Rockbeare Manor Wedding Reviews

Our whole team absolutely LOVE what we do! It gives us immense pleasure to be a part of such a special day and it makes it even more wonderful when we receive such lovely feedback from our brides and grooms about their wedding at Rockbeare Manor, our gorgeous wedding venue in Devon.

 We're proud to share some of the wonderful words of thanks that we have received...


"We had our dream wedding at Rockbeare Manor on Thursday and we wanted to send a huge thank you to each and everyone of you, for making our day so stress free and perfect.

Cameron, you were incredible, your professionalism and talent shone on the day. So many of our guests gave compliments to you personally and really sang your praises. You talked us through everything, what was happening next and what we needed to do. Your organisation was impeccable. You really put our minds at ease and really looked after us. You're absolutely fabulous at what you do and we would recommend you to anyone!!

Thank you to you all at Rockbeare Manor for an incredible day."
Karlie and Stuart Knight - 21st April 2022


"We had our wedding on the 2nd April 2022. We had the most incredible day. Helen, our wedding coordinator was amazing, we dealt with her from the start and she was there on the day. Having the same person throughout the wedding planning and on the big day made a massive difference as she really knew how we wanted everything.
Helen and her team couldn’t have done anymore for us, always making sure we had drinks, and making sure everything ran on time and that we were happy with everything.
The day was amazing and was everything we dreamed off and more. It ran so smoothly with no glitches. It was the perfect day and that’s thanks to Helen and the teams professionalism and service. Our guests have been telling us how smooth the day went and that it was the perfect venue. The food was amazing too, superbly served. The accommodation was beautiful too, spacious and luxurious, wish we could have stayed longer. We can’t fault anything. Wish we could do it all again."

Lauren and Andy Uren - 2nd April 2022


"Our wedding was what could only be described as perfection, the whole process (which thanks to COVID was a lot longer than initially planned) was seamless.
Helen and the team went above and far far beyond to ensure that we had the wedding of our dreams, nothing was too much to ask and all our needs were catered too.
The service and food was impeccable and we honestly cannot thank all of you enough, thank you for truly giving us the day that only dreams are made of, thank you all so much 🖤"

Megan and Luke Allen - 26th March 2022


"We had our wedding day just over a month ago on 25th March and wanted to send a huge thank you to Davy, Anna, Aimée and all and the fantastic team at Rockbeare, not only for the day itself, but also the long run up since booking back in 2019.

The communication has been great, we are so thankful for how everything has been handled with the postponements after what must have been a very difficult time in the hospitality industry. We could not have wished for a better day and feel so lucky to have had the first outdoor ceremony of the year. We had so many compliments from our guests about the beautiful venue, the quality of the food, the slick running of the day and attentive nature of the staff.

Thank you once again."

George and Phuong Elsworth - 25th March 2022


"Andy and I would like to thank Aimee, Davy and the entire Rockbeare team for making our wedding reception at Rockbeare Manor so amazing. Perfect setting, excellent food, gorgeous rooms and outstanding service. Our day was perfect and every single one of our 115 guests agree! Magical. Thank you."

Mr and Mrs Hornby - 26th February 2022


"We got married at Rockbeare yesterday (!) and would highly recommend. From start to finish,the staff were amazing (especially during these uncertain Covid times) and made the day flow seamlessly.
The Manor is beautiful and many of our guests complimented how lovely it was.
The food was also amazing, we could not fault anything.
Thank you so much to the whole team but a special shout out to Anna who was our coordinator on the day and Helen who helped us throughout (amidst all the Covid chaos)."

Thank you! 😊 Jaime and Tom Kelly x - 28th December 2021


"Dear Helen and Anna, we wish to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our daughter's wedding such a special day.

You and your staff were excellent - we cannot praise you highly enough. All the arrangements went off without a hitch and were exactly what we had been hoping for. The food was superb, delicious and beautifully served. The accommodations were fantastic - luxurious and spacious (we wished we could have stayed longer!), and the rooms used for the wedding and reception were exceptional.

All of our guests commented that it was the best wedding, and the best venue they had been to, and we echo those sentiments - we simply cannot think how the day could have been improved.

So, once again, thank you - you have our eternal gratitude".

Mother and Father of the Bride - 11th December 2021


"I would like to offer you and your team, a very special thank you for everything you did to make the wedding on Saturday such a wonderful occasion for everyone who attended but especially for Charlotte and Ben. They were blown away with the whole thing and exceeded even their expectations.

