Country House Wedding Venues

Finding the right venue for your wedding can be a difficult task. Having arrived at this page you will already be thinking along the lines of looking for alternative venues to your marriage or reception. Big Cottages can offer various types of accommodation. You may be looking for a country house wedding venue near to your place of marriage that can offer self catering accommodation for yourself and your guests for somewhere to stay as your base for the wedding; some may also be able to offer outside catering for your reception. Other properties are licensed wedding venues, where the marriage ceremony can also take place. We differentiate between the two so that you can more easily find something to suit your needs.
