Simply the best, better than all the rest.

My wife and I got married here at the end of August, and it was honestly one of the best days we have ever had. James and Liv's attention to detail and their relaxed confident approach helped put us at ease. They are very flexible with ideas and love to try new ideas at the venue. We had archery and axe throwing which apparently was a first but went down an absolute treat with everyone. They helped coordinate everything on the day meaning we didn't have to worry about anything or lift a finger. The venue and accommodation is genuinely amazing and very well finished. Couldn't recommend this place enough! You helped make memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you Holesfoot!

Our dream wedding!!

Holesfoot is a hidden gem in the Eden Valley that gave us our dream Italian style wedding! Liv and James were the best venue suppliers we could have wished for, completely letting us put our own spin on our day which was so important to us. Their staff were also incredible and never left a flute empty which led to very happy guest!

One of the luxuries of Holesfoot is the ability for the wedding party to stay on site in the beautiful Holesfoot House so you can really drag out the wedding celebrations in style. The attention to detail in the house and barn is amazing and you can really see how much time and effort Liv and James have put in to create this beautiful venue.

We had our ceremony in the beautiful Italian gardens and it was a little slice of heaven. You have so many lovely options of where to get married around Holesfoot and Liv and James are completely committed to helping you create your dream wedding day. It’s perfect for fun loving couples who want the romantic yet fun vibes to their day.
Words can’t describe how grateful we are to have found Holesfoot and we have memories to treasure for the rest of our lives. Thank you!

Beautiful Holes foot.

We had the most amazing wedding day and it is honestly down to the generosity of them both. We really felt like we could just be and do what we wanted and just enjoy absolutely everything holesfoot had to offer without a worry. We had the most amazing wedding day and it is honestly down to the generosity of them both. We really felt like we could just be and do what we wanted and just enjoy absolutely everything holesfoot had to offer without a worry. We got married in the beautiful long room and the detail in that room is second to none. the colour of the walls and the beautiful wooden beams make the room so special and it feels very church like also, which we loved. Our ceremony was followed by drinks and dancing in the barn gardens with canapes and a live singer. We followed this through to the wedding breakfast in the barn followed by our evening reception. We spent the rest of the weekend at holesfoot which was so much fun. We had a big family BBQ the next day on the BBQ lawn, played croquet, relaxed in the sunshine and played on the rope swing many more times. We had so much fun and it was so lovely to spend that time with friends and family. We couldn't recommend doing that more, it really felt that we added that extra special something to our wedding and it kept the excitement going as we really didn't want to go home. The details are just stunning, and we loved that we felt a million miles from home and we loved how private it was too. We will never forget what James and liv did for us and our families. We had such a wonderful time and will cherish it for years to come.
