We chose Pethers as our wedding venue, and we couldn't have been happier. The team couldn't do enough for us, and the venue is simply stunning. The rooms are beautiful, and they scream romance. The food is absolutely delicious, the wedding garden is intimate, the surroundings are perfect for pictures, and the real fire in the middle of the main lodge exudes warmth and comfort. We were not disappointed in the slightest with Pethers, and we would highly recommend it as a wedding venue.

Stunning location, huge treehouses, delicious food & exceptional service from the friendly staff. A perfect place for a wedding, weekend away or special dinner. Everyone on the Pethers team went over & beyond to enable our wedding dreams to come true. My husband and I will be coming back for years to come. 10/10.

I cannot recommend Pethers for weddings enough! Our wedding was perfect. Everything was amazing, and we had an incredible time. Pethers is so beautiful, and we couldn’t have asked for a better venue. Everyone could not stop complimenting the venue or the food! The food was amazing! We had a few “best wedding we have been to” comments as well! Being able to roast marshmallows on an open fire at our wedding was also a massive hit. The whole thing felt like a rainforest fairytale.
