"Hi Angela, I just wanted to drop you a quick message before we set off on our Honeymoon tomorrow. We'd both like to say a big thank you for all your help in the months of lead up to our Wedding last Saturday. The day was perfect, and we couldn't have asked for anything to be better."

I don't even know where to begin. Our day was perfect from start to finish. All the staff were amazing, especially Sarah who handled our wedding from the beginning. She dealt with emails, helped us set up the day before, brought out flowers during the speech and made sure everything was going well. We wanted a relaxed and personal wedding and that is exactly what we got. The room looked beautiful and we loved the old feel of the rooms and the building which is full of history. We enjoyed the spa the next day after a very good breakfast. We can't wait to come again to stay, and we also got a voucher to stay for our 1st Anniversary which is a lovely touch. Thank you to all the staff for their hard work and attention to detail.
