Venue Testimonials

We got married at Down Hall, and the day and evening were amazing in every way. The venue itself is to die for; it exudes charm, luxury and elegance. The staff were all amazing. Anyone thinking of booking a wedding here, just do it. Our day couldn't have been any better, and we will never be able to thank everyone enough.

Andrew B

Beautiful venue! Attended for a friend's wedding recently, and it was very impressive. I had a look at the rooms too, and they were spacious and luxurious, with lovely bathrooms. The grounds and bar areas were both well-kept.

Matthew B

A lovely old house within many acres of ground. Similar to a national trust property. Full use of the grounds and a large lounge with a log fire in the winter when dining in the restaurant.
