Elopements

Do you want to escape the trammels of the big wedding for a simpler woodland elopement? This is what we can do for you...Spend the night before in the manor house. Wake up to a little brunch. Pad out to a ceremony in the woods (with or without official tying of the knot). A quick glass of something if you like, with a few more of your friends before you go. Or a bit of a party into the night. Simple and sweet.  No fuss. No pressure. Just love. For up to fifty guests. Find out more….

Drop us an email, we'll show you how.

let's think 

After a pretty wild social whirl of five years at the Manor, we're taking some time now to figure out what on earth to do in 2020 and beyond. It might take us far and wide, and earth will definitely be a big part of it, as we've noticed how much people respond the loveliness of wild nature here. Help us work our how to get one closer to the other, or just keep an eye on what's being schemed and scheduled up ahead....
