The Setting

The recently launched Houchins Wedding Venue is just 1 mile east of Coggeshall, with direct access from the A120. It is approximately 15 minutes from Colchester and Braintree, 35 minutes from Stansted Airport and 1hr 20 minutes from Central London.

The Vibe

Houchins comprises a stunning farmhouse for guests to stay and a modern, airy and sympathetically restored barn space for civil ceremony, reception, dinner and dancing.

This exclusive private use wedding venue can host Civil Ceremonies, both indoor and outside, for up to 110 guests. There is a rather stylish marquee set within the manicured gardens and reception parties can accommodate 150 guests.

The farmhouse accommodation, which overlooks the barn, is Grade II listed and can sleep up to 16 (including The Lodge) of your closest friends & family. All the rooms have been most elegantly refurbished and have a wonderful stylish appeal with natural fabrics and wonderful light. Previous guests of the historic, listed farmhouse are reputed to include Oliver Cromwell and silent film siren, Tallulah Bankhead!

Houchins is delighted to announce the opening of the NEW Honeymoon Lodge in the summer of 2017. Standing adjacent to the house it offers complete privacy and added luxury for our couples.

The Honeymoon Lodge is south facing with a light and airy bedroom suite boasting a roll top bath, king size bed and walk-in shower. Beautifully appointed the Lodge provides the perfect setting to unwind after your wedding celebrations.

There are so many photographic opportunities at this Essex wedding venue, just take a peek at the gallery to see!
