About House

The Copse is a glorious house high in the Chiltern Hills and close to Henley-on-Thames in Oxfordshire. It is oak framed and its wood cladding has turned silver grey. Set in 22 acres, it overlooks its own pond and stream with views into the distance of mixed woodland and wildflower meadows.

It is peaceful with no passing traffic or aircraft noise which is so unusual for a property just 40 minutes from London by train and 40 minutes from Heathrow airport by car.

Guests love the privacy, space and numerous quiet corners. We love the gardens which are fabulous at every season and everyone enjoys the hot tub, huge dedicated cinema room in green plush velvet with a giant screen, and unique, cosy barbecue hut that seats everyone.

A great addition to the two kitchens that have masses of fridge space, an electric oven, microwave and 4 oven Aga, is the outdoor BBQ terrace facing the pond.

Masses of indoor space for everyone to gather to eat, either in the kitchen diner on the terrace or the more formal dining room. Better still, set the barn space for a seated dinner for up to 40 and have a wonderful catered birthday.

We can leave you alone to cook from local ingredients that can be delivered to the door or walk five minutes across the fields to the local pub. Great and truly brilliant local chefs can also come and cater for you in-house.. just ask.

Bedrooms have as many super king beds as we can fit and as many en-suite bathrooms so everyone is really comfortable and can have their own section of the house. Briefly, there are nine bedrooms and six bathrooms. Seven bedrooms are in the house and two are across the courtyard (great for teenagers!).


Please contact us for further information and wedding costs as the hire of Wedding spaces and equipment is in addition to the hire of the house and varies from £1,500 to £12,000 depending on dates and guest numbers. VAT included in these rates.

We had the most wonderful experience from start to finish at The Copse and couldn’t be happier that we had our wedding there. The entire setting from the house, courtyard, grill cabin, barn, pavilion and surrounding gardens gives this location such a uniquely relaxed, personal and intimate atmosphere. We had chosen for a Scandinavian mid-summer theme with lots of flowers and entertainment such as garden games and portrait paintings taking place at different locations around the venue which worked really well. The house was well equipped if you are planning a self-catered event as it has large ovens and a lot of fridge space. This was crucial for us as we wanted to cook most of the food for lunch and dinner ourselves together with a hired chef. The owner Penny was absolutely lovely and made our experience at The Copse feel so personal from day one. The house manager Kelly was also very supportive answering all our questions, offering advice and helped to arrange waiting staff and a babysitter. We would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a scenic countryside location for any type of celebration or event.

We are not the most organised couple but knew that we wanted at least an overnight stay and celebration when we married, but could not find anywhere remotely possible. We had been searching for three years with no luck. Then we found The Copse! Nothing to organise as it’s all there, so once guests had parked we went from ceremony with the Registrar to lots of lovely pizza served in the garden and then onto DJ and dancing. It could not have been more fun, easier or more relaxed. The guests loved it, family was in awe that we had finally married and in such spectacular style. In the end we stayed three nights and four days. Highly, highly recommended as the absolute right way to a uniquely personal, special, memorable wedding. The team at The Copse are true magicians, only there when you need them. Book it now before it’s too late as you won’t find anywhere else like it.

We loved our wedding weekend at The Copse that we chose for its location as well as the flexibility and length of time we could be there. All of our friends loved the venue too - it has that magical feel, as well as being relaxed and homely which is exactly what we were looking for. We didn't want a venue that was too formal where it felt like you were one in a chain of weddings. The Copse, certainly felt special and unique - perfect for our big day! Kelly and Penny were so helpful in answering all our questions and putting up with our visits before the wedding and then on the day, were there making sure everything ran smoothly - but did this discretely which made such a difference. We were very happy with the venue - if only we could do it all again!

I am from the UK and was marrying Tim who is from California. I wanted to marry at home so all our friends and family did not have to travel. The Copse was perfect as all the Californian family could be with us for several nights . They all had such fun, exploring glorious Henley on Thames, being there for a blessing in the local church and celebrating with us in the most magical surroundings. We loved every minute. It was spectacular, comfortable and perfect for creating the memories that will last a lifetime. The team at The Copse could not have been more helpful and the house and setting is drop dead gorgeous. We plan to return on our five year anniversary and we recommend it to everyone. Sarah and Tim
