My perfect wedding day!

I am so happy I choose Cantley house hotel, my day was perfect from start to finish. All my visions came to life and Cantley were so accommodating and couldn’t do enough for me. Lara and Diane were amazing on the day, I was very lucky to have them!! Nothing was too much trouble. I had an outdoor ceremony which was amazing. Any request I had, it never seemed a problem. When planning your big day, you can’t go wrong using this venue. I would recommend Cantley to anyone and all my guests would say the same.

Absolutely Amazing wedding venue and team.

have been remarkable, attentive and extremely kind. The menu tasting was a very enjoyable experience and making a final decision was challenging as all the food looked and tasted amazing. The big day itself ran so smoothly, even my other vendors made comments on how smoothly and timely the day ran. The incredible staff attended to our evey need without hesitation and always with a kind, warm smile. They even helped cut the children's food up and helped entertain them between courses. I really couldn't have wished for better and the day went off without a hitch and was very stress free and happy. The stunning hotel got so many compliments from our guest and the photos are beautiful.
The room I got reading in and stayed the night before was big enough to accommodate all my bridal party without us being on top of eachother or cramped. The room service was excellent too.
I cannot recommend the hotel enough and we will definitely be going back for our anniversary.

Very small family wedding at short notice

We had a very small family wedding here in early March which we organised at short notice. It worked out really nicely and were able to host our guests for dinner in a private dining room (Glebelands) and book rooms for everyone to stay over night. Sarah was excellent, helping with the details such as looking last minute for pins for button hole flowers, and Mateusz looked after us beautifully at dinner.

Great Venue even when it is raining outside!

My Husband and I got married last friday at Cantely and the staff where amazing! They truely looked after us. Our Wedding planner, Lara, was amazing from start to finished and guided us through what we needed to do.

The last mintue changes we had did not phase the team at all, and the day went off like a dream.

The venue is great for winter and Spring weddings, last friday the rain just poured down, but that did not hinder the day, as there are loads of great little spots around the venue to get photos done.

The staff made our guest very welcomed on the day and everyone enjoyed the day and evening.

Cantely is a great venue to have everything in one place which made such a dffierence and took the stress out of the day.
You can also as a Bride, book into one of the suits (at a cost), so you can get ready the night before, which again made the day less stressful.

we would definitely recommend Cantley House for a wedding venue, such as day!

Thank you from the Harden's for such a great day!

Perfect Wedding Day

We had our Wedding here in October, we had the most perfect day. The team at Cantley are so helpful, and honestly can't do enough.

The setting here is absolutely stunning, we were lucky enough to get married on a sunny day, which meant using a lot of the outside space. One of the reasons we picked Cantley was because it's an all weather venue - the inside space is just as beautiful as the outside. So if you are someone thinking of getting married outside of our lovely English summer, Cantley is definitely a venue to consider.

Emma was our Wedding Coordinator, she was very helpful and helped me feel at ease during the stress of wedding planning!

The whole team have set a high standard of customer service without feeling over the top and this is something we really appreciated on our special day. The Wedding day ran incredibly smoothly, with regular check ins from the team to ensure we were happy with everything.

Our perfect wedding venue

Fantastic wedding venue, we couldn't have wished for a more wonderful day. The house and grounds are absolutely stunning, the food was amazing, and Emma, Sarah, Jake and their team went above and beyond to make sure our day went smoothly and without a hitch. Couldn't have been happier with our decision to choose Cantley House Hotel for our wedding day.

Our perfect wedding

We had our wedding here in September and it went perfectly for us. The rustic barn is the perfect backdrop for our party of 50 guests. We used the beautiful lawns for drinks with a vintage singer we had hired.
The food was delicious, many good feedbacks from our guests.
At night it was so cosy with the barn, the fairy lights and the lovely courtyard which guests enjoyed too.
We 100% reccommend cantley house for your wedding.

A wonderfully fitting venue for our Wedding Day!

