Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review

PRIME July and August 2024 dates available—call for a special offer on these days!

  • Intimate, meaningful gatherings thrive at this stunning spot. Yours is the only event of the day (no wedding factory here!) and the whole estate is exclusively yours, from prep in the cozy, poolside Bridal Cottage to a farewell toast under a vine-wrapped arbor, ensuring you’ll have plenty of time and space to soak in each magical moment.
  • The 10 acres of gorgeous botanical gardens (including rose, woodland and Japanese-style), verdant lawns, and a large sparkling lake are yours to explore; the venue’s focus on smaller gatherings ensures your nearest and dearest can truly enjoy all the beauty the estate has to offer—without a hefty price tag.
  • The operating model railway makes a unique spot for a cocktails & hors d’oeuvres reception, and a charming photo op for you and your wedding party. There’s even an option to add the ride-on train for kids aged seven and under to take a spin!



Mention Here Comes The Guide at your time of booking and use of the Bridal Cottage ($500 value) will be included for FREE!
