Best wedding venue!
I'm not really sure how to start with this because there are just so many wonderful things to cram into this review. From the moment Ed and I met Paul and Alan last September when we came to see Saltcote Place for the first time as a potential wedding venue, we fell in love with everything. Of course Saltcote Place is stunning, the views are unrivalled and the rooms are luxuriously decororated with exquisite taste, but what really sealed the deal was Alan and Paul. Their knowledge and humour put us instantly at ease and we knew straight away that our wedding was in excellent hands. Fast forward nine months, several visits and plenty of emails and we arrived at our wedding weekend which exceeded all expectations. All of our guests commented on the beautiful location, the sun came out and we were treated to the best weekend of our lives. Paul and Alan were everywhere, checking in on us, looking after our guests, following up on our late band, ensuring the caterers were on top of everything and making everyone feel like nothing was too much trouble. Turns out Alan is a devil on the dance floor, Paul is just the kindest person I've ever met and them both as a team are a completely unstoppable force. Thank you for all you did, we will be forever indebted, but I do hope you had as much fun as we did! Xx

A fairy tale from start to finish
We stayed at Saltcote place as part of a wedding party and it was just perfect. The house is exquisitely decorated and the gardens were immaculate. Paul and Alan were fantastic hosts catering to your every need from safety pins for frocks to the best post wedding breakfast in the stunning kitchen! Would definitely recommend for your next celebration!

Perfect venue, settings and facilities
Sam and I are slowly coming round from our big day but wow thank you both so much for making it so special. It really was so amazing I can't thank Saltcote Place enough. The food was perfect, the views stunning and we had more than we could have hoped for. Would recommend Saltcote Place to anyone. The additional accommodation within a few minutes walk was also perfect for our guests.

The perfect venue
“Wedding Perfection" - We held our wedding on 25th October. We agreed, as did all our guests, that the whole celebration simply could not have gone any better. Paul and Alan make this location quintessentially English and, for us, unique. We cannot recommend this beautiful location highly enough. We were able to enjoy every single aspect of our day without any concerns. The accommodation, bedrooms and bathrooms are luxurious and spacious and worked perfectly for our party over the wedding weekend. Nothing was too much trouble. My wife and I would happily recommend Saltcote Place to anyone considering a celebration to remember

Superlatives are woefully inadequate
“Superlatives are woefully inadequate to describe this beautifully unique venue - We booked Saltcote for our wedding as all the other venues paled into significance against this shining example. The building and grounds are beautifully presented and superbly well maintained, not to mention the stunningly well presented rooms and suite. Perfect to relax and explore Rye at your leisure.”
