The property itself is absolutely stunning and the decking/stretch tent that they have installed is an excellent area to host a reception. Penny and Kelly were so helpful and accommodating in letting us make our day unique and providing us with recommendations of suppliers in the area when we needed them. They also let us visit the property several times throughout the planning process which was incredibly helpful. Highly recommend if you are looking for an intimate affair where you can host your family and friends in a stunning setting.