Everything was perfect and Cameron was a star, nothing was too much trouble and he was in total control throughout. The food from canapés through to desserts was delicious and service and attention to detail 5 star.

In summary, a day which will live in our memories forever, again a big thank you."

Mr and Mrs Beer (Mother and Father of the Bride) - 4th December 2021


"Just a message to say a GREAT BIG THANK YOU from Karen and I. We were absolutely delighted with how the day was managed and with how accommodating and professional all the staff were on the day. The venue itself is gorgeous, but it can only fulfil it's potential with a great team... and the team you have is absolutely fantastic. All of our guests had nothing but positive things to say... from the setting to the food, from the accommodation to the staff. With all of our hearts, THANK YOU."

Karen and Ben - 26th October 2021


Dear Helen, I just wanted to drop you an email to say we can't thank you all enough for the incredible day yourself and the Rockbeare team provided for myself and Harry on October 10th.

The months since have flown by, but we keep looking back and thinking that we honestly couldn't have asked for a better day. Everything ran so smoothly, the food was out of this world, and the staff were so kind.

We feel so privileged to have had our wedding with you and will forever cherish the memories.

Chloe and Harry Ross - 10th October 2021


 "Wow. Where do we even begin? We want to say a huge thank you to each and every one of you at the wonderful Rockbeare Manor team.

 We had the most incredible day with you on our wedding day, 9th July 2021. It was perfect, (despite the things we could not control for!) and undoubtedly the best day of our lives. 

 The uncertainties of the last 18 months have been very difficult for the wedding industry, but the team at Rockbeare Manor have been relaxed, flexible and so reassuring during this time. Thank you so much. 

 Helen, you have been so wonderful since day one when you showed us around on a virtual viewing in Spring 2020. Nothing has ever been too much trouble (despite our many questions!) and you have been professional, easy to contact and so approachable throughout the process. 

 The professionalism of the entire team on the day was incredible and surpassed all expectations. We would specifically like to say a massive thank you to Cameron who calmly talked through an alternative route to the venue for my brothers over the phone, who got lost and stuck in the backed up A30 traffic (after the big road traffic accident) with my Gran (our oldest guest!) and auntie. He undoubtedly saved the afternoon, and demonstrated amazing initiative and leadership. We are so grateful. He also featured in my dad’s father of the bride speech - my parents were so impressed and grateful for his help. 

 The kitchen staff dealt with a 90 minute delay due to this traffic complication. This must have been so stressful for the chefs. Despite this the team coped perfectly with the shift in timescales. The food was absolutely exquisite and so many of our guests have been complementing it to us. Please extend our deepest thanks to the chefs. 

 The ballroom looked absolutely beautiful and the photo and video set up that you organised for us was perfect. The rooms were so wonderful, comfortable and luxurious. The house is absolutely stunning and we just wish we could have spent more than the one night there!

 Every single aspect of the day, evening and following morning was amazing. Rockbeare Manor is the perfect wedding venue and this is down to the people that run the show. Thank you so so much to all of you from the bottom of our hearts." 

Cieron and Lucy Roe - 9th July 2021


George and I would like to say a massive thank you for everything you did for us in the lead up to and on our wedding day. We both had the most magical day and everything seemed to go so smoothly thanks to your organisation and professionalism. All the staff were so friendly and attentive and we got lots of compliments from our guests on how beautiful the venue is.

From the moment we arrived at Rockbeare for our viewing, we fell in love with the place. The viewing we had with Helen made us feel very secure in our decision to have our wedding at your venue and since that day - we didn't look back.

Thanks again for such an amazing day!

George and Danielle - 27th June 2021


 "I just wanted to email you to say a massive massive thank you for everything you did on the lead up to our wedding. We were blown away with the service and how attentive you and all the staff were. We just had the best day and even though it was meant to have been 120, we actually wouldn’t have changed a thing. It felt so smooth running and that was a thanks to you and your team, so thank you so much."

Sally and Curtis - 5th June 2021


"30th October 2020 was the day that our daughter Emma eventually married Matt at Rockbeare Manor.  I am just looking at photos and it’s reminded me what a wonderful day we had. I’d like to thank all the team at Rockbeare Manor for making it such a special day. Andy and Aimee went out of their way to ensure everything went smoothly. Little things meant a lot; among many things I was grateful to Aimee for parking our car for us and to Andy for accompanying me down the long hall to the ceremony. Jess was great throughout the day. Thank you so much."

