Firstly i do not normally bother writing reviews, however we were totally in love with Millbrook as soon as we arrived. We wanted to run away and have a civil ceremony, all we knew of was Gretna Green but didn't want a conveyor belt wedding. I stumbled upon the Secret garden whilst searching on-line. On arrival we were met and shown around by Mandy who was lovely and very friendly. The secret garden was top shelf in every way, it has been finished to a very high standard as is the rest of the estate. The staff are very accommodating and nothing is to much hassle. We were wed in the conservatory of the secret garden which is very intimate and romantic as they set the scene for the occasion just right.This couldn't have gone as well without the help of Linda and her husband,thank you both. We later had private dining served to us in the summer house which is a must as the food tasted divine, a nice log fire in the background, candle lit inside and out and our choice of romantic music. To round of our stay we met the owners Bob and Kate, a lovely couple who must be very proud of what they have achieved at Millbrook.
If you are looking to get away for a nice relaxing break or a run away wedding we highly recommend Millbrook, especially the secret garden.You will not be disappointed, so many excellent reviews cant be wrong.
Rob and Nicole.
