In the 18th century, the Heathcoat family created a distinguished house and parklands at Normanton in Braunstone, Leicestershire. This breathtaking 1700s estate eventually became the seat of the Earl of Ancaster. Normanton Park Hotel was created as a premier wedding venue from the remaining historic stable building. It stands on the magnificent grounds with an unrivalled location on the south shore of Rutland Water. The venue offers excellent food, attentive service and superb comfort - everything you will need to make your special occasion perfect.

Fantastic wedding day with beautiful surroundings

When deciding on a venue for our wedding reception there was no questioning were to go. Normanton Park Hotel has the most beautiful setting and attentive staff.
From the very beginning staff were available to help with the planning, answer any questions we had and suggest ideas.
As most of our family were travelling a long distance to get here they stayed the night before the wedding as well as the wedding night. Housekeeping staff made sure their rooms were homely and other staff were very welcoming.
On the day of our wedding we returned from the church to be greeted at the car by the wedding coordinator with our arrival drinks (a nice touch!).
The waiting and bar staff were all very friendly and helpful, they couldn’t do enough for you and always had a smile on their face.
After the wedding breakfast the room was quickly cleared and cleaned ready for our evening reception and extra guests.
Throughout the day the wedding coordinator was there to organise food, drink, and even our dj. We didn’t have to do a thing and felt confident that the wedding coordinator had everything in hand.
We had a fantastic day and all our wedding guests commented on how stunning the view was.
Thank you Normanton Park Hotel.
