“Perfect wedding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

We would just like to say the biggest thanks to everyone involved in making our wedding day so perfect. From choosing the venue 18 months prior to arriving the night before we were looked after so well and put at ease-everyone was just ready to help. The day itself went so smoothly- everyone said what a perfect wedding venue, ESP as we managed to have our service outside- all our guests said the food couldn't have been better. It really was the most perfect day, thanks to everyone involved we didn't have a stress or worry to think about all day- I would recommend this venue 100 %- so accommodating, the rooms are gorgeous, the venue is stunning for photos- just everything was perfect. Thank you again for the wonderful memories you helped us make. Lou and Dan Hurst.

Stayed here on a one night business trip - just wanted somewhere to sleep after a very long day and found it in a lovely location out in the woods - their rooms are either in a house or in little chalets in a terrace, the chalet bedroom and bathroom is very modern in its design and they have spend the money here. BUT BUT BUT apparently they also entertain weddings and other functions which means setting up a marque adjacent to the sleeping quarters and guests have to endure the thump thump thump along with the never ending jangle of whatever trolley that seems to be doing laps of the place.

On that have you considered upgrading the trolley to be less noisy - and you need to sound proof the chalets....

So HUGE potential, friendly staff - shuttle bus - however the HUGE potential for holding functions seems to take precedence - pity

Room Tip: ask for in a room in the house - and ask if there is going to be functions held on the night you'...

Thank you for your email, we are always pleased to receive feedback be it good or otherwise and all feedback is reviewed and acted on when it is received.

With regards to the location of our bedrooms, we are very conscious that some of our rooms are located close to our wedding venues and therefore when we do take bookings on nights we have functions we always take the time to warn people that a wedding will be taking place and that the hotel will not be as quiet as it usually is. We try where possible to allocate rooms away from the function rooms however due to the layout of the farm this is not always possible.

We would like to apologise to this reviewer that they did not get as good a night’s sleep as they should have and although midweek functions are rare we would agree with their room tip that if people are staying with us and not attending a function that they request one of our quieter rooms.

We attended our Nephew's Wedding. A really lovely, unique location for such a special day. The Wedding took place in a Barn decorated for the occasion. The Registrar made the ceremony pleasant, fun and sincere. After the wedding we relocated to the special dedicated garden area where we had drinks served and photos taken. All very relaxed and not rushed. The day was hot and sunny which helped. We then returned to the barn which had been transformed into a dining area - once again beautifully dressed tables. After the meal we relocated again whilst the room was transformed into an evening venue for music and dance floor. Later in the evening a buffet was laid out in the lobby area between the bar and the barn.

We stayed the night in a top class room. It was immaculately clean. The room was comfortable and quiet. The bed was extremely comfortable with a super duvet. There was a fridge, safe, a bottle of their own water from their own borehole, tea, coffee etc. The bathroom was perfect, large and extremely clean. Outside the room was our own patio area with table, chairs and outside light. The room was called "Dexter". Perfect.

In the morning we took our breakfast outside the restaurant. The breakfast was exceptional - there was everything and anything you could want on a serve yourself basis. Perfect.

Overall this is an impressive, unique, well organized venue and I would highly recommend it for any special occasion. It would also be perfect for corporate conferencing etc.

The staff were excellent from the Master of Ceremonies to the Kitchen Porters and cleaners!
If I were to be totally honest - the Wedding meal was very good - but there was not enough of it -it was a long day and people were hungry by the time the food arrived. Something to think about if your family are used to hearty meals!

Perhaps a couple of sofas in the bar area for those who cannot sit indefinitely on hard chairs, for either medical or age related reasons - this is just a suggestion not a criticism.

Overall a wonderful day in a beautiful location.

Room Tip: Everyone who attended this wedding said the rooms were special.

I'm writing this review from the view of a company who spent a very long time here working on a serious project. During our entire tenure (+2 months) the staff were absolutely brilliant, totally helpful and willing to work with all of our crazy requests for projectors, conference phones, etc. The lunches were always really nice, all the various conference rooms we used and facilities clean and well kept. The bar staff were welcoming and patient, and it has become a place we like to return to patronize. I think the key is the staff, they are a wonderful group of people.

My husband and I have just celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversary and having got married at Tewin decided to take advantage of the R&R Sunday offer(from which we have just returned). The service from ALL of the staff (be it reception to waiting staff) was superb! Nothing was too much trouble and we could not have asked for more pleasant, helpful and friendly staff. A three course Sunday lunch was included in the package and we both ordered different meals from the set menus and every course was fantastic. The room was beautiful and the breakfast (which was self service, also included) was outstanding and you could eat as much as you liked. Our stay reminded us of our wonderful wedding day and we will defiantly take advantage of the R&R Sunday again as it was such fantastic value for money!
