Craxton Wood Hotel a special place, complemented by the weather felt like a Royal Garden Party.
All our needs were catered for and the feedback we have had is nothing but praise about what a lovely place, the food was fabulous.
THANK YOU ALL does not express sufficiently how happy, pleased. overjoyed, delighted we are with all you did for us. We know a wedding is an expensive occasion and that is what you are in business for. Nonetheless I can only say you offer and deliver value for money.

Still Perfect!

Just wanted to add an update. We went back for our first anniversary, to spend the night. When they found out it was our anniversary, and we had had our receptions there, they upgraded us for free into the bridal suite, and put a bottle of bubbly on ice in the room for us, also free of charge. Later in the evening, after dinner, even though the patio area was closed, they let us take our wine out there, and brought us a cheeseboard and even some candles to light up our table. Considering we werent spending thousands with them on this occasion, they still took really good care of us, made our anniversary perfect!!

Absolutely Perfect!!!!!

We had our afternoon and evening receptions here on 6th Sept 03, and we cant praise it highly enough! The accomodation is fantastic and the gardens are lovely. The food was gorgeous and the staff couldnt have done more to make our day perfect, from the first time we visited, to the day after the wedding, they were helpful, polite and best of all, very organised, which is reassuring!!!

Outstanding Venue, gets a 10/10 from us!!
