The perfect space

With a selection of venues from grand and formal to small and intimate, all situated in an inspiring and beautiful setting,­ we have the perfect space for your wedding ceremony and reception.

Our special gardens and buildings have been skilfully restored back to their former glory over the last 20 years and the beautiful scenery is tended by a team of skilled gardeners all year round, providing the perfect backdrop for the wedding you’ve been dreaming of.

The Orangery

The perfect light-filled venue for your ceremony, this beautiful, iconic hamstone building, designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, offers unrivalled views across the famous gardens and beyond to the Blackdown Hills.
