  • Kathryn and Pete - 09/2016

    We got married here in September and it was the most wonderful experience. The whole team were fabulous and very accommodating. It's a stunning venue and they worked with us to create an individualised, and beautiful weekend. They work very closely with the church (at the bottom of the garden!) and the caterer Caroline Gent, which makes the experience (of wedding planning) much more enjoyable and stress free!
