Garden-Style Celebrations

Appleford is best known as the premier Main Line venue for beautiful wedding ceremonies and receptions. The estate has been used as a wedding venue creating lasting memories for more than 40 years.

While weddings are a major part of our business, Appleford in Villanova also hosts numerous events and social gatherings throughout the year. Appleford events include corporate dinners, receptions, holiday parties, wine tastings milestone celebrations, showers, and so much more.

There are three components to the rental of Appleford: you have the use of the inside of the house, use of the tented terrace, and access to the 24 acres of property.

As your guest arrive they are greeted by a lovely pond, small waterfall, and a gorgeous landscaped entrance in front of the estate. There is a tent permanently affixed over the front and side terrace of Appleford from April through November. This is the largest contiguous space for functions and includes a built-in dance floor and allows us to accommodate up to 200 guests at your special event. There are exquisite gardens on both sides of the house, which are ideal locations for cocktails.  You and your guests also have the use of the exquisite colonial Appleford estate house featuring beautiful antiques and exception design.

Event pricing varies according to the time of the year, day of the week and nature of the event. Please contact us for a custom quote by calling 610-527-4280 or emailing
