Celebrated as one of Australia's most distinctive hotels, this iconic regional venue is perfect for stylish boutique weddings. A relaxed yet romantic and sophisticated ambiance flows through the property from the gorgeous, classic Hampton's style cottages to the authentic regional restaurant, beautiful purpose-built event space and soothing day spa.
Only 90 minutes drive north of Sydney and situated high on the NSW Bouddi Peninsula, the property is surrounded by untouched National Park, many secluded beaches and pristine bays. All together perfect for the complete destination wedding.
The established and ever-beautiful grounds provide the perfect backdrop for a delightful garden ceremony, and the purpose-built Conservatory is a grand event space, with a design adaptability to make any choice of styling look spectacular. This space can hold approximately 120 guests for a sit down event or up to 220 for a cocktail event. This grand space is bathed with natural light, which flows through the large, white sash timber windows, and boasts views of the delightful Bells' gardens and swimming pool. It has its own deck that opens out onto the main lawn area and, at the east end, concertina bi-fold doors open out to a private outdoor garden courtyard suitable for mingling, drinks and canapés.
For smaller weddings, The Library can cater for up to 18 seated guests to enjoy an intimate and personal event.
The menu on offer for weddings takes its lead from the adjoining multi-award winning restaurant. Cuisine retains its core tenets of simplicity and sustainability with all menus tailored to suit particular culinary likes.
Lunchtime weddings are especially popular with the sunshine bathing the lawns and gardens in a golden glow. Picturesque garden parties and catering is also a possibility with us, for a beautiful al-fresco soirée.
