From the first initial contact with a list of criteria that most venues would shy away from, including several gundogs being involved the guys at Villa Farm embraced every request and delivered perfectly. We cannot thank them enough for making our weekend and wedding all we ever wanted. Our family still rave about it being the best wedding ever and that is all down to the unbelievable dedication that the Villa Farm team put in

Villa Farm has a wonderful organisation, Corrina gives options, is flexible after a new idea, is creative after the demands of the client; she can recommend all types of suppliers; has a wonderful location, pretty, big enough to provide different options and to hold different kinds of events. The buildings are clean, fresh, cosy, and at the same time the doors of each cottage lead to the fresh surroundings of Villa Farm fields. Each member of Villa Farm staff is nice, gentle, proactive, give good service. The pond is a unique spot for photo shoots, photos that will remain forever. Villa Farm is a beautiful place, full of magic and with Corrina’s wonderful charisma makes the hectic organisation so smooth and simple. We had a fantastic wedding on Villa Farm, and I was told by my guests that they enjoyed the best wedding of their lives. We couldn’t be in a better place than Villa Farm!! Villa Farm is a guarantee of a successful event!

Corrina and her team were totally committed to supporting us in every aspect of our wedding. They helped us turn our initial original ideas into reality within our budget. They are resourceful, creative, practical, tactful and patient. We had so much confidence in them we were able to relax and enjoy the wedding from start to finish, they really made a difference. The venue itself is ideal for weddings. Close enough to the amenities provided by York but a real country venue. The site is very well kept, safe and practical, very spacious but has a cosy, romantic atmosphere. The lake, woodland and fields are a haven for birds / wildlife which adds to the wonderful atmosphere, along with the horses and ducks. Plenty of scope for photography. The on-site accommodation is first class and good value for money. This company REALLY does care about their customers!

This venue goes out of the way to help and make every step easy, the owner just wants your day to go well and takes all the worry away from the bride. The venue itself lets you do and have anything you like no dictations on what food and where you must get things from

From day one (booking) all the way up to the wedding day, the staff at Villa Farm (especially Corrina) were fantastic. I had the best wedding day I could possibly have hoped for and that was due to the flexibility of the venue- I truly was able to organise what I wanted and was only given ideas, not told what options I HAD to have (as is the case at some other venues). A fantastic place!
Katie & Rob Cooper, March 2013
The perfect wedding venue. Villa Farm’s flexible approach enabled us to create the best day of our lives. Corrina and her team were incredibly friendly, helpful, relaxed and nothing was too much trouble. Amazing!
Krista & Chris Wood, May 2013
Having literally viewed hundreds of venues we can honestly say that nowhere came close to Villa Farm. We couldn’t believe our luck when we found it as it was absolutely perfect and offered completely incomparable value for money. From the moment we first viewed the venue to after the wedding, Corrina and all the staff were fully committed to us. The entire planning process couldn’t have been easier and the team were fully supportive of what we were trying to achieve. Corrina, the venue manager, was completely approachable, providing recommendations and guidance when required whilst also being more than happy to accommodate the ideas we had. On the day the whole team had a unique ability to blend in to the background whilst also being immediately reachable if needed for anything. Again nothing was too much trouble and they really did go above and beyond for us and our guests.

Thank you so much for all your hard work and help at our wedding, Your attention to detail was perfect and made our day everything we had dreamed of. We were able to relax and enjoy our day because we knew that Corrina was taking care of everything. A beautiful venue, made perfect by you! Thank you
Natasha & Richard Merchant, May 2014
We would like to say a massive thank you for all your hard work for our wedding, It couldn’t have run more smoothly thanks to you and your team. Everyone had an amazing time and loved the venue.
Claire & Rob Powell, May 2014
We just want to say a massive thank you for everything you did to make our day and the weekend perfect. The flowers, cocktail bar, everything was amazing and we are so very grateful for your efforts and quick thinking in producing the buffet and helping to save the day! We could not have wished for anything else on our special day, love Sam and Claire
Claire & Sam Hart, September 2014
The whole day went perfectly from start to finish. You were so helpful and reassuring from the planning before hand to the day itself and we knew we were in good hands with you as our wedding coordinator. All the special extra touches like giving Carrie and Steve (our friends who performed the first dance) shots and making sure that Ziggy and I had everything we needed on the day. We felt really well looked after and the service from you and your staff was second to none. It really was the best day of our lives and so many of our friends and family said that it was the best wedding they have ever been to! We’re really happy that we chose Villa Farm, the setting was perfect for what we had in mind and we would highly recommend the venue.
