Situated in the serene and picturesque Cotswold village of Ewen, Water’s Edge is embraced by the tranquillity of its rural surroundings. Located a mere 4 miles from Cirencester town and just a short 3-minute car ride to Kemble station, which provides excellent connectivity to London, this idyllic venue offers the perfect blend of convenience and natural beauty.
Water’s Edge unfolds across two storeys, showcasing a charming L-shaped barn design. The main party space awaits on the ground floor, featuring a delightful dining room with an inviting open fireplace. Adjacent to it, a spacious bar and lounge area set the stage for mingling and to add to the magic, guests can witness the culinary artistry of the in-house chef team in the open theatre-style kitchen. As guests venture outdoors, they are greeted by a stylish stretch tent adorned with twinkly fairy lights and, following a short walk, by the enchanting sight of spring-fed lakes, providing an exquisite backdrop for the leisurely sipping of cocktails.
The festivities commence in the barn’s bar area, where a meticulously crafted panelled bar serves as the room’s focal point. Revellers can enjoy a selection of locally sourced Cotswold ales, traditional champagne, and signature cocktails tailored to satisfy every taste.
A panelled dining room accommodates up to 110 seated guests, while the option to add a marquee alongside enables the inclusion of additional guests for a delightful sit-down meal. As twilight descends, the dining room transforms into an inviting dancefloor, ensuring that celebrations continue in style.
At Water’s Edge, the accomplished in-house chef team expertly prepares all culinary delights in the theatre kitchen. The menus are thoughtfully designed around the couple’s preferences, using locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. From sumptuous sharing platters and delectable grilled feasts to indulgent feasting menus, the options are tailored to create a culinary experience that reflects the couple’s unique style. After nightfall, a delightful ‘Munchies’ menu awaits, featuring luxurious cheese toasties, stone-baked pizzas, and locally sourced gourmet hot dogs.
Upstairs, the venue offers three beautifully appointed bedrooms, including an exquisite couple’s suite. Complete with a charming roll-top bath, a separate dressing room, a contemporary en-suite, and a lavish super-kingsize luxury padded bed, the couple’s suite provides an inviting sanctuary for the newlyweds. Additionally, two more bedrooms comfortably accommodate up to four extra guests, with a shared bathroom adorned with a bath and shower nestled between the rooms.
As guests venture outdoors, they can follow the meandering garden path that leads them through Water’s Edge’s enchanting rolling grounds. Amongst graceful willow trees and manicured lawns, a charming private lake and an outdoor ceremony structure await, providing an idyllic setting for couples to exchange their vows and declare their eternal love.
Yes, you can; we hope to be as flexible as possible. However, having over ten years of experience in weddings, we are delighted to give local recommendations for florists and suppliers.
We have options. We have a beautiful stretch tent that can be erected for the ceremony by the lakes, but if the weather is really awful, we can open up our gorgeous green-panelled ceremony room for the service in Water's Edge.
Our wedding coordinators are brilliant; they will work with you every step of the way to create your dreams. From tastings to management on the day.
You have exclusive use of the venue for two days and lakes for the ceremony.
