A perfect venue for our wedding!
We fell in love with The Bay Tree Hotel immediately. We loved the homey atmosphere, with the open fire places and cosy bar area. We first met Abby when we came to view the venue and she was so friendly and welcoming. We soon began planning and she was always available to chat, and went above and beyond to ensure everything was perfect for us. The day was incredible, all of our guests commented on how lovely the staff were, and how much they enjoyed the venue. Joe and I felt at ease knowing everything was sorted for us, Abby made us feel so calm and relaxed. It was truly amazing, we couldn’t have asked for a better venue and I’d recommend The Bay Tree and Abby to everyone!

The most amazing day
Not wanting to sound like a bridezilla but I wanted our wedding to be a (low key, intimate) event, not just a wedding day and the Bay Tree offered me everything I wished for with the understated elegance of the venue, wonderful food and the amazing team who felt like they were an extended part of our wedding party and not staff running a venue, they become like family and truely went above and beyond. Most of our guests stayed the night before the wedding as well as the night of the wedding and the whole weekend felt very relaxed and allowed us to enjoy the whole thing and spend quality time with family and friends, from cozy drinks in the bar the night before to a much needed breakfasts the day after to help with the hangovers!!! The Bay Tree offers a stunning garden and the picturesque village is a fantastic backdrop for the photos. The ceremony room and dinning room and all the little seating areas around the venue are the ultimate in sophistication. If I could do it all over again I would not change a thing.
Response from the venue
