a private, romantic, beautiful and friendly setting for our fairytail dream wedding.
We spent a long time searching for our ideal wedding venue but as soon as we viewed Offely Place, we knew it was the place for us.Sent on 23/02/2005
Our ceremony was held outside in the pretty gazebo with our family and friends gathered around in the beautiful rose garden.
After our ceremony we had our photos in the stunning grounds of the house and our wedding breakfast in the marquee suite with open doors looking out over the grounds.
Our evening reception was also held at Offely with a live band in the Dining Room and a delicious buffet in the Oriental Room.
Our guests could enjoy using all downstairs rooms, including outside and the bar area.
We spent our wedding night in one of offleys huge rooms, which was brimming with character and very comfortable. Our guests were also offered the chance to stay and experience the grandure of the rooms.
we could not of asked for a better experience to celebrate our magical day. The place was perfect, the staff were great and the weather was fine, what else could we ask for!
Would highly recommend to anyone who wants a perfect day!

Wedding of my dreams
We decided to go ahead with our wedding despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and I am so glad we did! The Offley team helped us every step of the way and really made sure we felt reassured about the situation. We certainly made the best of a bad situation and an incredibly memorable day came out of it. Thank you so much Offley place for all your hard work.Sent on 13/01/2021

Small Claims Court Against Offley Place
Booking 6 months in advance and paying 100% of the money turned to disaster. ______________ cancelled 9.50pm the night before 21st March ‘20, even though the government only banned weddings (due to COVID) on 23rd and closed hotels on 25th.Sent on 24/11/2020
You might see lots of messages of sympathy on Offley website. Don’t be fooled. We were met with a brick wall response, as have others. The hotel were taken to small claims court and we won.
A directorship and staff with fake pretences.
All so be aware that you cannot have a make-up room for the bride if you want an early wedding.
The hotel agreed to 12.30am for the ceremony and then returned remarks that they do not offer early weddings - even though it was on our contract.
