My husband and I got married at Washingborough hall on the 20th may this year. Everything about this venue was perfect. The staff were outstanding, friendly and so helpful, not only on our wedding day but from the fisrt day we went for Sunday lunch which is when we fell in love with the place. We can't thank them enough for everything they did for us. From day one Amy, our director of romance, was exceptional and an absolute pleasure to work with, making sure everything little detail of our wedding went to plan.

I was married at Washingborough Hall on 1st June. I have been working with Amy the Director of Romance for 18 months leading up to our big day. Amy is wonderful and exceptional in her role I thoroughly enjoyed our meetings and she kept me calm on the day, nothing was too much trouble. I am so pleased we chose Washingborough Hall. The service provided was faultless and the professionalism of the staff team ensured our day was everything we had hoped it would be and then some. The food is incredible and tastes as good as it looks. The rooms are comfortable and very elegant the bridal suite was beautiful. I can't find fault with anything and all credit ... Read more

It’s exactly six months since we got married at the wonderful Washingborough Hall Hotel and we couldn’t have had a more perfect day. Our first visit was on a wedding open evening where we got to have a look around and totally fell in love with it. We knew straight away that it was where we wanted to get married and cancelled our viewings of other venues. From the initial meeting we had with Lucy all the way up to after the wedding, the staff were exceptional. We must especially mention Amy, the ‘Director of Romance’ at the hotel, who was our main contact throughout and whom we had several meetings with to discuss our wedding. Every email was replied ...

Flawless! Everything was just perfect on the day. We had Amy who helped towards the planning of our wedding, who from day one was amazing. We were able to email with any questions or information as well as the meetings we had organised and food tasting. Every time we went to visit Washingborough we always had a warm and friendly greeting from all. The day ran extremely smoothly and everyone at the wedding commented on how fantastic the food was! We definitely made the right choice for our venue and will return in the future!
by Dawn Wilson on Tue, 6th September, 2016
From start to finish I can't thank Amy Thorne and the staff at Washingborough Hall enough for giving me and Nick a fantastic day. Our day went very smoothly and the food and wine were of an exceptional standard. I would recommend Washingborough Hall for any wedding venue. Professional personal service. Thank you very much
by Steve Drewery on Mon, 5th September, 2016
When we first viewed the venue we knew straight away and didn't even look anywhere else. The staff,food,rooms,venue grounds are all perfect and I felt that we were getting great value for our money. Our wedding day was organised perfectly and nothing was too much trouble for Lucy and the team, we were made to feel special. We had a little rain but rooms were available to give us extra space for our photographs. All of our guests have commented on how excellent everything was and I can't wait to see pictures of our big day. I loved every minute and am now a happily married man to my beautiful wife Victoria. Thank you very much Washingborough Hall.
by Debra Seed on Wed, 27th July, 2016
We had a most wonderful wedding day at WHH in May 2016. As I tell everyone, their customer care is second to none, Lucy and all her staff work so hard to ensure that everything is perfect and it certainly was, it made us feel very special. The hotel itself is beautiful and elegant but with a homely, cosy atmosphere, and it sits in a lovely spacious garden, right next door to Washngborough Church. One of the many delightful things about choosing WHH as our wedding venue, was the fact that we had the hotel exclusively for 24 hours, which made the occasion very personal and private.
by Katherine Hempenstall on Wed, 27th July, 2016
We got married at Washingborugh Hall on the 23rd April this year and had the most amazing day! The venue itself is stunning, exclusive and very beautiful. We got married in the church next door which is connected by an old gate and small pathway so we were able to walk with our guests to the venue. We only had 8 months to plan our wedding and we only saw one venue - Washingborough Hall - and new instantly that it was for us. It is rare to find a venue that is exclusively for your wedding party which was ideal for us. Amy (Director of Romance) was incredible from start to finish - nothing was ever to much trouble ...

