As you may all know by now, I get married next year and I have been searching for the perfect place everywhere. So after booking a place and then not hearing anything from them for months only for them to tell us they had booked another couple for their wedding instead, we thought it best to look elsewhere. Then we found the Oakley which is a gorgeous place located in a beautiful village and we fell in love with it.
First the address:
Kiddemore Green Road
We found the Oakley very easily considering it is in a lovely little village called Brewood which is apparently a winner of best kept village for quite a few years running. It is gorgeous and right in the country and so quiet you feel like you have gone on holiday although it is not too far away from my house. It takes about 15 minutes to get to the Oakley from a junction on the M6 so as you can imagine it is easy to get to and very accessible.
The Oakley is set back with a fantastic car park which is huge. It is a gigantic white building that looks very welcoming which is always nice. When you walk in there is a massive fish tank filled with some lovely fish and the main reception. Now for weddings there are two rooms available which is great so I will let you know a little bit about them now.
The smaller room is beautiful and quite huge which is nice and offers panoramic views over the gardens which are simply stunning. It has its own private little bar and is a short walk away from the bigger bar. It is massive anyway and can house around 100 people so more than big enough to accommodate my wedding party. I should mention at this point that both rooms can be used for other parties and private functions too so not only weddings.
The larger room is fabulous and can house up to 200 people I should imagine. It has a spectacularly large dance floor if you fancy like having a lot of people who can dance at your wedding. This room can have a door that takes you straight out onto the terrace and into the fabulous gardens which is very nice indeed.
Now the terrace area is fantastic with seats and also a large area for barbeques if you want them. The gardens are fabulous though and are set around a massive lake which is so picturesque. There is a small centre piece in the middle which is lovely and you can walk all around and across the couple of bridges they have there.
The setting is beautiful and it does take your breath away because you walk into the place not even thinking there is this massive area of garden which is so gorgeous.
They have rooms at the Oakley too so you can stay the night if needs be.
Now if you want to just visit the Oakley for food they do serve Sunday lunch for about £15 per head and it was delicious. They had a good choice of roasts and they give you a lot of food which is always good to see. The staff are very pleasant and you can sit on a table looking out onto the gardens which is lovely on a Sunday afternoon.
Hire of the rooms is at £1500 - 1700 which is very reasonable and accommodation is around the £60 per room mark and you get a breakfast with that.
In conclusion I am going to tell you the Oakley is simply stunning and if you want a party, wedding or corporate do there it is worth visiting. If you fancy like a meal with some superb views then I recommend going to.
Love it there!!!!
