A romantic oasis
We got married here in September 2023, and I couldn't have wished for a better place. The team were so supportive of anything we wanted. We wanted a Hindu-style ceremony and prayer, and the team just went with it! I can't say thank Coltsfoot enough. We had around 60 guests, and it felt like a large family gathering. Guests loved the food and the accommodations are 5 stars.

Everything was so relaxed and well planned, the day went without a hitch! We were lucky enough to have Emma, Ruth and Niamh running the day for us, without them I would have been nervous and anxious but they bug us at ease and everything run smoothly. They are true pros. The venue was set up by Ruth and Niamh and was exactly how I envisioned it, perfection! Emma was in charge of the evening and kept everything running smoothly. I cannot thank them enough.

Coltsfoot Barn is simply stunning as a wedding venue. Beautiful gardens combined with a charming barn make a sensational setting for a wedding. This aside, the staff are incredibly helpful and do their level best to curb any anxiety. They seem to have the whole thing down to a fine art. They have thought of everything down to the grand piano, which is a beautiful looking antique but actually very cleverly houses a state-of-the-art electronic keyboard, which sounds better than most old pianos.

Unique place in a glorious setting
Throughout the planning, the team couldn’t have been more lovely, accommodating or helpful. The barn is rustic, original and very tastefully presented - the gardens are wonderful too.We had so many glowing comments from our guests about the venue, staff and food and we are so pleased that we were able to hold our wedding day there. It really is a very special, unique place in a glorious setting and I would highly recommend it to anyone planning their wedding.

Beautiful wedding day
I photographed Abbey and Charlies beautiful wedding day at Coltsfoot Country Retreat. I can highly recommended it, and look out for the great Llama farm at the back of the barn! Pretty unique to find a wedding venue with Llamas on site. The aesthetic of the barn is really great and makes for excellent photos. All the staff are very friendly and go over and beyond!
