We would like to thank the team at Cranford Country Lodge for making our wedding unforgettable, stress- free and absolutely seamless. It was amazing how many guests complimented us on our choice of venue, how amazing the food was, the relaxed feeling of the venue and further, how great the accommodation was. Cranford became a villa, filled with our family... More

Cranford is a beautiful majestic place where... More

Dear Debbie, Claire, Viv and the Cranford team. I do not think words could ever express our gratitude for everything you did to make our wedding everything we ever dreamed of, and more! No detail was forgotten and you all far exceeded our expectations. From our first walk through your lodge, to the planning phase, to the collection of the... More

For a minute i thought i was in England , lovely old fashion cottages (come with a mouldy smell too so open the windows LOL). Great hospitality atmosphere and food. The Lapa is lovely and there are nearby tourist activities and spa. Not cheap though, posh place.

About three years ago my sister and I went horse riding at Cranford Country Lodge. The owner took us out on a stunning ride through the forest and surrounding countryside. This was to be a horseride I'll never forget. After we had finished, I desperately needed the loo and was told I could pop into the barn and use the... More

We stayed at Cranford as a couple this weekend and even though we experienced typical Midlands weather, it was by far one of the most beautiful places I've stayed at. The staff are friendly and very helpful, and the management team very accommodating. The rates were affordable, and if you love Appaloosa horses, you will be in heaven. They have... More

We had the wedding in the chapel due to the weather and had a lovely time down at the Lapa before heading up to the reception. During the reception everyone was served quickly and... More
