This rustic hideaway consists of a woodland dell, an 18th-century gamekeeper's barn, canvas marquee and gently landscaped gardens for camping. All props and pretties are sourced by owner Lolly Streek, who likes each wedding to have a homespun feel and doesn't charge 'silly things like corkage'.

Lolly has local firms that can supply everything from retro caravans to beautiful bell tents. No wonder brides-to-be are falling over themselves to secure a booking.

This whimsical retreat is just the spot to throw a festival-style bash.

THE BEST WOODLAND WEDDING VENUES

There's no ceremony licence yet but you can craft your own celebration in this rustic setting (just nip to the register office beforehand). Choose between the traditional marquee and pretty pared-down barn, styling it with owner Lolly Streek's charming vintage goodies. Plus, the bar is stocked with old drinking jugs and jam jars (cocktails: sorted).
