A thoroughly brilliant day from start to finish, with an amazing venue and facilities.
Ann, and all of the staff made the day a very enjoyable one and nothing was too much trouble for them.
I would definitely recommend the Dower House Hotel for any couple wishing to hold their wedding there.
Many thanks for all your hard work.
Wow Our Wedding Day Made more than Special by Anne

From walking in the door for our first appointment with Anne to view the venue we felt at home, Anne was so friendly and happy she obviously loves her job and oozes passion to get it right for everyone as individual couples. First meeting coffee with Anne and homemade shortbread biscuits (this lady knows how to live) lots of laughs and fun but no hard selling or feeling under pressure. Next a complimentary meal and wine tasting, not a nibble of this and that we were invited to the restaurant with the choice of our own starter main and sweet to try, Adi the barman provided a variety of wines for tasting. Anne certainly gained our confidence and her team of staff always made us feel at home and welcome nothing was too much trouble and everyone always looked happy. The day of our wedding we had nothing to worry about every detail was as we had asked for and we were consulted with all the happenings so no apprehensive moments all the team made sure that we had nothing to do but enjoy the day. The venue is situated in the most peaceful scenic grounds perfect for the photographer, the rooms are spacious, clean and the bathrooms are out of this world, all our guests were blown away with their rooms.The food from breakfast to the night was delicious the chef is a credit to the hotel. Everyone was served at the same time and treated like royalty, the bar staff worked so hard to make sure no one had to wait and they even made time to get to know people individually. The grounds are safe for children and they were welcomed and made to feel special too.

We held our wedding at the Dower House on 14th October. It is the most magical place and the staff are all fantastic. They made our special day truly amazing. Having exclusive use and over eighty guests there was not a single problem or issue. We have had so many positive comments regarding the setting, accommodation, event and staff that it would be impossible to list them all. The best compliment was a relative who said that they felt the staff were a part of the family and the celebration. High praise indeed considering the whole thing was organised in just two months, prior to which my husband and I did not even know the place existed. The fireworks display was brilliant and for anyone considering this well worth every penny. The disco was perfect, providing a good mix for ages 8 to 80. The food was perfect, beautiful and delicious. The Dower House provides the perfect mix of elegance and comfort. Grand enough to feel special, yet comfortable enough to feel like home. I am certain that this is because of Anne and her wonderful team, where nothing is too much trouble and everyone seems happy to be a part of the team. We would like to thank them all for making our stay such a wonderful experience and for helping to get our marriage off to a hassle free, happy start. Love to each and every one of you and you will be seeing us again very soon.
Absolutley out of this world!!

On first impressions the outside appearance was exactly what we were looking for. The elegant, beautiful buildings and the woodland that surrounded it was perfect for our rustic themed wedding.
When we stepped inside it only got better. Greeted every time we visited with a welcoming smile and friendly hello, the staff were so kind and helpful. The interiors in each and every room were unique and stunning, with homely touches such as the homemade shortbread in each room. The atmosphere is warm and friendly, and is great for couples to families. All in all The Dower House is such a beautiful, quaint hotel that deserves a lot of recognition. You can tell the staff are proud to work in such a lovely environment.
Unfortunately we had quite a few guests who did not turn up to the wedding therefore causing interference to seating and meal orders. The staff were extremely understanding and quickly and efficiently were able to make amendments to our seating plan and they even knocked off the price of the unattended guests. They all went above and beyond to make our day as special as it could be.
We could not have asked for a better venue, we knew that it would be a perfect day but The Dower House went all out to make sure it exceeded all expectations.

Mr and Mrs Pruteanu Wedding
By Victoria and Alex Pruteanu, on 27 Jun 2016
My husband and I chose The Dower House for a wedding venue because of its stunning charm and beautiful setting but on top of that the helpful and friendly staff. From booking right through to the day itself nothing was too much trouble, no questions were silly. We had the most amazing and memorable day and it couldn't have been more perfect and this is all thanks to Anne the Hotel Manager and her wonderful team of staff. Our guests all commented on how beautiful the wedding was, the venue and the setting. Being able to get married outside was the icing on the cake. It was magical and none of our guests had ever been to a wedding where the ceremony took place outside. It's unique, charming and holds a very special place in our hearts.
Beautiful setting and friendly staff

Amazing venue for a 'tailor made' wedding
By Lorraine and Adrian, on 09 Feb 2016
We held our wedding here in October 2015. From the start we were at the centre of the plans, and the wedding was tailored to suit us, from the menu to the drinks, the room we chose, and the table layout. This appealed to us more than package deals.
Sharon, the coordinator, was very helpful, always responding promptly to queries. She was there from the start of the wedding to the end, in the background, ensuring all went smoothly.
We married in a small, intimate room leading onto the stunning gardens, and the reception was held an a larger, stunning room with fairy lights in the ceiling, again overlooking the gardens.
The meal was faultless; we chose a roast and there was lots of it! There were countless comments from family members about how fantastic the food was. The bridal suite is amazing, the perfect place to retire to at the end of the day.
We feel lucky that our family and friends still remind us what an amazing day they had with us at the Dower House. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, beautiful wedding venue, it really is something special.
