With its far reaching views, beautiful gardens and elegant interiors, Broadfield is one of the most special wedding venues in Herefordshire. Broadfield is an exclusive use venue which can be hired for two nights or more to host your celebrations.
Couples looking for an idyllic place to marry have several options.
For larger, outdoor ceremonies, couples can marry in our beautiful fold yard, magical woodland, on the sun-filled lawns or even in our apple orchard. Weddings can be entirely open air, or in many areas couples can choose to have a canopy, decorated beautifully with fairy lights. Ceremonies outside can be for numbers up to around 170, with the ability to move guests into their marquee or tipi in event of bad weather.
For smaller ceremonies, anywhere in our stunning grounds is perfect, including our rose garden or even amongst the wild flowers. Or for indoor ceremonies, Broadfield has two beautiful rooms within the house. Our drawing room can hold up to 60 guests and has a full length bay window with views out onto the David Austin rose garden; our inner hall can host up to 50 guests and is framed by a huge, elegant stone fireplace – both will make incredible back drops for your big day.

Alternatively, you may wish to marry elsewhere and hold your reception at Broadfield. Whatever you choose to do, Broadfield is completely yours and each wedding is completely different. We will work with you to create a day that is totally bespoke to you as a couple.
Your drinks reception and wedding breakfast
A favourite spot for the drinks reception is often Broadfield’s large south facing terrace, which leads down into the rose garden and the grounds beyond. Or, if the weather is not so kind, the house’s inner and outer halls work wonderfully – and should the weather call for it, the open log fires can be lit to lend to the grand but cosy atmosphere.
Broadfield has a range of options for your wedding breakfast and evening reception too. For larger wedding breakfasts and evening receptions a tipi or marquee on Broadfield’s lawns or in our fold yard is wonderful. Whether summer or winter, a tipi or marquee lets you enjoy the incredible views and country wedding style, while being inside a beautiful space decorated exactly as you’d like. In spring and summer you can take the sides up letting the sun stream in, while in winter fairy lights make it magical (while heaters and indoor firepits keep you warm!).
For weddings of up to around 75 people, the low beamed upper barn is a great space to dine, whether on long, informal trestles or on lovely round tables with crisp linen. For smaller weddings of around 50, Broadfield’s dining room can be used for your wedding breakfast, enabling you to enjoy all that a country house wedding has to offer. In summer, throw the huge bay windows open and, in winter, enjoy the cosy log fire.
Your evening reception and outside
Our spacious Broadfield bar is included in your hire of the venue, or we are able to serve drinks from a bar inside your tipi or marquee if you’d prefer. The bar is also the perfect spot for your evening reception for smaller weddings. For larger weddings (over 50 guests), a tipi or marquee is the place to dance the night away.
Your guests will of course be able to use Broadfield’s gardens as they wish, taking a stroll through our quintessential kitchen garden, playing croquet on the charming lawns or stopping for pictures in the beautiful rose garden. And the outside celebrations don’t stop as the sun goes down – guests can sit by the firepits, toast marshmallows and enjoy the tail end of the most magical day.
For your wedding breakfast, our carefully selected local Herefordshire caterers will create delicious food for your big day, whether it be a formal three course menu, a bespoke sharing experience, a relaxed barbeque or anything in between. But of course, we want you to have the food that suits your day, so if you would like to use your own choice of caterers, please just let us know.
As mentioned above, the bar at Broadfield will also be available to your guests on your big day, stocking a considered selection of wines, beers, ciders and spirits, many of which are local to Broadfield.
Broadfield is available to hire for two nights or more. The house has eight delightful bedrooms for the close wedding party to stay in comfortable and elegant surroundings. One of these bedrooms is a stunning bridal suite, complete with wood paneled master bedroom, elegant modern bathroom, and a dressing room, perfect for the bride and her hens to get ready in. If you would like, this dressing room can be converted into a ninth bedroom. We can provide delicious, locally sourced food to your house guests for the duration of your stay, or you can self cater, but either way your guests will have all the home comforts you would expect.
We are able to add in up to four extra put up beds, with maximum numbers of 22 house guests. We also have cots available in addition to this.
Couples or their guests can also hire the Broadfield Coach House to sleep another six or seven people.
Kirsty and Cerith, July 2022
“We are so so happy to have had our gorgeous summer wedding day at Broadfield. The house we stayed in for the wedding was stunning – amazing features, luxurious and very clean. The Broadfield grounds we used for our wedding day were incredible, we got married in the woodland and danced outside at night overlooking the beautiful views – it was just a dream! The photo opportunities are also amazing there including the sun setting over the driveway.
