Washingborough Hall is AMAZING!
We booked Washingborough Hall for our wedding just over 2 years ahead of the date after viewing it and 3 other venues. It was the first venue we saw and we fell in love with it straight away, the other 3 venues didn't come close. We were allocated Amy as our wedding

coordinator and we couldn't have been happier. Amy is an amazing person and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. She made us feel at ease and understood us as a couple and what we wanted. We started our wedding weekend on the Friday with a big family meal and it was the best start to an amazing weekend. The venue is perfect and the staff are so attentive and friendly. Special thanks to Andrea for all your help the morning of the wedding and for sorting out the cake on the Sunday for us to take home. Rob Stubbs did our flowers and we were amazed with these, they were more than we could have imagined and again he understood what we wanted perfectly. Rob also acted as MC on our wedding day and we were so pleased, he is the perfect person for this. The food was amazing and all our guest commented on how good it was. We cannot thank Washingborough Hall enough for making our wedding day the best and a day we will never forget. We cannot recommend them enough. If you're looking for the most perfect wedding venue then look no further.

We had our wedding weekend at Washingborough Hall, with a family meal on the Friday and wedding on the Saturday - everything was perfect. From the minute we booked Washingborough 2 years prior, Amy was on hand to help with anything, calming my nerves and guiding us through every step - Amy is an

Washingborough Hall was our dream wedding venue, and everyone went above and beyond to ensure everything was perfect! We had full exclusivity of the venue meaning we got the top standard service from start to finish and Amy is outstanding at her job, she is an absolute credit to the hotel. We had

the best days of our life and i would pay it all again to experience the same day. All of our guests were commenting on how amazing the food was too, we will be back for a meal just to relive the culinary experience. We cannot thank the staff enough for the care and love they all put into their jobs, even mopping the floor multiple times during our rather zealous disco dancing, they looked happy to be there! If anyone is looking to book their wedding here, just do it, dont ask questions its by far the best venue for the job, trust us!

Overall Washy Hall is just outstanding!

We couldn't have wished for a better venue and Amy the director of romance made sure everything went smoothly.. nothing was too much trouble. She offered advice on suppliers, got back to our endless emails and hundreds of questions! Everyone commented on how wonderful the food was

Wow what an amazing day, everything was perfect. Washingborough Hall went above and beyond to make sure we had the most memorable day. Amy the director of romance, was so supportive and helpful. On the run up to the wedding day she made sure she was able to meet us to answer any questions or queries

Read More

we had. Amy made us feel very special every time we saw her, which made us feel like we we're the only couple getting married there. Amy on the wedding day was brilliant making sure everything was set up correctly and even little details like helping my husband and the groomsmen putting the button holes on their suits. All staff were very welcoming and friendly, aiding and allowing us to have a fantastic day!

The venue it's self was simply stunning and we could not have imagined getting married anywhere else.

The only negative moment that left a little bit of a sour taste was the front of house receptionist on the day after the wedding as we were leaving in the euphoria of the whole occasion, we were asked quite abruptly to pay for our drinks, we weren't aware that we would be charged for from a year previous during our taster meal. We felt this was unprofessional, poorly timed and cheeky after we had spent an awful amount of money over the past 18 months with Washingborough Hall.

This however did not spoil our wedding day and other than that we could not recommend Washingborough Hall enough, it is no surprise they have been given so many awards especially with Amy's customer service skills at the helm.

My Husband and I had our wedding reception at Washingborough Hall Hotel on the 6th April 2019. We booked the venue in November 2018 whilst we were attending their Wedding Fayre. From our initial booking Amy was our point of contact and she provided a first class service in response to any of our

requests and was on hand to offer support and advice. On the day Amy and all the staff gave not only us but all of our guests exceptional service and nothing was too much trouble. We would not hesitate in recommending Washingborough Hall Hotel for other couples looking for a personal, exclusive and relaxed wedding venue. Thank you to Amy and the team for making our wedding day perfect.

Where do we start with reviewing the experience we had with Washingborough Hall. We first fell in love with Washingborough Hall back in October 2016 when we came to a wedding open evening. We had a look at a couple of other venues but nothing came close to the feeling we got when we first walked in.

Read More

Even though we booked the venue years in advance we still had regular contact with Amy who guided us through every step of the process and reassured us when we had any queries about our wedding. As our wedding date got closer we began to visit the venue, every time we went we were welcomed by the reception staff and instantly helped us feel relaxed and welcome.
The day of the wedding itself it went smoothly, nothing could have been any trouble for Amy and the staff. Amy guided us through the day and helped keep my nerves at bay. Our guests echo our comments about the food and the experience on the day, they all said it was perfect and nothing could have made it better.
Our wedding day was such a magical day and I can honestly say Washingborough Hall and the staff made our dreams come true.
Thank you so much, Amy and the team.

Many many thanks to Lucy and her team at the Hall for making our wedding day the most perfect and enjoyable day that we could have had !!
Having attended the Hall’s wedding fair in January 17 and having an idea we would like a winter wedding. Lucy suggested New Years Eve 18, which we both

Read More

agreed was a great idea, we then immediately booked ! The planning process that followed with Lucy was very well organised and efficient, right up to the Sunday the 30th December where the team set our table up in advance so we could decorate the night before.
Throughout our time at the Hall from the 30th December through to the 1st Jan – we and our guests were looked after exceptionally well. From Lucy and Rob making sure button holes were fastened to offering me a glass of water after I had spoken to the Registrar just before the ceremony. Just a couple of examples of the many occasions that the Halls team went the extra mile for us. Nothing at all was too much trouble. Many thanks for this – these are the things that we will remember for many years to come, that made our day run very smoothly and very special to us.
Thank you to the Chef’s and their team – the food was exceptional from the Full English Breakfast on the morning of our wedding, the canapes after our ceremony, through to our wedding breakfast that afternoon. Absolutely amazing food !!
Thanks also to the rest of the Hall’s team – always pleasant, cheerful and helpful. Available to help when needed – nothing was ever too much trouble.
Lucy you have an amazing team and should be very proud of them all – which I am sure you are !!
Thank you seems not quite enough, as we cannot fault the Hall, Lucy and her team. Our day went like a dream and has created many happy memories for us, our family and friends.
Rest assured we will be back for Sunday lunch and no doubt afternoon tea.
If you are looking for a very well organised, friendly and exceptional wedding venue – then look no further than Washingborough Hall !!!

