With its far reaching views, beautiful gardens and elegant interiors, Broadfield is one of the most special wedding venues in Herefordshire.
Broadfield is just outside the small village of Bodenham, to the north of the city of Hereford. At the end of a long drive, Broadfield is a stunning country house, with parts dating from the 14th Century. Renovated in 2018, Broadfield combines beautiful historical features such as wood panelling, open fires and stucco ceilings, with luxurious modern comforts including huge showers, king or superking beds and lovely interiors.
They combine a beautiful country house with stunning grounds, so whether you want glamorous, intimate, festival, boho, rustic, party or traditional, Broadfield can be your backdrop.
Just twenty minutes north of Hereford with a main line train station to Birmingham and London, and ten minutes to Leominster with direct trains to Manchester and Cardiff, Broadfield is easy to get to. Motorway links are just over half an hour away, and Birmingham airport is an hour and fifteen minutes drive. Local accommodation is easy to get to for any guests not staying at Broadfield.
Broadfield is a really flexible venue. The most important day of your lives should be your day, and so they try to do as much as they can to suit you. You have exclusive use of the whole of Broadfield and can use it as you wish – choose where you want your ceremony, your drinks, your wedding breakfast, your evening do – and they will help make your day perfect.
Couples will have Broadfield exclusively for the duration of their wedding day, no matter how large or small the wedding party. The house has eight or nine wonderful bedrooms – the bridal suite has a lovely dressing room that can be converted into another kingsize bedroom if needed. Downstairs are large reception rooms, with cosy lounges, a grand dining room, a library/pool room and a large modern kitchen and breakfast room.
Outside, Broadfield delights with its huge gardens and grounds. The house is set in 22 acres, with five given over to gardens, including a hedged rose garden, a kitchen garden, magical woodland, an orchard, vines and two huge south-facing lawns. To the front of the house is the loggia and fold yard, a very cool location for an outdoor ceremony, or a ceremony underneath a canopy or tipi. Throughout the grounds are so many locations for amazing photos – the outbuildings, the woods, the views – all provide stunning backdrops.
Your Ceremony & Reception
Inside the house they specialise in really lovely, intimate ceremonies. In their upper barn, it’s a bit more rustic with beams and wooden floors. Their fold yard is a rustic space, which suits an open air wedding perfectly, or a festival vibe with a chinese hat tipi. But where Broadfield really comes into it’s own is for those couples wanting an outdoor ceremony, with so many amazing locations. Or couples can choose to marry in a tipi or marquee, decorated beautifully.
Their terracotta tiled Summer House is the perfect spot for small ceremonies of six, so ideal for couples wanting to either have just their witnesses or to do the ‘legal bit’ if they marry outdoors.
For large receptions, a tipi or marquee is ideal and is wonderful whether winter or summer. Whether with open sides and the sun streaming in, or with an indoor firepit, furs and fairy lights, they provide an amazing location.
To extend your special day, your close wedding party are able to stay at Broadfield for a night, two nights or more if you would like, and they can either provide delicious food during your stay or you are able to self cater.
With Broadfield, you will have a dedicated wedding planner from first enquiry until after you’ve tied the knot, helping you as much or as little as you need. They are open to you choosing whichever suppliers you would like, although they do have really fantastic caterers they would ask you use unless you strongly have other plans*. They have a bar at Broadfield that comes as part of your hire, and they can run that for you as a cash bar, or you can buy your guests drinks, or you can bring drinks in and pay corkage – whatever works best for you!
They can help you source and choose suppliers for your big day, or indeed for the days around it – you might want pizzas made from their clay oven and a hot tub the night before, or a big brunch the day after, or you might even want a florist to come and help your bridesmaids make their flower crowns – whatever you need to make your day special, they will do their very best to help you.
