    The most amazing day!

    We can’t thank Karen and her team enough for helping us have the most perfect day earlier this month.

    Ashton Lodge is such a stunning venue and we fell in love the second we saw it. We had so many guests commenting about how beautiful it was on the day too. The weather had always been a worry but the inside is just as lovely as the outside so we felt reassured that we’d get beautiful photographs come rain or shine.

    The whole process was so straight forward and Karen was a real pleasure to deal with. All of our questions were answered so quickly and she was so accommodating. Excellent communication from start to finish.

    As for the day itself, everything ran so smoothly! I loved getting ready in the bridal preparation room (which is so unique) with all of my girls. The ceremony room is gorgeous and I felt like a princess walking down the aisle.

    The canapés and the wedding breakfast were of such a high standard, we couldn’t fault anything and our guests were also impressed. The service was also brilliant!

    Our nights stay couldn’t have been better either. Beautiful rooms and delicious breakfast! We honestly felt like they couldn’t do enough for us.

    Overall, we are so so happy we chose Ashton Lodge for our day and we’d recommend it to anyone and everyone.

    An Amazing Day

    The service we have received from Ashton Lodge has been brilliant, from initial booking to our wedding day. The team have been fantastic, and the service we received on the day is impossible to fault. Staff were very attentive and the whole day ran seamlessly.
    We had so many compliments from our guests on how beautiful the venue was, and how amazing the food was. Our guests with dietary requirements were particularly impressed how well they were catered for. It was an amazing day, and from the feedback we've had from our guests they all enjoyed it just as much as we did!
    Having had to postpone our wedding twice, Karen and the team made it so easy. Thank you Ashton Lodge for making our wedding day so special, we would highly recommend this venue to anyone!

    Our Wedding Was More Wonderful Than We Hoped For

    Every aspect of our wedding with Ashton Lodge was wonderful. Planning is organised to remove any worries and all.yhe staff do everything they can so that your day is just how you would like it.

    Every guest said how delicious the food was, service was impeccable and every single guest said how they loved every single second.

    Ashton Lodge's grounds and interior are just stunning. Even if the weather isn't on your side, there are plenty of areas for lovely photos.

    Our English Pointer was ring bearer and Ashton Lodge welcomed him so wonderfully.

    We wouldn't change a single second of our wedding and Ashton Lodge played a large part.
    Many thanks once again, especially to Karen who is an absolute pleasure to work with.
    Ashton Lodge is worth every penny for the memories you will get to cherish

    Ashton Lodge Country House hosted our wedding in October 2021.

    Ashton Lodge was the perfect venue for our wedding. It’s a beautiful place and we were lucky enough to enjoy an outdoor wedding. We had to reschedule our wedding twice due to Covid- Karen and the team were so helpful with this and made the process as smooth as possible. The whole team were amazing on the day making sure everything ran smoothly. We had so many compliments from our guests on the food! We would recommend this venue for any bride & groom in future!

    Fantastic Venue with Great Staff!!! Highly Recommend!

    We booked to get married at Ashton Lodge in Aug 2020 but due to COVID had to postpone it several times. Karen at Ashton was so helpful and accommodating through every delay and made what was a difficult time a lot easier to deal/cope with. We finally got married in Aug 2021 and had an amazing day - The food was fantastic, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the venue is just beautiful - I cannot recommend it more as a wedding venue and all our guests were full of praise and enjoyed their day as much as we did

    Best day ever

    What can I say about Ashton lodge apart from it being amazing. The venue itself is a absolute knockout and the bedrooms give you a feel that is hard to describe. The privacy that you get is just amazing and anyone lucky enough to have a wedding here will be blown away. The staff are all amazing and the lovely Sarah is everything you could wish for in a host/planner/master of ceremonies, she literally does it all. Nothing was too much of a ask for any of the staff and they all went above and beyond to help me pull my day together at very short notice. The food is a 10/10 and will send everyone home happy and full and the breakfast is amazing. Our day was just spectacular and it's a huge thanks to Ashton lodge and all its staff that we was able to enjoy the fairytale that my wife had always dreamt of. I will be eternally grateful and I can't recommend enough. Nobody will be disappointed.

    Wedding Day

    I would 100% recommended this venue for your wedding. My husband and I got married here in October and we had the best day, the staff from start to finish were amazing. Our wedding planner Sarah went above and beyond making our day stress free. The waiting staff and bar staff were also wonderful. The venue itself is just beautiful, it rained when we got married but had it not the ground would of been perfect for lots of pictures having said this we got lots of pictures inside out gorgeous venue.
    The best venue we loved it

    The perfect wedding venue

    Sarah was always on hand to answer any queries. The venue was fantastic at catering to what we wanted for our wedding day. Their expertise in knowing how to cater, what to cater and how to order and structure your day was invaluable.

    During the months leading up to our wedding, Sarah would always check in to see how we were going, set up the next meeting and provide a detailed schedule as to what had been discussed and decided so far so that everyone was on the same page for the plans for the day. It really helped to keep us on track for what we needed to sort out next.

    They must handle a lot of weddings at any one time but they always knew exactly what our day was looking like and made us feel like we were the priority whenever they were speaking to/emailing us.

    On the day itself, the staff (in particular Natalie) were just outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble, always a smile and great customer service to our guests. The food was delicious - our guests commented to us throughout the day how much they loved the food and the venue. We could just enjoy our day safe in the knowledge that everything was being sorted by Natalie and the staff behind the scenes.

    It was as stress-free as planning a wedding could possibly get!

    The venue itself is stunning and everything you could possibly need/want for a wedding day. It's big and spacious inside so if it does rain on your day then you probably wouldn't even notice.

    Thank you so much for the perfect wedding day. It's a day we will cherish and reminisce about forever.

    Perfect day!

    We got married here in October and the day could not have been more perfect (maybe apart from the weather!)
    From the moment we viewed the venue, we knew we wanted to get married here! The staff were all so helpful especially Sarah, who was amazing with helping to plan the day and answering all my emails very quickly.
    Mel was also amazing running the day and all the staff helped the day run smoothly!
    Many of the guests commented on how lovely the venue was and also how great the food was.
    Would highly recommend this beautiful venue!!

    The most beautiful venue

    We got married here in August and had the best day of our lives. The venue is absolutely stunning and we loved it as soon as we came for a viewing, as did our family and friends when they arrived on our wedding day. The staff are amazing especially Sarah who organised our day and ensured everything ran smoothly and perfectly. Hotel rooms are beautiful and very clean. The food is gorgeous, we had the casual menu with the hog roast and vegetarian options. The staff made sure there was more than enough vegetarian food. The area of grass outside is ideal for children as we have a 1 and a half year old daughter and nephew who were kept occupied through the speeches etc. Overall, we couldn’t have picked a better venue, it was absolutely perfect. Would most definitely recommend.
