Parking is very limited in the village of Upwey.  St. Nicholas church kindly allow use of their car park to the public and there is a donation box in the car park.  However, we would kindly ask our patrons who use the church car park to park their vehicles with consideration and care in order to maximise space and not to cause inconvinience to other users of the car park.  We thank you in advance for your consideration.


Our stunning sub-tropical water gardens  provide you with the perfect venue for your romantic wedding ceremony followed by a drinks reception where your guests can wander through the gardens or relax beside the river, ornamental ponds or the wishing well its self.  Your wedding breakfast will be unforgetable as you dine inside, or out, with simply delicious food and beautiful views of the gardens.
