On our recent Midlands Meander trip, we had an enjoyable one night stay in the Dairy cottage at Cranford Country Lodge. The hosts were friendly and helpful and the cottage very spacious, clean and well equipped. Beautiful spot in the country side.

When Taryn started looking for a wedding venue, she did not want the usual "wedding factory" and boy, did she hit gold... Cranford is magical and enchanting!! We were treated as family. The food was 5-star, the staff courteous and accommodating, and the special touch of gluten free cookies with a lovely note in our cottage was awesome. Alex, as our wedding planner, you were amazing! Thank you for your part in making Taryn and Karl's wedding so perfect and unforgettable.
Superb. 5 out of 5

Absolutely stunning venue - perfect for a couple who love the outdoors. We got married on 19 November 2016 and would love to do it all over again! Viv and her team were absolute gems.

Absolutely phenomenal venue. Food was excellent, the vibe was first class and the staff were so professional and helpful. Could not have asked for a better experience on our special day. I would readily recommend Cranford to anyone considering using their services without hesitation.

Over 3 years later and family and friends still talk about how awesome our wedding and venue was! We hold all wedding food up to your standard (although it almost never comes close). A place that has a very special place in our hearts!
