Weddings and special occasions

Welcome to Lower Slaughter Manor

An Intimate Affair Lower Slaughter Manor is one of the finest 17th Century manor houses in the Cotswolds, enjoying an idyllic setting in the middle of Lower Slaughter village, considered to be one of the prettiest villages in England. With its manicured gardens, fairy-tale architecture, rich interior and breath taking views, it is the picture-perfect venue for your special day. From choosing the venue, planning your day or straightening your veil as you walk down the aisle, we offer personal attention from an experienced team and the guarantee of bespoke, quality service.

Exclusively Yours Lower Slaughter Manor lends itself perfectly to exclusive use, set back in its own grounds offering privacy and space, intimate lounges and warm but discrete hospitality. The hotel comprises of nineteen luxurious rooms, all of which are different in style and design, including master bedrooms, four poster and double or twin rooms. Should you require further accommodation we can provide this at our sister property The Slaughters Country Inn, situated opposite Lower Slaughter Manor.

The Drawing Room and Panel Room The stylish Drawing Room is the perfect setting for the exchanging of vows. Situated at the front of the hotel, overlooking the manicured lawn, it is light, airy and spacious enough for the Bride to make her grand entrance. Day weddings of up to 22 guests can be held in the Drawing Room, providing the perfect opportunity to enjoy an intimate celebration with family and friends. The Panel Room, with its elaborate stucco ceiling and views out on to our pretty back lawn is an exquisite setting giving you a relaxed atmosphere to sit and spend time with your relatives and friends whilst enjoying a fabulous wedding breakfast. Special printed menus and place cards will also be created for you and your guests.

Sixteen58 Elegant and stylish, Sixteen58, is the perfect setting for your special celebration. We have a selection of menus and are always happy to accommodate your exact requirements. We can host a maximum of 74 guests in our dining room for a civil ceremony and sit down wedding breakfast. Our Head Chef and his brigade provide an exceptional standard of cuisine, excellent service and the continued high standards of the hotel’s fine dining. The menus always feature the best fresh local produce whenever possible as well as the very best continental produce when required. If you would like the opportunity to add an appetiser, pre-dessert, fish or cheese course or even a light night snack while your guests are dancing the night away, we would be more than happy to arrange this for you.

Events Team Whether you are looking for exclusive use or a smaller, more intimate affair our Events Manager will be on hand to offer advice and support to create the perfect day for you and your guests. They will be in communication with you as frequently as necessary to ensure total collective understanding and peace of mind. We recommend a select list of excellent suppliers we are confident will enhance your day, from photographers and florists to hair & make-up specialists and musicians. Civil Ceremonies need to be booked directly with the Registrars or Rector; they do get very busy so if you have a specific date in mind, it is always worth checking that they have availability before securing your venue. We look forward to hearing from you to arrange your special day!