Alexandra, mother of the bride - 30th October 2020


"We honestly had the best day with our family at Rockbeare Manor, despite the many changes to plans and our wedding day being the 3rd wedding date for us but we are so happy that we decided to proceed with our wedding this year, the intimate setting at Rockbeare Manor was so special and we couldn’t have asked for a nicer team to look after us. We both said after the day that in hindsight we would have planned a more intimate day from the start as it couldn’t have been more perfect and would just love to say a huge thank you to you all for your support from the planning through to the big day itself. 

 For us, the decision of whether to go ahead with an intimate wedding this year or hold off for a couple of years ended up being an easy decision when we sat down to weigh up our options and said to ourselves that the reason we were having our wedding was to get married and become husband and wife. We knew we could have a big party at some point in the future but the most important part of our special day was getting married with our closest family and starting the rest of our lives together. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day than our wedding day at Rockbeare Manor in October, if you’re gut is telling you to go for it, go with it you won’t regret it!"

Alex and Heidi - 22nd October 2020


"We would highly recommend Rockbeare Manor as a wedding venue. We had initially planned our wedding for April but due to covid had to postpone our wedding day to October with a bigger party planned for later in the year. Rockbeare have been so helpful and understanding every step of the way as our plans continued to change and develop as guidance changed. Our wedding day itself was so special and anyone that is worrying about having just 15 guests shouldn’t worry at all: the staff at Rockbeare and the beautiful grounds meant our day was incredible even with limited numbers. The food was absolutely excellent and one of our guests had several allergies and was just absolutely over the moon at the food that was provided for her as well. Our guests loved how stunning the rooms were as well. We are so grateful to Jessica in particular for all of her hard work on the day in making sure everything ran smoothly. Thank you so much also to Aimée and Helen for all of the arranging leading up to the big day as well".

Jade and Ed - 26th October 2020


"Dear all at Rockbeare Manor

 As the mother of the bride I just want to say an enormous thank you for the lovely wedding reception we all enjoyed. Despite the reduced numbers and the restrictions due to covid, it didn't spoil things at all and everyone has said what a happy day it was. 

 Couples having to have different weddings to normal due to the current restrictions can be assured that they can still have a lovely experience at Rockbeare Manor. 

 Every best wish to you for the coming months". 

Mother of the Bride - Saturday 26th September 2020


 "Thank you so much for all your hard work over the last few months to help us make our day a reality.

We truly dodged a bullet with the 30/15 people issue and we had the most incredible day with our lovely friends and family that didn’t feel covid different at all.

 The weather, food, rooms and decorations were just sublime - (breakfast was an extra lovely treat especially), and all your servers and staff could not have been more lovely and attentive.

 Our guests all ADORED Rockbeare".

Hannah & Steven - Saturday 26th September 2020


"From when I was young I always dreamed of having the typical large fairytale wedding. I was due to get married in May 2020, then due to Covid we had to postpone until September. Working together with our wedding venue Rockbeare Manor, we decided to split our wedding into two parts. This was honestly the best decision I could ever have made. In September our guest numbers were limited to 30 - where I once would have hated this idea as it was not what I envisaged, it ended up being exactly what I wanted without even knowing it! Our wedding venue was absolutely amazing through the whole process. It was so much more intimate and I was able to spend the time talking to all my guests without missing anyone out. I was treated like a princess for the whole day and every member of staff was attentive and caring.

I would advise any bride getting married during Covid to just do it! Marriage is about the love for your partner and sharing your day with those most special to you. Having a smaller wedding meant that we didn't get 'those second aunties that you have never met' - it was an event with all those closest to us, which I will cherish forever.

Aimée and Helen kept in touch during the whole process and even called us just to see how we were feeling about everything going on. Next year, we will hopefully be having our Wedding 'part two', with all those that were not able to attend this year. After the wedding I soon got all the wedding blues, but this quickly vanished. I get to wear my wedding dress TWICE!!! I get to experience the amazing food-which honest to god was the best food I have ever eaten in my life and I get to return to the glorious grounds which were all well kept and beautiful.

I never thought I would ever have two weddings and what started out as disappointment is now appreciation and pure excitement.

I am so unbelievably lucky to be able to experience the best day of my life for the second time.

If I could advise any bride considering doing this. Please, please, please do it as you will not regret it!! I literally can not wait for next year, where I have managed to have the best of both worlds. One that is intimate, romantic and special in its own way, one that is large,  full of music and dancing. How many brides get to say that they got to experience two weddings to the same partner?! 

