This charming, private property lies between Magnolia and Middleton Plantations in St. Andrew‘s parish. Like those gardens, Runnymede can be accessed from Ashley River Road. Your guests’ experience begins as soon as they enter through the iron gates, down a proper, picturesque dirt path surrounded by a canopy of centuries old trees, twisting vines and Spanish moss. At the road’s end, the forest opens up to
reveal a vast meadow displaying pristine lawns and
punctuated with magnolia trees and an oak tree so large it is a sight upon itself. Beyond the meadow, an unobstructed view of the Ashley River, lazily floating by provides the perfect backdrop for any event. The rich, Southern history is apparent through the brick ruins of the old Victorian style Plantation house, creating a romantic mystique, intensified as the night falls and the dramatic landscape lighting is cued.
