About Gilbert White & The Oates Collections
Get married in our beautiful 16th Century Hampshire Barn, set in a tranquil meadow, where large glass doors open onto the backdrop of the Hampshire South Downs.
Celebrate your special day in our idyllic setting, beneath the Selborne Hanger of the South Downs National Park. Gilbert White & The Oates Collections provides the perfect venue with a variety of informal yet distinctive spaces to hire for your ceremony, reception or party. Gilbert White’s House and the Hampshire Barn are set in thirty acres of heritage gardens and parkland. Steeped in history, the whole site retains a charm and serenity quite of its own. Enjoy your day in the 16th Century Hampshire Barn, with glorious views over tranquil meadows, or for a more intimate ceremony, the historic house – former home of famous naturalist Gilbert White. Indulge in a Champagne reception on the formal lawn – perfect too for enjoying chamber music. The Great Mead affords a charming location for a marquee reception, surrounded by meadow with views to the house and across parkland. Whichever location you prefer, the heritage setting affords unique photo memories. To complete the occasion, choose from our nominated caterers. Ranging in price and style, they each offer a high quality and personalised service, to ensure you enjoy your dream wedding.
