A beautiful part of England
We are situated in the heart of the Shropshire hills, a designated Area Of Natural Outstanding Beauty. Enjoy beautiful views all around of the local rolling hills for miles around, and plenty of open countryside.
The wedding field is enclosed, private, and bordered by a lovely brook lined with trees. The backdrop of the Shropshire hills will delight your guests and inspire your wedding photographer.
The wedding field is manicured, flat with easily access, has electricity and drinking water, with ample space for several structures, and a dedicated area for camping & glamping !
The area is natural and unspoiled offering a truly relaxing experience away from any traffic noise, flights paths, railways lines or electric pylons, yet easily to find.
Be creative & Enjoy the space
How you style and decorate is entirely up to you. When you come over for your first viewing, we can give you many examples and share ideas. Why not have a chill out area, use the fire pit, use straw bales, lawn games, vintage fun fair rides, etc.. The possibilities are endless. When you hire our barn or have a tipi you will have plenty of time to decorate, and savour every moment without rushing. Enjoy camping with your friends and make it a long week end !
Ths is an experience you simply cannot get with a hotel or function room.
Fun, whatever the weather
Of course the British weather can never be 100% guaranteed. Your guests may need to consider an Umbrella or wellies if the weather is very wet. Our wedding field remains well drained in the summer, and modern quality tipis and similar structures are very well made and water tight inside. Furthermore if you can always use the barn too for a second useful space to use on the day.
