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.

Fantastic Wedding Venue

By Chris Davies, on 30 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Apr 2017

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 . Maybe they had a hand in the weather as that was perfect also for April. Anyone out there looking for a wedding venue , this place has it all . From the manager fitting our button holes , it's own Chaple area, to a beautiful light and airy dining experience , to the adoring staff whom nothing was to much trouble. Chris would Just like to thank you all again for making my daughters wedding the best I've ever been to .

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!

We had our wedding here on 13/04/17. What a perfect place for a wedding! The staff could not have been more hardworking and friendly. Kim and Mark work incredibly hard to make sure you have the best day, with such attention to detail from the outset. Nathan, the master of ceremonies clearly has a huge passion for this industry and he really does put his all into ensuring the day runs smoothly. All the wedding coordinators are also very happy to help and quick to respond to any questions which makes the planning process reassuring and easy. We had so many comments from our guests about how wonderful this hotel is. It really is a hidden gem and with having exclusive use of the entire hotel, gardens and marquee it really is home from home and very intimate and personal. Thank you to all at the mill house!

Perfect Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Lucy & Chris Harbor, on 30 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Apr 2017

I recently had my wedding at the Mill House and they made the day absolutely perfect. From the day we enquired until after the wedding, nothing was ever too much trouble. The bedrooms are lovely, the grounds are stunning, the staff are so lovely and the food is to die for. What more could you want?

Wonderful Place for a Wedding
Venue Service

By Yvonne Elliott, on 30 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 25 Mar 2017

got married there on March 25th and can highly recommend the hotel. The hotel worked with us all the way making sure it was the wedding we wanted. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was fabulous and we will be going back to eat there again. The layout of the hotel suited us perfectly with quieter areas for people who didn't want to join in the dancing and a whole room for the kids where we had video's and toys.

A Perfect Wedding
Venue Service

By Karen & Rob, on 30 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Aug 2016

What an absolute gem and amazing wedding venue! We had our wedding at The Mill House on Thursday August 4th 2016, including the ceremony, and I just can't thank them enough for everything: it was perfect from start to finish! It is a real lovely family-run hotel who care about every client! Mark and Kim (the owners) are truly hands on and are very organised! In the lead up to the wedding, the whole team were amazing, friendly and always there for us if we had a question, particularly Lorna who is lovely! It made us feel very special. We decided to stay the night before the wedding as well for ease and lots of our family had to travel quite a distance, and organised a meal for 26 of us at the Mill House. As soon as we arrived we felt relaxed, they were so welcoming to everyone, the food was gorgeous and everyone had a great time. Everyone who stayed was very happy with their rooms and I stayed in the bridal room which is just amazing!! I had a brilliant sleep and used the lovely jacuzzi bath :) Our wedding day was just wonderful! We had a gorgeous breakfast and the team reassured me all was fine. Every detail was taken care of. Throughout the day they couldn't do enough for us and kept checking we were happy. Up until the time we left at lunchtime the next day, we were made to feel very special and we were sad it had all come to an end. Thank you so much Mark, Kim, Lorna, Nathan and all the staff!

best day!

I got married here nearly 10 years ago and I will never forget how amazing mark the manager and the staff where. I recommend this venue all the time and my memories are fantastic!! the best day and nothing was never too much.

Impossible to praise too highly
Venue Service

By David Bluett, on 09 Mar 2016

The title says it all. Lovely location, marvellous staff, fantastic food, tremendous attention to detail, but what really sets the Mill House apart is their flexibility. My daughter was very depressed by the number of venues that told her she could have one of the following "packages". At the Mill House it was "what would you like?" and "we can do that." A truly memorable day made special through the Mill House.
