About Tan House Newland

This beautiful 17th-century Mediterranean style villa is guaranteed to ensure your wedding goes down in history. Located in 20 acres of private grounds on the Newland Valley Estate in the Royal Forest of Dean, Tan House Newland offers a country escape like no other. Boasting eight boutique rooms, as well as a host of stunning indoor and alfresco spaces, couples are able to let their imagination run wild when it comes to planning their wedding day. Choose to hire one, or all, of its three luxury properties, with the option to hire its five Taj bell tents in the summer if you have extra guests staying the night.  

The Garden Wing is a beautiful, newly renovated space with its own dining kitchen, private courtyard garden, wood-fired hot tub, fire pit, pizza oven and BBQ. Soak up its charming Downton Abbey vibes with a drink's reception in the surrounding gardens, featuring a fountain, ponds and elegant topiary. Follow up with a wedding breakfast held inside the spectacular stone-built barn, which can be dressed in fairylights and floral arrangements for your big day. In the evening, venture out to its luxury Tipi bell tents for dancing into the night. Facilities include hot tubs, wood-fired pizza ovens, fire pits and kamado egg barbecues, for an evening of endless entertainment.

Indeed, if there’s any additional extras you desire, from decorations to lighting and entertainment, owners Francois and Tanya are on hand to help with a trusted supplier list. With 30 years' experience creating stunning curated events, you’re sure to be in safe hands.  

Of course, one of the benefits of hiring Tan House Newland for your wedding is gaining access to gorgeous, on-site accommodation. At the end of the night, you and your guests can retreat into its boutique bedrooms, with space for up to 20 in the main house, or more in its Taj tents.

Testimonials For Tan House Newland

ExceptionalJUNE, 2024

I can't recommend Tan House highly enough for character, hospitality and attention to detail. Hosts Tanya and François catered to our party's every need, and made my sister-in-law and her husband's wedding weekend extra special and memorable. The accommodation, grounds and tipi are stunning, yet homely and quirky, full of extra special touches such as complimentary fruit, pastries, toiletries and super-fluffy dressing gowns to name a few. They also provided a travel cot complete with bedding and a high chair with a cushion for my 6-month old - small but essential extras I've never found provided elsewhere. If you're looking for a unique wedding venue that's beautiful, boho, cosy and quirky, with wonderful hosts then look no further!


Utterly magical!JUNE, 2024

Utterly magical! We fell in love with the glorious Tan House from the moment we saw it and so it was an easy decision to make to hold our wedding reception there, with Tanya and François as our hosts. From start to finish, they were incredibly accommodating. Tanya was determined to make our day unique, fabulous and unforgettable – a task which she emphatically achieved with her impeccable task and attention to detail.Our guests stayed in the garden wing and bungalow and we stayed in the gypsy wagon. All the accommodation were completely enchanting and finished to a high standard. Everyone enjoyed the hot tubs and pizza oven, as well as use of the stunning grounds and gardens.The highlight of our reception was the use of the incredible tipi in the courtyard. Decked out with vintage glassware, Bali umbrellas, fairy lights, a fire pit, candy floss and bubble machine, large screen, speakers and disco ball, to name but a few features. It provided the unique backdrop to our pictures and meant that I didn’t have to worry about the weather on the day! The service and catering was also superb – all handmade, locally sourced ingredients and presented beautifully. Our guests (aged from 75 to 3) all loved this fantastic space and as evening set in and the hundreds of fairy lights came on, we felt like we were in our own magical world.We cannot thank Tanya and François enough for going above and beyond to make our day so exceptional. We dreamt a little dream and they really did make it come true!
