Secret Garden Chapel – Hidden within this historic Grade-II listed building is an enchanting Garden Chapel like no other. With huge antique doors, floor to ceiling mirrors, and ancient cascading willow trees deliver a truly magical and fairy-tale experience. A wow-worth beautiful stone aisle lined with oodles of luscious romantic florals is the path you’ll take to the raised altar where you can finally declare: “I DO”.

The choice is yours when it comes to set-up, choose tastefully traditional or go daringly different with our runway aisle set-up where your nearest and dearest will all have front row seats to the ‘wedding of the year’.

Garden Suites – From banqueting to a good old knees up, cake-cutting and bouquet throwing to magical mist dancing and cocktail shaking; the Garden Suite at The Croft is where it all happens.

This unique designed botanical hideaway ensures for the ultimate indoor/outdoor feel with a wall of sliding glass opening out onto our secret garden terrace. Here you’ll find a cosy yet lovable, hidden wonderland complete with fire pits, a wow water feature and a fully retractable roof so this space can be enjoyed all year-round.

Sophisticated garden chairs and round rustic tables sat proudly under a luscious canopy of hanging wisteria, are at the heart of this botanic oasis allowing you to sit back and relax knowing you can celebrate in style
