I attended a wedding at Cranford and I have to say the scenery is beautiful. The chalet I stayed in was great, although I would have liked my room to have a shower, not just a bath. Otherwise it was very quaint and had a lovely lake view. The breakfasts were nice, although the

We recently got married at Cranford and we could not be happier with our choice of venue. From the moment we decided on Cranford the team was nothing short of exceptional in the service they provided us. We had to do all the planning while based in the UK and our queries were

Dear Liza & Warren, Thank you so much for taking the time to write such an amazing review. We truly value your comments. We were honored to be such an intricate part of planning your special day. It truly was an absolute pleasure working with both of you. From start to finish the planning process was so easy and on the day everything ran so smoothly from the beautiful ceremony at the chapel, to the reception dinner. Even the rain couldn't put a damper on things. We would like to wish you both a lifetime of happiness and we look forward to hopefully seeing you in the near future. Possibly for your one year anniversary. With much love from the Cranford team.

We went for a wedding and the grounds are fabulous. Unfortunately, I couldnt find many places to go for a walk, which is a shame. The pool looks lovely but as it rained the whole time we were there, we didnt get to try it out. The food was average compared to what I am used

Dear Melkai, Thank you for your review and lovely comments about our fabulous grounds, lovely pool and good food. It is unfortunate that it rained during your stay, the midlands is such a beautiful part of our country but sometimes we can have four seasons in one day and we are always grateful for rain. We wish you had inquired at reception about our many walks that are all around us, we are so lucky to be surrounded by nature. wifi is not available in the rooms but we do have fantastic wifi hotpots which work very well. We hope you will return to Cranford in the future and we wish you all the best.

"They all looked amazing but if you can get the dairy cottage grab it with both hands."
"I was in the Dairy (honeymoon suite) but from what i did see, and heard, all the rooms are stunning."
"The cottages near the dam are further away from the activity, unless there is a party in the pool-side boma"
"Room with the lake view really do have a good view"
"The beauty of Cranford's accommodation is that you can choose from a simple bedroom en suite or a large self-catering cottage."
