Jo and I wanted to say a huge thank you for a truly unforgettable weekend. You Paul and the Drovers Team are EPIC! And nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for going beyond and above anything that could be expected of a venue. The Food was absolutely awesome. All our guests commented on it being being so incredibly delicious. We loved that it was locally sourced, homegrown and seasonal. Your help during the year to plan and make the best of the hidden spaces on the farm made our wedding celebration truly memorable. We didn't want to leave!!!

We fell in love with your venue because it was in fact so versatile and would be amazing for the rock n roll wedding we had in mind. Having looked around for ages we were losing hope and your new venue popped up. We saw it featured on festival brides and rock my wedding blogs which we religiously had been following to get inspiration. So glad we did. We thought if they thought you were so cool you must be!! We  visited and really fell in love. The photos do not do you justice. Love that you only do a limited number of weddings  a year. And the fact that so much was included that we had to do very little to make it our own. The party lasted all weekend too because of the stunning onsite accommodation. Kesri  (owner of the venue) is also sooo creative and helped to brainstorm with us and to put us in touch with amazing suppliers to make our dream wedding come true. Thank You!!

We sent out loads of requests for information on venues. We were looking for a destination wedding in the UK , what with Brexit we did not want to plan anything abroad, and in fact most of our friends couldn't come to France or Italy where we initially thought we would get married. Friends and family being there was far more important to us. So what drew us to Drovers was the fact that not only did they have 2 barns, gorgeous outdoor spaces and lush onsite accommodation. The farm would not look out of place in the South of France!!Right from the first email back from Kesri (owner) Drovers stood out. She was so warm and interested in what we wanted for our wedding day. She asked me the right questions making me think - what was a special dish that would be magical to have on our wedding day. A cocktail that had a meaning to us as a couple etc. Our wedding was truly magical. We made the most of the weekend and had wonderful mini events throughout the weekend in different spaces on the farm. All our friends now want to get married at Drovers!! I wanted to say Im glad I was first but actually the amazing thing is the venue has so much to offer that every wedding would have a completely different look and feel

Drovers was the absolutely perfect venue for our dream festival wedding. Love love love the posh glamping and the cottages for the oldies was ideal. The owners helped us with an additional bell tent village to accommodate extra guests. This looked so gorgeous, way better than camping which would not have added to the festival vibe. The venue did amazing street food and recommended a number of bands which we used throughout the weekend. I would really go for the venue's food. So much care and passion goes into it. Its lush, seasonal, locally sourced or home grown right on the farm. It felt good to know our wedding food was field to fork. They are also very environmentally conscious and the food is grown on the farm the proper way. We are still coming down from the high that was our wedding festival weekend. Thank you to the amazing Drovers Team. You rock!! And we love you.

If you are thinking of booking don't hesitate. This venue is a hidden gem. Its not widely know. Only people in the know. Like a secret venue, the owners don't do too much marketing for it as their weekends get booked anyways. Visiting is key. You will be blown away!. It can be as casual or formal as you want it for your set up. Cool or trendy too. We opted for a full on sit down formal meal which was plated and it felt so special. The 3 course meal prepared by the in-house chef, was really incredibly delicious. Drovers Team are really awesome. Nothing is too much trouble and they are warm and friendly. I felt most other venues were more like wedding factories but much care has gone into the planning of the venue and how they approach weddings. The owners  themselves work with their couples. We felt really special throughout and all our individual needs were taken into account for a wedding that felt truly personal.  They made it completely stress free and a magical experience from planning through to the final event. Drovers is a very special place close to our hearts.
