About Thornton Manor

Welcome to Thornton Manor; an inviting period Manor House, sat in 120 acres of parkland and exquisite gardens. Standing proudly in the village of Thornton Hough. Thornton Manor was originally built as the home of the Leverhulme family and exudes historic enchantment and charm.

The Manor House
Within the house there are three fabulous locations where we can stage wedding ceremonies. Whether you prefer the early Georgian-inspired Dining Room with its beautiful walnut paneling overlooking the lime tree avenues, or the stunning Music Room adorned with spectacular wall paneling, elaborate plaster work and period paintings, our beautiful house will simply take your breath away.

    Avoid at all costs

    This was my son and daughter in laws dream. They were due to get married on a Saturday in May but due to corona virus their wedding was cancelled.
    The management at Thornton Manor refused to refund any monies and said they would offer an alternate date which was a Sunday in winter. As both my son and his partner are frontline NHS staff they could not accept a Sunday wedding as many of their guests who were work colleagues would not have been able to attend. They requested a Saturday in May in 2021 and even offered to pay extra if prices had increased but were told these dates were for new bookings only. My son requested a refund which they refused advising my son to claim through his wedding insurance and to rebook the new date with them once he had the refund saying this would be a ‘win win’.
    This was extremely stressful as my son and his partner had to cancel everything that was booked including caterers, photographer, florist music etc as they could not give anyone a rearranged date as they were unsure if their insurance would refund them.
    Throughout all communication management at Thornton manor were extremely unhelpful and often extremely rude. On one occasion the Manager,_____, told my son he was ‘very lucky’ working on the front line in the NHS as his job was secure !
    My son and his partner did get a refund from their insurance and made the decision not to rebook with Thornton Manor due to the terrible way the Management had treated them.
    Thornton Manor refused to refund monies guests had paid in full for bedrooms in the Manor House meaning they still have this plus the 8.5k paid for the venue . PLEASE AVOID

    Our Wedding Day

    We got married on 28.12.19 in the Manor House and had the most perfect day ever. On the run up to the wedding we were in regular contact with all of the wedding coordinators all of which were an absolute dream to work with.

    On the day of our wedding everything went amazingly, they even let me set up a day early due to there being no wedding in the day before which was fantastic.

    Rooms we stayed in were fantastic and really in keeping with the character of the venue, would highly recommend the gate house to stay in the night before.

    The Manor House- WOW! Everyone commented on how stunning the venue was and if you get married at Christmas like we did it is fully decked out with gorgeous decorations and Christmas trees.

    Every member of staff I dealt with was just fantastic and nothing was too much for them.

    Thank you Thornton Manor for the most amazing, stress free wedding day.
