Avalen again offers you versatility when it comes to accommodation. The former Cart House has been stylishly converted to offer the bride and her closest friends somewhere to stay the night before the wedding. Being onsite and hidden from the wedding guests, the Cart House is the perfect place for them all to get ready. There is plenty of room for hair and beauty professionals to do their magic and retracting glass doors allows everyone to spill out into the walled garden where you can sip champagne and relax. This walled retreat is also the perfect place for the happy couple to have five minutes alone together later…
Upstairs in the Cart House you will find a romantic bolthole for the newly weds. A unique handcrafted slate Roman bath tub will enable you to stop, relax, and reflect on your special day, before retiring to the luxurious super king sized bed. Views across the surrounding farmland add to the magic of this stunning honeymoon suite. Downstairs there is a second bathroom with twin shower and small kitchen with comfy beds for use by the wedding party on the eve on the wedding.
We offer exclusive use of our group accommodation www.torviewbarn.co.uk just minutes away at from our other farm. The award winning 6 ensuite barn conversion, two bedroomed farm cottage and two bedroomed lodge offers spacious accommodation for up to 28 guests. Transport is provided to get your guests from Tor View to the wedding ceremony and return them at the end off the day’s celebrations. This is included in the price of the exclusive hire.
Tor View barn has a fully equipped kitchen so your guests can cater for themselves or have a professional chef in to cater for them. The dining room easily accommodates everyone so your wedding celebrations can begin with supper the night before, and end with a full English breakfast the day after! There is an all weather gazebo and barbecue area for eating alfresco and a spacious lounge for accommodation guests to relax. All of the bedrooms have flat screen televisions and there is infinity wifi throughout. Each of the barn’s six bedrooms have ensuite shower rooms (one of which is a wet room) and there is a separate bathroom – all on the ground floor. The dining room, kitchen, lounge and two toilets are upstairs which can be accessed by a chair lift if necessary. The first bedroom in the cottage is a double bedroom and the second has two single beds which can be zipped together to make a super king sized bed. Again the bedrooms have flat screen televisions and infinity wifi. There is a spa bath in the cottage and a large shower in the garden games room. The cottage has its own kitchen and dining area if the guests prefer their own space. Again the accommodation is reversed, with the living area upstairs to take advantage of the fabulous views out across the countryside.
The lodge has two bedrooms, one is furnished with a king sized bed and the other has two single beds which again can be zipped together to make another king sized bed. There is an ensuite bathroom to the king bedroom and a separate shower room for the twin/king room. The lodge has an open plan living space with its own kitchen, dining and lounge areas. The views are again of the beautiful countryside and our cows can often be seen grazing in the field at the bottom of the garden. There is plenty of outside space for your guests to enjoy at Tor View. We have a 5-a-side football pitch where you can organise pre wedding team games or go into the play barn for badminton and table tennis. Even guests who arrive as strangers will soon become friends.
