What I hadn't realised when booking is that this lovely hotel also had an equally lovely attached wedding venue in the form of a Cotswold stone barn.
With my work hat on as always I asked for a brochure and took a sneaky peek inside and really wanted to share with you on the blog :)
Nestling in a tranquil Cotswold landscape, Hyde Barn is a great location to host your wedding and celebrations. http://www.hydebarn.co.uk/
Licensed for civil marriage ceremonies in the elegant ceremony hall, or outdoors under the beautiful arbour, they also provide really great service and, if the meals we had in the hotel restaurant were anything to go by, fantastic catering options!
"Whilst we are there to provide as much support, input, advice and guidance as you need, we also recognise the importance of giving you the freedom to do things your way – we are not prescriptive about how you organise and style your wedding event. We welcome up to 150 guests during both the ceremony and wedding breakfast, and up to 175 guests in the evening which really does give you fantastic flexibility.
Hyde Barn combines traditional Cotswolds architecture with a with a contemporary and elegantly finished interior space. It is the ideal backdrop for expressing your own personality and ideas in the celebration of your wedding. Exceptional accommodation is available at the adjacent Fosse Manor Hotel, where there are 19 delightful, comfortable rooms, together with a spacious bar and quality restaurant facilities."
I'd definitely recommend it if you are looking for a pretty venue in the Cotswolds area ... and it doesn't hurt that the picture perfect Stow on the Wold, with its lovely tea shops, antiques shops and a couple of cracking vintage boutiques is very close by!
