Four venues in one
One thing that sold this venue to me is the different spaces. The lawn for my outside whimsical ceromony, the restaurant with its amazing flooring and ceiling flowers for the traditional wedding breakfast. Then you head over to the lawn where there is tipis, bench’s and igloos for a super cool bbq and party feel we even have a saxophonist coming to play Ibiza chill and a couples cocktails. Then in the morning there is a separate barn room around the back for our morning after the wedding breakfast with our closest family.

Hi Grace
We cannot thank you and your team enough for making our wedding day so special. We were warmly welcomed as soon as we arrived and nothing was too much trouble throughout the day. It far expected our expectations, it was simply a wonderful day and we haven't stopped talking about it since.

We've been in a wedding bubble!
I genuinely can't believe our wedding was nearly 6 weeks ago. We've been some what in a wedding bubble. Our day was truly magical and I cant thank you and the team enough.

Nothing was too much on the day and honestly you were my rock on the lead up to the wedding. Our guests were saying all done how amazing the venue was and it was the best wedding they'd been to.
Thanks and see you soon!

So far we’ve had a couple of different wedding coordinators but both have been so excellent, informative, friendly and have answered all of my silly questions.

We were blown away by how fantastic yourself & the staff were!
Good evening Lindsey!

So first off, thank you doesn’t even cut it - yesterday was literally the most perfect day that we could have asked for!

From the planning leading up to the day, to the day it’s self. I was just blown away by how fantastic yourself & the staff, you’ve really made our day! It was absolutely amazing from our arrival to finish. From speaking to our guests they have said that the venue was perfect, the staff was incredible - nothing was too much for them, they got involved with our guests & they/you made everything so easy! The food was incredible too, we’ve had so many compliments (particularly from our veggie guests!)

So from the bottom of our hearts, I cannot thank you, your staff, the chefs & everyone involved in making Old Rectory such an amazing place to be - many memories created that we shall cherish forever because of the work & kindness shown yesterday!

Thank you so much & kindest regards,
The new Mr & Mrs McManus x

Perfect Wedding Day
We had our wedding day here on 1st September and it couldn't have been more perfect! We wanted a wedding with some "personality" and all the staff here dealt with our requests without batting an eyelid. The venue itself is lovely and clean and comfortable, the food is amazing (we had a BBQ in the afternoon and chilli/curry in the evening) the outdoor space was so beautiful and tranquil. Every single member of staff was polite, very friendly and efficient. A few of our guests stayed overnight and we all loved the accommodation too. I would highly recommend The Old Rectory Hotel and the Orangery restaurant for any occasion.

Wonderful Wedding Weekend
Wow, what a wonderful wedding weekend was had!
Throughout the 7 months of planning, Lindsey made us feel confident that our day was important, not only to us, but to ORH too.
The wedding ceremony in the lavender barn was perfect. A beautiful, intimate room for our small wedding party to join us in.
Jackie was an absolute star. There was nothing she wouldn't have done to accommodate our guests, she is such a beautiful person & made our evening so very special ... thank you lovely lady.
Beautiful, period rooms, so full of character, outstanding menu, full credit given to the chef & catering staff, as every single meal during our stay was nothing less than perfect.
A big thank you to every single person involved in our day. If we could do it all again, it would be you we'd choose ... highly recommended, first class service.
