A micro wedding made grand by the wonderful setting

We were married in October 2021, it was a small wedding of us and 28 family and friends. From the moment we walked in the venue and met Pam we knew it was the place for our wedding. The venue is beautiful, the outside space gave a backdrop for stunning photos and we can't praise Pam and Lisa enough. They are so helpful and wonderful and made the day even more special.

Amazing from start to finish

I cannot recommend this venue enough. The place is absolutely stunning. The couple who trun it are just amazing. They go above and beyond and are so lovely. They are also very relaxed which put me and my husband at ease. All my guests commented on how lovely the place was and how cheap the bar was! If you want a relaxed professional and beautiful venue this is your place.

Amazing Venue With Wonderful Staff

Held our daughter's wedding here at the end of July. From the moment of holding the first meeting until the actual day, Lisa and Pam could not have been more helpful. They have such enormous experience that everything is seamless. They have links to suppliers which you can use, or you are free to choose your own. We had use of the venue from the Friday until Sunday lunchtime. Really competitive rate for hiring. Stunning grounds. On the day, our guests commented on how friendly and efficient every single member of staff was. Cannot recommend this venue highly enough.