“The Broadfield team itself are so approachable, efficient and lovely. They make it very personal – it felt so different to so many of the ‘wedding factory’ type venues we looked around before. We felt in safe hands both leading up to our wedding and on the big day itself. Special shout out to Helen for her incredible detail and kindness! Thank you all so so much.
“If we had to do it again, we would choose Broadfield in a heartbeat. We hope to come back one day and stay for the weekend with our family.”
Sophie and Matt, June 2022
“We couldn’t have picked a better venue for our wedding. The grounds are stunning, surrounded by picturesque countryside. The house is beautiful, with so much care and attention paid to every room. We really loved being able to stay at Broadfield with our friends and family before and after the wedding.
“What made Broadfield truly great was the work that the venue’s Director Frances did both before and on the big day to ensure it was a success. Working with Frances in the run up was so easy, she was so great at helping us find suppliers and think through the day. Her help really allowed us to put our own stamp on the occasion. We had planned to have much of the day outside, but unfortunately the weather turned wet at the very last moment. Frances went above to work out how we could adapt our plans for the wet weather.
“Couldn’t recommend Broadfield highly enough.”
Fiona and William, May 2022
“What an incredibly special venue Broadfield is. We got married in Bishops Frome church and held our reception for 170 people at Broadfield. Bubbles in the rose garden followed by the wedding breakfast in Tipis (Java Tipis) on the lawn. People were exploring, playing croquet and cricket, it was all so amazing. All to the backdrop of beautiful Herefordshire countryside.
“Fran and Alex were insanely helpful from start to finish, liaising with suppliers, setting everything up and ensuring the whole day ran smoothly. Most of the suppliers (Tipis – Java Tipis & Caterers – A 2 Zest) came recommended by Broadfield and couldn’t have been better. We cannot thank them enough for all that they did.
“We had the house from Friday to Sunday and both of our families were able to stay in the gorgeous rooms for the whole weekend which was perfect.”
Katy and Jake, June 2022
“We had the most wonderful wedding weekend at Broadfield. We stayed here from Friday to Sunday with our bridal party, which worked so perfectly for allowing us to have time to set things up, and spend quality time with loved ones.
“The house feels so homely, with each room having its unique character. So much thought has been put into every room and every little detail, which really pays off. We felt very settled there right from the start. The setting and grounds are simply beautiful, typical peaceful Herefordian countryside.
“Helen and the rest of the team were very attentive on the day – nothing seemed like too much to ask, which really helped it to run smoothly. We will be highly recommending Broadfield (persuading all of our friends to have their weddings here!) to everyone we know! Thank you Helen, John, Alex, Frances and everyone else involved in making Broadfield so special.”
Polly and Marc, July 2022
“We had our wedding at Broadfield in July 2022 and it was simply the loveliest weekend. It’s owners (particularly Frances) could not have been more helpful – she made the whole wedding planning experience totally easy and stress free & we felt very reassured on the day knowing she was there to ensure everything went smoothly. She is just fab!
“The venue itself is so so beautiful. We wanted something special but not too austere/fussy and that’s exactly what Broadfield is – you’re made to feel completely at home there. So many of our guests commented on how lovely they found the venue. We honestly couldn’t have chosen a better venue & I would highly recommend it. We can’t wait to return for house stays for anniversary. Thank you so much Broadfield!”
Ella and Phil, July 2022
“Fantastic wedding venue! We had our wedding here in July, Fran and her husband Alex are incredibly attentive and Fran was particularly helpful guiding us through all the logistics of organising a wedding.
“Fran was super quick to reply to any queries or changes we wished to make which made the process all the less stressful. This in itself was worth it’s weight in gold, especially considering you can be waiting several days for some suppliers to get back to you.
“The venue is lovely with amazing gardens, woodland area and the house has real character. It’s the perfect balance between a homely feel but also high quality and a place you feel sad to leave.
“We loved the venue and experience Fran and Alex provided so much that we plan to return for a long weekend in the near future. Would highly recommend.”
Tabitha and Udy, October 2022
“We recently had our wedding at Broadfield and we are so so glad we picked this venue! Frances and her team are exceptionally organised, super friendly and helpful and were an invaluable support to making the whole weekend a success. I cannot rate them highly enough!
