The Domaine was the perfect location for our dream wedding, the onsite vineyard provided a selection of spectacular wines for our big day, whilst creating a beautiful setting. The bedrooms all benefit from ensuite bathrooms giving our guests privacy and the master bedroom and suite was large enough for the bridal party to all get ready on the day with hair and makeup artists fitting in the room also. The house itself is beautifully decorated and finished to an excellent standard, the exterior layout provided lots of flexibility and allowed the day to flow smoothly. Sarah the property manager was a huge help and we can't wait to visit again - hopefully for our anniversary! Nancy, June 2019
