I can't recommend Tan House highly enough for character, hospitality and attention to detail. Hosts Tanya and François catered to our party's every need, and made my sister-in-law and her husband's wedding weekend extra special and memorable. The accommodation, grounds and tipi are stunning, yet homely and quirky, full of extra special touches such as complimentary fruit, pastries, toiletries and super-fluffy dressing gowns to name a few. They also provided a travel cot complete with bedding and a high chair with a cushion for my 6-month old - small but essential extras I've never found provided elsewhere. If you're looking for a unique wedding venue that's beautiful, boho, cosy and quirky, with wonderful hosts then look no further!

Utterly magical!

Utterly magical! We fell in love with the glorious Tan House from the moment we saw it and so it was an easy decision to make to hold our wedding reception there, with Tanya and François as our hosts. From start to finish, they were incredibly accommodating. Tanya was determined to make our day unique, fabulous and unforgettable – a task which she emphatically achieved with her impeccable task and attention to detail.
Our guests stayed in the garden wing and bungalow and we stayed in the gypsy wagon. All the accommodation were completely enchanting and finished to a high standard. Everyone enjoyed the hot tubs and pizza oven, as well as use of the stunning grounds and gardens.
The highlight of our reception was the use of the incredible tipi in the courtyard. Decked out with vintage glassware, Bali umbrellas, fairy lights, a fire pit, candy floss and bubble machine, large screen, speakers and disco ball, to name but a few features. It provided the unique backdrop to our pictures and meant that I didn’t have to worry about the weather on the day! The service and catering was also superb – all handmade, locally sourced ingredients and presented beautifully. Our guests (aged from 75 to 3) all loved this fantastic space and as evening set in and the hundreds of fairy lights came on, we felt like we were in our own magical world.
We cannot thank Tanya and François enough for going above and beyond to make our day so exceptional. We dreamt a little dream and they really did make it come true!
