I know a lot of people were in the same boat as us this year with having to post pone their weddings, we originally planned a March wedding on the 28/04/20 on a special winter deal. Then obviously lock down hit on the 23rd, the venue was so understanding and accommodating throughout it all and even allowed us to continue our March deal on our next chosen date. We had a second attempt at getting married in September 2020 and then finally managed to tie the know on 17/09/21. And not only were the staff amazing, the venue is just beautiful and we were able to have our wedding breakfast in the most stunning conservatory room where we could see out to the lake. I really wish we could relive the day over and over. So would definitely recommend Hornsbury Mill 100%

Dear Jane, Sophie & all the team at Hornsbury Mill,

We would like to say a huge thank you for the wonderful hospitality and support you gave us and Gemma & Andrew on their wedding. It has been a real rollercoaster from when we originally booked back in 2018! But we all made it through to 2021 and it was a day which exceeded their hopes and dreams.

Thank you,
With our love & best wishes,
Martin & Sarah

Absolutely couldn’t have picked a better venue for our wedding on 1st Feb 2020. From the very first meeting to our final goodbyes yesterday it was an absolute pleasure to work with Jane and the rest of the team.
They answered my questions regardless of how silly or small, nothing was too much trouble!
From the moment we arrived on Friday evening, we were made to feel special. Jane checked on me and my bridal party throughout the morning of Saturday right up until the moment we entered the ceremony room, ensuring that we understood everything that was going to happen. My guests were made to feel very welcome and were served lovely food and drink.
During the evening Chloe was attentive and could do more for us to ensure all our needs were met. The evening food was fabulous and just what we wanted. They even made sure that we had a platter to our room for when we retired as they knew brides and grooms don’t get chance to eat!
I cannot thank them all enough for all of the help, support and hard work! As a bride, I didn’t feel like “just a number” I felt like I was important to them and this was a very special experience all round!! Thank you xx

We had our wedding here on the 26th of October and it was a wonderful day. The venue and grounds were lovely. The cornloft is amazing for the ceremony and the orangery is perfect for the wedding breakfast.The food was top notch and our guests well catered for. Lyndsay, Jane and all the staff were attentive to the guests and ourselves. They really made everyone relax and kept the day running smoothly. Throughout the planning process Lyndsay was always quick in responding to any questions we had. Nothing was too much trouble and they were very accommodating of our requests. Lyndsay’s and Jane’s experience really shone through on the day!

We also had guests stay for the weekend and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves and loved the breakfast.

We would wholeheartedly recommend having your wedding at Hornsbury Mill or staying for a night or two!

Absolutely amazing time spent here for my wedding yesterday. All the staff were lovely and listened to everything I wanted for my wedding. They made it extra special for me and my husband. I highly recommend this venue and the amazing staff that work there. X

Hornsbury Mill, an amazing place to stay, friendly, helpful staff, comfortable rooms with excellent service. Delicious food, beautiful grounds, loads of original features. We will be back in the near future. Highly recommend a stay here.

February 2019

My husband and I stayed at Hornsbury Mill for one night earlier this week and wish it had been longer. The room was very comfortable and clean and the food was excellent, both for the evening meal and breakfast. The staff are welcoming and friendly, whilst being efficient. I received a phone call during our trip home telling me I’d left my jewellery in the bedroom – they very kindly returned it to me by registered post, so not only is everybody at Hornsbury Mill friendly and efficient, they are also honest and caring. My thanks to them all for a fabulous stay and lovely meals, but also for the return of my treasured jewellery

My daughters wedding !
Thank you to all the staff that made my daughter’s wedding so perfect , so friendly and with personal touches , beautiful scenery ,rooms are clean and cosy , food was lovely can’t thank you enough

From the start of our wedding enquiry to the morning after we got married we cannot fault Jane or any of the staff at Hornsbury Mill. Everything we asked for was achieved with no problems what so ever. We had the most amazing day and our guests also loved it. Thank you all for absolutely everything.
Love, Mr and Mrs Paice xx

From start to finish, Jane and her Team were fantastic and did everything they could to make sure our day went as smoothly as possible. They let us Skype the ceremony to my Nan who was in the nursing home and couldn’t make the big day. Thanks to everyone for making it happen.

Superb venue, superb staff.

On first meeting Jane and seeing the venue we knew Hornsbury Mill was the place to have our wed-ding. Jane was in constant contact throughout and her professionalism was second to none. Amazing venue.

