The house and grounds are simply amazing
I had the good fortune to be invited to a friend's wedding recently and we had the full run of Knowle Manor and it's expansive Eden like beautiful grounds for the entire weekend. That being said we were faced with a 5 hour journey WITHOUT traffic just to get there, BUT......it was worth every single 50/30/50/30/50mph average speed camera mile (seriously how long is this nonsense going to carry on?!? - highway peoples please sort this out with immediate effect!) The house and grounds are simply amazing and they are wonderfully maintained. As you can see from my masterful photo's, the weather was fantastic (especially for October) which just added to the experience as everyone basked in the sun quaffing champagne and prosecco (not in the same glass, we aren't monsters) The facilities are second to none and the indoor pool is big enough to drown yours/someone elses kids in (joking, well at the beginning of the weekend) Anyway, I'm getting hungry and I feel the need to feed, so book a wedding here and you will not be disappointed. Domino's AHOY!

Ruth & the rest of the team at Knowle were amazing
I'm not sure 5* does Knowle Manor the credit it deserves!!! We have just had our wedding here on the 30th September and it was the most perfect weekend. The pictures on the website and on here don't do it justice as to how spectacular the house really is!! All our family and friends have all said that they want to return for another get together. Ruth and the rest of the team at Knowle were amazing, from the first time I contacted them to the minute we left nothing was too much for them, they were on hand every step of the way to answer questions or to help with anything you needed, they helped make our wedding weekend the most amazing time and one that no one will forget. We will be returning in the near future.
