Angela & all the team at gamekeepers inn made my dream wedding come true. Anything I needed Angela was only a email away, even at unsociable hours she made me feel so supported in the planning process. Our wedding day was perfect from start to finish. Angela new how I wanted my day to run down to the last detail and executed it perfectly. The MC, Chris who is provided by Gamekeepers was just a breath of fresh air he was professional well mannered and funny, all our guests commented on how great he was. The setting of the barn and surrounding areas are just stunning and complemented our photos perfectly. Thankyou to all the staff who went above and beyond. To even fixing my train before I walked down the aisle so I looked perfect. Gamekeepers has a special place in our heart and we can’t wait to come back soon.

A Hidden Gem

Claire, Stuart and the team,

Rich and I would just like to say a huge thank you for making our very special day, extra special!
It really couldn't have gone any better for us.
I think it's fair to say that all our guests had equally as an enjoyable time. They all thought the venue was stunning and a hidden gem. The most important thing for us, was that it provided the relaxed atmosphere that we wanted.
It truly was our day. You were so accommodating to us from the beginning.
We'll definitely be back for a stay in the future to make use of the facilities and area.
We hope you continue to have many more successful weddings.

Take care, best wishes xxx

Magical Day

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Stuart and his team at The Gamekeeper's where we had our wedding reception last Saturday. They dealt with all my annoying questions quickly and without fuss, they were really organised and I felt totally reassured that everything would be as I wanted (I am particular). Everything was perfect we had a sit down meal for 60 (including various special dietary requirements) that was absolutely delicious then we had bacon/sausage sandwiches in the evening. Every member of the team that I spoke to was friendly and obliging. Everyone LOVED the food had so many comments on it and also how lovely the function room and accommodation was. We adored the honeymoon suite, was lovely to sit on the balcony the following morning and reflect on our magical day. We can assure you we will back again and again this place has so many happy memories now. Thank you doesn't seem a good enough word!
