One of the proudest partnerships that Country Tipis has is that between ourselves and our most loved venues. Built upon trust, dedication, hard work and most importantly a shared love of weddings.
Every couple has a different wish-list when choosing a venue which is right for them, so we have put together some easy to digest information for you. So, if you are still looking for your perfect space… sit back, relax and let us talk to you about ‘all things venues’.
We have handpicked 7 of our top venues, each one offering something different and have varied options of suppliers and packages. Beaumont Hall, Brook Farm, Lattenbury Hill, Lodge Farm, Mill farm, Tip Top Venues and our very own Vanstone Park.

Based in St Albans and offering a number of different locations and packages to cater for everyone. Vickie is the heart and soul of the venue, building personal relationships with each of their couples and truly understanding that every wedding is deemed to be different.
Beaumont Hall’s second site ‘The Paddocks’ sits adjacent to a secret garden, you walk mesmerising through the forestry to enter a woodland dream, like something out of a film. ‘The bar’ is perfect for smaller intimate weddings and honestly it couldn’t be any prettier.
Beaumont Hall have recently had planning permission granted to start the process of building on site accommodation overlooking the main field, Right now, we can only imagine how amazing this is going to be but it doesn’t look like we are going to have to wait very long with Beaumont hoping for the works to be complete by the summer of 2022.
Brook Farm – Cuffley
