Summer 2018

We had such a wonderful day, everything was perfect just how we wanted it.  All of the staff were so helpful and lots of guests commented on how lovely the service and food was.  Please can you pass on my thanks to everyone involved and yourself as the day went so smoothly.

Mr & Mrs Hughes

Summer 2018

We held our wedding at Craxton Wood and we couldn't have picked a better venue. From the initial booking to checking out the day after everything went so smoothly. We had the best day and wouldn't have changed a single thing.

The staff were so friendly and welcoming and made sure the whole day went without a hitch. The bridal suite is beautiful. The food at our private dining the night before and our wedding breakfast was delicious. All our guests said it was the most relaxed wedding they had ever attended. Even I, as the bride, felt very calm and I knew I could just relax and enjoy the whole day, knowing that everything was being taken care of behind the scenes. We would definitely recommend Craxton Wood as a wedding venue or for any other special occasion.

Spring Wedding

Craxton Wood Hotel a special place, complemented by the weather felt like a Royal Garden Party.

All our needs were catered for and the feedback we've had is nothing but praise about what a lovely place, the food was fabulous.

THANK YOU ALL does not express sufficiently how happy, pleased, overjoyed, delighted we are with all you did for us. We know a wedding is an expensive occasion and that is what you are in business for. Nonetheless I can only say you offer and 'deliver' value for money.

The whole team at Macdonald Craxton Wood made our daughter's wedding day a most magical occasion and we were particularly struck by how friendly and helpful everyone was; nothing was too much trouble and they helped make the day one we will treasure for the rest of our lives. We have another two daughters so I think we will be seeing a lot more of Macdonald Craxton Wood in the coming years!  We can't praise them enough and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the venue to anyone.

The staff were very helpful and made all the wedding guests feel welcome.  The way the rooms and tables were decorated were so tastefully done and added a special touch to the wedding ceremony and breakfast which felt so intimate.  The meal was excellent and many of the guests commented on how delicious the food was.  The team enabled the whole wedding experience to flow which made Mark and I feel so special.
