Bear of Rodborough Hotel

The Bear of Rodborough near Stroud is perched neatly on top of Rodborough Common, with endless views over the surrounding Cotswold countryside and a herd of free-roaming cows for neighbours! The Bear is well-known and loved for its charming quirks - from the pair of friendly stuffed bears in Reception to the new Pavilion Garden Bar which boasts retro slushy and popcorn machines, table tennis and table football! Couples can choose from a collection of rooms and lovely marquee to host their big day at this wedding venue to remember.

Dating back to the 17th Century, this former coaching inn has endless character with original stone archways and roaring log fires, not to mention the pair of friendly stuffed bears in Reception. The hotel shares its home on Rodborough Common with some special grazing locals… a herd of free-roaming Belted Galloway cows! They are often caught peering in through the windows, so we hope you don’t mind a few extra guests at your big day…

At The Bear there are a wonderful collection of rooms from which to host your wedding day, ideal for small, intimate weddings or bigger occasions! There are also 46 cosy, country bedrooms for your guests to stay the night. Combine all of this with great food, fizz and an enthusiastic team, and you’re sure to create the big day of your dreams.
