Perfection at its most perfect.

We cannot thank Holmewood Hall enough for their hospitality to achieve our dream wedding.

It was the first venue we planned to visit following our engagement and knew we didn’t need to look any further.
The architecture of the house, the original decor and the decorative touches are outstanding.
The grounds are well kept and freshly prepared daily to ensure they are always on top form. However, it really was the attention to detail and incredible quality of the staff which really made the difference!

Every time we visited the venue for another visit, checking on final details or attending one of their wonderful dinner dates, the staff were fantastic. We have not experienced such consistently high level of professionalism, but always with that little bit of personality from each and every member of staff we saw. This make it particularity lovely to see those familiar faces we had gotten to know, on our actual wedding day. We can’t forget to thank the staff who worked hard behind the scenes to produce impeccable food and the wait staff who kept everybody’s glasses wet.

Lee, our personal wedding manager; we just can’t stop singing his praises! Any issues at any time, he was there. He was happy to offer reassurance when things weren’t going quite to plan. On the wedding day itself, he kept everything under control, running smoothly and done it with grace and ease. He made us feel heard, prioritised and ensured our wedding was unique to us, truly representing who we are as a couple. He worked efficiently with our suppliers, made them all feel welcomed and at home. Several of our suppliers actually commented saying that it was the nicest venue they’ve worked with as a result.

Holmewood Hall were great in accommodating our social content creator, Amyleigh socials to do her work. She perfectly captured the pure happiness, love and joy from the day. From the preparation, our first reactions, our ceremony and all the way until until our party; Amy really has created a lifetime of memories from this most beautiful venue and our perfect day. Holmewood Hall encouraged Amy and Steve (our photographer), to move around the venue as they needed to really show off their skill set.

We sincerely cannot thank Amy, Steve, Lee and all the staff at Holmewood enough! We cannot wait to visit for a dinner date soon, as a married couple!

Absolutely Outstanding!

We had our wedding at Holmewood Hall on Saturday and it was the most perfect weekend!
The Bridal party stayed in the Cottage the night before and had an incredible evening, making the most of the local pizzaria (Sub Xpress Pizza) and hot tub.
On the wedding day itself Lee, our Wedding Planning Manager, could not have done enough for us, everything was as we had planned and everything was spot on.
The food was incredible, as were the drinks. Lee made sure we were able to have a completely gluten free wedding, and I must say it surpassed all expectations. Myself and my gluten free guests got to eat food we haven't been able to for years!
We also stayed for the breakfast the next morning, which was also fantastic.
On the leadup to the wedding Lee did everything he could to answer all my questions and gathered all the required information for the running of the day.
All in all, it could not have asked for a better venue, we had outstanding customer service and exceptional planning.

The most perfect day!

Holmewood hall was amazing from start to finish. All the staff were so attentive, organised and efficient leading up to and on the day. Giulia was always on hand to answer any questions and honestly made the day go flawlessly. We brought lots of our own decor to use and the team set everything up and packed away so carefully and it looking stunning.
All guests with dietary requirements were catered for perfectly and most of them commented on how must of a positive experience the food was.
The wedding breakfast was served and everyone said the portion sizes were very filling, there was evening food left over (unheard of).

The DJ set up the perfect playlist based on our likes dislikes and requests. The first dances were organised and worked perfectly. I would recommend getting as much confetti as possible for the indoor dance shot, as it came out stunning.

The catering team and cleaning team turned everything around so quickly it was like there was never any mess.

As a bride you might be anxious about not moving into the bridal suite until 11, but this honestly gave plenty of time to move everything over, finish getting ready and getting dressed perfectly for the ceremony. Guests commented on how clearly you could hear with the acoustics of the gold room for the ceremony, I would recommend the inside ceremony, for the use of the stunning mirror and for your guests to be able to hear you!

Holmewood also purchased mini golf which we added on last minute, this stays out all evening and some of our guests even got another round in the next morning before breakfast.

We would recommend Holmewood to anyone who asked, worth every penny! Giulia, Kala and team were perfect. Thanks again.

