Ashton Lodge Country House 5 star review

Ashton Lodge

I find myself performing more and more in Warwickshire and one venue always stands out from the others as particularly special, Ashton Lodge Country House. I have been performing here off and on for the last 8 years or so, thought I’d write a review about, what I feel is one of Warwickshire’s premier wedding venues.

Built in the Edwardian era, Ashton Lodge is an exclusive wedding venue, which, unlike others, means you won’t be bumping into another bride and groom on your special day. For me this is always an important consideration! The beautifully kept 3 acres of private grounds also give you that extra privacy too, to ensure you can enjoy your special day with your friends, family and loved one.

I am often hired to perform over the wedding breakfast where Ashton Lodge can comfortably seat 150 people and sometimes for evening entertainment where the lodge can hold 200 guest in a more informal setting.

One of the many benefits of booking a wedding at Ashton Lodge is their accommodation. Unlike many other wedding venues which only cater for a couple of guests, this beautiful, exclusive venue can offer 15 rooms for your guests, many of them having king size beds. This means that your guests can stay for breakfast after the wedding day itself and check in the night before, ensuring real peace of mind to allow you to really let your hair down on the special occasion.

Local, acclaimed wedding caterers ‘The Chopping Block’ provide the food. This is high quality catering at its best. A number of the team have trained in Michelin starred restaurants and this decorated catering company aim to promote the best of British for your wedding.

To make things even easier and stress-free, Ashton Lodge holds a civil ceremony licence meaning that your can get married on the grounds, both inside or outside.

Talking of licences, weddings often have a rich vein of alcohol flowing through them. As such, Ashton lodge is a fully licensed wedding and events premises meaning they can sell you as much beer, wine and spirits you desire. You can either opt for an open bar with a tab throughout the night or guests buy their own drinks. Whatever you decide the Ashton Lodge team are both flexible and accommodating.

In summary, you have an in-house caterer, honeymoon suite, beautiful 3 acre grounds, an exclusive venue at your disposal, a civil ceremony licence, a fully licenced bar and plenty of accommodation. This is all wrapped up in a stunning Edwardian building and hosted by Karen and Sarah, your highly experienced wedding co-ordinators to ensure you have a day to remember!