We have been liasing with Jane for over two years in regards to our wedding. From start to finish, she has been simply amazing. She always greets us with a hug and a smile and makes us feel so wel-come. Nothing is too much trouble and she is extremely approachable and understanding. Jane and her team at Hornsbury are ultimate professionals and every part of the wedding package was deliv-ered to an extremely high standard. We wholeheartedly recommend Jane and the Hornsbury Mill team to any couple Looking for a venue to host their wedding and/or Reception – they won’t be dis-appointed!

From the first initial email, Jane has been so accommodating and helpful. We had to book our wed-ding reception from abroad and we chose Hornsbury Mill not just for its stunning location but mainly due to Jane’s helpful and relaxing attitude. She recognised how difficult it was to organise a wedding from abroad and provided all the information that we asked for straight away in an extremely re-laxed and friendly manner. In fact, it was because of Jane’s initial help that we booked Hornsbury Mill without even seeing the venue. We knew that with people like Jane and her team on board that we were going to have the perfect wedding and we did! We miss our regular contact with Jane and Hornsbury Mill now our wedding is over!

Brilliant service, very laid back and let you enjoy your day. They do everything for you.

The setting is beautiful. Jane is so friendly and makes you feel at ease. We knew the first time we went there, it was the place.

Venue looked perfect, all down to our wedding coordinator – Jane.

Jane was accommodating, approachable and nothing was too much of a problem.

She continued to support us in the lead up to the Wedding, and has been in contact since the big day.

We had been to another wedding at Hornsbury mill before and liked how this took place. We also liked the new orangery that was built and thought it would be perfect for our wedding.

Jane was very attentive to our needs on our wedding day. If I needed to contact her prior to our wedding day, Jane was always on hand and ready to help.

Paying for my wedding became problematic at one point, however, Jane was more than happy to agree on a payment plan with me and my husband and put all her trust in us to deliver on our prom-ise. For that we will be eternally grateful.

I had dreamt of a wedding outside and in the English countryside. Hornsbury Mill was the perfect setting. With the option to marry inside or out and the lake as a beautiful backdrop, I wouldn’t have wanted to marry anywhere else. My husband and I decided Hornsbury Mill would be our wedding venue after the 1st visit and cancelled all other venue visits. The cost wasn’t overly expensive and Jane was happy for work out a plan the suited our budget nicely.

I would highly recommend Jane and the rest of the staff at Hornsbury Mill as the perfect setting for all weddings.

Made everything extremely easy and our wedding was booked at relatively short notice.

We absolutely loved the venue and were really impressed with janes comittment and enthusiasm.

The owners and staff of this hotel will do absolutely anything to make you feel welcome and looked after. The rooms are all different and have been furnished to match the “quaint” style of the building. All of the bathrooms have been modernized and the bar and kitchen are always top notch. While I stay at the property for business, and dont take advantage of the beautiful surroundings (complete with pond, ducks and peacocks), it is an absolutely lovely venue for weddings or other group functions. Just a heads up that the cell coverage is pretty weak, although the newly refurbed WiFi works just fine. All in all a very nice place to stay and a fair price with great people!

August 2018

Delightful location, delicious food, comfortable spacious room . I stayed with my little Grandson and even he was impressed especially with his pancakes for Breakfast. Will stay again hopefully for a longer stay .

September 2018

Stayed for 3 days and was pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a suite, beautiful comfy bed and spotlessly clean, all your usual extras, tea coffee, shampoo, shower gel etc.

All of the staff were so lovely and attentive, friendly and welcoming.

We ate at the restaurant each nite and the food was really tasty, all home cooked and fresh with great varied menu, and very generous portions, especially the pies, this was a bonus as no where around the hotel or in chard looked appealing to eat, also the breakfast was fab offering practically everything you could want.

The hotel is set at an old mill and the grounds were stunning and peaceful with ducks geese and peacocks, very relaxing Sat by the pond.

Highly recommend this hotel if staying in this neck of the woods, close to lyme regis and the Jurassic coast which is gorgeous.

Thank you to everyone who made our break so special.

