The whole venue looked beautiful
Venue Service

By Louise and Lee, on 09 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 16 Sep 2017

Excellent Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Hampton, on 12 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 23 Oct 2016

We had a truly perfect and magical wedding day at this wonderful venue. We want to give a massive thank you to Ian and his team for all the hard work they put in on our wedding day. Ian helped us to decorate the venue on the morning of our wedding and his team took the decorations down on the next day. The wedding day ran smoothly and nothing was too much trouble for the venue or the staff. The wedding breakfast tables were set up exactly as we asked. The staff were very friendly and helpful, always having smiles on their faces. Ian regularly checked in with us on the day, to check that everything was ok. The food was excellent and our guests rated it very highly. The gift we received from you was a lovely surprise and a special memento of our wedding day. Having the use of the deluxe room for free for the night with bed and breakfast was an added bonus. We highly recommend this venue to anyone getting married.

Absolutely fantastic venue so helpful and homely from the start I felt so relaxed and stress free they helped with so much and we could always speak to someone if we needed to. Decorated the room beautifully on the day just how I imagined it and Ian was brilliant keeping us informed of what was happening next he made sure everything was perfect and ran smoothly! Was a fantastic gorgeous stress free wedding couldn't have asked for more! Me and husband now go back here every year for a meal on our anniversary and I'm always recommending this venue!

Amazing Wedding Reception
Venue Service

By Kim and Tim Amies, on 20 Aug 2014

Thank you so much for giving us the most amazing wedding reception. Everyone has commented on how well organised it all was and how the food was fantastic - they all loved your bow tie as well Ian. We know we would not have had such a great day if it had not been for all the hard work put in by all the staff. You really are a fantastic team. Extra special thanks to Beccy for taking such great care of us from the moment we came in last snowy February.

Venue Service

By Dr and Dr H, on 29 Jul 2012

A massive thank you to Ian, Becky, and everyone at the Old Rectory for making our wedding day special. If you are looking for an intimate venue with a fun and relaxed atmosphere then I cannot recommend the Old Rectory enough. It provided exactly what we were hoping for and all of our family and friends said how perfect it was! The gardens looked beautiful, the food was fabulous, and the change-overs between each part of the day were seamless.... Ian even ordered some beautiful weather for us! Ian was the perfect toastmaster and was also extremely good at keeping us all nice and calm! Thank you so much for making our day amazing!

Absolutely perfect!!!!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Scott Owers, on 20 May 2012

We had the most amazing day ever, and Ian, Becky and the rest of the team were fantastic!! We wanted a real family feeling day as we had over 20 children attending. Ian and Becky were brilliant in allowing us to have a great mix of tradition and informal/quirky ideas to make it a special day not just for us, but the whole wedding party. The venue, grounds, food, drinks, breakfast for all those staying over, and most importantly the service was first class. Everyone had a great day!!! As an extra special touch we were also given a lovely gift which we will always treasure. HUGE thank you to everyone who helped make our day perfect.

Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Pywell - 03.03.12, on 04 Mar 2012

Having just had our wedding at The Old Rectory we can truly say what a wonderful and perfect day and night we had there. From start to finish Ian, Becky and the team worked hard to ensure a smooth, pleasant and relaxed day was had by all. The service and food received was of a high and very professional standard, but with a kind and caring manner, including a lovely surprise gift courtesy of the hotel! Very thoughtful. Many thanks to Ian and Becky for making our day better then we had ever dreamed! Your eye for detail and attentive behavior was very much appreciated.
