    Outstanding!

    The entire team at Quantock Lakes we’re absolutely incredible!!

    We had to postpone our big day 3 times (thanks covid!) and every time they were so amazing at accommodating us and adapting to the changes, we knew that on the day they would be incredible… but they still exceeded all our expectations!!

    Going above and beyond throughout our weekend there, Naomi, Sarah, Laura, Lucy, Rosy and all of their teams could not have made it any better.

    If you are thinking about booking this venue, all we can say is DO IT NOW, you’ll have no regrets!!

    Thank you so much everyone at Quantocks for making our wedding so magical!! 🥰

    Just amazing!!

    Everything from the moment we arrived the day before the wedding up to the minute we left the day after was absolutely perfect!! The girls at Quantock Lakes are just amazing! Nothing was too much trouble for them, they responded quickly to any queries we sent by email, they guided us through everything and were there for us throughout. They helped us set up the venue on the friday and assisted the florist on the morning of the wedding. They kept checking in on us while we were getting ready and guided us through the day so we had nothing to worry about. Everything ran smoothly. The canapes and sit down meal were so delicious! Our guests all enjoyed the food including the evening buffet.
    The accomodation at the venue is out of this world and was just perfect! The attention to detail throughout the whole venue is outstanding. I cannot recommend Quantock Lakes enough, we had the most amazingly perfect day and wish we could relive it xx

    Quantock Lakes's reply:

    Dear Gemma, thank you so much for your wonderful words - we all loved every moment, we really did. Thank you for being so wonderful to work with and we all wish you a wonderful marrriage. Warmest Regards, The Dream Team. x

    The perfect day

    My daughter and her husband had their wedding weekend at Quantock Lakes last weekend, with a welcome BBQ on the Friday evening and the main event on Saturday. I do not have first hand experience of the happy couple’s dealings with the venue prior to the actual weekend, although they both consistently made positive comments over the 18-month planning period and I was never party to any negative feedback. I did however have the fortune to visit the venue some months before the wedding, where Laura gave the parents a thorough tour.

    I write this review as a guest, albeit the Father of Bride. The accommodation and facilities surpassed what I had expected. Our wedding party was approximately 87 guests, 50 of which were staying at the venue, everyone I spoke to praised the facilities and remarked on the quality of the rooms and communal areas. Sarah ensured that those staying in the accommodation were welcomed and did not have any problems after their arrival on Friday afternoon.

    From the start of the ceremony the staff were the perfect balance of being on hand to ensure that everything ran smoothly and inconspicuous when and where required.

    I am sure that we are not unique in having a hiccup in our wedding proceedings, however speaking to the staff ours was a first for Quantock Lakes. Unfortunately right at the start of food service a guest became worryingly ill and a 999 call was made. The staff were extremely quick to take charge of the situation, the lead coordinator Kelly directing events and even the chef appearing from the kitchen (as a first aider). Once again, they were exactly the right balance of hands on, whilst also leaving the family time and space to deal with the situation. The local fire brigade first responders, an ambulance and the air ambulance arrived within a very short amount of time. The patient was given the best care possible and after well over an hour they were taken to hospital in the ambulance (I am pleased to say that they were discharged the following day).

    Guests were invited back into the dining area and the meal carried on as if nothing had happened, this is testament to the skill and dedication of the chef, head of house Rosy and all the staff. A very upsetting event, which could easily have affected the married couple’s day, was contained and handled with minimum impact to the wedding.

    I can honestly say that all the staff that I interacted with and, I am sure many other members of the team, went above and beyond what was expected of them and ensured that the bride and grooms’ day was every bit the day that they wanted to remember.

    Best venue ever!

