We booked our wedding day here some time ago, and heard some poor reviews about the venue after their reorganisation. The new team did their best to reassure us as we considered changing locations for our day. We're pleased we decided to stay! Our special day was faultless. From planning to breakfast the next morning, everything was perfect. We even... More

Amazing wedding venue. Great ambience, great food and great staff & hospitality. Everyone enjoyed themselves and were impressed with the house and garden. The five bedrooms upstairs has so much character and were comfortable. Not sure if it's open to general public but definitely a great place for events if you want your guests and participants to be wowed. Very... More

I've been to two weddings at the Mansion House. One was a while ago and the whole thing, marriage, reception and evening do was at the Mansion House. I was impressed with it then. I've just been at my daughter's wedding reception and been involved in the organisation. The staff were very helpful and I'd like particularly to thank the... More

We held our wedding reception at the Mansion House on 27th December 2013. The staff were all very helpful. One even gave us his mobile number so we could contact him if we had any questions. The whole day was absolutely amazing! The staff coped very well with us arriving late from the church. Fires were lit and the whole... More

We held our wedding at the Mansion House, and I can't praise the venue enough. The team were friendly, attentive and professional, the house and grounds were beautiful, and the food was fresh, plentiful and tasty. This is a very special place.
