Lovingly restored and renovated, Pentney Abbey offers exclusive use and is dedicated entirely to weddings. Each element of your day is carefully considered, from stunning ceremony spaces to idyllic gardens for welcome drinks and a magnificent barn for your wedding breakfast and evening party. You can even get ready in our lavish bridal preparation area and spend the night in luxurious bedrooms. It’s all for you.
We want you to relax from the moment you arrive at Pentney Abbey. With that in mind, our preparation room is all yours on the morning of your wedding. This contemporary, luxurious space features four large dressing tables with mirrors and beautifully upholstered chairs – just the place to pamper and prepare with your wedding party. Open the doors to find yourself outside, immediately opposite the entrance to the Gatehouse and your wedding ceremony.
Our splendid towering arched Gatehouse dates back to 1380 and boasts stunning stonework and carvings. It is here that you can marry, in an idyllic space that offers a serenity and ethereal ambiance perfectly suited to a ceremony in the style of a medieval wedding. Beside the Gatehouse, the Upper East Chamber awaits, a tranquil ‘ante room’ in which you can take a moment to relax both before and after saying your vows.
Originally used as a medieval banqueting hall, our Barn is quite the perfect setting for your wedding breakfast and evening party. Those seeking a unique venue will fall in love with its space, versatility, original features and character, with glass doors opening on to a generous patio and large expanse of lawn.
The mere mention of a Rose Garden conjures images of romance and sunshine! At Pentney Abbey, we hope you will enjoy welcome drinks as you stroll around the lawns, or perhaps even marry here using the pretty gravel pathways as your aisle. The magnificent Gatehouse and surrounding Norfolk countryside become your backdrop.
