General manager of The Charlecote Pheasant Hotel, Alice Davies said: “We are already lucky enough to have first class facilities at the hotel suitable for events of all shapes sizes, as well as excellent transport links to the surrounding areas. On top of this we are excited to unveil a huge, five-acre outdoor space with breath-taking views of the Warwickshire countryside, that, until now, has never been utilised to its full potential.

“We know events that fuse indoor and outdoor spaces are becoming hugely popular, so we sought out a partner who could deliver flexible, temporary outdoor event solution to meet this need, and of course, to make the most of the beautiful setting. The tipis from Katachiefs fit the bill perfectly and I am sure visitors won’t fail to be impressed.”

Rob Smith from Katachiefs, a Midlands-based company that specialises in luxury tipis for weddings and celebration events, said: “There is something truly magical about an event inside a tipi. From the rustic feel of the wooden poles, to the welcoming glow of the fire pit and the sparkling of hundreds of fairy lights – guests on the day will experience our tipis dressed at their absolute best to create a truly stunning event space.

“Whether you want to create a traditional rustic atmosphere or are seeking a bold, contemporary feel, our tipis will make your event one to be remembered. They are inter-linkable; meaning we can cater for small events with a standalone tipi or link several together for larger, more exuberant celebrations.”

The Hotel offers a choice of up to six event rooms, all with natural daylight.  A tour of the Hotel will give guests chance the opportunity to view the Hotel’s wedding and party facilities, including The Hampton Suite and Garden Pavilion, both of which are licensed for civil ceremonies.

The Charlecote Pheasant ( is situated in the pretty Warwickshire village of Charlecote, close to Stratford-Upon-Avon, just four miles from the M40 and 18 miles from Birmingham Airport. The Hotel was originally Benham’s Farm, dating back to the 16th century, and is a venue that exudes charm with its original beams, character furnishings and exposed brickwork.
