Rothamsted Manor, Harpenden
Muddy says: This Grade I listed manor house in Harpenden is a complete stunner and each and every one of your guests will want to be the first on the dance floor. It’s yours for weddings, significant birthdays and any other occasion where you want to pretend that this is your family home. Rothamsted Manor has parquet, big fireplaces, stained glass and oak panelled rooms inside and 12 acres of formal gardens, including a croquet lawn, outside.
Nestled amongst 12 acres of attractively landscaped gardens and wooded countryside, the Grade I listed Rothamsted Manor will provide an unforgettable backdrop for your special day.
With sunlight streaming through the delicately stained glass windows, the wood panelled Great Drawing Room, completed in 1863, provides an exquisite escape in picturesque Victorian surroundings and is ideal for those seeking classic sophistication. Boasting spectacular views of the north-west gardens, it is the picture-perfect setting for an intimate wedding breakfast and can accommodate up to 76 guests. In the evening you can continue your celebrations and welcome additional friends, the serene panelled Library and dramatic Entrance Hall with inglenook fireplace, being perfect for serving a sumptuous buffet for up to 120 guests.
For larger parties, we suggest an elegant marquee on the Croquet Lawn with views over the manicured landscapes, walled garden and rose arches.
The magnificent warm brickwork, verdant lawns and historical architectural details also provide a stunning background for gorgeous wedding photography.
