An independently family run hotel I attended my partners family wedding here.

I was a guest at a wedding and spent the night in the hotel. I love the idea that you have the whole hotel to yourself so don`t have to mix with anyone who is not attending the wedding.Very picturesque setting for the photos after the service.Superb staff, young friendly and helpful and very reasonable bar prices. There is a... More

Our daughter's wedding held on 6th June 2015 was a wonderful experience. Sally and her team worked tirelessly to ensure the occasion was perfect - the food was amazing and the location beautiful. We would recommend it to anyone wishing to arrange any special event, not just weddings but birthday and anniversary celebrations.

I'm glad you enjoyed the wedding. This was very much a family event and a great weekend get together starting with the buffet on the Friday evening. It was relaxed, stress free and calm throughout, quite unique for a wedding. The wedding breakfast is always difficult to get right in terms of the balance of speed in service. We never... More

We've just returned from my sisters wedding which was held at the hotel. It's fair to say that Sally, the hotel manager, went out of her way to make sure it was the perfect weekend for everyone. She certainly worked hard as did the other staff who were always friendly, professional and polite. The hotel is in a great location... More

James, Thank you for your kind words. It was a lovely simple sophisticated wedding where the people were more important than the frills and decoration. Everyone was lovely, friendly and kind and it made the day so much easier for us. Thanks again Sally More

We held our wedding here this weekend and everything from start to finish was perfect. Sally was amazing from the moment we enquired about holding our wedding here up until today when we collected a few last bits and bobs. Unlike so many wedding venues Sally makes sure that the day is all about you and ensures that your day... More
