Intimate ceremonies of 25 guests can take place inside the Loggia or - for congregations - an unlimited number of additional guests can be seated in the Loggia's secluded lawns.

Expansive lawns set against dramatic ruins

You'll fall in love with the  idyllic setting of the Main Lawn and its dramatic ruins. The house, transformed into a Gothic mansion in the 1920s, was destroyed by fire, leaving a breathtaking collection of ruins which frames the skyline. Ivy covered stone and arched windows make this site a formidable feature of the gardens and the perfect site for a large marquee for up to 300 guests.
