Thank you all so much!
Held our wedding here yesterday and loved every minute of it.
The day didn’t quite go to plan due to the British weather but Rachael, David, and all the staff pulled out all the stops to ensure it was still perfect!

Every little thing I’ve asked of them, they have done!
The food was amazing, far more than we expected.

It’s truly a beautiful place and so many of our guests remarked how they didn’t even realise they did weddings!

Would highly recommend as a place to hold a wedding, truly stunning venue with a management team that can’t do enough for you.

So organised and helpful, they can guide you through everything but are also able to put you at ease.

Thank you all so much for all your hard work.

Absolutely outstanding service, we had our wedding here yesterday and we couldn't of ask for anything better, we was waiting to see how the weather was going to turn out with all of our fingers crossed for it to be brilliant so we could get married outside in their new bandstand and what can we say it was amazing with the wonderful Rachel and David who could not do enough for us, the staff also that work all day and night and gave us all the best day we all could wish for!!! We would all recommend any event to be held here especially weddings as they take time, effort and care and give you 100% of their time to you to make it special. Which we couldn't of asked for anything better or well organised as our day was yesterday it was so special and so glad we had our wedding here!!!!! Such a special day with amazing people thank you all so much for a beautiful day!!!!! Xxxxxxx
