Pontlands Park

The feel


Pontlands Park is a family-run hotel providing a unique combination of homely comfort and exceptional service and is the perfect location to hold your wedding ceremony or host your wedding reception. The striking Victorian House and the immaculately landscaped gardens provide a beautiful setting for your special day.

Pontlands Park can accommodate weddings in a variety of wonderful function rooms with something to suit every special occasion.

We are licensed for outdoor Ceremonies in our beautiful outdoor garden gazebo, which creates an idyllic setting in which to exchange your vows, surrounded by family and friends, a beautiful pond with fountain and stunning bridge, makes the perfect backdrop. Alternatively, our stunning Lilli Suite overlooks the gardens in a modern stylish setting, or you may choose the vast space of the air-conditioned conservatory suite in the main house.

The elegant Disraeli private dining room can seat from 16 to 32 guests for a more intimate experience, with our dining menu starting from £42.50 per person. We also offer an Afternoon Tea style celebration starting from £25.50 per person. Should you wish to carry your celebration into the evening, we can offer the Conservatory Suite for a ‘Party at the Park’ style party for up to 120 guests, or our beautiful Marquee for up to 250 guests.

For a more traditional sit-down occasion, the fully air-conditioned Conservatory can seat between 30 and 90 guests. From April to October, the exquisite silk-lined Marquee on the grounds can seat between 70 and 180 guests for your celebration with an internal bar facility. Our ‘Dream Wedding’ packages provide the basis for you to create your perfect celebration from just £75.00 per person, which includes a reception drink, canapes where applicable, a three-course meal, still and sparkling water, alongside wine with your meal, and fizz for the all-important toast, an evening buffet, the function room hire, and VAT.

We also offer ‘evening only’ style of celebrations with our ‘Party at the Park’ brochure with menus starting from just £23.50 per person. Further details are available in our brochure.

The hotel boasts 35 luxurious, well-appointed bedrooms for you and your guests at special discounted rates.

To assist with your wedding plans, our excellent team of professional, experienced staff will be on hand to ensure everything runs smoothly. They will work closely with you to make sure you have the perfect day to look back on for many years.
