    Five Star Venue

    We booked our wedding with Cantley very quickly after speaking with Nadia, we knew it was the venue for us. Not only did it have everything we wanted but the people there was all so so helpful and lovely.

    with all the changes of Lockdown our wedding, like most weddings in 2020, changed a lot. Cantley were so great as discussing options with us and making changes as and when. in the end Cantley were able to turn our wedding around in less then a week so we could go ahead with a micro wedding on our original date.

    Cantley has a lot of charater and history within the venue. There are a range of packages for all budgets and they were very flexible with changes. Nadia and her team will go above and beyond for their couples, even in a global pandemic!

    Thank you Cantley for a wonderful day!

    Could not have been happier with our venue choice

    We had our wedding here and couldn't have been happier with our venue choice. The whole day was wonderful and we felt so well looked after. Lara supported us in all of our planning for the day and both her and Dianne did a great job looking after us during the wedding.

    All the other staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful - special thanks to Jake and Bonnie who were amazing in the evening and took care of all of us, following on from Dianne who was fantastic and who we felt so at ease with. The staff here are great, and the food was amazing

    Thoroughly Recommend

    We had our wedding reception here back in October. From the first time we visited and met with Nadia in particular, we knew we were in safe hands and could trust them to help organise our special day. Nadia was fantastic with the organising and planning and was able to organise meetings to fit around our busy work schedules, She was also always available to answer my numerous questions promptly by email.

    On the day itself, the staff were fantastic. A special mention goes to Dianne and Nadia, nothing was too much to ask and they went above and beyond to make sure everything went to plan. The food was delicious and we had many compliments from our guests. The Briar was the perfect space for the intimate wedding breakfast and the ceilidh we wanted. The accommodation was fantastic too and many of our guests who stayed before and after the wedding have said to me how lovely the rooms were. We are so glad we picked Cantley House and I would thoroughly recommend it as a hotel and wedding venue.

    All our guests had a lovely time

    We had our wedding day here a few weeks ago and we honestly couldn’t fault the day and evening.

    From start to finish, Nadia, Dianne and the team were so accommodating, they really looked after us!

    I was so laid back on the morning of the wedding because everything was in their safe hands and I just felt relaxed.

    The wedding breakfast food was delicious and all the bedrooms were clean and well presented.

    All our guests had a lovely time and were so complimentary of the venue. It’s such a beautiful place and really does have that ‘homely’ feel.

    Thank you again for all your hard work, we just wish we could relive the day!

    The most perfect wedding

    I cannot even begin to describe how beautiful this hotel is! We had our wedding there on Sunday and it was absolutely perfect. Nadia was amazing and made the whole experience of planning the wedding a breeze. All the staff were so helpful and amazing and the food was sensational. Thank you all so much for helping us have the most perfect wedding

    Best Decision We Ever Made...

    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

    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.....

    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!

    Most Magical Day of Our Lives

    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

    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....

    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!!!

    It Was Perfect.....

    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.
