We had our wedding in the tepees on 2nd September.

It’s an absolutely stunning venue. All our guests talked about  how different it was and how relaxed they felt. The hog roast was amazing and the service we received from Chris and his team was first class. The accommodation was lovely. We had lots of guests who traveled so stayed over and were really impressed with the size of their rooms. 

Breakfast was fab. Its one of our favorite  places to eat any time of year. The food is amazing. Thanks to all at the Pyewipe for making our day very special.
