Customer Reviews

Dear Anna. Well what a wedding day we had. It was absolutely AMAZING and we have you to thank for that. Honestly you made our day so special and rememberable, you were unbelievable. Olivia and I can’t thank you enough for how you treated us. You were all over everything and really kept us at calm and at ease. Everyone has been saying how great the food was, how nice the venue was and also how pro active you wear. You definitely stood out and people could recognise what a tremendous job you did on the day. Again from the bottom of our hearts we thank you for giving us such a special wedding day. When we get our photos back we will send you one over. Good luck for the future, Kind regards, Mr & Mrs Jansz-Baker

Good morning Anna, I just wanted to reach out and say thank you for all your incredible help and support for our wedding day. You made the day run so smoothly and kept everyone in check! You and the rest of the team at Rockbeare are incredible. The venue was absolutely perfect but you made the wedding day to run calmly so we could just relax and enjoy and we did not have to worry about a thing! Everything about our day was perfect, we loved the venue so much and had so many wonderful comments about how brilliant it was. The rooms were perfect, the food was incredible, thank you for providing me with non-alcoholic 'cocktails', I don't think James ever had an empty hand! Right from the day we first visited the venue the communication has been brilliant, the whole process of booking and planning was so easy, Helen was amazing! I will be forever grateful for all of you, but Anna mainly to you, you are wonderful! Thank you probably won't ever be enough, but thank you! I hope you enjoy some of our photos! Thank you again. Georgia & James x

We had our dream wedding at Rockbeare Manor on Thursday and we wanted to send a huge thank you to each and everyone of you, for making our day so stress free and perfect. Cameron, you were incredible, your professionalism and talent shone on the day. So many of our guests gave compliments to you personally and really sang your praises. You talked us through everything, what was happening next and what we needed to do. Your organisation was impeccable. You really put our minds at ease and really looked after us. You're absolutely fabulous at what you do and we would recommend you to anyone!! Thank you to you all at Rockbeare Manor for an incredible day.

We had our wedding on the 2nd April 2022. We had the most incredible day. Helen, our wedding coordinator was amazing, we dealt with her from the start and she was there on the day. Having the same person throughout the wedding planning and on the big day made a massive difference as she really knew how we wanted everything. Helen and her team couldn’t have done anymore for us, always making sure we had drinks, and making sure everything ran on time and that we were happy with everything. The day was amazing and was everything we dreamed off and more. It ran so smoothly with no glitches. It was the perfect day and that’s thanks to Helen and the teams professionalism and service. Our guests have been telling us how smooth the day went and that it was the perfect venue. The food was amazing too, superbly served. The accommodation was beautiful too, spacious and luxurious, wish we could have stayed longer. We can’t fault anything. Wish we could do it all again.

Our wedding was what could only be described as perfection, the whole process (which thanks to COVID was a lot longer than initially planned) was seamless. Helen and the team went above and far far beyond to ensure that we had the wedding of our dreams, nothing was too much to ask and all our needs were catered too. The service and food was impeccable and we honestly cannot thank all of you enough, thank you for truly giving us the day that only dreams are made of, thank you all so much 🖤

We had our wedding day just over a month ago on 25th March and wanted to send a huge thank you to Davy, Anna, Aimée and all and the fantastic team at Rockbeare, not only for the day itself, but also the long run up since booking back in 2019. The communication has been great, we are so thankful for how everything has been handled with the postponements after what must have been a very difficult time in the hospitality industry. We could not have wished for a better day and feel so lucky to have had the first outdoor ceremony of the year. We had so many compliments from our guests about the beautiful venue, the quality of the food, the slick running of the day and attentive nature of the staff. Thank you once again. Best wishes, George and Phuong Elsworth

Andy and I would like to thank Aimee, Davy and the entire Rockbeare team for making our wedding reception at Rockbeare Manor so amazing. Perfect setting, excellent food, gorgeous rooms and outstanding service. Our day was perfect and every single one of our 115 guests agree! Magical. Thank you.

