Can't wait to return for our anniversary!
My husband and I got married here at the weekend. Where to begin! Everything was perfect, Lauren & Josh are amazing at what they do. Nothing was too much trouble and went above and beyond, through planning of our wedding day, the night before, the day itself, and after. Food was outstanding, staff were outstanding, this truly is a hidden peaceful gem in a busy town. A number of our guest have said they will be back privately, and I cant wait to return for our anniversary

Cannot thank you enough...
My daughter and husband have just had their wedding reception here. All our family stayed here. Our room was very spacious. The gardens are delightful, the house itself is goeorgous and the staff were great. Staff went over and beyond for us all. The wedding planner and hotel manager made sure the wedding went smoothly allowing family and freinds to enjoy this splended celebration. Chefs produced fantastic food for wedding meals. This was a lovely hotel in a tranquil location by the river and very quiet. This venue gave the wedding party the exact experience that was asked for. I cannot reccomend The Cosener's house enough.

Great organisation
Lauren, Just to thank you and all the staff at Cosener's for what was a very successful occasion. Everyone said what a lovely venue it was, and how good the food and helpful the staff. Please thank the chef particularly for the Portuguese tarts, which many people commented on and said how good they were. I know it was a special effort, and we're very grateful. I know we were lucky with the weather, but the garden and the games were a big hit with the children, and contributed a great deal to everyone's enjoyment. And thank you to you personally for making it all run so smoothly.

Thank you so much!
Lauren, thank you so much for all your help with arranging our wedding day celebrations. All went well and we had a lovely day. Your guidance and advice were invaluable. Thank you for being so lovely. All of the staff are kind, courteous and very helpful but we'd like to give special mention to the chef's for the delicious meal they prepared for us (and the excellent breakfast!) and also to Eliso and the waiting staff who looked after us so well on the day! - Our Bride and Groom I am emailing you to thank you and your colleagues for the wonderful time you organised for us last Sunday. We found everyone so friendly and helpful; thank Bogoush especially for the wonderful food. We hope everyone has the wonderful wedding experience we had at the Cosener's House.
