Where do we even begin to express our heartfelt gratitude? From the very moment James and I set foot in The Ferry House, we were met with warm smiles and a sense of belonging that instantly captured our hearts. It was clear to us that this was the venue where our dreams would come to life.
Throughout the entire planning process, your team made everything seamless. At every step of the journey, we had someone by our side to help, guide, and support us. Your kindness, care, and exceptional dedication were evident in every interaction we had. You all went above and beyond, ensuring that we felt supported and at ease on our big day.
Words cannot adequately convey the depth of our gratitude for providing us with the most incredible wedding day. Our expectations were not only met but exceeded in every possible way. The flawless execution, the breathtaking grounds, and the exceptional food left us in awe.
More than just a venue, The Ferry House became a warm and welcoming home for our families and friends. Your staff’s outstanding hospitality and the homely atmosphere captured the hearts of everyone present.
The beauty of the grounds was matched only by the incredible dedication of your staff. Each and every one of them is outstanding, going above and beyond to ensure that every detail was perfect. We truly couldn’t have asked for more.
Choosing The Ferry House as our wedding venue was one of the best decisions we made. From day one, you made us feel special, and that feeling continued every minute of our wedding day. We are simply blown away by everything you did for us, and our hearts are filled with love and appreciation.
You made us the happiest couple in the world, and our wedding day was beyond special and unforgettable. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for hosting the wedding of the year and for creating memories that will last a lifetime.
With all our love and gratitude,
Beautiful Venue, Amazing Day
Venue and location stunned all our guests
Food and drinks were the best at any event we’ve attended. Delicious plentiful and presentation superbly executed.
Hotel and cottages can not be faulted.
Our wedding planner Jess was flexible approachable and professional.
We felt we were special and important to them - not just another couple getting married.
All the staff are friendly and helpful.
The planning process and the technology works and prompt replies are so important. Totally stress free and fun.
If you want to wake up the day after your wedding wishing for “Groundhog Day” book it at this venue.
We love working with these guys...
Couldn't have asked for a better weddig venue!
If you like an organised event then the Ferry House is for you. Everything had been thought of, from the decor drop being arranged a week before the wedding, to the powder room to get ready in and making sure we had our wedding corrdinators phone number on the day. The whole day ran smoothly and all the staff were attentive whilst giving us and all our guests privacy.
The staff were more than happy to set up and pack away our decor. The venue even had some free decor you could use on the day, something that is so rare in the wedding industry! Everything extra normally comes with a price tag.
We had a small intimate wedding and it was the ideal venue for it. Most of our guests stayed over and we all had breakfast the next morning together, which was a lovely way to end the wedding.
I am so impressed with the whole set up for weddings at the venue and was surprised it fit well within our budget.
We are both still buzzing from the wedding and a large part of that is down to the Ferry House team. We were so well looked after, including my 9 month old nephew, and we will definitely be back for our anniversaries!
My wonderful wedding
We wanted a winter barn wedding, with sparklers and twinkly lights and this is exactly what we got.
I cannot praise this venue and the staff highly enough. Thank you so much for making our wedding so special for us and all our guests.

Best Day of our lives
Excellent Venue - Great Day!
Wedding August 2021
All staff were so helpful right from booking to the day itself.
We can’t thank the Ferry House enough.
Everything and more
Every single guest felt that they well looked after, they felt welcome from the moment they arrived.
The pamper room is an absolute charm to get ready in.
We were an intimate wedding, we didn’t want evening food or a big dance party after (we evening full of laughter and drinks), they worked with us to make it as special as it was. I was called a relaxed bride, that was only possible because I knew the staff had everything in hand.
Would definitely recommend the venue.