We got married at Rockbeare yesterday (!) and would highly recommend. From start to finish,the staff were amazing (especially during these uncertain Covid times) and made the day flow seamlessly. The Manor is beautiful and many of our guests complimented how lovely it was. The food was also amazing, we could not fault anything. Thank you so much to the whole team but a special shout out to Anna who was our coordinator on the day and Helen who helped us throughout (amidst all the Covid chaos). Thank you! 😊

We wish to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our daughter's wedding such a special day. You and your staff were excellent - we cannot praise you highly enough. All the arrangements went off without a hitch and were exactly what we had been hoping for. The food was superb, delicious and beautifully served. The accommodations were fantastic - luxurious and spacious (we wished we could have stayed longer!), and the rooms used for the wedding and reception were exceptional. All of our guests commented that it was the best wedding, and the best venue they had been to, and we echo those sentiments - we simply cannot think how the day could have been improved. So, once again, thank you - you have our eternal gratitude.

I would like to offer you and your team, a very special thank you for everything you did to make the wedding on Saturday such a wonderful occasion for everyone who attended but especially for Charlotte and Ben. They were blown away with the whole thing and exceeded even their expectations. Everything was perfect and Cameron was a star, nothing was too much trouble and he was in total control throughout. The food from canapés through to desserts was delicious and service and attention to detail 5 star. In summary, a day which will live in our memories forever, again a big thank you.

Just a message to say a GREAT BIG THANK YOU from Karen and I. We were absolutely delighted with how the day was managed and with how accommodating and professional all the staff were on the day. The venue itself is gorgeous, but it can only fulfil it's potential with a great team... and the team you have is absolutely fantastic. All of our guests had nothing but positive things to say... from the setting to the food, from the accommodation to the staff. With all of our hearts, THANK YOU.

I just wanted to drop you an email to say we can't thank you all enough for the incredible day yourself and the Rockbeare team provided for myself and Harry on October 10th. The months since have flown by, but we keep looking back and thinking that we honestly couldn't have asked for a better day. Everything ran so smoothly, the food was out of this world, and the staff were so kind. We feel so privileged to have had our wedding with you and will forever cherish the memories.

Dear Helen, and all the team at Rockbeare, Wow. Where do we even begin? We want to say a huge thank you to each and every one of you at the wonderful Rockbeare Manor team. We had the most incredible day with you on our wedding day, 9th July 2021. It was perfect, (despite the things we could not control for!) and undoubtedly the best day of our lives. The uncertainties of the last 18 months have been very difficult for the wedding industry, but the team at Rockbeare have been relaxed, flexible and so reassuring during this time. Thank you so much. Helen, you have been so wonderful since day one when you showed us around on a virtual viewing in Spring 2020. Nothing has ever been too much trouble (despite our many questions!) and you have been professional, easy to contact and so approachable throughout the process. The professionalism of the entire team on the day was incredible and surpassed all expectations. We would specifically like to say a massive thank you to Cameron who calmly talked through an alternative route to the venue for my brothers over the phone, who got lost and stuck in the backed up A30 traffic (after the big road traffic accident) with my Gran (our oldest guest!) and auntie. He undoubtedly saved the afternoon, and demonstrated amazing initiative and leadership. We are so grateful. He also featured in my dad’s father of the bride speech - my parents were so impressed and grateful for his help. The kitchen staff dealt with a 90 minute delay due to this traffic complication. This must have been so stressful for the chefs. Despite this the team coped perfectly with the shift in timescales. The food was absolutely exquisite and so many of our guests have been complementing it to us. Please extend our deepest thanks to the chefs. The ballroom looked absolutely beautiful and the photo and video set up that you organised for us was perfect. The rooms were so wonderful, comfortable and luxurious. The house is absolutely stunning and we just wish we could have spent more than the one night there! Every single aspect of the day, evening and following morning was amazing. Rockbeare Manor is the perfect wedding venue and this is down to the people that run the show. Thank you so so much to all of you from the bottom of our hearts.

I just wanted to email you to say a massive massive thank you for everything you did on the lead up to our wedding. We were blown away with the service and how attentive you and all the staff were. We just had the best day and even though it was meant to have been 120, we actually wouldn’t have changed a thing. It felt so smooth running and that was a thanks to you and your team, so thank you so much.