“The venue and its surroundings are beautiful, and all the natural greenery, flowers and trees complemented the autumnal theme of our wedding. We particularly loved the flexibility to bring in our own caterers, marquee, etc and to utilise the different spaces – e.g we held a more intimate ceremony just with family and the registrar at the cute outdoor summerhouse and turned the upstairs barn into a karaoke room for the main event!
“The guests staying at the venue also loved the house – the rooms are stunning, a perfect balance of old and modern. Frances and team also organised fresh flowers throughout the house and prepared all the fireplaces for us.
“Thank you Frances, Alex and team for hosting a spectacular wedding!”
Stephanie and Chris, April 2023
Broadfield Court is set in a wonderful rural location with stunning views from the house and gardens. We were wowed by it on our first viewing and so were our guests on the day. The rooms are very comfortable, spacious and beautifully decorated. The house facilities are fantastic and provide all that you could need for a stay.
The Broadfield Court team are wonderful and fantastic at what they do. We were looked after by Helen who supported us through the process well and was very organised. We utilised as many local suppliers as possible, some of which were on the recommended supplier list and all of whom we were very pleased with. We were allowed to bring in some of our own also.
Broadfield Court allowed us a lot of flexibility in what we wanted to do as an exclusive use venue. The service was very personal which we found very refreshing after visiting a lot of venues. We had the venue for the weekend which allowed us and our chosen guests to enjoy time together in the house, set up and pack down without a rush and whilst everyone always says it goes by so fast, we did not feel that way.
We had a woodland wedding with tipis on the lawn. The staff were very helpful in setting up and packing down which was greatly appreciated and all were very friendly.
We can very confidently recommend this venue to you.
Amy and Phil, May 2023
Broadfield was the first venue we visited and the search for the perfect wedding venue was over. We instantly fell in love with the charming interior, and breathtaking grounds.
The wedding planning process was extremely smooth and stress free, Fran was very attentive, and talked us through our multiple options on how our wedding day could pan out. You can really tailor your wedding day to your unique style. We chose to have a woodland ceremony, drinks reception in the rose garden, and hired two tipis for the lawn which created a perfect space for dining & dancing, enjoying garden games and trips to the Broadfield bar for refreshments! The day ran like clockwork and the Broadfield team were always on hand if we needed anything.
Our guests were as much in awe of the venue as we were, and we received so many comments on how beautiful our wedding was. We stayed at Broadfield from Friday to Sunday which elongated our wedding to a whole weekend. We loved the fact we had accommodation for all of our immediate family and also our spaniels!
Jenny and James, July 2023
We fell in love with Broadfield immediately. It is about 5 venues in one – gorgeous house, beautiful grounds, secluded woodland, rustic barn, party bar… Fran, Alex and their team encouraged all of our crazy ideas and helped create the most special and personalised day for us. Having the exclusive use venue for a few days meant we could spend more time celebrating without ever feeling rushed. Every one of our guests was blown away – we cannot thank them enough.
Angela and Kate, July 2023
What a weekend – we had the best time at Broadfield Court!
Thank you to Helen and the whole team for making our day so special, from the beginning to the end, every detail thought of and nothing was too much hassle. I cannot express in words just how helpful the team were and responsive to our every need. And well the venue… just WOW. Thank you so much Broadfield Court – you were amazing xxx
Anisa and James, August 2023
We opted to go with Broadfield for our wedding that took place August 2023 and the whole experience was marvellous from start to finish. Helen and the team were hugely helpful over the long period leading up the event and helped us with every step of the planning process, including highlighting things that we s gorgeous and there are just so many areas to choose form when deciding where each part of the day should take place. We cannot overstate how great it is that Broadfield doesn’t hold weddings on consecutive days, so you can arrive in the afternoon the day before, stay overnight in the wonderful comfortable and spacious bedrooms, have the wedding, then stay overnight again and leave the following morning. It made for a very relaxed and stress free stay.
The wedding day itself went off perfectly and the team worked hard to make sure everything went as it should, and we can’t imagine any way it could have gone better. Top marks and would happily recommend Broadfield to anyone on the hunt for a venue.
Sarah and David, August 2023
We celebrated our wedding in August 2023 at Broadfield Court and it was the most perfect day we could have dreamed of! My husband is a wedding photographer and after all the beautiful wedding venues he wanted to show me this venue first. When we saw it, we fell in love with it immediately and we didn’t need to look any further!
