Our First Choice
What can I say, this was our first choice of venue and why look anywhere else, it is perfect, views are stunning, all the cottages have had a beautiful revamp, Tracey and her family were perfect, so helpful and so friendly, you are left alone to create your perfect wedding but the owners are also there to help if you need anything. We had the best wedding ever, even despite the rain. We are sad to leave this magical place,it will stay in our hearts forever. A massive thankyou to all. Xxx

Lovely Venue
Lovely venue, with very welcoming owners, who have experience and just want to help you have a great day. Considering the owners are new to the venue, they should be so proud of all the hard work they have accomplished. I am in no doubt that they will do so well and offer as an amazing experience to all brides and grooms as well as guests as they did for us.

A Wonderful, Fun, Pasty-Filled Day!
Tracey, Meghan and the very helpful team at Countryways worked really hard to help make mine and Amy's wedding a wonderful, fun and pasty-filled day! Even when our marquees blew down in bad weather, the staff were happy to help sort it and we improvised well. Many of our guests said what an amazing time they had, staff were smiley and that the weather actually made our wedding a more cosy day.

Amy and I loved our cottage and we danced the night away. I highly recommend this gorgeous venue for weddings!

Thanks again everyone who helped out on the day, including Tracey's husband and all their boys. You made us so very happy! X
