Garden Reception & Barns

Walk through our grand 8ft entrance gates and you'll find yourselves in the garden reception area.  A great spot for both day or night.  Here you'll find a Cartlodge, which seats 100, perfect for dining under and also a rustic Woodland barn, seats 65 for dining or 100 for your ceremony and where the party happens!  

Shaded by an ancient Oak and Ash trees, the garden is always filled with the sound of laughing and chatting throughout the day.

Bring in a vintage food truck to serve your evening guests some amazing street food.

Once night falls the garden becomes a magical hidden spot filled with twinkly lighting and a firepit ready to toast those marshmallows!

Woodland Reception & Ceremony Glade

Located within the woodland you'll find our gorgeous Ceremony Glade.  Seating up to 100 guests under the dappled shade this couldn't be a more atmospheric glade to marry in.  Alongside the Glade is our little woodland Den, where the 'Legal Bit' takes place.  If you prefer a wedding blessing, then how about using the Den as a henna bar or DIY Flowercrown station or maybe seat an acoustic duo here to play during your ceremony.  Within the woodland is a woodland reception area, often used for outdoor dining, serving first drinks from or as a chill out space.

Woodland Deck

Wander through the woodland and you'll stumble across the Woodland Deck.  What a spot to serve your first drinks and canapes from.  For all those smaller weddings, how about amazing your guests and Feasting here!


Located in the garden reception is our fabulous Cartlodge, lit with Fairy lights.  A gorgeous shady open sided barn, seating up to 100, should you choose to use it for dining or chilling.  Overlooking the lawn, it's the perfect spot to take a moment out to rest your feet.   Within the Cartlodge, you'll find the cutest little bar, possibly to serve first drinks from maybe it would make the greatest ice cream parlour?
