About Washingborough Hall

Church Hill, Washingborough, Lincoln
Lincolnshire, LN4 1EH

A gorgeous, traditional country house just a stone’s throw from Lincoln, welcome to Washingborough Hall Hotel. A Grade II listed, Georgian manor house set in three acres of mature, sweeping gardens, it is truly a one-of-a-kind wedding venue. An award winning hotel - including ‘Best Wedding Hotel 2018/19’ – nobody forgets a wedding at Washingborough in a hurry!

The crown in the Lincolnshire village of Washingborough, the hotel boasts its own private entrance into the delightful church! Ideal for your ceremony, it is a wonderfully intimate setting to say ‘I do’ to that special someone.  Alternatively if you prefer a civil ceremony, there are also 3 rooms which are licensed within the hall itself.

With a history dating back over 250 years, Washingborough Hall has been lovingly restored and maintained by its current owners - Lucy and Edward, who purchased the hall back in 2008.  With the addition of the Winston Orangery in 2015 and 6 further bedrooms in the adjoining Church House in 2017, it really has become the most gorgeous home / setting for your wedding day.  

Accommodating up to 110 guests in the day and 150 guests in the evening, the fabulously-appointed Winston Room is a stunning, orangery-style room perfect for both your wedding breakfast and evening reception. Light-flooded with expansive windows, the Winston Room allows your party to spill out into the manicured grounds for a drinks reception and – of course – your wedding photos!  The Winston Room also connects with the Dining Room.  There is also another room called the Sibthorpe Room which can be used for smaller weddings and breakfast the following morning.

With the help of Washingborough Hall’s very own Director of Romance - Amy or the Hall's owner - Lucy, nothing is left to chance in planning your special day, their attention to detail is second to none. From delicious menu options to delicate décor, the hotel’s team will ensure that your wedding day is everything you dreamed it to be!

Once the celebrations have drawn to a close, Washingborough Hall Hotel can offer both you and your guests a comfortable range of accommodation to retire to.

Outstanding venue and the staff were amazing
Venue Service

By Annette and Paul, on 17 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 21 Sep 2019

Washingborough Hall was our dream wedding venue, and everyone went above and beyond to ensure everything was perfect! We had full exclusivity of the venue meaning we got the top standard service from start to finish and Amy is outstanding at her job, she is an absolute credit to the hotel. We had the best days of our life and i would pay it all again to experience the same day. All of our guests were commenting on how amazing the food was too, we will be back for a meal just to relive the culinary experience. We cannot thank the staff enough for the care and love they all put into their jobs, even mopping the floor multiple times during our rather zealous disco dancing, they looked happy to be there! If anyone is looking to book their wedding here, just do it, don't ask questions its by far the best venue for the job, trust us!

Thank you for your kind words, such a fabulous wedding day Annette and Paul in September of this year and how lucky were you with the weather! As with all of our weddings, you had exclusive use (with use of all 20 bedrooms for the night of your wedding). With a lot of your guests travelling you also had the bedrooms the night before your wedding as well which always works out really well when people have to travel from further afield. Thank you again for choosing us to host your beautiful day, such a lovely family wedding and we look forward to seeing you both again very soon when you are up visiting family.

Washingborough Hall is AMAZING!
Venue Service

By Joanna and Rory, on 17 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 07 Sep 2019

We booked Washingborough Hall for our wedding just over 2 years ahead of the date after viewing it and 3 other venues. It was the first venue we saw and we fell in love with it straight away, the other 3 venues didn't come close. We were allocated Amy as our wedding coordinator (who worked with us from booking through to the actual day itself) and we couldn't have been happier. Amy is an amazing person and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. She made us feel at ease and understood us as a couple and what we wanted. We started our wedding weekend on the Friday with a big family meal and it was the best start to an amazing weekend. The venue is perfect and the staff are so attentive and friendly. Special thanks to Andrea for all your help the morning of the wedding and for sorting out the cake on the Sunday for us to take home. Rob Stubbs did our flowers and we were amazed with these, they were more than we could have imagined and again he understood what we wanted perfectly. Rob also acted as MC on our wedding day and we were so pleased, he is the perfect person for this. The food was amazing and all our guest commented on how good it was. We cannot thank Washingborough Hall enough for making our wedding day the best and a day we will never forget. We cannot recommend them enough. If you're looking for the most perfect wedding venue then look no further.

