Matara Centre

The feel

Matara Centre, set in the Cotswolds, on 28 acres, hosts bespoke wedding celebrations, working with couples to help you create your dream day. From rustic woodland areas to formal settings Matara truly has something for everyone.

Whether you are looking for an intimate ceremony inside the Grade II listed Regency home, a larger gathering under the cloisters in the courtyard, on the front lawn, or indoors in the Hilarium, Matara is licensed to hold civil ceremonies and unions. With the new laws you can get married anywhere at Matara – think the rustic woodlands, a ceremony among the wildflowers in the strolling gardens to name but a few.

For those wanting a more traditional ceremony, the Church of St John the Baptist, Kingscote lies at the edge of the property.

Alfresco or a full sit down dining experience, a traditional hog roast or a vegan feast, Chef Luke takes great care to delight the most discerning taste buds.

The menus offer seasonal, freshly prepared dishes and Chef loves to create a bespoke menu to fully reflect your tastes. The foundation of the food is based upon the farm to fork principles. The primary ingredient is love and care.

The Hilarium at Matara transforms into the perfect dance floor after the wedding breakfast. There are also 5 ante rooms that are included in your exclusive hire of the venue, giving you and your guest lots of space to take a breather from the revelry and catch up with each other.

For weekend-long celebrations, the venue offers accommodation for up to 30 people within the Grade II-listed Kingscote Park House, the Honeymoon Lodge, and converted haylofts.