30th October 2020 was the day that our daughter Emma eventually married Matt at Rockbeare Manor. I am just looking at photos and it’s reminded me what a wonderful day we had. I’d like to thank all the team at Rockbeare Manor for making it such a special day. Andy and Aimee went out of their way to ensure everything went smoothly. Little things meant a lot; among many things I was grateful to Aimee for parking our car for us and to Andy for accompanying me down the long hall to the ceremony. Jess was great throughout the day. Thank you so much.

We would highly recommend Rockbeare Manor as a wedding venue. We had initially planned our wedding for April but due to covid had to postpone our wedding day to October with a bigger party planned for later in the year. Rockbeare have been so helpful and understanding every step of the way as our plans continued to change and develop as guidance changed. Our wedding day itself was so special and anyone that is worrying about having just 15 guests shouldn’t worry at all: the staff at Rockbeare and the beautiful grounds meant our day was incredible even with limited numbers. The food was absolutely excellent and one of our guests had several allergies and was just absolutely over the moon at the food that was provided for her as well. Our guests loved how stunning the rooms were as well. We are so grateful to Jessica in particular for all of her hard work on the day in making sure everything ran smoothly. Thank you so much also to Aimée and Helen for all of the arranging leading up to the big day as well.

We honestly had the best day with our family at Rockbeare Manor, despite the many changes to plans and our wedding day being the 3rd wedding date for us but we are so happy that we decided to proceed with our wedding this year, the intimate setting at Rockbeare Manor was so special and we couldn’t have asked for a nicer team to look after us. We both said after the day that in hindsight we would have planned a more intimate day from the start as it couldn’t have been more perfect and would just love to say a huge thank you to you all for your support from the planning through to the big day itself. For us, the decision of whether to go ahead with an intimate wedding this year or hold off for a couple of years ended up being an easy decision when we sat down to weigh up our options and said to ourselves that the reason we were having our wedding was to get married and become husband and wife. We knew we could have a big party at some point in the future but the most important part of our special day was getting married with our closest family and starting the rest of our lives together. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day than our wedding day at Rockbeare Manor in October, if you’re gut is telling you to go for it, go with it you won’t regret it!

Thank you so much for all your hard work over the last few months to help us make our day a reality. We truly dodged a bullet with the 30/15 people issue and we had the most incredible day with our lovely friends and family that didn’t feel covid different at all. The weather, food, rooms and decorations were just sublime - (breakfast was an extra lovely treat especially), and all your servers and staff could not have been more lovely and attentive. Our guests all ADORED Rockbeare.

Dear all at Rockbeare Manor As the mother of the bride I just want to say an enormous thank you for the lovely wedding reception we all enjoyed. Despite the reduced numbers and the restrictions due to covid, it didn't spoil things at all and everyone has said what a happy day it was. Couples having to have different weddings to normal due to the current restrictions can be assured that they can still have a lovely experience at Rockbeare Manor.

From when I was young I always dreamed of having the typical large fairytale wedding. I was due to get married in May 2020, then due to Covid we had to postpone until September. Working together with our wedding venue Rockbeare Manor, we decided to split our wedding into two parts. This was honestly the best decision I could ever have made. In September our guest numbers were limited to 30 - where I once would have hated this idea as it was not what I envisaged, it ended up being exactly what I wanted without even knowing it! Our wedding venue was absolutely amazing through the whole process. It was so much more intimate and I was able to spend the time talking to all my guests without missing anyone out. I was treated like a princess for the whole day and every member of staff was attentive and caring. I would advise any bride getting married during Covid to just do it! Marriage is about the love for your partner and sharing your day with those most special to you. Having a smaller wedding meant that we didn't get 'those second aunties that you have never met' - it was an event with all those closest to us, which I will cherish forever. Aimée and Helen kept in touch during the whole process and even called us just to see how we were feeling about everything going on. Next year, we will hopefully be having our Wedding 'part two', with all those that were not able to attend this year. After the wedding I soon got all the wedding blues, but this quickly vanished. I get to wear my wedding dress TWICE!!! I get to experience the amazing food-which honest to god was the best food I have ever eaten in my life and I get to return to the glorious grounds which were all well kept and beautiful. I never thought I would ever have two weddings and what started out as disappointment is now appreciation and pure excitement. I am so unbelievably lucky to be able to experience the best day of my life for the second time. If I could advise any bride considering doing this. Please, please, please do it as you will not regret it!! I literally can not wait for next year, where I have managed to have the best of both worlds. One that is intimate, romantic and special in its own way, one that is large, full of music and dancing. How many brides get to say that they got to experience two weddings to the same partner?! In regards to Covid restrictions, the team made sure to make the experience as magical as it could possibly be. Whilst they made sure to maintain guidelines, providing hand gel and exceptionally clean facilities, they also made sure that it was your "typical" wedding experience. I do not feel that I missed out in any way whatsoever, if anything I feel like I got a better experience than most. My last bit of advice would be to make it your own. Due to the restrictions put in place, all our traditional wedding ideas of what a wedding "had to include" went out the window. Please do not panic as whenever you do get married here, it will be an amazing experience which you will never forget. Philippa and Michael

