A word from the owner
I have lived at Iscoyd since 2009, with Susie, our children Poppy, Hector, Cecily, and Freda and Mabel and the dogs. We have been restoring he house and gardens, which opened as a wedding venue in May 2010. We have a great passion for Iscoyd and for the experience it provides for all those that come here and we can’t wait to share it with you.
The house mainly dates back to 1737, incorporating some slightly earlier elements, and has been in the Godsal family for 175 years.
During the Second World War the house itself was leased to St Godric's Secretarial College, which had been evacuated from Finchley, North London.
The Park was requisitioned in 1942 for a U S Army hospital, for treatment of both allied forces, and German Prisoners of War casualties. The Americans left shortly after VE Day, and the camp became a hospital for Polish Refugees.
Phil's great grandparents returned in 1947, and lived in a self contained flat at the back of the house. The camp was eventually demolished in 1957, Phil's grandparents moved in in 1964 and restored the front of the house.
A country house wedding venue and private events venue, exclusively yours to invite your family and friends, full of warmth, happiness, romance and elegance.
We hope that you enjoy exploring the house and gardens here and discovering what makes Iscoyd so special and different.
Thank you so much for everything you and the amazing Iscoyd team did to make our wedding day perfect! It was everything we had hoped for and more and all of our guests commented on how fantastic the venue was and how friendly all of the staff were.
The Garden Room seats up to 130 guests. With its long aisle, series of arches and Portland stone floor, it is almost church-like in feel. The Drawing Room, seating 60, has a very different feel. A smaller and more intimate space, it is full of character and history with a romantic elegancy.
Nestled in idyllic and unspoilt countryside on the edge of the estate, the church overlooks a little brook. The romantic setting is echoed by the atmosphere inside. The church has a galleried seating area and can accommodate up to 150 people.
If your reception is inside, it will be based in the Drawing Room and interconnecting Little Drawing Room and Main Hall. These rooms form the heart and soul of the house. If you choose outdoors there is a wonderful variation of formal gardens and wilder areas.
The Permanent Marquee is connected directly to the house and reached via the Garden Room. With lovely views over the gardens it is perfect for 50-160 guests. For smaller weddings the Drawing Room provides a more intimate space for the wedding feast.
We have 11 award winning bedrooms, all individually designed with beautiful en-suite bathrooms that can be rented on a B&B basis.
There are also two self catering cottages, providing a further 7 bedrooms.
Our bedrooms have been awarded with the Hudson's Heritage Award in 2012 for Best Accommodation. Visit Wales Gold Award 2015/16/17 for serviced accommodation.
Described by the Telegraph in 2016 as having beautifully appointed bedrooms, offering a style and sense of individuality that would put most 5 Star hotels to shame!
Leave identikit hotels and event venues at the gates. Iscoyd Park is the perfect haven for businesses to celebrate together, reward staff for achievements or find the quietness needed to gain a fresh perspective.
Just over an hour from Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham, Iscoyd Park offers a healthy balance between work and play.
Across the five reception rooms indoors, you’ll find high-speed Wi-Fi, long tables, soft sofas and plenty of natural light. Whilst outside, the acres of parkland, the gardens and private cricket pitch (complete with umpire) provide plenty of space for you to relax, celebrate, bond and unwind however best you need.
The 14 en-suite bedrooms have been beautifully designed with modern flare by interior designer Suzy Hoodless. Featuring four poster beds, roll top baths, ornate wallpaper and elegant furnishings, each of the rooms give a nod to the unique heritage of the house but includes the comforts you can expect from any quality venue.
Beyond the capabilities of any city venue, at Iscoyd you’ll be able to make use of the ample space and the breadth of activities you can do on site. From clay pigeon shooting to orienteering, assault courses to zorbing, we work alongside trusted outdoor event organisers, Original Outdoors.
Beyond the estate, there is beautiful countryside for walks and cycling and for those eager for a bigger challenge, we can arrange trips to Snowdonia from Iscoyd.
In the evening, the house comes into its own as a place to relax, entertain and enjoy the company of others. We can arrange three course dinners in the dining room, dancing in the Garden Room, cocktail hour at the bar with our resident world-champion bartender or relax around the fire with some wines from the cellar.
You’ll have the support of our events team and kitchen staff, who are on-hand to ensure the evening runs to perfection. Iscoyd Park is also the ideal location for product launches, photo shoots, film location, merger meetings together with private meetings.
We welcome requests for filming.
