We had the most amazing day at Armathwaite Hall
By Mr and Mrs Kehoe, on 08 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 29 Oct 2016
Just wanted to say a very big thank you for all your help, support, guidance and love in helping organise and plan our wedding. You have been so kind and helpful during the planning stages, particularly with us living outside of the area. On the day you were brilliant and made me feel at ease knowing that everything was sorted and perfect. We had the most amazing day at Armathwaite, it was just magical and we wish that we could do it all again as it went so quick!! We knew from the second that we saw Armathwaite that this was the 'one' and with your help and planning we had the most perfect wedding day. All the staff at Armathwaite made everything perfect and all out guests were amazed. The food was delicious and all the staff from cleaners, reception staff, bar staff and porters were all friendly and accommodated any request that we needed. We were made to feel like royalty. Its fair to say that both of us will be coming back to stay with you very soon, we did not get chance to take full advantage of the spa but I am sure we will be doing that very soon and we will be returning every anniversary (I have already agreed this with Sean)!!
We are both very sad that its all over but we wish to thank you for everything you have done and hope to see you again soon. You really played a very big part in making our day run so smoothly and so perfectly, and we will never forget your kindness and support.
Mr & Mrs Kehoe
Everything ran so smoothly
By Natalie and Grant Smith, on 23 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 11 Sep 2016
We really cant thank Sarah, Gemma and all the Armathwaite team enough, for all their help on our big day. It felt like as though everything ran so smoothly, anything we needed or wanted had either, already been dealt with, or was being seen to. There wasn't anything that was too much to ask.
Thank you all for making our wedding so special
By Mr and Mrs Houghton, on 23 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 09 Sep 2016
Dear Armathwaite Hall team,
Neil and I would like to thank you all for making our wedding on Friday so special . We stayed Thursday and Friday nights and everyone from the Reception staff, to housekeeping, to the waiting staff at the dinner the night before, the wedding breakfast, the evening function and the breakfast the next morning were all wonderful- friendly and professional.
Thanks to Sarah and Gemma for guiding us through the wedding planning, there was a lot to organise but we got there!
The gift of the champagne and glasses was a lovely touch too, we were thrilled.
We hope to return to the hotel soon.
It was such a special day

Excellent hotel and fantastic staff
By Mr and Mrs Hockworth, on 23 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 19 Dec 2015
Just a quick note to tell you what an excellent hotel and fantastic staff you have. All the staff worked hard, pleasant, well mannered and made our weekend a weekend to remember . The food was fantastic both on the wedding day and the night before in the Lakeview restaurant.
And a special mention to Sarah the wedding planner. She was brilliant and very professional.
All the staff were friendly
By Mr and Mrs Robinson, on 01 Nov 2014
We are just writing to say a big thanks for everything Armathwaite have done to make our wedding special. All the staff were friendly and helped us to get organised (especially Sarah and the hair and makeup team who were brilliant!) and we had a really fantastic time at the meal on the Friday, the whole wedding day and the Sunday morning. All the guests also said how lovely a venue it is and how wonderful all the staff had been.
Most importantly, thank you very much for being our support throughout the whole process. You have been a huge help to us, making sure the day was how we wanted and answering all our questions. We have both really appreciated it!
Katherine and Paul (Mr and Mrs Robinson!)
Our day was absolutely perfect in every way
By Mr and Mrs Smith, on 20 Oct 2014
Just a quick email to say how much we appreciated everything you did for us leading up to and on our wedding day. You were really friendly, approachable and professional and managed to keep us on track and put us at our ease at what can potentially be a stressful time!
Our day was absolutely perfect in every way (we'd totally do it all over again!) and we would be grateful if you would pass on our thanks to all the other staff who are a credit to Armathwaite Hall.

It is an excellent idea for second timers like us
By Mr and Mrs Thompson, on 20 Oct 2014
I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you as I have just experienced one of your secret weddings at Armathwaite Hall. It was all just perfect even down to the sunshine on Friday afternoon. Sarah, your wedding co-ordinator and all your staff were attentive but at the same time discreet in allowing us privacy and time to enjoy our new status.
It is an excellent idea for second timers like us and I am sure it must be very popular.
We hope to return to celebrate our anniversaries as it such a wonderful place.

We loved every single second
By Mr and Mrs Bailey, on 20 Oct 2014
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for the great organisation of our wedding. We loved every single second and wouldn't have changed a thing. Everybody has commented on how well they were looked after at the venue and how beautiful it was. Please also thank your team, particularly Johnny for helping everything to run so smoothly. It can't be an easy job to get all of those guests where you want them!
Thanks again for making our day so special and I'm sure we'll see you again in the future as we'll definitely be back up.

What a truly magical day we had had
By Mr and Mrs Flynn, on 20 Oct 2014
As soon as we saw the wrought iron archway of Armathwaite, and made our way along the impressive drive, our minds were already being swayed. As the magnificent facade came into view, we knew - this was where we were going to be married. Catherine Hodgson looked after us throughout the planning process, and was always reassuring and would always reply promptly to my emails.
When the day was finally over, and we returned to the amazing Tower Suite, we spent some time reflecting on what a truly magical day we'd had. We'd enjoyed our ‘cruise’ wedding, and we'd taken all our friends and family on a fabulous weekend away. Living so far away in Stoke-on-Trent, and bringing our family and friends, from Stoke, Nottingham, Devon and Ireland, we knew we’d made the right decision in choosing such a beautiful part of the country.
Would I recommend Armathwaite for a wedding venue? You bet I would!
We will be back next August 8th to celebrate our first anniversary. We booked a luxury suite the day we left.

The staff on the day were excellent
By Mr and Mrs Cresswell, on 20 Oct 2014
We chose Armathwaite Hall as it is a fantastic venue with amazing views. I use to come here as a little girl swimming and I knew it was the place I wanted to get married. When we first booked our wedding 2 years ago Danni was excellent and very accommodating to our needs. Shortly after we started to deal with Catherine who was as equally accommodating and nothing was too much trouble and no question was too silly to ask. They made sure our day ran smoothly from start to finish. The staff on the day were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Johnny, who organised our day was superb and made sure our day was everything we dreamed it would be. The food was exquisite and everyone commented on it. The bridal suite was also amazing and it topped off our fantastic day. I would highly recommend having your wedding at Armathwaite Hall they made sure everything was perfect and the staff couldn't have been any more accommodating. Thank you very much for ensuring we had the day we also dreamed of.
Thank you very much for everything we had a fantastic time the staff are amazing. We will be back for our first anniversary.
Claire & Dave