All of the staff are so welcoming and friendly and they will go out of their way to ensure you are happy and everything is running smoothly. Amy is fabulous; her attention to

detail is impeccable and she was extremely flexible and accommodating with both pre-wedding meetings and the overall wedding plans. We felt extremely relaxed on the day; everything ran like clockwork leaving us to enjoy the day and celebrate with our friends and family!

The food was delicious and I am still thinking about how tasty the cheese souffle was!

I would 100% recommend Washingborough Hall as a wedding venue and cannot describe how happy we are that we found this place! I hope I get to go back again as a guest!

If you're considering The Washingborough Hall Hotel as a wedding venue consider it no more. Request a meeting with Amy, book in your date and then congratulate yourself on making one of the best decisions you'll ever make. We were married on 24th November and it was exceptional! Every single part of

both the planning and the day was amazing. The venue, Amy, Rob, the bar team...and the chefs - just WOW! Our guests absolutely loved it. "Best wedding ever attended" was the general feedback. They all felt how we did when we first visited; at home (albeit a more impeccably stylish and elegant home) genuinely welcome, relaxed, comfortable and calm on not just our wedding day but every visit in the run up too.
Throughout the whole process, there has not been one jot of stress, Amy has been just delightful, supportive, calm and patient offering advice helping us create a truly perfect day. From the wonderful cosy family meal they created for us on the Friday to the impeccable wedding breakfast the team at The Washingborough truly know what works and nothing is too much trouble.
The lovely Rob, (Robert Stubbs) a member of the Washingborough team and incredible florist almost had me in tears with his beautiful flower creations. The place just looked stunning. The Team here just know what they are doing and they looked after myself, my husband our children and every single one of our guests beautifully. Book in your day, trust their advice and the suppliers they work with and you'll have not just an amazing day but a perfect memory for life. We can't thank you all enough and we'll be back again very soon. Emma & Dave xx

staff were. We then met with Amy the director of romance, from the moment we met her she was just so helpful and full of good advice. We honestly don’t know how we would of planned our wedding day without her. I emailed her all the time with millions of questions but she never failed to get back to me and give helpful answers and advice. My flowers were done by Robert Stubbs who also works at the venue and they were just incredible, I keep looking at pictures of my flowers and I just can’t get over them. Just overall a perfect day, everything ran so smoothly. The food was stunning, all of our guests kept telling us how much they loved their roast beef. The only thing I would say is the day went far too quick and I just wish I could do the day all over again.

Amy was fantastic from our first meeting to the day itself. Nothing was too much trouble and every detail we had mentioned to her was executed perfectly. The day ran without a hitch thanks to Amy, Luke and their wonderful team. Fantastic organisation and perfect customer service. Each time we visited for a meeting, the staff knew exactly who we were and welcomed us warmly.

Everyone has mentioned how amazing the food was for the wedding breakfast and how attentive the staff were to anybody's needs. The flowers that Rob Stubbs did were beautiful, he put together some stunning centre pieces and my bouquet was wonderful as well.

The rooms were amazing and the breakfast is absolutely delicious, freshly cooked for each meal.

We had the most perfect wedding.

Fish, and Rob Stubbs our florist there.
Amy was always available to answer any queries and guided us through the wedding planning process, always mindful of our wishes.
The day itself was perfect, our guests and ourselves were so well looked after from the minute we arrived until the next day. The day was seamless and exceeded our expectations.
The welcome, the food and drink, the flowers, the lovely professional staff, the setting in the Sibthorpe room for our ceremony and the turn around for our wedding meal was amazing, as was all our accommodation.
Washingborough Hall and the owners and staff deserve every accolade they have achieved and hope to in the future.
Special thanks again to Amy, Rob, the Chef, and all the staff who helped to make our day so wonderful and perfect.

My husband and I decided to view Washingborough Hall as it was local to where I grew up and we knew it was a beautiful venue. We both fell in love with it and got introduced to the director of romance, Amy. It was an extremely relaxed meeting with absolutely no pressure put on us at all.

the planning of the wedding Amy was absolutely incredible, I would often email her late at night when something cropped into my mind and she would nearly always reply that evening. Amy is clearly extremely passionate about what she does and always made time for us, whether to meet or just discuss fine details. If you are looking for a stress-free venue, this is your place as Amy has a fabulous eye for detail and we never had to worry as she was so organised we knew that she would make sure everything was perfect, and she did.

The venue is absolutely beautiful and on the day it was immaculate, with the staff all presented extremely well. It was even better than I imagined it. The lawns were freshly cut and everywhere was clean.

Luke, the food and beverage manager was on hand throughout the day and ensured that everything ran smoothly and on several occasions came and asked if we were okay or needed anything which I thought was a lovely personal touch.

We would definitely recommend Washingborough Hall to anyone that is looking for a venue. Our day was perfect in every way and we cannot thank all of the staff enough.

professional and I couldn't have done it without her! The staff at the hall were just amazing on the day, with Luke making sure the wedding breakfast was served to our guests and followed any dietary requests to the correct people.

Well what can I say.. Washingborough Hall was the most beautiful venue we could have ever dreamed of having our wedding day at.

