The perfect venue for a perfect day!

We got married in March 2024, and I honestly cannot recommend Hawkwell House enough.
We felt in very safe hands with Anna and Malcolm, they settled every worry, nerve and query. They were very accommodating and helpful, and I can honestly say the day went seamlessly. (Thanking Anna and Malcolm for that! Both were superstars and will forever sing their praises)
A massive hit with the guests was the food! I’ve been told by multiple guests it was the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding. Amazing choice of 3 options for starters, mains and puddings and fresh pizzas in the evening! (The fantastic chefs even cooked these in the pizza ovens outside in front of our guests!)
Our main selling point of this venue is you have your own area, including bar and outside space! Plus the stunning surroundings.
It was the best day, even better than we could have ever imagined. Highly recommend!
