Wedding Receptions

Our beautiful parkland provides the perfect setting to continue your celebrations as a newly married couple. Whether you are planning an intimate reception or a large celebration, Basset Down can bring your vision to life.

Your wedding reception is as important to us as it is to you, which is why our dedicated Events Manager will work closely with you from your initial enquiry, through to the big day. Our ‘blank canvas’ rooms are tastefully decorated allowing you to style them to theme of your choice, working alongside our preferred suppliers who can help you create something truly magical.
