We wanted to thank you for a lovely stay and for making Ella and Gavin’s day wonderful. The hall has a lovely ambience, it feels homely and warm and that is down to thoughtful design and organization of course but mainly the staff who without exception are helpful in every way. It just remains for me to thank you and your team for your excellent organisation of the day, and remaining calm when we were not entirely. You really do think of everything and it makes for a very enjoyable occasion.

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for our wonderful wedding at the weekend, every single thing you did for us was perfect and we’ve had a truly brilliant time- only just starting to recover! The grounds, the staff, the food, the barn, your wonderful coordinators, everything went absolutely smoothly and we couldn’t have asked for any more. Thank you for being so flexible with us to make our day exactly how we wanted it- we hope to see you soon for some other events.
