About Horsley Lodge

What a venue! Set within 180 acres of stunning grounds, Horsley Lodge is perfect for a wonderful wedding celebration.

Dating back to 1863, Horsley Lodge has gained a reputation as one of Derbyshire's premier country hotels and wedding venue. Originally built by The Earl of Stainsby as a wedding present for his son, the former Manor House has been owned by the Salt Family and under their management since 1990. The Amber Suite has been totally refurbished in 2016 with decor by an award winning interior designer, and provides the perfect setting for a wonderful banquet.

Horsley only hold one wedding per day, and can offer you exclusive use of the venue. During your big day you will not only be able to make full use of the house for a wonderful private celebration with your guests, but you will also have the undivided attention of our excellent wedding co-ordinator. Our dedicated wedding co-ordinator will be on hand, drawing upon their wealth of experience, to ensure that your day is planned to perfection and that everything runs seamlessly.

The hotel is licensed to hold civil ceremonies and partnerships, so you can spend your whole day at Horsley Lodge. Following your ceremony, you and your guests can enjoy a welcoming drinks reception in the atrium; a huge glass room to meet and greet in any weather. Easily able to accommodate up to 110 dining guests and 160 for the evening festivities, the food it lovingly prepared by a team of excellent chefs, using local fresh produce, and served to your guests by well rehearsed professional staff.

The grounds of this country house provide the most spectacular setting for your wedding photographs. To make the most of the stunning surroundings, you can enjoy the use of our ‘limousine’ golf buggy on a drive around the grounds, where your uniformed chauffeur will serve you drinks throughout. With car parking for 200 cars, and within easy links to the main road networks, it's ideally located to get your guests here on time to enjoy all that's in store for them.

    Wedding Day Perfection

    We got married at Horsley Lodge on 11th Nov 2017. We cannot fault anything it was quite literally “The perfect Day” We we’re helped with the planning by Wedding coordinator Laura who guided us through the whole process! She went over everything with us and made sure everything was just how we wanted it! The day was overseen by Matt who did a tremendous job of making sure everything thing ran smoothly! The wedding breakfast was excellent and a nice touch was the chef came out of the kitchen to ask us if everything was ok! The evening buffet was also spot on! The whole day from the ceremony to the last dance was truly memorable and we would have no hesitation in recommending Horsley Lodge to anybody considering the venue for their wedding! Well done Horsley and thanks for everything!

    Our Special Day

    We booked our wedding ceremony & reception at Horsley Lodge with Laura & her team, everything was perfect, the weather, the setting & the staff, from start to finish we couldn't fault it. Laura made us feel at ease through the booking to the actual day itself, nothing was too much trouble, for her & all the staff. The venue itself was as other reviews have said, it is very picturesque & down by the fountain is perfect for wedding photos, even had a ride down to it in the golf buggy, which was great fun & recommended! The room & Atrium were great for our wedding party & the in-house DJ went down a storm! The food & service at the Wedding Breakfast & Evening Reception was second to none & everyone enjoyed it, & said how nice it was. My Wife & i had the Salt Suite & The Rutland Suite which suited us as she stayed over the night before, so she & the bridal party got ready in the morning in The Rutland, & the conservatory was used for that & also for photos for the wedding both were lovely spacious rooms. Other members of the wedding party booked rooms in the main part of the hotel & were really pleased with the facilities & the breakfast. All in all a perfect day & couldn't have asked for anything better & thanks to Laura for adding the personnel touch
