    Thornton Manor is a fabulous venue for a wedding. From the moment we stepped foot inside Thornton Manor we knew we wanted to get married there. The grounds are stunning and the inside breathtaking. The staff were a credit to Thornton Manor and made sure ourselves and our guests wanted for nothing, they couldn't have been more friendly. We and many of our guests stayed in the accommodation which could not be faulted (some reviews mention not having locks on the doors, you just have to ask for a key if you want one, we however felt we didn't need one as it is like one big family and we trusted everyone). The rooms are each decorated in keeping with the manor house and are extremely inviting and well kept. The music room was amazing and set the perfect drop back for our wedding reception. We really cannot thank Thornton Manor enough for making our wedding day so perfect, I dont know of any one of our guests who had anything but praise to say about Thornton Manor.

    I cannot say enough about the 'magical' Thornton Manor. We held our wedding here in December 2009, and the venue and staff were a massive factor in making it the most magical day we've ever had. The homeliness of the venue and attentiveness of the staff were simply out of this world, with the fantastic Philip and Dianne always being willing to help in the lead up to the big day. The staff took care of our every need, as well as the guest's every need, from taxiing people about, to ensuring guests were met in their cars on arrival. Many of 'the little things' that you just wouldn't expect, were taken care of without batting an eye lid. The venue itself is stunning, and incredibly warm and cosy, which gives it a great homely feel at xmas, along with the open fires and gorgeous decorations. I can't imagine anywhere else in the world being such a perfect choice for an xmas wedding. Simply fantastic and magical, and we will remember our day (and probably nip back to bug Philip and Dianne a few more times!!!) forever. Thank you so much to all the staff, simply fantastic.

    We paid £95 for a "servant's quarter" room with private bath, no food. It was spartan, bare floorboards, old-fashioned bathroom down a corridor - and NOT marked as private so couldn't leave anything in it. No kettle or anything except jug of water. It would definitely have been worth staying elsewhere and using a taxi to get to/from wedding reception.

    We live in Australia but planned to marry in England as I am from Liverpool originally. Because we had 20+ Australian guests coming over we wanted a venue that required very little preparation from me - as I was on the other side of the world - and was classical and very 'English'. Thornton Manor had it all.
    As soon as we were met by Dianne at the Manow we felt at ease. I knew that we were in very capable hands. All my questions, however small, were addressed and I felt that our big wedding was in very good hands.
    The venue speaks for itself and needed little more than a few flowers to decorate. The staff were very patient and kind (especially Hannah and the night staff....thanks). The rooms were spectacular and worked well for us as we had big groups of friends who could all stay in the same annexe or cottage.
    We had an amazing day and I will always remember leaving the following morning with Di and Phil waving us goodbye at the grand front door.
    You only get one wedding day and we are delighted we chose such a fantastic venue for ours.

    If you want the perfect wedding, then Thornton Manor will help you to realise this dream. From the moment we arrived to view the venue, we knew immediately that this was the place we wanted to get married. We had guests flying in from across the world to join us who commented that this is a simply stunning location. Not only is it a beautiful venue, the staff go out of their way to make your special day a magical experience. We shared our wedding with my father's 64th birthday on 8th October and I have to say that it is a day that we wont ever forget.

    The attention to detail was fantastic and the day was seamless in terms of the co-ordination. All of the staff are a credit to Phillip and Dianne, the team worked so hard and this did not go un-noted by the guests.

    Thornton Manor has a certain charm to it, the house becomes your home for the day. With beds so comfy, caterers that provide food to tantalise your palate and staff on hand to help out day and night, we wouldn't have changed a single thing.

    We would definitely recommend this to any bride and groom - you will have the best day of your life

    The only down side about it was that we had to leave.
