About Thorpe Garden

Thorpe Constantine, Tamworth
Staffordshire, B79 0LH

Thorpe Garden is Set within 3,000 acres of private estate, nestled in the heart of the Staffordshire countryside.

Concealed within the estate is a two-acre walled garden, which has a rich history. Once cultivated to grow produce for the estate (owned by the Inge Family since 1631); in the 80s it became an organic garden, selling its wares to London restaurants. It has now been restored to its former glory, abundant in flowers and trees.

The Ceremony Room is a striking new addition to the garden, designed by RIBA award winning architect Seth Stein. The building features a large sloping roof which floats over the listed victorian wall, with glass doors opening onto a large terrace and the garden beyond. It is scheduled for completion early 2019.

The hand-crafted, one of a kind yurt boasts steamed mountain ash supports, solid oak doors and large windows which frame beautiful views of the walled garden. Fairy lights, flowers and festoons create the atmosphere for an intimate dinner and drinks. After dinner, this room is transformed into a spectacular dance floor. 

We pride ourselves on our feasts and use the finest produce. A team of highly qualified chefs cook fresh, quality ingredients on our tailor-made grilland rotisseries. We present simple, memorable dishes from canapés to whole barbecued lamb, our signature beef sirloin bricks and smoky chargrilled vegetables. We work with you to design a menu to please you and your guests.

The original gardener’s bothy cottage has also been sympathetically restored, and can be used as the Bride’s Room.

A perfect day that exceeded all our expectations

Myself and my partner had seen Thorpe by chance before it officially opened (the previous owners before Cripps took over, had done a wedding there back in 2017 and we saw the pics on Facebook). The venue was then taken over by Cripps and bookings were not being taken until July 2019 as they had big plans for a new ceremony building and were completely refurbishing the yurt. However, as we had already booked in with the previous company for May 2019, Cripps honoured our booking, despite the fact it put them under huge pressure to get the venue built and finished for a wedding 2 months prior to what they had planned. From our first meeting with Cripps, we were made to feel really special, and nothing was ever too much trouble for them, even considering the special and unique circumstance we were all in, planning a wedding in an unfinished building. Special mention here to Tom and Jennie who were our contacts- they were so reassuring, patient and in constant contact with us so we never felt worried. The first time we saw the venue completely finished was 2 days before the wedding, and it blew us away. The team at Thorpe had worked so hard to get everything finished and it was truely stunning. They should be so proud of themselves. On the day of the wedding, everything was perfect and ran so smoothly. The food was the best wedding food we have ever had, the concept of sharing platters down the table went down a treat and encouraged guests to chat a lot more. People have not stopped talking about the food!! The yurt looked beautiful, and the sun even came out to play. We honestly could not have asked for any more!

We booked this venue from drawings and a plot of land 2 years ago, so a bit of a wild card, we didn’t know how it was going to turn out but we were not disappointed. Tom and his team pulled out all the stops, making everything run smoothly, if anything went wrong or not to plan we would never of know. We were the first wedding at this venue for Cripps and it was faultless. Couldn’t of asked for anymore from the team. EVERYBODY commented on how amazing the food and venue were. We were blown away when we saw the venue all ready. Would do it all again tomorrow if we could. Friendly and professional staff throughout the day. Cripps certainly know how to do weddings and Thorpe Gardens doesn’t disappoint. You have to see the yurts to fully appreciate how amazing they are. Thanks again guys.
