From the moment we went for a wedding fayre we wanted the Hawkhills as our venue. We were able to meet with the wedding coordinator Kasha and discuss everything we did and didn't want from the packages already created and also add in anything that wasn't on offer. Communication was amazing and I had the quote quickly, once booked communication was maintained brilliantly and I was always kept in the loop of literally anything I needed to know. I was given expert guidance on things I wasn't sure would be best such as where to position the tables, cake and table plan.
The morning of the wedding everyone was so unbelievably helpful especially Kasha and the toastmaster Kevin (anyone doubting whether to have him I would say do, he is more than worth his weight in gold!). Between them they got everyone and everything organised and literally I wouldn't have had a clue what to do without them. The day was seamless thanks to all of the staff and my guests couldn't have been more complimentary of all of the staff, their professional but personal and helpful attitude to literally anything asked of them.
All in all I couldn't recommend this venue enough, all staff are amazing and helpful, nothing is too much to ask and everything is done quickly, efficiently and to the highest standards. I wish I could do my day all over again! Special thanks to Kasha and Kevin for everything throughout the entire day, you were amazing, I couldn't have done it without you!!!

Amazing from start to finish

From the moment we entered we wanted the Hawkhills as our venue. We met with Kasha, discussed everything we did and didn't want, pulled all the packages apart and added together bits that weren't in there to create our perfect day, within our budget and with all of our 100 day guests needs sorted. Kasha had the quote back to us quickly and we booked it seamlessly.
Communication was amazing throughout and even my constant emails on the run up to the day asking questions, checking details and everything else were met with an amazing response and everything sorted and answered quickly ready for my next email (I was annoying myself but Kasha didn't seem to mind in the slightest! Patience of a Saint!)
Wedding eve I arrived at the venue, later than planned and kasha came back to meet me from home as her shift finished hours before, still amazingly helpful and professional helping with anything and everything.
On the day Kasha and Kevin along with the rest of the amazing team sorted everything!
All in all I couldn't recommend this venue enough, all staff are amazing and helpful, nothing is too much to ask and everything is done quickly, efficiently and to the highest standards. I wish I could do my day all over again! Special thanks to Kasha and Kevin for everything throughout the entire day, you were amazing, I couldn't have done it without you and if you were paid based on your ability to make everything seamless and stress free noone could afford you!!!

Fabulous wedding venue!

This wedding venue has everything you could ask for from picturesque gardens and amazing woodlands, to inside the house itself with a stunning wooden staircase and bridal suite. It made for some amazing wedding pictures!! We also wanted on site accommodation so all our guests could stay. All the staff were amazing and went above and beyond to help create our perfect wedding day. 5 stars venue, highly recommend!

Jones Wedding

From start to finish, nothing was too much for The Hawkhills. Every step of the way, Sophie was there with us. From that first, initial meeting to the final prep the night before. The day went perfectly- I'm still getting comments a month on of how perfect the day was! I couldn't say thank you enough to the incredible staff at the Hawkhills, the toastmaster and to Sophie!

Secret Garden

We had our wedding at The Hawkhills in June 2017 and the whole experience was amazing. We fell in love with the the grounds and especially the orchard on our first visit, we were able to create our perfect wedding with a marquee in the secret garden which all our friends and family loved! The fact there was accommodation for all our guests at a great price was also a fantastic bonus. Sophie the wedding planner is a total star and understood from day one how we wanted our special day. Nothing was too much trouble and she was with us throughout the planning and with us on the day to ensure everything ran smoothly - which it did! The venue really is a hidden gem which makes it so so special. We couldn't praise the team or the venue enough for making our wedding day so perfect.

A Stunning Wedding Venue

We got married at The Hawkhills on 4th March 2017 and couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding venue! The wedding package at gives you everything you need and more - exclusive use of the venue for the whole weekend, freedom to be as creative and unique as you like in order to create the perfect wedding for you as a couple, and not to mention to continual support from all the staff before, during and after the event. Kevin the Toastmaster creates a extra special atmoshphere and keeps the day running smoothly, whilst also being entertaining in his role. Craig the chef cooks delicious food that was loved by all, and could easily cater to our requirements. Carla and the waiting staff were very accomodating and friendly, and last but not least Sophie the wedding coordinator went out of her way to make sure everything down to the last detail was exactly how we wanted it - we couldn't have done it with out her!

We would thoroughly recommend The Hawkhills as a wedding venue - you won't be disappointed!
