The Hawkhills offers a stunning and unique venue for weddings and special family celebrations.

Originally owned by the Love family, the Hawkhills is a beautiful and historic country home. Sympathetically updated, it retains its original Georgian and Victorian architecture and features, combining understated grandeur with a relaxed and tranquil atmosphere.

Located in idyllic countryside and with its own extensive, landscaped grounds, the Hawkhills will provide a striking and dramatic backdrop for your special day – and a range of inspiring settings for your wedding photography and video. The immaculately maintained lawns and gardens also offer additional outdoor space, with ample room for outdoor seating or a wedding marquee if required.
