Coco Wedding Venues is the wedding venue directory for the discerning Bride & Groom searching for that perfect location for their big W-day.

But… Once said venue has been found, then what…?

Fear not, your love affair with all things Coco doesn’t have to end as our locations are also perfect for romantic getaways (did someone say belated Valentines treat…?), pre W-day pampering with the girls or indeed a little mini-moon action after the celebrations.

Let me guide you through my hot picks… There’s cottages, lodges and tree houses. Oh my!

Foxhill Manor

Foxhill Manor is an exclusive use wedding venue, where you and your guests will be in pure luxury, you’ll even have your very own House Butler and Chef for the duration of your stay!

But… Exciting news! From 10th March, Foxhill Manor will be doing things a little bit differently. You’ll be able to book it on a room-by-room basis, without having to take over the whole place.

Like their big sister Dormy House, they’re becoming a boutique hotel – only a bit, well, boutiquier. With twin bathtubs looking out onto rolling countryside, a spa at Dormy House where you “walk in, float out” and exquisite bedrooms to choose from, this gets my vote for a romantic weekend away with your beau.

Sibton Park at Wilderness Reserve

Set deep in the Yox Valley, known as the Garden of Suffolk, in the county boasting the greatest expanse of sky and cleanest air in England, is Wilderness Reserve.

From small intimate gatherings to large and lavish affairs, Sibton Park at Wilderness Reserve is a unique Suffolk wedding venue for a luxurious and bespoke reception in the heart of the idyllic English countryside.

But it’s their ‘without electricity’ Hex Cottage that’s the jewel in the crown. Set within its own meadow and surrounded by woodland, Hex Cottage is a thatched former forester’s cottage which comes ‘without electricity’ so you can experience undisturbed peace and a real sense of bygone times. Creature comforts abound in the roar of a log fire, the fairy-tale bedroom and quirky bathroom complete with luxurious roll-top bath.

Chewton Glen Hotel & Spa

Chewton Glen is a luxury Country House Hotel & Spa set in 130 acres of Hampshire countryside on the edge of the New Forest National Park, and just a few minutes’ walk from the sea. But this classic wedding venue has a few surprises such as their luxuriously contemporary treehouses…

Yes, treehouses.

Built high among the trees of a secluded valley, each Treehouse is an unforgettable setting for unwinding, for relaxing and for pampering. So why not plan your hen party here, with hot tubs bubbling, champagne flowing and spa treatments galore it’s the ultimate girly weekend away.

The Titanic Hotel

Fancy something in the City…? The leave the countryside behind and head into the cosmopolitan that is Liverpool. Stylish, sophisticated and unique, weddings at the Titanic Hotel and Rum Warehouse are anything but ordinary. However, for a weekend getaway it’s all about the bedrooms and the boudoirs at The Titanic Hotel have oodles of luxurious space.

The furnishings are rich and earthy. The bed linen, is nothing short of wondrous. Each bedroom has the original windows of this incredible building giving vast views over the historic Port of Liverpool. The bathrooms have separate bath and shower. An earthy soothing colour scheme prevails and that lovely mix of solid tradition and cool modern has been perfectly created. Hide yourself away or keep in touch with 100mb broadband.

If that wasn’t enough, there us a unique spa on site with gorgeous spa products, luxurious surroundings and for the more energetic an exclusive and state of the art fitness suite. The perfect city break yes…?

Natural Retreats

If you are looking for a wedding venue, you might want somewhere you can return to for years to come – from romantic getaways to celebrate anniversaries to child-friendly holiday’s as your family grows! Natural Retreats, I think, would be the perfect choice…

At first glimpse of Natural Retreats Yorkshire Dales you’ll fall in love with the beautiful, uninterrupted views of the Swale Valley and rolling green hills as far as the eye can see. Set within 55 acres of some of England’s finest countryside, it’s a secluded and idyllic location for your big day.

As well as being quite the location for your wedding, Natural Retreats also boasts some serious luxurious accommodation in the form of their eco lodges. With iconic design, floor-to-ceiling windows, open plan lounges with dining and kitchen area, wood burning stoves and über stylish interiors – this is a lustworthy adventure for all.

You might want to subtly leave this post open on your other half’s tablet… Or maybe forward on to your girls for some hen party ideas…?

Either way, do go and check out these gems and get a date in the diary for romance and champagne!

Lots of love…
