It was a perfect day, we could not have wanted for more - thank you! Everything ran like clockwork and the staff were wonderful, it was as if this were their first wedding and not just something they do day in day out. Completely stress free and everyone who came couldn't say enough good things about the venue and how it was run. Well done and thank you. Lisa & Dave Greenhithe, Kent 6th Feb 2015

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Our daughter's wedding at your beautiful venue on Sunday was a special and magical day and exceeded all our expectations in every way. When we visited last year and had a look around we all knew it was the perfect place but sometimes things don't live up to your hopes. This is definitely not the case with you and we couldn't be more grateful and happy. The staff were absolutely wonderful. Nothing has been too much trouble, both in the build-up and on the day itself. Everyone was so friendly and so helpful and seemed genuine in their concern that everything should be perfect - it was! The food was absolutely wonderful and we had so many people commenting on it, particularly the seafood starter and the lamb. The waiting staff were attentive but discreet and the way the room was transformed without fuss or disruption for the evening was faultless. The accommodation was first-class and the breakfast the next morning was beautifully prepared and so tasty. I could go on and on but I am sure you get the picture! We really cannot thank you enough. With our heartfelt thanks to everyone involved, Libby & Bill Mesquitta

Stunning venue. You made us feel valued and special. It certainy didn't feel like one in one out, which it could easily do given how busy you are. Well done staff and thank you.

An absolutely brilliant day from start to finish. Staff from day one were amazing, so helpful, nothing was a problem. Duty Managers were great too and the day could not have been more perfect! All our guests loved it, loved the venue, loved the food and said how fab the staff were. Thank you for making our day all we dreamed of and more.

To everyone at Cooling Castle Barn, We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding the most perfect day ever. Every single member of staff was fantastic and could not have done any more for us. So many of our guests commented it was the best wedding they had been to, from the food to the beautiful grounds! Please give our special thanks to our Toastmaster & Duty Manager who both made our day so magical and were just brilliant! Thank you again

Good evening, Having just returned from your venue following the wedding of Mr & Mrs Pryor, I honestly have to say I am simply spell bound and in amazement of the shear delight of the day. Our room was spotless, you would be hard pressed to find a spec of dust in the accommodation and for me that is a credit. The room was well equipped and spacious, fresh linen on the bed and ample tea & coffee to be enjoyed. Breakfast in the morning, wow, I walked out of the breakfast room & tweeted #fullenglishbreakfast - it was one of the best I had ever eaten. Your gardens are a simple credit to you and your staff. From the lady cutting the dead heads off to the young lad going round each area by hand and sweeping up every inch of debris from the previous evenings wedding. Total attention to detail. The food was amazing, so well cooked and tasty. The salmon was lovely and a huge size fillet. The evening was a lovely event, the bar staff very friendly and the bar prices did not reflect your venue nor the exclusive clients that you have! I felt the prices were excellent and excellent value for money. I have spent a number of years in hotels and from being in your venue as a guest, I can simply say I never once came across a miserable member of the team. Every member of staff wanted to help you, serve you, look after you and most importantly ensure you leave happy. I want to say a huge thank you as I have walked away amazed at your venue, food, grounds and most importantly your staff and their service.
