Home of the 22nd Lord and Lady FitzWalter, and built in 1704, this beautiful stately home and grounds is the perfect venue for a truly magical wedding. You only have to share your dreams with us and we will make them happen.
The wedding party can walk in the footsteps of Jane Austen, who was a regular visitor to the house. Little wonder the tranquillity and beauty of the house and garden were the inspiration for her masterpiece, Pride and Prejudice.
