The most stunning location, we could not fault it
We would like to thank you so much for such a perfect day. Merewood is the most stunning location and we could not fault it. Our Just Us wedding was just what we wanted; and Helen has been amazing from start to finish, always reassuring us during these difficult times and stressing that a small intimate wedding is just as important as a bigger event. All the staff were incredible, but we would like to make a special mention to thank Mikey who made our 8-course taster dinner extra special with his enthusiasm. This is a day we will never forget and we are already looking forward to when we can return in the future to celebrate our anniversaries to relive the whole experience.

A special venue run by the most wonderful people
Thank you so much for making our special day run so beautifully. The hard work of everyone was appreciated so much. We had the most wonderful time. We realise how lucky we were to have had our day given what’s happened over the last few weeks!  
Our guests loved your hotel as much as we did. They’ve all commented on how perfect everything was... all of them mentioned the fabulous staff and the outstanding food.  
Once again thank you all so much from the bottom of our hearts. We wish we could do it all again and couldn’t have wished for a more special venue that’s ran by the most wonderful people.

Best day of our lives
We got married at Merewood on 12/10/19, it was the best day of our lives. Communication in the run up to the wedding was first class. From the moment we walked in on Friday afternoon Helen, Lucy and the team looked after us, our family and friends like royalty for the full weekend. We had exclusive use of the house from Friday to Sunday, which was super special. The views from this venue are out of this world, it was like looking at a painting the morning of our wedding when I drew the curtains. We have received so many compliments from our guests about the amazing food, wonderful staff, spectacular views and charm of the house. It was the best decision we made booking Merewood, we just wish that we could do it all over again

Going way above and beyond
This is an email to say thank you very much for all of your help and support leading up to our big day and for all of your hard work on the day. Many of our guests have said that they've not been to such a well-run wedding! Also thank you for going way above and beyond - allowing our cat to stay (he's doing much better now) and for providing jump leads the next morning! We really appreciate everything that you did and it helped make our day really very special. Thank you again

A five star memorable weekend
Thank you so much for the 5-star service we received during our lovely wedding weekend. We had the most perfect day and wouldn’t want to change anything. Your caring, discreet service as well as the enthusiasm (particularly from Lucy!) to provide the best of everything was wonderful. We had a lovely time! Thank you again and we very much hope to come and stay again soon, if only to enjoy another of those afternoon teas. Please pass on our thanks to the rest of the hotel team who made the weekend so memorable

A special time made perfect
We had the best few days of our lives at Merewood this week. The food was outstanding, as was the customer service, staff were simply amazing - nothing was too much trouble. Otto, was fantastic on the day, he has lovely people skills and also photography skills. We are thrilled with the photos he took for us and we will be forever grateful. Our families were as expected, shocked and nobody had guessed. They've all said how happy they are for us for finally getting around to tying the knot and think what we did was definitely the best way to get married. They thought the Merewood looked beautiful and could see why we chose to marry there. I know I keep saying it, but we had a very special time made perfect from all of yours and other staffs help and attitude. We've never came across such amazing staff at a hotel and made to feel so welcome and special. We will definitely be back for our anniversary next year - but might manage an autumn break before that.
