Visited Gainsborough Retreats What can I say about them?
First impressions are they have beautiful and amazing Wedding and events venues set in Rural Derbyshire looked after by the amazing Gainsborough Retreats team.
The first is Knockerdown
As I drove to Knockerdown it is set in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside and on the doorstep Carsington water.
Looking around Knockerdown I can see it is perfect for a weekend wedding. Having all your family and friends stay with you in there 16 magical cottages that can accommodate 90 guests.
I can see the night before the big day the bridal party can have a couple of glasses of champagne and pampering in a beautiful cottage or having an on-site Spa treatment putting you in a relaxed mood. The groom party have the option to attempt activities at Carsington water.
On the day the bridal party get ready and the groom’s party can nip over and have some dutch courage in the local pub across the road.
Amazing Wedding Ceremony within grounds and party the night away.
The day after the wedding party can have a BBQ Breakfast, a swim in the pool or even a spa treatment. Whilst the newlyweds can relax in the honeymoon suite
Really impressed with the high stand accommodation, facilities and staff are really helpful
I live 5 minutes away from the beautiful village of Eggington in Derbyshire and close the Staffordshire border.
Eggington hall is a Georgian style hall set in impressive and stunning 16 acres. With beautiful gardens and woodland, a photographers dream for stunning pictures
As you wander through the woodland to the Dome roofed summer house is a perfect location to make your vows. Overlooking the lake and 18th Century Ironbridge
A perfect venue to set a marquee in the stunning grounds and on-trend Tipis.
It’s one to put on your list of venues to look and see.
