Words can not describe how delighted we were with the wedding and the weekend, Smedmore House = No 1 wedding venue, thank you all sooooo much 21st Sept 2019 Bride’s Parents

…….with the most fairytale of receptions at the magnificent Smedmore House.  All our dreams came true here and Lottie was fab!! Thank you.  Bride & Groom Sept 2019

I just want to say what a fabulous time we had at Smedmore House last weekend. Rosie and Ewan’s wedding was absolutely wonderful. We couldn’t have asked for more amazing weather and fabulous place to have it. Julie, thank you for all you did and also a big thank you to Fiona who was wonderful and to Charlotte too for overseeing on the Saturday. 14th Sept 2019 Bride’s Mother

Thank you for the wonderful warmth and feeling of home.  We loved everything –from the book collection, planting in the garden, the real village – the old maps with their dubious names!! Huge dinners on the antique chairs and adding herbs, apples etc from your garden into the cooking.  Thank you for a  beautifully maintained property, for the authenticity- after renting so many big houses if felt akin to goldilocks finding her perfect bowl of porridge.  Not too done up, not cold and austere – just perfections!!  House party Aug 2019

Amazing! I loved walking through the rooms and imagining what it was like back in the day. 26th Sept 2018

What a pleasure to be in such interesting surroundings.  This is not a museum but rather a wonderful personal collection which is being so generously shared!  One is transported through time by the amazing mix of art and artefacts.  Thank you so much for sharing! 9th Sept 2018:  Bride’s parents

Thank you for making our wedding so special.  It was everything we ever wanted!! 9th Sept 2018: Bride and Groom

Far more subtle colour combinations than Renishaw Hall.  Greater leisure grounds than Kedleston Hall.  Nick’s fish, Glyn’s veg and black pudding by Mr. Hole.  Smedmore: My desire and pursuit of the whole. 30th August 2018

We had the most amazing weekend with our family and friends.  It was our daughter’s wedding weekend and Smedmore House was the perfect place to celebrate.  The staff were so accommodating and helpful.  Everyone so fantastic.  Thank you so much and hope to see you again one day. 24th Aug 2018:  Bride’s mother

Yes it was special and memorable to stay in a house full of treasures.  We knew it would be lovely but it was truly amazing.  A beautiful characterful house – a privilege to stay in it!  Feb 2017

The most fantastic place.  A superb house with lots of history, gorgeous glass and china and the most brilliant rooms.  We were superbly looked after.  Thank you for sharing your home.  Feb 2017

Thanks to the whole team who look after the house we had a memorable 80th birthday weekend for Mum.  A surprisingly warm house on a wintery weekend.Feb 2017

The perfect way to celebrate 50 years for the Golden couple.  The kids (big and small) loved playing on the beach and lawn. April 2017

The worst thing about Smedmore is having to leave! Fabulous time in a lovely place.

Thank you for the loan of this beautiful house – the perfect place to celebrate my 50th birthday.  We have had a wonderful time and appreciated this grand home.  We hope to return another day to relive the splendid scenery and comfortable elegant house.  We had the perfect setting for our Murder mystery night – recommend offering it as an option for guests in the future!
