    Beautiful venue, excellent food, amazing weather. Great service. Good breakfast. Loved the decor and quirky knick-knacks. Just one complaint - why are there no fans? The stifling heat made sleeping difficult.

    The Nutcracker is a beautiful venue for weddings. Cute little chapel, plenty of vintage areas set up for photographs. Good food and catering and the bar staff is really friendly and gives good service.
