About Donington Park Farmhouse

Built in 1576 and hosting weddings since 1984 Donington Park Farmhouse was probably the first barn wedding venue in the country! Nestled in the picturesque Derbyshire countryside and enjoying plenty of outdoor space in which to enjoy spectacular views, this venue is truly something special.

Donington Park Farmhouse invite you to relax and enjoy a day that’s really rather magical - and a little bit different. If the idea of eating in original Pig Sties and dancing in a magnificent Threshing Barn appeals then we’re certainly the place for you. Your wedding reception can be as formal or as casual as you like; you set the tone and we’ll be right there with you. You may choose to have just your reception and evening with us or come here for the whole day. 

You can hold your civil ceremony in either the Hitching Room, for up to 80 guests, or The Threshing Barn, for up to 150.  Both spaces offer plenty of character and bags of potential to decorate and turn into something uniquely you.

The Barn is fully licensed and heated for all year round use and can cater for celebrations of all sizes, from small intimate gatherings to bustling parties of up to 300 guests. Deck the place with fairy lights, fill it with flowers or blow-up hundreds of balloons – this is your wedding venue and should match your vision! 

You’ll be treated to a range of delicious catering options and are invited to be as formal or as relaxed with this as you like. You can arrive at the venue as early as you like and you can dance until 1am. If you’re itching to start planning the party of a lifetime at Donington Park Farmhouse but have no idea where to start, you’ll also be given the services of a professional wedding co-ordinator who will guide you through the entire process.

If all of this sounds like what you’re looking for, contact us today to book a viewing. 

  • The hotel has 19 lovely bedrooms, available to your guests at a discounted rate
  • Private and secure courtyard with outdoor seating, perfect for allowing younger guests to play safely
  • Fully heated & licensed for all year round use
  • Choice of two rooms for your civil marriage

    The Perfect Day, at a Perfect Venue

    Well what can we say! From our first look around, the meetings and planning to our wedding was such a pleasure....
    We had the most incredible wedding day, made even more amazing by having such an incredible venue, with amazing staff...The comments we received on how perfect Donington Park Farmhouse was by our guests have been wonderful and everyone was blown away by it.
    We were lucky enough to have some beautiful sunshine throughout the day so guests could enjoy the lawn games we had for outside. The outdoor area is fantastic as it is enclosed and the children in our party could freely play without anyone having to worry.
    The afternoon tea was loved by all and again, guests have all commented on how nice the food was, the couple of little things we enquired about were sorted straight away. The evening food was also exceptional, and the kitchen staff were a pleasure and couldn’t do enough for us.
    A special thank you to Josie, we couldn’t have asked for more of a kind hearted and lovely person to help us to plan, prep and make our day run smoothly...you definitely went the extra mile to make sure everyone was having a perfect time! You made us feel so at ease during planning and showed real compassion and excitement for us that just added to our own excitement in planning our big day!
    Also thank you to Jack for continuing to make sure everything was perfect into the evening!
    We had an incredible day, we wish we could do it all over again!
    Georgie and Chris Prophet
