Venue Testimonials

The most amazing place to have any event. I had my wedding there and it was magic! Food was the best we have ever had and the team there attended to everything! Sarah is the best. We absolutely loved our special day and all our guests did too. Thank you all so much.

Aja S.

We even can’t find the adequate words to express our gratefulness to the staff of pioneer country and Sarah (the venue coordinator) for helping make this the most magical for me and my now husband. Sarah is extremely knowledgeable and so switched on, she was one of the biggest bonuses of choosing pioneer country as our venue. But! There were plenty of other bonuses too! Firstly, it is a stunning place! No need to spend precious time driving on your wedding day because pioneer country has the most beautiful chapel, gorgeous landscapes for photos and fun/exciting reception hall that looked especially great after the new Hampton’s grey and white paint job, this venue gives you every opportunity for the most amazing photos and best experiences. It was truely the best day and we can thank the people of pioneer country enough.

Pioneer Country has the most amazing rustic country atmosphere and we instantly knew this is the place where we wanted to get married. Sarah has truely went above and beyond to ensure that our day was perfect.

The Pioneer Country team made our special day run so smoothly and stress free, it was a dream! The woodfire pizza and grazing table was a hit with our guest.
