October Wedding
Venue Service

By Isobel & John, on 29 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 19 Oct 2019

From the moment we met with Stephanie and was shown around The Fisherman's Retreat we were hooked. No other place had come close to having what we wanted for our October wedding. Stephanie and her team could not do enough for us in the run up to our wedding and on our day. All our guests commented on what an amazing venue it was, how amazing the food was and how lovely the staff were from the moment our first guest arrived to the last guest leaving. We could not recommend Fisherman's Retreat enough. It offers something different and special without being too expensive. The whole team are friendly and welcoming. Our wedding was incredible and we cannot thank Stephanie and her team for all they did. Amazing!!!!

Wedding Day...
Venue Service

By Tom & Amy Whitehead, on 08 May 2014 day ever!! Such an amazing day... We found everyone at the Fisherman's Retreat really helpful in the run up to our wedding and as a result we had no stress at all. The day ran so smoothly and we were able to enjoy every single minute of it. The venue looked absolutely stunning and all food that we had was delicious, everyone said the same. The guests have commented about how lovely it all was and many have said they'll be returning for family meals :-)

Venue Service

By Mrs Hart, on 07 May 2014

I got married at the Fisherman's Retreat in January and it was the best day EVER! The venue is absolutely beautiful and we were lucky enough to get a beautiful bright day. The grounds made for wonderful photos-they came out a treat. The Valley Suite in which we got married was truly breathtaking. They had decorated it so pretty i was shocked that it was my wedding. The food was also spot on, all my guests were so complimentary about it, it really was delicious. The staff were wonderful and Steph the wedding planner really went the extra mile for us. As we got married in January it went quite quite quick and with the lighting the room just looked amazing in all our photos. I would recommend this place to everyone without hesitation, im glad i found it before all my friends. Thanks to all the staff for such a special day.
