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

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.

We just wanted to send you a quick message to say the biggest of thank yous for all of your hard work not only on our wedding day on Sunday, but throughout the whole of the planning process. You have been an absolute superstar! You have made everything so easy for us. We haven't been stressed at all, even on the day, and that's all down to your reassurance and professionalism. We had the most wonderful day, where we were able to totally relax and enjoy the magical moments. Warren and the whole front of house staff were absolutely amazing, please pass on our sincere thanks. We had a lot of comments from people about how smoothly everything ran - you were one step ahead of us all day, keeping us on track and keeping our guests happy. Amazing!

I just want to say a giant thank you for Saturday. The team were absolutely exceptional and we genuinely had the best day of our lives. We are both sticklers for organisation and I thought there was no way I'd be able to spend the day not worrying about what was happening or feeling like I had to organise things myself - particularly when so much of my job involves this. But I was able to completely switch off and at no point did I feel I couldn't totally relax and feel like I was in the very safest of hands. The guests said it was the best wedding they've ever been to, and you and your team have so much responsibility for that incredible compliment. The smooth running, organisation, placement of decorations, co-ordination, attentiveness of staff and fantastic upkeep of the beautiful venue were second to none. I feel so incredibly lucky that we were able to marry at the Old Down in the capable hands of you and your colleagues.

We have just attended the Paul and Susie wedding and I felt compelled to contact you and say what an amazing venue you have and how completely fantastic everything you did was. The attention to detail and the customer service was exemplary. Every need was catered for and nothing was too much trouble. In particular when my son was unfortunately ill within an hour of the bride arriving …nothing was an issue and I wasn’t made to feel awkward at all. I sincerely apologise for your housekeeping having to clean up after him. The manor is out of this world location and view wise and your staff were amazing. I can’t complement you all enough.

Now I am back from holiday I just wanted to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for everything you and your team did to make their wedding day so perfect. One thing that I would particularly like to call out is how wonderful you and your team were - especially would like to thank Jason and all of the waiting team and the barmen. They were all amazing, nothing was too much trouble, never have we experienced such wonderful, professional, friendly service like this at a function. YOU ALL MAKE SUCH AN AMAZING TEAM together. - it was a wonderful, wonderful couple of days - and worth every single penny ! THANK YOU SO MUCH
