One of the great things about this venue is the lovely, welcoming hosts.  They provide the expertise and will be delighted to work with you to create your dream day at this enchanting venue.  You can choose from a variety of different locations for your ceremony and reception - from riverside ruins, wildflower meadow, romantic woodland, cocktails by the pool, garden party on the lawn or a good old knees up in the barn.  And with no close neighbours, you can party the night away to your heart's content!


You will have exclusive use of the property and if you have more than 20 guests, your hosts would be pleased to help arrange additional accommodation nearby and transport for the wedding itself.
