The entrance to this magnificent stately home is through a grand courtyard that leads up to the house.

These are two unique spaces that are the perfect backdrop for any special event.
You can hold your civil ceremony here without any legal restrictions. For your ceremony you can choose the chapel, the restored walkways, the grand staircase, or the gardens of the estate. After your ceremony, you can enjoy some delicious canapes and cocktails on the beautiful outdoor terrace.
If your dream is to say “I do” looking out towards the ocean, then this is possible too! Where? On the Adraga beach. Live music and the Atlantic Ocean as a backdrop will make time stand still… a truly magical moment. After your beach ceremony and your photo session, you can re-join your guests back at the main house to commence your reception and celebrations.
