Hawthorn Grove, Great Doddington

A unique and picturesque outdoor wedding and events venue in a bucolic, rural woodland setting with views across the Nene Valley.

Nestled in 280 acres of rolling pasture on a beautiful family farm in the Northamptonshire countryside, Hawthorn Grove is the perfect fairytale setting for weddings and events with a magical and quirky vibe. Hidden away from the outside world and with exclusive use, this beautiful secluded spot looks down to Summer Leys Nature Reserve and the River Nene, giving a stunning backdrop for photos and incredible views.

Arrive in style down the winding farm tracks – this place has got Far from the Madding Crowd written all over over it – and hold your ceremony under the tree canopy surrounded by nature. We’re thinking flower crowns, glowing lanterns and festival vibes.

The meadow adjacent to the spinney is perfect for a reception marquee, or you can even have tables in the woodland itself if you want that rustic wilderness touch. There’s plenty of scope to get creative and put your own stamp on this incredible venue.

There’s also a well-appointed honeymoon suite in an annexe adjoining the nearby farmhouse, allowing the bridal party space to get ready and the happy couple to relax in style when they’re all partied out at the end of the night.

Hawthorn Grove will be holding a wedding Open Day on 30 April. Email to book your place.
