A dream venue!
We cannot thank Emma and her family enough for helping us to have the most perfect wedding day! From the moment we first met I could tell that Emma would go above and beyond for us to make sure we had a very special, stress free day which is exactly what happened. The venue speaks for itself, it’s so beautiful, peaceful and intimate. If we did it all again we would only ever choose Badgers Holt.
Response from the venue
Thank you so much for such a lovely review - we may have been working but we loved every minute of it ... and if you want to do again there are always anniversary celebrations. Our very lovely friends just had their 30th celebration and she even wore her Wedding dress for a short time! Wishing you a very very happy life together xxx

Our Wedding at Badgers Holt was incredible
From the moment we arrived at badgers holt the day before our wedding Emma and Simon welcomed in and we felt like family. The bridal room was so beautiful with a freestanding bath, the most amazing floor and best of all a lovely view of the river. Our wedding at badgers holt was incredible, the venue was beautiful, Simon and Emma were always there to support us which meant our day flowed and ran very smoothly. Emma and Simon did so much for us during our stay with Simon even lending the groom his cuff links for the big day. Emma was very helpful and helped us decide the order of the day and table lay out. The Badgers holt team could not of done more for us and really made the day special!

Emma and Simon went above and beyond with the most amazing hospitality and relaxed approach but one which was so attentive
A week ago today I married my best friend and sole mate at Badgers Holt and had the most perfect day. After searching for wedding venues I came across this venue and knew the location so started to get excited. On speaking to Emma I knew I needed to wait for restrictions to change so we could view the venue and as I thought it was perfect. Emma’s attention to detail, reassurance and help was amazing and nothing was too much from day one- we managed to book our photographer through Emma and had the florist we were hoping for all from attending the open event. Every time I spoke or heard from Emma I felt relaxed and looked after. ​ The day arrived and wow I was blown away with all the little touches and surprises and immediately felt like a queen. Emma and Bez went above and beyond with the most amazing hospitality and relaxed approach but one which was so attentive. My guests, family and friends have all shared stories of how amazing not only the day was but the venue and owners and I agree and am still in the most perfect bubble ever. The food also was amazing and everything I could ask for and we was so well looked after in so many ways you would not believe. My perfect day was made a reality and I’m so grateful and will be enjoying the venue for many more years to come. I can not recommend them enough and Emma and Bez thank you from the bottom of my heart
