Ask a question
Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
They're all lovely and different! The most unusual was probably the murder mystery wedding... roving actors and a crime to solve! A great way to entertain and join people. It was all themed with ghoulish, gothic props.
What’s your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
You can't keep everyone happy all the time. Take everyone's views and advice on board but sift out what's just not for you. Relax, make lists, don't spend money on unnecessary things and remember - it's YOUR day!!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
Pet dogs coming along with rings or just for photos!
Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Unique, glamorous, private, relaxed, historic.
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
So many! We are set in a beautiful park and in our garden and around the house there are dozens of wonderful backdrops and settings.
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
Several but we are too discreet to show off about that!
What’s your favourite canapé?
The classic smoked salmon blini but perfectly made!
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
Cheese & biscuits!
What is your venue's most unique feature?
Many beautiful rooms - Library, Long Gallery, Garden room, Double Drawing Rooms, Ladies' Morning room, Games room, as well as lovely gardens set in a wonderful park. Very intimate, personal and private, whilst very easy to access from the seafront and town centre (station, etc.)
What part of your business are you most proud of?
We restored this landmark house from total dereliction five years ago and now host over 30 weddings a year. It is totally unique in the area and we have dozens of fantastic reviews and 4.9/5 stars on our nearly 50 Facebook reviews.
