We will be recommending T.H.E to everyone
Thank you all for making Katie and Joe’s wedding amazing, everything was perfect! We couldn’t fault a thing and will be recommending The Holford Estate to everyone. The Mill House was a great addition, the gardens looked fantastic, and a really big thank you for the excellent organisation and planning, it was a day we will never forget.

A very special place and a very special team.
From the minute we stepped foot on the grounds of T.H.E. we knew we wanted to get married there, with lockdown, lucky us got to do it twice and we are so grateful you made it happen. Both wedding days were so different but equally special in there own way and we will cherish the memories made at Holford for the rest of our lives. You have a very special place and a very special team, we hope to keep in touch and wish you all the very best!

Everything ran smoothly, the venue is amazing!
My daughter and her fiancé Ben were married last Tuesday at Holford. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff for a wonderful day. Everything ran smoothly, the venue is amazing and looked beautiful. Everyone enjoyed the day and nothing was to much trouble for the great staff you have. I would also like to say, The Mill was a wonderful place to chill with Amy the night before. Thank you all so much from the bottom of my heart, for making that dream day we have been waiting so long for finally come true! Linda Mother of the bride

Travel Notes

When travelling down the A556, pass the Smoker pub on your left. Just over half a mile after turn left at the green greyhound sign! The road is busy so sometimes best to slow down and indicate a little earlier :) We can also be found on Google Maps.