We knew immediately when searching for a venue that Washingborough Hall was the one, it was the first one we viewed, and we knew it didn’t get any better. The friendly

staff, the cleanliness and the warm atmosphere it held was amazing and captured us straight away! We booked for Spring 2018, as it’s our favourite time of year. Amy, our director of Romance was absolutely incredible throughout the whole year lead up. Regular communication, meetings & phonecalls ensured the day went absolutely perfectly. We had so many compliments from our guests about the Hall, and how amazingly organised it was, again, all down to Amy. We would also like to mention Rob, the florist at Washingborough Hall, although he didn’t make our main flowers, he made a beautiful piece for the fireplace, and it was such a special touch. The food was incredible, the rooms beautiful and to have the whole hall exclusively to our wedding party made us feel even more special. We will recommend Washingborough Hall every single time, and we have said we will be returning every anniversary we have ???? there are so so many reasons Washingborough Hall won venue of the year! Amy is definitely one of them. Our day was a breeze because of Amy, and I really have made a lovely friend in her too. Thank you to all at Washingborough Hall for making our day unforgettable, not only to us but our friends and families too. Love to you all, we can’t wait to come back for meals in the future ???? xx

As we live locally to the fabulous Washingborough Hall, we had previously enjoyed many meals/ friends celebrations held here.

From the minute we booked our wedding date we were placed in the very capable hands of Amy Thorne (Director of Romance).

Amy listened to our dreams and ideas and made

Read More

these into reality and what was the most fabulous 3 day wedding event that totally exceeded our original visions. Amy worked closely with me to create our perfect wedding (face to face/e mail & phone), quick to respond to any questions or queries I had, i really cannot praise her enough.

Amy arranged/recommended everything for us from our exquisite flowers (Robert Stubbs) to cake makers (Fiona Milnes), Lantern hire (Lincolnshire Lanterns), Bespoke stationery (In The Details) and a String Ensemble (Blue Topaz).

All of our friends and family commented on how relaxed they were made to feel, and nothing was too much trouble.
Amy certainly ensured that every member of staff was well briefed, and the whole wedding weekend was seamless and perfect.
The food was outstanding (we had previous meetings with Mark who again created our own unique menu.

We can only take this opportunity again to thank Amy - Director of Romance for making our dreams a reality and capturing everything we wanted out of our special day.

Our special thanks again to the amazing Robert Stubbs who created THE most exquisite flowers throughout the Hall and also for all of the bridal party. I have never seen flowers so so perfect before. Robert certainly worked tirelessly to create a perfect fairy-tale vision for us.

Luke and his team behind the bars were also amazing - I can only imagine our friends and family keeping them all 'busy'.

Once again, we were honoured and privileged to have enjoyed such a magical experience that was our wedding weekend at Washingborough Hall, with Amy Thorne heading up all aspects of coordination and making our dreams come true. She certainly deserves the title Director of Romance

But the truly impressive part were the staff from Amy who kept Colin and myself calm and did a fabulous job making sure things ran smoothly, she injected her wicked sense of humour into our day also which helped to make us feel at home. Rob who did the flowers was just perfect he showed so much passion about our day and many of out guests commented on how beautiful the arrangements were. Luke was also fantastic he handled some situations that arose with some guests without drama but quietly and professionally. A massive thank you for making our day truly memorable.

My husband and I live in Washingborough and kept our wedding in April 2017 a very local affair. We were married at St John's Church and held our reception, for 70 guests, just next door at Washingborough Hall Hotel.

We considered a number of venues local to Washingborough / Lincoln for our

reception, ultimately deciding on Washingborough Hall Hotel owing to a number of factors, including the proximity to St John's Church, the good number of bedrooms (we had a number of guests travelling to attend), the ability to exclusively hire the venue and the excellent reputation of the hotel's 'Director of Romance', Amy Thorne.

We booked our wedding in January 2016, for April 2017, so worked with Amy to plan our wedding for just over a year. Throughout the planning process Amy was just tremendous - emails were responded to swiftly, face-to-face meetings planned quickly and nothing was too much trouble. Amy gave us recommendations for suppliers, arranged on-site meetings and menu tastings to help us think about how we our wedding day would look and feel and guided us through the planning process with absolute aplomb, putting us truly at ease.

We were blessed with a sunny Easter Saturday for our wedding day, which really was everything we had imagined and more. It was truly a delight to enjoy the day itself without any worry about planning or practical matters - everything ran exactly as planned (timings kept to, suppliers in place, set up and fed and watered without us even noticing etc) and we had the most wonderful day spending time with all of our guests, enjoying the most incredible food and drink and dancing the night away. Our guests all said what a gorgeous wedding it was and we couldn't agree more.

Planning our wedding was stress-free and our wedding day an utter joy. We would wholeheartedly recommend Washingborough Hall Hotel to any bride and groom looking for a wedding or reception venue in Lincolnshire.

From the moment we met with Lucy to the actual Wedding, we couldn't have had a more helpful and knowledgeable person assisting us with the planning of our 'special

day.' The day itself was truely memorable and exceeded our expectations - which were pretty high!

The rooms looked stunning and were beautifully set both for the ceremony itself and then for the meal. The food was delicious, the service was faultless with everyone served together. The staff were very professional in carrying out their duties while remaining warm and welcoming making the whole day run like clockwork yet creating such a lovely relaxed atmosphere.

Several months after the event many of our guests and their children are still saying that it was the best wedding they've attended and some even asked if we could do it again next year because they enjoyed it so much!.

So a big Thank You to everyone at Washingborough Hall for our great day - great value - great venue - great people.

Wedding at Washingborough hall
We got married at Washingborough Hall on the 28th January 2017. From the booking of the wedding 18 months before to the whole planning process and of course the wedding day, it really couldn't have gone any smoother. Lucy the owner was so great to work with, she was

always there to answer any questions we had and was really helpful in every aspect of planning the day. We had regular meetings so she could check on progress and to make sure other aspects of our day were sorted which was a lovely touch.

Our wedding day was a absolutely amazing, the Winston room looked so beautiful and really did tie in with our theme for the wedding.

