"We got married at The Coach House and it was the happiest day of our lives. The setting is absolutely stunning and the facilities are spot on, but alongside this - what made The Coach House such a wonderful venue - was the amazing staff. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend getting married at beautiful Marks Hall, a truly beautiful setting." Abbe & Tom
