An amazing day!
Wow, where to start?! We had an absolutely amazing day from start to finish. The team were amazing, so attentive and helped with so many parts of the day. The food was amazing! So many of our guests are going to be venturing back to sample the menus. It felt like we had exclusive use of the venue, but without the excessive price tag. The views are amazing, and the autumn colours outside the venue really added to our photos. I did get really anxious about our wedding day, but the team did absolutely everything they could for us that it meant we could just enjoy our day. They had everything in hand. Our wedding suite was beautiful too. I can't wait to go back for our anniversary. Thank you again!

The perfect day
We got married at the Fleece at the start of August 2022. Everything about the day was perfect. Carrie-Anne and team were fab from the moment we booked, communicating clearly and answering any questions we had. The team were very accommodating, we had quite a few different dietary requirements and all were catered for. The ceremony was beautiful, the reception/food was gorgeous and the evening was so much fun. Seamless from start to finish. Not to mention the stunning views! All of this for a very reasonable price tag. Would highly recommend.

Our wedding day feb 2022
Me and my husband got married here in February 2022. We had a wonderful day and it was the perfect venue for us! All staff were very friendly and accommodating. Our day seemed to flow naturally and the food was amazing and pleased all our guests! The DJ provided by the fleece provided a great atmosphere for the evening celebrations too. A stunning venue with a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

we couldn't have wished for anything better.
"We originally booked our wedding in January 2019 and had planned for 40 day guests and 80 evening guests. However, with the restrictions in place when we got married in October, we were only allowed 15 people in total (including the bride and groom). This obviously wasn't as planned and was upsetting at the time, but, we were adamant that we were going to get married, and in the end, we both thought the smaller wedding was perfect and we couldn't have wished for anything better. "The fewer guests made both the ceremony and the reception more intimate, and with only our family and close friends there, it certainly felt more personal for us both. Throughout the day and evening, all our guests were mingling, and it gave us more time to spend with everyone who attended, without the large number of guests pulling us from pillar to post. To fill out some of the time, we did a wedding quiz, which everyone got involved with and it really added to the day. "We initially thought that the lower number of guests would make the room feel too big, however, this wasn't the case. The Fleece laid everything out perfectly in both the day and the evening. The staff were so attentive to all our guests and made everyone feel safe and accommodated for. Alongside this, the food was exceptional. "I wouldn't worry about going ahead with a wedding in these current times and would recommend a smaller wedding to anyone." Jack and Lorna - 30.10.20

everyone involved in our day made it super relaxed
After having to rearrange our wedding twice due to COVID in 2020 we were lucky to get married in October. We want to thank Team Fleece for firstly being so accommodating and secondly for an absolutely brilliant day. COVID restrictions were in place which meant there was only 15 of us but everyone involved in our day made it super relaxed and enjoyable. Special mention too to Carrie-Anne, you truly are a star! The venue looked stunning for the ceremony and meal thanks to ‘your aisle style’ and The Fleece. Even though we were a smaller party than originally planned the venue was set out so it felt cosy. All of our guests enjoyed the day and the food was delicious, especially the sticky toffee pudding. Thanks again Team Fleece, we wouldn’t hesitate to book you for an event in the future xx