The staff were great, they were all very friendly and helped make the day run so smoothly, Lucy was also there for the day to make sure everything went to plan, she greeted us as we arrived in our wedding car with welcome drinks and kept us updated with what would be happening next to prevent us from panicking.

The food was amazing! We had a 3 course meal and coffee for the wedding breakfast and hog roast for the evening. They accommodated for vegetarians and children really well, we couldn't have wished for any more!

Everyone who stayed in the hotel that night said how nice the rooms were and how lovely the breakfast was.

We truly had the best day of our lives and we would like to thank everyone at Washingborough hall for making our day so memorable.

We would highly recommend it to anyone who would like a magical wedding!

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 to an amazing team of people who clearly love what they do. We also used their recommended suppliers for our flowers. Rob is just amazing and our flowers were so beautiful. David Lowerson for our Photographs, again amazing. David did everything we wanted and we hardly knew he was there.
Well done Washy Hall, you made our wedding day perfect in every way possible I can't thank you enough.

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

Read More

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 to very promptly and Amy was happy to accommodate everything we asked for. She was so friendly and easy to talk to and we always felt at ease with her.

Both my husband and I could totally enjoy the day as the staff at Washingborough made sure everything ran smoothly. We got married in the Dining Room and when I walked in it was exactly how I imagined. So much so that I couldn’t stop crying my eyes out as I started walking down the aisle (I guess getting married to the love of my life was something to do with that too). The Winston Room is such a great addition to the hotel and was just perfect for our wedding breakfast. We loved that we got the chance to have a menu tasting of our food choices before the wedding.

All of our guests commented how great the venue was and how lovely the day was. We can’t recommend it highly enough. We wish we could do it all over again. We will definitely be going back to celebrate our anniversaries and remember our special day. Thank you so much to everyone at Washingborough Hall!

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

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.

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

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 and she made our wedding planning fun and exciting instead of stressful. She was there for me whenever I had a query - big or small.
All the staff were fantastic and so accommodating and friendly. They made each guest feel incredibly welcome and all our guests said how wonderful they were.
The food was a highlight! It was exceptional. We wanted our wedding breakfast to be special and they definitely delivered. The room itself is beautiful, even if you didn't decorate a thing yourself, it would still be stunning. The new extension is sympathetic to the age of the building and is light and airy with huge windows.
The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and the bridal suite is stunning.
I couldn't recommend this venue enough!

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.

A day we will never forget, memories we will cherish and all thanks to Lucy, Ed and their amazing staff.

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 to us be untraditional and having the speeches first before the wedding breakfast. I would highly recommend washingborough hall to any bride and groom, it's such a stunning venue and comfortable stay for your wedding guest.

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

Read More

(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 to Amy Thorne, Director of romance, I new straightaway we would get on so well, and we did!
Through the the whole process of planning the wedding Amy has been there every step of the way, her help, advice and support have been absolutely fantastic. Amy has so much patience and understanding especially when I sent her emails and messages at ridiculous times of the day and weekends aswell, She would reply straightaway. Nothing was too much trouble for Amy and now the wedding is over I feel like I have lost a limb but I've also found a fantastic new friend!
Every member of staff at Washingborough hall are brilliant and can't do enough for you, nothing is too much trouble and they make you feel very much at home. The food was absolutely fabulous and everyone said so! Dan is one amazing chef!
Our wedding day couldn't have gone any smoother and that was because of every member of staff especially Amy. Our guests said what a fantastic day and the best wedding they had ever been too, so emotional and laid back which is just how I wanted it to be, it was just perfect.
When we left the hall the morning after we passed people walking in who coming for lunch or to stay the night and my husband said to me he felt very jealous of them because we were going home and they were staying! We both adore Washingborough Hall and cannot wait to go back again, it's perfect.

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 staff know who you are and make every effort to ensure you are well looked after and comfortable whilst you are at washy. I would like to make a special mention to Rob, Luke and Jess who helped on our wedding day and ensured everything went smoothly, and all three members of staff are truly exceptional people.
The bridal suite at the venue is amazing. It's huge, with a double shower and separate roll top bath (which I took a bath bomb with me to take full advantage of!). I've seen a few other rooms and all rooms at the hotel are decorated and maintained to a very high standard.
Also I would like to take a moment to appreciate the food. I have eaten a few times at washy since booking our wedding and I can honestly say that the food at washy is well worth the money and the trip to the venue, many people said our wedding breakfast was the best food they have ever had at a wedding before! Compliments to the chef.
Overall, I cannot find any fault whatsoever with the service at washingborough hall, we have decided that any big celebrations in our family will most likely be held at this gorgeous venue from now onwards and we will most definitely be back for The homemade scones and a cuppa! Thank you so much washy hall! Xx

Read More

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 sold it to us.

On the day the whole of Washingborough Hall looked absolutely stunning from the fairy lights in the trees outside, the beautiful Christmas tree and the gorgeous decorations throughout by Robert Stubbs. We really felt that we did not need to add our table centre-pieces and other little decorations as Washingborough Hall is absolutely stunning and the perfect back drop for a wedding.

The wedding ran so smoothly from start to finish and Amy and the team were so happy to help throughout the day. All our friends and family have complimented us on our wedding with lots of people saying it was the most relaxed wedding they had been too. Lots of people said that it was the best wedding they had ever been too and said that Washingborough Hall was beautiful and that the food was amazing. The guests that stayed all thought the bedrooms were absolutely stunning and Dominic and I would have to agree. We love that each room is unique and all the rooms were homely but also very luxurious and made all our guests feel special.

We felt so welcomed by Amy and the team at Washingborough Hall and by having the venue exclusively really made it feel like our home for the weekend. This was really important to us as it made both Dominic and I and our two beautiful girls feel relaxed and calm. Our girls Bethany and Annabel where so happy that weekend and they too have not stopped talking about the wedding and how it was the best day of their lives!

We really did have the most truly special day, a day that Dominic and I will never forget. Thank you Amy for helping us to bring it all together and we could not have done it without you or Washingborough Hall.

