Our wedding truly was the best day ever, which would not have been possible without the great Cranford Team. Anyone can see that Cranford is a beautiful venue but I have to say that what makes Cranford great is its team. I am so thankful to Claire, Sam, Joe and the rest of the Cranford team for making our day... More

We visited 58 wedding venues, and although some were beautiful, the affordability for our guests, or the people involved, or the layout of the facility was not good enough. From the moment we drove up the beautiful lane and into Cranford Country Lodge, we both knew that this was definitely the place. We stayed the night surrounded by Appaloosa horses... More

We had our dream wedding at Cranford on the 29th of August in the new Great Room. The new room is beautiful and we decided to get married in the garden.

Cranford was the first wedding venue that we visited in the Midlands area. We immediately liked the surroundings and the fact that a large contingent of our families could be accommodated onsite. All the family were hustling together from USA, Australia, New Zealand and the UK. A strong selling point and very reasonable wedding package had us sold! Alex and... More
