Merriscourt Weddings


As featured in Brides Magazine Top 100 Wedding Venues 2013, Merriscourt, situated in the heart of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds, is an elegant choice of venue for the perfect wedding in a stylish rural setting.


Merriscourt is privately owned by the Astor family forming part of the Astor’s Bruern Estate and dates back to the 15th century. Situated in an idyllic setting overlooking the rolling Cotswold landscape, and proudly off the beaten track, historic Merriscourt boasts a stunning Cotswold stone courtyard that provides a fine welcome. Its unique and versatile layout, with seating for up to 132, allows you and your guests to enjoy the most memorable day of your life. Two airy interconnected barns create a wonderful sense of space and light: the Civil Wedding Ceremony/Civil Partnership is conducted in the Stone Barn, and guests can then move on to the Gallery for a champagne and canapé reception. The lime-washed White Barn allows the wedding celebrations to progress smoothly and seamlessly from dinner to dancing.


Accommodation for the bride and groom is available in a traditional Cotswold 'Bothy' at Merriscourt, with breathtaking views towards Burford. A comprehensive list of local guest accommodation can also be provided, all within minutes of Merriscourt at Kingham, Chipping Norton, Burford and The Wychwoods.


Our in-house chefs select the very best of locally-sourced seasonal produce to ensure a delicious menu to meet all tastes. Merriscourt provides a comprehensive wine list, and there is also an option to bring your own wine.


Charlbury and Kingham Stations, with direct lines to London Paddington (approximately 70 minutes away), are within seven minutes of Merriscourt. Our staff are available to arrange transport for you and your guests throughout the day.
