Absolutely wonderful!!!
Venue Service

By Ciara Jones, on 22 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Jul 2019

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
Venue Service

By Emma & Michael, on 11 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 05 Jan 2019

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
Venue Service

By Ashley and James, on 30 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 26 Oct 2018

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!

A perfect day without the stress
Venue Service

By Mike and Lynn, on 30 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 30 Sep 2018

We found Hilltop by chance while looking for a venue for our wedding. Clare and Martin were so welcoming when we first went to visit and it was immediately clear to us that these were people who knew exactly how to host a perfect wedding, and with a stunning house and marquee for the venue, with so much experience to share about how the venue has been used before and what it lends itself best to. The house is not only stunning but it also has incredible views for the backdrop to photos and has complete privacy for your special day. On the day they both made everything run so smoothly, even when things arose that could have made us want to pull our hair out, including rescuing a stranded relative from the station when their taxi let them down. They had a calming presence that reassured us that all was in hand. They were even happy to wait to the last minute to decide if the ceremony would be indoors or outdoors as we had been hoping for if the weather permitted; we had our ceremony on the beautiful garden terrace surrounded by all our friends and family thanks to their patience. The food was absolutely top notch, there was such a range of choice, and everything we tried at our tasting was a contender for our menu. So many of our guests praised how much they enjoyed the food and great portion sizes (no one wants to celebrate on an empty stomach!). Everyone who works at Hilltop attends to every little detail and are effortlessly polite and make the day go so smoothly. Our wedding day would not have been half as special had it not been at Hilltop.

Do not look anywhere else for your wedding Venue!!
Venue Service

By Elizabeth and Stuart Air, on 14 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Sep 2018

We cannot thank the Gardner Family enough for their incredible support, dedication and professional attitude whilst remaining genuinely caring and personal in all our dealings with them. From our initial meeting Claire, Martin and family, made us feel at ease and nothing was too much trouble for them to help turn our vision into a reality for the big day. Hilltop is also a beautiful home and it was a privilege to be able to hold the best day of our lives at such an amazing, picturesque venue. The catering was first class, service was professional and smooth and it enabled us to have our perfect wedding, and thoroughly enjoyable day. If you want a stress free wedding, in a perfect setting totally supported by the most lovely family we have had the pleasure of meeting, then look no further.

Could not have asked for better
Venue Service

By Aarti and Aaron, on 19 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 10 Aug 2018

We truly had the best day getting married at Hilltop. Not only is it a beautiful place kept immaculately by Martin but Clare is the most organised, patient and helpful wedding planner! She was always on hand to answer our numerous questions, was most accommodating with our more unusual ideas and the whole day ran smoothly. They also very kindly sorted us out with a delicious cooked breakfast the morning after! We felt warmly welcomed at Hilltop where there is very much a family atmosphere. We felt very special and can't thank them enough for making everything so wonderful. Special thanks also goes to Iain for creating 2 most delicious menus for us inspired by our cultures; our Chinese and Indian families have very different tastes! He was really adventurous with our ideas and we had so many compliments on the food. So many of our guests have said it was the best wedding they have ever been to.

Amazing venue, fantastic team
Venue Service

By Emma and Ben, on 16 May 2018Date of Wedding - 05 May 2018

Hilltop as a venue is absolutely stunning. The grounds are beautiful and immaculately kept, the house is full of character and the marquee, light up bar and boogie room make for a fantastic evening. But as great as the venue is, it truly is the team behind it that made our day so amazing. Clare, Martin, Sam and the team are fantastic. Unlike other venues where things are more rigid, Clare was so excited for our plans, and was happy to make suggestions and work with the amazing Ian and team to create the most unbelievable food for us. From our initial enquiry to our delicious breakfast the morning after, our day was absolutely perfect, and everything we wished for.

Dear Emma, Ben and William, We truly had the most marvellous day. It was a huge pleasure to work with you to create such and original and perfect occasion which reflected your personalities so well! Thank you so much for your very kind review and for taking the trouble to write such lovely words which we really appreciate. Your day had such a happy and festive feel and was the rustic English garden wedding on a lovely May day which we planned through those dark Winter months together. Your family and guests were a pleasure to look after but there is no doubt that William stole the best behaved guest award! Thank you again for letting us be a part of your lives on such a special occasion and we do hope you will come and see us again. With love from us all, Clare.

