Where do I begin? It was magical the moment we arrived at Buckland Estate. We stayed at the main house for 1 night for a company retreat and it was hauntingly beautiful. It was a shame we had to check out early to ride the hot air balloons, and couldn't stay to explore further. The place was well equipped offering cooking facilities and warm beds with electric blankets. We picked home grown lemons and lettuce from the garden for our salads. Bill the caretaker took us on a tour and we were surprised to learn that the estate offered many accomodation options including glamping, and had the potential to host events with 1000 people under a marquee set up in the car parking area. Service was excellent with Russell the owner going out of his way to organise delivery of a bag unintentionally left behind on the premises. Mobile reception was poor, though that wasn't a bad thing given that the estate had so much to offer, and gave us opportunities to bond, chat and laugh together as work colleagues. There has been discussions in the office about hosting a Murder Mystery Night, a perfect venue for such an occasion we think! Thank you Buckland Estate for an out of world experience.

Buckland Estate was the perfect venue for our wedding recently. Di and Bill were so helpful throughout the whole process - very communicative and responsive and there whenever we needed them. They made everything streamlined and stress free and had all hands on deck the morning of our wedding helping to set up. We loved having all our guests being able to stay in the houses, glamping tents or camping and the facilities they offer are fantastic. Plus, the surrounds of Buckland are absolutely stunning and made for the most beautiful backdrop for our day. We can not thank Di and Bill enough and highly recommend Buckland to anyone.

Buckland Estate was the dream location for our wedding on the 23rd April. We lucked out with beautiful weather and had a stunning ceremony on the front steps. The barn was absolutely perfect for the reception as well. Everyone was very comfortable sleeping in the house, the cottages and glamping tents. We were able to share a BBQ breakfast the next morning with a coffee van to debrief with our guests about the incredible day/night. Russell the owner is so relaxed and accomodating and makes you feel very chilled out as a result. We felt perfectly at home and welcomed as his guests. We couldn’t recommend it more for a wedding venue, I can’t imagine anywhere as relaxed, beautiful and perfect.

Buckland estate is such a stunning place! We got married here March 2023 and it was incredible. Russell, Di and their team made us feel so at home and welcome. Our wedding was so beautiful and exceeded all our expectations! Our friends and famil could all stay on site for the weekend which made it so special. We wish we could live that weekend over again and again. Cant recommend them enough for your next function! Thanks so much Russell & Di!

We had our wedding at Buckland in Dec '22 and what a perfect, unique setting for a wedding weekender. Di and Russell were great in helping us plan the wedding, and at every step throughout the weekend. That said, the true MVP goes to Paul who not only tirelessly helped in the setup of the wedding, but also jumped behind the bar when our bartender had to head off a little early. Your service and company were so appreciated. Venue highlights include: - Between the house, cottages, glamping, and camping, there is ample space for guests to stay on the property. It meant so much more time to connect with guests outside of the madness of the wedding day. - The house was an incredible backdrop for pictures. The detail, art, furniture, and history in each room is so unique. - The flexibility. It was important to us that we could serve what we wanted, we didn't have to leave at midnight, and we could dance into the early hours of the morning. - The pool and grassed area made for the perfect recovery day. Big thanks to the Buckland team.

Everything about Buckland Estate was perfect from the moment we first visited the venue. The beauty of this place is something that really needs to be seen to be believed. The property is stunning and private which made it the perfect place for our wedding weekend. Our guests loved the glamping facilities on site and it made it really special to be able to have everyone stay the night of the wedding and come together again for breakfast the next day. Russell and Di made the process of organising at Buckland so seamless and stress free. No request was too big and every email was responded to really quickly which makes a huge difference when planning such a big event. From the very beginning this was a safe space for our LGBTQIA+ wedding which was very important to us. Our photos from the venue are just so stunning and the day was just perfect, from getting ready in the beautiful home, the ceremony, photos and right through to the reception. I only have positive things to say about this beautiful estate and wish we could do it all over again!
