This Grade-I listed royal hunting lodge, which was originally built in 1550, shoots straight to the top of the character list. Expect wisteria-draped, 200-year-old bridges, creaky floorboards, and having to hunch to pass through ancient low-slung doors. Despite its age, though, the place is immaculately maintained.
Post-breakfast, once all your guests have left, take a dip in the outdoor (heated!) pool and explore the magnificent grounds, which feature a Saxon moat, sunken rose garden, grassed amphitheatre and no fewer than four secret gardens.

You might have a few wedding crashers if the local swans choose to glide by during your ceremony on the Archery lawn at Great Fosters.
The rest of the gorgeous grounds are as scenic - secret gardens, a wisteria-draped Japanese bridge, a lake and plenty of perfectly trimmed box hedges. There's a 14th-century barn for receptions, plus you're only a 20-minute drive from Heathrow for a swift honeymoon exit.
