Perfect wedding venue!
Venue Service

By Hannah & Martin, on 02 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Jul 2019

What an excellent wedding venue! We couldn't recommend it highly enough. They were so helpful with everything from planning to making sure everything ran perfectly on the day. Pynes house provided a wedding coordinator who was fantastic! You could tell she knew exactly what she was doing and everything was managed perfectly. Even down to having our little dog run down the aisle before the bride arrived! Many of the guests commented on how spectacular the venue is, and we couldn't agree more. It was like a fairy tale to be able to stay and get married in such a magnificent place, and to have all of our friends and family around us too. The accomodation is beautiful, from the bedrooms to the guest kitchen, Pynes felt like it was ours for the weekend and it was wonderful to have so many of the wedding party staying in the same place as us for the weekend of the wedding. Fantastic wedding venue, we couldn't have been happier.

The most magical wedding venue!

We got married in June this year and it was the most magical day, from the first visit to Pynes House and going up that driveway I just knew that was going to be our venue. The guest rooms are spectacular and each of our guests were in love with them. Kate and the team were incredible from the first visit to waving us goodbye as mr and mrs I could not recommend this venue more

Thank you, Josh and Jodie, it really was a magical day!

Dream Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By Ashley Rowat, on 23 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 13 Apr 2019

I was so nervous prior to my first visit to Pynes House; we had read so many fabulous reviews about this impressive venue, most of which detail love at first sight and I am so pleased to say, Pynes House did not disappoint. After so many unsuccessful venue searches and visits, from the minute car started to roll down the long and inviting driveway, we were in awe. The house is set within the most beautiful surroundings and is visually breathtaking. Each luxurious room is decorated to perfection and what every bride dreams of for their wedding night. Although Jon and I knew we wanted to marry outside, there was much less stress leading up to the day, as we knew the inside of the house was as beautiful as the outside. However, we were lucky enough to have the wedding we had always hoped for and it couldn't have been more perfect. Heather and Kate are so lovely and such a pleasure to work with. From the moment we first spoke, they were helpful, friendly and supportive and we couldn't have asked for more. Pynes House is the most gorgeous home, from home and provided the most phenomenal setting for our dream wedding.

Thank you Ashley and Jon - it was a huge privilege to host your wedding :)

Beautiful venue, but be careful of the added extra

Beautiful venue, but be careful of the added extras! We got married on the 30th June 2018 and had the most wonderful time, however we found that you do need to budget quite a lot more than the initial price quoted as the venue do charge extra for quite a few things, I.e. music being on until 12pm, beds being made, bottle collection, £600 for an extra 3 hours on the Sunday etc. Just read the T&Cs carefully as we were caught out a week before the wedding being told we would be charged £500 extra for the music to be on until 12pm. They reduced it to £250 eventually but it left a sour taste in the mouth 7 days before the wedding. Overall, it was a beautiful venue and very well appointed both inside and out.

Dear Gabby and Andy, thank you for your review, we are glad that you had a wonderful time at your wedding and enjoyed the venue and it was a pleasure to host you here. We are sorry that you felt that any optional extras were not clear. We do encourage all couples to read our terms and conditions carefully before they book, which clearly set out our standard timings for check-in/check-out and finish times on the wedding night. Our standard charges do include everything that the majority of couples want. However, we recognise that one size doesn’t fit all and that, for example, a few couples wish to extend their celebrations. We are happy to offer that flexibility, but make an extra charge for this as it impacts on our staffing and the availability of the house for other purposes. As we don’t charge corkage, couples are responsible for taking away their bottles; however, we recognise that not everybody wishes to do this so have recently arranged the option for someone to do this for you, if you would prefer. In order to keep our standard charges down, we prefer to give couples the flexibility to take those extra options up or not as they prefer. We hope that this did not detract unduly from your happy memories of your wedding and wish you all the best for the future.

Venue Service

My husband and I were married at Pynes House in August of 2013 and we cannot say enough about how incredibly happy we are with our experience there. Everything about the venue exceeded our expectations. Pynes House is like stepping back in time into a Jane Austen novel with all the amenities of a modern five star resort. We were able to choose our own caterer, florist, band and marquee hire in order to customize our wedding day and make it the day of our dreams. As soon as you step onto the property, you feel as if you have stepped into a fairytale. The staff is incredibly helpful and caters to all your needs while the accommodations are that of a five star resort. Our closest guests were able to stay on the property with us and the rest were shuttled from hotels in the city for the wedding day all with great help from the staff. The entire day went so smoothly and we are still told by guests that it was the most wonderful wedding they had ever experienced. If you want your wedding day to be a real life fairy tale, choose Pynes House! We couldn't be happier
