    Amazing wedding day

    Our wedding at Cockliffe Country House on Saturday 21st August 2021 was a wonderful experience from beginning to end. The staff were excellent, were always available when we needed and worked incredibly hard to ensure everything ran smoothly - we can’t thank them enough, especially Joanne and James. The whole day was really relaxed and all of our guests had a truly wonderful time, as did we. The food was excellent and everyone commented on how much they enjoyed it, the pizzas went down extremely well in the evening.
    Thank you so much for making our wedding a day to remember!
    Mr & Mrs Griffiths

    Cockliffe Country House's reply:

    Butchered a wedding

    From my understanding the venue is under new management so this is an up to date review and doesn't reflect upon the old management.
    Of ALL the formal or even informal events I've attended in my entire life this had to be the worst managed. It's as though they just left the bride and groom keys to the building and left them to themselves.
    People were arriving without a clue were to go without a staff member in sight, eventually a young girl was found and put on the bar but wedding guest arriving from 11am couldn't even get coffee or water, people were arriving parched from driving from all over the country to be told no coffee and I personally waited an hour to get a drink of water.
    By the time the wedding started there were still no staff around and no management, although more staff had arrived they were all young students and although nice they were not the calibre of experienced staff you would expect at a wedding.
    The food was supposed to be served at 3pm, it didn't even start coming out until 4.30 and the quality was shocking, the service shocking, no water on tables, no condiments, some tables waited 3hours for mains, 3hours! Vegetarians were given meat, vegans meat and dairy! The food itself awful, the beef definitely from the day before. Evening guest were arriving to the same horror as day guest with nowhere to go, no bar open, nowhere to sit, whole venue covered in empty dirty glasses that had been piling up all day. I could go on and on... Awful.

    Nichola & Gareth's Wedding

    We got married at the Cockliffe Country House Hotel on Monday 29th October 2018 and had a truly wonderful experience. The staff, in particular, were excellent, so much so that we thanked them during the groom's speech. They worked tirelessly all day to ensure that everything ran smoothly and that the venue was kept clean and tidy. The whole day was very relaxed and a huge part of that was due to the excellent team. They were un-intrusive but always there when needed.
    We hired the whole venue and all our guests who stayed at the hotel loved the elegant, well-equipped rooms. The food, in particular, received high praise from everyone.
    Thanks, Cockliffe Team, you helped make our day one we will always remember.
    Mr and Mrs Baker

    Wedding Venue of our dreams

    We wanted an intimate wedding venue and that is what you get with Cockliffe. All our guests were amazed at how we found it - a real gem. For us, with 50 guests in the day, it was ideal, as all our loved ones were able to spend it with us in this fantastic location. Sue Lees, wedding co-ordinator extrodinaire! We were not disappointed and would recommend this venue as a picturesque place to get married and have a wonderful reception with excellent food. Guests were delighted with the quirky rooms, not one the same. Had a day to remember and it went too quickly. Very envious of anyone who will get married there, wish i could do it all over again!