Dear all at Rockbeare, We want to say a huge thank-you to everyone involved in our special day. Our wedding was more than perfect, it was everything we had wished for and more! Your venue and team were out of this world... words can't describe how helpful and amazing you all were. You all work so hard and deserve a lot of credit! The manor itself is like something out of a fairytale! Cameron - What can I say... You blew us away with your kindness, eagerness to make our day perfect and how much you cared for us. Nothing was a problem or too much trouble, you made us feel like we were the only 2 people in the world that mattered, we are really grateful you were involved in our day. You remained very calm considering how busy the bar was! A massive thank-you to you! Davy was also a star and again nothing was a problem! He made us feel at ease and that everything was under control. Food - We had a lot of compliments from our guests saying how amazing the food was, and we totally agree! Everything was so tasty and freshly made. The canapés were insane! A lot of our guests have said its the best wedding they've ever been too - and this is all down to your amazing team! Many thanks, Mr & Mrs Onslow

Good evening Davy, Myself and Joe just wanted to say a massive thankyou to you and your team! You yourself looked after us from the very first meeting at the venue, all the way to our special day, and we can’t thankyou enough for that. All our guest have said how amazing the staff were in looking after us all and making everything perfect! A massive thankyou needs to go to Cameron, he made sure me and joe were always happy and had everything we needed! Nothing seemed like it was to much trouble! Excellent member of staff! The food was so yummy! No one had a bad word to say about it and the burgers, guest were saying they have never had a burger that’s tasted so good! Thankyou for excellent communication leading up to the wedding and making everything so calm and clear. Once again, Thankyou very much and we will be recommending rockbeare at any given chance. Regards, Mr & Mrs Coughlin.

Dear Davy, Where do we even begin... Rob and I cannot thank you, Helen, Cameron, Johnny and all of the team, enough for making our wedding day so special! Everything right from our first visit to Rockbeare Manor, until after breakfast the morning following the wedding, was just amazingly perfect. The wedding day for us was completely stress free thanks to all of you. The team provided us with everything we needed, often before we even realised we needed it! You were always one step ahead of everything and we will be forever grateful. It goes without saying that Rockbeare Manor is a beautiful building, but the staff are what really make it. You all worked so hard, and such long hours!! You made us feel so welcome, nothing was too much trouble and you really went the extra mile to make us feel so special on our big day. We definitely have to say a big thank you to the chefs, I’m sure all our guests will agree that the food was so delicious!! An extra thank you to Cameron for organising chicken burgers at 1am - so glad we didn’t miss out on those, they were out of this world! So thank you again for being a part of our wedding day, it honestly was the best day ever! We wish we could do it all again. Hopefully we can be guests at another wedding at Rockbeare one day. Best wishes Becky & Rob x

Dear Davy and all of your wonderful staff, James and I would like to thank you for the smooth running of our seemingly perfect wedding day. You guys made it what it was, and we will be eternally grateful for your efforts, kindness and generosity. Everything you guys did for us was with grace. Cameron and Jonny were brilliant aswell! Cameron really looked after the bridal party in the morning, he treated us all like princesses and couldn’t do enough for us, it was so lovely as a bride to feel like nothing was too much effort. And of course it goes without saying, the help the lead up to the big day from Aimee, Helen and Jessica is also so appreciated and we are so grateful. Hopefully we see you all again soon as someone’s wedding guests! All the best to you all, the new Mr and Mrs Rees, Harriet and James xx

Hi Helen, I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and Cameron and all the staff that helped on Saturday. We really had the best day ever!! You and Cameron were so attentive and so amazing we can’t thank you enough. We had a lot of guests comment on how friendly and helpful you both were and obviously we agree. Thank you so much for making our day so so special and of course for all your help with everything, the whole set up looked perfect. The food was also so so lovely!! Everyone really enjoyed it! Couldn’t of wished for a better day. We really hope we get to attend someone’s else wedding at Rockbeare Manor so we can visit the beautiful venue again :) Thanks, Becca & Ryan.

