The most beautiful venue
Absoloutely loved our wedding venue. The barn had the beautiful rustic vibes that we were looking for and loads of space for a great ceilidh as well as meal for over 100 guests. Andrew and Caroline were so helpful throughout the planning process. The walled garden is like something out of a fairytale, absoloutely breathtaking, it felt like the secret garden! Loved getting our wedding photos taken here with all the autumn colours! All in all, a beautiful venue with such a great atmosphere and lovely outdoor space. Would highly recommend.

A Perfect Day,
My daughter and her now husband chose Backhouse Rossie Estate as their wedding venue. Both the ceremony and the reception were held here. It is an exceptionally beautiful space and a perfect size for our wedding. Caroline and Andrew were amazing and ensured that the little things weren't missed and were on hand for any questions the day before when we set up and on the day itself. The garden and woodland are beautiful and the photos outside have made an already perfect day even more beautiful.
