Our reception hall can accommodate up to 80 people and is a particularly lovely space for smaller weddings. If you would like to drape and have fairy lights that can easily be arranged although the lodge already has a lovely earthy character that some people dont even worry about drapping. Our wooden chandeliers some with real candles offer that touch of romance to the atmosphere.