    My husband and I recently got married in May 2022 at the most stunning venue, Quantock Lakes. Our journey to becoming husband & wife was not an easy one. We originally viewed this venue back in 2018 when we started planning our wedding and fell in love with it, however being from Exeter we opted for another venue closer to home. Our wedding was originally planned for 2020 which landed us in the middle of the pandemic and we had to postpone our wedding twice. We had so many problems with the venue we booked that we decided we could no longer have our wedding there and decided to revisit Quantock Lakes.
    Changing our venue to Quantock Lakes was the best thing we ever did and wow, what a venue this place is. From the moment we set our new date and booked the venue, I knew this was meant to be all along. The staff and wedding planners were absolutely amazing from the initial viewing right the way through to our wedding day.
    As we approached our 2021 date, rules and regulations were still in place and we decided we weren’t going to achieve the special day we had dreamed of and saved for. We approached Quantock Lakes about our concerns and they could not have been more supportive and changed our date to 2022.
    Before this, the wedding planning process for me was starting to feel depressing, I was not excited and instead felt anxious and stressed throughout. Once we began our wedding planning with Quantock Lakes everything changed. I felt a spark in planning our wedding again, support from the venue we had booked, and an overall feeling of excitement for our special day.
    The communication throughout was incredible, if I ever had a query someone got back to me straight away and I never felt I was asking too many questions. Sarah (our wedding planner) could not have been more helpful and guided me through the whole process.
    We all stayed at The Granary, The Farmhouse and The Wedding Village the night before and the night of the wedding. Having our family and friends stay the night before made everything so special. We hosted a BBQ and everyone had so much fun the evening before.
    The bridal prep at The Granary the morning of the wedding was absolutely perfect.
    Having everyone together the night before and all of our guests being able to stay and walk over to the venue made everything even more special and prolonged our wedding celebrations. Having so many options for accommodation really makes this venue extra special and makes it so easy for the whole wedding party and the guests.
    Our wedding day itself was everything we could have wished for and more. All of the staff made sure I didn’t have to do or worry about a thing and we could not be more grateful for the day they blessed us with.
    It really was absolutely perfect and this was all down to this beautiful venue and the staff.
    The saying “everything happens for a reason” could not have been more accurate for us.
    We really can’t recommend Quantock Lakes highly enough - thank you for giving us the wedding of dreams!

    Simply amazing

    We have been to many weddings where things don’t always go to plan and the wedding staff don’t always have transitions running smoothly, but I cannot fault anything on our wedding day, the staff and structure that Quantock have in place is simply perfect and we are so grateful to have had the experience we did!

    We had soooo many comments on how beautiful the venue and accommodation was, the best that guests had been to!

    The BEST day of our lives - thank you!

    Quantock Lakes's reply:

    You put us first and made everything feel so seamless and effortless. Thank you.

    The most beautiful day of our lives made possible by so many suppliers but mostly Quantock Lakes.

    In 2019 we viewed 3 wedding venues in 1 day, not only was this ambitious but 2 were perfectly matching what we thought we wanted - a big manor/stately home.

    Quantock Lakes was last on the itinerary and an hours drive from home in a different county. We met Laura and viewed as the sun was setting and were blown away on our drive home, knowing already nothing would compare to what we had just seen.

    Quantock Lakes was not what we thought we wanted and turned out to be everything and more. I cannot recommend to anyone enough to go and view this beautiful place and feel it for yourself. The venue offers so much flexibility to make the day completely yours. Nothing was too much to ask, nothing seemed impossible and everyone involved on the planning team really enabled us to have our day the way we wanted it no matter what. We never experienced any pressures or time constraints from the venue, honestly planning and hosting our wedding here really was the easiest and most relaxing thing ever - unheard of right!?

    The most outstanding part of Quantock Lakes for us was the onsite accommodation for 60+ of our guests. We were able to have all of our guests stay with us for 2 nights which meant the wedding day wasn’t full of hellos, it was instead an amazing extension of time spent with our friends and family. The Quantock Barns, Granary and Farmhouse are all out of this world and our guests were blown away with their little 2 night getaway with us which made everything so much easier & relaxing for our guests and enabled us to throw a welcome party the night before which was such a special part of our few days there.

    Every team member has been absolutely amazing throughout our wedding planning and we cannot thank you all enough. Incredible venue and incredible team, you all made our dreams come true, put us first and made everything feel so seamless and effortless. Thank you.

