Just had our daughters wedding here and would thoroughly recommend to anyone. The staff were brilliant and so attentive and helpful and friendly. the room for the meal was incredible with fantastic views and the food was really good. The room was decorated in in an amazing way to reflect the theme of travel and our guests was so complimentary about the whole day and we were all treated so well. The getting ready room is fabulous and the whole day we were made to feel special. It was lovely to have the ceremony outside too. he rooms are really comfortable and we slept well. The building is so old and majestic and totally full of character.

We got married at the Ravenswood 2 weeks ago, from start to finish the day and night was truly amazing from the staff, venue, food! Yvette was so lovely and organised the whole day she was always there when we needed her and completely on the ball as we’re all the staff! I would definitely recommend this hotel to get married in and want to do it all over again! Thanks so much xx

We had the perfect wedding day (21.09.2018) and can’t thank the staff enough for all of their help and guidance before and on our big day. Thank you so much!

My now husband and I had our wedding at the Ravenswood on 16 September. We cannot thank the team enough for making the day truly amazing. We had everyone complimenting the venue and how beautiful it was. Sam, Joanna, Michael, Yvette and Megan were so helpful and accommodating. Everyone felt welcomed including us. Not only were the grounds picture perfect, the food from the canapés to the evening buffet was delicious. So thank you so much to everyone at the Ravenswood for making our wedding day so perfect!!!!!!

Got married here in August (30th) and it was the best time of my life.. The staff are absolutely amazing and the venue is amazing too.. Everything was perfect due to the staff being super on the ball.. They done everything I could have imagined and couldn’t do more for us. If I could rate them higher on here then I most definitely would. Highly recommend to anyone that wants a perfect wedding!!!!! Thank you so so much!!

We attended a family wedding here which was amazing, the staff were very helpful and nothing was to much trouble, we didn’t stay here but the grounds are amazing and the hotel had clearly understood the couple themes, the food was excellent and definitely reflected the high quality of the hotel. Parking we believe is easy but we travel by taxi which we pre-booked.

My husband, David and I married at this stunning venue on 19th July 2018. Right from the moment we first had a tour, back in January, we knew this was where our special day was going to be. From day 1, Joanna and the rest of The Ravenswood team couldn’t have been more helpful and nothing was ever too much trouble. The planning of our big day was made so much easier with Joanna’s help. Our big day couldn’t have gone any better. Everything was so well organised by Joanna, which took away any pressure or stress. The weather was lovely and the day was very emotional and beautiful and one that we will never forget. Special thanks to Claire Pickering for being such a great host/waitress during the meal and having some photos with the kids. We couldn’t have had such a great day without the help of The Ravenswood team. Xx

My wife and I are delighted to say that the Ravenswood was the perfect place to have a wedding. Its set in the most wonderful grounds and is hosted by excellent and friendly staff. We had hoped for an outdoor wedding but alas the weather was god awful, but the venue is able to do indoor ceremony and its a lovely setting, with the fire lit to create a lovely smell. The food was excellent (white chocolate crème brulee for pudding….heaven!) and the rooms were just what you need for guests.
We can’t thank the staff enough for going out of their way to take my wife’s mum to hospital in the morning after she broke her toe, what’s a wedding without some drama?!
Thanks again to you all and we wish we could do it all over again!
– Marek and Kalee, August 2018
We got married Saturday 28th July 2018 and from the first time we went there to see a wedding show we fell in love with the venue. And every time we went to go look around and finding even more secret areas around the grounds and sorting arrangements out Joanna was so accommodating and nothing was a problem at all even down to the constant emails me asking lots of questions. We had an amazing day and evening and it was just exactly what we dreamed off. Joanna helped make the day go so smoothly from beginning to end.
There is so many photo opportunities around the whole building we didn’t have enough time for everything we wanted. Thank you so much to all the team at the Ravenswood, it was absolutely amazing and if we could do it again we would.
– Lots of love Mr & Mrs Grantham, July 2018
I would just like to thank you all for the excellent service we received from you when attending Ben and Hayley’s wedding on Friday 3rd March 2018, and also for having our rooms ready early so we could freshen up after a long journey, we really appreciated it. The wedding was beautiful and went very smoothly and we enjoyed our stay at the hotel. Thank you once again for your excellent service.
– Mr and Mrs Sired, March 2018
My husband and I got married here recently July 14th 2018 on a beautiful English summer day! The planning, lead up to the wedding were superb with help from the whole team at the Ravenswood. They were even so kind to take time to understand how we wanted personal additions and decorations at the Ravenswood- to help the Ushers assemble it all on the day!
The wedding day itself was wonderful and ran smoothly thanks to their help and personal gestures to ensure bride and groom were happy! The grounds were looking stunning and such an improvement already since their ownership for only around a year. I can only imagine how the venue will continue to grow and become even more beautiful and exciting with numerous new ideas and additions such as the getting ready room, refurbishment to the bridal suite etc! We really had a wonderful day and would highly recommend it as a wedding venue for those looking.

