We had the most amazing wedding day and they catered to everything we wanted. Would recommend to anyone to have their wedding at the most fabulous venue 😍.

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We celebrate the weddings of all of the couples that come to us to celebrate their special day, we love to see the personal touches and something that's a little bit different!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Once you start to plan your wedding, you'll get tips and advice from almost everyone you know. Just remember that it's your wedding not theirs, so if you want something slightly different then go for it. They'll be the little bits that you remember!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

A musician friend of mine got married not long ago, and for the first dance there was a kazoo for all of the guests so that we could all join in on the first dance! It was definitely a mixed bag of results with the tuning, but it was so much fun!!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Beautiful, fun, caring, different, adaptable

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

We have a couple of stunning spots for a photo, but my favourite has to be outside of our listed grain store, it's different but looks amazing!

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Not recently, but with the history of the house, i'm sure there have been some spectacular weddings held here!

What’s your favourite canapé?

That's a difficult one (I love food!) but it would probably have to be a mini yorkshire with beef, horseradish and a little bit of gravy!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Chocolate!! (or a bacon roll)

What is your venue's most unique feature?

I love the Grain Store, we've got a few lovely spots and period pieces but that was the bit that caught my eye the first time I wondered round!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

From the short time that i've been here, I think the team has to be the best bit. It's like all the good parts of working with Family and none of the bad. The care and attention to service is like nowhere i've ever worked before!
