Stunning and Luxurious Accommodation

Guest accommodation

Included in your venue hire are all 7 bedrooms of Abbots Court. Our playful room Oxford has an adjoining room with 2 single beds - the ideal family suite. Our larger rooms, Tamworth and Berkshire also have enough room for additional beds which we can provide if needed.

The night before and the night after

Why not take the whole house for a couple of days and really stretch out the celebrations. We offer dinner, bed and breakfast for 14 guests for just £1,500. We can quote for dinning the night before the wedding. We would recommend taking the house the night before and enjoying a relaxing morning on the day of the wedding with a laid back breakfast and time to prepare before you say "I do". Some couples choose to stay the night after as well to extend the celebrations.