Recently celebrated our wedding at Washingborough Hall. From booking our wedding to making sure the day ran smoothly, Lucy the owner was helpful, friendly, supportive and professional. The venue is beautiful, and the food delicious. All the staff made us feel special and the service was excellent. We highly recommend.
by Sharon Poole, now Hutchins on Thu, 7th July, 2016
We could not have picked a more perfect location for our special day. Washingborough Hall Hotel is beyond doubt the most romantic, personal and intimate venue for any wedding. Lucy, Ed and their staff are most attentive. Nothing is a problem. The location is picturesque, the hall is like a home from home with personal touches and attention to detail, the food is exquisite, the staff are so accomodating, everything happens without you noticing..... From starting your wedding planning to the special day everything is made so personal and seamless. Our day could not have gone any better and we would, without hesitation, recommend Washingborough Hall Hotle as the perfect, romantic location for a wedding. A day we will never ... Read more

We had our wedding at washingborough hall on June 18th, the venue was perfect and the staff were delightful. The food was out of this world and every single one of our guest commented on how lovely the food was. The staff had gone above and beyond to make sure we were happy, the wedding planner Amy was just amazing! She was with me and my husband every step of the way throughout the run up to the wedding and on the day. The only fault that I did have was that I was unable to hear the first couple of sentences from my dads speech as the music was still on in the background but again this was down ... Read more

We have just had our wedding at Washingborough Hall and what a fantastic day it was!! Back in 2014 we had visited one venue which wasn't for us and I just happened to go on the Internet in the car and found Washingborough Hall, we went straight there and have never looked back. We were greeted (don't forget we had no appointment) by the brilliant Owner Lucy Herring who gladly showed us around and I fell in love with the hall that day. The new extension was in the planning at that time but even looking at the plans I new that was where I wanted my wedding reception to be. After we had booked the date Lucy introduced us ...

I absolutely cannot fault Washingborough Hall Hotel. We had the most wonderful day and we could not have asked for more from Lucy and her team. From the moment we walked through the door on our first visit, every word and request we made was listened to and efficiently turned into reality. Lucy and her wonderful team truly do create the wedding that you want it to be and I am so grateful for their professionalism and care that went into the best day! Dan, Head Chef, creates the most delicious food that was commented on by so many of our guests and the surroundings are beautiful. I will always whole heartedly recommend Washingborough Hall.

I had my wedding at washy hall on Saturday 27th February 2016. We hired the venue exclusively for our wedding party which until we viewed this venue I didn't even know you could do! As part of our wedding we were given Amy Thorne director of romance who is the most amazing wedding planner I have ever encountered. She becomes a friend and is always answering emails whatever time you contact her. She really helped put me at ease and no request was a hassle for any and she helped make our wedding dreams a reality. Now to talk about the venue itself. What a truly breath taking venue washingborough hall is, but the staff make the venue. All the ... Read more

Throughout the planning of our wedding, Amy Thorne (Director of Romance) was so thoughtful and kind and it really felt like nothing was too much trouble for her. She was always on hand either by email or phone and so helpful throughout which really made us both feel so calm and relaxed when planning our wedding The evening before the wedding was so relaxed and Amy and the rest of the staff at Washingborough Hall made our whole family feel completely relaxed and made us feel at home. One of the main reasons we picked Washingborough Hall was because of its homely atmosphere and being run by a husband and wife (Edward and Lucy) and their three lovely girls really ... Read more

Gary and I were married at Washingborough Hall on 5th December 2015 and we had a wonderful day. We planned our wedding day in less than 12 months and so were very lucky to have the lovely Amy available to help us with the details. She was always on hand with a smile and reassurance to guide us through the process, and we were delighted to end up with the "twinkly" December wedding we'd wanted. Nothing was too much trouble in the planning and, on the day, everything went incredibly smoothly with her quiet but efficient guidance in the background. We only have good things to say about the rest of the staff too - particularly Rob and Dan. We ... Read more

