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'd love to show you round 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.

Intimately perfect!
Our day couldn’t have been any more perfect. Angie, Hannah and the team did an amazing job, the food, room set up, service and attention to detail were outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble. We only had a small intimate ceremony for 20 guests followed by afternoon tea. All guests commented on how lovely the food was, very tasty with a great selection and beautifully presented. The barn is a fairytale setting and suited our needs perfectly, the grounds are lovely and provide many lovely spots for photos. Couldn’t have wished for anything more.

The best day!
We had a look at a few venues before we found ivy house, We loved that you could get married in the barn and then walk down to the hall for wedding breakfast and evening reception. There wasn’t any of the faffing around waiting for things to be moved around. From start to finish we had such a great experience with planning our wedding at the ivy house. The lead up to the wedding, I felt like everything was in hand and I didn’t have to worry about anything to do with the venue Hannah was always around to answer our questions. She played a massive part leading up to our big day and helped us massively. Angela who was there to help us on the day ensure everything ran smoothly was amazing. Nothing was a big ask and the day went amazingly. I can not explain how much we all appreciated having her there. The day ran so seamlessly and honestly I couldn’t have asked for anything to go better, the food was lovely! Everyone commented on how nice it was and we had the hog roast which I would 100% recommend. We had no stressing and booked out the rooms which our friends and family stayed in. The staff were all lovely and very helpful and the bar was quick! No one likes to wait around too long for a drink.

Wedding bliss
The whole planning process was completely hassle free with brilliant communication from our wedding planner Hannah. She was so calm, lovely and patient with us with every question and query we ever had. The reception were brilliant with requests and enquiries from all of our family and friends and everyone commented on the cleanliness and size of the rooms during their stay. The grounds were lovely and the perfect setting for our big day. The barn is beautiful and a perfect setting for a ceremo

The most amazing day!
We can’t even begin to put the day into words apart from it was everything we imagined and better. Throughout the whole process The Ivy was amazing. Hannah was so clear and organised with our regular meetings and listened to our vision for the day. Keith was incredible on the lead up and answered any questions we had with food and was on hand in the days leading up to our wedding. Angela coordinated our day - our favourite part was when we was greeted us with a very needed drink straightaway our ceremony. She took the stress out of the day and told us exactly what we needed to know and when. Again, she listened to our vision and delivered it! Thank you so much. If we had any advice to recently engaged couples it’s get married here. It’s so beautiful and you won’t regret it.

Easy and happy
Booked an appointment to view with Hannah. She didn’t pressure us like some venues did, she was sweet and listened to everything we had in mind and made us feel very relaxed with booking and knowing our day would be prefect.

Amazing team
What an amazing day. Marrying my soulmate was always going to be magical but the team at Ivy house took it to a whole new level. From the first moment we had a chat with Hannah we knew we had found the perfect place. On every visit the team were incredible. Special mention to Angela who on the day didn’t let us worry about anything. Even till the last few dances of the evening when we were joined by the staff to the best version of single ladies ever the team were amazing. Cannot recommend Ivy house enough.
