My sister got married here and the sun shone. Lovely outdoor venue and plenty of paths for guests to wander round. The peacocks keep you entertained pre ceremony. The indoor area for dining and dancing was lovely and food very good.

It feels like it's in the middle of nowhere. When we went to the festival, we were sent directions for the last leg of the journey; down country lanes. That might have been to lessen the impact on people who live in the... More
