There is nowhere in England quite like The Mill at Gordleton – proud winners of the Wedding Venue of the Year at the prestigious 2017 Les Routiers Awards.

Our restored 17th-century flour mill is nestled on the banks of the River Avon and offers an ivy-clad retreat in the heart of the enchanting New Forest.

Our secret art gardens, described by The Times as “one of the most picturesque of any hotels in Britain” provide the backdrop to the most beautiful weddings for miles.

Making your day really special

From award-winning catering to suit your tastes, to a team dedicated to looking after every last detail, we are devoted to making your day truly special.

The Mill at Gordleton offers a luxurious marquee in our grounds for weddings.

As part of your wedding we offer a beautiful bridal suite for you to spend your first night in. With a king size bed, freestanding bath and separate sitting room overlooking the river and gardens, it can be reserved for you to enjoy your first night in style and will give you a private space so that you can get ready for your big day. Our wedding suite has its own personal entrance so that bride and bridesmaids can relax and get ready unseen and hairdressers, make up artists and the all-important mother of the bride can come too and fro!

There are individually styled luxury rooms for your guests, and even a special cottage for your family, meaning that everyone can stay in one place making arrangements easy. We can happily host a rehearsal dinner the day before for family.

A secret garden for your guests to enjoy

Step into the secret garden at The Mill at Gordleton for a truly stunning wedding reception where quaint footbridges span the meandering River Avon. Ducks play on the water and kingfishers can be spotted darting from bank to bank!  Here, wild flowers grow in abundance, in amongst a canopy of mature trees and sculptures by local artists. It’s photographer’s dream and a seriously special place for a beautiful Hampshire country reception.

Professional planning, attention to detail

The Mill at Gordleton team will welcome and guide you from start to finish making sure everything is perfect for your special day.

All weddings and civil partnerships at The Mill are individual and unique. Your own personal wedding planner will spend as much time as necessary with you to make sure everything is perfect for your big day, and we are licensed for ceremonies.

“On one of the most important days of your life you want nothing more than perfection when it comes to your venue, your food, hospitality and service. This is exactly what we received from The Mill. Right from the early planning stages we have had nothing but exemplary service, tailored to meet our individual needs to the finest detail. The no pressure and no hassle approach from the Mill Staff made the whole process of organising our wedding an absolute pleasure.” – DB, TripAdvisor

“We stayed overnight for a family wedding. The room was very comfortable and we were struck by the attention to detail. We had everything we needed to ensure a comfortable stay and the room was charming with a double view over the water and the gardens. The bed also deserves a mention as it was very comfortable. The bathroom is very modern and also beautifully appointed. We had the wedding meal in the restaurant and the food was excellent. Breakfast the following morning was also excellent and they catered for our wedding party after breakfast finished for the other guests. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Mill and we will definitely stay here again.” – JB, TripAdvisor
