We value your feedback at Hockering House
Perfect is the only word to describe our experience at Hockering House. From the first time we met Sam through the next 18 months she was fabulous to work with. Nothing is too much trouble, she is so professional and organised and just a really really lovely person. Her recommendations for suppliers like Constance Rose and Best@Bars were spot on, and on the day Sam barely stopped moving as she kept everything running smoothly.
Hockering House itself is stunning. The house, the formal gardens, our wedding spot in the woods, the meadows with the marquee....loads of our guests complimented us on finding such a lovely venue - in fact is was the first only one we looked at...after meeting Sam and seeing the space it was the easiest decision ever !
We glamped in the meadow that night with some friends and had a great time! Super comfy beds in luxurious bell tents with everything we needed to have a great time. It was ace to wake up the next morning and enjoy the afterglow of a wonderful day in a wonderful place.
Thankyou for everything Sam. You’re the best. Abbi & Niall xxx
Hockering House was a wonderful place for us to hold our wedding reception - we wanted to be outside and for our guests to be able to camp, so Hockering was perfect for our needs, but with the House and its beautiful view as a backdrop, and Sam's help and advice throughout the preparations and the day itself, it was everything we'd hoped for. We particularly appreciated the care Sam and her recommended suppliers took when pouring rain threatened to dampen everything, and they changed all their set-up plans to ensure that the marquee was pristine in spite of the weather. It ended as a beautiful sunny afternoon!
Hockering House......what a TRULY AMAZING place to get married!!! Me and my husband had our wedding there on 3rd June 2017 and what a day it was. From the start when we chose the venue to the day after our wedding was very relaxed. All the suppliers that Sam put us in touch with where very helpful and made our day most enjoyable.
Sam was so much help with everything, she is an amazing lady and her support through the whole celebration was excellent. (Thank you Sam). We have had so many of our guests say what a wonderful venue Hockering House is.
If you want a blank canvas to put your own stamp on then this is definitely the place.
To top it off we camped in the meadow next to the venue with our family, Sam gave us a bell tent to stay in as newly weds, it had a double bed and was decorated lovely.
Thank you again,
Lots of love

Why choose Hockering House? Apart from the beautiful and tranquil surroundings reminiscent of many an English postcard, the most important thing for us when choosing the venue was the freedom so choose our wedding, our way. With both ourselves and many of our friends bringing children, our main priority was to include them, thus ensuring all adults could eat, drink and celebrate in a state of relaxation.
Sam understood this and was not in the slightest bit fazed at the thought of 25-30 under 12s rampaging around Hockering's landscape, whilst filled with cake, doughnuts, sweets and ice-cream.
Despite the monsoon that hit at the start of the week, everything was set up perfectly ( definitely recommend booking Sam as co-ordinator-in-chief) and the wedding was all we had envisioned, with feedback being overwhelmingly positive about the whole event and the venue.
If you want a wedding in beautiful surroundings whilst having the freedom to bring your own ideas, quirks and personality to the event, choose Hockering House.

Where do we start with writing this review. Me and my husband had our wedding at Hockering House last Friday (7/7/17) and we can not thank Sam enough for all of her hard work and advice with our wedding. From start to finish it was an amazing day and all ran smoothly with help from Sam, Matt and his team at Best@Bars and Sharon and her team at SBR inspired that Sam highly recommended so we had no worries with our suppliers.
If you are looking for a beautiful venue with stunning gardens this is your venue. We went to have a look around and meet with Sam nearly 3 years ago and the minute we got to Hockering House we knew it was where we would get married. Sam will do anything for her couples and that really shows through the planning and also on the day. We could not have wished for a more perfect wedding day and we are so in love with our wedding photographs that we have seen so far.
Thank you Sam - truly amazing lady.
Lots of love from Mr & Mrs Snowling
