    We would like to say a huge thank you to the whole

    We would like to say a huge thank you to the whole team at Old Down for making our wedding weekend in August absolutely perfect. Throughout the whole year of planning, Joey has been absolutely fantastic, with no amount of questions or visits being too much for her, not to mention her help in coordinating things on the day. Joey was generally quick to respond, attentive and prepared us well for the running of the day, as well as coordinating logistics with our suppliers which meant that we did not need to worry about that. Her attention to our requirements for our wedding breakfast and pre-wedding dinner on the Friday night was exceptional and many of our guests commented on how great the food was, with the chefs going off menu to meet our wishes. Over the weekend itself, Warren and his team made sure everything went smoothly and exactly as planned. We felt super comfortable to simply enjoy the day, knowing that Warren had everything under control. The venue was beautiful and there was plenty of space for our 170 guests despite the weather not really allowing for much outdoor time. We wish we could do it all over again!

    It was absolutely perfect!

    Cannot thank Joey and the team at Old Down enough for their work towards and on our wedding day! It was absolutely perfect! The whole day ran seamlessly (we got married at 3pm) with no gaps but also no rush! The added touch of staying in the Foxholes Barn the night before made the whole experience even more special and the breakfast the day after the wedding was lush!! Massively recommend this place to anyone looking for a wedding venue

    Thank you so much Old Down

    What an incredible venue. We are so pleased we hosted our wedding reception at the Manor House.
    The views are amazing, the day ran like clockwork (special thanks to Joey and Warren) and we captured some fantastic shots by the lake.
    All our wedding guests commented on how lovely the venue is.
    Thank you so much Old Down.
