Top Wedding Tips

View the venue in person as photos can be deceptive. When you walk around the corner here at Sandhole the view of the lake takes your breath away.

Ask what’s included in the hire of the venue. Here at Sandhole we don’t have any hidden charges, but some venues will surprise you with little extras!

Don’t stress too much about the finer details, what matters most is having your family and friends together in a lovely venue with some good food. The rest is icing on the cake!

The tour we got around our chosen venue was wonderful. I think we viewed all of the barns in the north west but this tour gave us the most information, and best insight into the day. The venue has places for both the older a younger generation to enjoy and relax. We cannot wait for our big day
