    We had a truly amazing day and absolutely everybody at Woodhall Manor went out of their way to make sure it was a fantastic day for everyone. Every guest, and we really do mean EVERY guest, commented on how beautiful the Manor is and how smoothly it all went. The attention to detail, the friendliness of the staff, the wonderful food, everything was perfect. Thank you all so so much, it was the best day ever.

    My brother-in-law and his wife-to-be got married at Woodhall Manor on a sunny Sunday in July 2016. It is a surprisingly large venue with multiple areas and rooms and perfectly manicured gardens; the scenery is truly magical and made the day all the more beautiful. The sit-down meal was delicious and the staff were very attentive and accommodating.

    We also spent the night in one of their rooms (room 14, which is slightly set apart, so perfect for some privacy); everything was beautifully designed and spotless. The view over the rear gardens was wonderful in the morning.

    If you are thinking of having your wedding here, I can say that as a guest, it was awe-inspiring and felt very much like a fairytale.

    Simply wonderful venue for any size wedding. The grounds are extensive in this Elizabethan Manor - great places for those wedding pics. The food was spectacular! The bedrooms are very well furnished with good linen and treats. All the staff were very helpful and worked hard (and quietly!) to make your stay memorable.

  • Daisy

    I recently had my wedding at Woodhall Manor and it was simply beautiful. The staff looked after us really well and made sure everything was how we wanted it. The ceremony was stunning and the food was incredible, not a single complaint from us; it was the best food I’ve ever had at a wedding. The venue was beautiful, the decorations looked fantastic and the presentation was just out of this world! Our wedding photos look amazing with the manor and gardens in the background. I would definitely recommend Woodhall Manor to anyone looking for an exquisite manor house to hold their wedding.
