The Woodman Inn

Our beautiful 18th Century family-owned country inn, set in an idyllic location at the foothills of the South Pennines, is the ideal setting for a relaxed and romantic wedding.

We’re all about attention to detail and impeccable service here at the Woodman and our team, led by Events Director, Jordan Lee, is ready to turn your wedding dreams into a reality.

The styling, the delicious wedding breakfast, the stunning woodland setting, coupled with our directory of trusted and talented suppliers, are on hand to deliver your perfect day.

The Country Room

The small but perfectly formed ‘intimate’ wedding is a speciality for Jordan and the team. The Country Room above the Woodman Inn pub is just the right size for those more intimate affairs, perfectly accommodating numbers between 20 – 80.

The Garden Room

A wonderful wooden wedding space, complete with rattan lighting, lots of natural bamboo, hessian swags, olive trees, planting and herbs.  We have learned to love the outdoors over recent months and the Garden Room perfectly captures the mood.  It can comfortably cater for up to 100 guests, situated within its very own gardens, encapsulating the great, green outdoors.

With 19 beautifully refurbished and characterful rooms, your guests will have a wonderful stay at the Woodman Inn and wake to an amazing full English breakfast with a Woodman inn twist. The newlyweds get an overnight stay in the delightful Thunderbridge suite, with our complements.


The Woodman Inn is the perfect wedding venue, the indoor and outdoor space work so well. The food was first class and the service was impeccable. The wedding planners Jordan and Kieran were extremely helpful and ensured the day went to plan, they were thorough with the planning for the day but also gave you enough space to make sure our special day was exactly how we wanted it to be. We were absolutely delighted with everything. Thank you to the Woodman for making our wedding day perfect.Michelle

How do you even begin to try and describe how incredible Jordan, Kieran and the rest of the team are and how absolutely perfect the Woodman Inn is? We got married on 29/05/2021 after bringing it forward with only 3 months notice (a little crazy we know!) The minute we met Jordan last year and stepped into the Woodman Inn we knew that was exactly where we would get married, we had other viewings booked and we had agreed we would never say yes to the first one but that completely went out of the window and The Woodman Inn it was! Jordan from the minute we met him has been incredible, he took the time to get to know us, he laughed with us, gave us ideas and no question was ever too silly, even if I thought it was! Our wedding day was everything we could have ever dreamed of and so so much more. Jordan and Kireran made sure everything ran like a dream and we didn't need to have worried about a thing! The food was absolutely stunning too! Jordan you are the kindest and most amazing person and we are so so grateful for every bit of advice and every single little thing you did to help make our day as perfect as it was, after nearly 16 years we have finally done it and WOW was it worth the wait! We cannot wait to come back and see you all very soon!Abigail
