Romantic, Memorable

&  Relaxed


The Matara Centre is a unique Cotswold wedding and events venue in Gloucestershire dedicated to the wellbeing of people and place. We continually create a unique, relaxed and joyful venue that allows you to celebrate all of life's moments your way.

“Through our work together, we open up the possibility of being able to live in a state of harmony and balance and to conduct ourselves in loving caring ways. This provides the foundation for partnerships and collaborations within our relationships at home, at work and our communities. This for us is wellbeing, the full expression of the human Spirit, and a deeper connection with nature”

Geoffrey, Matara's founder

Matara is a beautiful place that is a celebration of the worlds multi cultures and is filled with intrigues around each corner.

The Matara Centre is steeped in the tradition of the unexpected in the Cotswolds. It is a truly unique Gloucestershire wedding & events venue set in 28 acres of strolling grounds, offering a relaxed and joyful setting for every occasion. Our Asian inspired, exclusive use venue is licenced to host indoor and outdoor wedding ceremonies.  Complimented by the Grade II listed Regency home, Matara is intimate enough for 25 guests and grand enough to comfortably host up to 200 guests.

Gardens & Parklands


As caretakers of the land we have allocated half of the 28 acres to natural habitat, protecting and encouraging diverse wildlife. Those 14 acres now have a life of their own, continually increasing in richness and natural diversity. You will find woodlands, wetlands, flower meadows and hedgerows. Come, enjoy the tranquility and beauty. Take time, relax and reconnect with the natural world.

"We knew from the minute we first visited that it was the perfect place to celebrate our special day and absolutely loved the amazing sense of peace that seems so apparent the moment you set foot on the lovely grounds! The gorgeous gardens, the fabulous staff, the inspiring eclectic spaces and the delicious food are just a few of the things we loved!"