Perfect from start to finish

Words cannot say how pleased we were with every aspect of the wedding. Coming from a service industry background our expectations of customer service is extremely high. Holmewood Hall did not disappoint From the very minute my daughter arrived the evening before the wedding, to the minute we left the following morning, everything was absolutely spot on. Nothing was too much trouble Every single member of staff desperately wants the day to be perfect and go out of their way to ensure that this happens. As a parent you know you’ve nailed it when your daughter keeps telling you that they’ve had the best day of their life and want to do it all again. If I had one complain it would be that it was over way to fast !!!! Well done Holmewood Hall you surpassed all our wildest dreams

Our experience at just early stages. Wow!!

Friendly, welcoming, professional, clean, and just all round so excited to have our wedding at this dream place, they are fast responding and so happy to help with literally everything no matter how big or small Katie and Lee are just so amazing I couldn't have asked for a better team to help plan our wedding and help us. We are only in the early stages but if I'm this impressed, I so can not wait for the big day. I'm sure they smash it.

Seemless Wedding

The team at Holmewood have been absolutely amazing. We the current covid climate, our guest list, seating plan, and catering requirements were changing right up to the morning of the wedding, and Holmewood just took it in their stride. They enabled us to also have a live stream of our wedding for those who couldn't attend.
The food was brilliant with different variations for vegan and vegetarians, gluten-free and dairy-free. Their service at the breakfast was seamless and they just kept checking in with us to make sure everything was going well. I could not have asked for a better 24 hours.

The most magical, memorable day of our lives!

We got married in August 2023 and we cannot recommend Holmewood Hall enough. From the moment we booked our wedding, to the day itself, it was an amazing, personal experience. We were assigned a Personal Wedding Manager Lee and he was exceptional. Lee answered all the questions we had and nothing was too much. Lee is experienced, knowledgable, professional and well organised and really ensured everything was stress free. We were extremely lucky to have him and cannot thank him enough. All the staff at Holmewood Hall were amazing and it does run like a well oiled machine. Another thankyou to Michaela, who ensured our wedding breakfast ran to time and we were happy with how things were going. You can really tell she takes real pride in her job and many guests mentioned this to us. All our guests also commented on how incredible Holmewood Hall is as a wedding venue. We really do feel it has the ‘wow’ factor and loved how many different rooms there are there e.g. ceremony room, dining room, library, study, the vault, the grounds etc. It is very different to other wedding venues we were originally looking at, at Holmewood Hall the possibilities are endless and gave all new experiences to our guests, plus it’s an exclusive venue which is a real bonus. The accommodation on site is amazing and breakfast the next day still had the same high standards of that on our wedding day. I would also recommend booking the Cottage to any bride, this made the night before our wedding an enjoyable, relaxed experience. We would recommend Holmewood Hall to any couple, my husband and I had the most magical, memorable wedding day. You will be in safe hands at Holmewood Hall, they literally made our wedding! 🤍

Without a doubt the best day of our lives

Lee and the holmewood hall staff helped bring together our dream wedding from start to finish. The food, grounds and friendliness of staff to our guests was amazing and we couldn't have asked for a better service. Nothing was too much to ask for and they catered for the additional needs of some guests without hesitation. The wedding experience from start to finish was without stress and the the day flowed from morning to night with no hick ups. We truly had the most amazing day and are still smiling from ear to ear. We want to thank Lee in particular and the rest of the staff working on our day and would highly recommend the venue. We look forward to going back for a dinner date evening

Perfect wedding 💕

We had a fabulous wedding at Holmewood, stress free, venue set up just as we wanted it, Polly our wedding planner was lovely & made sure we had everything sorted pre the day! Food was delicious and plenty of it. We loved the individual rooms and optional bars for the older family members to chatter without shouting over music and those who wanted to dance could, food could be enjoyed away from the music but the party didn’t have to stop for people to eat! Beautiful grounds for people to enjoy and for photos!

Our winter wedding

In November 2022 we decided to take a late availability package at Holmewood Hall in January 2023. We fell in love with the beautiful wedding venue as soon as we visited it.

The package included the food, cake stand, a certain amount of drinks and the DJ.

I have to say that the service was excellent, particularly on the wedding day. Lee our wedding manager had everything running as it should and organised everyone. The catering staff were also excellent and the food was delicious.
Everyone enjoyed the disco.

