The most perfect day!
We have just had our wedding at the Swallows Oast and all I can say is that if you're considering booking then do it! We had the most perfect day from start to finish. All of our guests were asking how we found such a hidden treasure of a venue.....its simply stunning! The food was also absolutely delicious, in particular the canapés and everyone was raving about it. To top it all off the staff were amazing! So attentive and nothing was too much trouble. One bit of advice would be to book the bridal suite, it's so beautiful 😍 Mark, Russell and team - thank you so much for making our day more special than we could have ever imagined ❤ xxx

The most amazing day!!!!
Myself and my Husband booked this venue back in 2018 due to get married 25/04/20. However, just like many other couples out there we had to postpone due to Covid. After many dates and even more postponements we were finally able to tie the knot on 10/07/21. And what a magical day it was! All through the postponements and rearranging, Mark and Clare were on hand to help and answer any of our worries. We hired the venue the day before to decorate and again all staff that were on hand to help were amazing!!!! The whole day from start to finish was an absolute dream! All of the staff, Mark, Clare and Amelia were just fantastic and our guests couldn’t stop complimenting the waiting team :) The bridal sweet was the perfect touch too!! They do absolutely anything they can to ensure it is your perfect day and we really can’t thank you all enough!!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

The Best Wedding we have had was the first one after the Lockdown, although small it was very intimate and such a pleasure after such a difficult year.
