Weddings at The Hideaway - Baxby Manor

Weddings at Baxby Manor

Your special day, at The Hideaway

When my wife and I were planning our wedding here at The Hideaway in 2013 we found that the moment you mention the ‘W’ (Wedding) word many suppliers, caterers, venues, etc double or add another ‘0’ to their quotes.

We only charge you the same cost as if the campsite was full of campers.

We take into account lost reservations that we would have had through the week and over the weekend of your wedding and also lost revenue in shop sales etc. This is carefully worked out - we don’t add any extra digits, just for the sake of being greedy!

Hire the whole site

We work on a ‘you hire the whole site’ basis, which means Rufus’s Roost and The Hideaway is all yours, with 30 camping pitches and the pre-erected Ecopods and Hobbit Houses, accommodating up to 150 guests in total. Guests have access to the luxury washroom facilities.

You hire the of the whole of The Hideaway including the site for a marquee, venue hire does not include costs for the marquee or the catering, the ceremony, etc.

These aspects are left for you to source, to make your wedding at The Hideaway personal. We do of course have suppliers that we recommend but you are by no means tied to these.

Our very own Wedding Planner

Our well known Wedding Planner Jane Nordli is on hand to offer a service to help plan your special day here at The Hideaway. Jane can also coordinate on the day, please contact her directly for her fees.

Make it memorable and sustainable

Marquees, Teepees and Yurts

The perfect addition to your special day, for the more traditional style pole tents, visit or for something really different; a couple of Giant Yurts! If you are able to supply your own marquee… that is fine too.

For guests who wish to camp or glamp:

A large proportion of the hire cost can be recuperated by asking guests who wish to camp to pay a fee direct to yourselves, say £20 per tent or £10 per person per night; many of our Brides and Grooms have done this in the past.

N.B. Most of our wedding couples ask guests to pay for their own pitches/accommodation which means that the fee you pay will obviously be a lot less.

Perfect for the bridal party

Rufus's Roost sleeps up to six people and has all the mod cons!

Nestled in the tree-tops, in woodland just a 10 minute walk from The Hideaway.

Due to the Government announcement on Monday 22nd February 2021 Rufus’s Roost will be closed until 12th April 2021. The Hideaway will be closed until at least Monday 17th May 2021. We hope to re-open on Friday 21st May.

For stays at Rufus’s Roost between April 12th and May 17th you must be ONE HOUSEHOLD ONLY.

The “rule of six” or “two households” indoors will apply to ALL reservations at The Hideaway and Rufus’s Roost from May 17th (subject to change).

NB Any bookings of more than two households will not be able to stay, please rearrange your booking ASAP.

For those who were due to stay between now and the 21st May you have two options; change the dates or receive a full refund. We would really REALLY like to be able to offer you alternative dates. Please check the availability calendars for available dates before contacting us. This not only means you have something to look forward to but it also helps us as a small family-run business. It’s been a tough year! BUT WE’RE STILL HERE and moving your booking really does help us stay here!

If alternative dates don’t work for you then we will of course issue you a full refund.

Please email if your stay with us is affected in any way.

If you are due to arrive ON OR AFTER THE 21st May our normal cancellation and amendment policies apply. Please click HERE for these.

If lockdown is extended (or there are any other updates) we will update this bulletin, please check back here first and foremost (before contacting us).

Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you to Baxby manor later this year!
