Some pointers for planning your event !
Accomodations: Many of you have cottages or homes close by, but many of you do not. There are a multitude of rental properties, B & B's, Air B & B's, resorts and motels within a 15 to 20 minute drive to the farm.
Here are some names of establishments close to the farm where your guests may book their stay or you may blocj book rooms: Sleep Inn in Bracebridge, Travel Lodge in Bracebridge, Riverside Inn in Bracebridge, Paterson Kaye Lodge in Bracebridge, Quality Inn in Bracebridge to name a few. There are many many more options slightly further afield.
Parking and Transport: There is ample parking at the farm and the few guest who do decide to drive are welcome to leave their vehicles in the parting lot overnight and taxi or bus back. Unfortunately camping is not allowed on the farm for wedding guests. We strongly recommend that bus services be organised to ensure the safety of your guests after a night of celebration! There are many local taxi companies available and we recommend Hammond Transportation in Bracebridge' for your bus or limousine needs.
Catering: Brooklands is delighted and honoured to work with Fresh Kutz (please click for menu options and contact details) and One Fifty Five Catering/El Pueblito Restaurant (please click for menu options and contact details) as our preferred caterers. This means we encourage you to work with them as they are truly tasted and tested, work really well with the Brooklands team and can cater to your every need. Their quotes will include, the menu of your choice, all the food services, set up, take down and most of all - completely stress free to you. If you decide you do not wish to use one of our preferred caterers and replace them with someone else, Brooklands will charge you a landmark fee based upon the total cost of your food service.
