Everyone from Merrydale was excellent
Venue Service

By Mrs Furber, on 13 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 28 Jun 2019

Merrydale, quite simply, is the birthplace of wedding dreams and fairytales. Throughout our daughter’s wedding planning journey, we were shown nothing but warmth, friendliness and hospitality - from our initial ‘show round’ (still a building site) through to us stacking up our cars with wedding remnants and happy memories following the most perfect and magical day. Everyone from Merrydale was excellent but I have to say extra special thanks to Kirsty who was just amazing. She perceived everything, from discreet tissues, to zip mending, to sorting out the boys (well done on that!) and that’s only the stuff I know about.....she really touched our hearts. You are very special Kirsty and we won’t ever forget your kindness and your compassion. Merrydale will forever be locked in the hearts of this family as the most special and precious place. It’s not just about the fabric of a building, though that is truly spectacular, it’s the love, warmth and joyfulness you breathe into it and Merrydale - you smashed it.

Everything was perfect
Venue Service

By Ashley & Craig Smith, on 19 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 09 Jun 2019

We got married on Sunday 9th June at Merrydale Manor. Everything was perfect and all the guests commented on how amazing the venue is. The staff who helped organise everything were unbelievable and helped put us at ease so we could enjoy our day. Michael, Hattie and Kirsty all went the extra mile to organise and arrange every detail to be perfect. On the day Kirsty and Toast Master Ken were amazing and helped keep everything on track. Once we looked around Merrydale we knew it was where we wanted to get married, it blew all other venues out the water and it definitely delivered on the day!

My daughter got married to her partner at this venue Merrydale Manor. This review is too easy to compose. It’s absolutely 5 star excellence. The ambience, location and the rooms cannot be faulted in anyway at all. The attention to detail throughout the whole day wowed all our guests. The staff were truly amazing, courteous and so professional throughout the day Feed back from family and friends was outstanding. Well done to all the staff at Merrydale and a big thank you from Father and Mother of the bride. Thank you so much all of you Sean and Dai XX

Merrydale is truly the venue of dreams
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Leather, on 13 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 26 Apr 2019

We want to echo all the previous excellent reviews. Merrydale is truly the venue of dreams. Thank you to Micheal who initially showed us round prior to the venue opening. The minute we drove down the drive and saw the stunning landscapes we knew it was a truly special venue. We got married back exactly 2 months ago in April and it truly was magical from start to finish. We were lucky enough to spend the evening before at Merrydale. We had a lovely meal at the dog - all transport was provided and the lovely Margaret brought us to and from the venue. It allowed us all to relax and not worry about driving. Steve was also very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. Waking up in the beautiful bridal suite on the morning made the morning feel so relaxing. The make up room was a great facility and it was lovely for the bridal party to get their hair and make up done there. Margaret and the team were there in the morning to look after us again being so attentive to our every need. A huge thank you to Hattie & Kirsty for making the day feel super organised and for answering all our queries leading up to our special day. A special mention to Ken our Toast Master, he tended to our every need and made us smile all day. He truly made our day. Our guests complimented how amazing the service was, how beautiful the venue was and how professional the staff were. The food was truly gorgeous - from the canapés to our wedding breakfast. A big thank you to Barrett’s and their staff - no glass was left empty! Attention to detail was second to none.

I genuinely could not recommend Merrydale any more
Venue Service

By Hannah & Stephen Dean, on 13 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 06 Apr 2019

We've just had our video back from our wedding on 6th April and relived what was just a perfect day over and over again. I genuinely could not recommend Merrydale any more to anyone who is getting married, everything is simply amazing. The venue is just stunning and the staff are next level amazing! Every venue needs a Kirsty, she made everything run so so smoothly and nothing was too much trouble. The attention to detail was incredible and every member of staff went above and beyond any of our expectations. Our toastmaster Steven was brilliant, so funny and engaging and again helped the day to run smoothly. I don't think you'll find a better venue than Merrydale - I only wish we could do it all again! Thank you so much to all of the team for making it the best day of our lives - Hannah & Stephen Dean

We had the best day of our lives

By Jordan & Rebecca, on 29 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Dec 2018

We would 100% recommend Merrydale Manor, we had the best day of our lives. All the staff are unbelievably helpful and we couldn’t have done it without them. Thank you so much from Jordan & Rebecca

Couldn't ask for more!
Venue Service

By EMMA, on 30 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Sep 2018

Merrydale Manor is the most INCREDIBLE wedding venue. The staff, service and facilities are all second to none, I am so glad we were lucky enough to have our big day there. Choosing your wedding venue is a big decision but you will honestly struggle to top Merrydale as a location. It is such a beautiful setting and from your engagement to your "I do's" they just manage everything so professionally, and most importantly they deliver an amazing day! Nothing is too much trouble and if you decide to stay in the manor house or courtyard rooms you are in for a real treat, they are beautiful!

