General Info For Both Venues


We are happy for you to supply all of this yourselves and we do not charge a corkage fee. We can supply large refrigerated trailers which act as an ideal cold store for all food and alcohol. If you would prefer to have a pay bar for your event then we ask that you use our own bar services.


We work closely with a selection of professional and friendly catering companies who offer a variety of delicious food options. Everything from formal wedding breakfasts to hog roasts, paellas, pizzas and BBQ’s.  If you would prefer to use your own caterers then we ask that you run it past us first so we are confident that they are a professional outfit. If they have not been to the venue before there may be a fee of £30 for them to conduct a site viewing.


The music aspect of our events remains our most restricted policy. We do allow acoustic live music in the afternoon (no speakers). A disco must follow from 19.00 – 23.00 through our own sound system.


We offer ‘glamping’ accommodation in luxury canvas bell tents for 1-5 people. If your guests are interested in staying on site they can book a tent through us and it would be set up for their arrival, or alternatively your guests can bring their own tent/campervan.


We also have two beautiful lakeside log cabins available to rent on a neighbouring lake. Water Lily sleeps up to six people and Kingfishers Nest up to four people. These are also available on request and can be used the night before for the bride and bridesmaids to get ready on the morning of the wedding and can also be used as the bride and groom suite.

Other popular items that we hire include:

– Fridge trailer for cooling drinks and food

– BBQ’s (for hangover curing bacon butties on the Sunday morning)

The venue is also suitable for both disabled and elderly guests. However, our loo facilities do not have disabled access and therefore it may be necessary to hire an additional unit.

"Literally there is everything you could possibly need here. It’s so well equipped and in a stunning location. The worst part is that you have to leave. We hired out the whole venue for the weekend to have a family get together and it was absolutely perfect! Can not recommend the place and the owners highly enough. If you want a chilled out space to relax and enjoy yourselves then this is THE place to be. Only regret is that we didn’t stay longer. Awesome. Created some wonderful memories."

Debbie Burtenshaw

"Absolutely loved our time at a Teybrook Orchard. Facilities were perfect. The marquee and awning is a fantastic space for a large group to be together and still feel spacious and not on top of each other. Every member of our party was so thrilled with the accommodation, it was a fantastic weekend. Thank you so much, will definitely recommend you and will certainly be coming back!"

Gemma Logan

"Chalkney Water Meadows was such a fantastic venue for our festival-style corporate event! It’s such a beautiful spot in the countryside but with all the amenities for a really great party, regardless of the weather. Helen was really helpful, putting us in contact with suppliers and discreetly being on hand for the big event. We couldn’t have asked for a better venue for what turned out to be a fabulous day."

Mansfield Monk

"Just wanted to say thank you once more! Everything was absolutely perfect and we couldn't have wished for a more beautiful place for our wedding to take place! You have been really helpful, responsive and flexible around our (many!) questions and queries so we really appreciate it :)"

Elodie Domenge & Anthony Guidici

"We just wanted to email to say the biggest thankyou from us both for yesterday. We had an absolutely amazing day and we are so so happy that we were able to celebrate at your venue with all our family and friends. They all loved the site. Your help from the beginning has been fantastic and a real pleasure to work with you guys."

Eleanor Knight

"I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you on behalf of Tom and I for a truly magical day. We had an absolutely amazing time, I honestly don't think that it could have gone better. Thank you for all your hard work and efforts. The log cabin was amazing, we were so sad to leave there yesterday, but alas all good things have to come to an end."

Karen Foot & Tom Pratt

“What heroes Nat and Arch were. Thank you so much for giving our party such snazzy boogie shoes- you handled all the drunken 50 year olds brilliantly with the increasingly slurred requests. The sound system was fab and the lights really made the party glow and twinkle. Everybody loved it! Thank you so much guys.”

Tristan Davies

“Walked in, shown around the most beautiful place ever! Then followed by Dan proposing. Best start to a holiday. Such a beautiful setting. Well laid out and very well equipped, brilliant service. Archie is lovely, very polite and accommodating. Thank you!”


“Archie and Nat were amazing. We have had the best weekend. Wow what a beautiful place. We will back again and would highly recommend. The showers were fab and hot. The toilet facilities were super too. Kitchen is amazing with everything you need. Thanks to you both.”

Michelle and Anthony. Nottingham

“Still keep thinking about our amazing day. I know we’re biased but it was seriously the best wedding we’ve ever been to. This is the thoughts of all our guests too. Cant thank you enough for making it such a success!”
