Thorndale Oaks – A Rustic-Elegant Indoor Venue in Oxford NC with Outdoor Wedding Gazebo, Pond and Views
Thorndale Oaks is an Oxford NC wedding venue. It is situated on acres with breathtaking outdoor views, that was styled from a former club house on golf course land expressly for all types of wedding events and other parties and celebrations. After visiting this space about 30 miles from Durham, I’d call this event space rustic because of its country pastoral feel and the romantic rustic embellishments that have been built to enhance their acres of outdoor space. Yet the “event house” has the look of a more recently built clubhouse. Plus, it was specifically designed for the ease of celebrations.
I will describe some favorite parts of this event venue and property.
The wedding arbor first catches the eye when driving up the lane on the property. Upon a hill with occasional large trees beyond a large pond with a fountain sits a stately wedding gazebo fronting a cluster of large oaks. This gazebo is a gorgeous wedding space in this natural environment, and laden with too many massive hanging ferns to count! My visit was in September, so still very green. The wedding gazebo had rows of vintage white church pews on the lawn and I was told that Thorndale Oaks also has other pew options available as the owner is also an antiques buyer.
The path from the gazebo to the event facility had hanging stained glass pieces, blooming gardens and cozy benched areas ending with a large outdoor patio and fireplace making Thorndale Oaks a great outdoor space for parties.
Indoors, the main banquet area has been designed for seating and dancing with an adjacent room for easy buffet accommodations or seated and served dinners. The facility has a taller than average ceiling and a truly eclectic decor with 18th century antique tables and chairs mixed with the stained glass windows and farmhouse tools. All-inclusive catering services are executed and personalized to you by their on-staff chef.
