Beautiful Location, Beautiful Ceremony
Cressbrook was the ideal location. As soon as I saw it, we had to book it: the hills, the timeless hall, the cottages and dog-friendly venue, all of it was a must for me. Throughout the process we were in contact with Emily who was wonderful in helping us plan - especially when it came to COVID and the worries we had about rescheduling. In the end, we postponed our bigger ceremony and were able to book a small ceremony room for the date we had originally booked. The decor was gorgeous, and Emily was an amazing help throughout the day and great with our photographer. I couldn't have imagined having a wedding in any other place.

Unbelievable Service and Fantastic Venue
I should have had my wedding last June but due to Covid we have had to reschedule. Emily and all of the team at Cressbrook have been unbelievable nothing has been too much trouble, they even let me pencil in a couple of back up dates. I actually cant say enough good things about Cressbrook and the lovely people who run it, but if you book your wedding there you will certainly not regret it! Its pretty hard to put in writing how fantastic they are! Given the horrible year the wedding industry have had they have still made the experience stress free and i know when i eventually get around to getting married they will make sure that the day is perfect.

It was the most amazing day!
We got married here on 6th May and it was the most amazing day! The service and staff were incredible- nothing was too much trouble and they did everything they could to make the day wonderful. There is a very flexible approach so we could do as much or as little as we wanted in terms of setting up etc. Cressbrook is the perfect venue for anyone who doesn't want a package wedding- every wedding they do is unique and individual. We cannot rate the team and venue enough! Seriously look no further!! The gardens and views are outstanding and our wedding photographer was spoilt for choice! We took a lot of the cottages on site for the wedding party and family - the views were breathtaking. We will definitely come back for a visit! Thank you so much!!

I don’t even know where to start, I know how everyone says your wedding day is the best day of your life but it truly was and I don’t think it would of been with out the amazing team at Cressbrook from me constantly emailing Emily who was perfect and helped no end to the kitchen staff, the bar staff and even the ladies who were setting out the tables individually wiping all the glasses you were all amazing and helped me and Nick enjoy are day, Bobby is amazing and when she showed us round we just knew it was perfect for us she told us different ways to keep costs down depending on our budget, how we can dress the venue and what looks nice, Thank you all for your hard work you we’re all amazing and I’d recommend anyone who is considering to look round to do so the gardens and scenery are spot on and the staff are ace. A Massive thank you to the Cressbrook team once again !!!!