We just wanted to say how much everyone enjoyed our wedding. We had the most amazing day and so many people said lovely things about Rockbeare Manor. It was as close to perfect as we could have wished for. The food was excellent and we were looked after really well and very attentively. In particular Jess and Cameron are an absolute credit to your team and we would like to thank them for being so helpful. We are sad it is all over, but are so happy with how well it went. We hope to visit again someday but for now we leave with happy memories.

Jess, we honestly cannot thank you and the Rockbeare staff enough! It was truly the best day of our lives! Everything flowed so smoothly and went off without a hitch! Every one of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue is, how incredible the food was and how fantastic the staff were and we agree one million percent!!

Hello from Mr and Mrs Cross! Now we're back to the normality of every day life, I wanted to reach out to say the biggest thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Rockbeare Manor was the perfect venue, there are no words to explain how pleased we were, and to be hosted by the most incredible people was a privilege. Jessica and Davy, we honestly couldn't have asked for more amazing hosts, thank you so very much to you and your team.... Special mention to Cameron for making our evening so special on Friday night too. From start to finish - your organisation, calming influence, patience and fun loving professionalism was incredible, on the most important day of our lives we couldn't have wished for more. You are a credit to Rockbeare and should be commended for your relentless hard work and understanding of what makes your guests happy. You were like magicians and Jessica, you were so incredibly kind to keep running around like you did on the big day! You were everywhere and no where at the same time, like a wonderful flitting fairy magician who made sure that everyone's day/evening was perfect but without being seen! I hope you are both well rewarded as you honestly are the best event planners/hosts we have ever had the pleasure to meet. I will highly recommend Rockbeare Manor to everyone, our guests all absolutely loved their time there too. Many said it was the best wedding venue they've ever been to. Thank you again and I wish you so much success in the future. Thank you once more, Caroline and Richard

We had our wedding at Rockbeare Manor in September. It is a beautiful old house that is well looked after and maintained, not only is it lovely to look at from the outside, it is very well decorated and spacious on the inside. The water feature in the garden is great to have photos taken by and the scenic view of the country side surrounding the manor also makes a wonderful backdrop. We had planned to have the ceremony outside but the weather forecast was looking like rain however the staff kept checking the forecast for us and in the end it was lovely sunny weather so we got to stay outside. The food we had chosen from their menu was delicious and we received many compliments from guests on the taste. They also catered really well to all the allergy and dietary requirements we had submitted to them. The Staff at Rockbeare really made all our hopes for the day come true, they were all very polite and ready to help whenever we needed them. Sophie, the event organiser, made us feel completely at ease and the day went extremely smoothly thanks to her. It is obvious that the staff at Rockbeare really do care about their clients and I'm glad I chose it as my wedding venue, a perfect venue for a perfect day.

On Saturday 18th January 2020 our daughter was married at Rockbeare Manor and Jessica looked after us and our guests for the celebrations. She worked continuously through the whole day and must be commended for her professionalism and friendliness along with her whole team. Thank you also to Davy and Cameron who looked after us on the Friday night when we had a family meal which was very special. We were very grateful for all the advice offered which was an enormous help and if anyone is considering the venue we strongly recommend taking them up on their suggestions. The venue, food and hospitality were perfect, we even had good weather allowing us to have canapes outside. Thank you for the most perfect day at such a beautiful venue. Mr & Mrs Edwards

We would like to convey our thanks to all the staff that helped to make James and Hannah’s wedding on the 22nd December 2019 so special. Nothing was too much trouble and it went perfectly. Jess was an absolute star, very organised and so good at suggestions if we weren’t sure. She is a real asset to your organisation. Perhaps you could convey to all the relevant staff involved with how pleased we were with how the occasion went.

