We honestly couldnt be happier
By Kirsty & Aaron, on 20 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Sep 2018
Thanks so, so much to you and your fabulous team at South Lodge. Everyone did an amazing job and made us feel special, not just throughout our entire stay but also throughout the whole planning process. A special thanks to you, Cat, Mark and the rest of the team for making the day so wonderful. The guest services team (especially Mike) really helped the day go perfectly. We honestly couldn’t be happier!
All our guests complimented the food (so compliments to the chef) and the serving team, they were all so friendly and professional.
A big thank you for extending our stay in Farriers for the extra night, it really started our honeymoon off nicely and allowed us a much needed rest the next day.
An amazing day!

I just wanted to say a massive Thankyou to you and all the staff for Saturday.
Please also thank the toastmaster on our behalf. He did a brilliant job!
Every time I had a query or question you always made me feel calm and helped me every time, I was so happy to see you Saturday morning.
I had the best day of my life, beautiful people, venue and the food was amazing.
Our guests enjoyed the day and I have received so many messages saying it was an amazing day.
We would not of had that without you and everyone at Southlodge.
A massive thank you!

Just wanted to say a massive ‘thank you’ to you and everyone at South Lodge for the most amazing day.
The day exceeding all expectation - South Lodge were superb.
When I say ’South Lodge’ I obviously refer to ALL staff. From yourself (prior and during the event), reception and concierge, waiting/bar staff, Marc, Cat, Liz and the team.
Obviously the celebrations continued in to breakfast on Saturday - which again was excellent.
As you know South Lodge is a very special place to us as a family and this has been completely reinforced by the professionalism and care given to us on the day.
We have received a huge amount of compliments regarding the venue, the grounds, the service, etc…….
Our photographer totally captured the feel of the entire day - dreamy and relaxed - everything we wanted it to be.
So - please would you pass our thanks on to all involved?

Everyone had a fantastic time. We can’t speak highly enough of the service from
Cat and her team (Amanda was also wonderful) on the day. It was a brilliant day.
Thank you to the whole team
By Jude & Ben, on 15 May 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Apr 2018
We had a fantastic time and wanted to say a big thank you to the team for making our day so special.
All our guests have been very complimentary about the whole day.
A big thank you to Rory Rory De Coster and the kitchen team for making such amazing food and catering to all the different guest requests!
Thank you to the whole banqueting team - so many people commented on the service - discreet but attentive.
We wanted to say a special thanks to Cat Cat Barnes and Oscar Oscar Fletcher - so lovely to see the same faces at our menu tasting and at our wedding (and in Oscar's case the breakfast the following day too!).
Could you also pass on our thanks to Marc the toast master for making sure everything ran to plan. It made the day much more relaxed for us and we didn't get a chance to thank him in person on the day.
Finally, a big thanks to you and the planning team for helping to arrange the whole day. We picked South Lodge as we felt once we had agreed the details we could relax and hand over the organising - and we weren't disappointed, it was fabulous.
Once again thank you to the whole team at South Lodge. "

Jordan and I just wanted thank you for all the hard work that went into helping us plan our wedding day. It really was such a wonderful day, everything looked so beautiful and it we couldn’t have done it without all your help.
We can’t thank you enough, it was utterly amazing. I have to apologise but I can’t remember the ladies names who helped us through our day, I feel terrible! But we couldn’t have got through the day without her, she was superb. We’re both so overwhelmed by it all and can’t quite believe how quickly the day went.
Please thank all the staff who attended to us and our guests yesterday, who made our day run so so smoothly.
Huge thank you to you all!
Cannot believe it is over
By Shelley & Josh, on 15 May 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Apr 2018
I can’t believe it’s all over, we are suffering from post wedding blues. We had the most incredible day and we had nothing but lovely compliments from all our guests.
All the staff were amazing, we couldn’t fault a thing. Then venue is absolutely perfect.
Some of our guests are already looking to plan another stay and one has booked an afternoon tea. So I’d say this was a success.
We can’t wait for the spa to be finished so we can plan our next trip.
Thank you for all your help and advice throughout our journey.

I would like to thank you and the staff at South Lodge for a really wonderful wedding for the on Saturday. It was an unforgettable day for the bride and groom and for both families and all our guests. The hotel looked very festive and the hard work from all the staff made sure that it was a very special day for all concerned. We would particularly like to thank you for the planning of the day which took place over many months.
We had a wonderful time and were very pleased indeed with the day. It was a very happy and wonderful day for all involved.
We did not want the day to end!
By Lucy & Stewart, on 08 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 07 Oct 2017
We had the most amazing day, thank you It was just the absolute dream venue and couldn't have gone any better - it just went far too quickly! I got quite emotional as we were driving out of the hotel on the sunday morning as I didn't want to leave and for it all to be over. Thank you so much to everyone at the hotel who was involved in our wedding; particularly Holly for the amazing organisation and being so helpful - especially in replying to my almost daily emails towards the end! Also a big thank you to Cat and her team too. The service was outstanding and we have just been bowled over by it all really. Everything ran so smoothly. So many of our guests commented on the great service and said how friendly, polite and attentive all the staff were. The food was also commented on as being amazing and lots of references made to the pannacotta being the best dessert they'd ever had! Stewart and I have been talking about how the little touches in terms of service just made it even more impressive. I noticed my bouquet had been put with the cake so I'd obviously put it down somewhere earlier on and somebody had picked it up and put it there. We noticed that if anything ever was left anywhere, it always ended up back in the right place and how everything we needed was taken up in our room and then the rest of our things all packed and ready to take away on the Sunday.
Thank you for the best day we've ever had!
By Leah and Michael, on 08 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 29 Sep 2017
Thanks for all your help around the wedding, I know I was very fussy on a few points but felt the efforts the hotel went to on the day were AMAZING!
Cat was brilliant on the day, neither of us had to worry about anything from the minute we both got there it was all taken care of from start to finish and ran exactly how we had asked for it to with no changes which was amazing as we didn’t have to make any decisions or confirm anything on the day! Having Cat there put our minds at ease and really did take any worry’s away so we could just enjoy the day with nothing else to take care of.
Our guests have had nothing but amazing things to say about the hotel, food and staff throughout the day which we definitely agree with so thank you all so much for making our day so extra special.
Best Day of Our Lives
