Its all we wanted our day to be like
By Chris & Kate Blackburn, on 12 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 10 Mar 2018
Thank you so much for our beautiful wedding day!! I can't even tell you how much we love the fell and the people in it! Our first time at the fell was almost 2 years ago and we have visited at least 5 times since! It is so special to us, that when we got engaged there was no other option but the fell for our venue. First of all, thank goodness you all have a sense of humour! You must have thought we were crackers, but you joined in with our chilled personalities and nothing was too much trouble! Hannah's relaxed and meticulous planning meant that I hadn't to worry about a thing on the morning or throughout the day. She had everywhere where they needed to be at the right time even us! If I could have her plan my everyday life I would! Helen, what an angel! There for me on the morning when our baby girl had me up from 3am, there to keep me calm, when I was about to walk down the aisle and again to see her and Hannah's lovely faces to greet us afterwards with champagne was like seeing friends! Paul for the smooth running and keeping the guests in line! Having a good laugh with us, it's all we wanted our day to be like, a good fun giggle and you all joined in for which I'm so grateful. My walking down the aisle song was Feels Like Home, it has a few meanings to us and the fell definitely feels like a home away from home. It's our special place and from the bottom of our hearts thank you all so very much for being a major part of our day!! Lots of Love, Chris & Kate Blackburn xxx
As soon as we walked in the door ...
By Rachel and Nick Johnstone, on 01 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Feb 2018
... of the DFH we knew it was the one – we liked that there were different spaces in the bar, conservatory, bistro, dining room and an open fire. The location and views are breath-taking, photos don’t do it justice. The staff were fantastic, we felt very spoiled and indulged. EVERYONE commented on how fantastic it was and worth the journey.
The food was stunning and portions generous, the team worked their socks off getting it to the tables quickly and piping hot. The onion and white cider soup was incredible and the vegetarian toad in the hole divine. The carnivores were very well serviced too! There were a lot of thoughtful, experienced touches for example how the dining room was laid out for our wedding breakfast and how separate canapés and drinks were reserved for the bride and groom to make sure we didn’t miss out.
The staff deserve special mention as they were ¬all so professional, warm, considerate, thoughtful and genuinely interested – they worked so hard for our day.
Hannah as the wedding coordinator was patient, efficient, reliable, good natured, fun and supportive.
Deputy Manager Helen worked her socks off on our wedding day, she worked so hard and with good grace answering all queries and quietly running around.
Paul tended bar with efficient humour – the best hot chocolate ever must not be missed!
Anna really looked after us and also worked hard with dinner and bar service.
The lovely chap who served breakfast (sorry we didn’t get your name) and Manager Jen did everything she could to help us make decisions.
Truly, the best day of our lives and a lot of that was because of the Devonshire Fell and its lovely team.

We had a fabulous day thank you, everyone at the Fell worked so hard to ensure the day went smoothly for us.
We would recommend the Fell to anyone looking for a wedding venue, as you had great attention to detail and you assisted us so well. We would come back and do it all again tomorrow!
Thanks again for everything
Hannah & Chris

To all the staff at The Devonshire Fell Hotel.
A belated note to thank you all for making Hannah and Christopher Brook's wedding reception on the 28th December '17 such a wonderful celebration for everyone.
Your hospitality was second to none and it was a thoroughly enjoyable occasion, a true winter wedding topped off with snow the following day!

Wonderful memorable wedding day!

We had a brilliant day it was amazing with all our friends and family and the photos of the whole day and venue are fab!
Thank you to you and Helen for helping the day run smoothly!!
From beginning to end the entire team were fantast
By Sarah & Gary Leyshon, on 22 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 18 Nov 2017
There are not enough words to describe how amazing The Devonshire Fell made our wedding feel. From beginning to end the entire team were fantastic. The whole team were friendly, attentive and worked with ease around the crowds. Special mentions have to go to; Hannah (events manager) for co-ordinating the entire day with a relaxed approach, a trait that was very welcomed, Helen (deputy manager) for being absolutely fantastic throughout our entire stay, especially in the morning when my bridal party were getting ready- she was always up for a giggle, and then Anita for making the most amazing hot toddies to help me rid my cold. I also have to say an enormous thank you to the chef!! Gary and I took the decision to offer our guests the choice to pre-select their menu and it was worth every penny! The quality of the food was absolutely amazing and I know everyone loved the food. To any future couple I cannot recommend The Devonshire Fell enough, partied up with Vanessa Wellock (florist) Kathryn Widdowson (photographer) and Rachel Neilson (make up) you really are in for a very special day where I can guarantee you’ll feel like a king and queen. Hannah, Helen and team a huge thank you! See you 18th Nov 2018 for our first anniversary.
Perfect setting, amazing food and helpful staff!
By Stuart & Selina Rich, on 01 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 27 Oct 2017
Just a short email to thank you all for making our day so perfect.
Everyone agreed what a perfect setting, amazing food and helpful staff we had on our day.
We really can not thank you enough!
We can't wait to come back.

A fabulous day!
By Jenny & Andy Wilkinson, on 19 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 30 Sep 2017
Thank you very much for assisting with our wedding. It was a fabulous day.
It was especially nice once I woke on Saturday morning, I didn't have to worry too much with decorations and setting up and concentrating on getting myself ready. It ran very smoothly and everyone really enjoyed themselves. The day did go really fast!
Jenny & Andy
Very flexible & accommodating
By Suzie & Tim Wilson, on 09 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Sep 2017
We really enjoyed our day and thought you all created a lovely relaxed environment. The bar & restaurant manager during dinner and afterwards kept us well informed and checked with me if I was happy with everything and that it was as expected like that our tables were set as I expected. Jennifer was also very accommodating ensuring we were ok and that we had a lovely evening and weren't rushed to bed!
Before the wedding you were very flexible and accommodating with what we wanted to do. Helping wherever you could, getting the rooms ready early, setting the tables out to meet our needs, making sure we had everything organised that we needed to, etc.
Everyone really had a good time and enjoyed the day and all the food very much.
You made sure we left with everything we came with and the leftovers (we were eating cheese for quite a while after!) and you were all very nice saying you had enjoyed looking after us. Tim feels like the day was a bit of a blur as we've had such a busy year and he's already talking about doing it all again. So expect a call at some point for maybe another wedding party just without the actual marriage this time.
Many thanks to you all.
Best wishes and we hope to come and stay with you again soon.
Suzie & Tim

By Sally and Simon Hinkins, on 03 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 20 Aug 2017
Dear Hannah and all other staff,
We wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all the time and effort you and all the staff at the Devonshire put into our wedding to make it such a remarkable day. We loved every moment and couldn't stop smiling.
Everyone was so helpful and charming and really made, not just us, but all of guests feel so very special.
The venue was perfect, the staff amazing, the food delicious (I can not tell you how many people have told us so), and the rooms just perfect.
WE had the best day and that is thanks to all the hard work you all put into it.
