Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Hannah
Thank you for looking at Ivy House Country Hotel. I'm so pleased we caught your eye. I would love to show you around the venue in person and am available for viewings most evenings and weekends. There's nothing like getting a feel for a venue in person, photos never do us justice (so I'm told). I can't wait to hear from you.

As soon as I and my husband saw the Crooked Barn we fell in love with this venue. The grounds were stunning and the Hall was also lovely and a good size for our reception. Hannah was really helpful and quick to respond on emails, we were then introduced to Angie a week or so before as she would be with us on the day. Angie was also extremely helpful and friendly and helped our day flow. Keith was so accommodating with our wedding breakfast, the taster was incredible as was the food on the day. Was also a nice touch that Keith checked in with us on our special day just to make sure the food was all okay, and it was delicious! No complaints from any of our guests, they have been raving about it still. We really did have the best day and wish we could do it all over again. Thank you to all of the staff who were there on the day and to Hannah, Keith & Angie who helped with the lead up to and the day of. It is a stunning venue, amazing food, helpful staff, you can't go wrong!

The organisation was second to none
Just wanted to say a massive thank you from myself and my husband for the most magical wedding day, it truly was everything we'd been dreaming of and more! We always knew Ivy House Country Hotel would be the venue we'd get married in as it has everything we needed for our 'wedding day vision' but never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined just how wonderful it would actually be. All of our beautiful family and friends haven't stopped talking about how stunning the venue was and how amazing the food was, in particular the salmon and steak! The organisation and communication were second to none, being a control freak I really struggled to hand over responsibility, but a massive thank you to Angela for putting me at ease the whole day, everything went so smoothly and she made sure to check we were ok and happy throughout the whole day, nothing was too much for her or the team. The day itself just went so smoothly and we were just so happy with everything, great food, lots of booze and dancing and just overall a super special day. Thank you so much for allowing us to use your stunning venue for our big day. I could go on forever about how absolutely amazing you all are and how our day was everything and more. Just thank you so much for the best day of our lives, we are extremely grateful to you all. THANK YOU ❤️

Nothing Was To Much Trouble & They Made Sure We Had Constant Reassurance On The Build Up To Our Big Day. Even On The Morning Of The Wedding Angie Conducted It All Perfectly So Everything Ran On Time. She Is Honestly An Absolute Angel! We Couldn't Have Asked For Any More! We're Sad That It's All Over, But We're So Happy We Chose To Make The Most Precious Memories Of Our Wedding Day At Ivy House.

The food is delicious
We had the ceremony in the Barn which is utterly beautiful, Photos took place in the grounds which are equally as beautiful. The reception was held in the hall, the room is stunning, with beautiful fairy lights within the ceiling which really creates a beautiful romantic atmosphere. The staff were amazing, so helpful and accommodating going out of their way to help me and guide us through the day. I would highly recommend the Ivy House Hotel, the venue is beautiful, the food is delicious and the staff were amazing

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

I've witnessed some great weddings, do I have to choose just one? It would be my first wedding working in my role as wedding coordinator, we hosted a grand wedding with over 140 guests and a high tea to rival the Ritz!

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

When it comes to venue hunting don't be afraid to ask for something if it's not being offered. When it comes to food in particular a lot of venues will be happy to accommodate your special requests.

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

We had a father of the bride organise some surprise singing waiters and they went down a storm.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Romantic, picturesque, quiet, affordable, special

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

The summerhouse overlooking the water is my favourite photo spot. I've seen it dressed up with fairy lights and it looks magical at night.

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

We haven't yet!

What’s your favourite canapé?

My favourite would have to be the honey mustard sausage and mash

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

You can't beat a salty bacon roll to soak up all of the alcohol

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Our 18th original barn filled with natural light, you don't expect one of those in most hotels!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

I'm most proud of our service, unlike a big chain, we're a small independent business that treats every wedding like it's our first and last.
