We had our wedding at Northcourt in September and it was simply wonderful. The house is a perfect venue for a relaxed and intimate wedding; so many of our guests commented that it felt like a great house party, and that's exactly what we wanted! James was incredibly helpful throughout and put up with my incessant questions. From ladder availability to dimensions of windows, James was happy to come back to anything I put to him! Thank you for a perfect day �

We had a brilliant holiday, the house was perfect for a large group with small children, loads of rooms meant that the children had space to play whilst the adults could have a toy free lounge. The bedrooms were lovely with so many en suites, gorgeous kitchen with amazing welcome basket. The games room was a hit with all ages and the paddock out front was lovely to play on too. Thank you, we'll be back! x
