The current owner, Linda Cooper, continues the hospitality trend by hosting weddings and other special events in the beautifully landscaped gardens surrounding the estate. Linda is a great believer in the strong sense of spirituality and romance that exists at Pollards. In fact, when she first set eyes on the property, it conjured scenes from Gone with the Wind, one of her favourite novels. The peace and tranquility, the surrounding sugar cane fields with idyllic views down to the sea, the eighteenth century sugar mill and massive old plantation bell outside the front door, all contributed to her knowing immediately that this was the house of her dreams.
This venue cleverly remains traditional in style yet boasts a number of modern features. The house, cottage and mill wall are surrounded by 2.5 acres of walled gardens and one of the great advantages is that you can offer friends and family the opportunity to stay within the grounds of your wedding venue. Two elegantly rustic bedrooms are available to the bridal party on the day and night of the wedding, while the 3-bedroom Dovecote Cottage and two-bedroom Plantation View Villa can accommodate up to ten adults and boast contemporary design, open plan lounges with dining and kitchen areas, and private patios with sprawling views across the St. Philip countryside.
Pollards Mill offers a range of packages for weddings and events of all sizes, to suit individual tastes and budgets. The availability of necessities such as chairs, tables, dance floor and tents of varying sizes means there is no need to deal with a number of different vendors. Linda can also help with any additional requirements – from recommending caterers, wedding florists and photographers to arranging spa treatments and booking activities for the bridal party and guests.