We look forward to coming back to see you all on our first anniversary (hopefully sooner) and enjoying some more special memories at Washingborough Hall for many years to come.

Thank you again

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

Read More

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 were really impressed with the food when we had our tasting meal and struggled to narrow down our choices. On the day, our guests were blown away by the tasty canapes and delicious wedding breakfast (cheese soufflé, braised beef and Dauphinoise potatoes, treacle tart to die for). Our wedding took place in the dining room, looking out onto the gardens. Our 57 guests were comfortably accommodated and the ceremony had a wonderfully intimate feel to it, although it did get very warm in there! We moved into the new Winston Room for our wedding breakfast and it looked so pretty. We chose the newer bridal suite for our wedding night; one of the most comfortable hotel beds we've ever slept in and that huge shower was great. We would most definitely recommend Washingborough Hall to anyone looking for that perfect wedding venue. It's the best place for many miles around and we are so happy we were able to get a date we wanted. Finally, not complaints but hopefully helpful tips for brides to be....with 57 people, the entrance hallway where we held the drinks and canapé reception after the wedding was quite a squeeze and I had difficulty maneuvering in my full wedding dress plus we didn't make the most of the grounds for our photos; the front steps outside the Hall as a backdrop aren't very attractive.

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 & helpful & patient & really did put our minds at ease, always available to contact directly through email or phone. Amy was also really lovely & helpful with ideas and showing me the ropes with pinterest!
The wedding day itself went without a single issue at all, everything was arranged and planned impecibly by all the staff who are always so happy & helpful. My husband & I and our parents have had so so many compliments on the food, the decor, the staff & the attention to detail given by everyone at Washingborough Hall, lots of them saying its the best wedding they have ever been to & the best wedding food they have ever eaten. We booked exclusivity & you really do feel so very special, like you are for one day, the owners of this amazing home having the greatest most glamorous house party ever. All of the bedrooms are gorgeous & so tastefully decorated (especially the bridal suite!) & everyone who stayed enjoyed a lovely breakfast all together the next morning which was very special.
I thank every member of the Washy Hall Team that made my dreams come true, especially Lucy, Robert & Amy who all went above & beyond.
I really cant recommend Washingborough Hall enough & feel like it will have a piece of my heart forever. xx

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 makes it all the more special. We really cannot find any fault. We had such a perfect wedding day and a lot of the thanks for that must go to Washingborough Hall.

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

Read More

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. Nothing was too much trouble and on the day (weekend) every wish and need of our guests was taken care of.
We we free to relax and enjoy out day knowing our guest were safe in the fabulous hands of the team.
The day didn't go with out a couple of bumps (mainly a very large glass of red wine over the back of a very perfect wedding dress!) but the team were on hand within a moments notice making right any problems and even ruined Wedding Dresses!
It's true that it's not the day but the people who share it with you that make your wedding perfect, and sharing our day with Washingborough and the team made it perfect for us and our guests.

Winston room which blends new with old .

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 .
We was shown round all the rooms with numerous family members often unannounced and managed to address all our needs giving excellent customer services .

All the rooms are individually styled with the most comfy beds enormous bath tubs and cleaned to such a high standard , the morning of the wedding they had a full hotel but still had our rooms ready in time for our wedding party to check in swiftly without any disturbance .

The wedding itself went like clockwork we kept to our time line with help from Adam from front of house he was so professional,organised and kept a calm and friendly manner no Matter what task.

I must mention the food we had 50 cheese shuffles from head chef Dan which where all cooked to perfection exactly on time and piping hot , even the most fussy of guest was bold over by the locally sourced menu with accompanying delicious house wines .

The room transition was swiftly done from relaxed intimate wedding in the day to larger evening reception, the new Winston extension brings a fabulous venue at night which we had a large band and dance floor with great atmosphere.

We are a few days in from the wedding and all the family can not stop talking about washy hall , they have the perfect recipe for a wedding venue .

Washy hall has a special place in our hearts we can not praise it enough and Feel so lucky to have been married there .

From start to finish Amy and the team at Washingborough hall were fantastic. We planned our wedding in only 10 weeks but that was no trouble for Amy. 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

Read More

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 rooms looked absolutely fantastic as Amy followed all the details that i has asked for. I was allowed to drop all the decorations, presents, props, and my wedding dress to the hotel a few days before which took a massive weight off my shoulders to know that it was all there ready. All the staff including Amy, the receptionists and the waiters were all so friendly and didn't stop at nothing to make our day the magical day that it was.

Overall I would like to say that this hotel is the most perfect venue for a wedding! Its setting and country shabby chic feel was what i had been dreaming of.

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 even made us bespoke canapes to fit in the theme. On the actual day everthing was just perfect, the ceremony and Winston room looked so classy, the flowers from Rob were so beautiful, the food outstanding and everything appeared to flow seamlessly because of the Washingborough Hall team. It was only afterwards that we were chatting and realised that a few things had been fixed for us - we wouldn't have our marriage certificates now if Amy hadn't found our envelope to pay the registrar with!

Having the venue as exclusively ours for the day was the icing on the cake, all our guests felt they could relax and enjoy the wedding as much as they wanted. Everything was there for us and them.

We were very impressed with the Georgian Manor House & private walled gardens & Lucy's passion for the future of WH. Lucy was a pleasure to work with throughout.

We loved the locally sourced seasonal ingredients & creative British menu options. The quality of the food & wine were very impressive

Read More

& we enjoyed the opportunity to meet with Head Chef, Dan Wallis & Guest Manager, Rob.

We worked closely with Amy Thorne as our Wedding Planner and Washingborough Hall's Director of Romance! Amy was always punctual & very well organised, & happy to share her experience & creative ideas. Amy's attention to detail & desire to ensure you have the very best day possible was evident from the first moment we met & never faltered. It was a pleasure to work with such a talented lady.