In regards to Covid restrictions, the team made sure to make the experience as magical as it could possibly be. Whilst they made sure to maintain guidelines, providing hand gel and exceptionally clean facilities, they also made sure that it was your "typical" wedding experience. I do not feel that I missed out in any way whatsoever, if anything I feel like I got a better experience than most.

My last bit of advice would be to make it your own. Due to the restrictions put in place, all our traditional wedding ideas of what a wedding "had to include" went out the window. Please do not panic as whenever you do get married here, it will be an amazing experience which you will never forget." 

Philippa and Michael - 20th September 2020


 "Dear Davy, myself and Joe just wanted to say a massive thankyou to you and your team! You yourself looked after us from the very first meeting at the venue, all the way to our special day, and we can’t thankyou enough for that.

All our guest have said how amazing the staff were in looking after us all and making everything perfect! 

A massive thankyou needs to go to Cameron, he made sure me and joe were always happy and had everything we needed! Nothing seemed like it was to much trouble! Excellent member of staff! 

 The food was so yummy! No one had a bad word to say about it and the burgers, guest were saying they have never had a burger that’s tasted so good! 

 Thankyou for excellent communication leading up to the wedding and making everything so calm and clear.

Once again, Thankyou very much and we will be recommending Rockbeare Manor at any given chance." 

Mr & Mrs Coughlin - Saturday 14th March 2020 


"Dear all at Rockbeare, we want to say a huge thank-you to everyone involved in our special day. Our wedding was more than perfect, it was everything we had wished for and more! Your venue and team were out of this world... words can't describe how helpful and amazing you all were. You all work so hard and deserve a lot of credit! The manor itself is like something out of a fairytale!

Cameron - What can I say... You blew us away with your kindness, eagerness to make our day perfect and how much you cared for us. Nothing was a problem or too much trouble, you made us feel like we were the only 2 people in the world that mattered, we are really grateful you were involved in our day. You remained very calm considering how busy the bar was! A massive thank-you to you! 

Davy was also a star and again nothing was a problem! He made us feel at ease and that everything was under control.

Food - We had a lot of compliments from our guests saying how amazing the food was, and we totally agree! Everything was so tasty and freshly made. The canapés were insane! 

A lot of our guests have said its the best wedding they've ever been too - and this is all down to your amazing team!"

Mr & Mrs Onslow - 7th March 2020


"Dear Davy, Where do we even begin... Rob and I cannot thank you, Helen, Cameron, Johnny and all of the team, enough for making our wedding day so special! Everything right from our first visit to Rockbeare Manor, until after breakfast the morning following the wedding, was just amazingly perfect.

The wedding day for us was completely stress free thanks to all of you. The team provided us with everything we needed, often before we even realised we needed it! You were always one step ahead of everything and we will be forever grateful.

 It goes without saying that Rockbeare Manor is a beautiful building, but the staff are what really make it. You all worked so hard, and such long hours!! You made us feel so welcome, nothing was too much trouble and you really went the extra mile to make us feel so special on our big day.

 We definitely have to say a big thank you to the chefs, I’m sure all our guests will agree that the food was so delicious!! An extra thank you to Cameron for organising chicken burgers at 1am - so glad we didn’t miss out on those, they were out of this world!

 So thank you again for being a part of our wedding day, it honestly was the best day ever! We wish we could do it all again. Hopefully we can be guests at another wedding at Rockbeare one day.

 Best wishes Becky & Rob x"

Mr and Mrs Dunigan - Thursday 20th February 2020


"Hello from Mr and Mrs Cross! 

 Now we're back to the normality of every day life, I wanted to reach out to say the biggest thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

 Rockbeare Manor was the perfect venue, there are no words to explain how pleased we were, and to be hosted by the most incredible people was a privilege. Jessica and Davy, we honestly couldn't have asked for more amazing hosts, thank you so very much to you and your team.... Special mention to Cameron for making our evening so special on Friday night too. From start to finish - your organisation, calming influence, patience and fun loving professionalism was incredible, on the most important day of our lives we couldn't have wished for more. You are a credit to Rockbeare and should be commended for your relentless hard work and understanding of what makes your guests happy. You were like magicians and Jessica, you were so incredibly kind to keep running around like you did on the big day! You were everywhere and no where at the same time, like a wonderful flitting fairy magician who made sure that everyone's day/evening was perfect but without being seen! I hope you are both well rewarded as you honestly are the best event planners/hosts we have ever had the pleasure to meet. I will highly recommend Rockbeare Manor to everyone, our guests all absolutely loved their time there too.

