Perfect, Perfect, Perfect

Even though Tracey has already left a wonderful review, and covered all that I was going to say, I wanted to be another voice! We were also there for my sister-in-law's wedding last weekend, and it was truly perfect. Jill and Steve and the team worked tirelessly all weekend. The house is beautiful. The welcome was outstanding. The effort made for the children was very much appreciated by them and us - both the indoor and outdoor games were in use all weekend. The food was fabulous and the bar well stocked! My family stayed in Room 8. It was STUNNING. I know that other reviewers have made comments about the shared bathrooms, and I realise, we were lucky enough to have our own; but for a wedding scenario, where lots of people know each other, its absolutely fine. Springkell are able to make weddings/events as formal or relaxed at the guests would like; and we were so lucky to experience the relaxed version. We were really made to feel that it was our home for the weekend (including coming down to breakfast in our pjs). The wedding went off without a hitch, and the reception room was beautifully put together. I think that V&K followed Springkell's recommendations for photographer, make-up artist and hairdresser; and all were brilliant. We had a lot of fun getting ready. I think that the wedding day itself can go by far too quickly, so to have the opportunity to be together all weekend, in this amazing place, was very special. Huge thanks to V&K for your generosity, to Springkell for your hospitality, and to the gods for the weather. P.s. I only went into the downstairs ladies toilet as we were leaving. The Audrey Hepburn picture is perfect - this was the theme

Incredible Wedding Weekend
Venue Service

By Lucy and Kevin, on 06 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 04 Nov 2017

Dear James, just a little note to give you our heartfelt thanks for an incredible Wedding Weekend at Springkell. The effort you went to, to make it special for us, is genuinely overwhelming, and your staff are a credit to you. We wanted something intimate for family, and a big party and we couldn't have even hoped for anything more wonderful. The little 3 night mini-moon in Peebles to rest and recuperate after it was most certainly needed! We all loved it so much that we would love to book Springkell again in the future for a family get together. Thank you, and lots of love Lucy & Kevin xxx

Fantastic Wedding Weekend
Venue Service

By Adam Camrass, on 13 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 22 Oct 2017

Fantastic Wedding Weekend I recently had the privilege of getting married at this beautiful house and setting. Over the course of the weekend, we were treated to the highest level of service on all fronts – and I can’t thank James enough for this. He truly went the extra mile to ensure everything ran smoothly and all needs were catered for, and made us all feel very welcome in his house. In addition, Fiona was very helpful in the run up to the wedding. On the day of the wedding, there was a most welcome guest at breakfast – Pippa – James’s delightful black Labrador, who – it must be said – had a bit of a penchant for croissants. She also helped to put my mother at ease, who had to leave our family Labrador with friends back in London. There is something very special about celebrating one’s wedding at Springkell. The house and grounds are very well maintained, and provide the perfect setting for such an occasion. Furthermore, the accommodation is of a high standard, the food is superb and the bar is very well stocked – catering for even the most discerning guest.

Just a note to thank everyone

A huge thank you
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Kevin and Andrea McDonald, on 12 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Oct 2017

To James, Fiona, & the entire Springkell Team. This is just a small note to say a huge thank you for making our wedding truly special. I know you will get this a lot but we really couldn't have chosen better. You welcomed us into your home with such warmth and kindness. Nothing absolutely nothing was too much trouble the entire weekend. You let us put our own stamp on it which made it so personal. The hospitality of your staff is overwhelming & they put us on a pedestal the entire weekend. We would like to put a special mention to Jill & Steve as not only were they incredibly attentive, but so friendly that they made all the expected never disappear. Fiona, we couldn't have done it without you. It's a challenge organising a Wedding from a distance, (especially Cornwall) but you made it so easy which is a true credit to you, and again just added to the wonderful experience you gave us. & James, thank you for letting us use your very special house, your hosptality & generosity are a rarity & one that left a memorable mark on both of us and our guests. We have had so many wonderful compliments on our Wedding, the venue, staff, organisation, relaxed atmosphere, food.....oh let's not forget the food. Terrence is amazing, breakfast, lunch & dinner everyday was faultless, so thank you!!! I hope you all know that you are a very special team, the location is amazing, but it is the events you create that are truly unique & you should be very very proud of what you do for couples on their wedding day. An unforgettable day. We will be back for special occasions!!

Could not have asked for more
Venue Service

By Mrs Rowe, on 13 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Sep 2017

Just had my daughter and son in laws wedding there on 2nd Sept and from the moment we arrived on the Friday we could not have asked for more. The staff could not do enough for us and kept there distance but were always there when needed. The whole experience was brilliant, lovely venue and the meal was beautiful as was the breakfast. We had the run of the whole house and there were several children in the company who were kept busy with PlayStation room, rocking horse and of course the trampoline outside was a hit. Thank you all very much for making my daughters day the day she had dreamed of.

othing was too much trouble everything perfect
Venue Service

By Carmen Parrish, on 13 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 08 Aug 2017

We have just got back from my friends wedding it was a small wedding with family and close friends, but that didn't matter to James and his team. They were so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble everything was perfect, even the weather so we had the wedding out side. I would recommend Springkell to anyone who has a special occasion it was like home from home but more luxury with staff on hand at any time you needed them loved it.

I would highly recommend this venue
Venue Service

By Aiden Livingstone Cobb, on 13 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 04 Aug 2017

My reason for being at Springkell House yesterday was officiating as Toastmaster at Kimberley and Darren's wedding now officially Mr & Mrs Johnstone. I was extremely impressed with the venue the house and grounds were outstanding and Lee, Nathan and the team were welcoming and professional and I can understand why events would be held there. Being a Toastmaster you have time to observe venues approach to events and I was impressed with the team's service and their ability to foresee their customer needs. The food presentation and service was first class. I would highly recommend this venue to any couples looking to book their very special day, you won't be disappointed.

Springkell is the most perfect wedding venue
Venue Service

By Jane Wright, on 13 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 22 Jul 2017

Springkell is the most perfect wedding venue. Within seconds of arriving, we knew we wanted to get married there. Fiona and James were so amazing up to the day, answering my numerous emails and helping as much as they could to make the day run smoothly and make it personal to us. Since our arrival on the Friday, the staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating. Gill was so excited to show us the dining room which she had decorated and laid out - it was the most beautiful room I'd ever seen. On the morning of the wedding, the staff let me have breakfast in my room with my parents which was lovely and made sure we were happy and had everything we needed all morning. Throughout the day, guests were commenting on how helpful the staff were and what a beautiful house it was. I am so glad we found Springkell - we will definitely be back for a future anniversary!
