The perfect place for your wedding drinks receptions in Norfolk

Pentney Abbey is surrounded by expansive lawns and greenery, providing lots of opportunities to celebrate outside. Whether you want more space to eat, drink or dance, a quiet place for guests to take in nature, or a designated area for fun and games, Pentney Abbey’s grounds are there for you to use as you wish.

Before you even step foot in the Gatehouse there is a neat lawn providing the most perfect backdrop and an ideal place to raise a glass in the summer.

Alternatively, through the arch of the Gatehouse is a charming courtyard with a fountain at its centre – a perfect spot for guests to gather after your ceremony for drinks and photographs. And there is the Rose Garden, where you and your guests are free to wander and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

Afterwards, you and your guests will make your way to the Barn for your reception. Inside the Barn is a newly refurbished bar, complete with original stonework, perfect for guests to relax in with their favourite tipple or coffee.

Just outside the Barn, there is an expansive lawn and lots of patio space with room for tables and chairs, offering another option for an al fresco drinks reception with easy access to the main indoor reception space. There is also room for children to play safely in the field right next to the Barn, where you can set up garden games and soft drinks. Why not hire a bouncy castle or Punch and Judy show? Or make it fun for guests of all ages with an ice-cream stand, fairground-themed challenges and giant chess.
