From the moment we first contacted Ashdown Park, the communication was absolutely second to none. Our coordinator, Sara was so quick to respond whenever we had a query and couldn't have been more helpful! The venue is simply stunning, and our guests were absolutely amazed with it's beauty on the day. It really made it extra special for us. Being such a unique venue, it really was the only place we wanted to hold our wedding. We were lucky enough to view it first and we quickly decided that nowhere else was going to come close. The service on the day was amazing. Everything ran to time, which was ensured by all of the staff and the toastmaster. On the ... Read more

Where do I start? I first fell in love with Ashdown Park at a wedding Fayre back in march of 2017 and called my now husband crying to say how perfect it was. 4 weeks later, and we booked our dream wedding. And from the moment we booked it to the part where we were clapped into our reception as a newly married couple, I cannot fault the seamless and effortless service of all the staff at Ashdown Park Hotel. Our highly dedicated, and extremely patient, wedding co-ordinator Sara could not have done enough for us! She helped organise pretty much EVERYTHING for us. From menu tasting, to rooms for guests, to printing off my wedding vows the morning of ... Read more

Ashdown Park Hotel helped to create the wedding of our dreams. You never really know how everything will piece together until the day comes, but we were able to let go, forget and enjoy ourselves to the full as our wedding coordinator, banqueting manager and toast master had everything in hand. In the week leading up to the wedding, I was full of nerves, although our meeting with Sara (wedding coordinator) soon reassured us that everything was ok. Where possible we were helped with all the requests that we had - pop up bars upstairs, our choice of food and any special room requests for guests who needed better accessibility. We were fortunate to have a beautiful day and from ... Read more

We need to thank everyone at the Ashdown Park Hotel for making our dream wedding come true. The venue was absolutely stunning, the food was amazing, the service was great. Everything was just perfect, and the guests are still talking about how wonderful it was. Especially thanks to our coordinator Sara Hewitt, she's professional, has attention to detail, patient and efficient! Without her, the wedding wouldn't have been that smooth and flawless! We are so pleased that this dog friendly hotel allowed our beloved little westie join us all day long both indoor and outdoors, even having a seat during the wedding breakfast lol. Thank you again and we will be back for our anniversary celebrations next year :)

We had our wedding last week at Ashdown Park and I can honestly say the staff and Sara our wedding co ordinator made it so special for us! From when we first booked our wedding Sara was so helpful with everything, there was nothing that was too much for us! She made our day so relaxed and we didn't have to worry about anything as she had it all covered! She helped organise the children on the day (which is a task with my kids!) but she made it all so effortless. Throughout the wedding planning she was always there to call or email if ever I needed to ask anything or needed help with anything, I honestly think we ... Read more

Ellie was superb from start to finish. Throughout all planning she was extremely Attentive and on the day she was there whenever I needed her – included when I immediately needed my dress drying from The rain. Thank you so much everyone!!! You made our day absolutely amazing!

Everything from the day we were shown around the venue, through supporting us with the planning and then the day itself was done professionally and with attention to detail but also with a very personal touch. The venue is a beautiful place to have a wedding and we were lucky enough to have good weather and could make full use of the stunning grounds. Everyone commented on how lovely the venue was and the food which was excellent and catered to a number of dietary requirements without fuss or making those people feel awkward. We didn't have to worry about anything on the day as everything was carried out perfectly by the staff and adapted to whatever was needed. The ... Read more

We held our wedding reception at Ashdown Park in August 2015 and cannot speak highly enough about the venue or the staff. The converted chapel and surrounding grounds are highly impressive, helped by some glorious weather we were able to hold our drinks reception on the lawn and though there were other guests in the hotel, we were made to feel as if we had the whole place to ourselves. The reception suite itself with the stained glass windows helps provide that extra wow factor during the meal and into the evening. From our initial meeting through to the day itself, Lauren and her team were incredibly helpful, no request was too big or difficult to source and during the ... Read more

We had our wedding at Ashdown Park Hotel on Saturday 29th August 2015. WOW! What can I say, right from the very beginning when we first attended Ashdown for a viewing with Lauren the wedding co-ordinator we knew just then how accommodating they would be. Nothing was too much trouble them, right from the start to the very end of our wedding day. Scott & Richard who managed the whole day were absolutely terrific! There support, professionalism and expertise towards everyone was 10/10. Not forgetting all the hotel staff, chef's and waiters who helped make our day extra special. The food was outstanding, although we knew what to expect after our menu tasting- you certainly did not let us down! ... Read more

