One of the main draws of this charming Cotswold-stone house is its four acres of gardens, including a partial moat and four outdoor spots licensed for ceremonies.

The other is the hosts' flexible approach - you can choose your own suppliers - and personal attention. You have the choice of a barn or marquee reception.

The most idyllic Cotswold-stone house imaginable, Friar's Court is big enough to feel grand, but quaint enough to feel like home. Once you've made your way up the main drive and through the pillared entrance, the four acres of gardens are the real draw. With a partial moat and gorgeous gardens - including a romantic 'Winterhalter' Wedding Garden that's perfect for photos - there are three licensed outdoor areas where you can
say 'I do'. Friar's Court is run by interior designer Jeffrey Cleaver. He'll ensure your big day is stylish and stress-free, whether you opt for a marquee in the grounds or the rustic-chic of the Stone Barn.
