Madeira is the perfect setting for a small wedding, an intimate gathering or for a group of friends to meet. We have 16 individual beds, and 28 bed spaces in the cottages (if all sofa-beds are used, not counting cots) and The Bothy has been designed to allow up to 32 people to sit down to eat.
The magic of Madeira is the garden, and we have created lots of wee spots where a wedding or christening can take place. It’s very rustic and natural and you can have your ceremony under an apple tree, in the woods by the snow drops or blue bells, in The Bothy or perhaps at The Dell. The Victorian walled garden with its lawn and orchard can also be used for the ceremonial part of your celebration.
When Madeira is rented exclusively we also offer up a chance to book out The Games Room for a one-off occasion which has a big screen, pool table, darts board, American fridge, chess table and a log burner. Unfortunately we can not offer access to the games room throughout your stay.
We are also really happy to receive enquiries for other gatherings such as corporate away days; yoga, painting or writing retreats; walking groups, groups of car enthusiasts and the list goes on. If you require single occupancy, we can accommodate 8 people on site (5 Terraced Cottage bedrooms and 3 bedrooms in The Gardeners Cottage) or if room sharing is appropriate we can accommodate 16 people without the use of sofa beds.
We do not offer ‘packages’ but rather will tailor your stay to your needs. We can help organise as much or as little as you like ie you can do the organisation or we can collaborate and take a blended approach. We are happy to talk it all through with you and put in place what you’d like.
