Friendly & welcoming
After visiting Swan Tipis at one of their open days in September 2020 we knew straight away that this was the right venue for our wedding.Sent on 08/02/2021
The space and atmosphere in the Tipis is something really special, and felt magical. We were shown how flexible the layouts and decorating can be so our day will be very special and personal.
The Tipis are set up in the large garden behind the Swan inn, with lovely views over countryside. The food we sampled from the Chef's at the Swan Inn was absolutely delicious!
We are so excited about celebrating our wedding in these beautiful Tipis this summer.
