We had an amazing wedding day, both myself and my husband loved every minute and a lot of it was down to the venue, we were also very lucky with the weather. Horetown House is an amazing venue and it was great that we had the entire house exclusively for the weekend, it really felt like home. First of all I would like to start with the food, it was really really good and we have heard nothing but amazing comments from our friends and family. Having nice food was very important to us, and was one of the reasons we chose Horetown House, we were not disappointed! The chef was great, and had no problem with taking our favorite ingredients and creating delicious dishes. Secondly, Kate was great in that she just took over the colour scheme and provided the flowers for the centre pieces and for the rooms throughout the house, one less thing that we had to worry about. Thirdly, the day after the wedding we had a BBQ and again we have to say the food was amazing, everyone is still talking about it, especially the desert!!
Horetown accommodated us as much as they could in terms of how we wanted to have the band and dj set up and it created such a relaxed atmosphere for everyone. I would like to say a special thanks to Tom who was great, he stayed up until the early hours of both mornings and kept the bar open and always had a smile on his face, everyone loved him!
I did have a bit of an issue with the price of the bedrooms but I can see why they are charged at the rate they are, they are really luxurious and I can honestly say that the sheets are some of the nicest I have ever slept on and the rooms are so luxurious. But I can understand why it would put people off and it very nearly did put us off, but I am really glad it didn’t.
Just a small point but it would have been nice to have a bottle of champagne waiting for the bride and her party when we arrived in the room to get ready. Thankfully my sisters were organized and had two bottles ready to pop.
Overall I would definitely recommend Horetown House as a wedding venue if food, atmosphere and beautiful surroundings are important to you.
