We’re lucky enough to work with some fabulous venues. And one we’re excited to share with you is Penton Park – a place we’ve recently forged links with. This award-winning, family-run venue located in the Test Valley offers exclusive use for all kinds of celebrations. Here’s just a little on why we love it so much (and know you will too)…
The pretty village of Penton Mewsey in Hampshire.
Penton Park is a country house with real character. Not only gorgeous, with a Georgian-style elegance, it also has a wonderfully warm and welcoming feel as it’s first and foremost a family home. The three generations who live here have put their hearts and souls into restoring it and these days they have chosen to open up their doors and share it as an exclusive space for all kinds of special occasions. As well as the family, who only host a maximum of 20 events in any one year, there is a dedicated events manager, who is on hand to help from the moment you book through to the day itself.
The venue has four impressive rooms indoors and is a short walk from a pretty local country church. It’s also licensed for outdoor ceremonies, offering two beautiful spaces in the grounds to say your vows. In spring, the garden is awash with a pretty burst of colourful wild flowers. Fancy a unique treat for your guests? Penton Park brews its own ales on site in its early Georgian kitchen. From Pales to Porters, beers to IPAs, they have something to suit everyone’s taste.
As grand as Penton Park is, this is your place if you want to embrace a feeling of homely spendour. You’ll immediately notice the family feel when you arrive – from family pictures to the friendly Irish wolfhound and cats that inhabit this home. Some guests have been so enamoured with doggy Duke that he’s ended up on the dance floor! No problem if not though, he’s usually found upstairs peacefully snoozing away in his own private quarters!
