    Can we do it all over again?!

    What a day we all had, amazing day from start to finish!
    We finally got married at The Fleece almost 3 years after booking due to switching dates because of Covid, and it was well worth the wait.
    During the planning process Carrie-Anne couldn’t do enough for us, any questions we had were always answered really quickly, nothing was ever too much.
    On the days itself everything went so smoothly, the food was fab and the venue looked stunning, we were amazed when we first walked in, it was everything we had hoped it would be and more. All our guests commented on what a perfect venue The Fleece was, the staff were so attentive and professional.
    Thank you so much to Carrie-Anne and all the staff at The Fleece for such an amazing day. Xx

    Our wedding

    A M A Z I N G !
    From start to finish, I could write a book about how wonderful our wedding day was at the Fleece! I wish we could do it all over again Can't recommend enough!
    Despite covid causing a postponement, Carrie-Anne was so kind and understanding, communication was brilliant before during and after, she was there for us every step of the way, to the finest of details being planned to finally getting us down the aisle and to have the day we had waited so long for.
    The staff on the day was wonderful, they made sure we was okay at all times, had a drink to hand, kept us in the loop, running as smooth as possible and was just so lovely, complimentary, attentive and professional! Our personal card touch in the bedroom was a nice surprise and came home with us as keepsake (thank you)
    Our guests all had a wonderful time and could see why we both fell in love with the place! From the amazing views (the big talking point), decor, service, food, rooms, everything! We was lucky the weather stayed dry and we made full use of our private terrace in the evening for photos, mingling and dancing, it was honestly perfect we couldn't of asked for more! The whole day was full of smiles and laughter all round (and tears), honestly thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who was there.
    We are so thankful to everyone at the Fleece for making our wedding the best day of our lives, we are eternally grateful and so pleased we got to share our special day at our special place with wonderful people! We can't wait to come back again!
    (we had a number of drives up and visits for cocktails, restraunt food, terrace food and drinks, plus meetings on the lead up to our wedding and we was never disappointed) we will be booking an overnight stay for our anniversary that's for sure :)
    Kind Regards
    All our love
    Dannielle and Nathan Chadderton

    Perfect intimate 15 person ceremony amidst pandemic

    We recently had an intimate wedding ceremony on the 2nd January 2021. We had originally planned for a 60-80 person wedding, but we are beyond happy that we decided to go ahead with our day on the date we booked 20 months prior. It was more special than we could have imagined and we even got snow. The Fleece have supported us thoughout the highs and lows of the Covid situation, and we couldn’t have asked for better service. The journey to the day was such a roller coaster but Carrie-Anne managed to get us excited again after each blow.

    If anybody is worried about having a smaller ceremony with face coverings, just go for it if you want a special day all about you and your partner. It was the most magical and unique day, and the Fleece did everything they could to make it that way. After all, ‘all you need is love’. Thank you Carrie-Ann and Mark from The Fleece, we can't thank you enough x x x

    The Fleece Countryside Inn's reply:

    Awww Lucy, thank you SO much for your kind words!!! We are thrilled we managed to get you down the aisle and so happy you had a special intimate day. You truly are a lovely couple and congratulations on becoming Mr & Mrs Abberton! xxx

    Friendly, Accommodating and Professional

    Carrie-Anne and all the staff at The Fleece worked so hard to ensure our wedding day was perfect. They were all so efficient on the day so I could relax knowing everything had been taken care of. Everything ran smoothly and I didn’t have to worry about a thing!

    Every single one of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was. From the food to the stunning views, and the addition of the outside cocktail bar, it was such a wonderful day and I honestly could not thank them enough.

    Before the day we had to rearrange a couple of times due to Covid and Carrie-Anne was understanding and accommodating throughout.

    I am so pleased we chose The Fleece as our wedding venue, the whole day was perfect and I would highly recommend them.

    A perfect wedding

    We got married at the fleece on 20/6/21 and couldn’t have chosen a better venue. We had the most amazing day.
    Carrie-Anne has been so helpful throughout despite the numerous date changes due to covid. She was very supportive of our needs and fully understanding of the changes that had to happen despite what must have been a truly stressful time for herself and the fleece.
    Many of our guests commented on how lovely the staff were on the day and how amazing the food was.
    Despite covid restrictions, the fleece made our day so perfect and special. Even the rain stayed away so we could make use of the beautiful setting for our photos. Our only regret is that the day passed too quickly.
    Thank you all so much. I couldn’t recommend Carrie-Anne, the staff and the venue highly enough xx

    A Perfect Day

    From the first meeting with the team at The Fleece we knew we had booked the right venue. Their attention to detail was fantastic. They worked with all our fussy requirements to make our day as perfect as it could be. The venue is amazing, we are lucky enough to have the same views as we only live next door but the guest from afar were amazed by it. The food was amazing and the service equally as good. The day went perfectly, no hiccups and that was down to the Planners who had everything in hand. I couldn't recommend The Fleece enough.

    The Fleece Countryside Inn's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words and feedback! It really does mean the world to us here at The Fleece! We are so pleased we provided such a happy day for you and wish you a life time of happiness together! xx

    Incredible Day

    Harriet and the Fleece Team,
    We can't thank you enough for what was an absolutely incredible day.
    From our initial meeting, to the food, service and beautiful room. Every step was given such care and attention and made us feel very special.
    An extra Special thank you to Harriet for helping (meticulously) to organise such a fabulous day. It wouldn't have been possible without you and you deserve a medal for doing that day in day out.
    Hope to see you all again soon, With love
    Kevin and Katie xxx

    We had our wedding reception at The Fleece on 12/08/17. What a wonderful day! Right from the first visit, Emma-Jayne, Harriet and the team could not have done anything more for us. The room, the food, the views, the bedrooms (and even the weather!) were all fantastic. If you're undecided on a venue, get yourself along to one of their open days, you'll be amazed. Thank you all so, so very much xx

    Me and my partner had our wedding breakfast and evening reception at The Fleece on the 19/07/2017 and I couldn't of hoped for a better day.
    From the day of booking we had no problems, Emma-Jane and Harriet were/amazing. They were always on the end of the phone or a quick email away to answer any question or help in anyway they could.
    Our day was amazing (despite the rainy showers).
    Harriet and Rob excelled themselves to make sure everything was perfect and make sure myself, my partner and all our guest were happy and ok. The food was outstanding with all credit to the chefs, everyone commented on how the beef just melted in your mouth. I couldn't of been happier.
    The Fleece is an amazing venue with fantastic staff and I/we would recommend The fleece to anyone who was having the wedding or any function.
    Thank you Harriet, Rob and all the staff for helping us celebrate our special day xxx
