Having celebrated my 40th birthday at Coltsfoot last year and my partner's 50th this year, I can not praise enough Colette and Ray and all the staff for all their close attention to detail and fantastic customer service. The venue is beautiful and the atmosphere is relaxed yet efficient. The food is spectacular and all very reasonably priced.

Spent yesterday / last night here as a part of a wedding party. Lovely venue ideally situated. Once parked and booked in we were greeted with a selection of drinks and canapés. A fabulous three course meal efficiently served in the beautifully decorated marquee. Our room was nicely furnished, comfortable and warm and opened out onto an attractive view of... More

We have eaten here many times and been very happy with the venue and food. Then,recently this was the wedding venue we chose, and I cannot find any fault with the venue, food, staff or management. They were all simply fantastic. Helen, the wedding planner, in particular, was a star; so thoughtful and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The... More

We stayed one night at the beginning of March. Spacious room with vaulted beamed ceiling. Large bathroom and quite modern. Room as a slightly dated feel, though some people might say rustic! Lovely view from the rear and a small but private patio with table. Quaint bar and restaurant areas. Good food and very friendly staff. No real complaints at... More

We had our wedding here. The team were so helpful and did everything we wanted for our wedding. Settings, venue, food, all perfect. Our guests had a ball. Helen in particular was such a gem. Thanks everyone at Coltsfoot!

Stayed here one night as a wedding guest. My room was beautiful with plenty of space to relax, and everything I needed including a lovely bathroom with an enormous shower and underfloor heating. The staff were welcoming and efficient, and I could happily have stayed in my room rather than go back to the wedding reception. My one regret was... More

This is the second time my husband has booked this country retreat as a valentines getaway. Once again it didn't disappoint. Hidden away, its a real gem. There are only 15 rooms which are all individually designed. Wonderful furnishings, super large beds, underfloor heating and robes to relax in. Our first room had a roll top bath. The rooms have...

We knew as soon as we walked into Coltsfoot that we wanted to have our wedding reception here. The views over the countryside are just beautiful and the wooden beams and fireplace are so welcoming.

We stayed one night for a family celebration and thought it was a lovely place. Our room in a converted barn was large and had a high ceiling with beams. It was well furnished and comfortable with a great view over the countryside. We could see horses and rabbits from our window. The food was excellent and service also good.... More
