Location & Contact Details
Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
My favourite wedding was held in November - the whole room, setup, décor and most importantly the atmosphere was amazing. The couple were so lovely, and I really enjoyed being a part of the build up to their big day and helping them plan the perfect wedding. They had a very rustic approach with a local live band and a few fun games along the way for their guests, one being the wheel of misfortune! The wedding was all about having fun and that they certainly did.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Take a moment to remind yourself what’s really important to you both. Many couples get swept up in the moment and get carried away and then feel disappointed when things may not be possible – be realistic and honest at the very start!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
Each guest received a handwritten note with a memory and photo tied to slate hearts - so cute!
Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Elegant, picturesque, friendly, scenic, remote.
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
By the golden gates - a very iconic spot for the hotel. Makes for beautifully traditional photos and very impressive!
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
No weddings just yet, but several have held social events or visited for an afternoon tea!
What’s your favourite canapé?
Has to be the chicken bites, with sweet chilli dip - delish!
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
We say why wait until midnight? Our evening menu is pretty tasty. In between some serious dancing and another prosecco, you can enjoy hog roast, pizza, paella, nachos... you name it and our chef can make it!
What is your venue's most unique feature?
My personal favourite is our private terrace with the picturesque views of parkland and our resident wildlife!
What part of your business are you most proud of?
I'm extremely proud of the flexibility of our team to ensure you have the perfect wedding! We make regular changes - sometimes at short notice, to suit your requirements and ideas to make sure your vision comes to life on your big day.
