The Moat House possesses over 600 years of history, with traces of occupation dating back to the second century with the discovery of a Roman Villa under and around the village church.

  • Alice and Phil

    We got married at The Moat House and the staff were amazing!! Nothing was too much trouble for them. I had a meal with my family the evening before my wedding and the chef did a slate of several chocolates wishing me luck from the Lewis Partnership group, which I thought was a lovely touch. The venue is beautiful and has some lovely photograph opportunities. Thank you for helping me through the wedding planning process from start to finish. You made our day truly amazing.

  • Aimee

    My husband and I got married at The Moat House and from booking the date until our wedding day the team were fantastic every step of the way. A big shout out to Nikki who is just a dream to work with and will go above and beyond to sort something out for you. The food on our wedding day was fantastic and the amount of guests that came up and complimented the beef was unbelievable. I’d recommend this venue to anyone! Thanks again.

    We got married at The Moat House and it was simply perfect. The accommodation for all our rooms was amazing, very clean and tidy, the space in the suite where I got ready the morning of my wedding was beautiful and plenty of room to get 4 adult women ready with photographers and family visiting.

    They day itself was beautifully managed by Nikki and the team. I had nothing to worry about and everything we had discussed in the months leading up to the day was executed without issue.
    The rooms were dressed to perfection by Design Elegance and their communication and professionalism was second to none. Thank you to everyone at The Moat House - we loved our day and wouldn’t change a thing.

  • Sammi and Mitch

    My husband and I had our wedding at The Moat House and it was perfect. Everything from start to finish was flawless - everything was organised so well! We want to thank Gaynor for all the planning of our big day and Hannah and Nikki for being with us from the moment we stepped in the door. Throughout the day anything we wanted or needed they were there – we couldn’t have wished for a better wedding day. Thanks again.
