    I cannot sing enough praises about Dartmouth House and the team. I can’t believe what an incredible stroke of luck it was that an outcome of all the hours spent searching for a venue was the most lovely, memorable summer wedding we could have asked for. A special recognition needs to go to our coordinator Camilla Criswell. Our original coordinator left quite abruptly after we signed our contract, to no fault of the venue’s, and much to our dismay as a couple new to wedding planning in general. From the moment Camilla stepped in however, she took the time to understand us as a couple and our ideas for the wedding day, catch up on anything that had been discussed with our previous coordinator, and address any gaps that were the result of switching coordinators. Camilla was always extremely responsive on email, patient and meticulous with details. She took the time to give us unbiased opinions and suggestions, and very much gave us the sense all the way through our interactions that everything was under control which, for a couple getting married for the first time, is much needed. Her wealth of experience was extremely clear from our interactions as at no point did we feel like ‘just another couple’ getting married at Dartmouth House. The food at Dartmouth house is also nothing short of fantastic. The taste and presentation were equally matched in impressiveness. We were able to attend a tasting beforehand which in itself is an experience, and a very nice way for us as a couple to experience a part of the wedding that would fly by on the day. You would also not expect much from house wines typically, but the Dartmouth House house wine is lovely. To the point that we had tried other wines that could have been paired with the food and still preferred the house wine. Before our wedding we had visited Dartmouth house a few different times, that by the time the wedding rolled around, we felt a familiarity with it and all the lovely people who make up one of the most professional teams I’ve had the pleasure of seeing in action at any wedding. On the day of the wedding, Camilla and her colleague Roman took care of everything, needing minimal guidance, with not a single thing going wrong by the end of the day. The wider team at Dartmouth house is warm, ever present and there is a real sense of collaboration amongst everyone. The venue on the day of our wedding looked gorgeous and we had endless comments from our guests about it. Our suppliers also commented on how wonderful the team were to work with. All in all, I would strongly encourage every couple to consider Dartmouth House as their wedding venue. The team go above and beyond to make your day special, the location of the venue is so convenient for guests, and the venue and food together are spectacular. There was nowhere else we would have chosen anyway as from the moment we happened across it we knew it was perfect for us. However now on reflection there is nowhere else we can think of that is better for a wedding in general. Thank you to the team at Dartmouth House!!

    My husband and I have picked the Dartmouth House for our wedding, and it was the best day of our lives. The whole Dartmouth House team was a pleasure to work with. Everything was perfectly organised, and they thought of every small detail. The food was very delicious, and of course the venue itself was breathtakingly beautiful. I still cannot stop thinking about the gorgeous staircase, long drawing room and courtyard. All of our guests have told us throughout the whole day how much they were in love with the venue. The team has perfectly prepared each room, and announced our entrance before entering each area. This made the experience even more magical. We will forever remember this day and would like to thank the incredible Dartmouth House Team.

    Fabulous venue for The White Company Christmas party. It looks stunning from the outside and doesn't disappoint once through the grand entrance. The welcome was warm, and the staff were very friendly and attentive all evening. Two opulent staircases led us up to the first floor, where we partied until late evening. The bar staff were kept busy by our thirsty workforce whilst other staff kept us fed with a selection of food throughout the evening. Music played later on in another large room until it was finally time for us to claim our coats and head home. It's a fantastic venue for any special event. I look forward to going again next year.

    A truly beautiful building with a very interesting history. It was redesigned at the end of the nineteenth century great interior design features well deserving of its Grade II Listed Building status.

    Absolutely brilliant! Venue is beautiful and everyone pulled out the stops and we managed to organise (4th attempt) a stunning wedding. The food was great, staff a delight to work with and I really couldn’t fault anything. Biggest thank you to everyone.
