Venue Hire

Hawkwood is a stunning Grade II listed 19th Century country house, surrounded by 42 acres of sustainably managed woodland, farmland and gardens. Set in the heart of the Cotswolds, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the house and grounds feature breathtaking views towards the River Severn and Wales.

It is a sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. We have hosted groups from The National Trust, The Soil Association, NHS and Trinity Music Exams. Our guests praise our delicious catering, friendly staff and ethical management, all of which make Hawkwood a truly special and unique place to host a course, meeting or event.


We have implemented a Safety Protocol for our guests in order to welcome you to a secure venue following recommended government guidelines. Please see our COVID Risk Assessment. The health and wellbeing of our community are paramount.

As a charity we are continually fundraising in order to improve and upgrade our facilities. Thanks to recent grants we are now a third of the way through our project to renovate all of our accommodation. Soon our outdoor classroom will be ready as well, contact us for more details.

We encourage a warm and relaxing atmosphere at Hawkwood, created in part by our wonderful visitors and also by our fantastic staff, who go above and beyond to support you with hosting your event. If you have any special requests or requirements please get in contact and we will do our best to accommodate. Penny is our highly experienced Venue Hire Manager, you can call her on 01453 759034.
