wedding on Tue, 20th of September, 2022
We stayed at the Devonshire Arms Hotel in September for three nights for an elopement wedding package. We’d added an extra night so we had a full day to enjoy the hotel prior to our wedding. What a wonderful experience it was from beginning to end. There are many contributory factors for this.

First of all, it was very well organised and we were made to feel very special – and all the staff we met were attentive, approachable and professional. Unlike some other hotels that advertise themselves as wedding venues, but on closer inspection are a little run down and lack attention to detail, The Devonshire Arms was the epitome of friendly sophistication. It has plenty of seating areas, all of which have great character and history, with roaring fires at the colder times of the year – even one in the entrance hall. Set in beautiful grounds with the hills near Bolton Bridge in the background, everything is carefully maintained. There are no weeds growing in the Devonshire Arms gardens! The small, but attractive room where the wedding took place was the perfect size for us – there were just the two of us, plus two witnesses we ‘borrowed’ for the occasion, though there was also room for the videographer, photographer and, of course, the registrars. The Devonshire can also cater for larger parties in other parts of the hotel and grounds. The wedding breakfast was excellent – beautifully cooked for just the two of us. We stayed in one of the suites, and there were so many ‘little extras’ to delight us – as well as a fridge to keep our champagne cold! The package also included treatments at the hotel’s spa just over the road. That was good too, but the revelation was the picturesque stream bubbling through the spa’s gardens – with a small stone bridge arching over it – the perfect place for taking romantic wedding photos. The whole experience left us feeling truly pampered, and we’ll definitely be returning to The Devonshire Arms in the future!

We had a perfect Wedding at The Devonshire Arms and were really happy with our venue choice. Not only is the surrounding area beautiful, but the hotel itself was perfect. The staff were friendly and helpful right from the start when we were planning, through to the day when they made us feel like

We got married at the Devonshire arms on the 1st June 2019. I can honestly say from beginning to end they were faultless. Right from looking round the venue to booking and all of the planning before the day was perfect. Robyn who was our wedding planner made our experience a dream. She was on the

ball straight away, nothing was a ‘silly’ request and she dealt with everything we wanted to make our day special. We can’t fault the Devonshire Arms, our day was truly magical. If we could have our day again, I wouldn’t change a thing. The venue is beautiful and staff were amazing. We had a lot of feedback from our guests who all said positive things about the venue.
