Thank you what a Perfect Day, Perfect Venue, Perfect Hosts, Perfect Wedding Planner. Thank you so much xxx

Magical Weekend
Venue Service

By Holly & Neil Evans, on 01 May 2019Date of Wedding - 06 Apr 2019

Rebecca and the team at Drakestone House really gave us a magical weekend to remember. From the moment Neil and I drove up the driveway we knew it was a place we wanted to get married at. Having your own experienced wedding planner really helps take the stress out of the planning and the day itself. The Country Marquee company that supplied the marquee and all the other bits were brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone was so friendly. Trev who is their onsite help was brilliant from making us cups of tea whilst setting up the marquee to making sure all was OK throughout the evening. This Venue really is like no other venue we have been to. So many extras touches which made us and our family and friends feel so special. We loved the fact that we had a blank canvas to make our own visions come true and that we were able to use our own suppliers. All with the support of the Drakestone House Team. Our Family & Friends were blown away by the house, views and gardens. We couldn't of had a better day, it really was perfect. Neil & Holly

Venue Service

By Roxanne Pollard & Alex Didcott, on 22 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Sep 2018

Wow well I don’t even know where to begin. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. From start to finish everything just came together and in our opinion it couldn’t have gone any better. I just wish I could have paused time as the whole day flew by. We can’t believe that the first venue we viewed and fell in love with could end up being so perfect. The house and marquee looked amazing in the day and night. All of our family really enjoyed being able to spend the whole weekend together in the house and celebrate bringing our two families together. Thank you Rebecca for everything you did to help us before and during the wedding, we really appreciate it. So many people commented on the beautiful venue and the really helpful staff that ensured everything came together smoothly. I am sure this wouldn’t have happened without your help. Please pass on our thanks to Trevor for helping us in the evening and during set up. Also, please can you pass on a thank you to Kate and Richard for allowing us to have such a memorable wedding in their beautiful home. Allowing us to be able to have Sky during the day meant so much to us and you wouldn’t believe how happy we were to find out that we could bring her.

Hi Kate, Just a quick note to say Thank You for letting your beautiful house to us. Our New Year break was really lovely, comfortable, spacious and clean. Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were and depspite so many of us being together in one house, we never felt we were on top of each other. The Sky Q was a nice touch for a rainy day films and of course New Year football. Your Kicthen is sociable for everyone and perfectly equipped for everyone. We would definitely recommend you!

Amazing property and wonderful service throughout
Venue Service

By House Rental, on 19 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 31 Oct 2017

We hired the house for my husband’s 40th. There was actually enough room for 15 adults and 9 children under 8 (including cots). The photos don’t do the property justice, it is stunning and the grounds are immaculate. The loft room was perfect as a dormitory for the kids. The owners were so helpful and we had a truly memorable time. Thank you we will definitely be back! Thank you for a lovely stay
