Absolutely wonderful for our family and friends

“Thank you for providing such a stunning venue for our wedding reception. It was absolutely wonderful for our family and friends, many of whom came from different parts of the country, to be able to enjoy the beautiful house and gardens with a glass of champagne. Thank you again to all at Forde Abbey for all your help and for allowing us to personalise your wonderful place for the day. It really helped turn our big day into our dream wedding.”
