Absolutely perfect
The Horn of Plenty is exceptional in every way. It is set in beautiful grounds, tucked away and is so peaceful and idyllic. We had an elopement wedding there a couple of days ago and it went very smoothly. Julie and Damien were our witnesses and also took some photos and video for us. The attention to detail was fantastic. The entire team of staff are so professional and courteous and polite! They were all a real credit to Julie and Damien. Special mention also to Mandy who was so friendly and just lovely to chat with! Nothing was too much trouble! Our room (3) was gorgeous and spacious. The balcony is huge. So is the bathroom! Everything at the hotel is so elegant and sophisticated and we were very impressed. The food is out of this world, served in a spacious dining room with excellent views over the gardens and valley beyond. There is also a lovely new terrace area to enjoy if the weather is good! The Horn of Plenty made our stay and wedding absolutely perfect and we will never forget it. We were sad to leave!! We hope to return one day to enjoy this very special oasis. Our sincere thanks to Julie and her entire hard working team for making our visit so very special and memorable!!

A wedding in COVID:
When we initially started to plan our Wedding at this beautiful venue, back In January 2020, we could not have predicted what would happen 8 weeks later: COVID to hold. We had always intended a small intimate wedding with 13 family members and the Horn of Plenty was not only a beautiful venue with an excellent reputation for an intimate wedding, but more importantly it gave value for money. On looking at a number of other venues we struggled with how they could charge so much for so little and seem to penalise you for wanting a small wedding. The wedding team at the Horn of Plenty listened to what we wanted, gave us suggestions and more that we ever expected. Then the COVID pandemic took hold resulting in uncertainty, and for many couples having to cancel or rethink their large and extravagant wedding. For us with having a small wedding there was a small chance it may go ahead. During this period of waiting , 'The Horn Of Plenty, kept us updated and reassurance that in the invent of it not going ahead they would work with us to find an alternative date. Leading up to the 23rd of July it became apparent that there was a high probability that our wedding could go ahead but with restrictions , again the team worked with us to find reasonable adjustments that would keep us and their staff safe but not compromising us from having the day that we had planned. The day came and at no point did we feel that we were still in the middle of a pandemic or unsafe. The hotel went above and beyond to make it a special day. There is nothing that we can find fault with the day, the hotel , the grounds and the amazing staff.

Such a wonderful day!
Just a quick email to thank you and your team for all your hard work in making our wedding such a wonderful day. The venue was beautifully decorated, from the Xmas trees to the table decorations. The food was, as we knew it would be, absolutely delicious, and our guests are still talking about it. We were looked after from start to finish in a very unobtrusive way. Thank you again so much,
