Nestled within the Forest of Dean is a much-loved family home and totally Unusual Gloucestershire Wedding venue. Birthplace of Dick Whittington, Pauntley Court is a charming country house full of character


Surrounded by rolling Gloucestershire farmland Pauntley Court, a beautifully unusual Gloucestershire wedding venue sits proudly at the end of a private lane. Only the 16th century Dovecote and Norman Church are its neighbours.  

Enjoy the house, the wing and the Dovecote which can happily sleep up to 24 guests across the 10 individually designed bedrooms. The house and its bedrooms all have a cosy, warm atmosphere, with fresh flowers from the gardens in all the rooms, White Company linens, fluffy towels and robes. Painted murals along the landing illustrate the colourful characters who have been involved with Pauntley over the past 700 years. History oozes throughout this beauty. 

Outside you’ll discover gorgeous garden rooms. Quince orchards, hornbeam cloisters and yew hedges offer endless unique spaces for photos. Take a stroll down by the lake with a glass of your favourite tipple, play croquet or just experience the essence of Pauntley.

Furthermore you can choose from a church ceremony in the Norman Church next door, a civil ceremony in the glorious ballroom or an outdoor ceremony in any of the spaces in the gardens or down by the lake.  





Perfect for a small, intimate wedding or a larger party with a marquee/tipi of your choice. Make it yours for three days.  Only a small number of weddings take place at Pauntley each year and the owners what you to have the day you want. 



Tell me more!

Pauntley Court is believed to be the birthplace of Dick Whittington, born in 1352.  Dick became Lord Mayor of London four times over. Elinor Fettiplace whose recipes from the 1600s they celebrate, grew up at Pauntley Court and was one of the last members of the Whittington family to live there.  In the late 17th century, Pauntley Court was purchased by The Marquis of Somerset who had big plans to build ‘a great house of stone’  which today is represented by the ‘Ruin Garden’ where the foundations for this stone house were originally laid.

Say what?

|| We first came across Pauntley Court while looking for accommodation for friends over the weekend of our wedding. All of us fell in love with it when we came to see it. It is a truly unique house, combining beautiful comfort and attention to detail with quirk and charm and character. As a BnB, I noticed that it had almost 150 5-star reviews, with not a single complaint, and when you go and see the house and meet Melissa and Mark, you realise why. ||

|| All the rooms in the house are like a treasure hunt of luxury. Each beautiful old wooden door opening to another room, another stunning staircase, everything exquisitely furnished with its own character. Everyone’s comfort has been thought of: everyone has a bathroom, the beds are fit for royalty, everyone has views or something quirky about their room that makes them feel special. On top of that there are touches like fluffy gowns, fresh flowers everywhere, beautiful rich sheets and just a really lovely intimate feeling. The Dovecote and Elinor Fettisplace are more rustic chic and both utterly exquisite. To find such an unusual Gloucestershire wedding venue was a great feeling.||
