"Literally there is everything you could possibly need here. It’s so well equipped and in a stunning location. The worst part is that you have to leave. We hired out the whole venue for the weekend to have a family get together and it was absolutely perfect! Can not recommend the place and the owners highly enough. If you want a chilled out space to relax and enjoy yourselves then this is THE place to be. Only regret is that we didn’t stay longer. Awesome. Created some wonderful memories."
"Absolutely loved our time at a Teybrook Orchard. Facilities were perfect. The marquee and awning is a fantastic space for a large group to be together and still feel spacious and not on top of each other. Every member of our party was so thrilled with the accommodation, it was a fantastic weekend. Thank you so much, will definitely recommend you and will certainly be coming back!"
"Chalkney Water Meadows was such a fantastic venue for our festival-style corporate event! It’s such a beautiful spot in the countryside but with all the amenities for a really great party, regardless of the weather. Helen was really helpful, putting us in contact with suppliers and discreetly being on hand for the big event. We couldn’t have asked for a better venue for what turned out to be a fabulous day."
"Just wanted to say thank you once more! Everything was absolutely perfect and we couldn't have wished for a more beautiful place for our wedding to take place! You have been really helpful, responsive and flexible around our (many!) questions and queries so we really appreciate it :)"
"We just wanted to email to say the biggest thankyou from us both for yesterday. We had an absolutely amazing day and we are so so happy that we were able to celebrate at your venue with all our family and friends. They all loved the site. Your help from the beginning has been fantastic and a real pleasure to work with you guys."
"I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you on behalf of Tom and I for a truly magical day. We had an absolutely amazing time, I honestly don't think that it could have gone better. Thank you for all your hard work and efforts. The log cabin was amazing, we were so sad to leave there yesterday, but alas all good things have to come to an end."
“What heroes Nat and Arch were. Thank you so much for giving our party such snazzy boogie shoes- you handled all the drunken 50 year olds brilliantly with the increasingly slurred requests. The sound system was fab and the lights really made the party glow and twinkle. Everybody loved it! Thank you so much guys.”
“Walked in, shown around the most beautiful place ever! Then followed by Dan proposing. Best start to a holiday. Such a beautiful setting. Well laid out and very well equipped, brilliant service. Archie is lovely, very polite and accommodating. Thank you!”
“Archie and Nat were amazing. We have had the best weekend. Wow what a beautiful place. We will back again and would highly recommend. The showers were fab and hot. The toilet facilities were super too. Kitchen is amazing with everything you need. Thanks to you both.”
“Still keep thinking about our amazing day. I know we’re biased but it was seriously the best wedding we’ve ever been to. This is the thoughts of all our guests too. Cant thank you enough for making it such a success!”
