Great Fosters is a fine example of Elizabethan architecture; set amongst stunning formal gardens, the hotel makes an ideal venue for a wedding ceremony and/or reception. This grand building became a hotel in the 1930s and has been sympathetically converted by the Sutcliffe Family. Great Fosters possesses a plethora of original details and features and is designated as a Scheduled Historic Monument and Grade One listed building. Choose from the dramatic Tithe Barn dating from 1390 with its exposed English oak beams and Minstrels' Gallery or the elegant Orangery with its tall arched windows and views over the South Terrace and gardens. Alternatively, the Tudor Room or Anne Boleyn Room offer equally stunning settings for smaller, more intimate ceremonies and celebrations.
The magnificent gardens stretch for 50 acres. Spectacular topiary and statuary sit within the knot garden with its neatly clipped box hedges and encompassed by a Saxon moat, a legacy from an architectural predecessor. A glorious fountain plays beside a wisteria clad Japanese bridge overlooking a circular sunken Rose Garden...an idyllic backdrop for your photographs.
Following the celebrations, why not stay overnight in one of our 43 luxurious suites or rooms. Special rates are available for wedding guests too. Our professional and experienced staff will be delighted to advise and assist in planning and organising an unforgettable day.
