Special Offers For 2018 and 2019!


**Stop Press** Houchins Venue Prices For 2019 Frozen At 2018 Prices!


2019 venue prices at Houchins have been fixed at 2018 prices. This means if you are planning your wedding any time in the next 24 months there will be NO price increases to worry about.



**The Summer 2018 Dusk ‘til Dark all-inclusive wedding package.

Save up to £1,250 off the price of your wedding.**


If you’re looking for a low-key, chilled wedding celebration that by-passes the more traditional aspects of weddings, the Houchins Dusk ‘til Dark package is for you. With Dusk til Dark the emphasis is on the party celebrations! A late afternoon ceremony, followed by a drinks reception and informal dining leads quickly on to the dancing.

With this package there’s no formal ‘wedding breakfast’ with starched table clothes and silver cutlery. In its place we offer a tasty hog roast and seasonal salads served in boxes with wooden forks and knives! Long wooden trestle-tables have replaced the round clothed tables to heighten the ‘barn dance’ feel of the wedding. 

This exciting package is available on selected dates throughout the summer. What’s included:


Drinks and refreshments are not included. Drinks are available from the bar either via a pre-paid tab or a cash bar.

Dove Barn, our sister venue, just 30 minutes from Houchins.

Dove Barn is where our wedding business started in 2002.

A charming, rustic barn just behind the historic Castlings Hall near Sudbury in South Suffolk needed restoring and we took on that challenge. Since 2002 we have held over 300 weddings at Dove Barn and it has variously been described as 'quirky', 'laid-back', 'a hidden gem of a venue' and 'full of rural calm'. If you are looking for a unique venue just off the beaten track take a look at our website:

“We have had the most wonderful weekend and the best wedding anyone could have asked for. You have bent over backwards to accommodate us and all our friends and family have continued to say how wonderful you all are. So sad it's all over but we have memories that will last a lifetime in this beautiful home. May 2017”
