Amazing venue!!

We got married in March and wow it absolutely exceeded our expectations, right from the initial viewing back in 2021 we were wowed by Swancar. We viewed lots of venues but as soon as we looked here we both said yes straight away.
We were assigned a wedding co-ordinator who was Tammy and she was amazing, every meeting with her was great, lots of ideas and inspiration, very responsive to emails, the week before there were lots of little things I was worrying about and she responded to everything and ensured the whole day ran smoothly.
Honestly every little detail is thought about, the whole day runs so smoothly and every member of staff there is happy and enjoys your special day which is so nice to see! The food is amazing and portion sizes very generous, evening buffet we went for the chip shop buffet and you won’t be disappointed! Guests say the bar man was very generous too!
We stayed in the old stables the night before which is absolutely stunning and perfect for your night before. The whole experience is just exceptional and we 100% chose the right venue for our special day and one we will never forget! If you are considering getting married here just go for it you honestly won’t regret it!

Best Day Ever!

We had the most amazing wedding at Swancar Farm just before Christmas 2023. The planning support was brilliant from Hayley, the day itself was just perfect and in no small part due to Louise, Caitlin, Mike and all of the team there who were just wonderful!
I don’t have wedding blues but I do have Swancar blues as I wouldn’t want to have had our day anywhere else.

My husband and I got married here on 18th November 2019 and I can honestly say it we had the most amazing experience!
From the moment we booked right through to the morning after the wedding the staff, especially Louise were absolutely incredible, the whole process has been nothing but easy and enjoyable.
Nothing is a problem and Louise did everything she could to personalise our day so that it was exactly what we wanted.
The house itself and the surroundings are stunning and don’t even require any extra touches to make the place look absolutely incredible on your day. There’s an amazing choice of food for your wedding breakfast and evening buffet, which was beautiful. Throughout the day we were constantly checked upon to make sure we were okay, if we ever had an empty glass our drinks were refilled free of charge and the breakfast the following morning was lovely too.
The bridal suite and other guest rooms are beautiful and very comfortable.
The only thing I can say is if your thinking about choosing this place for your wedding, DO IT! You will not regret it at all, it makes your special day so much more special to have the VIP experience we received.
Would just like to make sure Louise gets the recognition she deserves because she has made what is supposed to be quite a stressful experience in terms of planning, so easy and enjoyable, she’s brilliant at her job!
Get married here!

Good afternoon Louise,

Now the dust has finally settled, myself and Lorna wanted to put in writing a massive 'thank you' to yourself and the team.

Our wedding day really was a dream. From the ceremony to the meal and evening do, it all went perfectly and our guests had nothing but praise for staff, the venue and the incredible food. A special thank you for helping to arrange the 10/15 minutes to play the guitar to Lorna too (Her ears have just about recovered), and to Sam on the day before our wedding, she really went above and beyond to help.

We'll be recommending the venue to all of our friends and family in the hope we'll be able to return soon!

We had our wedding day here on 22nd March 2019 & cannot recommend this venue enough. Apart from it's beautiful building & interior the staff were also amazing. Rachael our coordinator made the whole planning process enjoyable & nothing was too much trouble. She was always there to answer any questions & on the day she worked tirelessly to ensure the whole day went perfectly. The bar staff & servers were brilliant as was Mike who was very attentive in making sure we were happy. The food was amazing as were the portion sizes! I stayed in the old stables the night before which was absolutely beautiful. We have no doubt that we picked the perfect venue & would like to thank all at Swancar farm for making our day very special & memorable. Love the new Mr & Mrs Scott xx

Special Thanks

We got married at Swancar Farm at the beginning of February. Everything was beautiful and went without a hitch! The whole team were helpful and professional - special thanks to Mike, who made sure that the day ran smoothly throughout. We both said after the day that we couldn’t envisage getting married anywhere else, it was truly the perfect location! Thanks so much to everyone ??

I cannot thank all the staff at Swancar enough for making our wedding day one to remember.
Everything ran so smoothly and the guests were blown away by how professional and well organised everything was, and even how stunning the venue is!
Rachael was extremely helpful and was our personal contact leading up to the wedding and on the day and she was fantastic.
I really can not recommend this venue enough, it truly is perfect.

Thank you for helping us create such special memories, we hope you all enjoyed sharing our special day with us.

Thank you

I would like to sent you an enormous thank you for making my daughter's wedding day an absolute joy. Nicole and Daniel got married at Swancar Farm last Sunday and apart from a little rain the day went without a single hitch. Rachel and Michael made sure that everything ran smoothly and without exception all of the staff went out of their way to help.

We rented the cottage out for the night before and it was beautiful. Everything that we could have asked for.
We would not hesitate to recommend you as a fantastic venue. So many guests commented on how beautiful everything looked and what excellent service you provided.
So once again. thank you, for making it an amazing day to remember.

Thank you

We would like to say a huge Thankyou, and sometimes words aren’t enough, but we are so grateful with how amazing you have been throughout the two years of planning and the actual day itself.... it truly couldn’t of been more perfect for us both.
Everything ran smoothly, no stressful areas, food was delicious and said by all, you and your staff were there every step of the way.

It’s one day in your life you want to go perfect, and it meant so much to us that it did, it was everything we ever wanted it to be; full of love, laughter, no stress and lots of memories.

Thank you again Hayley, I really hope we were a relaxed couple to work with as I know how busy you can be.
Take care,

Love Mr and Mrs Scarborough x

I just wanted to say from the bottom of our hearts, a huge thank you for everything you did to make our wedding day the most perfect, special day. From the planning meetings, to setting up the day before, to meeting us with our prosecco on the day, and adding extra guests at such short notice - everything you did was wonderful and so organised. I never felt stressed once. You made sure everything was taken care of and every detail was considered.
Could you please pass on our thanks to all of the Swancar staff too as they were all wonderful, we really felt that nothing was too much trouble and that everyone went above and beyond for us. We felt so special.
Thanks so much again,
Charlotte and Tom xxxxx
