The food was outstanding and the room was spotless
Hi there Just a quick note to say thanks so much for a lovely stay on Sunday night. Apologies I meant to send something earlier!! We wanted to take advantage of the dine and stay experience because we thought we might not get another chance before our wedding, and on our big day we probably wouldn't have time to relax and enjoy it. I remember Martha saying on our tour the importance of taking time out to enjoy the venue and spend time together on our wedding day. For us, this gave us time to relax and enjoy the surroundings before it's filled with 80 noisy guests (hopefully) !!! The food was outstanding and the room was spotless- with a lovely note and brownies included of course! All of the staff were lovely and made us feel totally relaxed and pampered for the evening. Thank you- we cant wait to get married at Coombe Lodge (especially if the brownies and chocolate fondants keep coming!). Take care Kayleigh and Nick

It was an amazing experience.
To The Coombe Lodge staff, This is just a massive Thankyou to Martha, Tom and the rest of the staff, it was so nice to come back last night as guests, and to have a chat with you, it was an amazing experience. The food was quite literally incredible, although I didn’t expect anything less because i know how good it was at our wedding. Even with all what has been going on, its wonderful to see your standards have stayed at the highest. All the staff were really great and very professional. We hope we have the opportunity to do it again sometime, however we know that this would of meant that the current crisis has not changed, so we hope its as a guest at a wedding. Although if the opportunity did come up again, we would 100000000% get booked in!!! Especially as a nice local getaway without our new arrival haha. We hope you all personally stay safe during Covid and we hope that as a business Coombe Lodge does too. Thankyou again for a wondering afternoon/evening/morning . Warmest Regards Dexter and Charlotte Neil

Thank you for hosting our amazing wedding!
"To Martha, Tom and the rest of the Coombe Lodge Team, We would like to say a massive thank you for hosting our amazing wedding! We had a wonderful day and you made sure that everything was perfect. You made it so special. (It felt like a normal wedding and you didn’t let Covid get in the way). From our point of view we would definitely encourage any bride and grooms to go with the 30 guest wedding whenever that will return. The day was so relaxed and all of our guests had the best day! Martha you were fabulous, from the day we booked right through until we left on Thursday, you were so supportive and nothing was ever too much! Thank you Martha xx Tom thank you for always being on the end of the phone to answer our questions and making everything possible, you made everything so easy when it should have been so difficult. Thank you so much! xx We would love to join you again for one of your Dine and Stay weekends. Hopefully see you again soon Xxx "

I just wanted to extend our gratitude...
"My partner James and I stayed at Coombe lodge last Friday and I just wanted to extend our gratitude to all the staff for giving us a lovely evening. Our wedding has sadly been postponed due to the pandemic and our disappointment has been rectified to a great degree by the opportunity to stay and enjoy the venue this weekend. We felt so lucky to be given this chance and we’re both very pleased by the excellent and attentive service from all the staff throughout our stay. We feel that we have been given the chance to connect more with the venue and are now even more excited for the big day! Thank you and we look forward to seeing you all again soon!"

We just wanted to say a huge huge thank you...
"Tom, Martha & The team - Firstly, I'm so sorry we haven't been in touch sooner, I can't believe a whole month has passed since our wedding day already, to be honest it's been an absolute whirlwind and we're still on a high from our incredible day! We just wanted to say a huge huge thank you to Tom & Martha who together managed to not only keep us sane beforehand but worked so hard to make our day better than we could have possibly imagined. From the crushing moment it was announced that weddings were banned back in March, to receptions being delayed with just 2 weeks to go, you have been a constant source of support, reassurance and patience for us and continually went above and beyond to help put our minds at ease during what was an intensely stressful time. On the day itself, my husband (still not used to saying that!) and I were absolutely blown away. Whilst we obviously couldn't have the wedding we had planned, what we did have far exceeded any expectations we had and that is without a doubt thanks to the incredible team at Coombe Lodge. Of course, it goes without saying that the house itself and stunning grounds are the main reason we wanted to get married here, but aside from that we were astounded by the incredibly attentive and helpful staff and truly exceptional food. So, although getting married during a pandemic comes with its own sacrifices, we can honestly say you gave us such a special wedding day that nothing felt like we'd compromised and all of our guests were stunned. We are so grateful and can't wait to come back! xx"

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We have loved every single wedding we have hosted at Coombe Lodge. We love that every wedding is different and so personal to the couple themselves, plus it is great for wedding inspiration!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Relax and enjoy it! We are here to take all the stress out of the wedding planning and to help put the fun in.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

It's the personal details that make each and every wedding so memorable. One of my favourites was when the Bride got her Year 2 class to write what they thought Married life & Weddings meant. Their responses were priceless, my personal favourites had to be - "A Wedding should have shiny spoons" (Marlon - Aged 7) & "A good husband is someone who makes a cup of tea for his wife" (Logan - Age 7). Adorable!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Magical, Immaculate, Welcoming, Luxurious, Stunning

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

You can't beat our sunset shots here at Coombe Lodge. With the Somerset hills as your backdrop it really is a photo that will take your breath away. Speaking honestly however, Coombe Lodge really is a photographers paradise. With our 20 acres of exclusive gardens, with our fairy lit archway and walled gardens your photo album will be full. Whether you are looking for a Spring, Summer, Autumnal or Winter wedding our venue will have everything for you.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Guests have included Joan Collins & Maisie Williams.

What’s your favourite canapé?

This is such a hard choice - they are all delicious. But if I did have to choose then it would be "Seared sirloin with capers and parmesan" and also 'sesame halloumi with chilli jam' which is a really great vegetarian option.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Chocolate! Always. Our chefs really do make the best chocolate brownie! We agree this is a bold claim so we will make sure to let you try it when you come and visit.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Overall, we feel Coombe Lodge has the complete package! Its true beauty and romance can only be exceeded by the dedicated team that continues to build upon the values and goals in making Coombe Lodge an even better place then it already is. Our reputation has been built upon great service, outstanding food, drink and attention to detail, so that our couple’s will have nothing but wonderful memories of their special day at Coombe Lodge. We truly feel that what Coombe Lodge has to offer is unique and simply stands out from the crowd.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

The team! They are amazing, and will go above and beyond for our Brides and Grooms. The level of service they provide is second to none.
