Cotswold Lodge Hotel

One of our approved venues for marriages and other civil ceremonies

Cotswold Lodge is an independent 4-star hotel located in a conservation area within walking distance from Oxford's historic city centre.

We specialise in tailor-made wedding receptions. With our wide local knowledge, we can recommend suppliers for flowers, cake, entertainment and wedding stationery to make your special day everything you wish.

Couples benefit from the personal attention of our dedicated wedding co-ordinator from the initial enquiry through to the celebration. Newly-weds are able to relax with their guests and enjoy the most important day of their lives knowing all the details have been taken care of.

The hotel is licensed to hold civil ceremonies. These can be held in the beautiful Drawing Room for up to 30 guests or the bright and airy Norham suite for up to 100 guests. Civil packages start from £480.

Whether you are considering a champagne-and-canapés reception or a sit-down dinner followed by dancing, the Norham Suite provides the ideal space for your celebration. Open access to the Mediterranean-style garden courtyard adds a special dimension to summer weddings. We offer a range of packages to suit your needs if you prefer the inclusive option.
