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.

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

Our perfect happy ever after
From start to finish it was perfect, Hannah was an amazing wedding coordinator who helped us customise our wedding to suit our every need. Leah and team were amazing on the day, making sure we were comfortable and happy throughout. The venue is stunning inside and out, we didn't have the weather on our side but the building and grounds are so beautiful it didn't matter. Everyone has said how beautiful it all was, from the food, to the location. We had the most relaxed, beautiful, funniest wedding and I would do it all again in a heartbeat. Simply perfect.

Wedding
We had our wedding at Ivy House on 10/12/21 and it was everything we wanted. We had a small intimate wedding, both the ceremony and meal in the crooked barn. It was absolutely magical with the Christmas decorations and lights. The food was amazing, the staff so friendly and helpful and it was perfect in every way. We then stayed in the honeymoon suite and had breakfast the next morning. Highly recommend for every reason. Happy Christmas!

FAQ
(10)

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.
