Detailed Description

Ceremonies in small walled garden with licenced oak pagoda or in Old Dairy (up to76). Ceremony-only, daytime-only, mid-week one night or weekend weddings all catered for. Fabulous relaxed food prepared onsite - barbecues, buffets, paellas, vintage tea parties, wood-fired pizzas. Vegetarians and vegans welcomed. Great organic and fair-trade wine list. Receptions in farmyard buildings or in large double tipi. Professional and personal service but with unfussy, relaxed ambience. Lovely views, rural setting, fresh air and clear starry skies.

Family-friendly, individual, professional, romantic and eco-friendly

A few actors and musicians, but we won't say who!
