Perfect venue for a perfect day

Allington Manor is a gorgeous venue, and the staff are incredibly attentive and supportive throughout the process and on the big day itself.
Having booked the venue during a lockdown, it was several months before we were able to see it in person - however it did not disappoint. This hotel has oodles of charm and as it's family-ran, it comes with that cosy feeling too.
Leo from day one was a big support, and as we chose a package we knew that he would have on hand the best suppliers that he works with (It also helped that his lovely wife Amy does make-up too). He also has a wonderful team on hand to help him with events, including the star that is Lesley.
As soon as we arrived the day before, Lesley was there for any questions we had, and anything we wanted to go through. Our big day was fantastic and ran seamlessly. We knew that Lesley was there behind the scenes to guide us through, and also to sort anything out that was needed (including when a meat dish was put down in front of the vegetarian, Lesley was immediately there to magically swap it out for the veggie option).
We can't say thank you enough to these guys, for helping us with our special day x

A venue full of history & charm

With covid restrictions I was looking for a small venue in notts but chanced on Allington Manor just on border into Lincs. It’s a venue with a lot of charm and history. Allington village is also very quaint in the middle of gorgeous countryside. Leo (owner) is very personable and down to earth. He was very adaptable to our needs and professional throughout. Excellent service was provided throughout the day & Lesley (hostess) brought our canapés into the garden due to us being graced with gorgeous autumnal sun & ran the wedding breakfast service seamlessly. Leo spent lots of time chatting with us post the meal. The venue is his childhood home so he told us lots of history & stories about the venue. Absolutely loved all the Jacobean details especially his high chairs! The venue is perfect for a low key, intimate wedding. All the bedrooms were gorgeous and full of character. The whole venue is very clean & tidy. Can’t wait to see the professional photos which will have captured the day & characterful venue. Would definitely recommend Leo & the venue.

The most perfect day!

We decided to choose Allington as our wedding venue as wanted the full day in one location and also wanted a small, intimate wedding that we could have both indoors and outdoors.
Allington is a stunning location, which is so well maintained by Leo and his team. He made sure that the day was exactly what we wanted, flowed perfectly and no stress.
The day from start to finish went perfectly, even the weather was on our side and so the beginning of our evening reception was moved outside to the gardens which was a wonderful idea. We were even able to have our family dogs attend our outdoor ceremony which was just the icing on the cake!
Allington Manor can also cater for larger weddings too with a marquee extension which is great as an additional option. They provided us with local suggested suppliers to also work with for catering, flowers, cake etc which was great however didn’t make us feel pressured to use these.
My bridal party/family stayed at the manor with the rooms available which are absolutely stunning and so welcoming.
We would highly recommend Allington as a wedding venue, many of our guests said how the day was perfectly intimate yet didn’t feel cramped and overcrowded and that the service was exceptional. In fact, one newly engaged couple went and booked it as their venue following our wedding day!

Fantastic venue

Warm, welcoming and friendly. A fantastic venue full of character. Nothing is to much trouble. The rooms are spacious and extremely comfortable. The gardens are very picturesque with a lovely view of the countryside. Whether you want a larger wedding, or a more intimate wedding I really couldn’t recommend Allington manor highly enough. We will be returning again for a weekend away in the future.

Perfect all round

My husband and i can't recommend Allington Manor high enough. We had the most perfect wedding day. The setting was stunning, attention to detail was spot on and the staff couldn't have been more attentive. Lesley you were just brilliant!

Wedding reception

We couldn't ask for better venue for our wedding reception. Wonderful place with beautiful grounds and staff that goes above and beyond.
Our evening food supplier (Burger van not connected to Allington Manor) cancelled few hours before the food supposed to be served but Leo saved the day by offering to drive to one of the local takeaways and serving it on boards. If it wasn't for him we wouldn't have any evening food. We had an amazing time and would wholeheartedly recommend Allington Manor.

Amazing unique venue

Perfect from the floors to ceiling. Had my wedding here last week, Leo was exceptional and highly attentive. Customer service could not be faulted. It was clean and friendly atmosphere and the rooms were stunning and a very very reasonable price.
Would recommend this to anybody and will definitely be staying again.

Perfect Wedding venue

I stayed in the gorgeous lady's room the night before with my MOH. she was absolutely blown away by the place, as she had only seen photos (which don't do it justice!).
We arrived with tonnes of food and wedding bits that they kept safe for us.
Wedding day arrives.. Amy (owner and make up artist) is running around helping with everything upstairs, moving my clutter (sorry!) To ensure we got nice photos, putting my bits and bobs into the lord's room read for that night (with the new hubby). She was bringing us all pots of tea, glasses of wine, amaretto.. anything we wanted, she was there. I then went upstairs with her to have my make up done and she was amazing, she did an astonishing job! Even with my troublesome watery eyes.. she was also waiting by all day for any touch ups needed- but I didn't even need it! (Amazing make up skills or what)
Although I didn't go downstairs until the wedding began, I understand Leo was helping everything run smoothly down there. Making sure everything was perfect for the ceremony and the reception afterwards. He made sure everything was exactly how we wanted. Sorted out all the food and furniture etc.
Once the day started flowing, the staff were ensuring the place was beautiful, cleaning up after my messy guests...
Perfect day thank you

Dream wedding venue

We got married at Allington Manor August 2017. The whole day was outstanding! The venue was absolutely stunning and needed very little dressing, as it is such a unique venue. When I arrived for the ceremony I was overwhelmed at how amazing the whole place looked. We had the ceremony in the drawing room, which made the ceremony feel very intimate and emotional for us and our 48 guests. We had sunshine all day so really made the most of the gardens, where we enjoyed post ceremony celebrations, photos and drinks late into the night.The whole day ran smoothly thanks to Leo and his team; my husband and I didn't have to worry about a thing. Leo had some great contacts so everything was taken care of; we had amazing flowers which looked incredible, delicious food loved by everyone, a very unique and delicious handmade cake and a great DJ to get the party started. The bedrooms were a real luxury too, making the whole weekend feel very special for us and our close family and friends. I would highly recommend this venue, it is well worth a visit, whether it is for your wedding or just afternoon tea or a special night away. It has so much charm and character, I guarantee you will be impressed and Leo is so warm and welcoming. We are so pleased to be able to look back at our wedding day and have no regrets, absolutely flawless! We can't wait to return in the future!!!
