Visited this venue as there was a wedding open day. Absolutely gorgeous. Grounds are immaculate. Perfect for anyone wanting a 'country-style' wedding. So much choice and can tailor the wedding to exactly what you want.

Historically significant, this 17th century house with its 3 acre garden is bursting with inspirational planting and magnificent architectural structures. Roses are in full bloom in June. Outstanding display of Topiary.

The gardens, designed by Gertrude Jekyll, are beautiful and accessible - not so large as to be overwhelming. The Lutyens designed house is lovely to look at, as well, very covetable. All in all, it makes one think of it as the perfect little English...More
