We had a fantastic day (despite the weather!) and would really like to thank everyone at Dartington so much for all their hard work. Many of our guests commented on how well organised the day was and how great the food was.

Natalie, our wedding coordinator, was excellent at helping us to organise our big day and answering all of our questions, and meeting with us on site a number of times. The staff present on the day of the wedding were equally fantastic, making the day run smoothly, and decorating the Great Hall beautifully with added extras that we weren’t expecting (fairy lights around the plants, bunting in the entrance hall, candles lit on the window sills and fireplace).
Everyone who wanted to stay was easily accommodated at a very reasonable rate which included breakfast. As the weather could have been an issue on our day (luckily it wasn’t) we needed somewhere which also had room for children to let off a little steam, each wing has a lovely guest lounge which was fab for just this – allowing children to spread out and colour/play when bored. The food and service during the day was to a high standard, locally sourced and delicious.
Dartington was an easy choice for our wedding as it is simply the most beautiful venue imaginable! The gardens are just amazing, offering something different for each season and the buildings and architecture are very special. The big day was perfect, went without a hitch! In part, due to the logistical abilities of the staff who were very professional and attentive to our needs throughout the day (and well into the night!)
Natalie the wedding planner made all of the organisation so easy for us. She and the team did a fantastic job on the day and we were so surprised with all the final touches such as arranging the drinks in a heart shape for the reception. The attention to detail was amazing and we couldn’t have asked for anything more, the day went so smoothly and was so far better than we could have ever expected. We cannot thank the team at Dartington Hall enough, they even organised sunshine for us on the day!
I think Dartington is the most wonderful place in the world to get married and I couldn’t recommend it highly enough! The gardens are incredibly beautiful, and we were lucky enough to have an outside ceremony under blue skies and birdsong. The Great Hall is also a stunning place for a Wedding Breakfast/Reception, and the food was delicious too! All the staff at Dartington were absolutely brilliant – attentive, professional, friendly and went out of their way to make the day and night run smoothly. It was an absolute pleasure and I wish I could do it all over again – and I know our guests loved every second too so very very happy customers!
The service at the reception, from when we arrived, right through to when I eventually went to bed at 2.30am Sunday was first class… a massive thank you to our wedding organiser, Rebecca Smith, for all her help and organisation before and during the day. Whilst I kept in the background as much as possible during the organisation of the day, the bride and groom fully appreciated all her support, guidance and patience. When we met her she inspired confidence that the day would run smoothly and her advice was appreciated.
