Exquisite, stunning, stylish, contemporary – Sandon Manor in Hertfordshire, is a Georgian mansion surrounded by 1,200 acres of rewilded countryside.

Recently the team have been working on opening Sandon Manor, the properties and grounds for exclusive-use boutique guest accommodation. Sandon Manor and The Dovecote have been stylishly renovated to a high spec to sleep 18 guests, and their historic barns (c1250) are being restored into a luxury, bespoke venue providing space for up to 150 guests with a ceremony hall, a courtyard for outdoor ceremonies and a Medieval Hall for banqueting, and dancing.

Today we’re taking a little peek inside and hearing from the team…

Notes from the Venue

Our Venue + Ethos

Sandon Manor is a place where couples can come together to truly enjoy their wedding day with their loved ones; relaxing into an extended stay to celebrate in style and soak up every moment of their marriage. We create a bespoke wedding for every couple; be that an intimate gathering with nearest and dearest or to feast, dance and celebrate with up to 150 special friends. There are multiple wedding ceremony options available here, choose from the East Wing for 150 guests, the courtyard summer house, an intimate union in Sandon Manor house or a unique, wild setting in the Estate’s woodlands.

Sandon Manor House and the stunning Dovecote bridal suite opened their doors in 2021. Guests are encouraged to spend quality time together during their stay, relaxing into comfort and immersing themselves in nature through our wild and decadent activities on the surrounding rewilded land (one of the largest nature reserves in Hertfordshire).