Many said it was the best wedding venue they've ever been to. Thank you again and I wish you so much success in the future. 

Thank you once more, 

Caroline and Richard" - 18th January 2020


Our daughter was married at Rockbeare Manor and Jessica looked after us and our guests for the celebrations.  She worked continuously through the whole day and must be commended for her professionalism and friendliness along with her whole team.  Thank you also to Davy and Cameron who looked after us on the Friday night when we had a family meal which was very special.

 We were very grateful for all the advice offered which was an enormous help and if anyone is considering the venue we strongly recommend taking them up on their suggestions.

 The venue, food and hospitality were perfect, we even had good weather allowing us to have canapés outside.

 Thank you for the most perfect day at such a beautiful venue.

 Mr & Mrs Edwards - Saturday 18th January 2020


"We just wanted to say how much everyone enjoyed our wedding. We had the most amazing day and so many people said lovely things about Rockbeare Manor.

 It was as close to perfect as we could have wished for. The food was excellent and we were looked after really well and very attentively. In particular Jess and Cameron are an absolute credit to your team and we would like to thank them for being so helpful.

 We are sad it is all over, but are so happy with how well it went.

 We hope to visit again someday but for now we leave with happy memories".

Holly and Rob - 9th October 2019


"We had our wedding at Rockbeare Manor in September. It is a beautiful old house that is well looked after and maintained, not only is it lovely to look at from the outside, it is very well decorated and spacious on the inside. The water feature in the garden is great to have photos taken by and the scenic view of the country side surrounding the manor also makes a wonderful backdrop. 

 We had planned to have the ceremony outside but the weather forecast was looking like rain however the staff kept checking the forecast for us and in the end it was lovely sunny weather so we got to stay outside. 

 The food we had chosen from their menu was delicious and we received many compliments from guests on the taste. They also catered really well to all the allergy and dietary requirements we had submitted to them. 

 The Staff at Rockbeare really made all our hopes for the day come true, they were all very polite and ready to help whenever we needed them. Sophie, the event organiser, made us feel completely at ease and the day went extremely smoothly thanks to her. It is obvious that the staff at Rockbeare really do care about their clients and I'm glad I chose it as my wedding venue, a perfect venue for a perfect day."

 Rachel and Luke - 12th September 2019


To Aimee and the Rockbeare Manor Team.  Thank you so much for all your hard work that went into helping organise our wedding day. We had the best day we could possibly imagine. It all ran smoothly, the venue looked beautiful and the food was delicious. You were lovely, our parents have spoken about how nice you were and we also enjoyed all our interactions with you. You made planning a wedding a very easy, enjoyable experience. You made us feel listened to and valued plus you then put on the best day! It was lovely seeing everything we had discussed come together, from the garden games, the table tennis, to keeping us on track during the day. You're clearly very good at what you do. 

 Our family loved the hot chocolate/coffee time after we had left and also said breakfast was very special. Thanks Aimee!

 Please could you pass on our thanks to the chefs too. We have had SO many people tell us "it was the best wedding food" they had ever had. It was all delicious and also looked beautiful. From the canapes through to the dessert buffet stand, it was brilliant. 

 Our interactions with all staff were lovely, thank you. 

Thomas and Jo Evans - 26th August 2019


 "Dear Jess, we honestly cannot thank you and the Rockbeare staff enough! It was truly the best day of our lives! Everything flowed so smoothly and went off without a hitch! Every one of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue is, how incredible the food was and how fantastic the staff were and we agree one million percent!!"

Sam and Eilish Marker - 9th August 2019


"Davy and Helen. What can I say! Thank you so so much for everything you both did to ensure we had the best wedding day ever! It far exceeded all of our dreams and expectations! Everything went so smoothly and effortlessly that we didn’t have to think about anything all day and could just be totally present in our wedding and we are hugely grateful to you both for that.

 Davy – you literally had everything covered! From making sure we had canapés during our photos, to bringing us a pasty at the end of the night – somehow knowing that we wouldn’t have had much of a chance to eat ourselves. Nothing was too much trouble and you were omnipresent from our arrival until we left the next day.  Thank you so so much for everything – you were beyond incredible.

 Also, we have to mention the food which was insane! We’ve had loads of people say it was the best they’ve ever had at a wedding (I don’t think there was a single crumb of crème brulee left anywhere!)

