We had the Perfect Wedding at Whinstone View!

We had the most amazing wedding at Whinstone View. Dawn and the rest of the staff were so attentive on the day and made sure that everything happened on time and that everyone was well looked after. It really took a lot of stress out of the day. The venue itself is beautiful and the food was fantastic (we had the pie, very recommended!). We booked the weekend package which included accommodation at the on-site log cabins for our close family and everyone loved them. The hot tubs got good use! We truly had the perfect wedding and we know that we owe a lot of that to Whinstone View and the staff that work there!

Whinstone View

My wife and I (still love saying that) had our wedding at Whinstone View on December 4th after having to delay it due to Covid. The day couldn’t have gone better! All of the staff were incredible and went above and beyond from the moment we walked in the day before, to the moment we left. Huge thanks to Charlotte who ran the day for keeping me, the warmest human who has ever lived, cool by adjusting the air con for me constantly and also Dawn who from our first meeting was excellent and made the day run without a single hitch, excuse the pun. Still a few months on people are still talking about the food (the pie) and how amazing it was. We cannot wait to come for dinner there again and stay in the most beautiful and relaxing lodges. Thank you! You made it an incredible day that we will never ever forget. 💍🍽🍺🥂🍾🍷

Awesome team and beautiful barn and location!

All I can say is that the team at Whinstone View are AMAZING, we couldnt have asked for more. They have negotiated their way through the pandemic fabulously and we had both our small ceremony and our wedding celebrations in the barn and both times we couldn't have asked any more of the team. A truly memorable experience...we just want to do it all again now! xx

Amazing and the most magical venue ever!

We have been coming to whinstone view ever since we got together back in 2013. We finally got married in august 2021 and wouldnt of picked a better place . The team are amazing here would go out of there way and do anything for you. Dawn was our wedding coordinator and she was absolutely amazing. Our day was the best day ever , everything we ever hoped for. Everything from start to finish was sucessfully all in order. We have been coming here for meals too and the food is insane. The place is so clean . Weve done over night stays too and the lodges are beautiful. Just feels like home when we come and stay to have a little break. Would definetly recommend getting married here and even coming for a stay over night. Our wedding guests commented all day on how amazing it was , some of them even say wedding goals. Thankyou too all the staff at whinstone view , thankyou for making the best wedding of our dreams come true.

100% the place to get married

Got married August 2021 after having to postpone due to covid pandemic back in August 2020. From the day booking our wedding to making new plans and on the day itself the staff were amazing throughout. I’m very hard to please 🙈 and they certainly met my expectations. The venue was beautifully set out on the day and nothing was an issue to them. My mam took I’ll just after the ceremony and they made sure an ambulance was called and looked after her so the rest of the guests could carry on. Even putting Schedule back until ambulance came. Throughout the rest of the evening even still asking on updates from hospital on her well-being. If you looking for a different venue that modern rustic feel with breathtaking surroundings. Whinstone View is the place. I would do it all again if I could. The food and cocktails are amazing as well. A lot of my guests have said that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. So don’t look anywhere else, just book it 👍

Personal, flexible and professional team providing the most special and memorable day

The team at Whinstone View gave us the best personal wedding experience that we could have asked for, right from the start when we were searching for a venue until after our big day. We want to do it all over again with the team at Whinstone!
We had quite a stressful time in the run up to the wedding, with covid putting the date on the rocks. However, Dawn and the team where flexible and empathetic throughout all of our stress. They pulled out all the stops to make sure our big day went as smoothly as possible, and they delivered!
Mandy in lodges was very helpful when it came to our overnight accommodation and made sure all of our guests had the best possible time – some of my family are hard to please but they were astounded with the lodge and all of its facilities.
On the night, Toby was a fantastic, friendly host by interacting with our guests, making sure everyone was happy and having a good time.
We had family travelling from across the UK and had guests commenting that “the venue was perfect and offered something for everyone”, “it was the best wedding I’ve ever been to” and the best comment was “this wedding was perfect and marked the start of life getting back to normal after covid. It couldn’t have been better”.
Special shout to Beat Boutique who provided a unique experience for our guests in a beautiful location and also to Kane Young who captured our special day in the most perfect place.
Would 100% recommend Wray’s Barn at Whinstone View for the best wedding experience.
Thank you to the team!

Incredible venue, Incredible staff, Incredible wedding.

