New Wedding Ceremony Room

Looking for a venue to get married at? Want to make the most out of our beautiful summer weather? But can’t find somewhere licensed that combines this?

Lewtrenchard Manor is proud to announce the licensing of their archway, which allows couples to get married whilst their guests sit in our beautiful courtyard. This brings the grand total of our licensed rooms to 5 in house rooms and now a 6th outside. Upon being licensed on the 21st April, our events co-ordinator, Vicky Lee, immediately contacted all of the weddings who were currently booked, offering this venue as a choice.

Soil To Plate is a celebratory meal, whereby the diners are first given a tour of our beautiful gardens, being given an informative and interesting talk about the various fruits and vegetables the garden has to offer at this time, by none other than our Head Gardener, Martin. Martin certainly knows his plants, pointing out when the bounteous vegetables are about to be dug up, or cut. He knows exactly when the asparagus has grown too high, or when the frost has spoiled any of the vegetables. He is a fount of all knowledge!
