Welcome, little one!



Gather at the Farmhouse, for a christening like no other.

Widbrook Grange is a beautiful 18th century model farm hotel in the Cotswolds. It's home to rustic interiors, boutique bedrooms, an indoor heated pool, 11 acres of private gardens, a farmhouse restaurant and more than 165 gins. A perfect christening venue in Wiltshire, we are close to Holy Trinity Church, Christ Church and St James' Church, and we’re just 20 minutes' drive from Bath.

We have a selection of spaces for your special christening celebration:

  • The conservatory: a semi-private space for up to 12 guests (seated) with an adjoining log-fire lounge for a drinks reception.
  • The Kitchen Restaurant: for slightly bigger banquets, our restaurant can play host to up to 50 guests for a sit-down meal, if bedrooms are taken, too.
  • The Manvers Suite: situated in the pretty gardens, this rustic suite has space for up to 40 seated guests and up to 80 standing.
  • The gardens: we have 11 acres of farmhouse gardens. Why not deck them out with bunting and decorations for a fun garden party? Our vintage milk float can be used for a Pimm's bar and giant garden games will keep your guests entertained.

Oodles of parking is available for your guests, and we can offer special overnight rates for any who would like to stay the night.