Words cant really express how wonderful it is to be a "Washingborough Hall Bride" From the first time myself & my now Husband visited to view the Hall until the day we checked out after the wedding we were made to feel so unbelievably welcome & special by everyone. The Hall itself is grand & breathtaking though still manages to feel homely & the decor is absolutely stunning, the perfect backdrop for a wedding. Our wedding was on the 12th December & the Chrisitmas Decorations by Robert Stubbs & the team really are amazing, from the fabulous tree & real fire to the twinkly lights outside, it really was a magical winter venue. Throughout the planning Lucy was so kind ... Read more

What you hope to be your perfect day,Washingborough Hall delivers.The location only a few miles from Lincoln,makes it ideal. Once you enter the grounds it feels like your own little world with beautiful gardens and the stone Hall.Inside doesn't disappoint ,the staff are all friendly and couldn't do enough for us.The wedding menu has been well thought out ,the food to die for!!!! Don't miss out on what we think is Lincolnshire's premier wedding venue
by Steve Pembroke on Mon, 19th October, 2015
Washingborough Hall is really special. We looked at loads of venues but nowhere had such a warm, welcoming and homely feel. Aesthetically, it's a beautiful building that will look perfect in your photos. But it's so much more. The people who work there are focused entirely on making sure you have the perfect day - they think of everything and do everything before it even enters your mind! The seasonal and locally-sourced food is amazing. Many of our guests said it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. The accommodation is luxury-standard. The service is top-notch (we've had worse at world-renowned, five-star hotels). And the fact that you can have exclusive use for you and your guests ... Read more

We had our wedding here in October and the whole day was fantastic. We knew from when we first visited Washingborough Hall that it was ideal for us, it is a very lovely building and the interior is homely and welcoming. We had our evening party in the new orangery and it was fantastic with a great atmosphere. All of the staff were attentive and pleasant and the food is amazing! We dealt with Amy when organising our wedding and she was great to work with - very friendly and professional. We would highly recommend Washingborough Hall for your special day as ours was truly perfect.
by Natasha Speirs on Sat, 10th October, 2015
At first glance it's hard to distinguish what makes Washingborough so wonderfully perfect... But having been lucky enough to hold our fairytale wedding there (and they did make it a fairytale) we have come to realise...it isn't the beautiful Old Hall or the magnificent new Winston Wedding Room, it isn't the the perfectly manicured lawns with their own Dove Cote, it isn't even the spectacular food (although the food is to die for) it's more than that... It's the love, care and dedication of the wonderful Washingborough Team. Lucy, Amy, Rob and the team made sure every detail of our dream day became a reality. We were made to feel part of Washingborough from the very first moment we arrived. ... Read more

The main thing that stands out is the staff nothing is too much trouble they are all so approachable and go above and beyond to make you feel welcomed and a valued customer .

She kept in contact with me almost daily ensuring i felt confident that the wedding was going to be perfect. And it was! Nothing seemed to be too much trouble which made the whole process so easy! The food was absolutely delicious, especially the cheese soufflé :) The choice of menu options were all fantastic and although we opted for the cheapest food and drink packages it didn't matter as it was all amazing! On the wedding day itself i was not stressed as everything began to come together like clockwork. The ... Read more

Washingborough Hall was the venue for us when we stepped into it for the first time; it's timeless feel yet perfect finish on the décor plus lovely outdoor space won us over immediately. It is hard to say how it improved from there but it did as we were immediately welcomed and then made to feel like family through the whole year we planned our wedding. Staff remembered our names whenever we visited and the help of Amy in planning all the details we hadn't even thought of was fantastic. Rob was also on hand to help with any questions we had and nothing was too much trouble. Our dietary requirements were no bother for head chef Dan and he ... Read more

We were married on the 16th September 2015 in a civil ceremony at Washingborough Hall Hotel, the day was amazing and perfect from start to finish, the venue Lucy and the staff were attentive, professional and welcoming to us and all our guests. If my husband and I had imagined a perfect day, then this was delivered by Washingborough Hall Hotel. One further point, the food and service was absolutely fantastic, from the wedding reception to the breakfast the following morning. We couldn't recommend the venue enough.
by Amy Smith on Fri, 4th September, 2015
One word to describe our wedding day at Washingborough Hall would be perfect. This has been echoed by our friends and family who celebrated our day with us. Before the wedding Lucy was on hand from the moment we booked to answer any questions and help organise the day, we certainly felt in very safe hands! On the day from the moment we arrived at Washingborough Hall nothing was too much trouble for the amazing staff; from various dietary requirements to resolving a guest's wardrobe malfunction! Lucy and the team ensured that every moment of our day ran smoothly from start to finish. A fantastic venue we were lucky enough to enjoy drinks on the lawn before our wedding breakfast ... Read more

