Disappointing, cold and highly stressful would sum up our experience of Foxholes Farm as a wedding reception venue for several reasons, some of which are listed below
The marquee - photos on website in no way represent the marquee that is actually used; We were promised a new marquee- the one we actually had was in excess of 10years old and not exactly the “beautiful marquee” advertised nor does it open onto a beautiful grass area as shown in photos.
The heating was totally inadequate. There was one small heater, 2 were promised but even that would have been insufficient in March. Guests were extremely cold and uncomfortable making for a miserable time particularly when sitting still during the meal
The venue is advertised as “entirely yours” for the weekend –in fact we shared it with 2 couples looking round on Saturday and more couples on the actual morning of the wedding. Rachel Hague the owner/manager had booked these viewings and was meeting with these couples and showing them around.
There is not sufficient review space to add issues relating to costs, accommodation, catering, being asked to leave before time, lack of any mobile network etc etc!!
Foxholes Farm really is in a beautiful location but the “bespoke”
Wedding package was anything but bespoke.-the words amateur and unprofessional spring to mind.
We fully anticipate that Rachel Hague will challenge and deny all these facts.
