The beautiful Old Parsonage is licensed for civil weddings and partnerships.


The Parsonage building is steeped in history and is the epitome of a romantic venue. Our friendly staff will be here to guide you through your bookings and arrangements. Our award-winning gardens provide a stunning backdrop, but if the weather lets you down, the antique oak interiors and original stained glass certainly won't.


The venue can also be used for parties or special celebrations. Please note we do not take bookings on Sundays because we stay open for the public to enjoy our art exhibitions.


The fabric of this listed building is fragile and we, as the guardians for future generations, are responsible for making certain that it is maintained in as good a condition as possible. Therefore we do not host parties or celebrations that mark a significant landmark in a child's life (such as birthday parties, naming ceremonies, christenings etc). We also do not host engagement or under 25 birthday parties.


We can accommodate up to 60 guests for a small informal wedding where guests may have a small reception immediately after the ceremony, with a larger gathering elsewhere for the main party where more guests can join them.

Our wedding brochure is available below:  please note the maximum number of guests is incorrect in the brochure, the maximum number is 60.
