    Best day EVER!

    Had to write this review straight away, the morning after our wedding. We can not recommend the Sitwell highly enough, a truly lovely venue with fabulous gardens and lake, the photos are going to look great. But what makes this place exceptional are the staff. Every question is answered, every need is attended; our day ran like clockwork. My wife and I cannot thank Laura and her team enough, we didn’t have to worry or think about a single other thing apart from enjoying our day. The food is gorgeous, and there’s plenty of it, the bar prices are good. Every single guest commented on how fantastic everything was.
    If you want a really good venue and a care free day you can remember for ever, this is the place. Spectacular!
    Laura, thank you, we will remember how special and welcoming you made our wedding day forever. Brilliant!

    The Value of the Package was Unbelievable!

    We had our Wedding there yesterday. It was truly amazing. Everything was perfect. The wedding breakfast was beautiful, served warm and quick. The Banqueting Suite was decorated lovely. Service and customer service fabulous. DJ was great. The rooms were gorgeous. Breakfast was great. This was a truly wonderful experience and the value of the package was unbelievable. We had to do nothing. The wedding ran very smoothly and everyone enjoyed it. A massive thank you to Laura our coordinator. I would honestly recommend The Sitwell for your Wedding

    Wow! What an amazing day!

    We had our wedding here on Saturday 30th November 2019 and wow what an amazing day it was. Everything ran smoothly and the rooms looked beautiful. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The wedding planners kept us calm especially me and made sure everything went as it should. The hair and make up girls are fantastic at what they do and me the bridesmaid and flower girls all look fantastic. Bex our wedding planner and the trainee (sorry can’t remember her name) couldn’t do enough for us and helped make the day what it was. I just wish we could do it all again. Thanks again