I really don't know where to start with this incredible venue.
After booking our wedding in 2018, we finally tied the knot in 2021, Mandy, Dawn, and all of the staff at Whinstone have been there for us through every step of the way, they were there every time we needed them and always went above and beyond in every way possible. When covid hit and we had to rearrange our wedding, they were just brilliant, they were in such a tough position as a business and yet their heart and soul went into making their brides and grooms at ease through all of that turmoil.
Usually, wedding prices increase yearly, so when we had to rearrange our wedding, we thought we were going to be hit financially due to the inflation, and yet Whinstone View didn't charge a penny more, they honoured our original price booked from 2018, that being 3 years of price increases and they supported us completely.

As July 2021 fast approached, they went above and beyond for us, they did everything exactly as we envisioned, it was truly out of this world. Dawn and Mandy aren't just staff, they turn into your friends, your help when you need it and not forgetting your personal drink deliverer on the wedding day! I can't speak anymore highly of them if I tried.
The guests commented all day on how great everything was, the staff were there at everyone's hand and foot for whatever they needed.
Wray's Barn is a place that will hold a special place in my heart forever.

We stayed in Frida the night before with my bridesmaids and it was just amazing, everyone loved it and the lodge was immaculate. On the wedding night, us and our family stayed in all of the other lodges and they were out of this world, they were stylish, clean, comfy, and again, the staff couldn't do more! Even the gardener helped me clean my car before we left! (Thank you Micheal)

We had the best day of our lives and we couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Thank you to everyone at Whinstone View, you have or custom and loyalty for life.
All our love, Mr & Mrs McCarthy.

Flawless - genuine care for their customers

Absolutely flawless from start to finish.
Planning a wedding during a worldwide pandemic was never going to be easy, but Dawn and the team genuinely had our best interests at heart. Moved dates no bother, honoured our packages, and made our day absolutely perfect from start to finish.
The food was incredible, the lodges were fantastic, and it was well worth the wait. It was our dream come true - genuinely the best day of our lives and we plan to spend every anniversary having a meal here.

I’d recommend Whinstone View to anyone, for any occasion. The team genuinely go above and beyond to make it perfect! ❤️

The best wedding day

We had the absolute best time at our wedding and it was largely down to Dawn and her team. From booking the date to the organisation, everything was so easy and well managed. No question was too small and they clearly have the process down like a well oiled machine. Dawn always made us feel comfortable and helped put any worries we had at ease throughout the process and leading up to the big day. On the wedding day Dawn and Peter were both around to make sure everything went well. We cannot thank them enough!

Just pure magic

Our wedding at Wray’s Barn Whinstone View was nothing short of magical. ✨
Planning a wedding up north whilst living down south could’ve been very stressful, but the team at Whinstone View made everything feel smooth, stress free and so enjoyable. They got back to me quickly with every query, were so helpful and lovely. On the day I felt in such safe hands, everything was seamless, the food and drinks were lush and the venue was just as stunning as I had imagined.
So romantic, rustic and beautiful.
We even stayed the night after and a had our first dinner date as husband and wife in the bistro, and it was unreal!
Truly the perfect day and the perfect venue.
Thank you so much to Dawn and the team at Whinstone View for our magical wedding. 👰🏼‍♀️

Wedding September 2021

We held our wedding ceremony and reception at Whinstone View in September 2021. It was perfect, everything we wanted it to be and more.

The venue was great, rustic and just what we’d envisaged.

The team were always extremely helpful, no question was too silly (which helps when you’re likely to overthink every aspect of your special day!).

The food was exceptional, and they supported us to build a bespoke menu that fit with ours and our guests dietary requirements. Some guests said it was the best wedding food they’d ever had!

They also worked really well with external suppliers, really took the stress off us and helped every step of the way.

Couldn’t recommend Dawn and the team enough. ❤️

Mrs K Grazier

After 4 different wedding dates due to COVID, Dawn and the team were absolutely fantastic at every step of the way. When something felt like a huge and demanding request from me as a bride to be, Dawn took it all in her stride and put me at ease and made me feel like it was a walk in the park to her and the team. The place and staff exceeded all our expectations and when we finally got to our big day it was worth every delay, tear, stress and emotion we went through. Only thing I could add is that I would love to be able to relive it all over again. It was the best day of my life and the staff were fantastic. The full day was so organised and relaxed and flows brilliantly. Cannot thank the team enough and praise such a beautiful location and setting for our perfect day.
