Manor By The Lake

The feel

Located in the heart of the Regency spa town of Cheltenham, Manor By The Lake is something of a hidden gem. Set in seven acres of magnificent grounds – including a romantic lake and hidden footpaths! – this stunning Victorian-era manor house really is something special. It’s no wonder the manor is fast becoming the most popular venue in the Cotswolds!

With plenty of indoor and outdoor spaces to host your special day, you’ll be spoilt for choice at Manor By The Lake. Inside, there’s a dramatic sweeping staircase, ornate wooden carved panels, stained glass windows, and grand marble fireplaces, whilst outside there’s a beautiful Italian Garden and Pavilion with a natural woodland backdrop. Planning a big bash? No problem – the grand Ballroom can comfortably host up to 300 guests.

There’s nothing the experienced team at Manor By The Lake doesn’t know about weddings, so whatever your style and theme, you can count on them to bring your vision to life. The talented chefs will whip up delicious dishes to suit your theme (using only the freshest local ingredients, of course), whilst your dedicated wedding coordinator will help you plan down to the last detail. And with a wealth of experience in delivering all types of weddings to suit all faiths, cultures, and religions, you’re definitely in safe hands at Manor By The Lake in the Cotswolds.
