Venue Service

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.

Such a beautiful setting

My son and his wife Andy and Sarah were married here at Merrydale Manor on Saturday 5th August It was perfect in every way Such a beautiful setting, sheep grazing and lovely water features with the lake and fountain and gardens to die for. The staff are lovely, friendly and helpful The rooms are all stunning and were decorated with gorgeous flowers from Country flowers Barretts food is amazing and everyone was served so quickly so we were all eating at the same time which is not always the case at weddings. The band Under The Covers were incredible and we all had an amazing day The flowers wedding cakes and band were all sourced using recommendations and information from Merrydale Thanks so much to all of you for a fabulous day......I am still on cloud nine !

I would relive this day a million times over

We got married at Merrydale Manor on 2nd August and honestly had the best day ever!! We came across the venue after being recommended to visit by our photographer’s wife. As soon as I walked in the ceremony room I knew I wanted to get married there as it was like my Pinterest board!! From the start there was great communication from the staff. Shelley was great at answering all of my questions and giving any recommendations we needed. On the day we had Kirsty looking after us, she rang us the day before to check through things and calm our nerves. She was an absolute star on the day and we felt so lucky to have her work with us! She sorted absolutely everything so that we could enjoy the day without worrying. So many of our guests are even still commenting on what a lovely venue it was! We were lucky with the weather to be able to enjoy the grounds well into the evening, which was such a great extra that many other venues didn’t have. It was such a magical day with every detail of the venue styled and looked after to such a high standard. The breakfast the next day was a lovely way to say goodbye to our guests and we didn’t feel rushed out at all even though there was a wedding that day. I would relive this day a million times over! Thank you so much to all of the staff for making our day so memorable! X

We chose Merrydale and could not fault it. Micheal was amazing throughout and so are all the staff we worked with (mainly Shelley and Kirsty!). The venue was perfect. Our pictures are just simply amazing!! Thank you again to everyone at Merrydale for giving us the perfect day.

Our absolutely perfect wedding at Merrydale Manor
Venue Service

By Joanne & Stuart, on 07 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 26 May 2018

Just coming down from cloud 9 following our absolutely perfect wedding last weekend at Merrydale Manor. We first visited over a year ago when Merrydale was still under construction and fell in love with the venue, the garden, the setting and the team. We can’t thank everyone at Merrydale enough – Michael, Hattie, Ken, Shelley and Barrett’s catering for the most wonderful and memorable day!! The garden is so beautiful and we were lucky enough to spend most of the day in the sunshine with our family and friends. We have had such lovely comments about the whole day and I couldn’t recommend this special place highly enough. Photos to follow! Love from Jo and Stu xx

Venue Service

By Danielle & Pete, on 01 May 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Apr 2018

Thank you for everything you have done to help us prepare for our wedding on Saturday. We had the most amazing day and the venue was phenomenal! We were blown away with how the grounds and rooms were presented, as were our guests! We will miss coming along to open days and meetings now but the special memories will never leave us! A huge thank you to all of the team at Colshaw/Merrydale for everything! Best regards, Danielle & Pete

Our wedding was absolutely perfect
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Ainscough, on 29 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 30 Mar 2018

Our wedding was absolutely perfect, thanks to the amazing team. What completely sold the venue to us, was Michael and the rest of the Irlam family. Right from our first visit to Merrydale, the whole family worked so hard to give us the most perfect venue. Our day itself was what we can only describe as perfect, it was a dream come true. The ceremony room and Merrydale Suite looked like something out of a bridal magazine, guests are still commenting on how perfect the venue was! The food and drinks provided by Barrett’s was outstanding, and what really stood out was how smoothly everything ran. Michael and his team were present throughout the whole day and night, to ensure everything was perfect and we didn’t have anything to worry about. We were able to completely enjoy the day, knowing that the whole team had everything under control. The guests rooms were absolutely beautiful, immaculate and of the highest standard. Again, guests were blown away. We can’t thank Michael, Hattie and the rest of the team enough, for making our wedding day so special. I couldn’t imagine receiving such personable service and high standards, from any other venue. For any bride and groom who want luxury and a truly perfect wedding, I would highly recommend Merrydale manor! I’m already excited to find another occasion to celebrate at Merrydale! We cannot thank you enough. Mr and Mrs Ainscough x

Stunning Venue, Genuine People
Venue Service

By Lesley Brennan, on 05 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 30 Mar 2018

Michael, Hattie, Hayley and all the team at Merrydale you are the most genuine people who care about your guests immensely. From collecting some of our wedding guests from The Dog and taking them back after the evening of the wedding to even providing a shirt to one of our guests who had forgotten to pack his! Nothing was too much trouble and you were on hand constantly checking everything was ok. Your house is amazing and the venue is stunning.

Our guests fell in love with the venue
Venue Service

By Hannah Ramrachia, on 05 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Sep 2017

I can't put into words how amazing the team at Merrydale are! We got married here yesterday and I'm still on cloud 9!! Nothing was too much trouble, either in the run up to the wedding or on the day. Shelley the wedding coordinator has been so helpful and patient over the last 6 months - it's so useful to have someone who knows what they're doing to help you through the process. All of the staff genuinely care and want you to have the best possible day, you can tell they really love what they do. Our guests fell in love with the venue, the grounds are so pretty and the attention to detail in the interior is meticulous. Absolute 10/10 for everything at Merrydale! Thank you everyone so much xx

Stunning venue! Exceptionally helpful.
Venue Service

By Ananya McCarthy, on 05 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Sep 2017

What a stunning venue! Everyone was exceptionally helpful and friendly in the lead up to the wedding, and the day ran so smoothly! Dave and I were able to really relax and enjoy the day, while the team worked so hard and made it all seem effortless! Two weeks on and we are still getting lots of praise for the venue and staff from all our family and friends!! Special thanks to Shelley and Michael for making everything run so smoothly, and for all the 'small' things you did that made our day so perfect... even bringing the sunshine on a bank holiday weekend! I would do it all over again ... Dave thinks we should wait a while ??
