Nestled in the tranquil hamlet of Bulls Green, Datchworth, Knebworth, United Kingdom, Coltsfoot Country Retreat is a charming boutique venue that exudes rustic elegance. Set against the backdrop of acres of pristine countryside, Coltsfoot is celebrated for its exclusivity, providing an ideal setting for an array of special occasions, including weddings, milestone birthdays, and commemorations. Steeped in history, Coltsfoot began its transformation in 1998, evolving from a working livery into a quaint hotel and restaurant in 2000. Originally reserved exclusively for residents, the establishment soon became a cherished dining destination for the wider public. Notably, private weddings played a pivotal role in catapulting Coltsfoot's reputation into the annals of history. The heart of Coltsfoot lies in its meticulously maintained converted barn, where timeless improvements have been implemented with care. Vaulted ceilings and exposed beams now grace the main barn, inviting the gentle embrace of natural light to illuminate the space and showcase panoramic countryside vistas. This revitalization has expanded the capacity for the wedding breakfast, comfortably accommodating up to 120 guests in the main barn. As day turns into night, Coltsfoot Country Retreat can host a total of 180 guests, creating lasting memories under the starry skies. In January 2020, a transformative renovation saw the removal of the mezzanine floor and an opening of the ceiling in the main barn. The outcome is a breathtaking atmosphere that maintains its rustic charm while offering a spacious haven for guests. Two Shepherd’s Huts have taken the place of two bedrooms, enriching the overall experience.

We had the best day ever at Coltsfoot for our wedding! It is such a beautiful venue set in the middle of the countryside and has a warm, welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. The whole team were amazing, especially Emma who helped us to plan all the details and ensured the day itself ran like clockwork. We were particularly thankful for how relaxed the team were with us setting up the day beforehand and allowing us to personalise the day to make it our own. Coltsfoot was perfect and we are very grateful to the team for everything!

Visited this venue for the first time. Our client had booked us for their evening reception party! The staff are friendly and attentive, and it's got ample parking for your guests as well. Hopefully, in the near future, we can do more events at the venue.

We had a wonderful day at Coltsfoots Country Retreat, which proved the perfect venue for our wedding last November. The venue itself is welcoming and intimate, while retaining its original rustic farmhouse charm, and benefits further from the privacy of the peaceful Hertfordshire countryside. Emma and the rest of the team were very attentive throughout both the planning process and the day itself, and were always responsive to any query or request we had, ably coordinating things with all our suppliers so we didn't have to. The food and drinks were excellent throughout the day, as were the wider amenities including guest rooms and venue grounds. We couldn't recommend the venue more - thank you for such a wonderful day!

We got married at Coltsfoot Country Retreat in October 2023. They were absolutely fantasic. The venue looked stunning and Jenny, Ruth, and Emma went above and beyond for us. No job was too much hassle. The food was fantastic and we had loads of compliments on it from the guests. The team kept us up to date with everything from the time we first showed an interest in the venue. They were very quick at answering emails and questions. We had three agenda meetings leading up to the wedding, and we were given an extensive check list to make sure we had thought about everything, which made the whole process less stressful. On the day of the wedding, they made sure everything ran smoothly and tried to keep it as stress-free as possible for us. The rooms were lovely as well and the breakfast next day was delicious! 10/10, the staff were amazing, I can't praise them enough!!! Thank you guys :)
