Facilities and Capacity

Hilltop Country House is a stunning 17th-century manor house that is dripping with ivy. This fresh, verdant backdrop will frame your outdoor ceremony, which can be held on the Terrace.

If you're planning a smaller, more intimate gathering, the Garden Room, which can hold up to 68 people, is a great choice. The house also has a luxurious bridal suite and three en-suite bedrooms for your guests. The rooms are all immaculately appointed to ensure that your experience is flawless from beginning to end.

Services Offered

The Best day of our lives

The Best day of our lives happened on the 20th May 2023.

It all started on the 23rd Jan 2022 when I attended an open day with my neighbour and fell in love with Hilltop!

Right there and then I knew our Wedding had to be here, my now husband had never even seen it and trusted my judgement. Obviously I eventually brought him over and he saw in an instance what I saw on that day in January.
It was Clare who made our dreams come true, without her guidance and caring nature we may never have chosen Hilltop.
We want to thank Clare, Iain, Cameron, DJ Emil and the amazing team at Hilltop for making our day that extra bit special.
Clare also recommended an amazing photographer Joe Gardner (his photos are attached) who happened to be her son, he knew all the secret spots to get the greatest photos and stayed with us until 11pm.
We promise we will be back over soon for a catch up and a brew.
Many thanks and Best wishes

Perfection

I don't know where to start with the words to begin and describe how amazing this venue and the team who run it are!

On our first visit to Hilltop we fell in love with the surroundings, the gardens, the views, the house, the marquee….just EVERYTHING. We loved the homely and family run nature of the business.

We subsequently got married at Hilltop late February 2023 and could not have asked for a more perfect venue. Our day was just fabulous from start to finish and Clare and her team could not have been more accommodating or on hand whenever we needed guidance. Clare was incredible and went out of her way to tailor our wedding to make it how we wanted it and was always on hand whenever we needed her.

The day couldn’t have run more smoothly, the team went above and beyond on every aspect to make our day just magical. Our guests cannot stop talking about the venue, the party and the food! Chef Iain made changes to the menu to accommodate everyone, and we really did feel like the menu had been made just for us.

The bar, variety of cocktails on offer (thank you to the staff!) and boogie room were all great and everyone has commented on how amazing the entire venue and atmosphere was.

We have created some incredible memories which will remain with us forever. There is a reason Hilltop has been voted the best wedding venue in Cheshire, we cannot recommend it enough! 5*******

Beautiful exclusive venue in the Cheshire countryside

A beautiful venue with wonderful staff. The process was made easy by Clare, Hilltop’s co-ordinator, who has a wealth of experience in weddings. The food was fantastic - one guest said the best wedding food they’d ever had! All the staff the day of the wedding were extremely welcoming and ensured the day went smoothly. Thank you much!

Stunning venue with excellent members of staff

We had our wedding reception at Hill Top in September 2022. From speaking to Clare on the phone and having a look around the venue we immediately fell in love with the place. Clare and the team are excellent, really helpful, nothing was ever an issue.
Iain the chef was open, honest and gave advice to how the menu in his opinion would be as we wanted to go around the menu.


The gardens are well maintained and in general beautiful.


Everything about Hill Top was excellent, couldn’t fault anything at all. It’s a shame we cant re-live that day as one of best days of our life’s helped out by all the team. 👏👏

Can we do it again?

We loved Hilltop so much! Everyone was so helpful, accommodating, flexible, supportive. And how important is it on the day! Starting from the breakfast in the room…they are professionals and also amazing people. They will make it the best day for you, they just know how. I wish we could do our wedding every year! :) Thank you!

The perfect day, at the perfect venue

We fell in love with Hilltop as soon as we saw it. Clare and the whole team were so supportive of our many date changes (due to covid) and made the process so smooth for us.

The planning felt seamless both beforehand and the management of it on the day, and we loved being able to have a completely bespoke menu, Iain was a pleasure to work with on the food choices.

On the day everything went perfectly, we got ready at the venue, went to church and then returned for our reception. Our guests all commented on how beautiful the venue was . The flow of the day was really smooth, something that was very important to me, as I’ve been to many weddings where it’s felt disjointed being pushed out of a room and into another, changing the atmosphere of the day.

The bar was great and boogie room was perfect for our band and big party, leaving a quieter environment for the family in the marquee and outside was great to suit everyone’s needs.

We loved the venue and couldn’t have asked for more for our special day.

The Perfect Day

From the moment I picked up the phone to the venue last year I knew this was going to turn into something special. The day was exactly as we envisioned it to be. From start to finish Clare made the planning and organising of our wedding day easy and relaxed. Her extremely kind and calm nature meant we could steer clear of any panic or worry, and I’m so grateful for that. Nothing was ever too much trouble.

The day itself ran like clockwork and we felt like guests rather than hosts - just as was promised. Despite the typical British weather, the beautiful house, gardens and marquee provided the perfect backdrop for us to celebrate with our nearest and dearest.

Iain and Cam outdid themselves with the food and drinks, and Emil did his job excellently too. All of our guests were extremely happy with only positive things to say.

It was a day we’ll never forget, and for that we can’t thank Hilltop enough.

