The Setting

Nestled in the hamlet of Thorpe Mandeville in the Oxfordshire countryside, sits Thorpe Manor. Surrounded by the natural beauty of its 200-acre estate, the house has just been restored and transformed.

Secluded and charming, warm and welcoming, this grand yet informal country house offers the ideal setting for weddings. Conveniently located just opposite the village church, Thorpe Manor can also hold ceremonies both inside the house and in the original summerhouse.

Located 10 minutes off the M40. Regular trains take 55 minutes from London Marylebone to Banbury, and a taxi from Banbury to Thorpe Manor is 10 minutes. By road, the house is within 30 minutes of The Cotswolds, 45 minutes of Birmingham, 60 minutes from Heathrow.

The Vibe

Step inside the original entrance hall ornamented with scagliola pillars, across the centuries-old limestone floors and into large open rooms with beautiful fireplaces and oak-panelled walls.

Ascend the sweeping staircase to find 14 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms in which to relax and unwind, from cosy Attic rooms under the eaves to generously spacious masters – complete with free-standing double soaking baths and rainforest showers. Collapse into the magnificent beds and wake to the tranquil views of your rural surroundings. Each bedroom is equipped with modern comforts, such as Nespresso machines.

Enjoy the entire house as if your own with its drawing room, dining room, grand kitchen, bar, games room, flower room, cinema room, and gym. The extensive grounds and four-tier garden include a magical courtyard, two summerhouses, croquet lawn, orchard, outdoor dining and relaxing areas, and Swedish hot tub.

And then, there are the extras… the Butlers to show guests to their rooms and unpack bags, the cocktail menu, the plentiful breakfasts and exceptional food. And whether it be for a fitness instructor or masseuse, no request is too great whilst you settle in and enjoy Thorpe Manor as your home away from home.

For weddings and other such events, leading trusted suppliers for marquees, tents, floristry and photography have been carefully selected.
