Ryan and Lucy Wedding July 2023

We could not reccommend Moon Down and Lisa/Charlie enough! A blank canvas of open field and woodland that we used to create our own festival style wedding, it could not have been better. The location is perfect as is set away from any main roads so there is no noise pollution or passers by. The site has power and running water to facilitate any catering and entertainment needs. The large field was ideal for our Tipi Marquee and glamping bell tents. The woodlnd area was idyllic for the ceremony. Our wedding could not have been improved and that is testament to what a great place Moon Down is. Charlie and Lisa are extremely welcoming and could not have been more accommodating, any issues or questions they have answers and solutions for them all. If you are thinking of planning an outdoor event, Moon Down is the ideal place.

Perfect English Country Garden Wedding...

Moon Down offered us a relaxed, romantic, rural wedding, where our reception just felt like a dream! I had a particular vision of having an English Country Garden style wedding and Moon Down offered us the canvas to create what we wanted and that was really important me. As a venue, it wasn't restricted or prescriptive, it offered us freedom and flexibility, which enabled us to make the whole day really personal to us. Lisa was amazing throughout the whole planning process and on the day, we couldn't have asked for better.

Aside from the space and feel of the place, the practical side of Moon Down is on point too - great parking, good facilities and the opportunity to bring in fantastic local suppliers which made our day so bespoke to us.
Just wish I could do it all again!

AMAZING venue! The dream bohemian wedding

We got married at Moon Down in September 2019, it was the most incredible day and the venue is just perfect for anyone looking for something bohemian/festival style or more laid back. Couldn’t recommend Lisa enough, everything ran so smoothly :)

Beautiful location, responsive and flexible owners

We struck gold with this place: they were incredibly responsive, allowing us to view the field multiple times and talking to our contractors when we needed. The field was absolutely beautiful on the day (lucky with the weather!), and they allowed us to set up days ahead. They were helpful and flexible throughout, offering their experience from previous weddings and also some equipment that had been left!
