"Caters for weddings and events"
"Cressbrook Hall is a very beautiful secluded venue set in 23 areas of woodlands with stunning gardens. The orangery is a really nice room, decorated abundantly with fresh flowers that overlooks the gardens and the Wye Valley with excellent views. It is ideally suited for the smaller Wedding party of up to around 80 people. More can be catered for but some would have to be seated in other rooms which I think would make them feel removed from the other guests. There are a variety of accommodation options available ranging from rooms in the hall itself to various sized cottages in the grounds. A small bar provides a decent range of draught beer, lager, bottles and spirits. A play area is provided in the lower gardens with swings, trampoline and mini football pitch for younger guests. Attention may be needed if any guests are disabled or elderly as there are steps into various rooms, especially toilets which are downstairs from the function room. As the venue is very secluded thought should also be given to transport as taxis are pretty sparse and may be expensive. n"

"Situated in a beautiful area of countryside, this venue is ideally suitable for Wedding parties. The hall area is of a Gothic appearance and has beautiful views and nice gardens for photographs. Lovely food. There is also car parking though not a large amount."

No sound limiter
No useable in-house lighting effects
No specific dancefloor area
No stage area
No effective blackout
PARKING: Lacking. Park outside building to unload then move to grass parking area.
ACCESS: No direct access through the building, you have to go round the outside with no vehicle access. Down 10 old slippery stone steps into gardens then approx. 70 metres along gravel paths. Wait outside with your gear till room turnaround.
FACILITIES: End of room will be cleared to provide a setup area and dance floor, not very wide but adequate for a smallish rig. Plenty of height. Adjacent to a set of french doors which makes it difficult during nice weather with guests trying to use doors. - width available: 3-4m - height clearance: 3-4m
STAFF: Not very helpful and offer conflicting advice
POWER PROVISION: Plenty of 13A sockets in close proximity to setup area
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: "A very nice but very difficult venue to play, mainly due to terrible access. There isnt enough room available to provide an early setup so the only option is to setup during room turnaround. All guests are then directed into an adjoining room next to the entrance meaning you have to carry all your gear through the gardens and wait outside for access. Definitely a problem in bad weather.
