Cranford hosted our beautiful wedding on Saturday and we could not have had a more perfect day. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking with beautifully maintained grounds which made for picture perfect photographs. The efficiency and friendliness of the Cranford staff was outstanding and all of the guests gave huge compliments to the staff, constantly mentioning how they always went out...

We stayed at Cranford for two nights in a self catering cottage - The Dairy. The white roomy cottage was neatly decorated and had a fire place and kitchenette and free wifi. The staff prepared the room while we were away, so when we arrived after dark the lights were already on and everything in its place. The property was...

Stayed here for a wedding a few weeks back. The venue is absolutely beautiful and was managed very well but the rooms were a little disappointing. They were comfortable but there were a few small details missing that could really make them so much better, like having full-length mirrors in the rooms. It's a wedding venue so most guests staying...

A quick stop off to have a look around at Cranford Country Lodge. All very old world charm with lots of collectables over the years displayed in their cosy lounges. Sat next to a lovely warm fire as it was rather chilly and misty rain outside.

We spent a wonderful, restful Monday to Friday at Cranford Country Lodge. It is impossible not to de-stress in their well tended gardens, walking under ornamental cherry trees bursting with blossom. The buildings have a beautiful old world french style farm charm with their wooden doors painted in the perfect duck egg blue or elegant grey. We stayed in The...

Our wedding was truly magical at the Cranford Country Lodge on 13 August 2016. A destination weekend wedding in such a beautiful setting was well worth it.
