  • Megan Rose Bowman

    We've just had our wedding here on Saturday the 22nd, and it was amazing. Elizabeth was the most helpful person I've ever met, as were all the other staff that we met whilst planning our day. All of our guests said to us that they never realised how beautiful the venue was, and how lovely the staff were. The lodges are also beautiful, as well as the surroundings! Thank you so much

  • Kayleigh & James Jackson

    From the first meeting with Elizabeth, she was so organised and asked exactly the right questions to get us thinking about our wedding. She kept in contact throughout the 2 years of planning and then the week before we met to have a final meeting which put my Husband and I at ease ready for our wedding day! The day finally came and the staff at High Lodge couldn’t have been more helpful, particularly Elizabeth in being the last to leave at the end as well! We can’t thank Elizabeth and all of the team at High Lodge enough for our amazing wedding, thank you!

  • Emma & Macauley Woodard

    Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help in planning our special day! We had such an amazing day and weekend. Thanks again, we couldn’t have done it without you!
