The Walled Garden
Upton’s walled garden, the original Victorian garden built with the farmhouse has been lovingly restored. Looking out towards the Blackdown Hills, this contemporary garden is peaceful and tranquil and the perfect setting for a special event. With low stone bench seating or a large terrace with wrought iron furniture, your guests can meet here beforehand, or mingle for drinks and canapes after your ceremony.
The Walled Garden is entered through a secret, wooden doorway opening out onto a natural stone terrace which overlooks the lawn and is surrounded by an abundance of mature flowers and planting. You descend two steps down the central lavender lined aisle leading to the beautifully hand crafted glazed oak arbour registered for civil ceremonies. There is a table inside for you to sign the register and a subtly suspended microphone so your guests can hear your special vows. Your choice of music can be played through discreet speakers hidden within the borders of the walled garden. The gently sloped lawn can be set out with seating for your guests and is easily accessible. As evening falls, the gardens are lit with romantic up-lights and fire baskets which crackle under the stars to create a truly magical setting.
