Stirk House Hotel Full Description
At Stirk House we specialise in creating those perfect memories for your special day. We can accommodate for both small, intimate ceremonies with your nearest and dearest, to big luxurious parties, where we can seat 250 people for a sit down wedding breakfast. No matter how big or small your wedding is, the team are consistent in giving you the upmost attention and ensuring everything runs smoothly on the day. Our function suite is multi-purpose, meaning you can make the most of the space needed, whilst keeping certain areas closed off for a more intimate feel. The function suite has it's own bar, toilet facilities and a private lounge area, meaning you have certain areas that are exclusive for you. Our function suite has a late license - so there is no need to worry the party will end too early! And once the main event has finished, our lounge bar is open to all residents wanting a night cap. Our award winning team who have years of experience between them, are ready to assist with every detail tailored specially to you and your big day. We welcome any new ideas you may have - we pride ourselves on doing everything we can to make sure your vision comes to life. The wedding itself is not just limited to a one day experience. You will come in and meet with the wedding teams numerous times, from wedding fayres to private appointments, wedding tasting sessions and many of our couples like to come and stay over to experience what Stirk House has to offer before the big day. We have 33 bedrooms on site, and we are able to sleep between 85 - 90 people if all extra beds / sofa beds are used. Our Seasons restaurant is also open for you to come and try the exquisite food beforehand. It's also where you may dine the night before the wedding, and of course breakfast the day after, which is another great time for catching up with loved ones. We look forward to hearing from you and discussing all your exciting plans!

Our beautiful wedding
We got married in November at Stirk House having been planning for 12 months. The wedding team were one of the main reasons we chose Stirk (aside from it being a beautiful venue) as they could not do enough to make sure our day was extra special. Throughout the planning process the wedding team have been supporting, encouraging and beyond helpful with tips and tricks to make the planning easier and the day go smoother. On the day, all the staff at Stirk were happy and friendly to guests, making sure everyone was having a good time. There were no problems on the day, everything was organised to perfection, but I have no doubt that the team would have rushed to sort anything straight away.

Wedding Bliss!
Our wedding day was beyond perfect! The team at Stirk House were incredible. Dani and Lucy helped to organise the most amazing day and I was able to trust them with every detail. Dave was a right laugh and kept the crowd buzzing all day. The venue was just stunning on the day and had been decorated beautifully. We could not have imagined anything better. All our guests raved about the food which melted in the mouth and the bar staff did a brilliant job of keeping the shots flowing all night long! The rooms were stunning and the value for money was great. Our honeymoon suit was simply wonderful and in the morning we had breakfast in the room soaking it all up. Stirk House is set in a gorgeous surroundings and is stunning no matter what the weather. We can not rate the staff and venue high enough and we are so glad we chose Stirk House as the setting to start of our marriage.

23.09.23 The most magical day ✨
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our wedding day so incredible and magical! We’d seen the venue even before getting engaged and after Luke popped the question we knew that we had to arrange an appointment. Once we drove down the drive way and walked into Stirk House we were blown away. Lucy was amazing showing us around, so welcoming and wonderful - We knew instantly this was our wedding venue. All the planning and preparation that goes into your wedding day can be so overwhelming but the staff at Stirk House, Danielle and Lucy in particular, have just been a dream. So lovely and helpful in guiding us all the way from our first initial meeting through to our perfect wedding day. You guys couldn’t have done enough for us, nothing has been too much to ask and we are so grateful to you all. You really have gone above and beyond to make our day so special. Our day ran so seamlessly and that is all down to the amazing co-ordinators. The food was incredible, from the canapés to our wedding breakfast everything was amazing! Even breakfast the next morning was top notch! A massive shout out to Dave who was just absolutely AMAZING. You made sure our guests were entertained all day and alongside Danielle, made sure the day ran smoothly. You are a credit to the Stirk House team and we were so very lucky to have you as part of our day! Thank you Dave. To anyone newly engaged and looking for the perfect wedding venue then do not hesitate to arrange an appointment with the Stirk House team. The outside provides the most perfect backdrop to your wedding photos and the inside will give you most incredible day with your nearest and dearest. Thank you so so much Stirk House! We wish we could do it all again with you! Lots of love Mr & Mrs Illingworth 23.09.23 xxxxxxx

Our dream wedding.
Front start to finish, we honestly couldn’t have asked for anything more. Danielle welcomed us from our first visit. She really did make us feel so welcome and organised with everything. The day of the wedding couldn’t have gone any better. The rooms are amazing and beautiful. A lot of space for me and 7 bridesmaids and mother of the bride. Breakfast was brought up to the bridal suite, just as we asked and food was beautiful. Very well organised for the groom and his party too. Staff are so friendly! We can’t thank Dave enough, what an amazing man! Absolutely amazing. Helped us through are wedding from start to finish. Always by our side. Made our family feel comfortable too. Can’t thank him enough for what he did for us on our special day. We would recommend stirk house. Just a beautiful place. Thank you so much. Can’t wait to return.

