Venue Hire

Once the home of Ida Traill, this 19th Century cottage is set amidst extensive grounds and is perfect for weddings and receptions, photography, parties and outdoor events. The gardens will appeal throughout the seasons – they are full of blazing colours in Spring , fragrant blooms in Summer, dappled Autumn tones and sunny Winter hideaways; the setting is sure to enchant your guests.

Miss Traill’s enchanting garden is a perfect venue for your wedding or party.

We can provide silver service drinks and delicious finger food if you wish. Our adjoining paddock is also available for a larger function, it is ideal for a marquee and there is even an earth stage that is suitable for any performance.
