Overlooking the beautiful scenery of the River Avon and surrounding countryside, The Boathouse is a stunning setting for your special day. The perfect reception venue, The Boathouse is also approved, and Civil Ceremonies can be held at any time, day or evening. Ceremonies are held inside the building, but if you wish you could complete the legal formalities inside and have your own unique blessing along the banks of the river.

For smaller receptions we have our delightful conservatory, with beautiful riverside views and doors opening up on to the garden. This room can accommodate 32 people seated or 100 standing. Larger ceremonies can be held in our ground floor bar and restaurant area, which can accommodate up to 250 people seated and 400 standing.


At The Boathouse we have nine beautiful bedrooms, some with balconies overlooking the River Avon. All rooms are en suite and stylishly decorated. If you would like to block-book the rooms we can provide them at a discounted rate of £100 per room, including a full breakfast menu. The Bridal Suite will be complimentary. We are happy to give you a tour of the rooms (subject to availability) at your initial consultation.

We will start by inviting you to The Boathouse for an informal consultation where we can show you around the venue, as well as discuss your ideas around budget, numbers, menus, drinks, entertainment and accommodation etc. We will fol ow this up with a costed list of options for your big day, which will help you make the best informed decision to create the best day imaginable.

Prior to meeting, we will send you an Event Enquiry form that will help us get a better understanding of what you are looking for. We can also hold Naming Ceremonies and Renewal of Vows Ceremonies.
