Ortus Say "I do"

Ortus say “I do” and finance a beautiful wedding venue in the heart of the Causeway Coast. 

A stunning wedding venue in the picturesque Glens of Antrim

We’re delighted to confirm that we have assisted with funding the acquisition of Limepark Estate in Armoy, Co Antrim. 

Limepark is a stunning wedding venue with self-catering accommodation located in the picturesque Glens of Antrim, a stone’s throw from the North Coast and world-renowned Giant’s Causeway. The opportunity was introduced to us by Lindsay Commerical Finance, a leading local brokerage.

a Perfect base to explore

Limepark Estate is the perfect base to explore the Antrim Coast.

The 17th-century stone-built venue was originally a busy rural farm but was lovingly restored by its previous operator to produce an idyllic wedding venue and tranquil escape for those seeking to recharge in the most relaxing of country settings. 

Set amongst ancient stone buildings and gardens – a perfect backdrop for photoshoots or some relaxed ambling – the venue also includes award-winning cottages which can cater for up to 22 guests. 

A bright future ahead

The Biesty family from nearby Ballycastle will now embark on their own journey with the property, having plans to enhance and develop the offering over the coming months and years.

Mervyn Linton, Relationship Director at Lindsay Commercial Finance, said “It has been a privilege to work with both Ortus and the Biesty family.  The deal was agreed quickly and efficiently making it as streamlined as possible for all involved. 

Glenn Biesty also commented:
“We’re delighted to be able to complete the acquisition of a property that we have admired for a long time and look forward to welcoming our guests.  The hospitality industry has been impacted heavily with the events of last year however we see the estate as having fantastic long-term potential and plan to add some new features in the near future. 

The acquisition of Limepark is a great example of how Ortus can support local businesses – we have a team based here and were, therefore, able to visualise the plan the Biesty family have for the business. Structuring an appropriate funding package was straightforward, particularly with the professional input of Lindsay Commerical Finance. We wish the Biesty family every success as they move ahead with their new venture.
