Braxted Park is the largest walled private estate in the county, originally from the estates of the Countess of Pembroke. A magnificent country house built in the Queen Anne style during the beginning of the 12th century and beautifully nestled in 500 acres of carefully landscaped lawns and natural settings. By the 1950s, the large Queen Anne house was restored by Sir Allen Clark and now has all the modern commodities you need to celebrate a wedding. 

The property appears after a majestic treelined driveway; it sits in a secluded location and offers many beautiful spaces for your celebration regardless of how grand or intimate your plans are. You can find a walled garden, an orangery, a magical pavilion, and many other hidden gems around the historic walls of this estate. 

The brick walls hide secluded spaces full of life and natural wonders. During spring and summer, you can enjoy the blooming flowers, the fresh fountains attracting butterflies, and all sorts of animals. When the sun goes down, you get to witness a starlit sky and the calm of this property. Regardless of the season you choose, you will have a unique setting for a loving celebration.
