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.

A beautiful day aided by beautiful staff at Thornton Manor
We had the most wonderful day at Thornton Manor in April 2018. From the moment you drive over the gravel entrance under the archway of the tudor style gatehouse and it opens out into the courtyard - with the majestic House stood in front of you, you know this warm inviting venue is the one for you. Then the big oak door opens up welcoming you into the stunning French room to greet the friendly staff. The venue then continues to offer you access to room after room of beautiful architecture and traditional design - finishing off with the incredible music room. This room offers a huge fire place and organ but your eyes are immediately drawn to the stunning artistic stained glass ceiling. As you celebrate your brand new nuptials, you then get to enjoy being showered by confetti thrown by your loved ones, along the tree lined walkway. It really is like a fairy tale! The staff truly want you to have the best day also and offer help and support - well surpassing their job description. An all round incredible venue with such class and versatility to put your own stamp on it. I couldn't recommend it highly enough. A special thank you to Dougie who made the day that little bit more fun and stress free. He is an asset to Thornton Manor
