An unforgettable day!
By Sarah&Jonathan Stoppard, on 01 Aug 2013
We got married here august 2012 so as its coming up to our 1st anniversary I remembered I'd not posted a review! In the run up to the wedding Sue the wedding coordinator was fantastic! Nothing was too much trouble&she tried to accommodate our every need! Her calm approach was also helpful amidst wedding stress! The marquee was decorated perfectly&as I had imagined it. All our guests enjoyed their stay in the beautiful rooms. Food was lovely&drinks not overly priced. If u want a venue with an intimate,friendly feel then go to Cockliffe! I only wished we had longer there!
The only thing I would suggest to Cockliffe is that many other venues will provide your table plan/menus for the tables for you if needed&although only a small thing it can take pressure off if you are trying to make these things yourself! Also it might be nice to put something extra special in the bridal suite just as a gesture. My mum&sister had decorated it without us knowing but had they not it would just have been a 'normal' room! All in all a truly special day made even more magical by this unique venue.
A Perfect Day!

We had our ceremony and reception here in September. The hotel, setting,and service were perfect and the rooms are gorgeous! Sue the co-ordinator is a huge help and all the staff are really friendly, helpful and efficient. Everything went so smoothly, we couldn't have asked for more - our guests loved the venue and the food and we had the most amazing day.
Generally very good wedding venue

Our ceremony was at Papplewick Pumping Station just down the road, and we couldn't have hoped for a more perfect venue for the evening do irrespective of it being so close by - having exclusive use of the venue was wonderful, the staff were fantastic and the food was absolutely amazing - several hardened carnivores were enthralled by the steak. All of our little details were looked after - and it's an absolute credit to Sue and her team that we barely noticed the admin of the day - it seemed like an effortless evening do with our friends and family - Couldn't praise more highly

I have just had my wedding at Cockliffe House on 18th August and it was absolutely incredible! I was so happy with how the day went, the venue looked beautiful, all our guests loved the place and their bedrooms and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Sue the wedding planner is awesome and puts your mind at rest during all the preparations and on the day. We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you for the most special day of our lives we will never forget it! Mr & Mrs Cooke x
Lovely venue, great wedding day
By Helen & Edward Blount, on 02 Oct 2012
We had our wedding reception at Cockliffe Country House. We had a fantastic day. The staff were attentive & professional, the food was great & the venue (rooms & grounds) was great for photos. In the build up to the wedding, the staff were approachable and tried to accommodate our wishes wherever possible. The bar closes at midnight which may be an issue for some couples although it wasn't for us.
A WONDERFUL RECEPTION!
By Sophie Walkman, on 03 Sep 2012
We had our evening reception at Cockliffe after getting married abroad.
Throughout the run up to the wedding reception Sue (the wedding coordinator) was always extremely helpful, answering all the questions I had.
Cockliffe were happy to let us do our own thing in terms of decorations, layout and how the evening would pan out. They also designed a custom Italian style buffet for us at no extra cost.
The evening ran without a hitch and all the staff were extremely helpful, polite and friendly.
As well as all this, the bedrooms are fabulously decorated and all of our guests thoroughly enjoyed their stay.
To sum up it was a wonderful evening and we couldn't have asked for more!
A beautiful location and fantastic service

We cannot praise Cockliffe Hotel enough. The location is perfect for a wedding, with great photo opportunities. The size of the hotel and the flexibility they give you for food and drink was exactly what we wanted for our small ceremony and breakfast and big party at night! The co-ordinator is very organised and will make you feel very confident that your wedding will run smoothly. Having the rooms there meant that we could carry the wedding through to the next morning with some of our guests. We are so pleased we chose Cockliffe as we do not think anywhere else could have provided us with the wedding we wanted, with the great service and beautiful surroundings.

The staff are incredibly helpful especially Sue the wedding co-ordinator. We had a fantastic day that was run like clock work, we didn't need to worry about anything. I thoroughly recommend Cockliffe as your wedding venue. p.s. the food was fantastic!

My wedding reception was held at Cockliffe House on 26th May 2012. From the moment we booked the support and help we had from Sue and Sam was second to none. The venue itself is charming and quirky with all the rooms having a different theme. The food was beautiful and the service was excellent. All in allthe day was perfect and I would have liked to have been able to stay another night to make the most of the place.
Perfect for an intimate wedding
By Mrs Riddle, on 08 Jun 2012
We held both our wedding ceremony and reception here on 27th April 2012. The whole day from start to finish was fantastic. Susan, our wedding planner, was excellent throughout. All our guests commented that the venue was perfect for the amount of people we had (around 50). The food was excellent. My only criticism would be that the evening buffet was not out long enough. Overall, a great venue for an intimate wedding, made to feel welcome, would recommend.