From looking at Washingborough Hall and comparing it to other venues nearby we knew we had to have our wedding there. It was so beautiful and with the extension it now meant it was large enough for us to have the numbers we required. We had exclusivity for our wedding which we loved that it would just be our friends and family there. We can't thank Amy the 'director of romance' enough it did not matter how many questions we asked or how silly they were she would always get back to us promptly. Compared to other friends getting married they would be waiting several days for a response, Amy got back to us within hours. I am gluten free ... Read more

All staff were extremely helpful and professional, the food was exemplary (as mentioned to us by many of the guests on the day) and the accommodation perfect. We were lucky to be the first couple in the new bridal suite, which is beautiful. We would recommend this venue to any future bride and groom.

by Jenna on Fri, 28th November, 2014
Excellent from day 1 to the big day. Lucy, the owner is supportive, lovely and very very organised. The venue is stunning and very special, the added bonus of being able to have the whole place to yourself is fantastic for a weekend wedding. We got married in the hotel, but if you're after a church wedding, the local parish church of Washingborough is literally a 3 minute walk away. Returning to our own day, the Sibthorpe Room, where we got married was lovely for a small wedding and the walk wasn't too long! The food was exemplary and massive thanks are owed to Dan the chef who diligently ensured that all dietary requirements were met...and there were a few! ... Read more

The day passed flawlessly and each person and the team were happy and helpful. The upgrades they have made to the place are stunning, it's a world away from how it looked when I worked there many years ago as a part time waitress. I would absolutely recommend this hotel for a wedding, a weekend away or even only a meal in their lovely restaurant with delicious food from their menu. The chef Dan is a lovely man and superb chef, creating mouth watering menus and dishes to enjoy. ... Read more

Lucy's help and advice was invaluable which made the day run smoothly without any problems, in fact for us the day was effortless. The food was outstanding, they were even able to accommodate our celiac guest with the same menu choices as everyone else (which was a first for her attending a wedding).

We recently held our wedding reception here, and can't recommend the venue highly enough. We grew up in the village, but have since moved away, and were excited to ‘come home’ for the wedding – we looked at many venues but none matched the cosy charm and friendliness of Washingborough Hall. The bar area and snug provided the perfect place for relaxing and catching up in-between the dancing, and the grounds a beautiful back drop for our photos. From the moment we arrived to set up to the moment we left the staff were charming and friendly and made all of our guests feel extremely welcome. Before we booked we had heard very good things about the food, and it ... Read more

Washingborough Hall is a stunning and amazing place for your one special day. The staff are outstanding and Lucy makes you feel so welcome and part of the 'washingborough hall' family. As a bride you need somone at the venue to give you the confidence you need that everything will be ok on the day and Lucy gave me that. Lucy was jusy brilliant and nothing was too much. The food is outstanding. Every guest mentioned how the food was just perfect, and it was. Since we got married in 2012 we have gone back to visit for dinner as we know it will be amazing.

Washingborough Hall is unlike most wedding venues in that Lucy and her team really do go that extra mile to make sure everything is perfect, are on hand for any last minute stresses and their attention to detail is absolutely incredible. Nothing is ever too much trouble and I can’t recommend them enough. Perfect venue, perfect location and outstanding staff and food.

Quite simply an absolutely perfect day! The surroundings are beautiful, and the staff were simply wonderful from first enquiring about booking right through to now when we revisit. Perfect really does sum it up!

