The Garden

Picturesque • Serene • Perfect

Surrounding the house, the grounds and gardens cover 7 acres, perfectly combining a piece of the natural Cheshire landscape with the charming structures and cultivations expected of a luxury country hotel. This picturesque setting includes beautiful trees, vast lawns, topiary, a gorgeous lake and more. It’s a true celebration of British heritage, the perfect embodiment of an outdoor country wedding.

Free roam of the grounds are of course available to you and your guests prior to and following the service, but if you’re planning on a summer wedding, it plays the perfect host to the wedding service itself. Our timber gazebo wonderfully compliments the architecture of the main house and provides shade and respite for the bride and groom.

In terms of capacity, we can accommodate up to 160 guests, and from the decorative archways to the flower arrangements and ornaments, we’re here to ensure every detail is perfect and matches your vision.


The Dunkerley

Contemporary • Versatile • Adaptable

The recently refurbished Dunkerley is a contemporary room which can hold up to 100 guests. It is an extremely practical and versatile space, which grants access to the patio, resting alongside our lake. As well as being a great setting for exchanging your vows, the room typically plays host to unforgettable wedding receptions, with groomsmen, bridesmaids and other guests, frequently seen tearing up the dance floor!

The Conservatory

The Conservatory is an incredibly popular area for marriage ceremonies due to its spaciousness, backdrop which welcomes natural light, and the charming and dreamy aesthetic which resembles a wedding marquee. Ideal all year round, the Conservatory has all of the practicality associated with being part of the main building. For the bride, groom and guests alike, this space perfectly blends style and sentiment, providing a truly unforgettable experience.

Being smaller than some of our other spaces, it is ideal for intimate wedding ceremonies, trading spaciousness for sophistication. The room provides idyllic views of the picturesque gardens and lake.
