Customer Reviews

My husband and I had our wedding here and it was truly the most special day! Everything about the day was perfect and staff went above and beyond to make us and all our guests welcome. I personally have lovely childhood memories of Rufford, and now I have some even more special ones to remember! We would highly recommend Rufford Mill as a wedding venue, Carmel and the coordination team made everything so easy and we wouldn't have changed a thing. Thanks so much.

thank you for your review Lucy , it was lovely to be part of your special day , wishing you both a life time of happiness together xx

Rufford Abbey's response

We had the most wonderful wedding ceremony and reception here on 28.12.19. Demi and the team provided a faultless service right from when we met them at the open evening! On the day they were so helpful and attentive we could not have asked for more. It was fantastic value for money too. Thank you so much for making it such a special day xxx Helen & Tim