Just returned from a wedding and overnight stay at this wonderful hotel. The front desk was welcoming and check in was very quick. All the staff were very friendly and attentive and from what I saw of their interaction with the Bride and Groom and other guests, it was clear their only concern was for their comfort and enjoyment. All the staff were smiling and it seemed they were enjoying the day, as much as everyone else. Incredibly relaxed, but in a professional manner. The food was amazing, both for the wedding and breakfast the day after. The building and grounds itself is incredible. A perfect place for a wedding and steeped in history. I’m only sorry time did not allow me to nose around more! If you’re planning a wedding in this neck of the woods, I would highly recommend you give this your consideration.

Stunning venue, amazing staff, special thanks to Jo, and Sam Wedding coordinators, we could not have done it without you. So many accommodations were made for us and our wedding, changes last minute due to weather (hottest day of the year so far). The venue has lovely rooms, the Beatrice suite was just amazing, and the evening DJ rocked the dance floor. An incredible day for our wedding, thank you to everyone who made it possible! Xx
Dear Sam, Tash, Stuart and Zoe, it’s impossible to express how grateful we are for your support and generosity in helping to make our day happen. You really did save our wedding and help to make it so incredibly memorable. You all went above and beyond, and we just can’t thank you enough. Sending so much love.
– Margaret and Simon,
The Ravenswood have been an absolute lifesaver and genuinely mind blowing at how accommodating they have been and done everything possible for my clients who had to find a new venue 10 days before their big day! Taking a wedding for 130 guests who literally had all their plans shattered. Through all the stress and tears from my clients, The Ravenswood rescued their big day and created an amazing day for them yesterday and working with all the requirements that we needed to rescue the wedding. You guys totally ROCK! Thank you, thank you, thank you x”

We got married at Ravenswood ten years ago yesterday (10th June). Came back to the venue today for lunch to celebrate and we had such a lovely time and brought back so many happy memories for us. The food was absolutely delicious, and the staff were all so friendly. We enjoyed walking around the grounds and been a wonderful way to celebrate our Anniversary. Thank you for the balloon too, was a nice surprise!
– Jo Bridger
We got married at The Ravenswood in June 2016 (following my parents getting married there 25 years ago) and I cannot recommend the venue enough. We had such a perfect day and so many of our guests commented and said it was one of the best weddings they have attended and said what a wonderful venue it is. The grounds are beautiful, and the staff were so attentive and polite. Annie and her team were absolutely fantastic and made sure our day ran exactly as we had planned!! I am a complete control freak normally but not once did I feel the need to step in – Annie was always one step ahead! I cannot thank her and her team enough, it is a day we will always remember!! I wish we could do it again!!!
– Chloe Flemming
We got married here in August 2016, we fell in love with the venue and the grounds first, but after meeting the team there we loved it even more. They were fantastic in helping with all the finishing details of our wedding and made our day stress free! They really took on board every details we wanted and made our day perfect!!! Not to mention how amazing the food is here our guest still talk about our food and how good the DJ was! Thank you for everything!

We had our wedding reception at the Ravenswood on the 27th June 2014 and I can honestly say it was the most magical experience of our lives. The venue, the food and just the atmosphere of the place was amazing. We all stayed over and the breakfast the next morning was also wonderful. Such fond memories of the day I married my best friend.
– Kelly Venn
My Son chose the Ravenswood for his wedding on Saturday 16.6.2018. Jo, Sam and James and all of the team did a fantastic job. Attention to detail and nothing too much trouble. They were able to marry outside in the small chapel which was very special. We had a lot of children in our party to organise and cater for and that was done without any fuss. My daughter also got married here five years ago. The atmosphere, the grounds, the building itself all add to the perfect wedding venue. Picture opportunities are endless inside and out. Thank you to everyone who was part of our celebration on Saturday and who worked so hard to make the day as perfect as could be.

