Our Mulberry Suite has two exquisite chandeliers and exposed beams whereas our Marquee has floor to ceiling white drapes with a private decking terrace. We also have the ideal drinks reception venue located overlooking our grounds and lake; perfect for group shots with your friends and family! We also have 22 bedrooms onsite so your guests can truly relax and enjoy the occasion at their convenience, then spend the following morning with close friends and family before heading off.

Whilst we have subtly converted the venue into a beautiful hotel and venue with accommodation, we have kept in mind the fantastic history of the building, which offers a combination of traditional Georgian architecture with modern 21st-century additions offering the flexibility and standard you require.

Alongside the Mulberry Lake, which was once a moat around the House, there has been careful tree planting which enhances the grounds making it an ideal backdrop for your Wedding.  Some of the original trees are over 150 years old!

At Mulberry House, we believe that your wedding day should be faultless so we provide only the finest wedding coordinators to help facilitate your day and ensure everything flows smoothly. You can tailor your reception exactly how you'd like it. 

Our Catering Team are renowned for their quality cuisine and this together with a choice of bedrooms to suit every size of wedding party will make your day very special.  All of our bedrooms have recently undergone refurbishment providing en-suite facilities and if your event includes an evening reception Tresco, our Honeymoon Suite, is available for the Bride and Groom to use complimentary on your Wedding night. Along with this, a Bridal changing suite is available for the party on the morning of the wedding.

We can tailor the perfect package to your specific requirements and would love to give you the opportunity to come up and see this beautiful venue in person.  You can then meet with our coordinators and discuss your Wedding ideas in more detail.
