Nestled amongst acres of idyllic Hertfordshire countryside, Ponsbourne estate feels a world away from central London. The timeless manor has been restored to its former glory, with all the modern touches needed to host your perfect day.
As you enter the sweeping drive leading to the Ponsbourne hotel, you get a sense of its rich tapestry of history. The stunning country manor is built in a symmetrical Victorian style, steeped in the splendour of a bygone era. It compliments rather than contrasts, and blends beautifully into the surrounding landscape. Coupled with its scenic vantage point on the crest of a hill, Ponsbourne is the ultimate backdrop to any classical or cultural wedding celebration.
The estate has passed the hands of gentry over time, and so the venue is naturally primed for hosting stately occasions. The exterior looks as though time has stood still, but as you grace the hallways inside, you’ll soon notice the artful weaving of past and present. The building has been lovingly renovated just this year with tasteful luxury additions, such as polished marble floors, velvet seating and muted wall colours. Upstairs, the luxury rooms are elegantly appointed with plush upholstery, glamorous chandeliers and some have state of the art massage beds. Your guests will feel instantly relaxed and prepared for a blissful weekend celebrating your union.

Lovely hotel and surroundings. Catering supplied large, well cooked portions which everyone raved about. Staff were courteous and very helpful going above and beyond especially when the cab failed to turn up, a member of staff took guests to the train station.
To make all the arrangements we dealt with Jenny, the events organiser, she was so professional, friendly and accommodating, nothing was to much trouble. We felt completely confident with Jenny to ensure everything went smoothly. On the day it was perfect, from the receptionist that greeted us, to all the staff that served us it was faultless. The food was delicious, well cooked and well presented. Again, nothing was too much trouble if we asked for anything and it was all done with a smile on their faces. So thank you to all of you involved in making it a complete success, we would highly recommend your venue to others and wouldn't hesitate to return ourselves.
The wedding was great thanks to the hotel venue. Firstly the food. The wedding breakfast was the tastiest I've ever had. I had delicious chicken, moist and flavoursome and an unusual but lovely champagne and strawberry jelly. The evening buffet was good too, lots of finger food which went down well.
After the meal we had a bit of time before cake cutting so we went and played a little golf which was a really good additional activity. The grounds are really pretty and good for photos. I would recommend this place for a wedding reception to anyone. A lovely place.