My husband and I got married here 5 years ago now (when it was still with the previous owners) and had the most amazing day! So we were over the moon when my brother decided to hold his wedding here too. We were very excited to actually attend someone else’s wedding and see it from another view! Well, it did not disappoint!! It was the most magical day! The getting ready room was beautiful (this wasn’t here when I got married). The food was amazing, and the staff were not only very helpful and spot on with their service, but also friendly, smiley and chatty too (especially the evening staff behind the bar). Everyone had the most wonderful day! The bride and groom were treated like royalty and their every need catered for. Taking on such a big venture must have been a very scary thing, but I have to say, the new owners made it the perfect day! And dare I say…almost better than ours � Well done to all the staff at the Ravenswood and congrats to my brother and his new wife! What a way to start married life.
Me and my partner got married at the Ravenswood on Saturday just gone the 16/6/18. I am very emotional even writing this review as me, my new wife and our guests where treated like royalty throughout the whole day. All the events leading up to the day like food tasting etc where equally as amazing. The grounds are breath-taking, and We are 100% sure that if we used another venue it would have never ever been as good as it was. The attention to detail was spot on and every little need was catered for. We had lots of children and they were all looked after as with as much attention and care by the staff as the adults. Me and lots of the guests stayed the night and all of them said how amazing the rooms where. The breakfast was so so good and had something for everyone and was all quality well cook food I went up for seconds and thirds, the only negative thing I can say about our whole experience was that we had to go home, I could have stayed for days. Thank you so much to all the staff for making our day and stay so special (I ended up crying writing this #memories)
My husband and I got married here on the 2/6/18 we had the best day at the best venue ever! Sam you were perfect, and we couldn’t of got married here without you. You have some amazing staff, Jo was great and had everything completely under control and it wouldn’t of been as perfect without her. Unfortunately, I can’t remember the name Of the main waitress that looked after us from
Dinner all the way to the last drink in reception but she is an absolute credit to the Ravenswood. Nothing was too much trouble and the venue and grounds are absolutely incredible. Makes me a little teary thinking about how perfect it all was and how that was down to this venue and all its staff. Can’t thank you enough for saving this little gem Sam! Thanks everyone! Highly recommended without a shadow of a doubt. Love to you all, Mr and Mrs Clarke
My wife and I got married on 11th April this year and had the most perfect and amazing experience at The Ravenswood. From the very beginning Sam and the team worked with us to make our dream day come true within a very limited budget. Our day went without a hitch; the food was gorgeous (so much so that people are still talking about it!), the weather allowed us to get married outside and the grounds looked breathtaking in our photos. Everyone commented on how stunning the venue is and how lucky we were to find it, and we couldn’t agree more. From the very first time we looked at the venue we couldn’t picture our day being anywhere else and the Ravenswood will forever hold a place in our journey as a newly married couple. Thank you so much, from Shannon & Katrina
AMAZING! We got married here on Saturday and what a beautiful venue. All the staff were so friendly and absolutely incredible from start to finish going above & beyond to meet our expectations leading up to and making sure our Special Day was a complete success. The bridal suite is beautiful, food was fantastic, and the grounds are absolutely breath taking. We would highly recommend The Ravenswood for events and especially weddings! We loved every second of it and we can’t wait to come back to this Stunning Venue to Celebrate our 1-year anniversary as husband & wife.
I’m not sure where to start in thanking Sam, Annie, Jo and all the team at the Ravenswood, you took on our wedding when we had to change venues with only 6 weeks’ notice and were absolutely amazing- you took a lot of the stress away in the lead up to the day and went out of your way to help as much as possible. On the day everything was perfect, it all ran smoothly, and the venue looked stunning. Thanks to you we have amazing memories of our big day which we will treasure forever. All of our guests have commented what a fantastic day it was too. Can’t recommend this venue enough!! Thank you SO much, Emma & Alex
