It was one of the best days of our lives together
Where do we start?! We cannot begin to thank you and all the staff at Deer Park for everything you did in the lead up to and during our big day! The food was exquisite, the accommodation was outstanding and all of the staff were so accommodating towards us and our guests. It was a truly wonderful day and one that we will look back on with fondness for many years to come.
All of our guests had a fabulous time at Deer Park and every single one of them was so complimentary of the grounds, the setting, the food and accommodation, you really exceeded our expectations and we are so grateful!
On a side note, we must say a very special thank you to Mark who coordinated our day with expert precision! We were blown away by his selflessness and willingness to drop anything he was doing to assist with our day. He gave some fabulous speech introductions and really added something special to our day at Deer Park. Thank you Mark, you really did a fantastic job!
Thank you all so much. We both agreed that it was one of the best days of our lives together and it was in large part, thanks to all of the staff at Deer Park.
We will be sure to pop down to Deer Park again in the near future!

Thank you so much!
Hi Sophie Thank you so much for your help with it all. Your staff were amazing and our day went better than we could have ever dreamed of! Everybody enjoyed themselves and we will be recommending you guys to everyone.
The day flowed perfectly and effortlessly...
Dear Sophie and Deer Park Staff, Thank you so much for all you did last Friday to ensure our special day was just that. The day was perfect - even the weather behaved!! and you and your staff ensured we had a stress free day. The day flowed perfectly and effortlessly, but I know you all worked very hard to make it all happen. The Deer Park will be a special place for Howard and I and we will come and visit often. Once again Many Thanks.
Dear Sophie Today is our first week back at work after the best 3 weeks of our lives. It seems like an age ago since our wedding, but you and all the team at Deer Park were outstanding. The many planning meetings we had where relaxed and enjoyable, you coached us through the whole process with great skill and patience. Your inspiration and ideas were second to none. We relied on you totally for the local contacts for the cake, flowers & chair covers and we were not let down. Their service was great and the end product was spectacular. The few days of our wedding at Deer Park were magical and we will always have great memories of the occasion. All our expectations were surpassed!! Everything was perfect, the venue, the accommodation, the food and most of all the team. We cannot thank you enough for our wedding, and we look forward to many visits to Deer Park in the future.
We absolutely loved it!
Our Wedding was amazing, thanks to you and all at Deer Park. The staff on duty were fabulous. There were comments from many guests as to how attentive the staff were. It was perfect and we absolutely loved it and are so grateful for all of the hard work that went into it being so. The guests had such a great time and could not believe how gorgeous the venue was and how they'd not known of it before! We are very much looking forward to coming back to Deer Park when we return from our amazing honeymoon. Only wish we could have our wedding with you again! Thank you Sophie. We will always be grateful to you and Deer Park for making our wedding a perfect day to remember, for the rest of our lives.
A great day had by all!
Thanks so much for your email and thank you and the team for making it such a perfect day! We had an absolute blast. We will recommend you highly to all our family and friends. A great day had by all! Thanks so much
It really was the most amazing day, one that we will remember forever.....and it far surpassed our expectations too, so a massive hug to all for that! Everyone helped to make it really beautiful, even despite the rain 😉 We were hoping to book for our anniversary already as we love Deer Park.....but realised we can't as you will need the Saturday for a wedding (maybe), so we will get in touch nearer the time maybe :)) with our fingers crossed :)) Speak soon and a massive thanks to you and all the staff that contributed to our truly amazing day xxx
The wedding of our dreams!
Just got back from mini moon and wanted to write to you all. What we really want to say it that words can't express how AMAZING everything was for us on our wedding day. The hotel looked amazing, the decor beautiful, the grounds stunning, the staff so friendly and approachable. We can't thank you all enough for the amazing organisation, the superb tea which kept on coming and coming (and yummy pizzas) and the incredible staff which really made the day. They were so attentive and were there without being obtrusive in anyway. Sophie we just had it all. The wedding of our dreams. The guests all thought so highly of it all to. We love the Deer Park and hopefully hubby!!! Might treat us to another stay one day. Thank you thank you thank you for EVERYTHING!!!!
A wonderful day!
Thank you so much! We had such a wonderful day and everything was run like clockwork. We had such wonderful comments on the venue and everyone loved the food (actually a couple of guests even commented on how it is the best food they have had!). A massive thank you to everyone for all your help. Can't wait to come back and visit! Best wishes, and thank you once again.
