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.
