We can offer mid-week packages including two nights accommodation in The Stables for couples looking to escape. These normally take place on a Wednesday with arrival the day before (Tuesday) anytime after 4pm for a 2-night stay in a luxury lodge.

"We were married here on 7 December 2022 and we can honestly say it was a magical day in a winter wonderland. The level of thought and detail that have gone into making a small and intimate wedding so beautiful and special was exceptional. Highly recommend!"
"My husband and I (!) have just had the most amazing weekend. Wendy is an incredible host, who made us feel so welcome from the moment she responded to our initial enquiry. We have had the most wonderful weekend, getting married with our little family present. Our intimate wedding surpassed all our expectations. We are so, so grateful to Wendy and the whole team at the Love Shack!"
Cannot reccomend this place highly enough !! Our wedding was perfect from start to finish. Beautiful accommodation and grounds. It's just so magical listening to your chosen music float through the trees as you walk through the trees with their twinkling lights to the beautiful little wedding shack. The beautiful grounds offer lots of opportunities for lovely photographs and Wendy is a joy to meet ! Just the perfect place ❤"
"After 11 months of planning our secret wedding, we eloped to The Love Shack for the most magical weekend and a wedding day that we will never forget. When we arrived, we were absolutely blown away. The pictures do not do it justice at all. The grounds are absolutely stunning. The venue is so hidden away and secluded - exactly what we were looking for. I don’t think we can put into words how this place made us feel. Thank you for making our wedding the most magical day. We wish we could do it all over again!"
"The Perry-Lees - We would absolutely recommend The Love Shack! We got married here on 14th December 2022. Initially we had booked at the registry office with a function room, those plans grew arms and legs and turned into an event that was just the opposite to what we wanted. Following a recommendation from a close friend, we stumbled across The Love Shack and immediately fell in love. From the initial contact with Wendy, you could just tell that she was such a kind and incredible human, dedicating her time to create our special moment of getting married. Wendy was super responsive, full of information and encouragement, helping with suppliers such as photographers and catering to bringing all of our plans together with zero fuss. Thank you so much for being part of our special day, we sincerely couldn't have predicted how magical and precious this would be - so yes, we would recommend to anyone who is looking for an elopement wedding to get booked in quickly, there is a reason this place is extremely busy!! All our love,"