My now husband Nick and I, were married at the Cantley House Hotel in August 2023. We chose the venue because it had the right blend of character, charm and size. We had the day of our lives, what a wedding and what a venue. A big thanks to Lara and her team for organising and delivering for us. We highly recommend the Cantley to any couple wanting a great venue for their special day !

Fantastic wedding day experience

We had our wedding here in August 2023 and we truly had the best day of our lives. Everything ran so smoothly right from booking our wedding up until the day itself. The communication we received was brilliant and nothing was too much trouble for staff to deal with prior to the day and on the day itself. The venue is beautiful, and although we wanted an outdoor wedding, we had our ceremony inside due to weather conditions. I thought this was going to spoil the day but it actually made the day even better than I could have imagined as the oak room is beautiful. Food was delicious and our guests continue to comment was a wonderful wedding it was. Thank you Cantley house!

A perfect venue with staff that care

The venue itself is like a hidden gem, not many of our guests had ever heard of it but were constantly complimenting the gorgeous choice. The grounds are beautiful, from the Georgian Manor House and Briar (barn style function room) to the outside ceremony Bandstand, beautiful courtyard with festoon lights and the bedrooms - it was all just perfect.
The staff were on another level and really care about each wedding they help to coordinate- it really shows. We dealt with Alice, she was just brilliant. During the planning stages, Alice was on top of all of our questions, going above and beyond to make sure we were happy the whole way through. On the day, Alice was there making sure everything ran smoothly. She was on top of all the little touches we’d put together (and there were a lot!) the music was executed at the perfect moments and volume, she did everything possible to ensure our day was everything we had planned.
Dianne, another member of staff who has been there for many, many years (and got married there herself 20 years ago) was also brilliant at making sure the day went smoothly, I can’t tell you how much we appreciate the feeling of being looked after, not having to stress over anything and being able to just let go on the day because the had it all covered. The food was divine! We are massive foodies (it’s literally our life and we own a food business) and so it was a huge, important part of our wedding to have epic food. Compliments to the chefs- they nailed it! We were reviewing so many comments on the day and afterwards about how amazing the food was.
I cannot recommend Cantley House enough, gorgeous setting, impeccable staff, value for money.
We said from the very beginning, the most important thing to us for our wedding day was just to be full of love. We had the ultimate venue for that.

Best wedding ever!

Now, we may be slightly biased, but our wedding at cantley house hotel was the best wedding ever! The staff were incredible- very attentive and helpful and we felt like we were the only wedding they have ever worked (which of course is not the case!) our wedding coordinator Lara was always on hand to help out with all the organising and was very flexible with everything. The food was out of this world! We got so many compliments about the canapés, wedding breakfast and evening food. Was all just perfect! Beautiful venue, highly recommend!

What a Wonderful Wedding

We got married at Cantley in July 22 after having to postpone for two years. Cantley were so supportive throughout the process of postponing and very caring and understandings. In the lead up to our wedding day Lara was always avaliable to answer our crazy questions and so professional. Our big day was everything we could of dreamed of. Every member of staff made our day special. The bar staff were amazing and the wedding team couldn't have done any more of they tried! The hotel, barn and courtyard looked stunning and we were even allowed to bring alpacas! It was sucha beautiful day. Thank you Cantley house!

Fantastic wedding day!

We had our wedding 2nd March at Cantley and throughout had a great experience. From the moment we contacted Cantley, Emma was on hand to support us and answer all our questions, even ones we didn’t know we had, and guide us through the wedding organisation process, even decorating for us on the morning. The day itself went without a hitch, Dianne and Mateus and the team made sure it all went smoothly and made us feel relaxed, even helping pack up the car in the morning. The food was excellent, as was the service and everything was so slick. Our guests commented on how lovely it all was too. Thank you Cantley!

Perfect Wedding Venue for us

The staff were especially amazing, coordinating everything so expertly - particularly the wedding breakfast - the service was wonderful and the food was first class. The Barn looked beautiful, we had over 70 guests, there was plenty room whilst also being cosy. In the evening the Barn was transformed into a party venue and we danced the night away and midnight came too quickly.
