    A Stunning naturally beautiful venue

    This venue was amazing we booked this venu before viewing it in person it has natural beauty no need to dress the barns at all really it's stunning and the grounds make it magical. The lake and the garden pool are fantastic back drops for wedding images . And the beauty of the country house had us astounded I could have sat for hours admiring the old beams and features. We wish we could visit it again.

    From the get go we knew that we were in safe hands

    Hi Matthew, We just wanted to say a massive thank you for our amazing wedding day. From the get go we knew that we were in safe hands as The Ashes Team are just so professional. Thank you so much for everything you did on our wedding day. We appreciate every single thing. From you helping to fasten button holes onto the wedding party, making the day run smoothly and to being there last thing at night.

    We couldn't have wished for more and wouldn't change a minute of it (well it would be nice to do it all again next week, lol).

    Lots of love from
    Nicola and Craig X

    We loved the highland cattle too!

    Hello! Thank you to the entire team at The Ashes for the most amazing time on our wedding day. We’ve loved every minute of it, the organisation has been great, and it was so nice that we didn’t have to worry about the little details on the day e.g. the placement of all the decorations etc. Everything looked spectacular and we couldn’t have faulted anything. All our guests and families commented on how fantastic and beautiful the venue was - we had a lot of fans of your highland cattle as well!

    We also wanted to personally thank Jayne who made sure the day ran smoothly and the way we’ve envisioned it. She’s done a great job and was so pleasant all the way through our planning.

    We can't thank you enough - there’s not a single thing we’d have done differently (apart from perhaps getting less alcohol, but we’re stocked for good few months!!!).

    Best wishes, Maggie & Martyn

    Lisa was amazing!

    Our wedding at The Ashes was well organised and (relatively!) stress-free from the beginning. From our look around, to booking, to our planning meeting and the day itself, the staff were very knowledgeable and helpful with every aspect of the day. The friendliness of staff really stood out and made us feel relaxed during the whole process. We received the guidance we needed and recommendations of local suppliers, many of which we used for our wedding. It was so lovely to enjoy the planning process despite us getting married fairly soon after getting engaged. The venue was beautiful and we really could not have asked for anything more.
    Staff were knowledgeable, friendly and well-presented. They went out of their way to ensure certain requests on the day which was very much appreciated.
    Lisa was amazing - very helpful, always around but not too much and always close by if needed. She very much put our minds at ease and helped our day to run smoothly. We had a lot of positive comments about the venue too.
    Thank you all for making it such a special day and one that we will remember for the rest of our lives!

    Lisa, Thank you so much for everything you did prior to and during our wedding day. You made everything so easy and really helped us to feel relaxed during a stressful but fun time. You even helped clean my dress, nothing was too much trouble. We loved meeting you, thank you for being amazing. We wish we could do it all over again!

    To Jayne and The Wonderful Ashes Team, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day so perfect! It was an absolute pleasure to work with such a kind and passionate team of people throughout the entire wedding process.

    From the second we set our eyes on The Ashes it had our heart and we knew it had to be our venue. To then find out that the team making the magic happen were equally perfect was a blessing.

    Wishing you all a 2020 filled with good health, happiness and love.

    Cloud Nine!

    To Jayne and all the fantastic Ashes staff,

    We are still on cloud nine following our amazing wedding on Thursday. It was just a perfect day and we loved every single minute of it. You were all fantastic and every one of our guests said it was the best wedding they have ever been to. From the event planners to all the people in the background we can’t thank you enough.

    A special mention to Jayne for just being wonderful and to the lovely lady who stepped in to make our amazing breakfast, you were just the loveliest.

    We cannot recommend the venue, accommodation and staff enough. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

    Love Mary and Adam x