The venue itself felt like home and all of our guests commented on how beautiful the building and the grounds were. Helen and the team took care of us as if we were one of their own. They were professional, kind and courteous from start to finish. We honestly cannot recommend this beautiful place highly enough! If you are considering getting married, please visit Broadfield, you won’t be disappointed!
Anna and Bob, August 2023
When we started looking for our wedding venue we knew exactly what we wanted but it wasn’t easy to find. We were after somewhere we could make our own for the whole weekend, somewhere our close friends and family could stay with us, somewhere that would allow us to do our wedding our way. When we found Broadfield Court we both fell in love. The house and gardens are beautiful and it’s in a stunning location. It’s family owned and I think it really shows – right from the start it was clear that Fran puts so much effort into each and every wedding she helps to plan. She was friendly, welcoming, and amenable to all our ideas for our big day, offering suggestions for suppliers and going the extra mile to ensure our wedding weekend was everything we hoped it would be – nothing was too much trouble.
The wonderful thing about Broadfield is that it’s a blank canvas (and a very beautiful one at that!). We were able to choose all our own suppliers and decide how we would like the weekend to go. For us this meant a relaxed pizza night with our friends on Friday, a woodland ceremony followed by lawn games and a drinks reception in the rose garden on Saturday afternoon, a band and dancing in our tipi until late, a fire drawing and sparklers in the fold yard, and a recovery BBQ on the lawn on Sunday.
Fran, Alex, and the rest of the Broadfield team were amazing. Everything went so smoothly and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect weekend. Many of our friends commented that it was the best wedding they’d ever been to and we would certainly agree!
I hope that Broadfield will feature in our anniversary/birthday/Christmas plans in years to come as it’s a very special place and somewhere I would love to return to again and again.
Thank you Fran, you’re the best!
Imi and Matt, September 2023
Broadfield is a stunning house and grounds that made our weekend magical from start to finish. Fran and Alex allow you to make your wedding day flexible, relaxed and personal, giving us the freedom to make the weekend all that we wanted and more. Their superb team of staff were professional, friendly, attentive and helpful. We cannot thank or recommend them enough! We will definitely be going back in the future, as Broadfield is such a special place.
Wow, what a 4 day weekend! I cannot recommend this venue enough. We had the most incredible bespoke wedding; Fran was so open to our ideas, organised, lovely and on it. This venue allows you to do what you want with no set suppliers, and you get your own fantastic wedding planner thrown in! We didn’t want the weekend to end. Thank you so much Fran & team – you are superb.
Helen and Beau, September 2023
As soon as we visited Broadfield Court we knew that this was where we wanted to get married. It was clear how versatile the setting could be, and how much we would be able to create our day just the way we had pictured it. We loved being able to use so many of the beautiful areas of Broadfield, both around the house but especially in the gardens, throughout the weekend of our wedding. The setting is so naturally beautiful that it needs very little decoration. It also took a lot of the worry out of planning a UK wedding, knowing that the inside of the venue was just as beautiful as the outside.
Being able to stay onsite throughout the weekend with some of our closest friends and family was a particular draw, especially as all the rooms are beautifully presented while also feeling homely and comfortable. The wedding day itself was so much more relaxed knowing that all the most important people were already onsite.
Throughout the process of planning, the level of organisation from the Broadfield team, especially Fran, was exemplary. She was prepared for any eventuality and completely open to our ideas. She made the planning process extremely easy for us, and could not have been more helpful, going above and beyond to make sure that not only the day itself, but our entire weekend at Broadfield ran smoothly. Fran and Alex were consistently upfront about any additional costs, but overall we cannot over-emphasise what excellent value Broadfield Court is: all our guests commented on how beautiful and peaceful it is, and enjoyed exploring the house and grounds. We would highly recommend Broadfield Court.
Thea and Fi, June 2023
Having been to see a few venues, we found everything so commercial that could fit over 150 people and had just about decided we would try and do something at home. Then we came across Broadfield, walked in and chatted to Fran and the team, and it was immediately obvious this was the place and the people! The smoothest process of planning, brainstorming and running on the day – so many guests commented on what an incredible hidden gem Broadfield is and asked how we found it. The house is amazing, though the gardens equally so, we had a June wedding and spent almost all our time outside but inside is also gorgeous for a colder season! All the rooms and unique and beautiful too. Couldn’t recommend it as a venue and team highly enough .. we’ll probably rent it for a future anniversary party just to be able to spend more time there!