Thank you, we had an amazing day and everything went well. The food was absolutely fantastic, whoever invented the desert pizza needs a prize and a trophy!!! We have had great feedback from all our guests, one of which is my cousin who is looking at getting married next year and was extremely impressed with Deer Park, I believe she will be in touch. Thanks for all your help.
We just wanted to say a massive thank you for your outstanding support in organising our wedding; we really couldn’t have asked for anymore; you are so organised, have great attention detail and particularly as we were organising this across the pond we really appreciated your support and had 100% trust in you. You are a real asset to the Deer Park and the rest of the team couldn’t have done enough to support us – you are a fantastic venue and really deserve to do well. Please pass this onto Mark (the MD); thank you so much again and I am sure my family and friends will keep you in mind for any upcoming events they may have.
Just thought I would drop a quick email to yourselves to thank you so much for making their wedding the best ever, please can you send Sophie the warmest regards for coordinating an amazing day for all concerned. It was the most fantastic day and evening which I have ever been involved with. The Hotel and the grounds are truly spectacular and the tree house just amazing for them to spend their first married night together. The meal, the service and general attitude of all your staff, who were excellent, just made this a wedding to remember.
A truly wonderful wedding day!
We cannot thank you enough, and everyone at Deer Park, for a truly wonderful wedding day. From start to finish the day ran smoothly and we felt so welcomed and relaxed. It was perfect! All our guests adored Deer Park and said how lovely it was. We are so happy we chose Deer Park as our wedding venue, we look forward to returning for our 1 year anniversary.
Hello Deer Park Team! We just wanted to say what an AMAZING day we had on Sunday. We could not have had a more perfect day, absolutely loved every single second. The venue was just beautiful and to top it off warm and sunny! We were so so lucky! Everyone said what a wonderful day they had and many commented it was the best wedding they had ever been to. What made it so successful were the staff. We were so impressed with every single member. Our manager was absolutely FANTASTIC! He could not have made the day run any smoother so a very special thanks to him. Everyone could not have been more helpful, nothing was too much trouble. All in all an incredibly professional and friendly team. And of course we could not have done it without you Sophie! A special thanks to you for arranging our special day. We will never forget our day at the Deer Park. Thanks again to everyone at the Deer Park! We will be back to relive our memories! Can't wait!
Exceeded all expectations...
I would just like to say thank you so much to you and the rest of the team at Deer Park for what was literally the perfect day! I can’t thank you and the team enough for all of your hard work and effort to make our day so special. All of our guests complimented the venue and the staff. Nothing was too much trouble, and the execution of the day was more than I could imagine. The food was out of this world, and the organisation to help make everything run smoothly and make the day stress free. All of the staff were ever so helpful and professional, and when we had slight hiccups they dealt with it in a calm manner with no trouble at all. So many of our guests have been telling us it has been the best wedding they have been to. This was truly the best day of our lives and we couldn’t have had our perfect day without you and your team. I wouldn’t have changed this for the world; we didn’t want the day to end! Deer Park has by far exceeded all expectations, I will certainly recommend you to all of my friends and family. The tree house was absolutely stunning and perfect views to sit and relax in the morning. My Cousin who has a young child said Deer Park were so accommodating to her and baby Henry, and coming from London she said she felt all of their efforts to meet their needs were met and went above and beyond to accommodate them. Deer Park truly made us feel at ease. It was truly the perfect setting. Thank you for everything you have done to help with the organisation and really making this a special day for us. Thank you so much.
Tailored to our exact wishes...
I wanted to write to say thank you so very much for all your efforts in making our wedding day as perfect as could be. Your welcome, organisation and dedication are to be commended and you made us feel at home from the very start. Our wedding day was tailored to our exact wishes and the fact that you all worked so hard to ensure our ceremony was outside despite the hour of rain beforehand, really did amaze Matt and I. We were both astonished that you pressed ahead with our hopes for an outdoor ceremony and had faith in the weather clearing. Your enthusiasm, drive and commitment are extraordinary and I know that most venues would not have gone to such lengths. The venue itself was perfect for us. The staff were incredible – and were accommodating for every need and request. Your master of ceremonies is a fantastic chap who no doubt has a very bright future ahead – I was amazed when I went to use the projector and he miraculously appeared from nowhere, all ready to get it up and running. Your team are all like fantastically magical in that they simply make things happen. Mark should be enormously proud of you all as a remarkable team at his remarkable venue. I cannot speak highly enough about the wedding you allowed and enabled us to create. I know all of our guests felt the same. I would be proud for you to use this as a testimonial and I will go onto Trip Advisor to ensure the word is spread far and wide, as it very much should be. Lastly, the treehouse. What a fabulous asset to the venue. Matt and I have stayed in many lovely places around the world, and I can safely say your treehouse was my favourite. I wish it had been for longer…ie permanently!! The only one small thing I would suggest for the future is to have a full length mirror there in the treehouse ready to go – I got my mum to bring mine and I am sure there would have been one appear should I have asked anyway!! Thank you for every second of a wonderful day. We will remember it forever and it could not have been any more perfect. Many, many thanks x
On behalf of myself and Cath, we wanted, once again, to thank you so very much for all you did to ensure that our wedding day was the most amazing day. You have helped create memories that will last a lifetime and you left no stone unturned in your preparation and work that you put in on our behalf to ensure that the day ran as smoothly as it did. Could you please pass on our thanks to all of the staff at the Deer Park as well, as it is a fabulous team that you are part of, and everyone made us feel truly welcome.
