Wedding Venue

Great Lodge – an idyllic setting in which to create the wedding of your dreams. We want your day to be special and unique and whether your taste is traditional or quirky, this family run business aims to support you in making your wedding exactly as you want it from start to finish. From croquet on the lawn to fairground stalls in the garden, the choice is yours.

Vineyard and Wines

Our vineyard is just over a hectare in size and the oldest Bacchus vines were planted in 1989. Since then we have added Pinot Noir, Seyval Blanc and Pinot Meunier grapes. The sandy clay soil, combined with the dry, sunny East Anglian Climate, produces grapes full of flavour and leads to the production of delicately balanced award winning still and sparkling wines. In April 2020 we were awarded organic status by the Soil Association.