My husband and I had the pleasure of being the first New Years Eve wedding at Washingborough Hall. We had a wonderful experience from the start of planning the wedding to the end of the wedding day! Lucy and her friendly experienced team saw our every wish honoured and made our day run smoothly. We appreciated that every effort was made to make our day very special. Our guests still comment on the quality of the food and how relaxed Lucy and her team made us all feel. We feel Washingborough Hall has the balance of being a beautiful place with friendly accommodating staff with the quality of amazing food. We would not hesitate to recommend to others who were ...

They say that your wedding should be one of the happiest days of your life. Well ours certainly was. From the first moment we stepped through the door of Washingborough Hall we knew it was where we wanted to spend our wedding day. Both Lucy and Edward have a friendly open approach and they made us feel that nothing we wanted was too much trouble. Lucy understood that we both had busy jobs and generally would like to minimise our trips to discuss plans, and was happy to email and telephone. We felt confident that all our requirements would be delivered with quality and style and we were not disappointed.Lucy guided us through menu choices and a great selection of ... Read more

The fabulous lucy and her wonderful team at washingborough hall made every aspect of our wedding simply perfect. Nothing was too much trouble for them and every thought or idea I had was embraced by lucy and made possible. She was a friendly, thoughtful point of contact throughout every moment of preperation and, together with her team, made the whole process of planning, relaxed and enjoyable. Lucy made herself available for discussion anytime I might need her, no matter how tiny the notion or idea, she always gave me her time and advice. Our wedding reception went beautifully and without a hitch and Lucy's friendly face and calming influence was a great comfort to me and both her and the ... Read more

March 9 th 2013. Our wedding day,from the very moment we visited the hotel we felt so relaxed.Lucy was so helpful and accommodating really helping us to make our wedding unique and special for us. The Hotel itself has been beautifully refurbished, a real boutique countryside retreat, Lucy and Ed and their staff really care about the place and the service it gives answering every e mail from an anxious Bride to be with a 'can do' approach. Lucy advised and liaised with all the outside services we used for our wedding in a prompt and professional manner.....nothing was too much trouble.

We got married at Washingborough Hall 25th October 2014. We had an absolutely amazing day and everything was perfect. They were so accommodating, catering for everyone in our party - taking into account everyone's needs. Any questions we asked they responded promptly. On the day, they ensured the bridal suite was ready for the bride and bridesmaids to get ready in. The service went without a hitch, everything was to perfection and organised so well. The food was amazing and enjoyed by all, we only had a small wedding but they set the room out perfectly, we couldn't of asked for anything more. The staff there could not do enough for us, they were polite, cheerful, professional and efficient! Despite ... Read more

We would not have chosen anywhere else! They were our first words to Lucy Herring, the venue is just perfect, the beautiful building and grounds, the attention to detail from Lucy and her staff is outstanding and makes the whole occasion run so smoothly, everything felt so personally taylored for us. The Chef Dan Wallis is amazing his food delicious, we are so pleased we were married there and the rest of the day and evening too! We often just go back for an evening meal but will always return for our anniversary.... The perfect venue by far!
by Debbie Wright on Fri, 14th November, 2014
The team at Washingboroughhall Hall Hotel gave us the most perfect wedding day we could ever have imagined. I cannot rate them highly enough. Dealing with Lucy Herring, the owner was a joy, nothing too much trouble and you are treated as individuals and not just expected to have a 'packaged' day. The food was the best ever 'event' food tasted ( and I am in the business!), we were able to create a menu to suit my non meat eating husband as well as our guests. The whole day was magical, organization superb. Could not have chosen any where better. Will always be grateful for getting to experience best day of my life there.

