  • Vaulty Manor Open Day 4th & 5th March

    We had a brilliant two days at the Vaulty Manor open weekend. We love having a chance to catch up with our Brides and Grooms that have already booked with us, potential couples who have any questions and the Canapés went down a treat. Looking forward to the next one.

  • Braxted Park

    Just cleaning up from a two day corporate event for the Landrover 'HiberNOT' campaign. The boys and guests had fun in the very wet and muddy grounds driving New Landrovers and Rangerovers - serving homemade soup in the woods. Whilst other groups learnt how to make game sausages and rosemary and red onion flatbreads in the cookery school.

  • The Cookery School at Braxted Park

    Today William has been with Anderson's LTD all day, where the group made the food for guests that they invited to join them for a three course meal in the evening. So much fun and great for team building.
