About our Venue


Set within a totally screened secluded 5 acre site with its own private lake Minstrel Court offers stunning surroundings and great photo opportunities all year round! Our listed building complex offers both character and flexibility and we have on site parking for up to 70 cars!

Specialising in all year round outdoor ceremonies whatever the weather (not usually possible at other venues) most couples choose to marry in either our romantic Lake Pavilion or the stunning Meadow Chapel. As well as being equipped with full PA and Music facilities, both have roofs to protect you and your guests from sun and showers.

We have now also introduced a ceremony only offer, available tuesday and wednesday. Hold your special ceremony in our stunning Lake Pavilion or Meadow Chapel with some time to take photographs in our romantic gardens and then hold your reception elsewhere!

STOP PRESS!! We have now finished refurbing our amazing three storey Regency Barn complete with stained glass windows which can seat up to 135, so now whether you like beautiful outdoor marquees or soaring beamed barns we can cater for every preference, making Minstrel Court one of the most flexible wedding venues anywhere!!

We are also licensed for Ceremonies in the historic listed beamed Long Gallery which seats up to 160 people. Alongside a large patio area overlooks the Marquee with great views of the lake! The lofty adjoining Granary serves as an evening buffet area or simply another great indoor space to utilise. We also have a room specially fitted out for Brides and their entourage to get ready in and use on the day

Our beautiful twin peaked roof Marquee is a fabulous space to dine overlooking the gardens taking advantage of our superb in house catering, and can be configured to seat between 40 and 145.
