FAQs

Where is the reception held?
The majority of our receptions are held in a marquee in the paddock next to the patio garden. Small receptions – 20 people for a sit-down meal or up to 60 people for drinks and canapés – can be held in the house. We have a lovely dining room which is ideal for a small intimate reception. We are not, however, able to have dancing and music in the house.

Our prices are based on the hire of the venue alone.
A list of other expected costs can include registrar’s fee, marquee hire, music, catering, florists etc. and are additional, payable direct to the contractors.
