Best team, so we'll looked after
Tracey and the team were so incredibly welcoming form our first visit. No job was too difficult for them. They made our day run so smoothly with no stress from us at all. The venue is just stunning and has the benefit of having onsite accommodation which suited us perfectly. The grounds are beautiful and the space was lovely. Tracey had great recommendations of vendors for us to use and really seemed to get excited making our day perfect for us. Really could not have asked for more!

it truly was the most amazing place.
We had our wedding at Country Ways in September and it truly was the most amazing place. From Thursday lunchtime we took over the entire place, the houses full with family and extended family and some campers on the fields too - it was like we created our own little village for four days with one massive party in the middle. If you want to get away from the wedding machine this really is the place to do it, there are few rules (the ones which are there make perfect sense) and you get to really make it your own and do you what you want. It's entirely do it yourself (with some helping hands on the day for serving etc) - but that's what makes it amazing. Every detail is yours to make or do and when your guests arrive they'll know it was your day. The view over the valley is really special, and if the sun makes an appearance it's only improved! Sue is so helpful helping to answer all our questions and give as much information as possible. And the helpers that we had on the day were amazing too. When you first visit Sue will give you a list of suppliers who have regularly worked at Country Ways, and from our experience [the ones we used] were brilliant. So happy to help and knew the venue better than us so that they could give us all the advice that we needed. If you're thinking of coming here for your wedding absolutely do it, you, your family and friends will have the best day.

we picked the best place possible to have our wedding.
We just wanted to pop you a message to say thank you so much for everything over the last few weeks and months. All our family and guests couldn't believe the place when they arrived, and the messages that we have had pouring in since have only cemented the fact that we picked the best place possible to have our wedding. Please pass my thanks on to Sophie and the team, they were all fantastic, and helped the day run smoother than I could have hoped it for.

Sue and all the staff at Countryways were phenomenal at helping and being available
Could not be more thrilled with how the weekend went for my mum and step dad's wedding - we had all the family and friends staying on site which was fantastic, and the same location for everything meant people didn't have to drive or travel once arriving. The weather was (luckily) in our favour and the kids and adults alike all had an absolute blast; particularly with the gardens, hot tub in one cottage and farm animal feeding in the mornings. All the cottages were well equipped, warm and comfortable, and the overall facilities and location absolutely stunning for a wedding event. Sue and all the staff at Countryways were phenomenal at helping and being available, and hopefully they also enjoyed the weekend as much as we did. A weekend to remember, would love to return in future and couldn't recommend more.
