The Gardens

Enchanting gardens, brimming with English charm

Our traditional English gardens will play a pivotal role in the making of your wedding day. The immaculately kept gardens and lawns of the estate will act as your own private sanctuary, providing a picturesque background for your wedding photographs.

The Italian Walled Garden

A little taste of Italy

Our Italian walled garden is undoubtedly our best kept secret, and yet still an area of absolute tranquillity. The garden is a meticulously maintained haven, which will transport you to another era.

Adorned with outdoor seating and garden furniture, our walled garden is the ideal place to relax with a glass of something sparkling on a warm summer’s evening.

Parley Manor History

A charming Georgian Manor house, preserved in time

Built in the early 1700s and lovingly cared for, Parley Manor will make you feel like you’ve stepped back to times gone by.

This grand yet elegant, family run, Georgian Manor house is situated on what was once a large country estate, stretching from Hurn Forest to the River Stour. Today, the grounds are made up of four acres of parkland and gardens, offering you an exclusive secluded wedding venue, situated on the Dorset/Hampshire border. As you sip champagne in the traditional English gardens, you’ll be reminded of the countless celebrations that have come before yours, and your special day will become a part of the estate’s grand history.

The old and the new work in perfect harmony at Parley Manor. The manor itself provides a splendid backdrop for your photographs, while the canopy for your evening reception is well equipped to host a 21st-century celebration.

In close proximity to Christchurch, Poole, and Bournemouth, Parley Manor is well connected to the outside world, making it convenient for wedding guests. In addition, Parley Manor’s expansive grounds and clear blue skies will make you feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
