Full Description
  • Situated on a working farm and equestrian centre, the Riverside has superb access from M27 and M3. The venue has previously hosted public music festivals can can accommodate for 499 guests with ample parking and glamping available for all. For those not wishing to glamp, the local area is brimming with excellent hotels and family run B&B's.

We have use of a secondary field for glamping at larger events but can easily scale the venue down to one field for more intimate celebrations. Th venue also hosts its own wine bar and fine dining restaurant serving locally sourced dished, fine wine and local ales and ciders.