Dear Aimee and the Rockbeare Manor team, Thank you so much for all your hard work that went into helping organise our wedding day. We had the best day we could possibly imagine. It all ran smoothly, the venue looked beautiful and the food was delicious. You were lovely, our parents have spoken about how nice you were and we also enjoyed all our interactions with you. You made planning a wedding a very easy, enjoyable experience. You made us feel listened to and valued plus you then put on the best day! It was lovely seeing everything we had discussed come together, from the garden games, the table tennis, to keeping us on track during the day. You're clearly very good at what you do. Our family loved the hot chocolate/coffee time after we had left and also said breakfast was very special. Thanks Aimee! Please could you pass on our thanks to the chefs too. We have had SO many people tell us "it was the best wedding food" they had ever had. It was all delicious and also looked beautiful. From the canapes through to the dessert buffet stand, it was brilliant. Our interactions with all staff were lovely, Simone, Andy and Helen, thank you. Tom and Jo x

We had the best day of our lives, the venue was stunning, staff professional, friendly and helpful, if I could do it all over again I would, absolutely amazing. Thank you!

Thanks Rockbeare for the most amazing wedding day in November! The day was perfect and everyone was so helpful, particularly Jess and Cameron on the day (everyone really!). We were able to bring our own touches to the venue and it's such a wonderful space. I hope we can attend a wedding at the Manor one day so we can enjoy it as guests! It will bring back very special memories. Holly and Rob x

We had our wedding held at Rockbeare Manor on the 29 Jun 19 on what turned out to be one of the hottest days of the year. The setting was absolutely perfect... The venue obviously speaks for itself, it’s absolutely stunning. But what makes Rockbeare so special is it’s staff - nothing was too much trouble for our incredible event manager Sophie, welcoming, friendly and super organised. She had us in the right place at the right time without ever feeling under pressure. By the end of the day she felt more like one of our guests than staff. Our family and friends over a month on are still commenting on the incredible venue, staff and food and it’s all being relieved through photos and videos now. It really was the best day of our lives and it is thanks to Rockbeare, Sophie and her wonderful team. Thank you!

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to Sophie and Cameron for everything you did for us during our wedding day (and in the lead up to it!). We had the most perfect day and it turned out exactly as we had hoped. So many of our guests commented on the amazing venue, delicious food and wonderfully helpful and attentive staff. No request from our guests was too much trouble for your team and the way they all conducted themselves helped make it as special as it was. We loved you guys getting involved with the photo booth, it was hilarious!

We had our autumn wedding a couple of weeks ago and the whole day was perfection. The communication from the wedding co-ordinators on the lead up to the day was great and they accommodated all of our (sometimes random) requests. On the day itself the staff worked seamlessly to ensure it all went smoothly, I can't thank the team enough! Guests kept commenting on how beautiful the venue was and how delicious the food was. Couldn't fault it. Thank you for creating our perfect wedding day, we just wish we could do it all over again! Mr & Mrs Rogers

Davy and Helen, I’m so sorry for the delay in this email but we’ve been on minimoon and just got back to London yesterday after a whirlwind of a week! What can I say! Thank you so so much for everything you both did to ensure we had the best wedding day ever! It far exceeded all of our dreams and expectations! Everything went so smoothly and effortlessly that we didn’t have to think about anything all day and could just be totally present in our wedding and we are hugely grateful to you both for that. Davy – you literally had everything covered! From making sure we had canapés during our photos, to bringing us a pasty at the end of the night – somehow knowing that we wouldn’t have had much of a chance to eat ourselves. Nothing was too much trouble and you were omnipresent from our arrival until we left the next day. Thank you so so much for everything – you were beyond incredible. Also, we have to mention the food which was insane! We’ve had loads of people say it was the best they’ve ever had at a wedding (I don’t think there was a single crumb of crème brulee left anywhere!) Thank you both so much for your help with setting up as well. The place just looked so beautiful – I was totally overwhelmed when I arrived so thank you for leading the suppliers and getting everything done so we could just chill and relax. And the effort that was made to ensure that the breakfast room was decorated and everyone ate together the next morning was such a lovely touch – it made the whole event feel extra special.

