Full Description
Set in the centre of a historic hamlet, nestled within the foothills of Yorkshire’s South Pennines, our beautifully refurbished 18th century country inn offers superb food, a stunning setting for your photographs, impeccable service and unrivalled attention to every detail. We have two venues on offer at The Woodman Inn and are fully licensed to hold civil ceremonies, and for your special day, you will have exclusive use of our intimate wedding venue, beautifully tended gardens and accommodation for your guests. Country Room: Our intimate Country Room is the perfect venue for those wanting to celebrate their special day in an idyllic woodland surrounding, rivalling any country pub wedding venue in Yorkshire. Our Country Room, located within our Country Inn, is suited for intimate weddings of up to 60 guests. Garden Room: The Garden Room, located in our secluded woodland gardens with gorgeous glass marquee and adjoining Orangery reception area, is more suited for weddings of up to 150 guests. This is set in its own private part of the venue and feels very much an exclusive, peaceful & romantic area. The stunningly beautiful gardens flanked by a lovely stream and woodland really does create a gorgeous setting for a wedding. The tranquil hamlet of Thunderbridge is rich in history, plentiful with wildlife, and such a peaceful woodland location that you might just be joined on your special day by the local deer, a fox or badger. Known by the locals as “God’s own county,” you and your guests will enjoy complete privacy in this rustic haven of unspoilt Yorkshire countryside. This idyllic location truly is the perfect setting for the most romantic of weddings.

Myself and my husband went to view this venue back in October 2021. The Woodman Inn was the first venue we were shown around. We were greeted by a lovely, professional, enthusiastic gentleman called Jordan, and from the second he said "Hi" to us I knew I was going to adore this place! Jordan spoke to us about the Country room and the Garden room and gave us a tour of the whole venue, including one of the rooms. He asked us plenty of questions and made the meeting feel very personal and all about us. Leading up to the big day, we had plenty of support, guiding us through how our day would run and everyone was so patient and accommodating to the thousands of questions I had 🤦‍♀️😂 we met with Kieran, who lead our 8 week meeting and then on our final meeting we met with Ben. And the 3 of these people from the events team have been outstanding in their conduct of our day. There wasn't a question too silly, or a request too much, they accommodated to everything we needed. We can't thank the team enough, the bar staff, cleaners, DJ, waiters/waitresses and the events team, you all contributed to the perfect day that was our wedding. It was one of the most chilled out experiences of our life. Even the planning wasn't stressful because I knew I trusted the team. So, do we recommend the Woodman Inn? 1000% and more!

Exceptional service and experience
From the beginning of our interactions with the Woodman, we were thoroughly impressed by the thoughtfulness and flexibility of Jordan and Keiran. The first viewing and consultation was superb, and everything we discussed came to fruition in our day eighteen months later; no surprises, no disappointment, no catch whatsoever. The beauty of the Woodman as a wedding venue comes in two parts: firstly, the packages offer excellent value for money and alleviate a great deal of stress through their ease. Secondly, the venue is flexible enough to allow you to put your own personal stamp on the day, in all sorts of ways. The food was phenomenal, and every allergy catered for. Our guests are still talking about the meal AND the evening food! Choose the Woodman for a stress-free planning process, friendly service and high quality, elegant wedding.

