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,

Travel Notes

If coming from the A38/Plymouth, head for Tavistock via Yelverton. Don't follow your sat nav or you'll be sent a shorter but scarey route involving a steep and narrow country lane.
