Facilities and Capacity
Your celebrations can kick start with a memorable rehearsal dinner at the terrace. This quaint patio is complete with garden furnishings, stunning views, and complimentary lawn games. Ceremonies can take place in a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces. The property lawns are well maintained and can play host to both small and large ceremonies. With views of the white-washed house and rolling hills, you and your loved one can exchange vows in the great outdoors surrounded by family and nature. As you take your first steps as a newlywed couple, you and your guests can gather and mingle at the garden greenhouse for a splendid cocktail hour. This enchanting space provides a tranquil area to relax before the reception and many photo opportunities. You can take cherished images next to the sugar maples, the bridge, or in front of three fireplaces. Your reception can take place in the great outdoors or under a large tent, depending on the time of year. An adjacent large car park provides an easy drop-off and pickup space for party buses and taxis. Inside the property is a cozy beamed dining room. This intimate space is great for micro-weddings of just a few close friends and family members. The rest of the house features several accommodations and living quarters. You and your wedding party can relax in the library, lobby, and tavern before starting to get ready ahead of your sacred day.
The Horse & Hound is an event venue with no on-site staff, so our couples can bring in all of their own vendors, including catering, bar service and decor to make their wedding celebration unique. The Horse & Hound can provide reception items for indoor weddings, including chairs, tables, dishware, glassware, and flatware. The couple also has the option of using the on-site hand crafted birch ceremony arch; all outdoor wedding items must be rented.