Best Wedding Day Ever
What a perfect day!! Right from our initial meeting with the girls Lucy/Danni and Elisha nothing was too much trouble, talked us through everything and made sure all the day was covered. Our Dave was fantastic and made sure that our day was flawless and kept everything moving and on time! He looked after us both all day until he left, made us feel special and felt like we'd known him a lifetime. All the staff were amazing, so friendly and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble! The hotel is set in beautiful surroundings which are well kept, the rooms are great and have all you need in them! Bridal Suite is spectacular. The food was incredible from the canopies to the desserts and the night buffet...enjoyed it all! The Breakfast was amazing, so much so that I asked the Chef where he got his sausages from!! All our guests who stayed said how much they enjoyed the food but the Breakfast hit the spot and got a lot of compliments. We would definitely recommend The Stirk House to anyone thinking of getting married or even just a nights stay! Couldn't do enough for us.. We would just like to give you all a MASSIVE THANK YOU for making our day so special. Mick & Di Lally xxx

The best day EVER!!
Had the most amazing day for our wedding last week on 01.09.23. Stirk house was outstanding from start to finish, thank you to the wedding coordinators Danielle, Lucy & Elisha for answering my endless questions and making sure everything went seamless. Food was incredible and had so many compliments, all food came out so quick and no table was without while others ate which is a rare thing at weddings and we was very impressed. Dave is just amazing, he made sure the day ran smoothly and kept everyone in the know, nothing was too much and the energy was kept high throughout the whole day! Just wish I could do it all over again, THE perfect wedding venue and will be visiting each year on our anniversary to relive this magical day! Thank you for everything, Mr & Mrs Gori (Mr & Mrs G) xx

Frequently Asked Questions

Describe the best wedding that happened at Stirk House Hotel?

It's so hard to pick just one! We had a festival style wedding once though which was out of this world. After the ceremony and wedding breakfast, everyone headed outside to where we had a stage set up with dancefloor, and different bands playing all day. There were haybales, a prosecco tent, an outside bar, and even fireworks! Once the bands finished around 10am, everyone headed inside for a silent disco in our main function suite. I'll always remember this wedding, as it was so unique and really personal to the couple.

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

I always advise couples to book the registrar as soon as the venue is booked, to make sure they can book a time that works for them. With this in mind, for the Winter weddings, I also recommend to not book the wedding too late. This is because it will usually start getting dark around 4pm, so we need to make sure there is enough time for photos!

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

Anything that is personal to the couple though, whether that is some of the decorations they have made themselves, or different kind of favours for their guests. I remember one wedding where they had photos of their parents and grandparents wedding days on a table which was so lovely. Also, one wedding had hangover kits made for guests which were put in their rooms before arrival. Such a great touch and I'm sure much appreciated by their guests!

Describe Stirk House Hotel in 5 adjectives

Charming, Character, Modern, Special, Unique

Where’s the best photo spot at Stirk House Hotel?

It has to be the Stirk House Tree. We have a really old tree in the grounds, which has decking around it. The tree itself is huge and absolutely stunning. The views during the day from there too create the perfect backdrop for photos. Then, at night time, the whole tree lights up. We have over 5,000 lights wrapped around the trunk and right up into the branches. It really is something completely different to anywhere else. There are some photos on the profile for you to look at!

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at Stirk House Hotel?

Yes, we had the actor Ross Adams who plays the character Scott Drinkwell in Hollyoaks get married at Stirk House in April 2018 to his now husband Phil. They were such a lovely couple, and often came to wedding fayres, to try the food, and Ross also had his groom shower here. On the day itself, there were many of the cast here too from the programme as guests. Both the groom shower and the wedding was also featured in OK Magazine. A very proud moment for us at the hotel!

What’s your favourite canapé?

It would have to be the mini fish and chip cones. They are so tasty!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

I love cheese and onion toasties!! They are soo tasty and just what you need at the end of the night

What is Stirk House Hotel most unique feature?

We have a beautiful conservatory area at the hotel. It's an extension of the original building, but not quite fully attached to the wall. This has meant that the Virgina Creeper that surrounds the original building can continue to grow year round. The leaves change with the seasons, so it looks beautiful whatever the season. It creates a really nice backdrop for photos inside, if the weather is not so good outside. It also has a seating area too which is often enjoyed by wedding guests, especially during the summer. And again, we have fairy lights in here too so it also looks completely different at night all lit up!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

The staff and the service they provide. The hotel is family owned, so it's not part of a corporate chain, and means we have much more flexibility than other venues without having to implement strict "do's and don'ts". The staff all work extremely closely together, and makes for an enjoyable place to work. This is reflected in the service we provide - each staff member is always going above and beyond to provide the best possible service to the customer, and this has been recognised in some of the awards we have won. We also often have comments from suppliers, about how much they enjoy working with us as a venue and a team, as we are also here to assist them and make their job easier too!
