Stunning views
Cressbrook Hall has the most stunning views we have ever seen, everyone is super friendly and willing to help in anyway they can. Planning a wedding during a global pandemic is not easy but they are there every step of the way.

I don’t even know where to start, I know how everyone says your wedding day is the best day of your life but it truly was and I don’t think it would of been with out the amazing team at Cressbrook from me constantly emailing Emily who was perfect and helped no end to the kitchen staff, the bar staff and even the ladies who were setting out the tables individually wiping all the glasses you were all amazing and helped me and Nick enjoy are day, Bobby is amazing and when she showed us round we just knew it was perfect for us she told us different ways to keep costs down depending on our budget, how we can dress the venue and what looks nice, Thank you all for your hard work you we’re all amazing and I’d recommend anyone who is considering to look round to do so the gardens and scenery are spot on and the staff are ace.

Thank you so much for hosting our special day!
I can't recommend this place highly enough. We got married here 5th September 2015. Bobby and Veronica were amazing and went out of their way to make sure our day was perfect. The staff on the day of the event were so professional, all of our guests were extremely impressed with the food and service! The grounds themselves are stunning and are the perfect backdrop to our wedding photos. Thank you so much for hosting our special day x

Cannot fault anything
We got married here last weekend and cannot fault anything. Emily, Harriet, Bobby and the rest of the team were nothing but accommodating. Every guest was blown away by the venue (which we were too)- especially by the view when you drive in the top entrance. We loved all the cottages too- we had Garden Rooms, Cottage, Lower Lodge and Rubicon Retreat. All were well equipped and allowed us to enjoy the gardens and views (especially Rubicon Retreat).
Thank you for letting us spend our special day in your beautiful house. It will always be special to us x

We cannot fault Cressbrook Hall enough
We had our wedding reception at Cressbrook Hall on Saturday 1st April 2017, after our marriage in Ashford-in-the Water church. We had 76 day guests and additional guests for the evening. We cannot fault Cressbrook Hall as a venue. The setting is spectacular with amazing views of the hills on the opposite side of the valley – so many of our guests commented on the stunning location and beautiful gardens. The staff on the day were really helpful and flexible – a special thank you goes to Emily who helped ensure the day ran smoothly and was extremely professional, attentive and efficient throughout the day. The in-house canapes and sit down meal were excellent. This venue affords so much flexibility to make the day exactly as you would like. Cressbrook Hall also have a number of holiday cottages on the estate so there is the option for guests to stay on site – the majority of our guests opted to do this and we filled all nine cottages. We would highly recommend Cressbrook Hall as a wedding venue.

Perfect Day from start to finish!
We got married on the 7th June 2017 and it was the most perfect day from start to finish. The communication from the ladies who own this beautiful estate were so helpful with any query I had and nothing was too much trouble for them. The were very accommodating to schedules and we had a few issues and arrived a little later on the day prior to the wedding. Again, they were very helpful and made sure we were ok before they had to leave for the night. We were able to set up the tables the night before and were left to set up in peace. Only complaint I have it one of the showers wasn’t working correctly, but everyone who stayed was able to work around the issue. The setting is beautiful and our wedding photos looked stunning! The food was lovely and professionally presented. If you are looking for picturesque, then this is the venue for you. Thank you so much guys and gals!

My family has lived in and owned Cressbrook Hall for the last 40 years. It's important to us that each couple who books their wedding with us, feels relaxed and part of the family. I will take care of you from start to finish as I understand that wedding planning can become a little bit stressful!
