If big house, meadow, countryside…..and free to roam chickens are on your wish list for a venue then Penton Park in Hampshire is the one for you. I visited the house and I was astounded by how pretty the house was and the stunning location. I think I had venue envy a little. I’ll have to renew my vows every year so I can get to celebrate in all these wonderful venues I’m finding.
For me what added to the beauty of the house was the fact that it was family run. I found with Gate Street Barn that, when it’s run by the owner, you get more of a homely feel and that personal touch. It is their home and they love it and that came across when I spoke to Danielle. I think the fact that three generations live in the house says a lot about how fond of it they are.
The rooms are light and airy with wood floors throughout and the views across the Hampshire countryside took my breathe away. They are just in the process of getting their license to hold ceremonies, but in the meantime you can hold intimate receptions here in one of the stunning rooms.
Located in stunning rolling Hampshire hills, moments’ walk away from the 14th Century village church, and entirely south facing it is a fabulous place to spend your day celebrating your wedding day. Even on the dullest of winter days Penton Park rises to the occasion with roaring log fires and candelabra’s glittering throughout.
