The Perfect Day
In just 3 weeks, the lodge managed to create the best day for my husband and I, even during covid. The food was incredible, the venue beautiful, and the hosting was especially amazing. They constantly checked on me before and catered to all our needs, and on the day, were phenomenal. I would 100% recommend this location.Sent on 23/06/2021

The Perfect Space
'It was so easy to get in touch and a pleasure to chat with Catherine about our ideas. She helped us sort out all the details, took on our last minute ideas and was so helpful with any complications.Sent on 15/08/2019
The food and drink was delicious, it was hard to choose what we wanted on the day even having had our menu tasting beforehand (which was such a treat). We definitely feel we got value for money and our guests really enjoyed their meal.
The rooms were spacious and comfortable and being in the Cathedral grounds was lovely and quiet after dark. The staff were super helpful in organising accommodation for those staying in the venue and I can't fault the breakfasts and general service.
The venue was the perfect space for our wedding and the staff were so helpfully on hand when we needed them. Danielle was so organised in keeping things moving when our timeline inevitably changed throughout the wedding day and I had no worries that everything would go smoothly. Thank you to everyone who helped us; we had the perfect day!'

We loved Every Moment!
We had a absolutely wonderful wedding day, we loved every moment. Staff were so attentive, hardworking and friendly we felt so well cared for! Many of my family mentioned that the event ran smoothly, that the food was delicious and staff very helpful and friendly. Even down to making sure my sister had tea/ coffee while she was out practicing for her performance. It just felt so personal, thank you!Sent on 10/09/2019
