Set in the midst of beautiful, leafy Hampshire The Potters Heron Hotel, with its picturesque thatched roof, quirky corners and light, spacious rooms is the ideal venue for a special wedding. The Potters Heron has been privately owned since 2007 and carefully refurbished and improved since then. The hotel holds a Civil Marriage Licence and is able to host both civil ceremonies and wedding receptions for up to 100 guests.

Our three wedding suites - The Garden Room, The Coppice and The Ampfield - are all close to the heart of the building and each provide a light and welcoming ambiance for your reception. There are garden terraces outside the Garden Room and the Ampfield. Our two smaller rooms, Hursley and Barishfield, are perfect for a more intimate celebration. Over the years we have built our own list of tried and trusted wedding specialists - florists, cake makers, chair cover suppliers, entertainers and more - and would be please to recommend them to you.

When you book your wedding at The Potters Heron Hotel we are delighted to include a beautiful room for the bride and groom on the night of your wedding with our compliments.

The hotel has plenty of room for guests travelling from afar for the celebrations. We have 53 bedrooms and are please to offer a special rate for your guests.

Many of our bedrooms have a small terrace or balcony overlooking the gardens. The beds are very comfortable with crisp, cotton sheets and plump pillows.

Our brochure illustrates the menus and drinks choices we can offer, indicates the number of guest we can accommodate and describes the wedding suites in detail. Every wedding celebration is a very personal choice and we enjoy helping you decide whats right for your day and tailoring the occasion to your special requirements. Download are brochure at

"Initially we chose the Hotel as our wedding reception venue, we were due to get married at a local church, due to a unexpected death in our family, I felt I could no longer get married in his village church. Therefore we approached the Hotel and they could not have been more compassionate and helpful. ...."

Donna, Married in July 2010


"That was it our date was set and preparations underway. It couldn't have been easier and nothing was too much trouble. we had our heart set on a ploughman's style buffet for our reception and they agreed that it could be done. ...."

Donna, Married in July 2010


"The day arrived and our suppliers for the centre pieces, balloon's etc were welcome, and I had nothing to worry about at all, it was all taken care off and the whole day went without a hitch, well except I was late to my own wedding, but that's a brides right of passage surely. ...."

Donna, Married in July 2010


"The Hotel looked beautiful and the rooms looked better than I could have imagined. the transition from one room to another was smooth and all done in the space of us having our photos done. The wedding Breakfast was fabulous and all my family and friends were catered for with all their needs. ...."

Donna, Married in July 2010


"The change over from day to evening was super quick and I had a blast, not that I can remember much of it as the whole day was a blur, one piece of advice I would offer any bride and groom is to stop and breath, take it in. the evening buffet was exceptional, and we had extras that the chef had decided on and was the talk of our friends and family for ages as it was different. ...."

Donna, Married in July 2010


"All in all it definitely was a day to remember and I could have asked for a better service than I received from The Potters Heron. the day was truly magical and I thank you for making it so. ...."
