    I cannot praise the Manor enough for everything you did not only on the day but for the build up also. We had a fantastic day as did all of our guests, and the food was amazing.

    We wanted to say a huge thank you for our incredible wedding day! We thought it was literally perfect in every way and loved every single minute of our day.

    We cannot thank all the team at the Manor enough for giving us the most perfect of days. It was truly everything we hoped for and more! All of our guests have said how amazing the venue and staff were, and we completely agree. We can honestly say we wouldn’t have changed a single thing, it was just perfect!

  • Eleanor and Johnathan

    We cannot thank you all enough as we know that our day would not have been anywhere near as perfect without all of the help from the team at Manor By the Lake. From start to finish the team was so professional and so personable that it kept us so relaxed as we knew everything was under control. From the very first time we visited the Manor, we knew that we were in great hands which made our decision to get married at this special venue a very easy one. The food was absolutely excellent and we have received such amazing comments from all of our guests who enjoyed this magical venue just as much as we did! Thank you again!

  • PJ Carter

    My son and his fiancée (now his wife) have just held their wedding at this venue. I can't begin to tell you what a wonderful place this is you need to see it for yourself. From the time we got there to checking out next day we were treated like royalty. The bedrooms are superb and the food is amazing.
    Thank you to all the staff who made this a memorable day.

  • Ellie B

    My son was married at the Manor by the Lake earlier this week. The setting is truly beautiful, the manor and grounds kept in perfect order. The staff are hard working, well turned out, cheerful and very helpful. Every guest request was greeted with a smile and nothing too much trouble for them. The food, wine and presentation were all very good. A very memorable occasion in a very memorable setting.

  • Nicola H
