Our website will give you an insight into our entire offerings, however please find below further highlighted information regarding the unique features to make your wedding day extra special and stress free. The Lavender Meadow: The Swettenham Arms is the perfect place to book a wedding. The Lavender meadow provides the ultimate in romantic scenery and is a superb photographic opportunity. Our gazebo in the Lavender field provides the perfect choice for summer weddings and Ceremonies. To our knowledge, it is the only one of its kind with the grounds of a country Inn, so it’s no wonder that wedding bookings have been taken from as far away as Australia and New Zealand. This truly is a perfect place for a stress free wedding. Definition for uses of lavender: to relieve tension, stress, and insomnia…perfect for a Brides perfect wedding day. The Quinta Aboretum: The Quinta Aboretum & Nature reserve, accessible to the side of the Inn, has a beautiful lake, an abundance of trees and greenery, making our wedding parties rather spoilt for choice with photo opportunities-whatever the time of year! The Quinta Arboretum and Nature reserve, a lifelong project of Sir Bernard Lovell, after whom the suite is named. The Lowell Suite: Our tastefully newly decorated Lowell suite, now beautifully refurbished, is surrounded by gardens and open countryside and in the summer months the lavender and sunflower meadow is in full bloom. French doors lead to a private patio and lawned area overlooking the Lavender Meadow, which is in full bloom all summer long. The Lovell suite can comfortably hold up to 120 guest... we cant wait to welcome you to The Swettenham Arms
