Full Description
Carnell House is a spacious 15th century, country house sitting in 2000 acres of magnificent gardens and grounds. Most weddings tend to be house parties giving you a chance to spend more time with your guests. We can guide you through your plans making for fun and memorable wedding celebrations. World-renowned as a beautiful destination for unobtrusive, yet extremely comfortable, luxury hospitality. The House can be reserved for smaller weddings. The historic 10 acre garden has featured many magazines and books. The grounds provide a perfect setting for picnics, lunch parties, wedding blessings and needless to say, for photography.

This place is magic.
This place is magic. I almost don’t want to write a review because I don’t want anyone to find this gem of an estate and keep it for ourselves! Adrienne is magic. The epitome of grace, laser focused attention to detail, warm and lovely. She planned our entire wedding down to the tiniest detail and our guests are still gushing over what she created. She makes the gorgeous and expansive estate feel like a home. Mickey is phenomenal. Funny, warm, thoughtful and an absolute joy. We are thrilled to our core we were able to experience this home through him. Book it. Book it immediately! You will not be disappointed. The food, the gardens, the staff, the flowers Carnell truly is the very best place in the world.
