There is plenty of nearby accommodation for your other guests in super-luxury hotels, inns and B & Bs all less than fifteen minutes away - so, something to suit every budget.

Elkstone Manor offers you the freedom to chose the marquee of your choice and the food of your choice.  Our three trusted suppliers all have an extensive range of their products to fit all tastes and budgets.  An average cost would therefore be difficult to pin down but about

£15,000 for the venue*, the marquee and the catering, along with all the kitchen, the loos, the lighting, the furniture, and indeed everything you need to make your party one to remember, would be about right for 100 guests.



We use two highly recommended event catering companies: or

Both are experts in catering at marquee-weddings, which is a specialist business. You may of course chose another caterer, but expertise in outdoor catering is vital for the success of your event as it involves more than just putting food on the table!!

The marquee supplier is with whom we have worked happily for the last twelve years.

*’The venue’ means the outside of the house - its gardens, woods and grounds.  The accommodation is separate.
