Overview

Chippenham Park is a thriving family estate. The house, gardens, and park were created at the very end of the 17th century by Admiral Lord Russell with permission from William II. The gardens have been awarded the highest two-star rating by the Good Gardens Guide and are notable for their vast swathes of snowdrops and aconites in late winter followed by a superb spring show of daffodils, hellebores, spring bulbs and blossoms.

We are open several times throughout the seasons from the first snowdrops to the last late-autumn colour and for extended periods from Feb–April including a wonderful Easter Egg Hunt for children every year. Our fully licensed Potting Shed Tearooms serve delicious home-made hot food, teas, coffee and cakes and are open the same days as the gardens.

Weddings

Set within the charming village of Chippenham on the Cambridgeshire/Suffolk border, Chippenham Park is a beautiful wedding venue for your big day.

Nestled within 300 acres of exquisite landscaped parkland, Chippenham Park is the perfect country location for your wedding celebrations. The tree-lined approach to the 18th century, grade II listed building sets an elegant tone for the day.

Available for ceremonies and receptions, you can hold your whole day here. There are three wonderful locations on site that are licensed to hold your civil ceremony or partnership with up to 120 guests. One option for your ceremony is our delightful rose-covered summerhouse which looks out over the picturesque lake. If you have your heart set on a church service, and have a connection to the local parish, St Margaret’s Church is located nearby.

Wherever you choose to hold your ceremony, Chippenham Park can accommodate you and your guests for an unforgettable reception. For a drinks reception you have a variety of options, from the Old Ballroom, Tharp Hall, or on the rose-lined South Terrace.

The marquee on the grounds is the perfect spot for your wedding breakfast, seating up to 200 guests. The marquee boasts stunning views over the beautiful grounds and lake for a relaxing setting heading into the evening. For the reception, you can invite a few more guests for a lively party atmosphere. The raised decking and seating area allow your event to flow outside and offers you and your guests a peaceful retreat from the excitement of the day.
