I can honestly say Edwina and all the staff that waited tables and served drink were brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend The Dunkenhalgh for a venue as the room was ideal with your own private bar, toilets and private gardens with furniture.
I am quite happy for you

The long awaited day came and it was everything we had hoped for and more.

Karen and her team made the whole process stress free and took care of every last detail to ensure that we were in a position just to enjoy the day.

approach down a tree lined driveway to the 700 year old manor house full of character and style... Simply stunning, with lots of great places for lovely wedding pics.

The staff - the reception staff were warm and welcoming. The wedding day mc, Edweena, was friendly, efficient, always smiling and had absolutely everything under control at all times. although there had been some relaxation to the Covid rules, Edweena and her team managed the day and it felt totally normal.

The room - we used the Townley Suite and had around 70 guests and it was just perfect, although there's room for a few more if required. The room opened out in to the gardens and because it was such a lovely day Edweena arranged for garden furniture to be laid out. it was like a beautiful summer garden party, being served canapes and fizz, with the string quartet playing in the background.

The food - everyone at the wedding could not praise the food highly enough, it was absolutely delicious and where necessary the kitchen catered for the veggies and vegans. We couldn't have asked for more.

The accommodation - the entire hotel had been refurbished during one of the lockdown periods and it now looks modern, contemporary and fresh. What a transformation! Our guests commented on how lovely their bedrooms were and would definitely be back for a longer stay.

All in all, impossible to fault any of the organising, the flow of the day, the surroundings, the food, the service, or the people. It was all just perfect and to top it off terrific value for a venue of this calibre.

Thank you Dunkenhalgh team!
