Full Description
WEDDING OPEN DAY - SUNDAY 10TH OCTOBER 2021 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 also offer Weddings in our new part of the venue - Thunderbridge Gardens, where we have a gorgeous glass marquee set in woodland with an adjoining Orangery reception area. 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.

Incredible Talented & Hardworking Staff
Jordan, Elinor and their team were just fantastic, from first meeting Jordan at a sunny Woodman wedding fayre in June that we came upon by chance on Facebook, to stumbling bleary-eyed to a delicious breakfast the morning after the wedding night, following a lovely stay in the beautiful Woodman suite, they could not have done enough for us! Jordan and Elinor went above and beyond in the 18 month build-up to our wedding day to keep things stress-free and organised and ensure they had every detail in place to ensure the smooth running of the day; which for a wedding 2 days before Christmas is no easy feat. No question was unanswered and they were so quick to respond to all my weird and odd questions.... width of curtain poles!? So many our our guests from the day commented on how friendly, accommodating and incredible the staff working were, the food was exquisite - and I think its safe to say we have earned the Woodman a whole tribe of new foodie fans from Sheffield - we ourselves will be life-long regulars of the Woodman's Sunday lunch, their food is incomparable! The running of the day was smooth and trouble-free, the service spectacular and nothing was too much trouble. I could not recommend the Woodman Inn more highly and entrust future brides and grooms to place their dream wedding day in the more than capable hands of Jordan and Elinor.

Perfect Winter Wedding
22nd December 2019, what a perfect Winter Wedding we had at The Woodman! It was everything we had wished for & more, all down to the fantastic organisation and consideration of the team ❤️ From meeting Jordan for the first time, we felt his professional but radiant & friendly vibe shine through! Nothing was ever too much for him & Elinor from day dot which was very relaxing. The food was outstanding, as commented on by our guests, the venue was a beautiful mixture of rustic class & the company of Jordan, Elinor, Dan & the bar staff made our wedding feel very personal! I want to thank you all for making our day so special & sharing our experience; Love from Mr & Mrs Farrall ✨

Fantastic Team & Venue!
Honestly we would not change a single thing about our day. Everything was so organised, the staff are all so professional and the day ran 100% to plan. You guys have a fantastic team and venue and you should be very proud of what you do 😊 I can’t thank you enough for all you did for us. Best day of our lives by far! The guests mentioned to us afterwards how lovely the day was and how beautiful the venue is and how they will come back. The Woodman will now always be one of our fave places and we will now be regulars 😊 thank you so much again!

Nothing was too much trouble!
Well what can we say about the Woodman Inn... it’s simply amazing. We knew straight away it was the perfect venue for us! At every meeting I was instantly put at ease with Jordan, by the end of our day it felt like he was family. After the wedding was over and having time to think about our day, I could never thank Jordan, Dan and the entire team enough. Nothing was too much trouble, I couldn’t believe the amount of prep, help, work and support that was given from Jordan throughout it definitely made our experience even more perfect as I knew he was thinking ahead in every way. Dan was also brilliant and a credit to your team. Again, instantly put at ease and so helpful. We have just got our photos back and wish we could do it all again. Thank you for making our wedding everything we’ve ever wanted! The Wedding Team is a huge credit to the Woodman Inn. Love Katie & Guy Gledhill 16 November 2019
