Truly a stunning venue. I rented the place to launch my bag range and it was the perfect place because I did not need to do too much in terms of decor! 😀 STUNNING is an understatement ♥️ You won’t go wrong here, trust me!

Burkleigh house is hidden gem in the heart of Ferndale and it was absolutely perfect for our wedding day. Victoria is amazing , super friendly and very helpful. Her food is to die for and all our guests raved about the food. The venue was exactly what we wanted. The venue hire is rather expensive and no prices include VAT when you initially look at the prices so just be sure to add the VAT 1st to see if it fits into your budget. They also add VAT to your deposit but you don't receive the VAT back from your deposit. Had a few issues with the owner Patricia but the friendliness and professionalism of Victoria made up for this. The rooms are stunning and very neat,clean and comfortable.

We could not have chosen a better venue for our special day! This is the perfect venue for an intimate wedding. Not only is the venue absolutely magnificent but the people are truly a pleasure to deal with. They are accomodating in every possible way. The service in the lead up to the wedding was great... both Patricia and Victoria are the nicest people and so professional to deal with. We hired out all the rooms for our guests to stay over and our guests absolutely loved their accomodation. The rooms are absolutely beautiful, luxurious, so comfortable and cosy and very clean. We shared a lovely breakfast the next morning with some of our guests as well. Victoria is the chef and manager of the venue and I could not say a bad word about her... her service was amazing and her menu and food was incredible..nothing was too much for her no matter what i asked!! Our guests all raved about the food. We had a wedding of 80 people which was quite a big number for the venue and each and every meal was cooked perfectly and they handled the pressure like champions. The bridal room is a show stopper... and the snacks and service on the day I could not fault, the staff are so friendly and helpful. The team and venue is best described as classy and professional in every way! Thank you Patricia, Victoria and the Burkleigh House team for incredible service and excellence, our wedding day was truly perfect!
