Why You Should Choose a Wedding Venue with On-site Accommodation

When it comes to planning a wedding, one of the most significant decisions you will make is choosing a venue. While there are plenty of options available, booking a wedding venue with accommodation has always been the most popular. 

Around 27% of couples chose to marry in a hotel in 2022 however, hotels are not often exclusive-use meaning other guests will be present. What if you’re looking for a venue that’s a little bit more special? Here, our expert wedding team talk through some benefits of booking an exclusive-use wedding venue with accommodation.

1. Convenience

One of the biggest advantages of having on-site accommodation is the convenience it offers. You won’t have to worry about arranging transportation for your guests to and from the wedding venue since everyone will be staying on-site. This is especially helpful if you’re hosting a destination wedding or if many of your guests are traveling from out of town.

Shortflatt Tower is situated in rural countryside outside of Newcastle upon Tyne, our on-site luxury self-catering cottages and rooms within the tower itself offer the perfect retreat for wedding guests.

2. Cost-Effective

Booking a wedding venue with accommodation can also be cost-effective, as many venues offer package deals that include both the event space and overnight accommodation. This can save you money compared to booking separate hotel rooms for your guests. Additionally, having everyone stay in the same place can make it easier to coordinate group activities and meals, which can also save you money in the long run.
