We’ve had so many requests for confirmation of our open days, we’ve been working hard to set up the dates…
So now we have them!
We are having 3 open days this summer and the dates are…
Saturday 22nd June 2013
Saturday 20th July 2013
Saturday 17 August 2013
How do your open days work?
They’re not ‘open’ in the sense that anyone can just pop in – you need to make an advance booking. You can do that by clicking on the “Enquire now” button on the bottom of any of the pages on our website or you can go over to our contact page and send us a message from there or you can drop me an email. There are a limited number of places each day so if one of the dates suits you best, do book it as soon as you can.
Can we book a particular time?
Yes we have 6 slots each day starting at 10 am. We allow 1 hour for spending with each couple and 15 minutes between each couple so the appointment times are:
What can we see at the open day?
The decor items will be available to see in situ and we’ll have various tablescapes set up. The barn is prepared for a ceremony with chairs and decorations. You can look round our accommodation; the annexe has been newly updated and the bridal suite cottage is also being fully refurbished this season. Wander around the gardens, the ponds, the orchard, the deck, take a walk in the woods, stroll along the river – imagine how it will be to hold your wedding in this wonderful setting.
Can we sample the food on an open day?
Absolutely! We’ll have some delicious canapes available for you to sample prepared by our caterers at the Dartmoor Inn and a glass of bubbly to get you in the mood for celebrating! If bubbly is not your thing, we’ll have non alcoholic alternatives too.
Will we get a chance to talk to you in person?
Yes, the reason the number of slots is so limited is that I set aside 1 hour for each couple so I can take the time to hear about your plans for your day and how you want things to be. We will also run through some ideas of our own for your wedding if that’s helpful for you.
Will we be able to wander around on our own?
Yes you can take as much time as you need on the open day either before or after your appointment to look around and get familiar with the venue. You’re welcome to bring a picnic and find a spot in the orchard, by the ponds or elsewhere in the grounds.
Can we bring anyone with us?
We’re happy for you to bring up to 4 extra people as long as you let us know when you book. We appreciate you may want family members or friends to see the venue too. If you want to bring along any suppliers, say a wedding planner or a florist, again just let us know in advance and we’ll be happy to welcome them and discuss any practical points with them.
Can we book a date with you there and then?
Yes our bookings are on a first come, first served basis so if you have your hearts set on a particular date and you love the venue you can book straight away. We can agree to hold a date for a limited period of time (say a week) so if you want to take more time, you can do that too.
We look forward to seeing you!
