Stanwell House is a romantic Georgian grade II listed building oozing rustic style and charm, situated on the edge of the New Forest in Hampshire. At Stanwell House, we offer an intimate and romantic setting for your wedding supported by an experienced team of friendly and professional staff.
Stanwell House Hotel is a stylish and cosmopolitan boutique where a friendly warm welcome waits from the moment you arrive. We can cater for any number of guests from small and intimate wedding breakfasts seated for up to 80, while a pretty marquee can be added to our already lovely Bistro with 150 guests in the evening.
We are licensed for Civil Marriages, and your ceremony can take place in our Conservatory, a bright, elegant room with stone flags, stylish rattan chairs and banquettes smothered in cushions, or our new garden pavilion in our delightful gardens.
Overlooking the garden, the adjoining restaurant area is perfect for the wedding breakfast with wooden floors and huge wrought iron mirrors which look spectacular by candlelight. We can also offer the whole hotel for exclusive use for your wedding party.
At Stanwell House you will find we are very proud to be passionate about food, delivered by our award winning team offering attentive and unobtrusive service.
Once agreed and signed up, everything was very smooth in the preparation - lots of communication and someone was always around to promptly answer emails or the phone. When we needed to move our wedding date they were incredibly accommodating and left us with no doubts that we had chosen the right venue for us.
On the day itself they completely surpassed themselves. The sun shone so we had the ceremony outside, a fabulous location.
A special mention to Thierry, Annette, Anna and Pedro - they worked tirelessly before and during our day. There are countless others whose names I sadly don\'t know but a clear team effort and nothing was left to chance. Exactly what you want which meant me and my wife could relax and enjoy our ceremony and the company of our guests.
As a venue it offers something different in the lovely town of Lymington - a lot of the other New Forest venues seemed a little bit like \'wedding factories\' whereas the personal touch was evident throughout at Stanwell. The value for money was fantastic and meant we could have the elegant and stylish day that we wanted without breaking the bank.
Overall it\'s an absolute gem of a place, great atmosphere, staff, rooms, food and location. What more do you need?
As regards our experience on the day, it genuinely could not have been more perfect day. The whole team were so attentive and accommodating, from the kitchen guys assembling our cake to you fixing on the button holes after the ceremony. I would never have guessed that it was Christopher's first turn at being in charge, he made it look effortless and really took the strain away from us. We were able to relax and enjoy every part of our day, which was so important.
All our things were moved from the preparation room to the wedding suite without us having to ask, which was great. The staff welcomed all our guests and helped everyone to feel relaxed. The hotel had so many perfect places for photographs and it was so much fun exploring them all, both before the day and after the ceremony.
We also received so many compliments on the wedding breakfast - a friend of mine told me that it was the best food she has ever had at a wedding! One extremely pregnant guest asked for her steak to be cooked a little more and rather than just doing that, the kitchen team cooked her an entirely fresh meal. Things like that really made us feel that everything mattered to you as much as to us.
I would also like to thanks Annette for patiently dealing with all my emails in the lead up, even as they got a little more fraught towards the end!
I think I'm going on a little bit too long now, but I really cannot stress just how special you made our day. I want to do it again!
Thank you all so much
My conversations, numerous emails and minor panics to Annette leading up to the big day were always dealt with quickly, professionally and left me knowing that our Wedding would be exactly as we had planned.
Lucy (who has been a star from our first stay at Stanwell House 2 years ago, just after Gareth had finished Chemo) was brilliant from the moment we all arrived on the Saturday. Thank you Lucy!
And finally to Anita who we feel on the day went over and above her role. She was absolutely amazing! From sorting out the Cheese wedding cake, helping with decorations, to helping our best man with his Laptop for his speech, nothing was too much trouble. Anita excels in all she does, she was brilliant. Thank you Anita from myself and Gareth, you helped make our day run so smoothly and make it very special. Good luck for your Wedding next year, we wish you the best of luck.
We will be coming down to see you all soon, I need to collect my cheese board at some point!
Thank you again.
Samantha & Gareth White