The best thing for me was that the Hall was exclusive to us which meant we didn't have to worry about the children's safety and we were able to get married at the venue and then have quite a lot of the guests stay and have breakfast with us the next day. Breakfast was good, like a hot and cold buffet.

The only negative things I would say are:

1. That you can only choose to have 2 mains and 2 starters. As one of these has to be vegetarian it restricts peoples' choices a bit. I asked if there could be a choice of two meat dishes so that we could have beef and chicken and then the vegetarian option but this wasn't allowed. I found it strange as you have to get peoples' orders in advance. However, the food itself was delicious.

2. The dance floor room was very, very cold in January. A number of our guests went and sat in a different room / bar as they were too cold. Eventually I asked for some portable heaters to be brought in.

3. The bedrooms are quite expensive and don't have much in the way of facilities as it is NOT a hotel. There are no TVs or tea and coffee facilities. Not really an issue for us as we were enjoying the wedding but I think some of the guests might have liked to be able to make a cup of tea for instance. Also, you have to 'bulk buy' the rooms though in the end we actually filled them all as we subsidised the cost of the rooms to our guests.

Overall though I would recommend Holmewood Hall as a wedding venue.

Awful from start to finish

I forwarded the following complaint to Holmewood Hall following a stay there for my cousins wedding. Having spoken to other people staying there, it became apparent that we were far from the only people with these views. Having just received a response from them, they had little to no interest in anything I'd said. I was basically told that a lot of what i said was incorrect. For the cost of the room I expected way better than what we received, including the service. Having now read a lot of the reviews from past guests, it is clear that they are not a venue to be contemplated using for your perfect day. I would not recommend them whatsoever.
See points below.

. No tea or coffee making facilities.

• No TV.

• No Wardrobe.

• No phone to contact reception or anyone.

• Terrible wifi.

• Bath towel was barely bigger than a hand towel.

• Cold room (not once the whole time did the room get warm despite radiators being on as high as we could get them).

• Despite arriving early (after a 4hr drive) we had to wait around to check in, then everyone had to be checked in at the same time with only 1.5 hours to get ready for the wedding.

• Noticeably everyone was then showering at the same time as water temperature constantly fluctuating up and down.

• Only the very bottom of the towel rail was warm meaning our towels didn't dry, so the following morning we had to use wet towels.

• Bathroom tap leaked.

• The door didn't lock sufficiently meaning you could just push the door open from outside when in the locked position.

• No room within the venue felt a comfortable temperature, the actual wedding room was too hot, all other rooms never felt upto a decent temperature.

• Came down for breakfast at 09:05 and cereals hadnt been replenished and cooked food looked and tasted dried out.

• My partner was just invited to the evening event and not the wedding. Needless to say with no tv, no tea or coffee and pointless wifi she ended up having to leave the venue through sheer boredom.

• Couldn't relax once as we constantly felt rushed for time.

We didn't complain about any of the issues at the time as we were so rushed for time from start to finish and staying for less than 24hrs we didnt want the hassle of being moved or having to deal with sorting them out.

All in all, we were shocked by how bad the whole experience was and it certainly wasn't just ourselves that felt like this having spoken to other guests at the wedding.

If it's in your budget, go for it!

I don't think we could have picked a more perfect venue than Holmewood Hall for a Summer wedding. Not only was the venue itself utterly gorgeous, its staff were fantastic, professional, and understanding, adapting to last-minute hiccups with the guest list without any issue. They made the wedding go absolutely smoothly in 35 C full sun, and that was not a small feat. Dealing with the venue in the run-up to the event was very easy and open and communication was regular - at no point were we left in the dark about anything. The venue was very good at accommodating our guests with special needs, from dietary requirements to mobility. All was taken into account to the best of their abilities.

This is not a cheap venue, however considering it comes with full catering, a DJ, and the ability to have your entire wedding and reception in one place, it was absolutely worth it. The catering was very tasty, no corners cut at all. They also provide you with a wedding manager, who guides you through the whole process and is able to make things work incredibly well since they know and work with the staff directly. I would also highly recommend the bedroom package, as it means guests coming from afar have an easy place to crash. We had an international wedding and this was invaluable. Plus it includes breakfast the next morning.

Overall, a rock-solid choice, which we highly recommend if it's in your budget.
