With stunning views across the lake, natural surroundings and a relaxed rural atmosphere, Rufford Abbey Country Park provides an enchanting backdrop to your wedding or special occasion.

At the heart of the park stands the grand remains of Rufford Abbey founded in the 12th Century, and around the Abbey lie parkland, woodland, formal gardens and a lake. The Talbot Suite, on the first floor of Rufford Sawmill, provides a stylish venue for your ceremony and celebration.

This listed building has a historic exterior but a fresh and contemporary interior. The Talbot Suite can comfortably seat up to 90 day guests & 150 evening guests. We also have an additional room on the ground that can hold an additional 100 guests.
