Busbridge Lakes is a truly unique and exclusive marquee wedding reception venue in Surrey, set in the grounds of a Heritage garden hidden in its own private valley, just 1.5 miles from Godalming. The lovely gardens date from 18th century, with many mature specimen tress and shrubs, which form a magnificent background for the collection of rare, endangered and exotic birds. The gardens are designated as a Heritage grade 2A, renowned for the follies and grottoes including a Doric Temple and Gothic Boathouse. There are lovely walks around the 3 lakes that are shaded by old and rare trees.
The present house was formerly the coach-house and stabling of the original Busbridge Hall and was thought to be adapted by Lutyens around 1906. The name was originally a combination of “bush” and “bridge” as was originally used by the same family from 1297 (de Bursebrugge) to 1558 (Bustbrydge).
Imagine you and your guests arriving through the arch of the old stone coach house, with its elegant clock tower sited majestically above the old cobbled courtyard, you turn through the black swans wrought iron gates and out into the enchanting grounds of Busbridge Lakes, you see your marquee sited on the main lawn overlooking the Canal lake surrounded by formal lawns and magnificent old specimen trees.
As your guests marvel at the views, the home to one of the largest collections of water birds in the country, with cranes and peafowl gracing the lawns and giant carp guiding effortlessly through the waters, wander off and take advantage of some truly unique photo locations including a Gothic Boathouse, a Doric Temple and a rustic stone bridge spanning the lake.
