Yes. There is space in our Garden Room for up to 220 guests, and there’s space for the entertainment too!

We don’t have a limiter. However, we do have a sound level monitor and we expect all DJ’s and Bands to stay below the 92 decibels level.

We do. There’s a screen and a projector at your disposal.

Yes, there is a microphone for speeches available.

Entertainment

Can we have sparklers?
Yes, you can use sparklers outside on the terrace.
Can we have a fire pit or fireworks?
We are surrounded by paddocks & horses, so unfortunately not.
What about a confetti cannon?
You’re welcome to use a confetti cannon for the first dance, however we ask that you use clear white paper only.
Are smoke machines permitted?
Due to the sensitivity of our fire alarm system, we cannot allow smoke machines of any kind in the venue.

The bar closes, and all music must cease, at midnight. An optional paid upgrade to a late 1am finish can be arranged. Please ask us.

Accommodation

What time is checkout the day after the wedding?
“All couples and guests must depart the venue absolutely by 10am latest please. We often have another wedding party arriving and so of course we need time to clean and set up for that day’s wedding.”
Can we stay the night before the wedding / hire the venue for the whole weekend?
Yes, but this is subject to an upgrade charge and subject to availability.
