The Gardens offer a unique, stunning setting for
your special day and a spectacular backdrop for
your photographs. From a small intimate
service and reception to a large event - all can
be arranged to the highest standard.
The Oak Pavilion, with its elevated position
and 'aisle-like' access walkway is the perfect
place for the ceremony. There are other unusual
buildings within the Gardens, such as the
Summer House, that are also fully licensed.
Smaller intimate receptions can be catered
for in the Colonial Restaurant after 6.00p.m. (this may be flexible) until
9.30p.m. Larger receptions and/or
evening parties can be arranged on the West
Lawn - the ideal location for a marquee.
Whatever the case, guests can have exclusive
use of the 30 acre Gardens after 6.00p.m.
Please note that the Gardens are open to the
public from 10.00a.m. until 6.00p.m. and during this
