    The most amazing day

    We had the most amazing wedding day here in May. Honestly, 5 stars isn't enough. When we first visited Upper House we were blown away by how beautiful the venue is and also by the amazing views. The venue is immaculate and there are so many stunning details which you notice each time you visit. Our guests had an amazing time here and we have had so many lovely comments about our day.
    Georgia, Nicola and Ellie couldn't do enough for us throughout the planning process and also throughout the day itself. It was very refreshing to meet owners of a venue that genuinely want you to have the best day and make you feel so welcome. This venue is not your typical 'wedding factory' which is extremely rare and a unique find. If you are thinking of visiting Upper House we are sure you will absolutely love it. Please also bear in mind there is limited availability throughout the year so book to view sooner rather than later as dates will book up quickly.
    Thank you for everything Georgia, Nicola & Ellie. We will have to come back and visit one day.
    Mr & Mrs Howarth

    Best day of our life!

    We got married at Upper House and it was an amazing weekend.

    Upper House is tastefully and beautifully restored, you couldn’t find a better setting for a wedding.

    Staying the weekend really enhanced our wedding because it’s difficult to get a chance to speak to everyone on the wedding day.

    Both Nicola and Georgia were really helpful and added the perfect finishing touches to the best day of our life.

    We got married in September 2017 and all through the process both Georgia and Nicola were immensely helpful and organized.

    Being able to tailor every aspect of the wedding appealed to us massively. Your coordination and organisation over the whole weekend was instrumental in making it a perfect wedding.

    The grounds and surrounding mountains are beautiful, Hayfield is a great little town.

    I could not imagine a more perfect weekend.
