The Grounds

When you arrive at Guildford Farm for the first time, you will be immediately struck by the untouched natural beauty of the property.  With 150 private acres of picturesque Virginia countryside, there is something to catch the eye at every turn.  From the tranquility of the gently rolling pasture and shaded lakeside banks, to the stateliness of the historic farm house and rustic barn, the property is as unique as it is expansive. Given the property’s size, we encourage you to explore and imagine the possibilities.

There is no such thing as a “cookie cutter” wedding at Guildford Farm.  With twelve hours of unrestricted access to the property, you have the unique opportunity to design your dream wedding – one that truly fits your taste and personality. Prefer a little guidance?  We will be happy to provide ceremony and reception location recommendations that we feel maximize the beauty of your surroundings.  Scroll down for a brief teaser on some of our favorite options.
