We are not licensed to hold civil wedding ceremonies but we have hosted the odd large celebration at Graig Wen on an exclusive hire basis. We limit them to a couple a year so as not to impact too much on the beautiful natural environment and local community. It is not possible to book exclusive use of the whole Graig Wen site during bank holidays or school holidays.
We can help with contacts for catering and other suppliers – we don’t have a large structure or marquee but there is room to pitch smallish marquees. We also link up with an excellent local restuarant which is licensed to hold civil ceremonies and can provide a wonderful feast and party space. Some couples choose to hold their special day at a local licensed restaurant and book Graig Wen as accommodation for a lovely relaxed long weekend catching up with family and friends which works really well.
We can provide beds for at least 44 people – more if there’s a few kiddies who don’t mind camp beds – plus pitches for up to 17 tents and the odd camper van. We have an accessible room and are pet friendly. If you need more bed space we can provide contacts for other local hotel and B & B accommodation.
We can accommodate guests as follows: 3 self-catering properties -14 /11 people plus more room for travel cots etc 5 rooms B & B – 10 people Yurts and Shepherd’s Hut – 19 people Camping – 20ish pitches for around 80 people depending on time of year and vehicle numbers. Exclusive camping field hire is also available. Every group is different so please contact us to discuss how we can make your celebration special for you.
You can see more pictures of large group events on Graig Wen’s Facebook page (go to photos and albums) and here’s a link to photographs of a wedding celebration weekend based here at Graig Wen. You can read about a few of our wedding celebrations on our blog.
Costs – We provide you with a clear breakdown of costs for the accommodation so you can pass that on to your guests if you wish. We have an alcohol licence but you are welcome to bring your own drinks and we don’t charge for corkage. We can also provide a large barrel BBQ and charcoal plus wood for a camp fire.
Happy couples and families
“Graig Wen was the perfect wedding venue, all our guests were bowled over by the views and the attention to detail and design. The accommodation was faultless and together with the camp site provided ample space for family and friends. Sarah, John and the team worked hard before and during the weekend to make sure things went smoothly and went out of their way to make it feel extra special. It was a wonderful weekend that we will never forget, thank you all so much!” Dan and Jo, Arthog “I can certainly speak on behalf of the whole group: 24 people from 6 months to 90 years old, staying in the 4 cottages as well as the B & B. We have had a great time and enjoyed every moment, both outdoor and inside. Thankyou to the whole of Graig Wen for making our wedding week so special. We still have a lot to see and I am looking forward to our next visit” Chiara and Jorge (Italy and Miami!) “What a fantastic holiday we have had. Caban has been lovely and cosy and our family had the two yurts as well. How great the “big one” has been to all get together in. Hope to come back soon!” The Ward family, June 2012 “This place has been so perfect for our wedding accomodation in every way and has exceeded all of mine and my new wife’s expectations words do not really do justice. We will be returning soon to stay in one of their yurts in the woodland grounds of the Graig Wen along with many of our wedding party who were all blown away with this place. Thank you to Sarah, John and Matt (along with all the behind the scene staff) for making our wedding weekend so special with your attentive service and your exquisite accommodation, look forward to seeing you soon.” Mike and Caroline, September 2012
