It always lifts my day when I hear that someone has chosen to stay at Updown for one of the most important occasions of their lives. I like to think that being surrounded by hundreds of years of history while you prepare yourself for the next phase of your life, is a reminder of how little the ceremony has changed over the last thousand years or so.
Hopefully the comfort, warmth, proximity to hair and beauty salons and excellent coffee and eating places……not to mention the inspirational views, all add up to make it the perfect venue for brides and their families and friends to lay down memories to think on in years to come.
Some of the most beautiful venues within a short distance are
Lamer Tree Gardens
Wardour Castle
Pythouse Walled Garden
and their sister venue across the road Hatch House
Sherborne Castle
and of course any of the charming country churches nearby including St Peter’s at the top of Gold Hill, only a minute’s walk away…..what could be more romantic than that?!
