A perfect location for a perfect autumnal wedding

Gorse Hill was honestly a perfect location for us. We got married in the garden suite which was an area just for our wedding day. The trees surrounding were gorgeous and gave us the exact vibe we wanted to create. As a supplier gorse hill were great. They were open to all ideas we had, communicated really well and never gave us a pushy sales pitch we did experience at other venues.
The day of the wedding went so smoothly and all morning hiccups with guest not turning up they made sure the table set up was changed to reflect the new set up. The food was incredible both the wedding breakfast and evening buffet and to this day people still are complimenting how lovely the venue and experience was.
Couldn't recommend Gorse Hill enough and a big thank you to Belinda for taking us through the very special journey of wedding planning!

Wedding August 23

My husband and I got married at gorse hill in august last year. As soon as we drove to the venue I knew this was the place for me. I loved how I could have the ceremony and reception in one place and all guests could park and stay too. From start to finish, Belinda was excellent. Nothing was ever too much trouble and she catered to all of our needs and wants. She provided very helpful advice and we had check ins prior to the wedding which made sure everything went without a hitch.

The venues were beautiful and we received a glass of champagne after the ceremony and a moment of quiet with my new husband which we both greatly appreciated.

The service of food and drink was amazing. Everyone loved the food which can be hard to cater to everyone’s needs and wants but it was amazing. Scott was amazing at informing us of everything and also to keeping the bar flowing. Everything was seamlessly changed into the dance floor as our guests waited in the large garden room and outside area.

Many of my wedding suppliers knew of gorse hill so delivering items and placement was carried out all without any input from myself which is a great help on a happy but stressful morning.

The grounds are stunning and the backdrop made for beautiful wedding photos in the sun as our guests enjoyed a drink and canapé on the veranda.

The provision of rooms to get ready in with my bridesmaids and the breakfast provided on the day of and after was great. Everything was just so perfect.

I could go on and on at this point, a truly beautiful day and perfect start to married life. I would highly recommend to anyone!!

Absolutely wonderful experience!

The team at the hotel, in particular Belinda Willoughby helped make our wedding day on the 4th June 2023, the best day of my life!
Not only did she listen to all of our needs, she had no problem carrying out all our requests and made the day run seamlessly! She always answered my questions, and was always so friendly and accommodating. She even helped calm my nerves on the day.
It was such a wonderful experience from beginning to end. I am so grateful to all the staff that worked so hard to make it the most perfect day.
All of the staff went above and beyond, from the ladies on reception, the bar staff, the waiters, housekeeping, and of course the head chef. I couldn’t fault any of them.
The hotel itself is in an absolutely stunning location, and was clean, comfortable and spacious.
I would absolutely recommend Gorse Hill Hotel, you won’t regret it!

Thanks again for such a wonderful experience, I shall never forget it.

Couldn't have asked for more from our venue or the team. 10/10!

We chose Gorse Hill for our April 2023 wedding as it had the perfect balance of charm and character, social spaces and beautiful gardens as well as plenty of accommodation for our guests, many of whom were travelling from far away. We found the pricings to be very reasonable, including the bar prices (a very important factor!) and the food was incredible. The standard of food served on the day matched that from our tasting, we had such great feedback on how delicious everything was and the portions were generous!
The biggest highlight for me however were the team helping run our day. Everything went so beyond smoothly, we didn't have to worry about a thing, but, when we did have a question someone was always on hand to help us quickly.
We had our ceremony in the mansion house and the evening reception in the function suite and this worked so perfectly for us. We loved being able to make full use of the facilities and not have to re-use rooms. The weather sadly wasn't on our side but there was plenty of outdoor shelter for those that wanted some fresh air which made all the difference, and it never felt too crowded.

Belinda was a joy to work with, I couldn't fault her patience in the lead up to the wedding when I had a million questions and the team overall are a credit to the hotel.

Would get married here all over again!

I cannot express how happy we were to say ‘I do’ at Gorse Hill. I fell it love with it from the moment I saw it, perfect for our occasion! We had seen many venues beforehand and none of them felt right for us. We had booked within half an hour of viewing the venue. We met Belinda a few months after booking and I was so worried that meeting a new planner would cause problems but it did in fact do the opposite, she was incredible. Even down to the moments before walking down the aisle she was professional, helpful and friendly. Would definitely get married here all over again! Can’t wait to come back some time soon!

Beautiful Venue and Brilliant team

We had our wedding at Gorse Hill Hotel in October 2022. We had the most amazing wedding weekend at Gorse Hill Hotel and everything went so perfectly. The team were brilliant on the day but also in the planning stages leading up to the wedding. The venue is beautiful, no request was too difficult for the team and we cannot thank them enough for making our day so special.

Fantastic venue for a wedding would recommend to anyone!

We had our wedding at Gorse Hill in July 2022 and had the best day ever! The staff were amazing and went out of their way for us with anything we needed and great communication throughout the lead up. Numerous guests said it was the best wedding they’d ever been too and said how fantastic the venue was. Amazing wedding food and breakfast too, would recommend to anyone to get married there!!

Our dream day!

The staff were very attentive on the day and throughout the run up to the wedding. We chose Gorse Hill as the buildings and surroundings were beautiful and the grounds are always kept tidy.

We were not restricted to one area we used all the space Gorse Hill had to offer from the welcome drinks on the manor terrace with a saxophone player to the garden for wedding photos then moving into the garden suite for the wedding breakfast and party.

Everything was set up to exactly how we wanted it, Gorse Hill were very attentive to make sure we were not stressed about anything and that everything went smoothly.

Our wedding breakfast was delicious we feel this is one of the important key features your guests remember from your wedding day and we had many compliments to say how lovely the food.

Gorgeous settings, attentive staff and phenomenal service we could not recommend this venue anymore!

Amazing experience from start to finish

An unforgettable wedding day

Gorse Hill surpassed all our expectations as a wedding venue, and we couldn't be happier with our choice.

Our wedding took place in the Garden Suite, a separate building with a marquee and dance floor, which our guests loved. The meticulously maintained grounds were also a great backdrop to all of our wedding photos. Last but not least, the food at our wedding breakfast tasted absolutely incredible and we had so many compliments from our guests about it.

From the outset, the team at Gorse Hill showed professionalism and dedication, making the planning process as stress free as possible. We would like to thank Belinda, our events manager, whose meticulous planning and attention to detail ensured that every aspect of our day was tailored to perfection.

Following the ceremony, Scott took charge, overseeing the remainder of the day and keeping everything running smoothly. His organisation and management behind the scenes ensured the rest of our day went to plan.

We had the most amazing day so we’d like to end by saying a huge thank you to everyone at Gorse Hill for making our wedding so special and memorable!

Best day EVER!

Our wedding day at Gorse Hill was THE best day of our lives which couldn’t have been possible without the amazing work and service of the Gorse Hill team. The day was absolutely flawless and all our guests commented on so many great aspects including the service, food, atmosphere and setting, everything was just perfect. The team are true professionals at what they do!

They have a very clear pricing structure which consists of 3 elements (room hire, day guest package and evening buffet). The hotel rooms are also very well priced if you have lots of guests wanting to stay too.

We really had such a special day which we will never forget and knew we had found something special the moment we came to visit. We cannot recommend Gorse Hill enough.