As the big day approached, we found the hotel staff to be very flexible & everything was set up exactly as we had discussed. The way everything came together was a credit to the hard work & dedication of Amy, Rob, Adam & the rest of the team. We couldn't have asked for a more wonderful venue, it was everything we had imagined.

Amy coordinated the day perfectly & our timeline ran smoothly throughout the day. Adam & the staff worked tirelessly & subtly to ensure our service was attentive but without imposing. The food was absolutely outstanding & we will certainly return to the restaurant in future. The food at Washingborugh Hall on our wedding day was one of the very best meals we've had anywhere. Baking & serving over 80 soufflés in less than 12mins, to perfection, shows what a talented chef Dan is.

Adam managed the delivery & ensured that the our dining experience was faultless, whilst Rob looked after us with the wine service. There is a strong team spirit & harmony amongst the staff which we feel is a key factor in their success as a hotel & wedding venue. The new Bridal Suite is decorated very tastefully & radiates class. The picturesque gardens & house are beautifully kept year round.

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 in the Winston Room. Large enough to fit in all our guests the Winston Room still felt intimate and is a fantastic addition to Washingborough Hall.

One of the many reasons we chose Washingborough Hall was due to the delicious food that we have previously enjoyed there. The wedding breakfast was one of the best meals we have ever had and all of our guests agreed! Before the wedding day we went to Washingborough Hall in order to sample our chosen menu and make any amendments, this was really helpful and allowed us to discuss any dietary requirements with the chef.

The day after the wedding we were sat outside enjoying a drink with some of our wedding guests before the various journeys home and were speaking to one of the lovely members of staff. She described working at Washingborough Hall as being like part of a family and you can really feel that. A big thank you to all of the staff at Washingborough Hall for letting us be part of your family for the day.... It really was perfect!

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 and also can't eat onions eating out is a nightmare as it is! but Washingborough Hall were amazing!! Dan the chef went through my dietary requirements and as they cooking everything from scratch, they were able to design the menu around me and my needs. Several people at Washingborough Hall have personal experiece with coeliac so take this very seriously. The day went so smoothly we felt completely at ease that everything was taken care of for us. Our day was absolutely perfect and we are so grateful for all the team at Washingborough Hall for our day so special and memorable Thankyou from Mr & Mrs M xxx

complete.

Our wish was to have a small and personal wedding and, from the first time we walked around Washingborough Hall, we knew that this was the perfect place for us. This was further reaffirmed each time we spoke and met with Lucy to discuss our plans for our wedding.

The food was simply divine, the service was personal, the accommodation was luxurious, the grounds were elegant - all combining to create memories which will stay with us for ever!! Thank you to all involved! :)

If you are getting married and want your day to be perfect and memorable then choose to have your special day at Washingborough Hall. They have their new Winston room, that is a large orangery room, with beautiful windows overlooking the grounds, and the walls are a gorgeous blue, the sun pours

into the room and it is just magical. The food is amazing, the staff are wonderful. All the stress is taken away from you from the moment that you decide to have your wedding there. Lucy Herring and her team just take all your anxiety and stress away. AS for your flowers and bridal bouquets, dont bother going to a florist or anywhere else, just go and talk to ROBERT at the hotel, he is amazing and is so creative and can turn normal flowers into beautiful creations that make your reception room come alive and sparkle. Your bridal bouquet will enhance your dress and make you feel like a Princess.

There is no bridal magazine that can over you anything as close as to what Washingborough Hall and Lucy and Robert can do. They are wonderful, and if its a special day, then it can only be there.

I had my special day there on Friday 24th April 2015, and it was perfect, and as I write this I can smile and see all my beautiful flowers that Robert let me bring home, so the magic is still with us now:)

We had our wedding here, it was perfect.
All our small worries had been sorted by the owner, and she just got how we wanted our food - which was lovely on the day.
The room where we got married was set up nicely, and the sun shined in perfectly. You couldn't fault it.
The wedding drinks were

lovely as we came out the room, and the room where we had our meal was amazing, with all our requirements being met and set up exactly as my wife wanted. With our cd playing exactly as we had planned. The master of ceremony was brilliant, and helped put all our Flower buttons on prior to the wedding.
The meal was just wonderful and the teas and coffees were finished off with some home made fudge. A very lovely touch.
The rest of the day was out of this world.
The new orangery worked really well and only emphasises what a lovely place the hotel is. It was a bit warm, but everyone had a great time.
Finally the food was delicious at night - though it could have been easier if they had put it all on one table.
The staff were very helpful, especially one lady at night who helped pack up all our things and went to get me a soft drink.
Thank you for a lovely day.

Excellent from day 1 to the big day. Lucy, the owner is supportive, lovely and very very organised.

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! We chose to have speeches prior to the wedding breakfast and this was a great decision, relaxed but fun, the terrace outside allowed elderly guests to sit while enjoying the sunshine and fresh air. The bridal suite is sublime and the staff are beyond accommodating. Cannot recommend highly enough!

ecstatic with everyone saying that it was the best wedding they had been too! It's the personal touches that really count and I had said to Dan the head chef that I would like an extra chocolate brownie on my dessert, which on my wedding day he remembered!

We are already booked in for our first wedding anniversary!

was as amazing as we knew it would be - again please send our thanks to Dan - many of our guests have written to us to say that it was the most organised wedding they have ever attended, and could we please do it all over again....

A special thank you from us to Robert - he was quite simply brilliant all day. He is a genuinely lovely caring man and that came across to all of our guests. His attention to detail is amazing and almost rivals my OCD....

I have attached some photographs to show how wonderful our day was. Please feel free to use any of them if you wish to - please could you just credit Rich Hines Photography? I have checked with Rich and he has given his consent for this. There are too many to send on one email so a few may come through together.

