The History of Mickleton Hills Farm
Established in the heart of England, nestled in the idyllic Gloucestershire countryside, lies the historical wedding venue, Mickleton Hills Farm. The farm, entrenched with English charm and elegance, dates back to the Jacobean era, a factor making it an exquisite place to exchange vows. The history of Mickleton Hills Farm is rich and layered, illustrating the evolution of hospitality and event hosting over centuries. Initially, it operated as a traditional arable and livestock farming site, contributing significantly to Gloucestershire’s agrarian industry. Over time, it evolved into an eminent social space renowned for hosting celebrations and gatherings, including weddings. The privilege to first host weddings came in the 20th century, making it a specialty of the estate. One of the unique features that underlines its historical significance is the Barn, which was transformed from a livestock shelter into a luxurious reception setting. What has remained constant over the centuries is the warm reception guests at the farm have always received, which underpins its current reputation as a sought-after wedding venue. Today, Mickleton Hills Farm paints a picture of a beautifully conserved piece of the past, harmoniously fusing the old and new to offer an unforgettable experience.
