When it comes to wedding planning, one of the first things you’ll be thinking about is your wedding venue accommodation. At our Wiltshire wedding venue, you can rest assured we’ve got you covered when it comes to accommodation. 

Think about your wedding day and we’re sure you’re envisioning a day full of love, surrounded by those who adore you and those who have a dedicated space in your heart. There’s nothing that dims the joy more than their time with you being cut short due to lack of on-site accommodation, or even worse, you having to leave your own wedding day to travel back to your own accommodation!

In this blog, we’ll be discussing the importance of finding a wedding venue with accommodation, the benefits of having wedding accommodation for both guests and newlyweds, as well as accommodation options at our gorgeous Wiltshire wedding venue, Chalk Barn. Take a read.

Why is wedding accommodation so important?

Wedding accommodation at your chosen wedding venue is a huge benefit. While it is first and foremost practical, this isn’t the sole reason why it’s so important; it’s about creating a space where your celebrations can take place without interruption! 

Picture your closest guests being able to give you their undivided attention, without clock watching, under the starlit sky with no worries of journeying home, all before they take mere steps away from the dancefloor to retreat back to their cosy spaces. It’s these small touches that allow everyone to fully embrace the celebrations of your wedding day. 

In essence, wedding accommodation weaves an extra thread of romance into your wedding day, ensuring that your closest guests can be completely present, instead of worrying about the arrival time of their taxi. 

The benefits of wedding accommodation

Your guests can be more present

Guest wedding accommodation benefits both your closest guests, as well as yourselves as newlyweds in a multitude of ways. 

Extending beyond convenience, guest wedding accommodation offers the luxury of fully immersing your closest guests in the celebrations, without having to navigate strict timeframes of transportation. They can dive into every aspect of the celebration, from the heartfelt speeches to the last dance, knowing that a luxury stay awaits, just a stone’s throw away. 

No need to depart early 

For you gorgeous newlyweds, having accommodation allows you to savour and soak up every last previous moment of your wedding day with no need to rush off. In addition, your wedding day can be an overwhelming time, and newlywed accommodation provides you with a dedicated space where you can steal a private moment together, perhaps with your photographer, allowing you to reflect on the whirlwind of emotions throughout the day. Lastly, you may also be a bride keen for an outfit change, and newlywed accommodation can be the perfect host for it. 

Extending the experience

Leaving your wedding venue at midnight to head to a hotel can be a little depressing. You’ve spent months and months preparing for this life changing event, and to suddenly rush off to a potentially completely different experience might leave you feeling a bit disappointed, particularly if it doesn’t meet expectations. 

Staying at wedding accommodation at your Wiltshire wedding venue ensures your luxury wedding experience continues into the second day, too.

Brambledown Cottage

Dining room is brambledown cottage
Brambledown Cottage is the ideal spot for a larger group of friends or family for your big day.

Situated a mere stone’s throw away in the village of Rushall, Brambledown Cottage is our beautiful, detached, open plan accommodation for your wedding day guests. With 5 double bedrooms, it’s suitable for up to 10 guests to reside for one or two nights, so they can truly soak up the wedding experience with you.

Allow your guests to socialise and reminisce about your wedding day memories until their heart’s content with the airy, open plan living, kitchen and dining space, extending the magic of your wedding day way beyond the primary venue.

On-Site Glamping – Coming Summer 2024

Perfect for those summer nights – from June 2024 your guests will be able to retreat back to luxury glamping accommodation under the stars in the heart of the rolling hills behind our Wiltshire wedding venue.

Leave the traditional tent nature to the back of your mind and think of a spacious experience with comfortable ‘proper’ beds and quality linens, running electric including lighting, Indian hand-woven rugs and of course, the peaceful sounds of nature that we all know and love to end a day full of celebrations. There are also on-site showers and toilets.

Worried the glamping tents will spoil the view? Let us reassure you, we’d never do anything to take away from our unrivalled scenery! Our glamping tents are safely tucked away at the back of the venue and won’t be seen in your wedding photography. 

Shepherds Huts – Coming Soon

In the coming months, 4 of your closest guests will be able to journey back to two on-site enchanting and luxurious shepherd’s huts, each offering a unique blend of rustic charm and modern comfort.

Allow your guests to soak up every element of your day before retreating back to a cosy sanctuary, complete with a plush bed, a snug seating area bathed in natural light, while surrounded by the soothing sounds of wildlife.
