We are not a Manor, Hall or Castle. We are not a Barn, Hotel or Estate, we are Ashfield HOUSE. When couples take over exclusively for their wedding day, our house becomes like their home and we become like their extended family! Our house is a gorgeous blank canvas for weddings, it is grand yet homely and is jam packed full of quirky details, magically managing to soak up the personality of each couple. The atmosphere here is full of love and joy, probably because of the absolute legends that make up our wedding team, busy doing their dream job day in day out! Our house and our team are laid back, fun, creative and wild – but not so hipster your Nan wont approve! We are not normal… being an independent family business means we let couples do their thing without a load of rules getting in the way. We love drinking brews & brainstorming about how to make each wedding awesome – with mind blowing in-house catering, with a layout designed specifically for weddings and with 15 guest bedrooms, we really do ace it. Shameless brag, we’ve won the UK’s best venue (town/ city) 2017, 2018 and 2019 plus 13 other awards over recent years. For ‘20 and ‘21 we were living the dream as judges! We’re chuffed our brochure has found its way to you but fear not, if we aren’t your cup of tea (or the cracker to your cheese) we wont be doing the hard sell. Although lets be honest, you’d be crazy not to at least come for a nosey, right?

Getting married is arguably the most important part of the day and it deserves a spectacular space! Our Ceremony Room is the most exciting blank canvas. It has wonderful power to adapt itself to any kind of theme or colour scheme, traditional or contemporary, rustic or polished, or maybe even a bit of everything! The vaulted ceiling full of curiosities and numerous ledges can be styled to the max or left minimal to curate a space that feels like you. The limewash Chiavari chairs can be arranged in a traditional ceremony layout or a romantic circular style where you can be literally surrounded by your guests! The room holds up to 120 guests depending on the layout you choose. We can’t choose your wedding music but we certainly can play it for you, in fact we’ll pull everything together for you on the day so you can just enjoy it – we’re award winning for a reason.

So if you aren’t familiar with the peculiar British phenomenon that is the wedding ‘breakfast’ let’s bring you up to speed… it’s not actually breakfast. Back in the day couples would fast before the wedding but modern day couples prefer to spend all morning scoffing coffee, prosecco and pastries! Anyway, we’ve got somewhere glorious for your wedding meal, overlooking the garden and terrace, its a bright and airy beautiful blank canvas ready to be transformed into something that really represents you. We can seat up to 120 guests in here. We have even created a stylish space to put all your ‘stuff’. Think photos, trinkets, flip flops, guest books, candy, cakes and you can even project onto the wal

We love a good shindig and honestly we think we have THE best space to do it in. The bar, seating and DJ are different zones of the same space, this holy grail of layouts means guests wont be scattered all over the house (unless you want to spread out or have an outrageous number of party-goers ). The Library Bar is achingly cool and is fab for sinking into a sofa for a good chat. We host evening receptions up to 220 guests using both bars. When it comes to entertainment we are self confessed DJ snobs… we include a DJ from The DFC Experience who are a multi award winning entertainments company, with every wedding booking and the small team of DJ’s we work with are bona fide top blokes (where are all the girl DJ’s anyway?!) If this was buzzword bingo we’d be saying words like bespoke, experienced and experts but it isn’t – our DJ’s just want to chat with you over a brew and help you find a way to mix your beloved hard techno with Nan’s favourite to make sure your wedding is the absolute best. DFC have an online planner for you to add songs you want to hear, plus maybe more importantly, don’t want to hear. They want to know how you want to do your first dance, what vibe you are going for, and also how you want your evening to end and be remembered. Let’s party!

Perfect venue for any wedding style!

If anyone is even thinking of getting married here, my advice is... Do it!

We were originally getting married elsewhere and, due to circumstances outside of our control, our venue fell through and we were forced to seek a new venue. Luckily, Ashfield House were available on our date so swooped in and saved the day for us. They could not have been more accommodating, professional and helpful. The day itself was perfect, from, arriving at silly o'clock in the morning to get ready, to packing up the car the next morning to leave for home. Every step of the way, every worry, every silly question, were all answered and catered for with no problem.
We would recommend Ashfield in a heartbeat and want to say a massive thank you to all the staff there, from the housekeepers, to the chefs, to the serving staff and bar staff but, an extra special thank you to Leanne who ran our day and made us and our guests feel like royalty.
The grounds and building are absolutely stunning.
The food at the venue is insanely great and possible the best I've ever tasted!

Beyond perfect!

Ashfield House was perfect for our wedding day! All staff were amazing throughout the entire planning process and those that were present during the day were exceptional.
The house itself was stunningly decorated, squeaky clean, and suited our needs perfectly, with plenty of space both inside and outside the house. There were so many beautiful spots for our friendly and family to hang out, and for us to have our photos taken.
The chefs were equally out of this world. We asked for specific things not on the menu and they really pulled it out of the bag. Up there with one of the nicest meals we have ever had - let alone wedding food!
Ashfield House went above and beyond continually. We could not recommend more.

The Best Team Ever!

Leanne and the ladies at Ashfield House were absolutely incredible in giving us such a stress-free wedding day! They have been amazing from start to finish. Even on the day, they made sure my husband and I had time to have a private first dance upstairs. That was so special to us as we would have just rushed through the day.

The venue itself is gorgeous and beautifully spacious. Even though it rained, there was lots of room to us all to mingle, play games/quiet space etc and I loved the cosy-feel of all the rooms. Food was amazing and loved by all, would highly recommend this venue!!

Our wedding exceeded our expectations

From the minute we booked with Ashfield House we were incredibly impressed with the level of service we received. We absolutely loved the venue when we attended an open day, so much so that we didn’t look at any other venues and booked on that day! From there the team at Ashfield helped to make our wedding dreams come true. We loved the flexibility of this venue as they went above and beyond to help us make our special day the best day ever, including allowing us to have our dog there (and run down the aisle). If you haven’t already heard it from someone else, the food at Ashfield is beyond amazing. We attended so many weddings this year, and by far Ashfield knocked them all out of the park. We even had our menu tasting like a date night and from that point, whenever we discussed the wedding, we talked about the food. Even when catering for some very tricky dietary requirements all of our guests have also raved about the food and everyone since has continued to rave about it. The organisation of the staff and how smoothly our day ran was also amazing. From arriving in our PJs and settling into the sitting room for hair and make-up the staff looked after us so well and couldn’t do enough to help us. This stunning venue is made all the more amazing by the people who work there and I would recommend Ashfield House to anyone who is searching for the perfect venue.

There is nothing we can suggest for Ashfield house to be made better. Not only did we think this but also family and friends who attended our wedding too. The house had such a homely feel and the guests who stayed also agreed. Ashfield house will always hold a special place in our hearts for creating our dream wedding day. We would highly recommend the venue, not only for weddings but other events too.

I would absolutely recommend Ashfield House - such good value for money! They couldn't do enough for us on our special day with lots of little unexpected extras included! The grounds look amazing in the summer time.

Wedding NYE 2016

We chose Ashfield House as our wedding venue and what an amazing, beautiful day we had. Katie and the staff at Ashfield couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. The food, from the canapés to the wedding breakfast, evening buffet and late night bacon butty was outstanding! All our friends and family commented on how amazing it was! The venue itself is stunning and we can't wait to see our pictures! Myself and my wife would like to thank all the staff at Ashfield for helping to create the most perfect day!
