Just a wonderful place to get married.
We found the whole experience fantastic from the initial booking to the day itself. The way they decorated the room for the wedding itself and the meal was just lovely. The staff were great before and during the day they made us feel very special. They carry out a lot of weddings and you can tell, their organisation skills is excellent. The food was excellent. The whole day was very relaxed. I cannot praise them enough. The only downside is that the day has now gone and I want to do it again. Although we do have lots of great memories thank to Abbey House.

We are so pleased with our choice to have our wedding at Abbey House. We love the location and our day was absolutely out of this world. Family and friends commented on how excellent the customer service was and how friendly the staff were. The whole day went so smoothly and we can't thank the staff enough, throughout the 14 months of planning they were there to answer all of our questions and to put our minds at ease, whether it be by email/phone/in person. Would recommend to anyone!
