Absolutely incredible!

We had the absolute best wedding and all the coordination and planning from Dine and Howsham Hall was excellent. Craig was amazing and was key to our day and made everything go perfectly. Couldn鈥檛 have done it without him and the team. The venue is unreal and the food exquisite. Cannot recommend Howsham Hall and Dine enough!

Stunning venue, amazing day

There just aren鈥檛 enough words to describe how wonderful the venue and team are at Howsham Hall. We had the most incredible day.
Liam our wedding co-ordination was exceptional. His organisation and attention to detail were second to none. He thought about things that hadn鈥檛 even occurred to us and as a result the day ran like clockwork. Tim the house manager was also wonderful and could not do enough to help. All of the staff were amazing.
We need to also mention the quality of the food which was fantastic and our guests all commented on this.
We cannot recommend Howsham
Hall and the Dine team enough. We鈥檇 do it all again to tomorrow if we could

A day we will never forget

Howsham Hall was the venue we chose for our wedding in July. From our initial viewing we were so impressed, not only by how magnificent the Hall was, but also by the professionalism of everyone we met from Dine. As well as ensuring everything on our wedding day ran seamlessly, the catering and hospitality the Dine team offered was second to none. We and our guests has the most amazing day, one we we never forget!

The whole day was absolutely perfect and that is down to you all and the smooth running of everything. The venue is absolutely stunning and all the guests were blown away by it. We couldn鈥檛 have asked for anything more.

The most incredible venue. The most incredible team.

I cannot express how amazing this venue is and how utterly perfect the Dine team are. From start to finish, everything is organised and executed to the utmost perfection.
Craig looked after us from the moment we booked all the way through to after our big day. He was fantastic. He directed everyone on the day itself and put our minds totally at ease. The team were so professional and lovely. They made us feel very well looked after as well as all of our guests.
Every one of our guests commented that our wedding was the best they had ever been to and for this we thank all of the team at Dine.
Howsham Hall is a beautiful little hidden gem. Our guests were completely stunned with each and every aspect of it. There was not a single room which disappointed. Having full use of the venue the night before the wedding was also wonderful.
We cannot wait to return for an afternoon tea or to stay again in the future.
I honestly, from the bottom of my heart, cannot thank the team at Dine enough for making our day truly perfect.
The most beautiful place, the most wonderful team, and the most incredible service.
Thank you.

Fantastic wedding venue

Howsham Hall was a brilliant venue for our wedding. We arrived in the morning and felt like guests ourselves, relaxed in the knowledge that Craig, Tim and their team had absolutely everything under control. The drinks were great, accommodating for our preference of ale over lager! Food service brilliant, all dietary requirements accounted for efficiently and guests commented on how good the food was. We partied until late and really enjoyed having the venue to ourselves with 12 bedrooms!

Couldn鈥檛 ask for a better day

Craig, Natalie and the team are amazing. Nothing is too much hassle and they will guarantee you have a seamless and special day. We were concerned with covid issues, guests unable to attend and rearranging our date several times but Dine ensured we had the day we deserve and we loved every minute of it.
We would 100% recommend Howsham Hall to all newly engaged couples looking for a venue. Our guests were stunned by the venue and wowed by the quality of the food!

The best day of our lives

Howsham Hall is a stately and exquisite rural setting with its formal gardens, lawns, river terrace, beautifully proportioned public rooms, in a court yard evening area.

The guest rooms are lavish, quirky, imaginative and unique.

The staff are friendly, helpful, thoughtful, professional and generous.

The food is exquisite drawing the cuisines of a range of countries and cultures. Our own meal was a combination of vegetarian and vegan dishes all of which was met with the highest of compliments. The staff accommodated afternoon entertainment on the lawns with canap茅s and drinks, a formal dinner for over 80 and an evening event with DJ and live band as well as delicious food boxes for the evening guests without batting an eye lid.

Howsham Hall and the Dine team provided us with everything we needed in terms of support, advice, care and service. We really can鈥檛 recommend them highly enough

Extra special

Howsham Hall was the most wonderful setting for our wedding weekend - we had guests travelling from overseas and we had the run of the whole house, for the whole weekend: the fact that all of our nearest & dearest could stay in the bedrooms made everything extra-special! The rooms are beautiful, the house is the most picturesque setting, and nothing was too much trouble for Craig, Natalie and the team. Our guests all commented on the great food and really generous portions too!! We would recommend Howsham Hall - and the Dine team - for anyone planning their special day.
