We chose the Horn of Plenty as our wedding venue for a couple of reasons 1) The amazing setting, and more importantly, 2) Julie, the owner and Wedding planner. She made us feel so welcome and special from the moment we stepped into the hotel whilst looking for a venue that we knew we wanted to get married there. From that very first meeting, Julie and her team couldn't do enough to ensure our day was perfect in every way. We planned the wedding from Yorkshire and the wedding team were on always hand to answer any questions we had. The actual day was amazing. The food was out of this world. The chef had created a bespoke menu for us earlier in the year where we met with him and discussed our favourite food. He then designed a menu around this and made our favourite foods even better! All of our guests commented on how good the food was and how well ran the day went. I can't recommend The Horn of Plenty enough. It was a day to remember and we will most certainly be going back in years to come.

My husband and I married at the Horn of Plenty June 2019 and it was most wonderful experience. The breathtaking views over the valley and gorgeous venue and beautiful gardens won us over immediately. From the moment we booked, a year before, to the special day the wedding team were in close contact and always quick to reply to emails or phone calls. The day itself was amazing. I can't believe how smoothly it all went and how relaxed I felt. I think this was because everything was very organised leading up to the day. All the recommended services (florist/cake/cheese shop) were incredible and the food was delicious on the day. Thank you to Shirna and the wedding team for making the day so special for us. I wish we could do it all again!

Just returned from my 3rd or maybe even 4th visit to the Horn of Plenty. Once again it didn't disappoint. The staff were welcoming, friendly and nothing was too much bother. The room was lovely and clean and well prepared. After recently being diagnosed with Celiac disease the chef and waiting staff couldn't have been any more attentive. I really could not fault their helpfulness and understanding of the situation and made my first meal out in a while very relaxing. If I could give this place 6 stars out of 5 I would. It's a magical place if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing get away with yummy food.

As always, we had a fabulous couple of days at the Horn of Plenty. It's easy to see why they have so many guests who return again and again. Everything is always just as it should be: a wonderful room, a warm welcome, service that strikes exactly the right note of friendliness and efficiency, the MOST delicious food … why would anyone look elsewhere?

Had a wonderful one night break, had a really excellent dinner, best meal out for a long time, and equally excellent breakfast. Comfortable bed and lovely balcony, lucky enough to have good weather and be able to sit out with a glass of wine and enjoy the wonderful views.

Four of us dined and stayed here last night and were mightily impressed with the standards of the accommodation and cuisine. The staff were as obliging, friendly, and efficient as any we have encountered.

Our first stay at The Horn of Plenty but definitely won't be our last. Staff are so good and can't do enough for you. Location so good for days out, we will be back. Thank you all, Mr & Mrs Marshall
