About Us



'Tis love that makes the world go round
Our approach to creating your dream wedding experience is to stray away from the ‘norm’. We offer both one and three-day wedding options, where we give you complete freedom to enjoy our venue and surrounding space.

Our three-day wedding experience provides you with an extended wedding celebration, giving you and your guests the option to stay in our on-site cottage accommodation for two nights, plus a full culinary experience which includes afternoon tea, breakfast and evening meals (over and above your wedding day menu).

Our one-day wedding experience gives you a more traditional choice of celebrating your wedding in a single day, for which you have the option to stay in our on-site cottage accommodation for one night.




Locally sourced fresh ingredients
Impress your guests with delicious dining prepared by our talented chefs.

Our menus have been lovingly crafted to offer you a dining experience like no other. Showcasing the very best in British seasonal produce, we pride ourselves on offering the finest, local produce.
