    Outstanding!

    We had our wedding here 26th August 2021 after rearranging the date due to Covid! Zoe was incredible the whole time from our first date in 2020 through to our actual wedding day in 2021. No question was too much trouble, and she made the process of getting married her so easy!

    On the wedding day itself, every single member of staff was incredible. A special mention to Sam who is a real credit to the venue and was absolutely outstanding on the wedding day and ensured everything ran smoothly and was incredibly helpful right from the morning all the way through to midnight when the party ended!

    The was insane and the Chef is the nicest man ever! Every single guest loved all the food, from the 3 course meal to the buffet in the evening!

    We also had a private room for breakfast the next day at the venue as we had so many guests stay the night of the wedding! The private breakfast room really finished off the whole experience and really made it extra special for me and partner to be able to enjoy breakfast with all of our wedding guests before their departure!

    I would definitely recommend this venue for any one that wants to get married all in one place and have a lush day that runs smoothly

    Amazing wedding - long awaited

    After having postponed almost 4 times I can honestly say that Audleys Wood have earn’t this amazing review. From the first moment I went to go and view the hotel I immediately fell in love with it. It has all the things I was looking for, a rustic feel with a hotel and a marquee. Unfortunately due to the pandemic we, like many other couples had to postpone multiple times - but the communication from the hotel was second to none, no issue was too big with almost daily e-mails from the team.

    Our co-ordinator Charlotte kept us informed and up to date of all changes and it was a pleasure to meet and feel like she was genuinely excited to help us plan our big day. They were incredibly flexible with all our date changes and ensuring we could have the wedding of our dreams.

    The staff were soo helpful in assisting the set up that the day went soo smoothly - my only criticism - I felt that it went to quickly 🤣. All our guests commented on the hotel and the rooms. The food was amazing and they even made sure that my Husband and I were provided welcome drinks and nibbles that the rest of the guests had whilst we were busy having pictures taken.

    Everybody was soo helpful in particularly at check out the next day when my Uncle - who is terminally ill was not well enough to check out on time - they extended his room at no extra charge.

    I would do it all again without a second thought and I wouldn’t have changed a thing about the hotel or staff. I can’t wait to see my pictures. We will definitely be returning on our anniversary for a meal and overnight stay.

    Myself and my husband finally had our big day on 29th July 2021 and were lucky enough to get married at Audleys Wood hotel.
    Unfortunately it wasn’t a straight forward experience due to the COVID 19 pandemic; we were originally supposed to have our wedding day on 30th July 2020 but of course this wasn’t meant to be. This was obviously a stressful time but it was made so so so much easier by the amazing staff at Audleys wood hotel, in particular our wedding coordinator Neal who was there to answer any questions we had and provided us with reassurance every step of the way.
    I cannot thank Neal enough for helping to make our wedding possible and for keeping us both so calm and reassured throughout the whole process.
    The wedding day itself was absolutely perfect, our guests were extremely impressed with the beautiful venue and could see exactly why we fell in love with it. However, the main comments were regarding the staff, they were truly amazing! Nothing was too much trouble, they were all approachable, friendly and played such a huge part in making our day so perfect! A special thanks to Kai for going above and beyond, for being so friendly and super helpful! Also, a huge thank you to the wonderful chef for the beautiful food, the waiting/bar staff and of course the amazing manager on the day (whose name escapes me, sorry!!)
    Our toastmaster Dave (whose services were included in our wedding package from the hotel) was also incredible throughout the day and worked tirelessly to ensure the day ran smoothly, Dave you’re a star!
    All in all, we cannot recommend Audleys wood enough and are very grateful to them for giving us the best wedding day we could have hoped for.

    Perfect day anyone could have wished for!

    We could not have wished for more on our wedding day.

    We booked our wedding at this beautiful venue 4 years ago and during the whole process, we were looked after and listened to throughout our journey.

    Our wedding day was better than we could have ever imagined. Staff were so helpful with all our guests and nothing was too much to ask. Our grandmother is disabled and staff went above and beyond to help.

    The venue set up everything on the day so we did not have to lift a finger which allowed for us to have such a relaxed and stress free wedding. We could not recommend Audleys Wood more - anyone looking for a venue should definitely consider it as you won’t be disappointed!

    Rooms were spacious, clean and allowed for such a good night sleep too!

    We will be back for our anniversary each year for sure!

    Thank you for all that you have done for us, we will never forget this day!

    Absolutely amazing experience - from start to finish!

    I would recommend Audleys Wood to any couple looking to get married. From the day we booked our first visit in November 2018, until our big day (fourth time lucky) on July 3rd, they have been absolutely incredible. Neal from the wedding team is so responsive, helpful and on top of everything all of the time. I must have sent him hundreds of emails over the last few years. Absolutely nothing is too much trouble, they made us feel so special on our wedding day and during the entire planning process. They were so accommodating during the pandemic, when we moved our wedding three times. Every single staff member is welcoming, helpful and lovely. The venue itself is stunning, the rooms are gorgeous and the food is out of this world. We cannot thank all of the staff at Audleys Wood enough, and we will be back for dinner very soon! Couldn't recommend the venue more highly.

    Our Amazing Day!

    From our first meeting with Audley's Wood we knew we chose the perfect venue for us. The team are amazing and were always on hand to answer a query or keep us updated on the ever changing world of weddings during covid-19. Audley's Wood kept not only us but our suppliers up to date with the lead up to the wedding in regards to what could or couldn't be done, and accommodated our requests where possible beyond our expectations.

