Wonderful private outdoor venue & excellent staff

We hosted our festival wedding at Moonacre and it was the best decision to choose this beautiful venue! We had so many wonderful comments on how unique our event was & everyone had a blast. Hayley & Dom were a pleasure to work with & nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend this venue if you’re looking for something a little different & love the outdoors.
