Supportive and fantastic day!

Laura was fantastic in helping us through moving our date due to covid, then everything was amazing on the run up to the day and on the day itself! Nothing was too much trouble for anyone, and the venue itself is stunning

Amazing venue, fabulous people

From the day we enquired as to availability to the big day itself we were never disappointed by the service we received. The venue is perfect - plenty of rooms for everyone to stay, the choice to get married inside or out, gorgeous grounds for the perfect photographs, and plenty of space. The staff are amazing; nothing was too much trouble and they made us feel like their only bride and groom (despite us getting married on the bank holiday and finding out afterwards they had 4 weddings in 4 days!) We had around 60 guests stay over and enjoyed a fabulous breakfast the next day and they were all raving about the hotel - the babies even got to enjoy the pool before breakfast. So reasonably priced as well - please do take a look at this fabulous venue.

Nothing is too much trouble

You and your events team were exceptional, from the moment Geoff and I met you Rachel, we just knew we wanted our wedding at Cranage Estate. You were are so lovely, friendly and very professional and nothing has been too much trouble to you or your team, when I have had a question etc. To see you also on our wedding day was lovely. Thank you also for finding a room for Geoff to store his pride and joy in (motorbike). It was such a great touch to have the banqueting manager contact me prior to our wedding day to introduce himself. David - you were Fab and the team you had working on the day were great, again you were all so friendly, professional, and all of our wedding guests commented on you and your team and echoed what we have just said. We really couldn’t have asked for a more special memorable day, and that was down to you and all of the Staff at Cranage Estate.

We are off on honeymoon tomorrow but we just wanted to say a quick thank you for making our wedding day absolutely perfect. From the run up and planning to on the day. You all made it run so smoothly and everything was just as we wanted it to be. We can't thank you enough. Please extend this to all of the staff involved both on the Friday evening and Saturday. Whatever their job was they were great and so accommodating. All of our guests were extremely impressed by the venue and staff as well.
We had the best day! – Jane and Ian, March 2017
