    We cannot put into words how absolutely besotted we were with our wedding venue. The location, the barn, the team’s service was all absolutely second to none. We wouldn't have changed a thing and honestly had the time of our lives. Right from the open day, the taster sessions all the way to the wedding day and cottage stay. It was just so wonderful. Everything lovingly thought out. Not once did we feel a burden and like our day wasn't completely unique for us! The whole team went completely over and above to make our day totally and utterly out of this world. Forever after our friends kept saying just how wonderful they thought the place was. The food, service, the owners and the planning team, all so, so wonderful.

    From the moment I arrived for my first viewing a year ago I knew it was the place I wanted to get married. I liked it so much my now Husband didn't see it before we booked. Everything was perfect, the setting, the couple’s suite and most importantly the owner Nicola and her Husband who work extremely hard to make sure the large grounds are kept immaculately. Nicola goes above and beyond for each couple. She has a keen eye for anything beautiful and I would like to take her home to design my house :). The flower arrangements and the breakfast she brings you the next morning are lovely personal touches.
