Wowed at Tylney Hall

Tylney Hall


My 24 hours in wedding venue heaven…

When I say I was wowed by Tylney Hall – trust me I am not joking. I was wowed. Totally and utterly. And the magic truly kicks off the moment you arrive, I mean the first visual of the venue front is literally breath taking, but for me, the private car parking space on arrival was quite a touch. That’s special and that’s detail people. Memorable moments make a wedding and Tylney Hall is riddled in them…

Welcome to Tylney

The Hall dates back to the 1700’s when it was built for the Tylney family and has quite a rich and varied history behind it. During the first world war, the venue acted as a hospital housing wounded soldiers and in 1948 became a school – until it closed in 1984 – when it was transformed into the divinely luxurious hotel it is today. The venue now boasts a whole host of deluxe facilities including: a gorgeous mix of individually designed suites, an Award winning dining room, a sensational spa with both indoor and outdoor pools, plus the most impressive grounds I have ever seen at a wedding venue.

The Wedding Fairy has landed…

It’s the little touches that take Tylney from great to spectacular. The staff were all so attentive and welcoming on arrival, you really felt there was a genuine passion to make you feel like you were somewhere special. And this superior level of service continued throughout the duration of our visit. The room itself was a real delight and very spacious, with a lovely lounge and dining space combined – quite a treat. Again, the beautiful bowl of fruit and delicious selection of truffles over coffee added perfectly to what was quite a welcome. Once settled in, I decided to pop on those boots that were made for walking to explore the grounds. We could have walked all afternoon to be honest. The lake is a particularly gorgeous spot to sit and relax, but after a couple of hours, I decided to head back to slip into a suit and get ready for pre-dinner cocktails… I am pretty excited at this point, but had no idea about what was to follow!

Quite clearly the only way to kick off such a spectacular evening is with a glorious glass of bubbles darling. We popped into the utterly divine Italian lounge, sank into a chaise longue – Barbara Cartland style – and soaked up the magic as it unfolded. Actually it was more Downton than Barbara. There is something quite wonderful about dressing for dinner and at Tylney Hall, all those indulgences are catered for and then some. In fact at times, it felt like I was starring in an Agatha Christie Miss Marple mystery and I loved every second of it. After taking an hour to relax and enjoy the surroundings, we were invited through to have dinner in the award winning Oak Room Restaurant and again, this was an experience I certainly won’t be forgetting in a hurry…

The Oak Room

Yes dining at Tylney is something everyone should have the opportunity to experience at least once in their lifetime. Candle-lit and utterly gorgeous, we were seated next to the grand piano and immediately felt at home as one show stopper of a tune was being played after another. I had to stop myself from belting out a number. Not so sure the other diners would have appreciated my vocals… once again, the drama really is in the detail here – and I am not talking about my singing skills! The service is second to none and presented with such style and grace – I loved the classic cloche presentation of our main courses! You gotta love a little bit of silver dome action at the table – oh and prob the best steak I have ever tasted in my life to boot. And don’t get me started on the soup – I need a tureen in my life like now! The highlight however, was my creme brûleé finale – best I have ever tasted. Period.

After dinner we resided to the library – as one does – and enjoyed a port night cap, before heading back to the boudoir so we could plan breakfast, which by the way. was served at exactly 8.45 am as requested. A perfect start to the day…


I guess this is what makes Tylney so unique. You get to live like a King for the day without all the formalities. The only annoying bit is having to leave!
