Discover our quirky, boutique wedding venue

Congratulations on your engagement! We can show you gorgeous pictures of our lovely venue, but the best way to discover it is to see it for yourself, and to start to imagine how your special day would feel here.

We host wedding open days throughout the year. These showcase a selection of trusted wedding suppliers to help with your planning, and invite you to see the hotel and gardens dressed for a wedding. Alternatively, you are invited to arrange a meeting with our dedicated wedding coordinator where you can spend as much time as you need, as a couple exploring the hotel and discussing options.

For details about our next wedding open day, or to book a meeting, please email or call 01189 842244.
