Attended an evening reception in a marquee. The staff were very attentive and the venue was lovely. A nice venue for a wedding.

Been going here for years, since I was a child. All I have to say about the place is wonderful memories. Lots to amuse the kids also with fun fairs, bouncy castles etc on family days which is when we mostly go.
