What a venue for a wedding!
Venue Service

By Katie Lee, on 10 Jun 2016

My Husband and myself were married here a few weeks ago and had a fantastic experience. The grounds and venue is simply exceptional and gave some beautiful photos. The food was exceptional, we had a BBQ for the evening buffet and would thoroughly recommend this for anyone, there was more than enough food for everyone and my guests praised the food. The rooms are filled with character and not what you would get at any other wedding venue, they were clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated with antique furniture in some. The service from the guest services team was fantastic and more than happy to help taking my elderly grandparents luggage to their rooms and dealing with their every request with a smile. The staff that served the wedding were exceptional nothing was too much trouble and I know I was a pretty demanding bride with very high expectations and they met every single one and more. Our wedding was simply perfect.

Everything was perfect, from the weather, the church service and all the time spent at Dartington Hall- including drinks, photographs, wedding breakfast and the evening reception. Our time staying at Dartington hall was exceptional. The Great Hall was decorated beautifully, it was a fantastic venue and it was a truly great occasion.

Thank you so much for your wonderful organisation for Rory & Rachel's wedding, I can truly say I was 'blown away' by the amazing weekend you gave us all. You & your staff must have worked so hard over the last few months, or probably year to make the day go so well. Everything from start to finish was perfect, from our beautiful rooms to the actual wedding reception - truly magical. Nothing was left to chance & no matter what we asked for your colleagues were always so helpful & couldn't have done more for us. All our family & friends have been raving about Dartington since the wedding, a top venue.

Dear Rebecca (Wedding Coordinator), We're just writing to say an enormous thank you for all your wonderful organisation for our wedding. It was the most perfect day and that was largely down to the great organisation, wonderful welcome and super hospitality at Dartington Hall. We couldn't have wished for a better wedding reception venue and would highly recommend it to anyone. All our friends and family were so impressed with the kindness and helpfulness of staff and of course, the beautiful setting. Thank you so much!

We had the most amazing wedding reception/ evening at Dartington Hall! Everything went smoothly, thanks to the help of our wedding planner Rebecca and all the staff. All of our guests loved the hall and the grounds and have even said they would be coming back to visit. The food was delicious, and exactly like the tasting menu if not better, the size of the portions are big enough for even the larger of appetites. The great hall, private gardens, and bedrooms are all to a very high standard, perfect for any wedding! The bridal suite is particularly romantic! We would definitely recommend Dartington Hall to any Bride and Groom out there looking for a romantic and traditional wedding. We hope to enjoy it as much as we did.

Food was delicious and staff were friendly
Venue Service

By Robert Gordon, on 10 Apr 2013

The wedding went really well, and our guests all commented on how much they enjoyed themselves. In particular two frequent comments from guests were about the food which was delicious and the friendliness of all the staff, from reception, to bar staff and catering. The weather was also fantastic (think we got lucky there!). The Catering Manager was unfailingly helpful throughout the day and the following morning. The Upper Gatehouse and the Great Hall both looked fantastic and helped create the atmosphere we wanted for the day. I think eveyone was extremely impressed with the venue and the bedrooms. All the different parts of the day went very smoothly and we didnt need to worry about any aspect. We would certainly recommend Dartington Hall as a wonderful place to hold a wedding!

Everything we wished for for our wedding
Venue Service

By Samuel Bray, on 10 Apr 2013

We would just like to say a very big thankyou to all the team at Dartington Hall for the way in which they have handled our wedding from start to finish as it was amazing. It was everything we wished for and more and the service was first class.

A truly memorable start to our marriage
Venue Service

By Rosanna Durban, on 10 Apr 2013

We have had so many compliments from all our friends and family both day and evening that loved Dartington Hall and enjoyed themselves immensely - this is so wonderful to hear as makes it even more special to us. They all commented on how kind and helpful all the staff were as well and this was something that we felt right from the word go when we met the wedding coordinator. The catering manager was a star on the day at looking after us and also the wait staff and the ladies in reception - especially the one who helped my Mum sew her dress back when she tore it - in fact all of them were just fantastic. Compliments to the chefs too - the food was fabulous and a real hit with everyone.

The most wonderful day, loved every minute!
Venue Service

By Tim Chatfield, on 12 Feb 2013

My wife and I would like to pass our thanks to you and your team for your amazing customer care to our wedding. We truly had the most wonderful day and loved every minute, I know it sounds silly but we quite often say how we'd love to do it again!! From the moment I first spoke with you in 2012 everything felt right. You were always available to answer questions, reassure us and help with everything we asked or needed. We were so impressed with everything and so thankful for you all playing a part in creating a perfect wedding day for us!! It's also wonderful that we've got such a lovely place we can now visit with family and friends to remember our special day.

I could not recommend Dartington highly enough
Venue Service

By Kellie, on 21 Jun 2012

Thank you for all of your help with our wedding, we had such an amazing day last Saturday - It has been so lovely having your help with all of our wedding planning, you have been so brilliantly efficient as well as so helpful, positive and calm throughout, which was just what we needed! Nothing seemed too much trouble for the staff at Dartington on our wedding day and I couldn’t recommend Dartington highly enough as a venue for a wedding.
