Dating back to as early as the start of the 12th century, the Tracey Estate can give couples a truly unique wedding experience - a day where you and your wedding party can overlook some of the prettiest views this country has to offer, soak up the rich history, and celebrate your marriage in the exclusive company of your nearest and dearest.

Enjoy exclusive use of the rolling grassland, whilst safe in the knowledge that Tracey Estate can present you with the most stunning backdrop for your wedding ceremony, plus a great reception venue with a variety of catering options, and as the evening celebrations draw to a close, virtually unlimited camping or glamping accommodation.


Tracey Estate dates back to the 12th century where the first residence was built by Sir William de Tracy. Over the centuries the estate grew in size, but eventually its fortunes declined and it fell into disrepair. In 2003, the building which stood upon the grounds was demolished as it had by that time become alarmingly unstable and dangerous.

However, in 2011 a restoration project was undertaken with the aim of recovering and re-establishing the gardens and grounds, and after a considerable amount of hard work, they have now truly been returned to their former glory.



For your ceremony, Tracey Estate can present you with a venue like no other. Stroll from the terrace vista down to the Sunken Garden, with your friends and family gathered round, as you recite your vows and exchange rings under the ornate hexagonal pavilion, with the newly restored 12 foot fountain playing in the background.


For your reception, you'll be provided with a marquee situated in the heart of the grounds. With extras ranging from a dancefloor, stage, electrics, PA system, catering tent, and a variety of decorations to choose from, your event will be unique to you. You get full use of the garden grounds for three days to ensure an unhurried, stress-free set-up.

The wedding package allows for 120 guests. For an additional fee, this can be increased to 160 guests (no charge for additional evening guests).


Tracey Estate can provide camping accommodation on the grounds in the Yew Circle. Looking for a bit more luxury? Choose one of three glamping options in the form of vintage-looking bell-tents, ranging from 2-6 people in capacity.

On request, Tracey Estate can also provide a shortlist of preferred hotels, guesthouses and B&Bs in the local area.

  • Liz and Dave - May 2019

    Once again please accept our heartfelt thanks for all your time, hard work, support, and generosity in helping us with our wedding. From the moment we set eyes on Tracey last September we fell in love with the venue and knew it would be perfect for our wedding. More than this though, was meeting you all and seeing what lovely people you all are, which was the most important thing for us.

    You gave us exactly the wedding we wanted and we can honestly say it was undoubtedly the best day of our lives. The grounds looked immaculate, and we loved the touches of the new seating area and the spectacular fountain. It was all wonderful.

    We must also thank you for allowing us the preparation time and providing your assistance in helping us to fulfil our vision with the marquee. We thought it looked stunning, particularly when finished off with Tara’s flowers.

  • Sarah and Mitch - September 2018

    What we liked most about Tracey as our wedding venue was; it’s hard to pinpoint one area. We completely fell in love with Tracey Estate on our first viewing back in May 2017. Tracey estate offered us the freedom to have our wedding day the way we wanted. Tracey Estate allowed us to create a beautiful and relaxed wedding day. The venue is simply beautiful, getting married in the sunken garden was breathtaking, and our guests were truly in awe of the beautiful venue.

  • Ellie and Nick - August 2018

    Thank you so much for everything before and on the day. We absolutely loved working with you guys and would definitely recommend Tracey Estate to others. Everyone has said what a beautiful venue it is and how fab you guys were!

  • Kirsten and Dominic - July 2018

    What can I say, how to sum up our wedding weekend in a few words! It was just PERFECT! We can’t thank you enough for the hard work, patience and kindness you showed us throughout the whole process and over the weekend. You are all so lovely, approachable and nothing was too much trouble! Every single guest was amazed at the venue, how beautiful and well-kept it was. The ceremony was stunning and the grounds meant we hardly needed to do anything to bring out the estate’s beauty. We are still beaming from ear to ear! Howard and Ed were fantastic throughout the whole weekend and the run up to it, so please thank them for us. You are such a wonderful family and we will be eternally grateful to you for making our wedding one that we will remember forever.

    We can't thank you enough for all you did last weekend. We have had endless comments on how utterly beautiful the venue was. We couldn't have imagined a more perfect day for us.

  • Hayley-Rose and Tom - June 2017

    We weren't restricted and could really make it ‘our wedding’ not just a wedding. As soon as we drove up to Tracey Estate and saw the amazing view, we knew it was where we wanted to get married. In addition to this, we loved the friendly welcome, the flexibility and the fact that we weren't restricted and could really make it ‘our wedding’ not just a wedding. After seeing the beautiful sunken garden, we really couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else.

    We loved the fact that it was family run and not corporate. The guys were all informal yet professional and did everything they could to make our day run smoothly and how we'd imagined. When we were let down by our caterers running the bar - they stepped straight in and did an amazing job. They really couldn't do enough to make our day perfect - magical and love-filled.