My husband and I married at washingborough hall on October 5th 3013. What can I say.....it was THE most magical day. I know a lot of people say that about their wedding day but the staff truly made every effort they could to ensure our day was perfect. Lucy the owner was there every step of the way, answering my emails late at night on the lead up to the wedding to handing me a glass of my favorite drink peach belini once married. Her husband was out cutting the lawns on the morning of our wedding and the grounds look truly stunning. The food was of fantastic quality from the canapes to the delicious assiette of deserts. We returned ... Read more

We got married on the 28th October and I wanted to firstly say a massive thank you to Lucy and her colleagues. We wanted a small intimate wedding with only 12 guests which was not traditional with speeches but just laid back with a lovely meal. This is exactly what we got. The room we got married in looked amazing and the meal was nothing less than excellent. I am coeliac and they catered for my dietary requirements with ease. The two children attending also were well looked after and Ava was impressed with her frothy milk she had at the end of the meal. Nothing was too much trouble. Talking of a bit of trouble our registrars were running ... Read more

We held our ceremony and reception at Washingborough in October 2012. I honestly cannot recommend Washingborough highly enough, from the first welcome through to the food and the accommodation our experience was first rate. The assistance we had from Lucy in planning our day was second to none, and the staff really are wonderful. We fell in love with Washingborough at first sight - it has the perfect blend of old fashioned country house grandeur, mixed with a cosy, intimate atmosphere. For us, Washingborough ticked all the boxes - we wanted an exclusive venue, we wanted a smallish wedding, but with the capacity for a larger evening reception, we wanted it to feel homely and cosy as opposed to stiff ...

We had our wedding here on the 14th December last year and we cannot express highly enough of Lucy and her team. All our family and friends fell in love with Washingbrough Hall. It was our perfect wedding, small and intimate. Everything was A* from food to service. A big thank you to Lucy and her team for making our day so special in your beautiful Hall. Hoping to make a visit with my husband before harvest this year :) see you soon!

My husband and I got married then had our reception at Washingborough Hall on Saturday. The staff and setting made it the perfect day we had wished for. Every contact that we had with Lucy or any of the staff made us feel like we were the most valued customers (I have no doubt they make every guest feel this way). The rooms were all immaculate and the food was amazing (and plentiful). The venue was intimate and relaxed which is just what we wanted. We have nothing but praise for every aspect of our big day and this was down to all of the staff, especially Lucy. We had an amazing day, it was everything we could have wished ... Read more

My husband and I had our wedding reception at Washingborough Hall in September, and I could not recommend this venue enough! The staff are amazing, so friendly and welcoming, and made us feel like royalty on our big day. Lucy, the owner, was incredible from start to finish by being friendly and laid back throughout the whole process, including on the wedding day. She showed her commitment by being there from first thing in the morning to last thing at night. The food is absolutely amazing, not only was our wedding menu completely incredible, so were the hotel's bar food and breakfasts. We had the most magical wedding day and a lot of this is a credit to Lucy and ... Read more

We got married at Washingborough Hall on the 19th September and I can honestly say that it was the best decision we made. The venue itself is beautiful. We wanted our wedding to feel like we were hosting at our own home, and the wonderful intimate rooms and free reign to personalise as we wished, meant that we achieved exactly that. I was very impressed that our decorations (flowers and family photos) were constantly being moved around so that wherever our guests chose to settle looked the best it possibly could and none of our efforts were wasted. The staff also managed to do something quite amazing - they were always on hand making sure we were all perfectly happy ... Read more

Washingborough Hall is an amazing wedding venue - a beautiful building, in gorgeous surroundings with helpful and friendly staff, it has the whole package. From the moment we met Lucy and the team we knew we were in good hands and that our wedding day would be perfect and they did not let us down. The venue was decorated to our specifications, the food was incredible, Dan even adapted the menu for us and it worked perfectly (we had so many positive comments from the guests) and the rooms were stunning. My husband and I would like to thank Lucy and the team for all their hard work and for giving us the wedding day we had hoped for. We ... Read more

We had the perfect wedding at Washingborough Hall The atmosphere was fantastic, the staff were extremely attentive (some of the best staff you will ever come across), the venue served as the perfect place for both the ceremony and the evening party, they even made it sunny all day!! We will always remember the day, the splendid food, the marvellous honeymoon suite and the warm welcome all of our guests received. We couldn’t have asked for a better day and we will highly recommend this venue to all our friends and family. Thanks for being wonderful hosts, Rob and Sally

