Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Phelps, on 15 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 12 Jan 2019

Hi Danielle, Just a quick email to say thank you so, so much to you and your team for helping with our day on Saturday. Everything went so smoothly and perfect and the rooms looked stunning. All of our guests have commented on how amazing the hotel looked, how well it was decorated and how accommodating and welcoming every member of staff was. The food was phenomenal and all of our guests commented on how tasty it was too! Genuinely thank you all so much - you all really helped to make our day so perfect and seamless. A special thank you also to Dave who was just absolutely amazing on our day with us and all our guests. He is even a mind reader! Whilst I was speaking to the registrars before the ceremony I thought how much I needed a drink and when I turned around he had a glass of lemonade in his hand! He really was fantastic. Thanks again and we will be back to stay and eat very soon! Best wishes, Mark and Fay Phelps xx

The food and the staff that waited on us were fantastic and there was not one complaint or gripe from anyone all day & night. We will be forever grateful that we came across Stirk House by chance and I am so happy Stu took the plunge and booked it without telling me! Haha. Much love and we hope to see you next year on our Anniversary or around Christmas time 2019. Lots of Love Donna & Stu

We just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone, especially Danielle & Sarah, for making our day truly magical. From the moment we pulled up to view Stirk House last year I knew it was exactly where I wanted to get married. However, your team then went above and beyond to ensure everything was 100% perfect for our big day. It was so much more than we ever expected. All of the small details were covered by yourselves and we felt at ease knowing everything was in good hands. Many of our guests who had never been to Stirk House before commented on the outstanding beauty of the grounds and the amazing quality of the food, needless to say, they thoroughly enjoyed every moment, as did we! It was everything I wanted and so much more, thank you for making the best day of my life so wonderful!

Amazing Day!

Amazing memories
Venue Service

By Aidan & Elena Meir, on 09 Oct 2014

My wife and I had the privilege of booking Stirk House for the 5th of September 2014, and from the outset, the staff there were extremely friendly and welcoming; helping us to plan our special day. They were extremely supportive with our ideas on how we wanted our venue to look and how we wanted our day to go. My family and I stayed in the hotel the evening before and found the hotel itself extremely hospitable, the rooms were excellent and there was always a friendly face ready to assist us with anything we needed. The wedding day itself went perfectly and small changes that needed to be accommodated for were dealt with professionally and efficiently. The meal was extremely delightful and again the service was first class. The evening reception was magical and added to our extra special day. All in all we could not find any fault in the service we received and will enjoy wonderful memories of our wedding day for years to come. We would love to visit Stirk House again; a beautiful gem in the heart of the English country side with breath taking views in every direction. A special thank you to Denise and Gillian and every member of the Stirk House team for making our day so amazing. Aidan and Elena Meir

Brilliant Day
Venue Service

By Sarah & Stuart Hunn, on 16 Sep 2014

From start to finish our wedding day was perfect. The hotel is immaculate, it is very clean with lovely fresh flowers, there is a nice a bar area and a lovely lounges to relax in. The wedding planners Denise and Gillian was both very helpful throughout and couldn't do enough for us. Helen was also helpful on reception. The grounds of stirk house are amazing and the pictures are brilliant with the lovely scenery in the background. On our wedding day we arrived and was welcomed with a glass of complimentary bubbly which was lovely, we then had our wedding breakfast, the room was decorated to a high standard and not one thing was out of place. The food was delicious and we had some good comments back from our guests too, we even got asked for seconds. which not a lot of places will do. At night the room opened up to a larger room where we had approx. 130 guests and there was plenty of space without it been too crowded, there is also a private bar in the function room if you want to escape the music. we used the DJ that usually works at stirk house, and he was good and was well organised. he played until 1am in which was perfect. The breakfast the next day was lovely, lots of choice too. we didn't use the spa as we didn't have time but it looked good. upon check out all guests received homemade biscuits this was a lovely finishing touch. Do not hesitate booking here for your wedding, booking here you know that it is in the Stirk houses safe hands and you will have nothing to worry about. everything just went perfect for us.

