This classic English country manor is a grand but elegant wedding venue, and perfect too for any exclusive event. The manor is a popular choice, given its quintessential English country feel and location, and the grounds offer a tranquil haven from the stresses of modern life.
Set in 300 acres of beautifully kept private grounds, a tree-lined driveway leads you to the stunning rose coloured house. The property belonged to the same family for an incredible 1,000 years, and a visit to the house is like taking a tour of Britains history from the 14th Century tower to Georgian reception room. Today the grand and historic family home is the perfect venue to celebrate with friends and family, from the state rooms to the wonderful views and picturesque grounds.
Civil ceremonies can be held in the ornate Tudor Hall, with a minstrel’s gallery, often featuring beautiful fresh flowers for weddings and soft warm lighting which complements the historic wood panelling. For those who desire a church wedding there is the historic and charming 13th century church, a short walk across the lawn from the house.
The dining room is a great space for a wedding breakfast or a large celebratory meal. This room is also licenced for weddings, with wonderful views across the lawn to the Chiltern Hills beyond. The property can help arrange a bespoke menu and connect you with top end chefs who cater for exclusive events. Alternatively it makes an impressive space for a champagne reception or cocktail party.
The elegant Georgian room with a wonderful sprung floor is perfect for dancing, and is the setting for evening entertainment. The lounge with a bar offers the perfect retreat for those who want a quiet chat. A marquee can be erected for larger weddings and guests can spill out into the grounds for a sunset drink or aperitif and indulge in some croquet or a gentle evening stroll.
Whatever the season, the house looks stunning; from delicate sprinkles of snow, to clear blue skies, its presence shines through.
