Personal Message from the Manager
Name of Wedding Contact: Mrs Maureen Panchen
Minterne can promise you the day of your dreams. This stunning manor house nestles in the Cerne Valley with a lake and water features providing a stunning backdrop. Drinks on the East Terrace overlooking the lake is just one of several options; a house for all seasons, Minterne is an equally romantic setting for a winter wedding with log fires in the Drawing Room, Trafalgar Hall and Garden Room.
