Unfortunately not. We have amazing Michelin trained chefs who are happy to tweak our menus or create a totally bespoke one for you

The Wedding party have access to the House from 9am on the day of the wedding, you can provide full set up instructions to our team, and they will have already set the rooms up for you. If we don’t have an event the previous day it may be possible to come in between noon & 4pm to add your finishing touches to the rooms. This is at the discretion of the management team.

The acoustics are amazing in the House so it is always a pleasure to have live music, whether it be to accompany your wedding ceremony or for your wedding party.

Due to the close proximity of the village, fireworks are only permitted if the wedding date is close to Bonfire weekend or New Year’s Eve. We hope you will understand that Chinese lanterns are not permitted under any circumstance, they present a hazard to the local farm livestock, and a fire hazard for the local environment.

Yes, both inside & out although it needs to be biodegradable please.

Yes, we love candles, as demonstrated by the number we have around the House. Common sense should be applied to candles i.e. they should be in suitable containers. Unfortunately lit candles cannot be placed on the floor, particularly down the aisle as they present a fire hazard.

We understand that your furry friend is important to you and where possible we will do our best to include them in your special day. Animals must not be left unattended and we ask that you make provision for them to be collected prior to the wedding breakfast. Animals are not permitted into the bedrooms, drawing room or dining rooms at any point during the day. Animals may not stay on-site overnight.

Yes, we have minimum catering numbers of 80 adult day guests on a Friday & Saturday & 50 adult day guests for the rest of the week. These numbers may be lowered by prior agreement at off peak times and late availability, this is at the discretion of the management team.
