Here are a few recent testimonials from some of our lovely brides and grooms:

“We wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team for making our wedding such a special day! We both had a fantastic day, it couldn’t have gone any better and many of our friends have commented that it’s the best wedding they’ve ever been to!

The Horn of Plenty looked brilliant, the food was even better than we hoped (thanks Scott!) and all the staff did a great job in making people feel welcome and relaxed. We obviously got lucky with the weather, but doing the speeches outside and being able to use the lawn for games and photos etc. made it the relaxed event we wanted it to be.

Thanks to you and Emma for your help planning all the fine details and making it all come together. We’ll definitely be back in the near future”

Hayley and Pete, June 2015


“We would just like to say a huge thank you again for everything you did to make our wedding day as special as it was.  We were made to feel welcome by everyone we met, from our very first meeting to the taster evening, right up until check out!

We had the most amazing day at The Horn of Plenty, and we will forever remember it! People still talk about the views, the food and the whole ambiance of the day.  We will definitely be back!”

Krystal and Ross, May 2015


“We wanted to thank you for all your amazing help, support and advice in the lead up to our wedding. Planning everything from Australia was a challenging prospect, but you made the whole process relaxed and easy – we couldn’t have done it without you!

We had a beautiful day and our guests have all complimented us on the gorgeous venue and delicious food.  You definitely deserve all of your awards!”

Rosie & Ian, March 2015


“We wanted to take the time to say thank you to all the staff for an absolutely amazing wedding day.  They all helped make our day so very special!

The food was absolutely amazing – Dan and I and all our guests enjoyed every aspect of it – it was tasty and beautifully presented.”

Helen & Dan, February 2015


“Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special from the very first meeting right up to the day itself. Your staff were superb and everyone was made to feel welcome. Thank you again.”

Pamela & Chris, December 2014


“We just wanted to say thank you for making our wedding so amazing and stress free! It was a fantastic day made simple by not having to worry about a thing as you and your team had thought of everything. We look forward to returning in the future for the food and to remember the magical day we had there!”

Sarah & Lee, November 2014


“Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day as fabulous as it was. Everyone has said what an amazing place you have and how wonderful and relaxed it all was, and that is all down to you and your wonderful staff.

Everything was just perfect and everyone is talking about how utterly divine the food was. We shall definitely see you again very soon. So so many thanks.”

Becky and Dean, September 2014



“I just wanted to let you know how very special you made Kay’s wedding last Saturday. Your attention to detail and lovely, bubbly nature made it so easy for us all. The surroundings, food and your team that looked after us really went the extra mile. Of course, your new rooms are just a delight!”

Kay’s Mum, September 2014


“From the moment we saw the venue and met you, we knew this was the place to hold our wedding and we were not disappointed. Everyone’s been commenting on what a wonderful day it was and how beautiful the venue is. The food was incredible and people are still talking about it.

Thank you also to you Julie. You helped the day go perfectly and made me feel very special and very calm too. Which helped me enjoy every second. Thank you, thank you, thank you. All our love.”

Nicola and Jason, May 2014


Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous. Accommodation wonderful, wedding organised and carried out to perfection. Setting beautiful. The only thing better than the food and the accommodation was the staff, an absolute credit and we cannot sing their praises loud enough.

You have made our day and our wedding. Thank you to all at your wonderful Country House Hotel!

Lynzi and Colin, March 2014


Thank you for making Charlotte’s and Andy’s wedding day so wonderful.

We have heard nothing but great praise from all the guests that attended about how fab the wedding was, and this was in no small part to the meticulousness of your work.

Clearly, the venue is stunning, albeit even more enhanced when the sun is shining:).

As far as I am concerned though what was even more stunning was the quality of service that you and your staff provided.  The day just seemed to whizz by and this was simply because I did not have to worry about a single thing and had a smile on my face all day long.

Because of the rain you imperceptibly changed the procedures from an outside to an indoor reception and juggled the changing seating and serving arrangements most expertly.

The food was outstanding and was a real highlight that everyone commented on: send our thanks to your kitchen staff and chef.

Your serving staff were fab: they could not do enough and I heard one even stayed beyond her finishing time because she was enjoying the wedding so much.

Having organised corporate functions myself at work I know that a completely seamless event is both very difficult to achieve and is sometimes not appreciated by those attending: be assured I have the greatest admiration for your efforts and that of your staff.

I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending you and your hotel: the accolades you have won are completely justified.

Keep up the good work and all the best for the future.
