If we could give more than 5 stars we would....
If we could give more than 5 stars we absolutely would. The grounds of high house are stunning, this is what made us fall in love with the venue just at a glance. They tell you about every little detail about getting married that newlyweds wouldn’t know. All of the staff were incredibly accommodating, nothing was an issue for them. On the day they knew how important it was for us to have our ceremony outside and they did everything within their power to make this a reality. Jessica our wedding p

Memories to cherish for a lifetime
My husband and I had the wedding day we dreamt of at High House. It was a stunning day at an equally stunning venue, and I couldn't be prouder of how it all came together. We could not have asked for more from the dedicated team, both the in-house staff at High House and the caterers were amazing and we want to thank every single person for making it so special. Myself and my loved ones have truly wonderful memories to cherish for a lifetime now.
