Arrived 12.15 slightly early as wedding started at 2pm. The outside had a tudor look to it and inside I believe Edwardian. Lovely big open fire place and high ceilings and an elegant feel with cosy sofas. We asked if our room was ready as it does say rooms from 2pm and to our delight it was. I think we had a twin room number 18. The room was lush. The bed felt comfortable and the scenery looking through the window enchanting. We got changed for the wedding, the room felt a little hot but the standing fan worked efficiently.
Downstairs I ordered a sandwich as we were not due to eat until 4pm and a little pricey at £8 but worth the treat. The staff are friendly and nothing seems too much trouble.
The wedding room was nice and the bride with her big smile would enhance any such room. It was a civil service not too long or short. The light refreshment after were a surprise and plenty of choice.
The reception room was also lovely and the table layout nicely presented. The meal again was appertizing and we all had a chuckle on our table with the bird cages and perhaps the wine helped too.
Later we popped up to change for the evening do but not long as my friend suggested as she didn't wish to miss anything. The dj was good plenty of variety of music and he did help make the special couple enjoy themselves and encourage the guests to dance too.
The food again was sufficient I had eaten enough really but those bacon buttys were hard to resist trying one and a couple of chips. The sausage ones also looked nice and desserts.
I had a cosy night sleep and it was a treat to have a tv in the bedroom and no kids to change the channel. Good job the fan was working!
Next day I had a shower and I do like their bathrooms. Breakfast was from 8 and I was glad as I wish to depart promptly for the rugby match in Wrexham.
Whilst I was waiting for my friend to finish off the receptionist or manager went on to tell me about the history and how alot of people whom have met there went on and got married at the venue. I secretly hoped my friend may of met someone special too but I am not sure how that has worked out. Shame as I can't help but feel the magic here as the place feels full of charm, character and romance just like watching Downton Abbey.
Next time I hope to go there with my family and enjoy the lovley grounds they have and I believe my partner would like the course fishing. A treat perhaps or they do lovely afternoon teas that I must try soon.
