We recently held our wedding at this wonderful location. They staff at the hotel could not have done more for us, we couldn't have asked for anymore. They worked unbelievably hard.

The room was lovely, with an amazing view over the gardens. It's a place to get away from it all. I was here for a wedding and it was a wonderfully organised event. The only downside is the drinks were a bit pricey and since you're in the middle of nowhere there's no choice but to buy them here.