We were very well looked after at Ashdown Park from the word go by the lovely Lauren and the events team. Lauren was always on hand to help with any questions we had & to help us source anything we needed to help make our big day extra special. The venue itself is stunning & very impressive, as were the guest rooms & bridal suite... There are deer on the grounds & a lovely lake & fountains where we had a lot of our photos taken. The chapel area with the tall stained glass windows made sure our wedding was one to remember - the room looked amazing & topped with a live band & great food, the day was ... Read more

We had our Wedding and Recception at Ashdown Park in the Chapel March this year. The venue is absolutely stunning and the staff ensured that everything went as smoothly as possible. We would like to thank the chef for the very tasty food. We had great comments from our guests especially about the tasty lamb. We would also like to especially give a big thank you Richard (the events Manager) who took good care of us for the whole day checking in with us often and always delivering 100% customer satisfaction. We shall definately be coming back again!

We had a fantastic day in December at Ashdown for our small family gathering of 15. The added attraction of the Christmas decorations added to the lovely setting just made the day more special. Working with Lauren and the team to make the arrangements was very easy and on the day everything worked like clock work. All the staff involved were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble, everybody agreed that they did an outstanding job. Ashdown made our special day one to really remember for all the right reasons.

My husband and I got married on the 16th August 2014 at Ashdown Park Hotel. Planning with the hotel was wonderful. They have a team of really professional members of staff who were willing to help and support us throughout the whole process. On the day the team were fantastic at setting up the venue and ensuring everything ran smoothly. I had organised a surprise band for my husband and the staff were extremely helpful in greeting the band and making sure that my husband was unaware of them until they started playing after the ceremony. The hotel provide you with recommended suppliers which was extremely helpful. We and all of our guests had the most amazing time and would ... Read more

If you are looking for the "perfect" wedding venue then I can not recommend The Ashdown Park Hotel and their staff enough! We held our ceremony and the reception in the Richard Towneley Suite. This is the converted chapel and it is absolutely stunning. This suite houses the ceremony room, the wedding breakfast chapel room and its own bar. Its totally self contained and apart from the hotel (but still accessible via a corridor to the hotel, if its raining) so you don't have to worry about other hotel guests walking in to your wedding reception. The bar is ran at pub prices too, which was a big plus in our book. The food is exquisite and there is plenty ... Read more

We recently held our small intimate Wedding at Ashdown Park, and couldn't have wished for a better day. The Staff in Particular Lauren Peters were wonderful in helping us to arrange our day just as we wanted. The food was amazing and everyone really enjoyed themselves. With such a beautiful location it would be easy for the Hotel, to provide a wedding without such an effort, so its great to have the best of both worlds. A special thank you to Lauren for the personal attention I received on my day, and helping me to re-arrange a few last minute problems. We will definitely be returning for our 1st wedding anniversary, as this was the place where the proposal happened, ... Read more

We had our very intimate (15 guests) wedding at the Ashdown Park Hotel on June 28th 2014 and we couldn't have asked for anything more! From the initial meeting with Lauren (wedding co-ordinator) we found her to be helpful and accessible, and she and her team did a fantastic job on the day. The venue is beautiful and the Jakob-Henniker Suite where the ceremony and wedding breakfast were held is a lovely room with lots of light, and although the room is next to the main hotel entrance you would never know it once inside. The gardens are amazing and the perfect setting for photos, we were able to use the walled gardens and also have some pictures taken by ... Read more

Perfect venue with amazing staff who will happily go the extra mile to make your day an incredible memory. Can't fault them at all!

The Ashdfown Park Hotel is an absolutely beautiful hotel, the grounds are perfect for a Wedding Day. We had a fantastic experience from the day we decided to wed there. We went for the intimate package (39 of us in all). Lauren in Events and Richard and his team who were with us on the day were brilliant. Nothing was too much for them. To have our Champagne and Canapes in the Secret Garden started our party off so well. The wedding breakfast was delicious and all of guests had a thoroughly wonderful day. We had approx. 20 guests stay the night and we were given a private dining room for our breakfast the next morning which rounded our special ... Read more