 Thank you both so much for your help with setting up as well. The place just looked so beautiful – I was totally overwhelmed when I arrived so thank you for leading the suppliers and getting everything done so we could just chill and relax. And the effort that was made to ensure that the breakfast room was decorated and everyone ate together the next morning was such a lovely touch – it made the whole event feel extra special.

 Basically, you totally made it for us and we feel incredibly grateful."

Ruth and Liam - 27th July 2019


"Dear Aimee, It's been a little while after our wedding now and we wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your team. You were brilliant! You were so helpful and attentive to us. You helped our guests and your team were fantastic in everything they did. The food was brilliant your burgers may have been the best ever.

The venue, your efforts and your teams efforts were noticed by a number of guests who all said they were surprised at how good and how brilliant you were. We enjoyed our day so much and it was perfect. Thank you again."

 Ben and Rhiannon  - 15th July 2019


"We honestly had the day of our dreams! We still can’t talk about it without welling up. It was just truly magical! All of our guests have been talking about how beautiful the venue was, how relaxed the day felt and how everything flowed seamlessly, and of course how stunning the food was.

 You really made everything so special and we cannot thank you all enough for making what everyone is saying the best wedding they have ever been to!"

Paige Peacock & Scott Hannaford - 11th July 2019


"Davy, we just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and everyone at Rockbeare Manor for helping us celebrate our special day. The day went so smoothly and we can't thank you enough for coordinating the day so brilliantly. Everything from the moment we arrived to breakfast the next day, with all our centre pieces displayed beautifully, was so well thought out, and we can't thank you all enough. We really didn't have to worry about a thing all day!

We have had so many guests compliment how beautiful the venue is, and also how good the food was. I still can't stop thinking about the chocolate cheesecake!

We couldn't have asked for a better back drop for our wedding day and we are so glad we picked Rockbeare Manor, we have made memories there we will cherish forever."

Helena and Tom - 26th May 2019


"We are only just starting to come down from what has been an absolutely incredible few weeks. The day itself was so amazing and we could not have wished for a better occasion. It went so smoothly, largely down to you and the team so thank you so very much."

Claire and Oliver - 24th May 2019


"We just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you for making our wedding on May 10th the most amazing day. From the moment we had our first visit to Rockbeare last October to look around, to the day of the wedding, the service you provide has been excellent.

Somehow you managed to make us feel like ours was the only wedding, although we are amazed at how quickly your team turn it around for the next lucky couple. Every one of the team was so lovely and we know you all work so hard.

Our friends and family had a fantastic time and have been raving about it ever since. It really was the most perfect day. Thank you so much."

Louisa and Chris - 10th May 2019


I just wanted to drop you a note, on behalf of Matthew & I, to say thank you for the wedding you enabled us to host yesterday. 

From start to finish everyone has been a dream to work with, Davy in particular. You and your team really do go over and beyond, and it showed, our guests were so impressed, as were we.

Emma Johansen & Matthew Alderson - 28th April 2019


"I know our wedding was a while ago now but we've been meaning to get in touch with you to say a HUGE THANK YOU for all of your help in the run up and our wedding day itself. We had the best day and would like to show our appreciation for the stunning venue and staff that all played such an important role in ensuring our day was perfect.

 Helen and Davy, you were really helpful throughout the booking/planning process and we really appreciated your support and advice. We felt in safe hands the whole time and ultimately had fun planning our day which could have been a very stressful process. 

 Elizabeth, we cannot thank you enough for your hard work on the day.  You worked so hard to get everything spot on - everything went without a hitch throughout both the day and evening and we felt your organisational skills and attentiveness were exemplary.  Nothing was too much trouble and every detail was thought of.  Your care and thoughtfulness didn't go unnoticed and we appreciate it so much -  you were also an extremely calming influence when nerves were getting to us! We felt informed and looked after the whole time. 

The waiting staff were fabulous and very discreet, we almost didn't realise they were there - very swift and thorough service ensured that all of our guests had the best time and weren't waiting for anything at any stage.  The bar staff were also great and made sure there were never any queues. 

Thank you all - we're hoping we get invited to another wedding up there so we can experience it all over again!"

 Sophie Seymour and Lee Thomas - 2nd February 2019


I really must say thank you to all of you for making our daughter's wedding day so amazing. Everything was perfect, from the food to the friendly, helpful staff to the beautifully clean venue and amazing bedrooms.  We all had a fantastic time as the photos clearly show. Thank you again."

