Refurbished in the early 19th century, Thorn House has been host to guests such as the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Edinburgh at exquisite past events. In the 1920s, the garden was a point of pride, as it was developed and cultivated into a stunning site by William Arkwright.

    A big thank you! Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our special day. Everything went so well and everyone had the best time! Thank you for all your hard work!

  • Helen

    We held our wedding anniversary party at Thorn House, Tina and her team were fantastic at our event. I didn't have to worry about anything as they organised and carried out everything we asked them to do with a smile and a "don't worry". I would recommend them for any wedding or reception event.
