Venue Testimonials

We recently held our wedding at the Woodlands, and I couldn’t recommend it more highly! The day was amazing, everything was as we had planned, the food was exceptional and the staff was so helpful. Our guests loved the venue and accommodation. Such a wonderful hidden gem in the most picturesque location.

An amazing historical place that offers a little bit of everything, great accommodation, cafe food and excellent coffee through to an amazing restaurant. The mansion tour is well worth it and additionally, the beautiful location offers the ideal wedding venue.

Beautiful location for our weekend away. Dinner at the mansion and breakfast at the cafe, everything was delicious. The kids loved the large pool and we all enjoyed the scenic vistas when exploring the grounds. The staff were friendly. I would definitely come back again.
