Outdoor Wedding Venue New Forest

A beautiful day deserves a beautiful backdrop. Your forest wedding awaits.

Outdoor Ceremony

The Cedar Garden

Wed in nature and say I do in the fresh forest air with nothing but the faint trickle of the water fountain in the background. Choose the secluded walled garden for your ceremony, with romantic handmade oak pavilion. Accommodating up to 100 guests an outdoor ceremony is the perfect complement to your manor house wedding.

The Rooms

Individual in décor, our spacious suites offer a place of comfort and privacy that you can call your own whilst you explore our forest.

A secluded self-catering cottage and gardens for peace and privacy, with spa hotel services and facilities when you need them.

Rooms are afresh with contemporary details and country home comforts; these rooms invite you to wake up to birdsong and garden views.

Sleep in the 18th century manor house. These rooms are elegantly decorated with traditional character and homely touches.
