Full Description
We offer the perfect setting for your special day. The hotel overlooks the scenic Axe Valley, offering the perfect backdrop for your wedding photographs with its idyllic gardens and grounds. The panoramic views, award winning food, excellent wines and attentive service all combine to make a day you will remember forever. Every couple has their own ideas and thoughts for their special day and we are here to help you achieve these. Whether you want an intimate Wedding breakfast or a large reception we can offer various options to suit every budget. Whether you want a buffet or a formal meal the produce will be of the highest quality and locally sourced where possible. You can choose from a buffet to a six course meal with catering for up to 60 seated and for larger parties we supply a marquee in the wonderful grounds. We have 3 different rooms types each having it's own distinct character. Inside the main Edwardian house we have four large rooms with traditional furnishings and luxury bathrooms (some with Jacuzzi baths). There are eight completely refurbished rooms in the East Wing, all with views over the grounds. If peace and quiet is what you are looking for then our Garden Wing is ideal. All of our 16 bedrooms have Egyptian sheets & duvets and soft white cotton towels, as well as a flat screen TV & radio, telephone, hairdryer and a range of tea/coffees. We look forward to your enquiry.
