We got married at Colehayes in 2015. It is a spectacular location and there is the availability to design your own wedding exactly as you want it,and if you fancy a swim in the lake. why not? It was ideal as it was local to family and I would be pushed to find a better venue elsewhere, without losing the personal touch. If you want have a very personalised wedding then this is definitely the location.

This venue is a dream! Being close to family and friends and creating a community for our special day was just what we wanted. The staff made everything super easy and helped whenever we needed them. Our guests and we loved it all.

We recently had a joint 50th birthday party here and it was fabulous! The setting and grounds are beautiful, the house has plenty of space and is very well equipped. We had quite a few children staying and they loved the games room in the basement and the swimming lake was a big hit; there was plenty of outdoor space for them to run around. Most importantly, the staff were excellent- they just quietly got on with setting up the tables, cooking the breakfast, manning the bar and clearing away and washing up, allowing us to relax and enjoy ourselves. Despite the grandeur of the surroundings it has a very homely, welcoming feel. No-one wanted to leave!

We have just returned from 3 nights at Colehayes Park where my daughter was married. The weather was wonderful. The location wonderful. The house ideal for a party of 70 odd staying with 50 more for the evening celebrations. The staff were always helpful and the facilities spot-on. Couldn’t recommend it enough. 10 out of 10

We got married here at the weekend and it was more than we could have dreamed of. Fantastic people, a beautiful sanctuary and so much fun. You can be as creative as you like. It's amazing having your own private mansion and land for the weekend. If you are getting married choose Colehayes! Quick before it gets booked up.

My daughter and her fiance booked Colehayes Park for the entire weekend (Fri to sun nights) for their wedding. It was a fabulous venue ! We were in the cottage, loads of family and friends stayed in the beautiful bedrooms in the house and some camped. Downstairs there were so many spacious rooms available for all -whether they wanted to dance at the ceilidh, drink in the bar or relax in the lounge . The staff were excellent from start to finish. They served up our buffet in a gazebo in the grounds immediately after the ceremony and then served the sit down meal at 5pm in the dining room, and manned the bar for us too. I cant recommend the hall highly enough.It was just perfect for the relaxed country wedding Beth and Rhys wanted and the DIY bit worked well. The wedding ceremony itself took place in the beautiful little gazebo in the grounds with all the guests sitting in the sunshine in the chairs provided by the hall..and transported to the bottom of the garden by our band of ushers ! The lake was a big attraction on the Sunday and quite a few brave souls..including me..went in !( We were blessed with a gorgeous sunny weekend. ) THANK you to all who made it such a perfect wedding !!!!

If you want a DIY wedding in one the most breath taking locations I have ever seen this is for you. Amazing staff made everything so easy and all my guests are demanding a 5 year anniversary party at Colehayes because they loved it so much!

In all honesty this was just the absolute perfect venue for our wedding. From first visit to the day itself Rebecca and her team made us feel completely at ease, nothing was too much trouble and their laid back demeanor was very appreciated. The venue itself is breathtaking, from the main house, to the cottage and the beautiful garden, which we were lucky enough to have in full bloom on our day. To top it off photos with our photographer by the lake in the evening was amazing. All of our guests are demanding a 5 year anniversary reunion at the same venue because they all loved it so much!

Myself and some friends attended a wedding here in July, and I can honestly say it was one of the most spectacular wedding venues I’ve ever had the pleasure of attending. The grounds are beautiful and lovely to walk around when you have free time, and taking a dip in the lake first thing in the morning definitely gets you ready for the day ahead! The staff are friendly and professional. I truly could not fault the weekend at all and very much look forward to visiting again

We attended a friend's wedding at Colehayes Park and absolutely loved. Everything added to the best and most gorgeous wedding we have ever been. The huge main house, the beautiful and well-maintained garden, the lake... Every corner was a great place for a photo, particularly in front of the incredibly amazing cork tree. Congratulations for the beautiful place.

I got married at Colehayes Park and had the most fabulous weekend. It allowed me to justify spending so much on a Wedding that I could hire the place for a long weekend and made it so convenient for me that all of my family could stay in one place and have it feel like their own home, not a hotel. We had the best time and there was literally nothing we could fault about the place Cork tree cottage too is so charming and well situated to enjoy the company of family or the British Countryside. Ellice and Rebecca and all the other staff really made us feel at home and helped in every way they could to make the whole weekend a wonderful success. Thank you and we will be returning!
