Mother and Father of the Bride
Venue Service

By Mark and Wendy Humphrey, on 13 May 2018Date of Wedding - 12 May 2018

This venue was superb for an intimate friends and family wedding. The food was excellent beautifully cooked and served. The marquee was perfect for the wedding breakfast and evening entertainment. We can't thank the staff enough for their attention to detail and making the day so wonderful.

Wonderful Wedding
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Over, on 30 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Sep 2017

My daughter and her fiancé got married here on Saturday. My daughter and I stayed Friday night and had dinner. The food was wonderful and the staff are great. Everyone was so accommodating and they couldn't help us enough. Kim and Mark the owners are lovely and will ask what you want for your wedding and won't dictate what you have to have like some venues. Nathan the master of ceremonies is lovely and so helpful. I'm not great with names but all the staff were brilliant. My daughter really wanted an outside ceremony under the lovely gazebo and thankfully the weather turned out to be perfect and the decision was made at about 1.30 for the 2.30 ceremony. The weather had been really dodgy all morning but we kept fully informed all day. The rooms are clean and lovely and a good size. The canapés were gorgeous and the happy couple opted for a BBQ and I have to say you couldn't fault the food it was all amazing. The food for the evening was fish & chip cones, bacon baps and cheese & onion pasties again amazing. The day was fantastic and so were the staff and the venue is fantastic. Thanks guys you should all be very proud of yourselves we all had an amazing time. The marquee is lovely and the toilets were nothing like Glastonbury according to one guest. I would highly recommend The Mill House.

Our Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Clayton xxx, on 30 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 27 Aug 2017

We cannot thank everyone at The Mill House enough for giving us our perfect wedding day. From the moment we came to view the hotel we knew it was for us - a beautiful hotel, amazing garden, a relaxed and homely atmosphere, but above all Mark and Kim made us feel comfortable and at ease. We have not had to worry at all in the lead up to our big day as we knew everything was in very safe hands from start to finish. The day itself was AMAZING!! It was our dream to get married outside and it surpassed our expectations. Our wedding breakfast was fantastic, the food was absolutely faultless. We have had so many comments from guests about the venue, saying how beautiful and relaxed it was - for Carl and I to look around and see everyone having such a lovely time truly made our day. A massive thank you to all the staff who have looked after us so well, especially Fiona! Fiona - you have been absolutely amazing throughout and we were very pleased that you were part of the day itself. Thank you again, we now feel part of The Mill House family and will definitely be back to visit

Incredible Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Bryan & Katie, on 30 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 19 Aug 2017

We cannot thank all the staff at the Mill House enough for making our wedding day truly extraordinary! Everyone had an amazing time and all commented on how brilliant the staff were. The food was excellent and delicious and served quickly and efficiently. Although there was a power cut, that did not worry us at all because the staff were in full control. Nathan was brilliant and Fiona was so attentive - she asked me all night whether I wanted a drink. She made us feel incredibly special. Also, every single staff member congratulated us both which goes an awful long way. The bedrooms were all clean, comfortable and decorated beautifully too. And breakfast in the morning definitely made everyone feel slightly less fragile!!!! We could not recommend them enough and can't believe how lucky we were to have such a perfect day!

Our Best Day Ever
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Thomas, on 30 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Aug 2017

We had our wedding here last week and we cannot recommend it highly enough! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and we were treated like royalty from the moment we arrived to the minute we left the morning after! Everything was perfect (including the weather which was very lucky) and from our first look around the venue to the day of the staff were attentive, helpful and so very kind that we felt at ease at all times. The food was also incredible!! We are thrilled with our choice of venue, thank you to all at the Mill House for creating our best day ever!

Beautiful wedding
Venue Service

By Ann, on 19 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 17 Aug 2017

My daughter was married here a few days ago and the staff couldn't have done more to make the day perfect. They were so welcoming to us all, nothing was too much trouble and their personal attention added an extra dimension to the stunning venue. They managed to make their efficiency look effortless but there was a fantastic team of friendly people working hard to provide a very happy experience for the bride and groom and their guests. Thank you all.

Made my dreams come true
Venue Service

By Claire & Tim Hancock, on 30 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 29 May 2017

We got married here on the 29th April, from the very moment we visited the venue to when we said goodbye as husband and wife they were incredible. Nothing was too much trouble, and the attention to detail was incredible. Not only am I a complete control freak and perfectionist I also used to be an enrichment and events coordinator, so they had their work cut out. But I have never felt so relaxed and calm in my life, I had no need to even worry about a thing. The day went perfectly and I just wish I could do it again and again. The mill house made my dreams come true and I would not hesitate if you are looking for a wedding venue, just book it. I had the perfect day and it really was perfect. Thank you to all the team who just got it so right. X

Wedding Bliss
Venue Service

By Kathryn L, on 30 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 11 May 2017

I would just like to thank Kim, Nathan and all the team at The Mill House for helping to make my daughter's wedding truly amazing. The venue is fantastic, whether you choose to use the intimate function rooms in the hotel (which we did) or the marquee in the garden (which we did too) I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Nothing is too much trouble for the helpful and friendly staff and the food is simply superb. I just wish we could do it all again!

Oh My God, what an amazing wedding venue
Venue Service

By Joanna Tayler, on 30 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 06 May 2017

We recently had the absolute pleasure of getting married at The Mill House. We christened the outdoor pagoda as the first couple to get married outside. Wow what a venue. The setting is amazing with a beautifully kept garden, quiet and private, all the things you want for a small intimate event. The canapés and food are to die for but the most impressive and important factor is the staff. They could have done no more to make our day perfect, they looked after the guests, kept us calm and the day on track. We didn't have to think about a thing. Fiona in particular made this the most special and amazing day ever. Thank you.

Firstly I'd like to thank everyone at The Mill House Hotel who made my daughters wedding the best day ever. From the moment I arrived the service was up there with the best , a very warm welcome. The Hotel and grounds were a perfect venue, they'd thought of everything. The location, the service ,the setting, the food , the marquee at the bottom of the garden were all perfect .

Fantastic Venue

By John Davies, on 02 May 2017Date of Wedding - 29 Apr 2017

After looking at several venues my Daughter and her Husband (to be ) visited The Mill House. From the very first meeting they were made to feel relaxed and everything would be exactly as they wanted. We were not let down. The Venue and staff were superb and made the day what it was. We have since received so many good comments from our guests. Thank you The Mill House

Perfect Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Karissa & Andrew Rossiter, on 11 May 2017Date of Wedding - 23 Apr 2017

We got married on the 23rd April 2017. We would just like to say a huge thank you to all of the staff who were extremely helpful and friendly whilst planning, and especially to Nathan who ran the day so smoothly and made sure everything was just how we wanted it to be! The food we had was delicious, wedding breakfast, buffet in the evening (my dad said the sausage rolls were the best he had ever eaten - even better than his own home made!) and breakfast the morning after. Many guests commented on how tasty the food was and how beautiful the venue is. We had a perfect day and would recommend to anyone looking into booking your wedding day at The Mill House!
