The Percy Arms Hotel, in Otterburn, is soon to be tansformed into the French chateau-inspired Le Petit Chateau – a stylish and quirky venue which the owners promise will combine the look and feel of a French country manor house with a range of unusual features.
The plans include the creation of a spectacular Mediterranean garden with its own wedding terrace (which will emulate those typically found in the grandest chateaux in the south of France) complete with palm trees, an antique fountain and lavender field.
It will include a wild meadow leading to a riverside setting where ceremonies can take place, along with a ballroom which will have floor-to-ceiling glass doors opening on to the garden.
When completed, the venue will be able to accommodate up to 160 guests for a wedding breakfast and up to 200 for an evening reception and will offer 30 luxury bedrooms, some of which will have secret roof gardens and hot tubs. Watch this space for more details of this completely unique venue.
