Most amazing wedding day
From start to finish we had the most amazing day a newly married couple could hope for. All staff did such a good job to ensure that we had a perfect day and that everything ran smoothly. The venue and surroundings are stunning and tick every box. We would defiantly recommend.

Truly can’t thank everyone enough
We got married at Cranberries Hideaway in September and it was wonderful!! Steve, Verity and the rest of the team were brilliant, so helpful getting us all organised and the day ran like clockwork. We had just over a hundred guests who all loved it and enjoyed themselves so much, it was a perfect day. Cranberries is an excellent venue for weddings, we loved the fact that a lot of our guests were able to stay in the beautiful rooms on offer which meant people could really relax and make the most of the whole weekend. Truly can’t thank everyone at Cranberries enough for making it the most wonderful day of our lives.

"A Weekend Away, A Wedding and Two Dogs"
This venue was an excellent choice for my friend’s wedding, The staff were friendly and helpful. The Romanian chef is friendly and a good laugh. The drinks were a fair price for a private hotel. The food was very well prepared and served. The staff did everything to accommodate the event. As a dog owner, I saved half the price of a two day stay by not putting the dogs in kennels and we were directed to two fields within the grounds that we could let them run. The room was equipped with every modern convenience clean and comfortable. This is a beautiful hotel complex with cottage type accommodation spread around. The views and walks are exceptional. Only 3/4 mile to a modern dinner and a local foody pub if you don't want to dine on the complex itself. I have heard of some moans but couldn't find a thing to main about, except having to leave. Even the dogs wanted to stay and they are fussy.

What can I say... It was perfect!
What can I say... It was perfect! Verity was excellent throughout, she made sure we were happy and that we had everything we needed. Food was excellent! All the guests agreed. Drinks were reasonable, staff were friendly and helpful, it was clean etc. The honeymoon suite is amazing. It's very laid back but that's a good thing. Perfect!

I recently got married at Cranberries and can honestly say the day could not have been any more perfect. The staff all worked so hard to make sure that the day was amazing for us and it was. To start, the set up was great, all hands on ready to help and suggest any helpful ideas to make things look even better.The rooms were incredible, we ended up using all the rooms in the complex and our family and friends were over the moon with the facilities, nice clean, spacious rooms, comfy beds with amazing views. On the day everyone was directed to the correct areas, the bar was open in plenty of time for guests to have drinks (which were very reasonably priced) and the set up outside looked incredible. The staff made sure the registrar new exactly where we all were and that there was no stress before the wedding, The whole day ran smoothly the food was fabulous, we couldn't fault a thing, it was delicious and came out quickly with compliments all around from our guests. Everything was cleared quickly and staff were around to help the band set up and prep for the evening guests where we danced the night away. Anyone looking at Cranberries for a weekend away or an event I would strongly recommend, I have stayed here several times and each time it has been noting but exceptional and I can't wait to head back and use the facilities again.
