Rob & Erica - Whinstone Wonderland
Venue Service

By Erica Law, on 13 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 30 Oct 2019

We got married at Whinstone View in October and it was the most amazing day. The setting was just magical and nothing was too much trouble for the staff, who really went above and beyond... not to mention the gorgeous food. It really was the perfect beginning to our married life together and would recommend the venue to anyone! Thank you to everyone at Whinstone View for making our day so special. Love Erica x Rob

The Davison Wedding 28.10.19
Venue Service

By Megan & Michael Davison, on 20 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 28 Oct 2019

Whinstone view was the first wedding venue we visited, and from the very first look we were totally in love with it! We wanted the perfect rustic, autumnal wedding (preferably a barn) - and Whinstone view was literally perfect! The wedding team made the whole process so, so easy - the planning meetings, the emails, everything so clear, understandable and planned on their end with so much precision and advance. We really had nothing to worry about! All of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue looked, they loved the food (even our gluten free and vegetarian/fussy guests!), and nothing seemed to much trouble whenever we asked. The staff were genuinely so lovely (even saving me some of my favourite dessert brownies for later!). Additionally we all stayed in the lodges on the night of the wedding (20 of us) - and the lodges and breakfast were absolutely lush. Myself and my bridal team also stayed the night before in the Blue lodge, and the little details (like prosecco, popcorn and chick flicks) just made it that extra bit more special. Overall, it was the day we always hoped it would be, and we really just want to do it all over again. Thank you so much Whinstone View! xx

Whinstone View - the perfect venue!
Venue Service

By Hannah & Matthew Ward, on 17 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 12 Oct 2019

We got married at Whinstone View 5 weeks ago on October 12th and it was absolutely perfect - the barn and surroundings made such a rustic, calm and beautiful setting for the day, made even better when we unexpectedly managed an outdoor ceremony! A massive thank you to Dawn and the team for their help on the run-up to the wedding and even more so on the big day - Dawn honestly couldn't do enough for us and worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make sure everything ran seamlessly. We'd highly recommend Whinstone to anyone on the hunt for a wedding venue - it was everything we could have asked for and more!

We had a beautiful wedding here in August 2019. The staff were fantastic in the build up to the wedding and during the day itself. They added a great touch with the table tennis and we couldn't have asked for more. Thank you to Dawn and her team for a great day!

Our perfect barn wedding
Venue Service

By Adrianne Tooth, on 30 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Aug 2019

We had our wedding here in August 2019. The day was beautiful and nothing was too much trouble. The team set the room out beautifully and made sure everything went as it should do on the day. I simply enjoyed the entire day and didn't have to worry about a thing. The venue itself is stunning and makes a beautiful back drop for photos with Roseberry topping nearby for some gorgeous photos too. Thank you to Dawn and the team for helping our beautiful wedding dreams become a reality.

The Best Day of Our Lives
Venue Service

By Lauren Ward, on 30 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 05 Aug 2019

I really don’t know where to start with my review of Whinstone View. Me and my husband got married here 5/08/19. Myself and my bridal party stayed in Kuki lodge the night before. From the very second we arrived the staff at Whinstone View could not have done enough for me. From bringing breakfast to my lodge on the morning, the moving of my bags into the lodge for me and my husband on the night. During the wedding breakfast even my 8 year old daughter commented on how special she felt. All my guests were very complimentary of the venue the amazing food and the tentative staff. Dawn and Mandy were who I dealt with the most and it was so lovely having Dawn part of our wedding day, she felt like part of the guest list but also totally professional. Thank you again Whinstone View from the Ward family

A perfect rustic countryside venue
Venue Service

By Laura Barber, on 31 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Aug 2019

As soon as we saw Wray's Barn we knew it was the right location for us. the barn is stunning and does not need any of the extra touches a different wedding venue may need. the twinkly lights light up the place and certainly add to the special feel. dawn, Mandy and Peter couldn't have helped us more on the day and in the lead up to the wedding. I cant thank them enough. Everyone commented on how beautiful the venue was and because it was all flat it was perfect for our family focused wedding that was full of small children, toddlers and babies. We chise the Vintage package which included lawn games which the children loved. many people who came to Wray's Barn said how perfect the venue was. the lodges etc give this venue the extra dynamic and offered our long travelled guests the perfect relaxing haven. I would love to stay over again and... looking forward to my sister's place at the same venue- thats how perfect it is.

Amazing from start to finish!
Venue Service

By Nicola and Karl Hawthorne, on 30 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Jul 2019

Myself and my husband married here in July 2019 and it was the most amazing day we could have wished for and more. We had bonkers weather all day from bright sunshine to torrential downpours back to being sunny enough for our guests to be playing lawn games all evening and yet the team all around were amazing having everything just perfect for us! The food was delicious and our guests loved the options available on the dessert table. We had friends and family travel from as far as Australia to visit us on our special day and everyone commented on what a gorgeous venue it was and how relaxed the entire feel of the place was. We will definitely be returning for future events!

Perfect Wedding Reception
Venue Service

By Sarah Jacques, on 07 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 27 May 2019

Our wedding reception was held at Whinstone View in May. Wray’s barn had the perfect rustic charm and the surrounding grounds with willow trees were perfect for our 'rustic romantic' theme with botanical twist. We loved that it was exclusive to us so there wasn't a chance of bumping into another bride and that our guests didn't have to stay in one place all day. They could mingle on the seating area on the veranda with views of the grounds, play lawn games outside or chat in the courtyard as well as the main barn area. It also had quirky lodges with private hot tubs for accommodation. All of the wedding team were very helpful and friendly from the initial planning process and on the day itself, making sure everything ran smoothly and was in place for exactly how we wanted it. The food was delicious, we've since been back to the bistro to taste the amazing sticky toffee pudding all over again! I would definitely recommend for future bride & grooms.
