Crumplebury set for recovery following COVID-19 disruption

Exterior of Crumplebury A picturesque Herefordshire wedding and events business is expecting to bounce back once government restrictions on large gatherings are lifted, after support from The Agricultural Mortgage Corporation (AMC).

Crumplebury, a purpose-built, state-of-the-art events venue and hotel, has seen its entire spring/summer wedding schedule disrupted due to COVID-19. The £3million development backed by AMC is set in the grounds of the 1,500-acre Whitbourne Estate near Worcester and had secured more than £1million in wedding and corporate bookings for 2020, with the majority now set to take place in 2021.

Crumplebury and Green Cow Kitchens are recent additions to the Whitbourne Estate, which has been privately owned by the Evans family since 1860. At its core it remains a traditional estate with farming, forestry and property, but in recent years the current generation of the family has diversified its operations into leisure and hospitality.

Joe Evans, managing director and founder of Crumplebury and Green Cow Kitchens, said: “The idea behind Crumplebury has always been to share the beauty of Whitbourne while developing a business that will provide sustainable income to reinvest in the estate. In our first year, we expected to reap significant rewards of the investment, with couples and businesses seeing it as an ideal place to experience nature and modern luxury together. In hindsight, we couldn’t have picked a more unfortunate time to launch. However, our family has worked with AMC for many years and the team were on hand immediately to find a positive solution. The fact that we have been able to move so many bookings to next year means we’re in a really good position to bounce back quickly.”
