Gaddens Weddings Venue – A Beautiful New Forest Manor House

Gaddens country house has always been a private residence since it was built in the 1920s. for the first time the house is available for private hire for a limited number of exclusive weddings and events throughout the year. The house is located in the heart of the New Forest National Park. This wonderful post World War 1 venue provides everything required for an exclusive wedding. If you are looking for a venue that you can really add your own style to then this will be for you.

Gaddens is a south facing Manor House built during the ‘arts and crafts’ period of the 1920s. This beautiful house keeps many of the traditional features, but has been completely modernised within. The house now offers a tranquil setting for weddings that will be completely unique. There is a mature rambling garden which is ideal for a marquee and will be perfect for wedding photos that you can cherish for a lifetime. The marquee can be located in a paddock opposite the house, which we have called Gaddens Park.
The amazing ground floor accommodation included in the Venue has large 6m X 6m Reception Room, Oak panelled Study, Beautiful Drawing Room leading to delightful Sun Room, Large Family Room/Kitchen, Further Kitchen, Boot Room, three cloakrooms and pretty courtyard.

We only host a small number of weddings each year, so choosing Gaddens gives exclusivity, and guests will not be asked to make way for the next Bride!

This perfect country house wedding venue is highly flexible and will provide you with a stunning backdrop for your special day.

The Wedding Venue

There are many different options available to you at Gaddens. If you are looking to host a small wedding of up to 30, we can accommodate you inside the house. Alternatively, we offer a fully fitted marquee which can seat up to 100.
There is accommodation available; The wing of the house is completely self contained and furnished throughout. Located across two floors, there are 4 double bedrooms sleeping up to 9 guests, together with a kitchen, large lounge with wood burner, entrance hall and cloakroom. We do also offer exclusive use of the whole house which, including our Bridal Suite, offers nine bedrooms. Wedding Bed and Breakfast can be arranged.

Opposite Gaddens Manor House, you will find ‘Gaddens Park’. This open space is the perfect area to have any marquee and therefore really does offer you a blank canvas to style as you wish! This can be used to host a small wedding or large enough to host up to 200 guests.


One of the advantages of its ‘Private House’ location is that catering can be arranged at any level that is required (buffet options through to silver service in a marquee for up to 200 guests). Another benefit is that you can provide your own alcohol, including champagne, which does not incur additional corkage costs.

The ceremony

Have you thought of having a Celebrant performing a ceremony especially designed for you? This can be arranged in the House or grounds making the day very special for you & your family.
There are churches located in both Ringwood and Burley and each area is only 10 minutes away. Ringwood also has a Registry Office.


Gaddens provides plenty of parking so your guests will have no problem finding a space. The parking is even able to match the 200 people marquee option, something that many hotels and other venues cannot provide.
