Searching for Cotswolds wedding venues with nearby accommodation for your guests?

Planning a wedding involves organising so many things that it can be – or probably will be – a bit overwhelming at times. The key to enjoying the process, as all organised bridal couples know, is having to-do lists. Sitting at the top of your main to-do list is sure to be the choice of venue. If you have decided a Cotswold wedding venue is your heart’s desire (how sensible!), we are here to help you with our list of 18 Cotswolds wedding venues, which range from intimate stone barn settings for two to 10 guests all the way through to magnificent Sudeley Castle, catering for up to 600.

Once the venue is chosen and booked, most couples provide their guests with a guide to local accommodation, which usually includes a wide range of options, from hotels to self-catering holiday homes. That’s where we can help again with our hand-picked holiday cottages which we have married up with (excuse the pun) our choice of 18 Cotswold wedding venues.

Are you a wedding guest searching for accommodation near a Cotswolds wedding venue?

If you’re travelling to one of the 18 Cotswolds wedding venues we’ve highlighted, and you haven’t been sent a list of nearby accommodation (or the choices have already been booked), we are here to help you find that accommodation – whether that’s a one-bedroom hideaway for you and your partner or a larger property for a group of friends or family members. All our holiday properties are self-catering, with fully equipped kitchens and dining areas, plenty of hanging room for your wedding clothes, full-length mirrors – to check you’re looking great, cosy living rooms to return to in the colder months and outside spaces to enjoy al fresco post-wedding cheer during warmer evenings.
