An incredible venue
We were married at Combermere Abbey in April of this year, and from the minute we first stepped in the venue, we knew that it was everything we wanted for our wedding day.Sent on 01/11/2019
It is a beautiful venue, with a true English country garden feel. A little off the beaten track, but close enough to everything you need to plan a perfect wedding day. The courtyard cottages are absolutely ideal for having guests stay on site - great accommodation, and excellent value considering the quality.
Diane, Ashleigh and the rest of the wedding team were absolutely amazing, and went above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly. The accommodation team - both at the cottages and in the North Wing - made sure our guests had everything they needed throughout the stay. The estate team work so hard all year round to keep the gardens looking immaculate. We also have to give a special mention to Sarah and her family, who have put so much time, love and money into the Abbey and the whole estate, to create a true gem of the English countryside.
Whether you're looking to plan your wedding, or just somewhere to stay for the weekend, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Combermere Abbey.

Everything went perfectly
Son and daughter in law's wedding. Beautiful setting for a wedding. Everything went perfectly. The cottages are so homely and comfortable. The glass house and pavilion so unique for the ceremony and reception. I would love to come back for a long weekend. I have nothing negative to say. Combermere surpasses all expectation.Sent on 16/03/2018
