Your Day, Your Way!


We had a truly wonderful wedding weekend at Tanfield House, which was loved by all our guests and more than met our expectations. It is a beautifully relaxed setting, perfect for a small wedding such as ours (80 guests), and I would recommend it to anyone considering a similar sized event and looking for something a little different.
