Personal Biography - The current owners of Hipsley Paddock have lived at the property with their family for 22 years, and during that time it has been a fantastic family home. Their daughter would like to share one of her memories of their time at the property:

Having spent my childhood at Hipsley, it was a dream come true to host my wedding here in June 2015. My husband and I, who met at school and spent many happy times growing up here together, now live and work in London and still love to visit at weekends. We got married locally at Baxterley Church, which dates back to the 12th century. After the service, our friends and family walked across the field to my family home where we held the wedding breakfast. A jazz trio played in the charming, open-sided Hovel, which has old oak beams that we decorated with fairy lights and fresh flowers. As the sun came out, our guests spilled onto the front lawn and sipped Champagne around the pond, it was just as i’d imagined! In the evening, we had a marquee for 100 on the back lawn, local ales from Church End Brewery and straw bale seating along the orchard, which always gets the best views of the sunset! Hipsley is a truly enchanting setting, and a place I’ve loved to call home.
