I got married at St Fort in September. It was the perfect setting for a country wedding. Conrad was brilliant in making sure that all the pieces tied up perfectly on the day and everything happened the way we wanted. The service providers he suggested were all excellent. The guest house was the perfect place to stay for the weekend....

We rented the whole house on a self-catering basis for a large family get-together. The house is spacious with well-appointed rooms and suites. It is beautifully situated. We used the barn for communal dinners. The venue was ideal for this purpose.

I have been going to St Fort for the past 5 years with a group of friends. We always go in June! When you wake up in the morning, the frost on the ground looks like snow!