We were married on 24 August 2014 - we used Washingborough Hall as it was an exclusive venue that provided a one-stop service. Lucy - the owner: Lucy helped enormously with the planning of the event. She was able to advise us on timings, numbers and who to go to for the support services such as photos, cakes, entertainment etc. She also told us what worked best in that particular setting; all the advice led to the day being a great success. Lucy's personal touch and supremely calming influence helped to keep the day flowing nicely. The staff: Staff were friendly, professional, efficient and helpful. All appeared very experienced - quietly attentive and their contribution helped the day to run ... Read more

My new husband and I had the most wonderful wedding here this weekend and we cannot thank you enough- it was better than anything we could have asked for. Lucy and her team were absolutely fantastic, particular mention to Rob who was so attentive throughout the entire day(and without him nobody would have known how to put on their buttonholes!) and Dan in the kitchen whom unfortunately we never had the pleasure to see as he was so busy serving us with the most delicious food imaginable! Everybody present cannot stop commenting on how fantastic the day was and how smoothly everything ran. The entire hall is decorated beautifully and each and every single bedroom is gorgeous- love all the ... Read more

We held our wedding reception at Washingborough Hall Hotel and we were absolutely delighted with how everything went. We received so much help and support, from planning and preparation to the day itself. Staff were attentive, patient and willing to do anything to make the day special and personal. We worked closely with the chef to plan a vegan menu for our wedding breakfast and the dishes he created were incredible. We had so many compliments about the food from our guests. The hotel even sourced vegan wine for us at last minute. The venue itself is gorgeous and the gardens are perfect for photographs. I would highly recommend Washingborough Hall Hotel for a wedding, or any other special occasion ... Read more

Fantastic exclusive wedding venue. We has both our ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception at Washingborough and can only say that the whole day was exceptional. All the staff from Lucy the owner, Robert front of house and florist, Reception, housekeeping, Dan & kitchen/ waiting staff made the day perfect from start to finish. The food was amazing, even converted non lamb eaters to lamb lovers as it was cooked perfectly. Every guest commented on the lovely setting and the wonderful laid back and relaxed atmosphere which is what we wanted for our day. Once our day was over family and friend met again for breakfast the next morning, we all enjoyed so much we were hard to get rid ... Read more

Washingborough Hall is such an amazing venue to hold your special day, its a hidden gem. Lucy has such a beautiful venue with an amazing team, from the day we booked until the actual wedding day everything was perfect, every email we sent her was answered straight away and nothing was too much trouble, she even fitted in 2 extra guest 48 hours before the big day, amazing!! The suppliers they recommend were brilliant and we would recommend them to everyone. Rob the florist was brilliant, the flowers we wanted to be quite different but he understood exactly what we wanted and the finished article was better then we could have imagined. Everyone commented on the flowers and 3 weeks ... Read more

We chose Washingborough for our wedding reception on 30th May 2014 and could not have been happier with it! The hall itself is beautiful and has a very intimate feel, the fact that it is yours for the day makes it very special indeed. The prices are very competitive; we looked at lots of venues in the area but knew we had found the one as soon as we visited Washingborough. The lovely thing is that the team work with you to fulfil your requirements rather than confining you to a standard package. Lucy and team are highly efficient and so friendly and helpful; nothing was too much trouble for them throughout the year and a half that we spent ... Read more

We knew we had in the region of 40 or so guests attending from various parts of the UK and rest of the World. Having spent several weekends visiting venues along with far too many evenings trawling the internet for alternatives then ruling them out for various reasons… too big, too formal, limited enthusiasm from staff, no ‘Wow’ factor and many other reasons we came across Washingborough Hall having driven past it many times! We arranged to meet with Lucy in order to discuss the possibility of holding the wedding at Washingborough. The moment we arrived we were impressed by the beautiful grounds and entrance, we weren’t disappointed when we entered the Hall either. This has the ‘Wow’ factor! We ... Read more

Dan the head chef was so accommodating to all our special dietary needs and nothing fazed him or was too much trouble.Robert made our bouquets and the table decorations which were all absolutely stunningly beautiful.
