To include the library on the first floor is considered an addendum to the contract if needed for overflow. You are also welcome to tent part of the stone terrace in the winter while our tent is down.



Woodend has ten caterers on our approved list who are all familiar with Woodend and provide the tables, chairs, linens and dishes. You may provide your own alcohol, if you wish, and we will accept delivery of the alcohol on Fridays. The catering company provides the bartender.
