A Very Special Place
Venue Service

By Dave Harvey, on 05 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 21 Dec 2019

We fell in love with Thicket Priory, it is an absolutely stunningly gorgeous venue and the team who run the events are fantastic. Thank you Anna and Rebecca, you were always on hand to help everything run so smoothly to make sure we had the best day that we possibly could. It was so special getting married in the private chapel and having the dinner and rooms all under the same roof, it all worked perfectly for us. We have had so many compliments from our family and friends about the delicious food and the wonderful pantries! It was better than we could have imagined it would be!

Fab-u-lous, absolutely loved it

From our first sight of Thicket Priory, we knew it was the perfect venue for a wedding. Everything from the decor, location, beautiful gardens, bedrooms to die for, fabulous food made the day so special. It was so much better than staying in a hotel, it was a private house party! I felt so privileged to be there and to be able to stay overnight was the icing on the cake. So much better than anything we expected and better than any wedding we have ever been to. Anna and the team made us feel relaxed all the way and we can't thank all of the staff enough for their friendly and professional approach to the whole day. I actually cannot put into words how much of a perfect day and night we had and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Thicket to anyone looking to tie the knot, such a perfect beautiful house. Memories that will be treasured forever. Thank you so much.

Thicket Priory met my every expectation in every way. The attention to the tiniest details demonstrate the history of the building, enhance the guests experience and show the teams commitment . We had an amazing event here and I am so grateful to Anna and the team for making our very special night so amazing. They were flexible, hardworking, diligent and very proactive – spotting, well before we did, that something might be a potential issue and heading it off at the pass. Anna was a joy to work with; very professional with an infectious personality, a complete aura of calm and ready to step in to support us without us even having to ask.

We were lucky enough to be invited to Thicket Priory for the weekend. The venue is spectacular, with 34 luxurious rooms on site, the staff were attentive and friendly and the food amazing. I would highly recommend Thicket Priory for incredible weddings.

Just beautiful

By Karen Murden, on 07 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 16 Mar 2019

Thicket Priory is a really special place. The drive up to the house, the grounds, the rooms which have been beautifully and tastefully restored, the attention to detail and impeccable service. We felt honoured to have the opportunity to spend a weekend there. An outstanding venue for a wedding.

Elegant and Timeless
Venue Service

By Bryan Young, on 24 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 16 Mar 2019

As we drove up the road to Thicket Priory I was taken with the beauty and grandeur of this beautiful country estate. I knew we were in for a once in a lifetime weekend. We walked in and you immediately noticed the scale of the property, and the decor and attention to details was felt throughout. We all arrived in street clothes, but when we arrived in the bar where everyone was dress smartly in black tie, we were taken aback by the feel of a time in history that not longer exists. From the food, to the ambience and entertainment, everything was exceptional. If you are considering a wedding at this venue, move fast because this gem will book up quickly I am sure.

Fantastic Venue

By Andrew Stead, on 24 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 16 Mar 2019

We spent one night at Thicket Priory and had a fantastic stay. The venue had so much character! We were lucky enough to see all of the different types of rooms and they were all amazing. The staff were so friendly and welcoming and no request was too much. I couldn't think of a better venue for a couple to spend their special day!

Step Back in Time
Venue Service

By Ken Carlile, on 23 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 16 Mar 2019

From the moment you arrive there is the realisation that you are about to partake in a special event. This country home has been beautifully restored to its original grandeur. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed with various views of the gardens, apple grove and lake. The bathrooms remind you of some of the finest spas. We enjoyed appetisers and cocktails in a comfortable bar before retiring to the dining room for one of the best catered meals I’ve ever had. This was truly an evening that felt like you were stepping back to the Downton Abbey era. Don’t think twice about signing on to a wedding event at Thicket Priory that will create memories you will be talking about for a lifetime.

Stepping Back in Time
Venue Service

By Ken Carlile, on 22 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 16 Mar 2019

Wow, what can I say. I’m still remembering my first step into Thicket Priory. What an amazing location. You really feel like you’re walking into a Downtan Abbey country home. Everything is in keeping with the country home estate feel from the beautifully decorated rooms to the never ending outdoor space. The lake is an added bonus. You could tell that a lot of time was spent on making this event a magical one. The guests arrived and were given keys to their suites. The rooms were beautifully decorated and every window was a revelation of the beautiful orchards and grounds outside. The bathrooms were spacious and well appointed. The event began with cocktails and appetisers in the bar. Everyone showed up smartly dressed and ready for an epic evening. When we moved to the dining room, the decor was stunning. Chrystal chandeliers, beautiful floral arrangements and wonderful smells emanating from the kitchen. The food was top notch, and even the special dietary options looked delicious. The live entertainment made for a truly special day. This gem of a location would be high on my list of wedding venues. There aren’t enough adjectives to describe Thicket Priory but unique, quaint and beautiful will have to do.

A Unique Venue

North Yorkshire Wedding Venue

By Ian Lovatt, on 20 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 16 Mar 2019

I was lucky to have received an invitation to the launch of this new North Yorkshire wedding venue and was overwhelmed by the sheer elegance of this former monastery. Every room was beautifully decorated with attention to detail a top priority, the food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and accommodating and overall the Priory was a stunning venue. Any couple planning their special day would, I’m sure, have an ‘extra special’ day here.
