Thorpe Garden is set within 3,000 acres of private estate, nestled in the heart of the Staffordshire countryside.
Concealed within the estate is a two-acre walled garden, which has a rich history. Once cultivated to grow produce for the estate (owned by the Inge Family since 1631); in the 80s it became an organic garden, selling its wares to London restaurants. It has now been restored to its former glory, abundant in flowers and trees.
The Ceremony Room is a striking new addition to the garden, designed by RIBA award winning architect Seth Stein. The building features a large sloping roof which floats over the listed Victorian wall, with glass doors opening onto a large terrace and the garden beyond.
The hand-crafted, one of a kind yurt boasts steamed mountain ash supports, solid oak doors and large windows which frame beautiful views of the walled garden. Fairy lights, flowers and festoons create the atmosphere for an intimate dinner and drinks. After dinner, this room is transformed into a spectacular dance floor.
We pride ourselves on our feasts and use the finest produce. A team of highly qualified chefs cook fresh, quality ingredients on our tailor-made grill and rotisseries. We present simple, memorable dishes from canapés to whole barbecued lamb, our signature beef sirloin bricks and smoky chargrilled vegetables. We work with you to design a menu to please you and your guests.
The original gardener’s bothy cottage has also been sympathetically restored, and can be used as the Bride’s Room.

Tom and Jennie were always so patient and understanding during our visits and we were very grateful for their expert guidance on all matters which made us feel that you were part of our family and catered for our every whim. We have had many comments from our guests about the delicious food and quality of the wines. Your catering staff were a delight. During the day and evening you were always on hand to ensure smooth running as well as personally looking after the happy couple. We miss our visits now and would like to have the day all over again.
