The romantic terrace, waterfall and lily pond are a wildlife haven and perfect for a celebratory toast or photographs.

And at the end of your wonderful day, curl up and enjoy a celebratory glass of bubbles with your newly wedded spouse in our sumptuous Wedding cottage. With views across the surrounding sheep pasture you will love the magic of this romantic rural setting whatever the season. Combined with a warm welcome and personal service we are confident that your wedding will exceed all expectations.

"Yesterday we were guests at Kate’s and Mike’s wedding. Your facility is a romantic vision of what a country can be. Great organisation of the property, good parking, several options of ancillary rooms, and brilliant views. This was a winter event so the outdoor space was just a view of sunlit snow dusted fields, come spring it will be even more amazing when the terraces can be used as well," Peter Horne. 3 February 2019