Our wedding of dreams 🤍


We had the best wedding day of our lives at The Hilltop Country House on 05.08.23 🤍🤍🤍 the most beautiful venue, grounds & setting for our wedding day ❤️

From the outset, Clare & the Hilltop team were absolutely wonderful, they were so kind, they listened to us every step of the way, gave us brilliant advice & they were so supportive about all our thoughts & ideas for our wedding day 🤍

We are thrilled that our wedding dreams came true at The Hilltop Country House & we want to thank them from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day so special & truly memorable 🤍

Hilltop Country House - Sam and Samantha

A perfect and beautiful venue. We cannot recommend Clare, Olivia and the rest of the amazing team enough. From first viewing to the last dance, they made sure it was the perfect day for us and accommodated our every wish. Food was exquisite, the settings were perfect and the day ran faultlessly. We could not have asked for a better wedding.

Pritchard wedding 1/10/22

Firstly my husband and I would like to thank the hilltop for a truly special day that we will cherish forever.
It was the only wedding venue we visited, we knew as soon as walked up to the house, met Clare and Martin that this was our dream venue.
On the day everything was perfect, we didn’t have to worry about a thing.
A lot of our guests said it was the best wedding venue they have been to.

So once again, thank you Clare, Martin and all the hilltop team for the most perfect day.

Lynch Wedding - Wonderful Day!

On behalf of my son and new Daughter in Law I just had to say what wonderful day of celebration we had at Hilltop! The house and grounds are stunningly beautiful, and the service could not have been more efficient, or carried out with any more grace. The food all day was delicious. Every care was taken to look after us all beautifully. and we all had an absolutely lovely day. Thank you all at Hilltop! Just very sad it’s all over!

The happiest day of our lives.

We got married in July at the magical Hilltop. Our wedding was just perfect.
The house,garden and the marquee are looking more beautiful than ever and the outdoor bar and pizza oven are such an amazing addition.

Clare looked after us so well and calmed any nerves we had in the build up,she is immensely organised and clearly treats each wedding with great care and pride. I cannot praise her enough.

I must also, like every one of my friends that I have seen since we married say how incredible the food was, they have all repeatedly mentioned how much they loved it. Iain is an amazing chef.

We were thrilled with the bar wonderful service and such a wide variety of choice and we loved having our own personalised wedding cocktail, such an charming individual touch to our wedding day.

We recommend Hilltop Country House so highly. Your wedding is one of the biggest and most important days of your life and when you marry at hilltop it will be the day you’ve both been dreaming of.

Absolutely wonderful!!!

Words can’t express how wonderful Hilltop is! As soon as I walked in I knew it was the place for us. Clare, Martin and the rest of the staff were just amazing they really looked after us through out the day and in the lead up to the wedding. Everything was so personal and Clare was always at the end of the phone whenever I had last minute questions. A brilliant venue run by a wonderful family. Thank you so much!

Quite simply fantastic

We cannot speak highly enough about our whole experience at Hilltop Country House. It’s a family run business and you really feel welcomed by every member – its a lovely, seamless dynamic. Clare and Martin were simply wonderful from the start to the end. The made the experience fun and took away any stress – this came through in the relaxed nature of the wedding. We were concerned that it would be cold in the marque having it at the start of January but I can assure you that this was not that case – the temperature was spot on. Iain cooked a fantastic meal, you wouldn’t have known that he was doing it on mass, every piece of lamb was perfectly pink and we got so many compliments. They also catered amazingly for those who are vegan (again multiple compliments about the vegan curry) and those with food allergies. The bar staff were super friendly and it was a big bonus them being able to make proper cocktails including decaffeinated expresso martinis for those who treasure their sleep! The boogie room worked perfectly as it allowed the elder generation to chat in the marque meaning that they stayed to the bitter end. A handful of us were able to stay over at the venue meaning those with children could put them to bed in the knowledge that they would be safe whilst they continued to party. It was an added bonus having breakfast with those who stayed over allowing us to reminisce about the night before.
One added benefit was Martin giving us a memory stick at breakfast with additional photos that he had taken throughout the day to tide us over until we get the official photos. Massive brownie points for that thank you!

Couldn't have asked for a nicer wedding if I tried

From the very first moment my now wife and I turned up half an hour late to our appointment to have a look around the venue, muddied boots and all, both Martin and Clare bent over backwards to accommodate our wishes (including hosing down my boots without even being asked) for what has been widely regarded by both our families as the "best wedding they've have in the last decade and a half", which is no mean feat!

Our wedding had some fairly extensive customisation options, which other venues may have balked at; not so at Hilltop, who actively helped with the arrangements we proposed. Additional thanks are necessary for Iain, the head chef (a true master of his craft), along with all the remaining bar and serving staff, who were all especially friendly and approachable, not to mention patient with us as the night led up to the early hours. Our only regret is that we didn't learn all their names to thank them more personally. Daisy's breakfast the following morning was very enjoyable, too.

All this at a lovely location, at a very reasonable price. I was impressed from the moment Martin greeted us, and I'm very happy to say, it only got better as time went on. We're almost sad we can't get married there again! It was simply a perfect day, and we couldn't ask for more. Two very happy newlyweds here, with some extremely fond memories looking back. :)

Thank you all very much indeed,
Ashley & James

P.S. Apologies for the typo of Iain's name on the TripAdvisor post, now edited above, Whoops!
