South Lawn with view of Manor House and Bride’s Cottage

The Grounds: There are several areas where a tented reception or open air ceremony could take place at Historic Rockland. The largest and most expansive area is the South Lawn with its views out to the meadow garden and the cattle field beyond. Ceremonies have also taken place opposite the swimming pool which is a great place for a cocktail reception. Perhaps one of the prettiest spots is the area below the rock outcroppings looking up through the gardens. Here the view of the blooms nestled in among the rocks with the Georgian architecture of the Manor House as a backdrop is spectacular.
