Where is The Copse?
All that the countryside has to offer yet so close to town.
Car parking for guests
Caterers are welcome to use our kitchens (if needed) but all wedding breakfast cutlery, crockery and glassware needs to be independently hired and returned dirty. This is to avoid you having to wash up, but also not to confuse items with those being used in the house for weekend guests.
We can source staff who have worked on site before to help with the running of your day or do ask your caterers if they can help.
Music and noise
Have a DJ or band play in The Barn for the evening music or If your budget is limited or you already know what music you want and have your own playlist, then stream it via the speakers in The Barn.
We are situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and ask that you and your guests respect the peace and quiet it affords.
How many can sleep at the house?
18 can sleep at the house. Babies and infants are not included in the head count but do speak to us first.
See floor plan for details – note that more bed spaces are provided for flexible sleeping arrangements. Additional people to stay in the house are not permitted under fire regulations.
Also we cannot use the fields for tents and teepees because it is against Oxford Council policy for our land – which is agricultural and not leisure.
How people can sit down to eat in The Pavilion?
100 can be seated for your wedding breakfast overlooking the pond.
This is only available April – September.
What are the basic supplies we can expect to find in the house?
Can I access a floor plan?
Yes, you can access the floor plan in the menu
What is the dog policy?
Are there rules for wedding guests at the garden reception?
We ask guests to respect the grounds and property. Cigarettes butts are not to be left around in the gardens but placed in bins or in pots of sand provided.
To be considerate of our neighbours.
Deductions will be made for items/damages as listed in the terms and conditions, which include not returning the property to it’s orginal state as found at the start of the booking (with the exception of general housekeeping) extra cleaning being necessary and not returning items to the decorations store and or leaving it in a tidy state.
Liability is not limited to this amount in the case of severe damage.
50% of the booking cost is required to secure your booking (this is non-refundable unless we get a booking in its place) with the reamining balance due no less than 12 weeks before your arrival date.
Can I reserve a weekend?
We can offer you the facility to reserve your chosen weekend for 4 weeks for £250. After this time a 50% deposit is due to secure your booking but if for whatever reason we are not the venue for you then we refund your £250 and relet the date.
What is your bar policy?
You can supply your choice of drinks and set them up at our bars (one by the stretch tent and the other in the barn). We hope you agree that you will want to relax and enjoy your party and have staff oversee the running of this for you.
So why not supply your choice of drinks but let our barmen, or your approved barmen serve the drinks if this is to be an open bar?
Arrival and departure
But in return, we expect couples and all the helpers they have found to have returned the house, its contents and grounds to its original state…just ready for the cleaners.
If you can’t face the idea of tidying up and just want to relax as a newly married couple with your friends and family then why not enlist our helpers to run around and collect up all of the rubbish, return decorations to the store and put the site back to its orginal state.
What is there to do for the house guests?
Are there many places locally for guests to stay?
Please see our terms for more details.
Weekend viewings are difficult to arrange as most weekends we have guests who book out the house.
