I was at a wedding at this venue and the setting was beautiful but a little hard to get to as it wasnt sign posted enough when you entered the village. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the facility was well equipped for the disable with ramps and lifts. The food at the venue was extremely good and the staff were always coming round to see if you wanted a drink or if you were OK.
The gardens were beautiful with a secret walled garden where they grew all of their plants that they sell and vegetables that they use for dinner etc
Would recommend this for a wedding or a weekend get away but it is in the middle of nowhere so you would need to take this into consideration
