Best Decision We Ever Made...
Venue Service

By Becky Wooley, on 23 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 06 Jul 2019

We had our wedding reception at Cantley House Hotel, and it was the best decision we have ever made. Right from the start, Diane and Nadia were excellent. They made us feel so welcome and showed real commitment to making our day the best it could be. They were always so friendly and helpful, responded to any of our queries in very good time, and reassured us when we were worried. They flawlessly catered for all of the complex dietary requirements for our guests (and there were a lot!), and really did go the extra mile to make our day special. It was our perfect wedding reception and we wouldn't have changed anything. We are so thankful for all that Cantley House did for us, and cannot recommend them enough! If we could do it all again, I would definitely still go with Cantley

Our wedding was AMAZING
Venue Service

By Robbie Ferridge, on 23 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 07 Jun 2019

We have recently had our Wedding at Cantley House Hotel and we were left speechless. Every single aspect of our wedding was AMAZING. The staff went above and beyond to make our day very special. Each room was decorated above our expectations and our guests could only comment on how exceptional our Wedding breakfast meal was. We wanted our dog to be part of our special day too and as Cantley house hotel is dog friendly, she was able to be there with us both every minute of the day. A HUGE thank you to Lara and everyone at Cantley, you have made our special day, one we will never forget. See you all for our 1st Anniversary.

More than we hoped.....
Venue Service

By Emma Grist, on 23 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 25 May 2019

We recently held our wedding reception at Cantley House Hotel and it was more than we could have hoped for! Obviously the beautiful hotel and grounds make for a wonderful 'back-drop' for your day - we had drinks and garden games on the lawns and our wedding breakfast in the stunning, rustic Briar Barn. The food was delicious - so many guests commented on it (including one who said it was the best wedding food she'd tasted!) Lara was our wedding planner and nothing was too much trouble. During the planning meetings she helped us to visualise and put together our dream day - her advice and professionalism was second-to-none. It meant that we had total trust and confidence that our day would go to plan (as an event planner myself, it's sometimes hard to put that trust in others!) - we honestly had no worries at any point. The staff on the day were wonderful and really nothing was too much to ask. They helped set up all of our decorations to our 'vision' and everything looked perfect. Overall it was a complete joy to plan and hold our wedding at Cantley and would recommend it to anyone who wants a stress-free, well-organised, beautiful wedding day!

Food & Venue Are Perfect
Venue Service

By Karen & Nigel, on 06 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 20 Oct 2018

We booked our wedding reception and afternoon tea at the hotel. Slightly blessed with a beautiful sunny day in October however from the moment of arrival the staff looked after us, and all our guests,with ease and warmth, even accommodating 3 additional guests at short notice! The food and venue are perfect, the staff couldn’t do enough and made our day extra special, thank you to all of you.

Most Magical Day of Our Lives
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Peploe, on 06 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 05 Oct 2018

Now that we’ve come back down to earth we would like to express our gratitude to everyone at Cantley House for making our wedding day as amazing as it was. From planning the wedding for 12 months with Nadia to making it happen was flawless. They accommodated us in every way possible. The location, food, staff and running of the day was second to none and all of our guests commented on how amazing it was. My biggest thanks goes to Nadia, she is not only amazing at her job but she was there for me at the key moments of the day, an amazing lady who became more like a friend in the end! Also Diane for overseeing the evening reception, she kept it all running smoothly & even helped me load the car up when we were leaving. Thanks again Cantley, you blew our expectations out of the water! Mr & Mrs Peploe x

Thank You For Everything
Venue Service

By Matt & Tracey, on 06 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Sep 2018

The Cantley wedding team delivered everything we asked for and more. Our wedding planner Lara and her wonderful team helped us prepare for the day and then took away all the stress on the day itself through their attention to detail. Lara and Dianne made sure all went smoothly throughout the day and Tony provided excellent service to our top table at our wedding breakfast. The Hotel and grounds were perfectly presented and all our guests, friends and family commented on the beautiful venue, the comfort of the rooms and the excellent standard of service throughout the day. Our evening party in the Briar Barn was a huge success and the Cantley Team managed the change over seemlessly. Thank you for everything; we have recommended Cantley House Hotel to all our friends.

Loved Our Wedding....
Venue Service

By Fiona & Rob, on 24 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Jul 2018

Morning Lara, Now that I’m just about back to earth I wanted to say how much rob and I loved our wedding at Cantley house! It was truly the best day of our lives and this was partly down to how organised you guys were. I can not thank you enough for start to finish it was just brilliant. All staff involved were amazing and you can tell they had our best interests at heart and they were passionate about their jobs and could not do enough for us. Every finer details and quirks were taken into consideration and last minute changes were done so smoothly we didn’t even notice a change. You guys at cantley house are just brilliant! From the moment we came in on Friday to the moment we left yesterday was literally the best few days of our lives. Everyone was so accommodating. Lara, you and Dianne were fantastic, everyone at our wedding only had positive and complementary things to say. The meal was delivered with utter perfection and placed at the right place and my relative who was GF was rejoicing at the fact hers was not only delicious but was delivered to her with everyone else’s. The vegetarians also commented on how their dish was delicious and “not dry” as this can happen in veggie dishes! Everyone said how much they enjoyed their meal. So thank you to the chefs! So many to thank! We would highly recommend other couples to marry at Cantley House and I will be giving your name over. So thank you to you and Dianne and all the staff who made our day extra special. We wouldn’t have had as good a day without you all! It was just amazing!!!

Many guests have since comment how amazing both the venue and the food were. We couldn't thank you enough, love Dan & Archana

It Was Perfect.....
Venue Service

By Jon, on 05 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 06 May 2018

We had our wedding at Cantley House and it was perfect. The staff were extremely helpful and responsive throughout (Lara helped us plan the wedding and was also present on the day itself, and was assisted by Dianne on the day who helped to usher guests around etc). The food was delicious (chicken and ham terrine starter, salmon main, and lemon tart dessert), and was all served at practically the same time without guests having to wait long periods between (as is sometimes the case at weddings). The wine included in the package was excellent. The venue itself is lovely (I would recommend having the evening disco in the outside barn), and it was great that all of our guests were able to stay over and join us for breakfast the morning after (meaning that we didn't have to say goodbye to anyone on the day of the wedding itself). We had around 65 guests and the venue worked well for this size, and all of the rooms (36 I think) were included in the package price. Multiple guests have said to us that the venue, food and service were all excellent. I would definitely recommend.

This Place is Wonderful
Venue Service

By Claire B, on 05 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 05 May 2018

I think this place is wonderful . They did a superb job with our wedding and everything wasn’t too much to ask when you needed something. 5 star service and the rooms were wonderful and very child friendly. We will be having many visits to Cantley over the years now. Very very happy with the service we received.
