The Summer House

The Summer House

Located in a secluded spot just behind the castle…

…with stunning views over the Park and a very romantic walkway lined with large London Plane trees, the Summer House provides the perfect setting for your ceremony.

It was built by Charles Gray whilst renovating the Park in the 18th Century and was constructed to replicate a Roman temple.

This structure is ideal for an outdoor ceremony followed perhaps by a reception at the Castle. This area benefits from already being in a relatively private space of the park. We also rope off some areas next to the Summer House to keep your guests contained.

This is a public area and although we do all we can to keep it contained we cannot prevent people from walking past or watching the ceremony.

Details

The Summer House is located in a secluded space towards the back of the Castle…

…on top of a small hill at the end of the footpath. There are toilets in the cafe or by the boating lake.
