Lyde Court dates back to the 14th Century and is part of the vast Duchy of Cornwall Estate. Set in a private and isolated Herefordshire valley, yet only two miles from Hereford City centre.
Our weddings take place in the Barns which are adjacent to the main house and gardens. The 17th Century Stone Barns have undergone minimal changes in 400 years and are completely unspoilt. The stone walls, elm beams, vaulted ceilings and arrow slit windows give a wonderful ambience and provide the perfect venue for a romantic wedding.
The stone Tithe barns allow you to create your perfect day without the restraints imposed by large hotels or corporate venues. From small intimate weddings with 25 guests through to large gatherings of 250 people we have the perfect venue. All weddings have exclusive use of the venue.
The lawn in front of the house is perfect for a Champagne reception with canapes, with perhaps a Jazz band, classical guitarist or string quartet playing. With beautiful 360 degree countryside views the country gardens are a wonderful backdrop for those special wedding photographs.
We can cater for any style of wedding reception. From hog roasts to 7 course banquets we can accommodate your every wish. Please have a look at our Catering page for menu ideas.
You have the flexibility to choose and organise your own entertainment but we can also recommend tried and tested musicians and groups to suit your requirements. Whether your style is a Jazz quintet, folk group, a local ceilidh band, string quartet, covers band or disco we can arrange suitable entertainment for your celebrations.
A licensed bar run by friendly and experienced staff will look after you throughout the celebrations.
The licenced hours for our bar are 2am for Friday and Saturday weddings and midnight for Sunday to Thursday weddings.
The party can spill out into the lawned courtyard and adjoining walled garden which are atmospherically lit in the evening. This area provides the perfect setting for an evening pig roast or barbeque.
