Perfect Oasis

We got married here in September 2023, and I couldn't have wished for a better place.
The team were so supportive of anything we wanted.
We wanted a Hindu-style ceremony and prayer, and the team just went with it!
I can't say thank you enough to Coltsfoot.
We had around 60 guests, and it felt like a large family gathering. Guests loved the food and the accommodations are 5 stars.

Amazing :)

We got married at Coltsfoot Country Retreat in October 2023. They were absolutely fantasic. The venue looked stunning and Jenny, Ruth, and Emma went above and beyond for us. No job was too much hassle. The food was fantastic and we had loads of compliments on it from the guests. The team kept us up to date with everything from the time we first showed an interest in the venue. They were very quick at answering emails and questions. We had three agenda meetings leading up to the wedding, and we were given an extensive check list to make sure we had thought about everything, which made the whole process less stressful. On the day of the wedding, they made sure everything ran smoothly and tried to keep it as stress-free as possible for us. The rooms were lovely as well and the breakfast next day was delicious! 10/10, the staff were amazing, I can't praise them enough!!! Thank you guys :)
