Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Butler, on 04 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Feb 2019

We just wanted to say thank you so much for all your efforts to make our wedding day perfect. Shirna you were amazing from start to finish and I cannot thank you enough for making everything so easy. The day was amazing and everything went so smoothly and we know that it was largely down to all your efforts. We will definitely be returning soon with our dog Maisy, until then thank you again!

The best day of our lives!

By The new Mr & Mrs Miller, on 22 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Dec 2018

Thank you for hosting the best day of our lives. We could not have imagined a more perfect venue – beautiful setting, friendly and helpful staff, delicious food and a great night’s sleep resting our dancing feet! The horn of Plenty now has a very special place in our hearts. We look forward to celebrating many anniversaries to come here and relive this happy day. Thank you so much

It was a day to remember
Venue Service

By Catherine and Luke, on 20 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Dec 2018

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!

By Lisa & John, on 10 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Oct 2018

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
Venue Service

By Dave and Craig, on 10 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 13 Oct 2018

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
Venue Service

By Mel Channing, on 10 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 22 Sep 2018

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 !!

Well what a place...
Venue Service

By Jordan and Gary, on 10 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Sep 2018

Thank you to every single member of staff who made our wedding so special. You guys have been phenomenal through our wedding planning to the actual date. Nothing was too much trouble and we had the best wedding we could ever have wished for. A special thank you to Shirna, who was my rock on the day! You helped calm my nerves and made sure everything went smoothly and that I had nothing to worry about.

The most perfect day
Venue Service

By Dan and Claire, on 17 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 13 Aug 2018

I just wanted to drop you a quick line to once again thank everyone involved in the planning and execution of our big day on Monday. We had the most perfect day and wouldn’t change a single detail and the venue and staff played a massive part in that. We have had so much positive feedback from our guests about the food, setting and the rooms for those that stayed We will definitely be back in the future and look forward to catching up with you when we do visit again We could not recommend you highly enough!!! Thanks again

Absolutely perfect day
Venue Service

By Amy and Sam, on 17 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Jul 2018

Sam and I had our wedding at the horn of plenty a few weeks ago (28th July 2018) and we had an absolutely perfect time. Staff were all amazing and were all really flexible and accommodating when we had bad weather for our planned outdoor ceremony. Julie and Shirna rearranged the location and the timings of the day to ensure that the weather didn't affect the enjoyment of us or any our guests. We had an absolutely fantastic wedding weekend, the rooms and food were all incredible - we cannot fault them and will definitely be visiting again!

Incredibly happy day
Venue Service

By Charlotte and Martin, on 17 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Jul 2018

Thank you, we enjoyed our wedding so much and we are incredibly happy with how the day went. From start to finish, it was brilliant. All guests enjoyed their food and their rooms, we had lots of comments on the food and how lovely it was! All staff work so well together to make the day goes smoothly and we appreciate that a lot. Our pictures look beautiful too with the amazing backdrop from being outside. We’re so glad we got to that. We will definitely be returning, especially for our anniversary.

Incredibly thankful
Venue Service

By Timothy and Stephanie, on 17 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Jul 2018

It was such a delightful day and we're incredibly thankful that you were there to help us stay organised, all of the waiting staff keeping everyone fed and watered, and the kitchen team doing the best food I've experienced at any wedding - a sentiment also expressed by many of our guests. We had everything we needed and more, and all the staff were super helpful. Shirna's improvisation to move the speeches outside certainly saved a few people, and all of the layout and decoration being handled by the staff was greatly appreciated as it freed us up to spend our day with our guests, and also got the layout of everything just right.

our favourite place
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Alder, on 17 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Jun 2018

We had our wedding on 4th June this year and the team did not let us down. Leading up to the big day, Julie and the weddings team guided us through the build up and were always on hand to answer any questions and give advice without hesitation. On the day, Shirna and the front of house team delivered a perfect day for us from start to finish. Another selling point for us booking the Horn of Plenty for our big day, was the fact that we were able to sit down with Chef Ashley and create our own personalised menu. From the reception canapes right the way through to our evening set up, the food was impeccable! All of our guests commented on how amazing it all was. We cannot recommend the Horn of Plenty enough. It’s become our favourite place and we can’t wait for our next champagne afternoon tea overlooking the gorgeous views! ?? Thanks to all of the team for being fabulous always x”
