Me and my wife (now) just got married here and we can honestly say it was the best choice by far. The staff gave us the best service we've ever had. I've stayed in 5 star hotels and I'm telling you the staff at the forge are better. Friendly, genuine people. The room was huge and the bath and shower... More

We booked this hotel just off the recommendations on here. Because we live over 2 hours away. And right from the start at the reception, the staff made us feel very welcomed. The bridal suite was beautiful. Nicely decorated throughout with a giant bathroom with speakers amazing shower and a spa bath. A bottle of champagne and a box of... More

What can I say! We booked our wedding here and I will say it was a little nerve racking not seeing the venue beforehand. We travelled 200 miles to the venue and when we arrived we were so happy. The grounds were perfect and immaculate. So much effort to make it special and to keep it completely tidy and clean.... More

My Son and Daughter In Law got married here recently. The Mill Forge is a perfect wedding venue set in idyllic surroundings.The staff are excellent very professional whilst maintaining great personality. They are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble. The complex itself was a working farm with its own forge. Both the workers cottages and stables have been... More

This was the 1st place we looked at and booked the dream package that day, booking the package was great and took all the stress out the day as the hotel staff booked the registrar, photographer and piper. The hotel grounds are beautiful and very well kept by the grounds keeper (willie) who we saw very often hard at work.... More

We had our wedding at the Mill and I could not fault it. The staff were excellent and the food was brilliant! All booked over email and phone, had never even visited the place first. We were not disappointed and are very grateful for the Mill for making our day so special

I booked the Mill Forge for our 25th wedding anniversary vow renewal and our 31 guests. It was all booked over the telephone and internet, so I was a bit nervous on how things would be on the big day, well I should never have worried right from checking In on the day before everything was perfect. The venue was... More

This was our first visit to the Mill Forge, having scoured venues for our special day, we chose wisely. The venue was faultless in every aspect, from the green blades of grass, to every stone put together, giving a very genuine and authentic experience for anyone's wedding. With wonderful touches, to melt our hearts further, from our hosts, the small... More

I don't know if I can express in words how perfect our day was. We arrived the evening before. The bridal suite was wonderful. Spacious, comfortable and the whirlpool bath was amazing.
