The Garden Terrace

The Garden Terrace, located in Fearrington Village halfway between Chapel Hill and Pittsboro, North Carolina, provides a classic Southern garden venue. Surrounded by rolling pastures, stunning gardens and a brick patio perfect for cocktails, the Garden Terrace is the ideal setting to enjoy fabulous cuisine and gracious service on your special day.
