant farmhouse just 50 metres from the venue. The stylish house has been restored to offer a peaceful and comfortable night’s stay in a self-catering style bed and breakfast. Houchins will also provide a complimentary breakfast hamper with fresh fruit, juices, local artisan breads and cereal to the overnight guests.
