Our favourite place!

Richard, my parents and myself have been here on many occassions (too numerous to mention), so it was the obvious choice for our 12th May wedding. We wanted an informal, relaxed and friendly wedding and that is exactly what we got. The service is great. Sharon the wedding co-ordinator is a star! And Val and Keith, the owners are lovely! The staff are very friendly and the food is just excellent. I heartily recommend you go there to try their buffet lunch!!
The grounds are nice and there is a mere a few hundred yards down the road where we had most of our photos taken. It is within walking distance and everyone walked there and back! It is a wonderful place for a wedding and the rooms are gorgeous! I can't recommend it enough.
