The magnificent house, built in the 1930s, provides luxurious and comfortable accommodation for couples and their guests. The house can sleep up to 22 people and includes a wide range of amenities, including an indoor swimming pool and spa facilities. The house’s spacious and beautifully appointed rooms offer a serene and relaxing atmosphere that is perfect for getting ready for the wedding and unwinding after the celebration. In addition to the accommodation on the estate, the venue also offers seven studio apartments, located in the heart of Cambridge city centre.
We have multiple licensed ceremony spaces, including most of our outdoor spaces! There are countless outdoor locations to hold ceremonies, including under the grand temple, on the lawn, under the 100-year-old oak tree, or beside the lake. Locally there are also options for religious ceremonies of all denominations, including the picturesque St James the Great church, situated in the nearby village of Waresley.
Following your ceremony, you may wish to enjoy a glass of Champagne, canapés or perhaps a cocktail or two, on one of the perfectly manicured lawns, or within the walled garden.
After the drinks reception it's time to enjoy your wedding breakfast in your purpose-built structure. Built exclusively for you by one of our recommended suppliers, you could opt for a sperry tent, marquee, or perhaps a tipi. We have 4 main marquee sites, including lakeside and picturesque garden settings. The options are endless and completely customisable to you.
We have chosen not to provide a marquee or structure so that you can choose a style that reflects your personality and suits the needs of your wedding. We do ask that you chose a supplier from our list, as they know the site and we have worked with them previously.
Yes, we always recommend looking at spreading your celebrations over several days. Our house can accomodate a maximum of 22 and we can also offer 7 studio apartments in Cambridge city center to accomodate an extra 14.
You can also invite more of your guests to stay for the weekend and build your own bell tent village on site.
