We can't recommend The Moat House enough, we had the most amazing wedding day from start to finish! The staff were incredible; so professional, helpful, friendly and made sure everything ran smoothly throughout the whole weekend. They keep in touch throughout the planning process too, and have been beyond accommodating for changes throughout covid (this was our 3rd date change). A big thank you to Nichola, Vicky and Vanessa for being so wonderful. Food is exceptional, we had a wedding tasting included in the package for our wedding breakfast, as well as a choice of BBQ buffet or pizza for the evening which was a huge hit! We're still on cloud 9 and will never forget this amazing day and how wonderful everyone is who works here. Thank you! Kate and Spence xxSent on 18/08/2021

Our day, our way!
We cannot recommend The Moat House highly enough following our wedding in July.
From the initial meeting with the wedding team through to the wedding day itself, the venue and its staff were professional, accommodating and supportive. Despite numerous date changes (third time lucky!) and the uncertainty as a result of the pandemic, the staff were great and responded to all of our questions, queries and alterations promptly.
The venue itself offers so much, from its idyllic setting and surroundings to the grounds and buildings themselves. The Colin Lewis suite proved to be the perfect space for our Ceremony, enabling us to share our special moment with a small number of family and friends. With its exposed rustic oak beams, it required little more decoration. The Acton Suite provided a modern and spacious setting for the evening reception, safely and comfortably (based on the easing of the pandemic restrictions) accommodating our additional guests, with access to the patio area and the canal side to the rear. Our guests were extremely complimentary of the grounds and the venue, including the bedrooms for those that stayed.
The food offered on the day was amazing. Having sampled the menu options beforehand (menu tasting included in package), we were able to select our favourite meal for our guests and the catering team were able to accommodate the diverse dietary requirements. The ice-cream cart was also a big hit with guests (and ourselves) given the sunny weather!
We are truly grateful to all of those who were involved in making our wedding day perfect!

Our perfect Wedding
We originally booked our wedding for 100 guests to take place in March but due to COVID our wedding was cancelled due to it being just 3 days after lockdown. We were heartbroken but the staff at The Moat House were on hand immediately to arrange another date for our reduced number of guests. This took a considerable amount of emails and calls and a total change to our special day however the day we got married could not have been any more perfect. The staff were all fantastic, the food was outstanding and every last detail we had planned was brought to life by the team. Our guests have all said what a wonderful wedding it was and it was really the most perfect day.
The venue is charming, has plenty of spaces and facilities to cater to everyones needs and the photographs from there are really spectacular too. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Moat for weddings we are just so happy we chose to have our wedding there!Sent on 13/10/2020

Outstanding and beautiful venue and staff
This venue is so beautiful with the oak beams and a more intimate feel to the Colin Lewis suite and the spacious and fresh feel to the Acton suite. The grounds and surrounding area in which the venue is situated within are absolutely stunning.Sent on 31/08/2020
As much as we fell in love with the venue itself, it was the staff that work here that definitely swayed it for us. From the first time we visited The Moat House to view the venue, they could not have been more helpful and that didn’t just stop there. They continued to help and guide us through our planning, was at the end of every email, phone call and visit (Which was probably more often than usual with Coronavirus and were so accommodating to every changes that happened).
We had visited many other venues beforehand and just felt like another couple that were looking to use their venue to get married. However, The Moat House were so personal and genuinely cared and wanted to make our day perfect.
We have felt so welcomed by them and they could not have done anymore for us. The Moat House made our day so special and we felt like V.I.P’s.
Even though we had a restricted wedding because of Coronavirus. We did not feel like we had missed out on anything that we would have done had it not been restricted and that is down to The Moat House and their lovely staff. Our day could not have been more magical.

Best Day Ever!! Magical
I wouldn’t know where to start regarding our wedding day. It really was the best day ever! Myself and my husband got married on December 27th 2017 at The Moat House, Acton Trussell. From the moment we went to the open day the staff were amazing and answered all of my silly and sometimes crazy questions/ideas and made us feel at ease. They even let me have real reindeer on the grounds which I had organised through a local charity! On the day they really did make us feel so special and kept checking everything was how we wanted and that we were okay throughout the day. I really didn’t want the day to ever end and I can’t fault any part of our special day. The food, the staff, the location. Everything was perfect!!! I would highly recommend it to anyone.Sent on 10/04/2019