We have just had the most perfect wedding day
Venue Service

By Hannah Crabtree, on 29 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 07 Sep 2018

We have just had the most perfect wedding day I could have wished for at Merrydale Manor. From the first time I saw the venue to the moment I left as newly-wed, you have been amazing. Michael and Hattie made us feel so comfortable whenever we visited and the team that worked with us throughout the day made everything so special. Thank you to all the staff and special thanks to Kirsty who worked tirelessly to make everything perfect so we didn’t have to; to Ken who was an absolute pleasure to be around and who made everything run like clockwork; and to Rosie who made sure our plates were pristine and our glasses were never empty. xx

What a fantastic wedding venue
Venue Service

By Elizabeth Greenwood, on 29 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Sep 2018

What a fantastic wedding venue. My daughter got married on Saturday, the staff are absolutely amazing from booking the wedding 18 months ago to the big day you were there to help everyone that came. Our guests said it was the best wedding they had been to. Massive thank you x

By Francesca & Anthony Crolla, on 29 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 18 Aug 2018

Where do I start… I remember the 1st time going to visit Merrydale before it was complete, and I still fell in love with it straight away. From the big entrance gates, the perfectly surrounding grounds, to making your way up to the house, everything was immaculate and we knew there & then that's where we wanted to get married. Not only is Micheal Irlam one of the nicest men you will ever meet, Right from the start he made sure nothing was too much of an ask. He made sure all of our family/friends felt welcome on any visit to Merrydale and catered for any of their needs. He was present all throughout our day and made sure it ran smoothly, you could tell every wedding is as important to them as a family. Shelley Jones who is part of the events team Played a big part in the planning to our day, she took the stress right out of it and made it an enjoyable time for us. On the day Shelley & Ken (toastmaster) went above & beyond to make sure we needed for nothing, everything was perfect & stress-free from start to finish and even stayed with us until the end. On our actual wedding day, we can only describe it as breathtaking. The flowers & decor throughout the whole venue from red floral blew us away, the food everyone received from Barretts caterers had nothing but amazing comments, the drinks put on were all the best selections and our entertainment by six15 was second to none. All the hard work everyone had put into making our day as special as it was we could never repay them. This is why it is the no1 wedding venue when you have a family & team like they do!

Truly stunning and faultless
Venue Service

By Sophie & Matt Lamb, on 29 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 17 Aug 2018

Wow! I’m not even quite sure where to start! From the second we arrived on Thursday 16th August, ready for our wedding on Friday the staff could not have done anything more for us to make our stay the best. Waking up there on my wedding morning overlooking the lake with the sun rising was just a dream come true. Our day was so special and more than we ever dreamed of and the majority of this really is down to the venue and staff- they make everybody feel at home and are super efficient in everything! I realised the tractor was still on the field by the lake on the morning of my wedding however once acknowledged this was moved in seconds. Nothing is ever too much for these guys. We had guests staying at the dog and they were transported to and from the dog by staff to Merrydale- in fact Steve even did 2 trips on the evening which was just no problem to him at all as all they want to do is please. The number of compliments we had on our venue and everything about the day has been fantastic. In fact overwhelming! Our wedding day was spectacular and memories were made that will live with me forever. Micheal,Suzanne, Hattie, Kirsty, Ken and Steve you made our day the best it possibly could have been and I will be forever grateful of that. Truly Stunning and 100% faultless! Thank you so so much! Sophie and Matt Lamb 17/08/18

By AnneMarie Kafka, on 13 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 12 Aug 2018

I guess all was going well until a candle set light to a flower arrangement and set the alarms off. Now you would think the staff would act calmly, follow policy, have one do the evacuation whilst the other tackled the fire right? Nope, every stayed seated to watch 2 members of staff in a blind panic. The makes good blowing and flapping his arms, which, as most of us know, is completely the wrong thing to do. A guest suggested starving the fire of oxygen, he refused, saying it would ruin the tablecloth. Really? Another guest yelled for water, as the flames were close to the curtains. The female member of staff ran for water. Another quick thinking guest ran for a fire extinguisher. The male member of staff clearly recognised how much he looked like Basil Fawlty and disappeared for the rest of the day. Please give these people some basic training if they are to allow naked flames next to silk flowers that are not fire resistant? Opening doors after the event to let the smoke out might be a good idea too.