A place where wonderful memories are made...
Venue Service

By Emma and Alex James, on 16 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 09 Dec 2017

Hilltop is a place where wonderful memories are made. Clare, Martin and their family truly look after you and personalise the day. It feels more like you are welcomed into their home than a business transaction. We rarely take the time to write reviews - as we all lead busy lives and I am not a fan of gushy reviews - but this one had to be done. Their attention to detail and warm approach has made planning a wedding easy for us - Clare is full of ideas to help you and Martin is on hand to make sure everything runs smoothly. Hilltop went the extra mile - responding promptly to our many questions, cutting holly for us as an extra table decoration, decorating the marquee for us exactly how we wanted it, making great recommendations, the food and wine was excellent, providing us with pics on a memory stick the morning after to keep us going before the professional photographer's pics arrive. Their son, Joe Gardner, was amazing to work with as our wedding photographer and made the extra effort to come and see us before the day to chat matters through. I cannot say anything more other than the venue is charming, the boogie room was a big hit with the guests, the people at Hilltop are lovely and the day was perfect. THANKS SO MUCH HILLTOP!! Alex James and I would certainly recommend you.

Clare Gardner., Director at Hilltop Country House responded to this review on 24/01/2018 14:32:17

I know I have already thanked you both in person already, but I just wanted to put on record that we are so appreciative of your splendid review and thank you so much for finding the time to post it when it is such a hectic time of year. It was lovely to see you both before Christmas and to share our memories of your wonderful day together. With much love, Clare x x

Relaxed, family run wedding venue.
Venue Service

By Gemma and Barry Jones, on 22 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Sep 2017

From viewing Hilltop for the first time to the wedding day itself, Clare, Martin and the team did their utmost to make us feel welcome and reassured that the day would be as perfect as possible. We really appreciated all Clare's responses to our many emailed questions and queries. Every time I emailed, Clare's response made me feel calm and relaxed about the whole day, which really is a weight off when you've got so much to plan. Martin and Clare welcome you into their home as an extension of their own family and you can really feel that when you are there. They are always on hand for questions and throughout the day without being too overbearing. We had so many comments from our guests about how great the venue was, from the gorgeous gardens and surrounding views to the food, marquee and boogie room. We had a fantastic day and so did our guests, in fact many of them have told us it was the best wedding they'd been too and that included their own!!

Hello dear Gemma and Barry, Thank you so much for taking the trouble to write such a wonderful review - it is so rewarding for Martin, the team and I to know you had the day you dreamed of! Funnily enough I was just looking at some photos of your wedding with Martin this morning and they brought back so many memories. Don't forget to come and see us for a first anniversary drink. We would love to see you as it is always sad to say good-bye. Thank you so much again for your kindness and your lovely review which we appreciate hugely. With lots of love from us all, Clare x x x x

Just perfect
Venue Service

By Andy and Fiona Latham, on 03 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 26 Aug 2017

From the moment we visited Hilltop we knew this was the wedding venue for us. Not only is it picture-perfect with its country house set in beautiful grounds and gardens surrounded by the gorgeous Cheshire countryside. The venue speaks for itself; it’s perfect, whether you want to have your wedding ceremony either inside the house or out on the patio… the choice is yours (or the weathers!). What made the venue even better are the staff. Clare is fantastic, extremely well organised and offers advice to you but only when you ask for it. Nothing is too much trouble for her, she never put any pressure on us and always insisted that it was ‘our day’ and she was willing to do whatever we wanted to make it special. All of the staff are superb but special thanks need to go to Charlotte and Ian who were also brilliant, making us both feel at ease from day one. Ian is the chef and all of our guests commented on how lovely the food was and the fact that everyone’s dishes were served hot. Our wedding day was just perfect and part of that was the Hilltop family who made us feel just that… family. We both want to say a huge thank you to everyone at Hilltop for helping to make our special day just that little bit more special. Lots of love, Andy and Fiona. x

Dear Andy and Fiona, Thank you so much for your wonderful review and it was so kind of your to give everyone such a special mention. We all had a whale of a time running your day and we are so thrilled that you had just the day you wanted. Now that you are part of the family I hope you will come and see us again soon! With love from us all, Clare.

Wonderful Management & Staff & Superb Location

By David Latham, on 09 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 26 Aug 2017

Dear Clare & Martin Just catching up and want to thank you both and all your staff for making our Son's wedding to Fiona such a wonderful, happy and memorable occasion. We really believe the atmosphere created and it is down to the people involved, the venue and the vast experience that you give to the occasion that made it so enjoyable and a day that we will all remember for the rest of our lives! From the initial meeting until the Wedding Day you have been exceptional in your advice and help and the warm family approach/manner made it much easier for Andrew & Fiona. Many thanks from both sets of parents and from the happy couple who are now enjoying their honeymoon in Italy. Our appreciation also to all your team who follow your brilliant example and make Hilltop House the most excellent venue anyone could wish to experience. Well done to you all Warmest Regards & thanks David & Cynthia Latham (on behalf of all who attended)

Clare Gardner., Owner. at Hilltop Country House responded to this review on 04/10/2017 13:11:43

Dear David and Cynthia, I am so sorry that my reply has taken so long, but heartfelt thanks for your kindness in writing such a super review. We do feel that creating a family atmosphere is so important and your wonderful family certainly reflected that belief. Thank you so much again and love to all the families. Clare x
