Acton Scott

The Most Romantic Country Venues and Efficient Planning Services for Your Wedding

The Acton Scott Estate offers various idyllic and romantic venues for your marriage celebrations.

There are four principle venues:

Henley Farmhouse: Marquee

A marquee on the lawn of Henley Farmhouse allows for generous capacity in a most picturesque setting: the pitch site comfortably allows a marquee to seat 200 at tables with room for a dance floor and bar (for music after 11pm we offer the West Barn event suite - see below). The adjacent proximity of the marquee area to the farmhouse enhances the ease with which the virtues of this site can be enjoyed.

In addition to engaging our lawn for the citing of large marquees, gazeebos, portaloos, generators and other amenities, you can also ask us to make the neighbouring field available to you so that your guests can benefit from the extensive additional parking that allows. The parking area utilises an excellently well drained piece of land and is most conveniently located for your guests. The full grounds fee for these things is £1000, although for more restricted permissions that fee can be as low of £300.

Henley Farmhouse: West Barn Event Suite

Henley Farmhouse's West Barn is a beautiful 17th stone and timber structure comprising two rooms (the 'Studio' and the 'Audience Chamber/Feasting Hall'), either or both of which you can hire as an add-on to your Henley Farmhouse booking. Both rooms have luxurious underfloor heating throughout and each has its own en suite WC (to supplement the ample bathroom capacity with which the farmhouse next door is equipped). The West Barn is situated closely to Henley Farmhouse’s main kitchen which is itself handsomely equipped and planned to accommodate most catering requirements.

The 'Studio' has naturally stained oak beams, beautiful lighting and authentic stone walls tastefully painted flat white - it is the 'blank canvas' that those wishing to plan their own decorations are looking for.  Standing capacity 80 (including staff).  Seated capacity 40.  £300 Friday 10am through Sunday 5pm.


The 'Audience Chamber/Feasting Hall' on the other hand, is a splendidly decorated hall, with an impressive 42 lamp electrified chandelier plus optional concealed lighting, several smaller chandeliers for use with candles, a large baronial fireplace, tapestry throughout and numerous other poetical features, everything designed in carefully good taste.  Standing capacity 80 (including staff).  Table seated capacity 40.  Theatre style seating capacity TBC.  £300 Friday 10am through Sunday 5pm.


Shooting Lodge

It is sometimes also possible to put up two or three smaller marquees (to seat perhaps 150) at another property, the Shooting Lodge. Should you find that Henley Farmhouse is occupied on your desired date you may wish to enquire about the availability of the Shooting Lodge as a site for marquees.

The Shooting Lodge further benefits from its own elegant and arcadian banquetting room / drawing room which could itself be specially refurnished for the occasion of your event to seat 20 to 30 people at tables.


Village Hall

Acton Scott Village Hall would make a delightful and supremely affordable venue for your wedding.

The hall seats a maximum number of 60 people seated at tables. Tables and chairs are available for this number. The hall can accommodate 100 for dancing (with reduced seating capacity at tables).

Music and dancing is permitted 8am to 1am.
