Full Description
The Manor House Within the house there are three fabulous locations where we can stage wedding ceremonies. Whether you prefer the early Georgian-inspired Dining Room with its beautiful walnut paneling overlooking the lime tree avenues, or the stunning Music Room adorned with spectacular wall paneling, elaborate plaster work and period paintings, our beautiful house will simply take your breath away. Waterside Pavilion Located in the heart of our estate, our Waterside marquee is home to the most romantic and idyllic surroundings. Set amidst our beautiful woodland dell, this intimate venue exudes rustic enchantment and charm. The Lakeside Marquee Nestled beneath the tree-tops in our extensive grounds, the Lakeside Marquee promises tranquility for you and your guests. Overlooking the water and countryside beyond, our beautiful marquee makes the perfect setting for a romantic, outdoor wedding. Walled Garden Marquee Located within the historic walls of the original walled garden, this is the perfect venue to host large, traditional weddings. Set within our secluded grounds and surrounded by two acres of Cheshire countryside, our Walled Garden Marquee can host between 200 and 2000 guests, making it one of the grandest wedding venues in the North West. Our accommodation boasts original features, designed with complete luxury in mind. Thornton Manor offers 22 stunning manor house bedrooms, and 14 cottages and annexes accommodating up to 108 guests.

Poor customer service
The venue is brilliant, but let down by very poor customer service The management (especially the owner philip) are extremely rude. Our wedding was unfortunately cancelled due to Covid-19 (admittedly, nobodies fault). However, they told us that in order to get married at Thornton Manor we would need to claim through our insurance and then do a new booking. They described this as a 'win - win' - we could still get married and they would keep the ~£8500 that we had already paid. The customer service was so poor we decided that we no longer wanted to get married here. They refused to refund any of our guests that had booked accommodation on that night - citing the fact that they could simply not afford to refund the money. When discussing our issues with Phillip he told us peoples jobs were on the line, and then had the cheek to ask what we do for a living. When I told him we both worked for the NHS he said it must be nice to know we have a guaranteed income each month. Yes, it is nice risking your life on the frontline during a pandemic!!!!! We have decided to book elsewhere for our wedding, consigned to the fact that Thornton Manor have £8500+ of our money for absolutely nothing. The way Thornton manor pleaded poverty I got the impression they were struggling to stay solvent. Be cautious!!!!!

Avoid at all costs
This was my son and daughter in laws dream. They were due to get married on a Saturday in May but due to corona virus their wedding was cancelled. The management at Thornton Manor refused to refund any monies and said they would offer an alternate date which was a Sunday in winter. As both my son and his partner are frontline NHS staff they could not accept a Sunday wedding as many of their guests who were work colleagues would not have been able to attend. They requested a Saturday in May in 2021 and even offered to pay extra if prices had increased but were told these dates were for new bookings only. My son requested a refund which they refused advising my son to claim through his wedding insurance and to rebook the new date with them once he had the refund saying this would be a ‘win win’. This was extremely stressful as my son and his partner had to cancel everything that was booked including caterers, photographer, florist music etc as they could not give anyone a rearranged date as they were unsure if their insurance would refund them. Throughout all communication management at Thornton manor were extremely unhelpful and often extremely rude. On one occasion the Manager, Phillip, told my son he was ‘very lucky’ working on the front line in the NHS as his job was secure ! My son and his partner did get a refund from their insurance and made the decision not to rebook with Thornton Manor due to the terrible way the Management had treated them. Thornton Manor refused to refund monies guests had paid in full for bedrooms in the Manor House meaning they still have this plus the 8.5k paid for the venue . PLEASE AVOID
