THE BEAR OF RODBOROUGH- Visit website -
You’ll find The Bear of Rodborough perched neatly on top of Rodborough Common, with endless views over the Cotswold countryside and a herd of free-roaming cows for neighbours! Full of charming quirks, this is certainly a wedding venue to remember.
Dating back to the 17th Century, The Bear of Rodborough started life as a coaching inn and has been welcoming guests ever since. The stylish country interiors (designed by owner Pamela Horton) perfectly complement the history and character of the building – look out for the original stone archways, roaring log fires and pair of friendly stuffed bears in reception!
The Bear is situated high on the Stroud Valley amongst acres of National Trust land and each summer the hotel shares its home on Rodborough Common with a herd of Belted Galloway cows! The cows are free-roaming and often caught peering in through the windows, so be prepared for a few extra guests if planning a summer wedding!
Inside the hotel there are a selection of lovely rooms that are perfect for hosting your dream wedding day from the ceremony itself to the wedding breakfast and a good old party in the evening! Our smallest room, ‘Tower’ can host 26 people – perfect for more intimate occasions; meanwhile, the newly refurbished Terrace Room has space for up to 70 and opens out onto our garden terrace and marquee; exclusively reserved for wedding parties. Our Library Restaurant can also be used for weddings of up to 90 guests, subject to availability.
What’s more, there’ll be no need for carriages at midnight at there are 46 individually designed bedrooms for your guests to stay the night.
