Whatton House and Gardens has a sense of serenity and charm that draws you in.

Visitors to our gardens and those who choose to celebrate their wedding day here never fail to be taken in by the welcoming and familiar feel of the gardens and the sense that Whatton is a much-cherished family home.

Bring your friends and family and come and enjoy the beauty of this timeless 15 acre garden cared for by Lord and Lady Crawshaw and their gardener, Roy Carr. Whilst the original character and design of the gardens remains the same, additions and improvements in plantings are ongoing. We are sure that, whatever the reason for your visit, you and your party will be struck by the beauty of the gardens and the vibrancy of the flowers and plants.

Whatton House and Gardens is the perfect venue for your special event. The gardens provide a stunning setting for your Wedding Day or for that special family celebration amidst the flowers and trees.

This historic home is enveloped by beautiful rolling parkland and its exquisite 15 acre gardens which will provide the magical setting for your wedding day.

Our garden marquee site, located in the depths of our incredible English garden, is a beautiful setting for a wedding breakfast and evening party. The stunning grounds will be exclusively yours on your wedding day and, because we want you to feel completely at home, our experienced team will be on hand to work with you and explore your ideas and dreams, helping to turn them into your reality.

We do not currently hold a Ceremony License at Whatton House, however we can offer you some wonderful alternatives! For a traditional church wedding the beautiful All Saints Church in Long Whatton is only a mile and a half down the road. If a church wedding is not for you, there are several lovely venues around who can provide a Civil Ceremony.
