FAQs

DO WE HAVE TO USE YOUR PREFERRED SUPPLIERS FOR OUR WEDDING?

No. Unlike with most wedding venues, you are completely free to use who you wish allowing you to create exactly the event you have imagined. If you'd like some suggestions then please see the suppliers listed on our Friends page.

DO YOU CHARGE CORKAGE?

No. While we'd love to run your bar for you, you are also free to supply your own alcohol or hire your own bar for your event at no additional cost.

HOW MUCH ACCOMMODATION DO YOU HAVE ONSITE?

We have two stunning safari lodges, each sleeping up to nine people and with proper interior kitchens and bathrooms. We also have nine giant luxury bell tents which will each sleep up to five people. Then we have our couples yurt. This means our in situ glamping accommodation will sleep up to 63 people. For more information please take a look at our Glamping page. We can also pop up extra bell tents if you'd like to have even more of your guests stay on site. We are very happy to charge guests directly for their glamping accommodation. There are also lots of offsite accommodation options nearby in Ely.

DO YOU HAVE TOILET FACILITIES ONSITE?

While we do have toilets (and hot showers) in the glampsite and our safari lodges have their own fitted bathrooms, we don't currently have permanent toilet facilities in place to support the party element of your event. We will however hire in luxury toilet trailers on your behalf or you are free to source these yourself.

IS POWER AND WATER AVAILABLE ON SITE?

Yes! The party paddocks have a dedicated 32 amp power supply and we have cabling a distribution to get power to wherever you and your suppliers need it! There are 8 outdoor power sockets around the lake on their own dedicated 16 amp supply suitable for lighting and ceremony music. There are also drinking water taps in all of the paddocks and the glampsite. The Glampsite kitchen and showers have hot water and our safari lodges have their own kitchens and bathrooms.

CAN WE HAVE OUR CEREMONY AT THE FARM?

Yes! While we aren't yet able to conduct the legalities many of our couples still hold a ceremony at the farm, having done the legal bit elsewhere beforehand. You may have your ceremony anywhere on site, however popular locations include by the lake and amongst the trees.

ARE YOU PET FRIENDLY?

Absolutely! Furry friends are positively encouraged and we love nothing more than seeing dogs in wedding photos.

ARE YOU CHILD FRIENDLY?

We believe that younger guests should have just as good a time as the grown ups. There is stacks of space for children to run around and explore and lots to keep them entertained including our fairy door trail. We always leave a bucket of fish food by the lake so guests can feed the carp and we love taking little ones to meet and feed the alpacas and chickens. 

ARE THERE NOISE RESTICTIONS?

Loud amplified music e.g. a live rock band needs to finish by 11 pm however quieter music may carry on later as long as it's at a volume the neighbours will not hear.

WHAT TIME DO WE HAVE TO FINISH?

Guests not staying on site need to leave by midnight to minimise late night traffic past our neighbours. Guests staying on site may carry on the party (at a sensible volume) as late as you like. Guests who leave on the night are very welcome to return the next day to enjoy any day after festivities you may have planned.

WHAT ARE YOUR ECO CREDENTIALS?

Sustainability and care for the environment is at the very heart of everything we do.

 

- We have invested in a large solar power generation system which produces far more energy than the business uses.

- Our eco compositing toilets save tens of thousands of gallons of water each year and the composted waste is used as fertiliser.

- We plant trees, shrubs and wildflowers to encourage a diverse range of insects, birds and animals.

- All our firewood and charcoal comes from local and sustainable sources.

- All wedding waste is recycled wherever possible. Food and organic waste is either fed to our chickens or composted.

- We encourage all customers to implement a "leave no trace" policy for their event.
