Table centre

Set in 315 acres of gardens and countryside Oakley Hall presents the perfect backdrop to your special day.

As you arrive at the grand entrance take in the relaxing views of the surrounding countryside in contrast with the circular lawn and striking Georgian façade.
The terrace at the back of the Hall is laid out to box hedging and overlooks a sunken garden and pond with a striking fountain.
An extensive lawn stretches into a woodland of mature trees - beech, yew, wellingtonia, blue cedar and oak - some of which are over 200 years old. At one time there would have been many more trees in the grounds but these were cut down in the thirties during asset stripping when the owners fell onto hard times.The result has been the spectacular rolling views over the grounds to the fields beyond that we enjoy today.
Wander through the woodlands and you fall upon more evidence of the gardens as they once were and as time goes on more walks will be opened up for guests to enjoy