Well what can we say ! There aren't enough superlatives to describe how fantastic wonderful amazing and beautiful it was. The staff were amazingly professional and polite at all times. Never once did we worry about a single thing as the team did everything down to a tee. The food was out of this world the setting was even better. Every single guest was treated as an individual and all stated just how amazing the while day was. If you go anywhere else for your wedding you are absolutely crazy. This is like a dream come true and we can only say Thankyou from the bottom of out hearts just how special you all made our day x

Absolute High
Venue Service

By Jayne & Damon Clark, on 06 Sep 2014

We are still on an absolute high from our wedding at the Stirk House Hotel in Gisburn!! We are the most amazing day with our closest friends and family. The staff at the Stirk House were so helpful and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble and every time we visited we were looked after so well. The communication leading up to the actual day was super, all our questions were answered and every single person we spoke to went out of their way to help us. On the actual day I made a last minute decision to call down early in the morning to drop off our dresses. When I phoned to check that this was ok they were more than happy for us to call and even offered us a bacon sandwich!! The rest of the day went amazingly and we honestly cannot fault every one of the staff. The Pendle Suite looked fabulous for the service and the Ballroom looked stunning for the wedding breakfast and evening reception. Everyone commented on how great the food was and what fabulous service we all received. The accommodation was excellent for ourselves and the wedding guests, plus the breakfast the next morning was a real treat with the high standards of food and service continuing! We also got some amazing photographs on the stunning grounds that bring back fantastic memories of our special day! We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at the Stirk House and would not hesitate in recommending the venue to family and friends. Mr and Mrs Clark

Amazing Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Rachelle Burney, on 27 Jul 2014

We got married at The Stirk House Hotel 7th June 2014 and it couldn't have been anymore perfect if we tried. From the very first day we booked the venue up until the wedding day, everyone at the venue were extremely helpful and could not do enough for us. On the day the whole team were extremely attentive to every need, the food was fantastic and it was enjoyed by all. To top off the meal, the waiters came out with extra food for everyone, I have never seen so many happy faces. We'd definitely recommend the chicken :) The weather wasn't great to start off with but the grounds offer many nooks and crannies to get a variety of photos done. The setting is stunning, with fantastic views. The rooms are all lovely, very comfy and quaint. They aren't modern, but they shouldn't be, they are perfect for the venue and you feel like your worlds away from work etc, just what I think is needed especially on such a big day. We can't praise the staff highly enough, each and every one of them. From the bar staff, to the waiters, to the reception to the management.....everyone was fantastic. The breakfast in the morning was delish, with plenty of variety. We loved the homemade marmalade, it's yum. We will be returning again, for not just the memories, but also to see everyone and relax in such a beautiful place and surroundings. Enjoy!!

Stirk House did everything to ensure we had a stress free, fabulous wedding. The food is amazing and you are offered extra food items which everyone thought was a bonus! We really enjoyed our wedding at Stirk House Hotel. We would definitely recommend it to people, it is a fabulous place! Also Stirk House are pet friendly, so our little dog got to be a part of our special day!

We got married at the Stirk House Hotel on the 22nd March 2014, what an amazing day we had. Our ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception was held here. We couldn't of asked for a better day. Denise and the rest of the staff are so helpful and friendly nothing is too much trouble to them. The whole day went to plan and ran so smoothly. The food was amazing it could not be faulted. Right from the first time we visited the hotel we loved it and knew this was where we wanted to get married. The hotel and the grounds are lovely and it feels so welcoming. All our guests complimented on how much they enjoyed the day and how nice the staff and the hotel are. We also enjoyed a 2 night stay in the bridal suite which was great. Would defiantly recommend the Stirk House as the perfect wedding venue.
