The most incredible wedding venue
We honestly could not recommend this venue enough. We had our wedding here in June and it was the most incredible day. The venue itself is gorgeous with so many different areas, and elements to this venue - from the lawn to the court yard, court house, fields and the barn. We got married on the lawn with sea views and it was simply stunning. we loved the personal touch of the venue and being able to stay with our family for the whole weekend. The house is gorgeous and you are made to feel so at home with breakfast cooked (10/10 food btw) each morning. we cannot thank Andrew and Simon enough. They are a pleasure to work with and made our whole experience stress free. Everything we needed they were happy to do and nothing was any trouble. We are so thankful to you guys for helping to make our day perfect, the build up completely stress free and allow us to completely relax on the day. You welcomed our family and were so kind and patient. Everyone at our wedding not only said how incredible the venue was but actually how lovely the staff were which I think says everything. Gemma was so so welcoming to our family as well and helped to look after my friends baby during the ceremony and was just incredible the whole weekend. Thank you all so so much! Lots of love Clare and Gareth xx

Sensational Hillmount House!!
The first time we saw Hillmount House, we knew instantly that we wanted to get married there. The gorgeous grounds include a beautiful meadow filled with wild flowers and also has a beautiful outside wedding option that has sea views. We opted for our ceremony to be in the stunning barn, which also over looks the sea. The venue offers a beautiful contrast between new and old, with the edition of the New Barn. Which is where we had our reception! Simon, Andrew and their team were absolutely fantastic and made our day perfect! This was not a surprise to us, as in the two years working with them prior to our wedding, they were absolutely amazing - no request was too much and they left no stone unturned. We also want to thank Andrew and Simon for being so welcoming, and allowed us to stay in their beautiful home. From the breakfast they provided for us, the amazing decor and the homely atmosphere, everything was perfect! One of the most important criteria when picking a wedding venue for us, was for it to be dog friendly. Hillmount house not only welcomed our family and friend, but also our dog, Bramble
Response from the venue

Our wedding at Hillmount
Hillmount House provided us with everything we dreamed about for our wedding and more. It provides the most beautiful venue and that personal touch which makes Hillmount stand out from the rest. We can’t thank Simon, Andrew and all the staff enough for a wonderful weekend and for being so attentive during the whole planning process. The attention to detail on the day was second to none. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the Hillmount team meaning that we could just relax and enjoy our wedding knowing that everything was being taken care of behind the scenes. Our guests absolutely loved Hillmount and haven’t stopped talking about the venue since the wedding. Anyone who chooses to have their wedding or event at Hillmount is in the very best hands.
Response from the venue
