At Dargle Forest Lodge we believe that a wedding surrounded by loved ones in a place that echoes timeless beauty is what every couple deserves. Our hands-on, dedicated staff and inspired team are available to help you create a day you’ll treasure forever.
Our glass chapel nestled among the pine trees overlooks the rolling valley below and is unlike any other venue in the Midlands. This, together with our modern barn inspired venue, offers you a picture-perfect canvas to create whatever memories you’d like. From the silky golden hues of winter grass to the fresh, luscious shades of summer greens, our venue can be enjoyed the whole year-round. Our venue can be set up for smaller intimate weddings or can accommodate up to 150 guests.
Self-catering wooden cabins for up to 20 guests, as well as additional camping options, meaning you can plan a complete destination weekend and enjoy extra time together. Additional accommodation is also available in the area to suit a range of styles of budgets.


Glass-enclosed and stilted, overlooking the rolling valley, our chapel seats 150 guests. North/East facing means you can capture the golden clouds as the sun sets in the late afternoon.

This unique Chapel with its romantic forest feel is the perfect setting for your I do’s. It has vehicle access to the front boardwalk for convenient drop-offs and is connected to the main venue by a stoned pathway. It can comfortably seat 150 people and hosts a table for the register signing. Our chapel is still under construction and will be completed by Feb 2020.
