"On behalf of David and myself, I would like to thank you very much for all your help with our wedding at Clonter. We had a fantastic time and the day went even better than we had hoped. The venue was practical and looked beautiful... Thank you also for arranging to look after our French family guests- they have all commented on how much they enjoyed their stay at Broomfield Barns. We look forward to meeting you again soon."

"Our sincere thanks for the most enormous contribution you made to the wedding.You produced the most sumptuous meal which was so greatly enjoyed by all. The quality of the food was just wonderful,the presentation so inviting,the vegetables cooked to perfection and the venison "melted" in the mouth. The vegetarians loved their tart and everyone wished they could try both deserts. Your staff were delightful and coped with great good humour. Thank you very much indeed for your proffesionalism and friendliness , we did appreciate that greatly. Best wishes and kindest regards."
