Summer Marquee

Standing in the southern quadrant of the walled garden is the summer marquee.

It goes up around Easter and comes down in late October.

A traditional pole marquee of around 60ft x 40ft with an additional catering marquee at the back makes it ideal for all kinds of summer parties and of course wedding receptions.

Flanked by its own herbaceous borders that in the height of summer give a magnificent floral view, the marquee also benefits from open lawns to three sides so that guests may choose to seat inside or outside as the weather allows.

Fully equipped and with a well-stocked ‘Country Pub’ priced bar make it a popular destination for summer celebrations, anniversaries and a lovely setting for a funeral reception. It can comfortably seat 150 guests with the dancefloor in situ or up to 180-200 in a less formal layout.

It is often used by group visitors such as Garden Guilds and coach parties who visit for a guided garden tour and then take Afternoon Tea or supper afterwards in the marquee.