    Wow, your review means everything to us Becca & Katie - we all wish you a wonderful marriage and wish we could rewind and do it all again. With all of our love and congratulations from The Dream Team at Quantock Lakes. x

    Accommodation is unreal! We will be forever grateful.

    There isn’t enough time or space to express how amazing the entire team at Quantock are! From the get-go when Laura showed us around we were blown away and just knew this was THE place to get married. The food is delicious and the accommodation is unreal! We booked in 2018 and every time we have visited, we got the same butterfly feeling! Unfortunately, we had to postpone the wedding and we couldn’t have asked for any more support from Naomi & the team with this. After moving the date twice we finally made it to our wedding! When we arrived everything was set up and ready, they talked us through what was going to happen on the day and were on hand the entire time making sure nothing went wrong. Even when the red wine got spilt down my dress, Nadine was there right away helping to get it out! The communications throughout were amazing and any questions we had, Sarah was there with the answer for us. You made our day so special and we will be forever grateful for everything you all have done for us. Thank you so so much. Nat & Dean x

    Quantock Lakes's reply:

    Outstanding dream team at Quantock Lakes.

    Lucky us that we got the perfect venue and outstanding dream team of Laura, Naomi, Sarah, Nadine and Lizzie. We had to postpone our wedding a couple of times (thanks to COVID-19) and all the while they kept in touch and reassured us that we would get our day. And what a day we had! Whether it be a flower dude or Postman Pat delivering the speeches, nothing was too much trouble.
    Each and every member of the Quantock Lakes team are amazing and I cannot rate them highly enough.

    Over the moon. Thank you for everything.

    Me and my now husband had our wedding at Quantock Lakes on the 23rd of January 2020. Our amazing wedding planners Naomi and Nadine helped us every step of the way and made our day so special. Every single detail was spot on and nothing was too difficult for them to do for us. Even down to the little special details of lighting the candles in our room for when we arrived in the evening after the wedding. Cannot rate them enough. Over the moon. Thank you for everything! Love, a very happy Bride. xx

    The best wedding day in the world.

    Quantock Lakes was the first venue we viewed and we instantly knew when we walked in that it was the one. Laura was our first contact, she was amazing, made us feel so comfortable and told us everything we needed to know before making a decision. Without her efforts our decision may have been different. The process after this was so easy, with the use of the online documents and quick communication. Any changes or requirements we had, no matter how late, the team were happy to sort it for us.?On the day, Nadine was brilliant, we had nothing to worry about ourselves as she made sure everything ran smoothly. Things were done better than we ever imagined. There was nothing she didn't mind doing, even cleaning soup off my maid of honours dress.?We had the Carve your own for the main meal and it was out of this world. All of our guests absolutely loved it and we've had so many comments about it. The evening food was also delicious.?We made use of all the accommodation on site, it was immaculate, had all the facilities you could ever need and made the wedding into a few days of socialising with our family and friends.?We would highly recommend choosing this venue. The 4 girls are so great who made planning the wedding so much easier. We wish we could relive the whole day. Thank you so much for allowing us to have the best wedding day in the world.

    The wedding team were so supportive.

    ad an amazing weekend in October 2019 for Amy and Joe’s wedding. The wedding team were so supportive, gave advice and ideas when needed and accommodated all that Amy and Joe wanted. The accommodation was beautiful and spotlessly clean, the wedding venue could not be faulted and food/ service great. Would highly recommend this stunning venue and the wedding team .

    The team pay unbelievable attention to detail.

    Where can we begin when conveying how amazing Quantock Lakes was as our wedding venue? From the very moment, we first met Laura to view the venue and accommodation, we couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else. The team there are absolutely fantastic and so friendly. They pay unbelievable attention to even the smallest details to make sure your wedding is perfect so you can relax and enjoy your special day with your guests. Everyone who was there kept telling us how beautiful Quantock Lakes is, how great the food is, how comfortable the accommodation is and how it was one of the best weddings they had been to. Wendy and I can never thank you all enough. Especially Laura, Naomi, Nadine and Sarah for helping us have the perfect wedding.
