We got married in September 2020 having had to delay our original date due to lockdown and having to reduce our original numbers too. Communication during lockdown was not happening which increased our anxiety, with one week to go it all happened very quickly and we could not have been better looked after by the staff at the Baytree. It is the most magical place to get married and most of our guest wish to return in the future. The food was mazing , the rooms clean and the most comfortable, the décor was very stylish. A must for every discerning couple.
We had a wonderful Spring wedding at the Bay Tree Hotel in April 2019. The first time we went there I knew it was exactly what we were looking for. The staff were amazing from start to finish, even when we went for our menu tasting they made us feel so special. It took a lot of stress out of it as I knew I could trust them to make everything perfect, and I wasn't wrong. We had exclusive use and some of our guests said it was the nicest wedding they have ever been too. The food was amazing and they even managed to cater to some issues on the day where guests hadn't informed me of all their dietary requirements! They had my notes for the decorations etc, but when I walked down to get married it all looked more beautiful then I had even imagined. If you get married here you will not regret it! We are going back for our anniversary and I can't wait!
We got married at The Bay Tree Hotel on Saturday 28th December 2019.
We had a fantastic day and the team at the hotel were outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent and all our guests loved staying in the quirky and individual rooms. Breakfast the next morning was very good and gave us the chance to catch up with our guests before sadly saying goodbye. Our thanks to Maureen, Alba and the rest of the team for magical memories.
Beautiful, stunning venue. All the staff were amazing making the whole day run smoothly without a hitch. The wedding coordinator Maureen was so helpful from the day we booked all the way through to the day.
I had briefly been living in Cape Town when we decided to have a January Wedding in England. I trawled through dozens and dozens of venues online and in the end took a bit of a punt on The Bay Tree - it looked beautiful and it really wasn’t madly expensive. I paid the deposit without even having seen it! I visited when I was home in the July and was blown away by it. I was sooo happy! We were married on Saturday 12th January 2019 in the late afternoon/early evening. We invited guests to stay In the Friday too and it made for the most AMAZING weekend. I have some very fussy friends and they were incredibly impressed by everything. The bedrooms are to die for and the food was delicious. Lots of candles and log fires added to the atmosphere. We had a caricaturist (Jonathan Cusick) who was just brilliant (not your usual caricatures - very lifelike. You have to look him up) It added a fun dimension to the daytime. Maureen and her team were relaxed yet incredibly efficient. They totally took away any stress. Our friends still talk about it now. I want to do it all over again!! (with the same husband though ;)
Steve and I married at The Bay Tree in July 2019 and everything was perfect - even the weather! Our guests commented on the fabulous food and service and the gorgeous rooms. It is an amazing place and the perfect venue for a perfect day.
We married at The Bay Tree in July 2019 and hand on heart there is not a single thing (apart from the weather as it rained all day!) that we would change, it was perfect from start to finish.
The Bay Tree is absolutely beautiful and the amazing staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome & special. My husband had a suit disaster on the morning of the wedding and Paf was on hand to help get it cleaned and he even went to the shop to get the best man a newspaper! Literally nothing is too much trouble.
All of the team deserve to be mentioned for their hard work, attention to detail and dedication, in particular Paf (I do not understand when this man gets any rest!) Maureen, Helen & Alba. Thank you all so much for making our wedding day the best day of our lives!
I honestly didn't expect the attention detail (personalised menus during our menu tasting for example) & high levels of service (food served from the guest's right at the same time, all with a nod from Paf) that we received whilst planning and on the wedding day itself - the team had thought of everything. You really can relax and enjoy your day knowing it's all in hand. The team are really experienced and it shows!
Pretty much all of our guests have said how lovely their rooms were, how well organised the wedding was, how great the food was and how professional and attentive the staff were. One of my friends has even said she wants our exact wedding when she marries next year!
If you're reading this because you're thinking of booking your wedding here then please do not hesitate to book the Bay Tree, I promise you won't regret it.
We want to just say a huge thank you! I don't even know where to start - The day ran flawlessly, I didn't have to think of a single thing, you took care of everything down to the tiniest details. That is probably testament to your fantastic planning and attention to detail. The food was incredible and piping hot, the venue looked amazing and the breakfast food and layout in the morning was great and a lovely opportunity to spend a bit more time with our guests.
All of the small details made it extra special, the personalised menus (at the tasting, and on the day), the card and chocolates in our room, sorting out the music for us, accommodating every ask - including our crazy karaoke.
All of our guests have commented on how fantastic the venue was, how great their rooms were, how tasty and hot the food was... everyone had the best time!
Danny and I had the best day of our lives and we owe you a huge thanks for that, we are very grateful to you and the whole team at The Bay Tree. The entire experience has been so positive, even the menu tasting exceeded our expectations.
We look forward to seeing you again in the future when we visit the Bay Tree.
