Crane Beach Hilltop Horse Farm
This hilltop equestrian estate boasts 360 degree views of Ipswich’s best scenery, from protected forests to the Atlantic ocean. Sprawling over many acres, this property has four main areas. At the top of the hill, behind the owner’s family home, is a flat clearing with a manicured garden (in spring and summer) and breathtaking views of the horse pastures below. To the side of the hill is a large, flat field which overlooks a local sculptors studio. If you are lucky, he may have an installation of his art, all inspired by and meant to reflect the movement of the surrounding nature. Down below the hill are the horse paddocks, one of which can be tented for a truly unique wedding spot.
On your wedding weekend, enjoy 2 nights stay for up to 6 guests inside the on-site guest house. Next transition to your ceremony on the back-center terrace surrounded by beautifully maintained gardens and charming stonework. Enjoy a free flowing cocktail hour throughout the garden and lawn and transition on the larger terrace for an outdoor tented reception.
