History is calling


Bartley Lodge, originally built as a New Forest hunting lodge, was once the home of the famous geologist Charles Lyel, and is our most historic wedding venue, with plenty of stunning scenery and beautiful sights perfect for those wedding snaps. We think Charles would approve!

You’ll be surrounded by eight-acres of historic oak trees and lovely green lawns before you head to our Wedgwood Crystal Room to get hitched. It makes for a stunning woodland wedding. In the evening, when the party begins, the large space will open up to up to 150 guests and you can take advantage of your own private bar.

In our Baronial Hall, we will serve you and up to 80 of your guests a delightful wedding breakfast to enjoy under the glistening chandeliers in the grand hall.
