At Cambo, we propose that as the weather thing is so unpredictable, you shouldn’t allow it to be a major factor in making your decision. You should absolutely choose a venue where no matter the weather, your day will be perfect!
This is where Cambo excels; it isn’t defined by the weather. The estate is vast and the changing of seasons is palpable, each individual and spectacularly beautiful. The sheer variety of venues available to the lucky couples that book with us year-round is second to none.
Couples can choose to host their wedding weekend in the elegant Victorian stately house with beautifully decorated entertainment rooms, the rustic Tattie shed, the enchanting party woodland, the casual and bohemian courtyard, the delicately scented walled garden and the natural sandy beach or they could have the best of all worlds and combine as many of these options as they would like!
All year round Cambo has a little something extra to offer.