Mr and Mrs Mitchell - 31st December 2018


"Dear Elizabeth, we just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for helping our wedding day (October 11th) run so smoothly - we had the most perfect day! It was such a smooth operation we almost forgot we were at a venue - it felt like home. Every detail from the decorations to the food, to the staff to the running of the day was more amazing than we could have ever imagined.  From the first day we visited Rockbeare Manor we knew that we wanted to get married there. The whole experience form planning through to the day itself was just flawless. I also want to thank Elizabeth for accommodating all of our requirements during the planning stages! So many of our guests were commenting on how great the venue, service, bedrooms and especially the food were!  This is all thanks to the brilliant staff at Rockbeare Manor who we would like to thank so very much.  We have so many lovely memories that we will cherish forever."

Mr and Mrs Rogers - 11th October 2018


"Wow! We got married at Rockbeare Manor on Saturday 29th September and we could not fault it one bit.  The staff and event managers were outstanding. They really went that extra mile to make sure Jamie and I had the most perfect day.  the venue is just perfection.  food was glorious and the rooms were breathtaking.  Thank you so so much to everyone who helped make our day so perfect xxxxx"

Mr and Mrs Burton - 29th September 2018


"Hi Stephanie. Where do I start? I don't think we can thank you enough for all of the hard work you did to make our wedding day the best day of our lives.  You and your team went above and beyond to turn our dreams into reality and I appreciate everything you did.  Rockbeare Manor is such a beautiful venue and I knew the service and food would be exceptional.  My sister got married at Coombe Lodge in 2014, and when Rockbeare Manor was purchased by yourselves I always knew it would be my first choice venue to look at if I was lucky enough to get engaged!  Thankfully when myself and Steve did get engaged and we visited the Manor, I loved it as much as I had hoped I would and Steve did too. 

The food was out of this world amazing, so many people commented on the wonderful food as well as the stunning venue. Thank you for looking after us so well and making the day run so smoothly.  My only criticism is the day went by too fast!! I want to do it all over again (not sure my Dad wants to pay for another wedding so soon though!!)

We truly had the Best Wedding Ever, so Thank You So Much for all of your hard work, both before and during the day."

Mr and Mrs Pinkerton-Hiron - 10th March 2018


“Dear Stephanie, I can’t tell you how much we both loved the day and so much of that was down to you guys (particularly you!) Everything ran perfectly and allowed us to just enjoy the day as we wanted.

I don't think there was one person who didn't tell us how superb everything was, the venue, the staff and the food - everything was first class.

I knew Rockbeare was the right choice from the moment we stepped inside so I was so pleased everyone else saw this too. I would quite like to do it all over again!!

Thank you so much for everything you did, and please pass on my thanks again to your lovely Chef who saved the day with the cake, it looked awesome after he finished with it! Thanks again”

Jessica Franklin & Nicholas Hart – 20th January 2018


“We want to say a huge thank you for making our wedding day perfect. We had a fantastic day, our guests all commented on how beautiful the venue was. A special thank you to your chefs as the food was perfect on the day, we had a lot of chefs attending our wedding and they all commented on how good the food was. The day ran like clockwork and we have you to thank for this, we could not have asked for more.” 

Karen Akehurst & Jody Shaw – 25th November 2017


“We would just like to say a huge thank you to you and all the team at Rockbeare Manor. From start to finish you and the Rockbeare team have been nothing but amazing. We really had the most fantastic day on Saturday and that’s thank you to your team.

The chef - both Rhys and I plus family and all our guests were simply blown away by the food. You really should be proud of your talent.

The waiting and bar staff - excellent in every way, service was 5 star, smiley, polite and so attentive. You really are a real credit to Rockbeare Manor - just awesome!

Helen - fantastic in every way from communication to nothing being too much trouble. You were brilliant.

Aimée and Andy - incredible venue, service and personal touches. Thank you so much. We will never be able to say how truly grateful we are to you for everything you’ve done to make that day be such a great wedding. Our guests loved Rockbeare, the FOOD, service and attention to detail. We will be eternally grateful to you both.

You do a fantastic job you really do and we can’t thank you enough ALL of you.” 

Nicki Bosley & Rhys Lewis – 14th October 2017


“Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and it was all down to Rockbeare. We've had so many wonderful compliments on our choice of venue. The day ran so smoothly and the team at Rockbeare really helped to bring my vision to life. Aimee, Andy and the team were always welcoming and friendly, they helped us with any queries we had and we're always on hand to provide guidance. Their attention to detail was impeccable and really strived for perfection. The food was exquisite and beautifully presented.”

