Detailed Description

We don’t just rely on the stunning appearance and charming ambience of the house and gardens to make your wedding special. Our impressive function rooms, exquisite food and attentive friendly staff all play their part, as well as our experienced wedding planners on-hand help and advice guiding you every step of the way. Of all the aspects of planning a wedding, your choice of venue is likely to have the biggest overall impact on your day. Whilst the colour of your flowers, design of your dress and choice of music all have their own role in the celebration, nothing has more of an influence on the atmosphere of your wedding than its location. At Manor By The Lake you are free to choose exactly how and where you would like to take your vows. Be spoilt for choice with our perfectly manicured gardens, breathtaking lake or one of our lavish reception rooms. Our approach to catering for your event is totally focused on your wishes. We’ll talk through your plans for the day, and understand the style and format for the wedding. Our talented chefs will advise on styles of cuisine, and popular dishes, and can arrange tasting sessions if you require. You and your guests can celebrate into the night by enjoying one of our twelve bedrooms, which are all individually designed and exquisitely furnished. After the celebrations, newlyweds can relax in our lavishly appointed honeymoon suite, which boasts a four- poster bed, the finest fabrics and furniture, Smart TVs, private parlours and ambient lighting. The perfect end to the perfect day.