Again, thank you and your team - and we look forward to seeing you on our Anniversary

Very best wishes

it's a world away from how it looked when I worked there many years ago as a part time waitress.

make our decision - it was the perfect venue. All of the staff really do go the extra mile throughout the entire journey right up until the Big day. You can tell it is as important to them as it is to you to get everything perfect.

Everything was taken care of and the staff were just brilliant in making sure all ran smoothly. Nothing was too much trouble for Lucy who accommodated all of our requests. The food was amazing and our guests commented on what a fantastic day it was and how lovely Washingborough Hall is. Cannot recommend enough.

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). Every guest was taken care of by the staff who were all very welcoming and friendly. I could keep going on about how fantastic washingborough hall is but I will sum it up by saying it is in our opinion the best wedding venue in Lincolnshire, our day was perfect all thanks to them!

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 certainly lived up to expectations. The quality of the food was absolutely outstanding, and Dan, the head chef worked with us to tailor the menu to our tastes. We will certainly be coming back for a meal and drink or two when we are in the area!
During the months of wedding preparation Lucy and her team were extremely helpful and reassuring, answering our questions immediately and accommodating every little request. On the day everything was taken care of to make sure we could concentrate on enjoying ourselves.
A perfect venue and a perfect 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 wines. We wanted to have a wedding cake that would be eaten as dessert and there was no issue with this. The bridal suite is sumptuous and romantic with a view across the garden.

We took over the Hotel from the Friday evening until Sunday after breakfast Having the whole place to ourselves was lovely, it was like welcoming people to our own home. Our friends still talk about our wedding as the best they have been to yet, because of the relaxed atmosphere yet with a true sense of occasion.

We enjoyed every second of our wedding and would not change a single thing, fantastic memories all due to Lucy and Edward and their wonderful team of staff who really know how to make you feel special and take care of every detail from start to finish.

Thank you Lucy, Edward and all your staff.

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 team were consistently checking that I was happy with everything. They set out my table plan just as I had requested and they set out all the guests gifts and favors on the tables for me before we arrived. Lucy and her team greeted us all with a welcome drink and canapés as I had wanted and they were all so lovely, all smiles with a genuine interest in our special day. The food was absolutely delicious as I always knew it would be, with such an amazing chef and team how could it be any other!!x Everything was served very quickly and piping hot, all of my guests loved every mouthful, both at the wedding breakfast and the evening reception. The hotel looked really stunning and was the perfect backdrop for my photographs, I am so so happy I chose this venue. It is simply beautiful. Lucy's wealth of knowledge and experience meant that at no point did I struggle or worry about my special day, both during the planning and the day itself. We booked all the bedrooms for ourselves and evening guests and the rooms were perfect, clean as a whistle, modern and cosy . . . And breakfast the next morning was a treat to wake up to and totally delicious!! I absolutely loved every moment of my time with lucy and her team and I wouldn't change a single part of it. I am so so grateful to them for their time, huge efforts, patience and kind thoughts and words. This is an incredible place and will remain special and precious to me always. Washingborough hall hotel is a sophisticated, professional, beautiful venue that is run and maintained by people who instantly feel like friends to you. Such a rare find these days. Thankyou from the bottom of our hearts for making our special day and it's preparations so incredibly perfect. Lucy, her beautiful little girls who came to see my 'princess dress' whilst wearing their own sparkly gowns ( so adorable ) and every member of staff - thankyou to every one of you. We love you xx

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. When hiring Washingborough Hall Hotel for your wedding you have exclusivity of the venue which was wonderful, all our guests felt so happy and relaxed, the bedrooms were beautiful (especially the bridal suite which has the most comfortable bed ever!!). The food at the Hotel is second to none, Dan the chef was wonderful tailoring the menu to our needs, everything was delicious from the wedding breakfast, the evening buffet (really lovely cheeseboards) and a first class full English the next day. We really cannot find any fault with Washingborough Hall and the service we received at all, we looked at other places to compare and nothing came close as Lucy said "we care about your day" which was so apparent, this really isn't just a money making operation......in fact Lucy advised against an idea of mine which actually saved money!!!! We have had so many compliments about our wedding, venue, food and the hotel staff (especially Ness and Frank).....everyone is wonderful, working so hard to make your wedding day so special and memorable......we really cannot thank them all enough, just really sad it's all over!

The staff there could not do enough for us, they were polite, cheerful, professional and efficient! Despite us not having an evening doo they shut off the snugg room for us and continued to provide a service that was excellent. The bridal suite was fantastic also, the kids were amazed at the size of the ensuite. The following morning everyone came back for breakfast and again the service was fantastic - again catering for everyone's individual needs. We have both said we will definitely be returning for our wedding anniversary and would highly recommend anyone to have their wedding there! Perfect day!

The food was of fantastic quality from the canapes to the delicious assiette of deserts.
We returned here for our one year anniversary and all of the staff remembered us and came over to say hi. It was a delightful touch. The florist Rob Stubbs was also a huge part of our wedding day so was lovely to see him again at washingborough hall on our anniversary. I can not express how perfect our wedding day was and our guests had nothing but praise for the whole day ,night and breakfast the next morning.

We got married on the 28th October and I wanted to firstly say a massive thank you to Lucy and her colleagues.

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 late which was a little concerning but I had nothing to worry about as when I rang down to reception to see if they had arrived the receptionist advised me they were already on the case and were trying to locate them. They really put my mind at ease and this was amazing service as far as I am concerned. We also stayed the night there and had a lovely four poster bed. My husband was impressed by the biscuits in the lovely glass jar on the dresser and I made use of the bath tub! When we went down for breakfast there was a great choice and again I could pick with ease as they had gluten free alternatives. I would truly recommend the venue and the staff to anyone getting married. All of the guests have told me about a 100 times how lovely the day was and how the great food was. Thanks everyone.

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 and commercial, most of all we wanted to feel like it was our day, and it really was. Special thanks go to Chef Dan - we had so many amazing comments on the day and after about the food, and of course to Lucy for co-ordinating the whole day so wonderfully. My only complaint is that it was all over far too quickly and I'd quite like to do it again!!