It's been a little while after our wedding now and we wanted to take this oppotunity to thank you and your team. You were brilliant! You were so helpful and attentive to us. You helped our guests and your team were fantastic in everything they did. The food was brilliant your burgers may have been the best ever. The venue, your efforts and your teams efforts were noticed by a number of guests who all said they were surprised at how good and how brilliant you were. We enjoyed our day so much and it was perfect. Thank you again.

Hi Helen, I just wanted to drop you a note, on behalf of Matthew & I, to say thank you for the wedding you enabled us to host yesterday. From start to finish everyone has been a dream to work with, Davy in particular. You and your team really do go over and beyond, and it showed, our guests were so impressed, as were we. Kind regards, Emma

We just want to say a HUGE THANK YOU for all of your help in the run up and our wedding day itself. We had the best day and would like to show our appreciation for the stunning venue and staff that all played such an important role in ensuring our day was perfect. Helen and Davy, you were really helpful throughout the booking/planning process and we really appreciated your support and advice. We felt in safe hands the whole time and ultimately had fun planning our day which could have been a very stressful process. Elizabeth, we cannot thank you enough for your hard work on the day. You worked so hard to get everything spot on - everything went without a hitch throughout both the day and evening and we felt your organisational skills and attentiveness were exemplary. Nothing was too much trouble and every detail was thought of. Your care and thoughtfulness didn't go unnoticed and we appreciate it so much - you were also an extremely calming influence when nerves were getting to us! We felt informed and looked after the whole time. The food was absolutely delicious on the day and did not disappoint. Food was really important to us and we could not fault any part of it. Everyone was, and still is, raving about it. Thank you all - we're hoping we get invited to another wedding up there so we can experience it all over again! Sophie & Lee Thomas x

We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for helping our wedding day (October 11th) run so smoothly - we had the most perfect day! It was such a smooth operation we almost forgot we were at a venue - it felt like a home. Every detail from the decorations to the food, to the staff to the running of the day was more amazing than we could have ever imagined. From the first day we visited Rockbeare Manor we knew that we wanted to get married there. The whole experience from planning through to the day itself was just flawless. I also want to thank Elizabeth for accommodating all of our requirements during the planning stages! So many of our guests were commenting on how great the venue, service, bedrooms and especially the food were! This is all thanks to the brilliant staff at Rockbeare Manor who we would like to thank so very much. We have so many lovely memories that we will cherish forever.

We had our wedding at Rockbeare in October. From the very beginning Aimee and her team looked after us and made us feel that nothing was too much trouble. On the day Stephanie excelled and looked after us and our guests so well. She was always one step ahead and was there late into the early hours and was up bright and breezy looking after us the following morning,still smiling! She made us feel like nothing was too much trouble and I know the guests really felt that she was a credit to the team. The food we dined on was delicious. We had the sharing platters, which was extremely sociable and meant guests could choose what they wanted to eat and they could then have as much or as little as they wanted of each dish. Many guests commented that it was the best food they have eaten at a wedding reception. From start to finish we were so well looked after. It couldn’t have been more perfect. Thank you all at Rockbeare Manor!

5 stars ***** Wow! we got married here Saturday 29.09.18 and we could not fault it one bit. The staff and event managers were outstanding. They really went that extra mile to make sure Jamie and I had the most perfect day. I can see why they are so busy as the venue is just perfection. Food was glorious and the rooms were breath taking. Thankyou so so much to everyone who helped make our day so perfect xxxxx

To Aimee and all your team at Rockbeare Manor We want to say a huge thank you for making our wedding day perfect. We had a fantastic day, our guests all commented on how beautiful the venue was. A special thank you to your chefs as the food was perfect on the day, we had a lot of chefs attending our wedding and they all commented on how good the food was. The day ran like clockwork and we have you to thank for this, we could not have asked for more. We wish you all the success in 2018 at Rockbeare Manor, we would recommend it as a venue to anyone.

What an INCREDIBLE venue and a FANTASTIC team...We got married at Rockbeare Manor on Saturday and we have to say that Aimee, Andy and their team made the day an absolute success. The venue is stunning, the food was amazing and the service was top-notch - we have had so many comments from our friends and family echoing these things. We genuinely couldn't have been looked after better. Thank you all for everything you have done - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Mr and Mrs Denslow
