Little Italy

Stunning venue in a perfect location with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and gorgeous quirky grounds for photo opportunities. We viewed several wedding venues and this was the best by far, within our price range. There is the added bonus of a rental cottage within the grounds, which made our day extra special. The food was outstanding and nothing was too much trouble for Gemma, the wedding planner, and her team. The outside space is great and there are floor length windows which help to bring the outside in. We weren't blessed with the weather on our day but the inside space was more than sufficient for our guests and there was plenty of room for group photos inside.

There is a premier Inn in very close proximity for any guests that wish to stay over without breaking the bank. There is also a big car park at the venue for those who want to drive.

We were so pleased we chose this venue and we couldn't have asked for more. We would highly recommend it, and we plan to celebrate our anniversary at the restaurant attached to relive the happy memories.

Can't fault Gemma and the staff at Bella vista

Gemma made everything so easy , we have never been involved in organising a wedding. Gemma was so helpful. The day went brilliantly and the food was gorgeous. I honestly couldn't have wished for more.
