Loved Being at Abbeywood

Abbeywood for those who dont know is a hidden gem in my opinion ??
I had the pleasure of getting married here to my gorgeous husband on 12.10.19 and we loved being at Abbeywood.
We found the family run feel and the team to be so kind and just generally lovely to deal with, Harry and Jessica were fantastic on our day.
Lauren the the food was exceptional ??
We had our autumnal wedding ceremony in the beautiful barn followed by our wedding breakfast in the glass house, we stayed in the apartment at the top of the Manor House the night before and night of the wedding.
Thank you so much for making our day magical, I even got to fuss Max the cat and one of our guests saw a fox when driving into the estate.
Me and my husband Pete have the pleasure of working on weddings a lot and as a venue, feel Abbeywood has so much to offer, the friendly feel to this stunning venue is the icing on the cake. I am very excited see our photos stood with the big carved fox statue. Much love and thanks from Vicky & Pete