Everything we dreamed of and more...
We can't thank you enough for the most amazing wedding day. It was absolutely faultless. You have definitely exceeded any expectations we had!! It was everything we dreamed of and more. The service was incredible, the food was perfection...the whole place was just amazing. We will definitely be back in the future and will surely be highly recommending you to everyone. All the thanks in the world.
It was our home...
“ What sets the Deer Park Hotel apart from any other wedding venue we saw was the unpretentious atmosphere. From the time we were there the Deer Park was our home..."
We are so looking forward to next July and to enable our family and friends to experience the same. We are so happy for choosing Deer Park as our wedding venue and I'm sure that you guys will again, exceed our expectations. Once again, thank you very much. You guys are awesome!
Easy and Memorable...
I think Kev may have sent you an email this morning, but just to say that we cannot thank you and all of the team for everything you did, both on the lead up and the day itself. Everyone has given amazing feedback about so many aspect of Deer Park! You made the whole experience so easy and enjoyable, it was such an amazing day. We’re already planning a trip back. We will definitely be recommending Deer Park to anyone who asks! Thank you again.
To all the staff at the Deer Park who made our daughters wedding such a magical and memorable time. Everything about the hotel was perfect and to have such amenable staff added to the occasion greatly. Obviously can’t wait to come again!
An amazing day...
Thank you for the message and my apologies for the delayed reply. Me and Kate had a truly amazing day and are very grateful for all yours and your colleagues efforts. It was the best day of our lives and our guests were so impressed by both the venue and the staff on the day. We are both looking forward to staying at Deer Park again in the future and will be leaving a positive review onTrip Advisor in due course.
An outstanding day...
"I would like to thank you for a outstanding day we all had last Saturday, everybody thought that the conservatory and the food was 10/10 plus the sun shone for us. I would like to thank all the staff who were there for making the event a memorable one not forgetting the bottle of wine which was given to me."
What can I say...
"Well what can I say, thank you so very much for arranging such a great event in support of our East Devon Appeal – it was a fantastic evening and the feedback I have had has been brilliant, a lot of people saying we should go bigger! Mark, please pass on my sincere thanks to your team. They gave first class service to our supporters and the food was beautiful, a real talking point. The comments I heard about the food and the venue were brilliant, Hospiscare is very lucky to have the support of the Deer Park."
Thank you again...
"Thank you again for getting back to me so promptly. We can't thank you enough for your continued assistance and genuine enthusiasm with our plans and I would like it to be known that Deer Park are very lucky to have someone so professional handling important matters with such care and consideration."
"Well done to all the staff at Deer Park, a much deserved award for your hard work and dedication. I spend a fair bit of time there with O.A.C. and was fortunate enough to be on the receiving end of your professional excellence a few nights ago ( Christmas dinner party)...absolutely top notch in every aspect, must do it more often..thank you all."
"This hotel was one of the highlights of our holiday. The staff were incredibly helpful and charming and there were always activities to be involved in if you wished. We did shooting, walking and croquet! When we rocked up there was a falcon display and the staff took care of our bags and check in whilst we enjoyed it! We had our 7 month old son with us and the staff couldn’t be more accommodating and understanding with him. I know he enjoyed his trip, snoozes by the fire pats for the dogs and smiles with a particular staff member! Really recommend this hotel for anyone either with or without a family it caters for everything and the atmosphere is beautiful. I wish I was back there having a drink by the fire or enjoying one of their amazing dinners!!"
“Arrive at Deer Park...Wow!! Wow! Wow! Many many congratulations. Fantastic.”
