The History of Bassmead Manor

Established over 700 years ago, Bassmead Manor is a historic wedding venue situated in the heart of Staploe, Cambridgeshire. Packed with British history, the Manor began as a tenant farm under the St. Neots Priory in the 13th century. Over time, it was taken over by multiple families before eventually being owned by the Squires of the Bassingbourn estate in the late 17th century, in whose honour the Manor was renamed as Bassmead. Since then, it has remained as such, standing as a proud testament to the area’s deep-rooted history.

Immaculately preserved to retain its ancient charm, the Manor boasts a number of original features including the 19th-century barn where numerous weddings are now celebrated. The surroundings, comprising romantic meadows, waterways, and a beautiful dovecote, provide the perfect backdrop for timeless events. It’s understood that the modern day wedding functions came into effect in the 21th century after the Manor was lovingly restored and renovated to provide the necessary facilities, whilst ensuring the original charm is unblemished.

Bassmead Manor is a spectacular embodiment of British history and tradition put together in one location. Its history gives it a charm that is hard to find elsewhere and elevates every wedding occasion to an unforgettable event. By continuing to be a preferred choice for couples, the Manor is not just a preserve of British history, but also a witness to new chapters being started in its very midst.
