About Thornton Manor

Welcome to Thornton Manor; a grade II listed Elizabethan-style house built in the middle of the 19th century. With Four extraordinary venues set in an oasis of quintessentially British countryside.

The Manor House
Within the house there are three fabulous locations where we can stage wedding ceremonies. Whether you prefer the early Georgian-inspired Dining Room with its beautiful walnut paneling overlooking the lime tree avenues, or the stunning Music Room adorned with spectacular wall paneling, elaborate plaster work and period paintings, our beautiful house will simply take your breath away.

Waterside Pavilion
Located in the heart of our estate, our Waterside marquee is home to the most romantic and idyllic surroundings. Set amidst our beautiful woodland dell, this intimate venue exudes rustic enchantment and charm.

The Lakeside Marquee
Nestled beneath the tree-tops in our extensive grounds, the Lakeside Marquee promises tranquility for you and your guests. Overlooking the water and countryside beyond, our beautiful marquee makes the perfect setting for a romantic, outdoor wedding.

Walled Garden Marquee
Located within the historic walls of the original walled garden, this is the perfect venue to host large, traditional weddings.
Set within our secluded grounds and surrounded by two acres of Cheshire countryside, our Walled Garden Marquee can host between 200 and 2000 guests, making it one of the grandest wedding venues in the North West.
Our accommodation boasts original features, designed with complete luxury in mind. Thornton Manor offers 22 stunning manor house bedrooms, and 14 cottages and annexes accommodating up to 108 guests.

Customer Reviews

This was my son and daughter in laws dream. They were due to get married on a Saturday in May but due to corona virus their wedding was cancelled. The management at Thornton Manor refused to refund any monies and said they would offer an alternate date which was a Sunday in winter. As both my son and his partner are frontline NHS staff they could not accept a Sunday wedding as many of their guests who were work colleagues would not have been able to attend. They requested a Saturday in May in 2021 and even offered to pay extra if prices had increased but were told these dates were for new bookings only. My son requested a refund which they refused advising my son to claim through his wedding insurance and to rebook the new date with them once he had the refund saying this would be a ‘win win’. This was extremely stressful as my son and his partner had to cancel everything that was booked including caterers, photographer, florist music etc as they could not give anyone a rearranged date as they were unsure if their insurance would refund them. Throughout all communication management at Thornton manor were extremely unhelpful and often extremely rude. On one occasion the Manager, Phillip, told my son he was ‘very lucky’ working on the front line in the NHS as his job was secure ! My son and his partner did get a refund from their insurance and made the decision not to rebook with Thornton Manor due to the terrible way the Management had treated them. Thornton Manor refused to refund monies guests had paid in full for bedrooms in the Manor House meaning they still have this plus the 8.5k paid for the venue . PLEASE AVOID

Perfect Day in a Perfect Venue From first seeing the venue we instantly new that this was the place we were meant to get married. The Manor House and the gardens are simply stunning and didn’t compare to any other venue we had seen. It is the perfect setting for a wedding. From the initial consultation through to waking up the day after the wedding, we were well catered for and the staff at Thornton Manor could not have done enough for us. We had such an amazing day and Thornton Manor had a big part in that. Thank you to all at Thornton Manor. Date of stay: September 2019

Satisfied customer My daughter's wedding was held at the Waterside Pavilion...the organisation was incredible, staff fabulous, and the attention to detail was unbelievable. The accommodation was immaculate, food very good....a wonderful occasion made better by all involved. Thank you so much. Date of stay: October 2019 Room Tip: Not exactly a hotel...an event venue...good enough for the Prime Minister!!!

Manor House Wedding We got married here on the 18th October in the Manor House. I can’t even begin to explain how incredible all the staff are. Everything ran so smoothly, there were no hiccups or issues, and the staff were so attentive. Even down to the finer details like our supervisor ensuring our room was clean, curtains were shut and the heaters were on so when we went to bed after our incredible wedding day the room was perfect. They circulated the guest book, ensured all candles were lit, everything was absolutely perfect. The best wedding venue and I couldn’t recommend them enough. We’re forever thankful. Date of stay: October 2019

Fantastic Wedding in the House A dream wedding venue. The staff at Thornton Manor are exceptional. From our first visit and booking up to the big day everything was perfect. They take pride in what they do and they do it very well. We got married in the house on 12th October and received so many compliments from our guests about such a lovely venue. Having the whole house exclusively for the use of us and our guests was truly special. We can’t thank them enough. Date of stay: October 2019

Splendour indeed! Terrific place for a wedding, the rooms are gorgeous for any size of event. We stayed in one of the cottages in the grounds, very period and interesting. No wonder Boris Johnson chose this place to meet the Irish Prime Minister as its absolutely fabulous - who needs London when you have Thornton Manor, just great, made us feel royal.

Our wedding day I got married at Thornton Manor in November 2018 and I was very nervous in the lead up to the day, particularly as we had a lot of guests coming! I honestly couldn’t fault the staff for everything they did, the day ran smoothly, caterers were fantastic and the Lakeside Marque was the perfect venue. Thank you Thornton Manor! Date of stay: November 2019

Our Wedding Day We got married on 28.12.19 in the Manor House and had the most perfect day ever. On the run up to the wedding we were in regular contact with all of the wedding coordinators all of which were an absolute dream to work with. On the day of our wedding everything went amazingly, they even let me set up a day early due to there being no wedding in the day before which was fantastic. Rooms we stayed in were fantastic and really in keeping with the character of the venue, would highly recommend the gate house to stay in the night before. The Manor House- WOW! Everyone commented on how stunning the venue was and if you get married at Christmas like we did it is fully decked out with gorgeous decorations and Christmas trees. Every member of staff I dealt with was just fantastic and nothing was too much for them. Thank you Thornton Manor for the most amazing, stress free wedding day. Mr & Mrs Kenyon x
