We have entered The UK Wedding Awards for Best Country House Wedding Venue. What do you think? Are we in for a chance of winning?
We think we are in with a chance to win! Our venue is the quitessential English country house wedding venue, fulfilling all the requirements that a country house shoud do! From historic interiors designed specifically for entertaining, far reaching views, rose gardens and lavendar paths, old family portraits and the feeling of a by-gone age, the house is a timeless space where time stands still and the peaceful countryside surrounds you. The noise of the city is far away and this dreamy venue is the dream wedding venue!
Poundon House is an Edwardian country house, built in 1908, set within beautifully landscaped grounds, and has been lovingly restored to its original splendour.
As Coco Wedding Venues says ‘This Oxfordshire gem features nine bedrooms, three large reception rooms, a handsome library and an intimate wood-paneled study. Poundon House is privately owned and the family have held three weddings of their own at the house, so they really know what’s involved in planning your wedding and offer such flexibility, always trying to accommodate all your wishes, making each wedding very different.
The house still retains much of its Edwardian character, with the reception rooms and bedrooms restored to their Edwardian style. The nine bedrooms are spacious, ideal for preceding preparations, and there are shared bathrooms. Decorated with a classic style, the reception rooms are grand but not at all intimidating, all interlinked and south facing.
With its south facing lawns and extensive grounds, there are many photo opportunities in the gardens – from the lavender paths to the orchards, to the fields for the more rustic look, to the formal reception rooms and the lime tree avenue; there are many places to which you can escape to for that precious time together on your wedding day.
Staying over at Poundon House, enjoying the precious time with your close friends and family, in a stunning but intimate setting, really makes the most memorable wedding for you and your guests. Such a homely feel right…? I could squish up on those sofas, read a book in that bedroom alcove and luxuriate in those incredibly ornate bathrooms! I love how this venue feels like another time, another world.’
There are 9 bedrooms for stay over, making your wedding a wedding weekend, so you can really relax and enjoy this special time with family. With access the day before too, and lots of wedding planning site visits, engagement photoshoot, you will really make Poundon House your country house home from home for your wedding weekend.