Ashley Perrett & William Gallimore - 28th September 2017


“We recently got married at Rockbeare manor and it was my dream wedding! The venue is outstanding and beautiful, the staff are so organised and caring. Never once felt stressed or overwhelmed. Beautiful place beautiful location and beautiful people.”

Siobhan Mullins & Danny Atkinson – 22nd September 2017


“We would like to say the biggest thank you for all that you did to give us a perfect wedding day.   We would especially like to thank Helen for all her work leading up to the wedding and to Stephanie who on the day ensured that everything ran smoothly.   We fell in love with Rockbeare Manor as soon as we saw it and it is somewhere that will always be very special to us.”

Kathryn Lister & Ben Kingdon – 20th September 2017


“Steph at Rockbeare was amazing from start to finish! She listened to all our ideas and gave us good advice about what to do, nothing was too much trouble. For our wedding day, everything was perfect, Steph was so organised and everything ran exactly how we wanted it to. We received so many compliments from our guests about how stunning the venue was and also about how great Steph was. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding day! We will definitely recommend Rockbeare to our friends!”

Stephanie Harvey and Christopher Baldock – 27th August 2017


“We want to express our happiness and gratitude to you and your team! You literally ran around ragged for us to ensure that our day went smoothly and exceeded our dreams. Rockbeare was stunning (despite the rain) but the stars of the day were you, your calming smile and your team who treated us like royalty.  Thank you for everything and making our day immense!”

Joanna Foster & Terry Stokes – 20th August 2017


“I remember that feeling when I first drove down the drive....that happy flutter of your heart! I hadn't even stepped foot in the building and I knew! The communication you get from the team when you have 100's of questions every other day was amazing. I couldn't even keep up but nothing was too much trouble. It makes you realise that you’re onto a winner when you get a quick response to put your mind at rest. Looking back now I want to do it all over again. The food was Devine and people still tell me how amazing it was 3 months later. This complete gem of a venue should be up there with the most expensive in the South West (because if it was a hotel I would expect this to be a 5 star!!!) but it's reasonably priced! Choosing Rockbeare was a no brainier for us and I even have a friend of mine book their wedding there as they loved it so much.”

Jodie Dent and Paul Courtier – 11th August 2017


 “Thank you all for a truly amazing wedding day which exceeded our expectations.  From the planning to the day itself it was all done very smoothly, professionally and to our needs.  Big thanks has to go to our Event Manager on the day, she was so friendly and calm and lovely to have her ensuring our day went without a hitch. Our guests all loved the venue and have had lovely comments of the venue and especially the quality of the food.  All the staff on the day were very attentive, friendly and professional.  We would love to relive it again and so glad we chose your venue.”

Emma Rawle & Graeme Thompson – 14th July 2017


“Simply breathtaking. We didn't need to look at any other venue. Exceeded all expectations and our guests were blown away. Many saying it's the best wedding venue they have seen. The food was exceptional, everything ran perfectly and the bedrooms just stunning. I have nothing but praise and highly recommend Rockbeare Manor. The team were fab and efficient before the wedding and during.”

Lauren Wilson & Chris Metters – 17th June 2017


“Rockbeare Manor really lives up to the brochure's promises. We had a beautiful wedding our way. Aimee, Andrew and the wonderful team at Rockbeare couldn't have been more obliging and arranged everything on the day just as we envisaged. Leaving us to enjoy the day stress free. We received so many compliments following the wedding about how stunning both the venue and food were. One person commented that the burger was the best they ever had! I can't rate Rockbeare highly enough, it's fantastic!” –

Sonia Gillard and Tom Williams – 27th May 2017


“Rockbeare Manor is a beautiful venue with stunning grounds. It's boast class, sophistication with in a relaxed environment creating the perfect setting for our wedding day. The staff are first class, the food is outstanding and it is run with professionalism and perfection. It's is a flexible venue so people can put their on stamp on it but it has structure which is what all weddings require. Andy, Aimee and their team are superb at what they do, true professionals.”

Joanne Hall & Jody Goble – 30th April 2017


“Throughout the whole experience, from undertaking initial research to massive hugs with the wedding planners as we left the venue the morning after, I continue to have the warmest glow every time I think of Rockbeare Manor - the whole experience was just exceptional.”
