This Georgian building built in the 18th century, formally known as Garston Manor, was originally a family home, a rehabilitation centre for soldiers after WWII and later a school until it became a fabulous function venue.

In 2011, the house was featured on 'Country House Rescue' on Chanel four, where the house was restored to its original glory. With the expert knowledge of hotelier Ruth Watson, the owners of the manor were given the motivation to use the manor as a function space.

Due to previous occupants, the house boasts oriental décor and Persian inspired features.


The venue is able to host your celebrations in a variety of spaces inside and outside the magnificent manor. How about hosting your ceremony in the Blue Room or the outdoor Gazebo? Or have the wedding breakfast and reception in the Tudor Room or Banqueting Hall. The choice is completely up to you and your partner.
