The tables are long and rectangular rather than round, making it easier for guests to be able to talk to each other. The Longhouse bar is adjacent and close enough not to split up the wedding party, and importantly on the same level. There is a disabled lavatory and baby changing facilities also on the same level.


The Longhouse was built to high environmental standards and is an award winning eco wedding venue. We are very proud to be one of the eco-friendly wedding venues to recently receive GoldStar status -the highest category – in Green Tourism’s Business Scheme.

Solar thermal and photovoltaic panels produce more than 70% of our annual electricity requirement.
