Kestrel Park 

Kestrel Park is located in the Santa Ynez Valley, 30 minutes from Santa Barbara and close to the town of Santa Ynez. We are a brand new, exclusive, boutique venue that holds only 8 to 10 events per year at our private estate. This ensures that the grounds are always in perfect condition and that our clients are not rushed in or out  (which can happen at venues that book events back to back). 

The 17th century style Norman Barn and Dovecote provide exquisite scenery for photographs.

The Gardens

Set in a one acre "room" completely surrounded by a 12 foot high Hornbeam hedge, the Kitchen Garden within is only revealed after walking through the arched doorway and provides an endless array of backdrops in which to be photographed or stroll through whilst sipping a cocktail. Included is a stone fruit orchard with 30 trees including peach, pluot, plum, apricot and nectarine as well as an heirloom apple and pear orchard with 30 trees and a large vegetable garden. A cutting garden has also been carefully incorporated with over 700 tall bearded irises, 300 David Austin roses (comprised of 60 different varieties), gladiolas, tuberose, daffodils, carnations and a lavender garden.
