Now this is a place I have had my eye on for some time - it’s local, it’s fun, it’s versatile and it’s everything I love in a wedding venue. Alcott has been a family home for over 45 years. It is a gorgeous stretch of land in the most beautiful setting with live animals on site, pretty little holiday cottages and a fabulous B&B too. Somehow Lucy and her mum always knew it would make a great wedding venue, and over the last five years they’ve certainly turned it into one!
They have an incredible team to help them, from the ladies who run the B&B with them to the guys who take care of all of the sound and staging for your event. It’s a real team effort, and there’s a proper personal touch. Lucy has also spent a lot of time researching trusted local suppliers and has an extensive list of fabulous people you can work with, so they can bring in whatever you need to make the day truly special and unique to you.
There are various structures that you can hire for your wedding - yurts, tipis, marquees - and you can customise the day to your liking! It’s a real blank canvas venue which can be styled to your taste. Lucy and the team will help you decide how to set up your day, there will be a bar and caterers for you to use and you’re free to bring in other elements as you so wish. It means that every wedding at Alcott is totally different but always top notch, and what could be better than that?!

You may also be glad to hear Alcott are available for other events too - corporate dos, family fun days, birthdays or celebrations, you can create your own pop-up party with the full support of the Alcott team. They have everything you need to deliver an exceptional event, including their on-site accommodation and local links in the area too. You can even book yourselves some activities to keep everyone entertained - from teambuilding to rodeo to water sports on the lake, it can be arranged. The space is yours to use as you wish, so you don’t need to feel restricted.

The more I see of this venue, the more I love it and the more excited I am to see what they’re going to deliver next. I can't wait to work a lot more closely with them in future!
