Would recommend Altahammond House for everything.
My son had his wedding at this beautiful venue just recently.
Heather and Tom with all their staff were fantastic. It was a brilliant day from start to finish.
Can’t thank them enough. From accommodating our early start to the needs of all the guests, quite simply 5 stars is not enough.

We recently had our wedding here and all I can say is wow, the venue is fantastic. Heather and Tom were a credit on the day and the run up to the big day. The food was second to none and no one went hungry at all. The size of the venue is phenomenal giving everybody the chance to sit inside or enjoy the sun outside. I cannot recommend this place enough and thank you for making our day so special.

I would have no issues with recommending this venue.
It was the most beautiful set up for a wedding I have ever seen.
From the very beginning just visiting the venue Heather & Tom were incredible.
Every last detail was thought about.
They were so attentive to not all our guests but even more the bridal party. making sure we had food and drink.
they really do go over the top and that extra 50miles. and it is so appreciated.
The venue,the food, the staff are second to none, whole atmosphere was unreal.
all our guests are still taking.
I only wish we had more opportunities to do the day all over again.
if you could get stars out of 10
we would be giving you 100.
I think my husband and I have gained two friends for life.
So from the bottom our hearts thank you so much Heather and Tom for everything you did for Cydne, Tiernans, Carrie and Andy.
Your both Awesome.
lots of love. xxx

As a wedding photographer, I have just shot my first wedding in this amazing venue. It was the worst weather of the year, raining and blowing a gale. I was blown away for a different reason though. So many photo opportunities and the warmest welcome from Heather and Tom and their staff. The food was out of this world too and the whole place was immaculate. Highly recommend and I really hope I will get to work here again in the future.
If I could give this venues more stars I would. Outstanding from the breakfast to the tractor hay ride we managed between the showers. The warmest of welcomes awaits you here. Your search for an amazing venue stops here!

Firstly I would like to say a massive big thank you to Heather and Tom and all of the staff who I cannot give enough praise to, you people are the stars. From the moment we entered the barn on our wedding day to the moment of leaving the next day was an experience we will never forget, you guys made our special day more special. There are no superlatives to describe this venue, because none even come close, the venue Heather & Tom and their wonderful staff make their excellent work look so effortless. I can’t recommend Altahammond highly enough, if anyone is looking for the most personal and perfect wedding venue, this is the place to go. Once again thank you Heather, Tom and staff, forever in our good memories. Anne & Andy
