Weddings

Packfords Hotel provides the perfect backdrop for your wedding. In the winter months guests are welcomed with a roaring fire and in warmer seasons our mature gardens are the perfect compliment to your reception.

We endeavour to make every event personal and unique. Our experienced, friendly and professional team will take care of the planning arrangements, giving personal detail to even the smallest detail and any special requirements. We aim to ensure the utmost flexibility in the services that we offer you and a personal visit is a must to get a true feeling for the hotel, at which time we will be delighted to meet and discuss your plans.

Civil Ceremonies

The Hotel was one of the first venues in the area to be licensed to hold Marriage Ceremonies and Civil Partnerships. The Hardy Room provides a stylish setting for up to 50 seated guests attending the ceremony.
