Nestled in the heart of the woods is the Bluebell Glade, a beautiful open space where you can erect a marquee, tipi or simply dine and dance under the woodland canopy. Just a short stroll along a meandering pathway through the woodland takes you to the Hazel Bower where you can exchange your wedding vows in our charming handmade Oak Arbour. Whilst your family and friends sit under a stunning cathedral roof of ancient trees. It can also be used as an intimate event space for parties. And if the trees are not enough to protect you from the elements we have a bespoke stretch canvas we can erect for big downpours and brollies to share for light showers. On the edge of the woodland is the Oak Grove an enchanting space where the wildlife crosses from our woods through to the open fields beyond. Used for guests to mingle following a wedding ceremony, a peaceful place to meditate on a retreat, or a canopy to sleep under the stars in, whatever you decide to use it for the Oak Grove will be truly magical.
Hidden throughout the woods are secret spaces for you to discover, from romantic tree swings, to meditation benches, cosy fire pits and mysterious wishing trees we are sure you will delight in finding them.
We have built two elegant toilet blocks sourced from local materials, have our own pure spring water from the Stonehenge aquifer and electricity in the woods, but don’t expect wifi! We have a list of trusted suppliers who we can wholeheartedly recommend for tipi’s, marquees, bars, catering, celebrants, florists and photographers. But you are welcome to source your own, we just ask that they comply with our Ts & Cs and the necessary health and safety legislation.
Guests are welcome to stay the night in the Woods at Oakley. They are invited to snuggle up in our luxurious bell tents hidden amongst the trees in the Oak Grove or to relax in our stylishly renovated WW2 Nissen Hut on the edge of the woods. Wherever you spend the night we can bring you a breakfast hamper filled with delicious local produce the following morning.
The woods are available for limited weekdays and weekends between the months of May and September. Please contact us to discuss your requirements we are sure we can put something together that will be perfect for your event.
