    A beautiful setting, with wonderful service

    We had a church wedding in May 2021, followed by our reception at the Horn of Plenty (exclusive use of the venue for our party of 30 guests).

    From the initial look around to the day itself, full marks for communication! Shirna and the team were very accommodating with all aspects of our big day, especially what with the ever changing coronavirus rules at that time.
    The food was amazing - the chef designed a special menu based around our favourite foods. We had several special requirements and all of these were catered for without any fuss.
    The service on the day was fantastic - all of the staff were very polite and seemed as though they genuinely enjoyed their jobs, which is always a good sign!
    We used the summer room area for the sit down meal which was brilliant - the view was stunning and it was a warm day so we were glad that the windows/doors could be opened.
    We had the speeches outside under the trees but the fountain, which worked really well.
    The grounds are so stunning, so we had some amazing photos. It was a great space for the children to explore too.
    The guests raved about the lovely rooms and several have said they will be booking in for special occasions in the future.
    Thank you again to all of the team, who really helped take some of the stress away. We feel so lucky to have picked a venue with such amazing amenities, food and staff.

    John and I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for our most wonderful wedding day. It literally was perfect in every way and everything was just perfect. The attention to detail was incredible and every guest has commented on how amazing the food was and how incredible the venue is. All the Scottish lot are desperate to come back and visit again as they were just blown away with it.

    John and I honestly had the most perfect day and thanks for all your hard work to make sure everything went to well. Your whole team are a credit to you and made us feel so welcome and nothing was an issue.

    Amazing day

    I just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did for our wedding last Monday. I really appreciate all the work that you put in, it definitely helped me stress a bit less about organising things.
    I honestly can’t thank you enough for making the day run smoothly and making it amazing. I also wanted to say a big thank you to the rest of the wedding team and staff that were there on the day, they were all amazing and the food was delicious as always.
    Luke and I really appreciate everything you did and will definitely be back at some point.

    Most wonderful experience

    The breathtaking views over the valley and gorgeous venue and beautiful gardens won us over immediately. From the moment we booked, a year before, to the special day the wedding team were in close contact and always quick to reply to emails or phone calls. The day itself was amazing. I can’t believe how smoothly it all went and how relaxed I felt. I think this was because everything was very organised leading up to the day. All the recommended services (florist/cake/cheese shop) were incredible and the food was delicious on the day.
    Thank you to Shirna and the wedding team for making the day so special for us. I wish we could do it all again!

    Dream come true

    The whole experience was everything we’d dreamed of. We don’t have a bad word to say. We had a perfect day! All of our guests loved it. Beautiful location, really special food and the wedding team were always happy to help. They even catered for a few requests we had even though it wasn’t what they’d usually do. Shirna deserves a special mention for all her help. Thank you all at The Horn Of Plenty

    fabulous venue

    We had the most wonderful wedding, just the perfect day, and this was in very large part down to the fabulous venue we had and your amazing team taking such good care of us - everything was just magical and we can't thank you all enough.

    The whole team was just brilliant, our heartfelt thanks to everyone, but especially big thanks to Shirna for being an absolute superstar all day long and managing my never ending random requests so efficiently. Everything ran so smoothly and all of our guests adored the hotel, especially those lucky enough to stay overnight, we had many compliments.

    It was a day to remember

    We chose the Horn of Plenty as our wedding venue for a couple of reasons 1) The amazing setting, and more importantly, 2) Julie, the owner and Wedding planner. She made us feel so welcome and special from the moment we stepped into the hotel whilst looking for a venue that we knew we wanted to get married there. From that very first meeting, Julie and her team couldn’t do enough to ensure our day was perfect in every way. We planned the wedding from Yorkshire and the wedding team were on always hand to answer any questions we had. The actual day was amazing. The food was out of this world. The chef had created a bespoke menu for us earlier in the year where we met with him and discussed our favourite food. He then designed a menu around this and made our favourite foods even better! All of our guests commented on how good the food was and how well ran the day went. I can’t recommend The Horn of Plenty enough. We will most certainly be going back in years to come.

    Thank You!

    We’ve had a fantastic day, thank you so much for making it extra special for us. Everybody was just so impressed with the lovely location and delicious food.
    There is absolutely nothing you could have done better, you went above and beyond, and we couldn’t have asked for a better team and location :)

    Our Wedding Day

    We decided on the Horn of Plenty for our wedding day. Julie and her team are amazing and the personal touch is really what set this venue apart from others we looked at. You’re made to feel that the day is truly unique to you and nothing is too much trouble. The views are amazing and the food is out of this world, the head chef Ashley really works with you to design a menu that reflects you. From the canapes, to the breakfast and petite fours all the way to the evening food, there was nothing that was not a pleasure to eat. The rooms are fantastic with many offering views across the valley and beyond. I have nothing bad I could say about the place. Definitely consider it as a possible wedding venue, but also just a fantastic dinning experience or night away.

    Father of a very happy Bride

    I am writing to say that my daughter and her now husband were married at your beautiful hotel this weekend.
    I have to say that we as a family cannot thank you enough for everything that you have done for us.
    As the father of the bride I could not have wished for a better place for her to be married, the scenery, the hotel and most of all the staff made it a day that will live on in our hearts for many years to come.
    Thank you doesn’t seem to say a lot , but we mean it from the bottom of our hearts !!
