From the moment we arrived at the Bentley Brook Inn for our first viewing, we absolutely fell in love with it! It is absolutely beautiful, with stunning views across the Peak District and gorgeous indoor spaces, and we knew immediately that it would be perfect for our day. Aside from the views though, what really makes this an incredibly special venue is the people there. Wendy and the whole team are absolute miracle workers and the nicest, most down-to-earth, hardworking people you will ever meet - nothing was too much trouble and their first priority was always ensuring that we got the wedding of our dreams. Every single person was beyond friendly, helpful, and genuinely excited to help us with the wedding, which made planning an absolute breeze! We were incredibly lucky with the weather and were able to have the outdoors ceremony of our dreams - walking down the aisle to my husband under that archway with the Peak District behind him is a memory I'll cherish forever. We were able to decorate the entire space exactly how we wanted, making our wedding very reflective of us as a couple. The food was absolutely incredible and plentiful - everyone was really impressed with the quality as well as the portion sizes! The DJ was beyond brilliant, and kept the dance floor completely packed for the entire evening. We really could not have asked for anything more, and we are so delighted that we got to celebrate our wedding in such a special, beautiful venue. Thank you so much to Wendy and the entire team at the Bentley Brook Inn - you're all absolute stars!

The awards received are well deserved.
Excellent! Our daughter's wedding reception could not have been better. Wendy does not leave any stone unturned, the attention to detail right from the initial meeting was spot on and nothing was too much trouble. On the day itself everything arranged was first class, great food served by attentive and polite staff. The whole day was overseen throughout by Wendy and her husband who were always on hand if required. A very professional team. Many of our guests also went out of their way to comment to us being very complimentary about the organisation, location, accommodation and food. All in all a superbly arranged, undertaken and successful day, we would have no hesitation in highly recommending the Bentley Brook as a wedding venue. The awards received are well deserved. Many thanks Wendy.

I cannot praise this place enough
I cannot praise this place was our daughters wedding. The reception was held here and everything was first class. The staff were so attentive, food fantastic and hot, organisation of the whole day from arrival at 7am yesterday to departure today was absolutely spot on. All the staff were happy and pleased to help, the housemaids were friendly and accommodating. Everyone went that step further to make this a perfect day to remember. I am a critic and can often find something to niggle about but I honestly can’t fault this place. Well done and thank you.

elegant and picturesque
We just wanted to express a huge Thank You to you all for the most perfect day you gave us. From the very early stages of planning to the very end of our wedding night , it was exactly what we wanted and couldn't have wished for anything better. The whole team are extremely caring, friendly and welcoming with nothing being too much trouble. We chose The Bentley Brook Inn for many reasons, but the main reason was because it fit us perfectly. It gives you the relaxed, laid back day which we wanted whilst being elegant and picturesque. We loved how we could personalise every aspect right down to the chocolates we put in the rooms for guests. You mad us all feel very welcome and I know that all of our family and friends have said how much they loved our day and that the venue was perfect for us as a couple. We are forever telling people about you guys and we look forward to being able to visit for years to come, to reminisce on our special day & celebrate other occasions too. Big Thank you to you all once again and we wish you every success because you deserve it.

Wendy and her team took all of that stress away
Our wedding was held at The Bentley Brook Inn on 18th August 2017. It was the first venue that we viewed and we fell in love with the place as soon as we pulled up in the car park and we are so happy that we chose this venue for our wedding. We received a first class experience from the day we met Wendy, Joe and their team right up until the day after our wedding. My husband and I live in Edinburgh so organising a wedding 300 miles away could have been extremely stressful but Wendy and her team took all of that stress away and were there to help and advise us every step of the way. Our family and friends began to arrive a few days before the wedding and we were all made to feel extremely welcome. Everyone was delighted by the standard of the rooms and food/ drink at the Bentley Brook Inn during their stay. The wedding day was amazing. A truly beautiful setting and we got extremely lucky with the weather which allowed us to have our ceremony in the wonderful wedding garden. The function room was perfect and I was able to decorate it to my own taste which I really enjoyed with my bridal party!! Every guest commented on the excellent quality of the food and drink (we opted for the luxury carvery buffet and were not disappointed!) and so many said it was some of the best wedding food they had ever had. We had great fun along with the evening guests on our hired ‘bucking bronco’ I’m sure Wendy and Joe thought we were mad for arranging this but allowed us to have the freedom to choose some entertainment for our guests that was personal to us. The DJ was great and kept everyone on the dance floor all night long. Everyone was so sad to leave the following day but their lovely breakfast at Bentley Brook certainly cheered them up and helped to ease any sore heads! Some of us were lucky enough to stick around to enjoy a few drinks the following day and enjoy the international toe wrestling championships held on 19th August, what a brilliant day we had! We had a hilarious time watching and taking part, great fun!! We were so sad to leave after such a fab weekend. I really can’t recommend The Bentley Brook Inn enough. Wendy and Joe are some of the kindest, most hardworking and genuine people we have ever met. Their fantastic team of staff are also a credit to them. So friendly, helpful and welcoming!! Our wedding would not have been the same without them. We are very much looking forward to returning to the Bentley Brook Inn in the future. Thank you so much!!

One of the most memorable was a couple who threw tradition to the wind. The bride chose vibrant colours with querky table decorations, flowers and favors.
