I wanted to send a quick note of thanks for everything that you and the staff at the Devonshire Arms did for us this weekend! The day was perfect, we and our guests had a fantastic time. Liz an Tom kept us on time (no easy feat) and Katie was so kind to come to my room to put my hair up(which lasted the entire day!) Thanks again, and we'll send a proper thank you shortly

Exceptional Service
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Neil Kimberley, on 19 Jan 2009

My husband and I met and married in 33 days. With very little time to plan such an event 15 days from our engagement to our wedding on April Fool''s Day we turned to The Devonshire Arms at Bolton Abbey. The events team were superb and the actual day was run like clockwork. Unfortunately the unscheduled dense fog meant that the Gazelle Helicopter that the events team had put us in touch with was unable to fly us home but the team at the hotel made sure we weren''t without special transport and within an hour and a half a fabulous vintage Jaguar rolled into the car park to whisk us off home. Ours was a very small, intimate wedding with only 8 guests and The Devonshire made our day perfect. We have now been married for four years and each year we return to The Devonshire for our wedding anniversary.

"Everything went exactly according to plan"
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Clarke, on 08 May 2007

On behalf of my wife and myself could I just express our many thanks to you and all your colleagues for the arrangements for the Wedding Reception last Saturday. Everything went exactly according to plan and everybody seemed to enjoy themselves very much. We would like this made known to the staff concerned and would like to participate to pass on our thanks to Adam for his running of the evening. It was very much appreciated.

Best day, best venue
Venue Service

By Joanna Pritchard, on 26 Jul 2002

4 years ago we decided to get married and we were looking for a luxury venue which wasn't too ostentatious - an oxymoron? No - we found the perfect place at the Devonshire Arms. Friends and family were all able to watch us wed, then eat and party without moving from one venue to another. Family were comfortable and friends from London (where luxury hotels are two a penny)complimented us on our choice. The hotel is beautiful, no metal legged chairs here (my most important criteria in my search for a venue)! Completely decked out with wonderful finery. The rooms were a little pricey but considering each room is unique with its own theme it was well worth it, and we got the Bridal Suite free on the Wedding night. To cap it all the hotel is set in the middle of the dales, 0.5 miles from Bolton Abbey. This special place is somewhere we will return to often. Plus the bar is great!
