The Little Black Book: Reception Venues

  • New Forest Escapes

    Muddy says: From family-friendly stays to chic celebration venues, the energetic women behind New Forest Escapes have gathered the very best properties in this magical pocket of Hampshire where ancient woodland meets the Solent.

  • English Sparkling Wine

    Hattingley Valley Wines

    Muddy says: Park that prosecco, we're English Sparkling Wine girls all the way. Curious? Hattingley Valley produces some of the world's finest fizz... from grapes grown on Hampshire chalk. #proud

  • Chewton Glen Hotel, The New Forest

    Muddy says: We love this super-luxe yet family-friendly hotel where tradition meets 21st century edge — a hard balance to maintain, but this New Forest institution manages it with aplomb.

  • Beautiful Bells Glamping

    Muddy says: If bunting, bonfires and barefoot dancing are your thing, then you need to know about these bell tents for weddings, hens, festivals, family glamping and muchos more.

  • Exposed brick room, dining table, chrome signage.

    The Green Man, Winchester

    Muddy says: You'll love this quirky city-centre pub with its glorious, knowing interior: part Rovers Return gorblimey boozer, part eccentric Country House, and its focus on Hampshire food.

  • White chairs, wedding ceremony, green floral decoration.

    White Space, Alresford

    Muddy says: A joyous, soaring event space. Holding The Muddy Hants Awards Drinks here for fifty people worked perfectly, although there is room for many more. The acoustics are a dream, no need for a microphone, and the clean background creates striking images.
