We recently had our wedding reception at the manor house and it was the most amazing day, myself my husband and all our family and friends commented on the service we received from Sarah and the team. For our engagement present my bridesmaid bought us an overnight stay at the manor house and as soon as we went we knew it was where we wanted to book our wedding! So that’s exactly what we did. From that first step Sarah could not have been more helpful there was nothing to much trouble (even all my random requests :-)) Wouldn’t have changed a thing the whole day! Thank you so much. We want to do it all over again ??Sent on 20/12/2019

We have just had our wedding at the Manor House what an amazing experience from the moment we first met Sarah the hotels wedding co ordinator we knew our big day was in safe hands but the extra time and effort the team put into our big day was just astounding.Sent on 20/12/2019
The venue is beautiful and very clean a great place to hold any event not just a wedding. All the staff are friendly happy and helpful everyone made our stay an unbelievable experience whether they were directly involved in our wedding or not.
The wedding team led by Sarah worked so hard from the night before setting up the room for the wedding ceremony to ensuring everything was perfect and ran seamlessly on the day itself, the transformation of the wedding hall from the ceremony to the meal to the night time party could of easily of been 3 different rooms as each change looked clean bright and just like the previous part hadn't taken place there.
I really can't say enough on how I would recommend anyone.to.have a wedding at this venue led by Sarah and her team, I know all outside people we had supply various things all commented on how professional the wedding set up was. You could of easily doubled what we paid at another venue and not got half the service we got.
Many thanks to everyone at the manor house you made our big day perfect and unforgettable. If you are looking for a wedding venue ring them now you won't be disappointed.

We recently got married at The Manor House Hotel and I have to say that we were blown away with the whole experience. It was not only myself and my husband who commented on the service received on the day, it was also many of our wedding party guests who commented at various times to say how fantastic it all was and asked us how we found such a beautiful place to get married.Sent on 20/12/2019
Sarah and her team were absolutely brilliant, we started planning our wedding back in September 2017 and Sarah was always at the end of an email for me should we have had any question to ask, I can’t fault anything at all to do with the wedding planning side of things. We had regular meetings and Sarah kept us guided and focused and we never at any point worried as we felt in complete safe hands throughout the whole process.
I’d read many reviews on the forum in the lead up to the wedding and I can only speak from our own findings but I felt some of the reviews were maybe a bit harsh and I did at some points worry if we were doing the right thing because of these reviews. All I can say is the Manor House Hotel is a very old hotel so there will always be something to pick out but that we are absolutely over the moon that we had our wedding at The Manor House Hotel and for anyone thinking of doing the same I’d definitely recommend it - there is not one thing from the whole experience that I could fault and the hotel and the grounds have so much character, it’s just beautiful.
