Nothing was too much trouble
By Mr & Mrs Evans, on 07 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 13 Aug 2017
We would like to thank The Coniston Hotel & their amazing staff for helping us create the most perfect day for our Wedding. Nothing was too much trouble and the attention to detail was fantastic. From the moment we arrived at the hotel we felt no stress and had no worries at all as everything was taken care of by the wedding events team.
A personal thank you to Sharon who coordinated our day. Sharon thank you so much your professionalism. Your fantastic personality really did shine through and our day went without a hitch. You made us both feel so relaxed knowing that everything was in your capable hands. Thank you so much!
The food was absolutely fantastic! The canapés, the starter, main and the dessert WOW! Chocolate brownie was a massive hit with everyone! Our guests all gave us great compliments about all of the food.
The Coniston Hotel is such a gorgeous setting and we are so pleased we chose here to start our life together and celebrate with our family and friends. The views were such a hit with all of our guests and with us! It is simply stunning inside and out.
Thank you Coniston for making our day so perfect and making our dreams a reality!
We will remember our special day for the rest of our lives together and we will definitely be visiting whenever we can!
We would recommend The Coniston Hotel without any doubt at all!
Planning a wedding from overseas
By Mr & Mrs Peters, on 07 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 06 Aug 2017
Planning a wedding from the other side of the world in Australia was not something I was looking forward to at all after the excitement of the engagement died down! Upon meeting with Sharon firstly over SKYPE she filled me with confidence from the get go that she and her team were the girls for the job!
I had a virtual tour of the venue as myself and my partner were not going to be back in the country for some time Sharon was able to give me all the information I needed to make the decision to book The Coniston for our wedding in Aug 2017.
Every step of the way throughout the planning Sharon and her team were unbelievably helpful and accommodating making everything really simple, I never had to wait longer than 12 hours for any responses to my questions or concerns.
On the weekend of my wedding Sharon and her team took over everything, leaving me and my bridal party to really enjoy the Spa facilities and genuinely relax, I almost needed reminding I was getting married the next day!
Sharon ensured the day ran to plan along with her team and made sure the guests were in the right place to get all the pictures I wanted, we were just left to enjoy the day and take it all in.
I would highly recommend the Coniston as a venue not only is it a beautiful location but the staff and the facilities are incredible.
I cannot thanks Sharon, Sophie and Kristina and the rest of her team enough for giving me and Declan a truly perfect day. ?? ??
Perfect setting for our special day
By Mr & Mrs Bradley, on 07 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 21 Jul 2017
It was the first venue we visited and we felt that it would be the perfect setting for our special day. However, we decided to visit a few more venues over the coming weeks but during these visits we always ended up comparing them to The Coniston... Needless to say we ended up booking for Friday 21st July 2017 with the help of Sharon, who was excellent throughout the booking process and was totally transparent about all the pricing.
From the moment we booked, all the wedding coordinators were readily available and extremely quick in responding to all our questions/queries via email and phone. After a few months we found out that our designated wedding coordinator would be Sophie - we cannot praise and thank Sophie enough. We felt that she constantly went above and beyond her role, accommodating all our requests and often making herself available at short notice to meet with us. She constantly put us at ease and calmed our nerves on the run-up to the big day. She was particularly attentive to the finer details - such as the 'finishing touches' and decorations on the day that made it a truly special and personalised experience. Nothing ever seemed like too much trouble and she was always calm and reassuring, even when we were unloading our cars full of table decorations, bunting (180 metres!), signs, table plans and large pieces of wood in varying sizes! She also assembled out wedding cake, and did a beautiful job.
A special thank you also has to go to the member of staff who looked after us during our evening celebrations. All our guests seemed to enjoy the day as much as we did, and were constantly praising the venue and how beautiful it was.
The Best Day Ever
By Mr & Mrs Lemon, on 07 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Jul 2017
Sean and I cant thank Sharon and the girls enough for making our Wedding Day the best day EVER!!!!! All the staff were friendly, the venue was set out beautifully, the surroundings were out of this world and the day went smoothly from start to finish. Everyone of our guests has commented saying it is the best wedding they have ever been to.
We had just under 2 years to plan the wedding which we thought was plenty but the days soon flew by! Sharon and the girls were always on hand answering any questions we had, replying to emails as soon as possible, always willing to meet up for a chat. We were made to feel as though we were the only ones getting married at The Coniston, the personal touch from the girls was fantastic and we cant thank them enough.
We would recommend anybody wanting to book to attend an open day as this gives you a chance to see the rooms dressed in all their glory, and WOW you will not be disappointed. It also gives you a chance to meet their recommended suppliers who are all brilliant in what they do.
We honestly can not have imagined a more perfect day and we want to thank everybody at The Coniston for making it happen. Especially Sharon you were calm, patient and reassuring, meaning we had no stress throughout the whole planning process and on the actual Wedding Day.
Wish we could do it all again as it goes too quick!!!! Thank you so much :) xxx
We had the most wonderful day
By Mr & Mrs Taylor, on 07 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 19 May 2017
Thank you so much to Sharon and all the team at The Coniston Hotel & Country Estate for all your help and services throughout our wedding. We had the most wonderful day which ran smoothly all because of the amazing staff who helped make it so special, all the stress was took away from us and we were able to relax and enjoy the day. The way you looked after not only us but our dog Buster who was a big part of our day was second to none. We have received some brilliant feedback about the wedding and the venue with some guests already rebooking for a weekend. We are looking forward to coming back for the weekend soon!
Instantly fell in love with the venue
By Mr & Mrs Yates, on 07 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 12 May 2017
We visited the Coniston Hotel as the first venue to look at following our engagement and instantly fell in love with the venue, atmosphere and staff! We looked no further and every step of the way the wedding team were always on hand to answer questions and make us feel welcome. Nothing was ever too much to ask and from using a big yellow tractor as our wedding transport to walking our dogs down the aisle as ring bearers there was nothing that the team wouldn't make possible for us! The team worked above and beyond to create the wedding we truly only imagined we would have and honestly made our day a perfect one. The other hotel staff are always welcoming and again cannot seem to do enough for you and it is truly highly recommended. We cannot thank you enough for making our day so special. We wouldn't change a thing about it and it will be a day we will truly never forget. Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you all soon.
We had the best time!

Dear Sophie and Sharon,
I just wanted to send a little note to thank you both for everything that you did to make our wedding day so special. We had the best time. All of the wedding guests said that it was the most amazing venue and that the staff were all great. Sophie the room looked amazing – I have no idea how you understood my rushed mumbling! It was better than I could have imagined and was the most perfect chilled out party!
