What a venue!
We got married at Chapel House Estate in November and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day! Everyone was so incredibly kind and helpful and went the extra mile to ensure everything ran smoothly. All of our guests commented on how amazing the venue was and for our family to be able to stay on site with an incredible breakfast the following morning was really special. The food was so good and we went back on our month anniversary in December to the restaurant to celebrate - this will probably become a much loved tradition. Thank you to Georgia, Jade and the team for giving us the most perfect day! Jess & Rob

Chapel House is the Best
Chapel House Estate is amazing, overall amazing team and a lush venue. I was not disappointed; it just so happened I had the storm on my wedding day, however the team constantly reassured me the day would be amazing which it absolutely was. I cannot express how amazing the day was my guests cannot stop speaking about how amazing the venue and staff were.
Response from the venue
Thank you for your lovely review! We're thrilled that you chose Chapel House for your special day, it was truly an unforgettable experience and proved that no kind of weather can ruined anything! Our favourite part was our head chef, Kieran, assisting with umbrella holding for your gorgeous bridemaids! Your appreciation means the world to us, and we can't wait to welcome you back for your one-year anniversary at No.9 Restaurant! xx

A venue that has it all...
The reason we chose Chapel House was because of how accommodating it was, we were looking for a venue that had everything, no need to change venue half way through the day, and be able to over accommodation to our nearest was the bonus we were looking for. If you're looking for a venue that has it all... this is it!! We couldn't have been happier with the service or how our day went. It was truly perfect. Thank you Jade, Georgia and all the team for making our planning and day run so smoothly!
