We just wanted to say thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding day amazing! We literally had the best day of our lives and that was made by all the brilliant staff at Powder mills! Everyone was so pleased with the hotel and commented on how helpful and lovely all of the staff were on the day. The hotel is so beautiful and even the unfortunate weather did not dampen our day.

Thanks once again, we both look forward to returning for a stay soon!

Fantastic up-market country hotel venue

Attended one wedding there mid-2001 and couldn't fault it. Impeccable service and wonderful food.

Am due back there for a mid-November wedding so will report back with an up-date.

They know how to make your day unforgettable

I had my wedding there in '97, this place meant a lot to us anyway but it was an excellent day and because the hotel itself is not too big, the staff remembers you !