    Originally our wedding was planned for February 21 but with covid-19 this had to change and Audley's Wood were there to make that change as smooth as possible. Our wedding day moved to May 21 and it was perfect. Neal in particular was great when we met to finalise the day. No question or query was too much for him to answer or action he was on hand all the way to the day itself. The food was delicious, all our guests loved it. The staff were great and so attentive. The venue and its setting were great for guests to mingle outside and enjoy the sunshine with a glass or two of bubbly.

    For that one day it was like covid-19 didn't exist and we were celebrating us, our wedding and our love with our family and friends. I'd highly recommend Audley's Wood to anyone looking for a venue for their wedding, can't fault them!

    Perfect day from start to finish

    Honestly would not have changed a thing about our day at Audley’s Wood! The staff were absolutely amazing throughout and really made our day perfect, nothing was too much trouble for them. Zoe was so helpful in the lead up and made us feel at ease that everything was in hand for our big day. With COVID we had to cancel once and Zoe could not have been more helpful.

    The venue itself is gorgeous, we received so many compliments from our guests. We chose the conservatory room to get married and it was just perfect, the detailed ceiling just gave the venue such a great feeling and as soon as we saw it we knew it was for us! The Food was excellent quality and the rooms again were lovely. Highly recommend everything about this venue and couldn’t fault a thing about our day.

    What a venue!

    We could not fault Audleys Wood Hotel as a couple planning their wedding! Through covid uncertainty, postponements and all the regular stresses of organising a wedding, Charlotte and the team were nothing but incredible. Communicative, reassuring, encouraging and provided a faultless service!

    Not only is it a beautiful venue it felt intimate without being small, every space has character and charm and the conservatory and garden pavilion (as well as the grounds) were perfect for an all day celebration!

    Nothing was too much hassle and tooo managing suppliers cmpletely off of our plate. It really was pretty effortless.

    The suites are beautiful and we all loved getting ready with so much space in the morning! The food is delicious too and all our guests said so!

    The whole day was amazing and we couldn't have asked for more from the Audleys team. Not just on the day but in the 2 year run up!

    A million thank yous and we would 200% recommend for any future couples!

    Perfect wedding!

    We have recently got married at Audleys Wood hotel and would really recommend the venue to everyone! We chose Audleys because I loved the conservatory room, the beautiful ceiling makes it a bright and beautiful room, and because it was important for us, having guests coming from all over, that there were rooms at the venue.
    We booked the venue last year, but even though our planner changed a couple of times in that period, we were never concerned about communication, someone was always available to talk to us about any queries we had, and made sure that we went into the day with everything prepared.
    The actual day was wonderful, the staff worked really hard to make sure that everything went perfectly to plan, helped by the toastmaster, who was arranged through Audleys and was fantastic. We had beautiful canapes served during the drinks reception, and the afternoon tea, evening buffet and midnight baps were all delicious and beautifully presented!
    I'm just sad its all over, want to do it all again!

    We had our wedding day at Audleys Wood at the beginning of September and we can honestly say it was the most perfect and best day of our lives so far. We cannot recommend Audleys Wood enough. The venue from the beautiful conservatory ceremony room which is very chapelesque and takes in an amazing amount of sunlight, to the reception drinks on the lawn around the gazebo, to the garden pavillion located privately surrounded by trees was simply amazing. The lighting for the evening around and within the pavillion set the perfect atmosphere for the wedding reception and the music didn't have to finish until 1am. After that we were able to carry on in the hotel bar. The food was delicious too. Whilst mingling with our guests between courses we noticed everyone's plates completely clean and so many guests told us it was amazing food. All of the staff were wonderful. Anne-Marie our wedding planner made everything easy going and worry free leading up to the big day. On the day Michael worked with one of our groomsmen acting as Master of Ceremonies and organised the day perfectly. We were even introduced to Eduardo our chef for the day who was also lots of fun as well as being incredibly skilled. Along with the staff I have mentioned everyone else was also fantastic too. Although we are going to be biased when describing how perfect our day was since it was our wedding, we have actually had quite a few guests telling us it was the best wedding they had been to, which, in no small part, was also helped by Audleys Wood.

    Amazing venue

    From the moment we visited Audleys Wood, we loved the venue; the gardens and pavilion were beautiful and the ceremony room had lovely high ceilings. All the staff were kind and welcoming and we felt no pressure to book at any time which we really appreciated with all the stress of deciding on the venue. Our wedding coordinator, Anne-Marie, arranged regular meetings helping us keep on track of our planning and providing an opportunity to resolve any issues or questions we had.
    We had a perfect day - everything went smoothly, the food was amazing and everyone had a great time.

    Most amazing day

    Kevin and I had the most amazing day Friday 26th July 2019 when we got married in the garden at Audleys Wood. With Anne-Marie's detailed planning, Mark and the team did a wonderful job during the whole day and evening. We had fantastic weather and even with the Wedding Breakfast in the Restaurant and evening party & dance in the Pavilion, it all went really smoothly. All our guests have only great things to say about all the staff, overnight stay and the food was fantastic! We can warm heartedly recommend Audlys Wood. You will be very well looked after!

    A wonderful venue for a wedding large or small

    We found Audleys Wood on this site, and after making initial inquiries, including a visit, we quickly decided this would be the perfect venue. It is outstanding value for money, with wonderful buildings and grounds, helpful and friendly staff and sumptuous food!!


    We held our service and wedding breakfast in the conservatory, and it was just a magical setting. There was a wide menu to choose from, and the standard of food was outstanding. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, not just to the bridal party, but to all of our guests too.


    The evening reception was an absolute blast, again with plenty of food and drink, space inside and out; I have never danced for so long in my life!


    We found it very useful to have all the days events at the same location and there was ample space in the hotel for our guests and good travel links for those that couldn't stay.
