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

Don't be afraid to ask. Every wedding is different, and while we have great packages to suit everyone, details can always be changed. Its YOUR special day and it has to be perfect for you.

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

Recently a guest made her own table plan to look like a tree. It was a beautiful framed display which she said took months to make. A real personal touch which fully matched her whole theme.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Beautiful. Cosy. Romantic. Charming. Great food.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Personally, I love the Belvedere. At a certain point in the day, the light hits it just right. Also in the summertime the front of the building is filled with bright purple wisteria and makes a gorgeous backdrop.

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

We couldn't possibly say as we know our guests value their privacy.

What’s your favourite canapé?

Our Master Chocolatier Pastry Chef makes the most AMAZING sweet canapés, his macaroons are gorgeous. Or for a savoury option the Garlic and Thyme Focaccia with Goats Cheese is to die for!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

We are the Oldest Hotel in England, with many character filled bedrooms to match!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

The way we look after our guests.