Simply perfect.
When trusting your most important, most anticipated day of your life, the decision on where and who looks after this for you is crucial. When, my then fiancé and I were looking at every available option to us for our special day, we simply stopped when we saw the Woodman and met Jordan. This is because the venue was stunning and so was Jordan. Jordan was welcoming, warm, and made us feel special as potential 'customers' and that our day was important, wanted and valued to not only them as a business but Jordan personally. Nothing false or pretentious, just a genuine love and becoming attitude to both Jess and I, something that was never lost in the 18 months to follow. During the 'stressfull' process of sourcing, planning, and execution of the most important day of your life, Jordan and then Kieran and then Ben as well were simply perfect in making us feel that everything was possible, doable, no problem and most importantly, all under control. From start to finsish we knew that our wedding was in the best hands and were made to feel that it was as important to the team as it was to ourselves. This is a very special skill and a priceless one in the role all the team are in. With a few changes in job roles could have seen a change in dynamic, it did, but only for the better. Keiran came in with a laid back back, yet assured focus on delivering the operation of our wedding. Nothing too much trouble, nothing that couldnt be worked out, nothing that felt it couldn't acheived. A lovely, walm calming influence on an increasingly nervous Bride and Groom to be as the day approached. Jess and I were helped to tweak some bits and peices along the way and again we just knew it was all in hand and under control, again, something that money or all the will in the world cant simply provide, only superb staff, with a great attitude and a genuine care for the role that includes to appear to care about your own wedding, as if it were their own. On the day, Ben was too outstanding. Attentive, friendly, composed and dovetailed in with Kieran perfect, again with calm, composure and giving off the relaxed persona that is needed as the reality of the day starts to seep to the wedding party. At no point did I feel too nervous about the operation of our wedding, and rhe biggest complent I can give the entire team, is that they felt like a part of the wedding too. They blended in where needed, stepped in when required and were exceptional at being professional to our guests but also joining in with our relaxed atmosphere, adding an extra layer to our day and one that was fed back from our own guests commenting how lovely the staff were all day, into the evening and even joining in at the end in a well deserved drink with us. The viewing, the following meetings, the 'out of hours' questions from us, the tone of service and attitude from Jordan and in turn Kieran was flawless, we felt we were being looked after like royalty from what we now regard as friends, not customers. If you are reading this and debating a viewing or unsure between venues, please rest assured that the entire team team at the Woodman will make your wedding day seamless, uncomplicated, special and stress free from start to finish. Delivering a simply perfect venue, service and execution of your life's most important day for you both, your family and all your guests. Mr and Mrs Bannerman were treated with love, respect, fun, smiles and to a wedding day that we and every single guest agreed was simply perfect. In service, in above and beyond preperation and delivery. Jess and I would love to thank every single member of the team that delivered the perfect prep, the perfect location, the perfect service, incredible food and just the perfect day in our lives, bar none. A huge love and even bigger thank you and mention to Keiran, Jordan and Ben that were simply flawless from start to finish. Something that will never be lost on us and anyone else lucky enough to have their day at The Woodman under all your tutorship. Thank you all so much again, we love you all and hope you get many more chances to show off your incredibal hard work and superb delivery of all you do. We will be back at christmas and many an anniversary. From.all thr Bannerman's. Thank you!!!

Outstanding
The team at the woodman Inn were absolutely amazing from initially looking around all the way through to our wedding day! Jordan and Kieran were amazing and couldn't do enough to make our day extra special! Nothing was too much trouble and they made planning the day a dream! Every single guest was so complimentary of the food, venue, rooms and staff! This venue is amazing as are the wonderful people who work there!

Best day ever!!
Our wedding day was absolutely magical, like something out of a fairytale. Kieran and Jordan helped us every step of the way and resolved some major issues that required last minute changes without any fuss. Needless to say I would have been far more stressed in the lead up to the day without their support. Our ceremony was beautiful and we have some stunning pictures thanks to the gorgeous venue. Every single one of our guests remarked on how perfect the day was and also how amazing the food was! The DJ that we were connected to was also fab and had everybody on the dancefloor until the bitter end! Couldn't recommend The Woodman Inn highly enough, so glad that we decided to have our wedding there. So many guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to - and I have to agree (though I might be biased!)

A huge thank you
Dear Kieran, Jordan, Ben and all the Woodman team. Almost two months in we feel like we might just be coming back down from the high that was our wedding day! But our professional photos have arrived this week and that’s set us off all over again, we just had to share some of our favourites and take the opportunity to say an enormous thank you to you all. Our wedding day surpassed all of our hopes and expectations. We are so glad that we had our ceremony in the marquee, something we wouldn’t have considered if it weren’t for your flexibility and the way in which you prioritise all of your guests needs. We chose the Woodman because we knew the quality of service and incredible food that would be on offer but our guests, particularly the vegetarian and vegan diners were blown away by their food. Every minute of our day ran so smoothly, we are so grateful for the amazing service all of the staff provided on the day, we had everything we needed and nothing was too much to ask. We will be along again soon to relive some of the fab memories, until then thank you so much. Lots of love Mr and Mrs Odell