From start to finish we could not fault Jane. Welcomed with a massive hug from the first time we met we immediately felt part of the Hornsbury Meal family. Every request we made was immediately replied with ‘of course’ and nothing was too much trouble. Before the wedding Jane responded to all emails and calls immediately. She is one marvellous woman and her team are also outstanding. I’m a very demanding person and like everything to be just so otherwise I get stressed, my family and friends were amazed how chilled I was throughout all the planning and especially on our special day. Our friends and family we also made to feel like part HM family by Jane. A truly perfect day and this would not have been possible with this amazing lady! We have so much love for her and HM. Xxx

From the moment we met Jane, the team along with George the peacock we felt so relaxed, at home and one of the family.

Fantastic venue fantastuc staff jayne made us and all our guests very welcome nothing was to much trouble at all

Fell in love with the venue and its beautiful surroundings and the way in which the staff were polite and not pushy in any way and gave me time to think and book my wedding

I really could not fault Jane, her team and the venue. Her professionalism, skills, hard-work, friendly manner, and good humour help make the day so memorable, Jane was such a calming influence throughout the planning stage and when when the stress of the occasion started to get to our daughter She is also intuitive and can any identify potential difficulties early on. We had to move the wedding ceremony inside due to the weather and this was all done so efficiently and without caus-ing to the day. After the ceremony the weather improved and we were able to move outside to en-joy the wonderful setting at Hornsbury Mill.

Both sets of us parents and Helen and Ollie visited several potential venues in Somerset and Devon and Dorset and we all had a really positive feeling about the venue and Jane and her team. It got a unanimous vote even though it was up against some really good alternatives. Helen and Ollie had their own ideas on how they wanted the day to run and Jane was happy to take it all on board and give her help and advice on how best to achieve it all.

We also had the indoor option with sufficient seating for 90 and the accommodation for the wed-ding party guests.My wife and I also dropped in to the venue when we were in the error a few months after the wedding booking and had a very nice dinner.

Beautiful setting, lovely helpful staff. Good value.

Jane was so helpful and put us both at ease from the start, nothing was too much trouble.

We were made to feel like “part of the family” rather than just customers.

The lead up to the wedding was stress free due to Jane managing all the finer details, she was always on hand to answer any questions and sort any problems.

The day of the wedding went like a dream, this was because Jane was there from start to finish.

We wanted to get married outside in the Gazebo, the weather was not on our side so we resigned ourselves that this would not happen and would get married inside, an equally beautiful setting, 15 minutes before the ceremony the sun came out, Jane changed everything last minute and set up outside for us! this was such a lovely thing to do!

Jane deserves this award for all her commitment and hard work she puts in, we most certainly were made to feel like royalty on our special day which was magical!

When we viewed Hornsbury Mill (we viewed about 8 venues in total) we felt an instant connection with Jane, she was so approachable and cared about us as a couple.

The venue itself is intimate and in a wonderful setting with a lake and gardens, perfect, Jane insures that everything is spotless and works hard to achieve this.

Jane was not pushy in any way, she gave us time to look around, our wedding was unforgettable thanks to Jane.

We were so lucky to have such a wonderful day thanks to Jane.

What a fabulous day we had on Saturday for our Wedding! right from the word go when the planning started Jayne and her team were so helpful and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble.We wanted the ceremony outside but due to the weather it was touch and go!
Jane went all out to see that this happened and the ceremony went ahead in the Gazebo!
Everything was perfect and ran smoothly, all our guests were very complimentary about the venue (beautiful!) and the food (delicious!)
We did not want the day to end but sadly it did.
Cannot recommend this venue highly enough for a wedding, personal and friendly and beautiful surroundings.
Thank you so much Jayne for all your undivided attention.
We will be back soon with some photographs to show you.Much love, Nickie and Jeff Rook. xxx

I attended a family wedding reception here at the weekend. What a superb setting it was. Beautiful lake and gardens which I’m sure will make the wedding photos absolutely stunning as we were blessed with a sunny day! On arrival we were all offered pimms, Somerset cider punch or a non alcoholic drink and canapés. There were plenty of staff on hand to assist with this, all very pleasant and helpful. We were shown into the function room and seated for our meal. All tables were served one at a time by competent staff. The food was very well presented and delicious. Desserts were awesome particularly the choux swans!! We returned to the beautiful grounds while the rooms were prepared for the evening but I understand that there was a comfy lounge that could have been used! An evening disco and buffet followed which again was delicious and well staffed. I cannot fault this place, from beginning to end the day was such a positive one and my only regret is that we were unable to stay over night with the rest of the wedding party as I’m sure this would have added to the whole experience. Thank you to everyone at Hornsbury Mill for an amazing time and helping us all make such wonderful memories of the wedding day.