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 for, and we can't than the staff enough for helping to make it happen!

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 her team as they ensured everything ran perfectly from the moment we arrived.
This hotel deserves a 5 star rating in every way possible!

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 (and I got my port, thanks Rob) and yet they just blended in with our guests. At no point during the day did we feel like we were in a hotel. We felt like we were in a beautiful home surrounded by just friends and family.
The food for our wedding breakfast and evening buffet was absolutely amazing! We have received rave reviews from our guests, especially those who required dairy and gluten free food. As for the evening buffet, it was so good and everything was of the very best quality. The cheese was out of this world!!
It has been difficult for me to decide what was the best part of getting married here as everything and everyone was so wonderful but I do feel that Lucy requires a special mention. This ladies organisational skills are incredible! I don't think I ever waited longer than 20 minutes for a response to an email and whenever I phoned with a query, Lucy had the answer immediately and she remembered every detail of our wedding. This really made us feel like ours was the only wedding taking place at Washingborough hall and that we were very important, not just another bride and groom. I could relax on the day knowing that everything was being handled perfectly.
To all at the hall - thank you thank you thank you!!
See you all soon for the best afternoon tea in Lincolnshire x

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 will definitely be back very soon.

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,

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 smoothly, whilst making us and our guests feel welcome and special. Nothing seemed too much trouble for them and little things were done without us needing to ask, which takes all the stress away. Rob the MC was also calming, helpful, friendly and consumately professional. We couldn't have asked for more from anyone.

The food: Prior to the event, Dan the chef, was extremely helpful and nothing we asked for was too much trouble. He provided useful ideas for the guests with special dietary requirements and was able to cater for everyone's needs. This was quite simply the best wedding meal we have ever had; all our guests felt the same.

The venue: One of our primary reasons for choosing this venue was the beautiful building and the setting. The opportunities for photos are tremendous. We had 50 guests in the day and a further 20 or so in the evening and found that the venue was absolutely perfect for that number (and would take a few more in the evening). During the day there were activities (petanque and croquet) for the guests who wished to partake...they loved it! The bridal suite was great and the other guests were equally happy with their rooms.

Overall, a fabulous wedding venue, which we would not hesitate to recommend.

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 little touches! We cannot wait to see you all again in the near future, thank you so much for giving us the most perfect day! X

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 as they offer a much more bespoke and personal service that other venues that we researched could not.

Thank you for making our day so special and memorable

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 of enjoying coffee on the terrace before family left to all parts of the country and beyond. Washingborough hall is firmly on the agenda for future family gatherings. Prefect venue for a perfect day, can not recommend enough

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 later still are, they were truly beautiful. The staff at Washingborough Hall are fantastic, nothing is too much trouble, Amy was brilliant, she appeared everywhere, in the bridal suite whilst we were getting ready topping up drinks and bringing food, setting up all the tables, favours etc and serving the food for the wedding breakfast, at all times she had the biggest smile on her face, such a lovely girl and a star to have on your team at Washingborough Halll. Now the food, well what can we say the food was absolutely amazing, Dan and his team did a fantastic job. From our trail meal nothing was too much trouble, we couldn't quite decide on a dessert so we had a quick chat with Dan, he popped into the kitchen & 5 mins later came out with a masterpiece that we had on our wedding day, a Trio of Lemon desserts, the Lemon Posset was scrummy and everyone wanted more. Everyone commented on how delicious the food was for such a big number of guests as we find most wedding we have been to you tend to loose out on the food, but not here the standard was very high, from the Canapés, the Wedding Breakfast, the evening buffet and the dessert buffet it was all wonderful and we couldn't have asked for it to be any better. When you book your wedding here you will have no worries it will be perfect!

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 planning our wedding or on the day itself.

We had an absolutely fantastic day and many of our guests commented on what a lovely venue it was, how good the food was and how friendly the staff all were.

We will certainly be returning soon whether it will be to celebrate another special occasion or simply to drop in for lunch!

Thank you

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 sat with Lucy for a while to discuss, budgets, numbers of people, possible running order, food requirements and how the day would run. Lucy was fantastic – we had a good idea of what we wanted but weren’t sure of the finer points or possible cost or timing implications. We got some really great suggestions and in some areas we actually saved money! We then had a look around Washingborough Hall. The entire venue is beautifully decorated and you get a real sense of occasion without losing any comfort or intimacy.
We left the Hall with a clear idea of how our wedding day would play out and Lucy had agreed to send across a quote for the day. We were keen to have Washingborough on an exclusive basis to ensure that everyone could truly enjoy the wedding and be themselves. The support from Lucy and the team when any decisions, advice or changes to plan were needed was fantastic (we did change things quite a lot as well!!) The day of the wedding went perfectly. All staff were there to help whenever needed… attentive but not overbearing, friendly but not too familiar – Lucy made sure that timings were perfect or changed if we were taking longer over something – again… nothing was too much trouble. In summary the venue is beautiful and we had the most perfect day. Thank you!

My wife and I had our wedding and reception at Washingborough Hall on the 24th May 2014.We had the most amazing day.From the beginning Lucy was very friendly, highly efficient and helpful as were the whole team of staff. 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.

Every time we have visited Washingborough Hall we feel like we are coming home, somehow the very building seems to wrap it's arms around you and gives you a great big hug and the staff make you feel the same, we now feel we are visiting old friends.

It's about time we should come back and have dinner and I must just mention the beautiful bridal suite, it was our pleasure to spend, very untraditionally, but we are anything but, the night prior and after our wedding here, a beautiful large room, with a sumptuous bathroom and enough space to have a dance in with lovely garden views, indeed a pleasure!

All our guests said what a beautiful wedding it was , the service, the location, the hotel and the food, we cannot recommend highly enough.Thank you to Lucy and all your fantastic team.

Lynne and Sue Mattinson.