Thank you for your kind words, such a fabulous wedding day Joanna and Rory in September of this year. From the gorgeous flowers, amazing food and Harry Potter glasses, what an incredible wedding to host and share in. As with all of our weddings, you had exclusive use (with use of all 20 bedrooms for the night of your wedding) - you also had the majority of the bedrooms the night before with a lot of guests travelling. Thank you again for choosing us to host your beautiful day, such a lovely wedding and we look forward to seeing you both again very soon.

The most perfect day
Venue Service

By Jessica and Joseph, on 28 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 24 Aug 2019

We had our wedding weekend at Washingborough Hall, with a family meal on the Friday and wedding on the Saturday - everything was perfect. From the minute we booked Washingborough 2 years prior, Amy was on hand to help with anything, calming my nerves and guiding us through every step - Amy is an absolute star and made the wedding planning as smooth as possible. The staff at Washingborough are so welcoming and polite and were absolutely amazing on the day. The attention to detail at Washingborough is perfect and no ask is too big for the staff. The food was fantastic and all our guests were commenting about the food, staff and exclusivity of the venue. If you are currently considering Washingborough Hall as a venue, just book it - you honestly won't regret it. It was the most perfect day and we can't wait to visit for our anniversaries. Thank you Washingborough Hall for making our dream come true.

Thank you for your kind words, such a fabulous wedding day Jessica and Joe on the August bank holiday Saturday this year and how lucky were you with the weather! As with all of our weddings, you had exclusive use (with use of all 20 bedrooms for the night of your wedding). The church next door was the perfect addition for you as you wanted a traditional church ceremony, followed by a country house wedding reception. Thank you again for choosing us to host your beautiful day, such a lovely family wedding and we look forward to seeing you both again very soon.

Our wedding was amazing!

By Helen and Sam, on 17 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 19 Aug 2019

We couldn't have wished for a better venue and Amy the Director of Romance made sure everything went smoothly and nothing was too much trouble. She offered advice on suppliers, got back to our endless emails and hundreds of questions! Everyone commented on how wonderful the food was and the staff were extremely attentive. We had exclusive use of the venue and all our guests commented on the rooms and how gorgeous the grounds were. We can't wait to visit again.

Thank you again for choosing us to host your beautiful day, such a lovely intimate wedding and we look forward to seeing you both again soon.

The perfect wedding day
Venue Service

By Adam and Catriona, on 17 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Jul 2019

My wife and I had our wedding reception at Washingborough Hall in July straight after getting married at St John's Church next door. It is no understatement when I say it was the perfect day and I do believe a large part of that is due to Amy and the staff at Washingborough Hall. They were so attentive all day, and kept everything running so smoothly. Your wedding day is a bit like a blur, so surreal and you have no concept of time. Amy and the team were incredible at keeping everything running on schedule all while quietly working away in the background. Always present but never overbearing. We hired the hall for our exclusive reception. The hall is a beautiful building and a picturesque backdrop for our formal photos. The Church is literally a stone's throw away and through a very convenient gate through the wall. The food was an absolute highlight. We have had so many compliments from so many people about the food. I really couldn't fault the food, it was lovely. Also, to note is that the serving sizes were very large. Often I find myself hungry at weddings because the meals are stingy, at Washingborough this was no problem at all. The rooms at the hotel all have amazing character to them. We stayed in the bridal suite at the front left of the building / room 20). The 4 poster bed was huge and so comfortable. The room let in so much natural light. All in all, it was the best day ever and Washingborough Hall delivered above and beyond what we could have dreamt of.

Thank you for your kind words, such a fabulous wedding day Catriona and Adam back in July of this year. I'm so pleased you opted to use the church next door, the most idyllic location and all through the secret gate. As with all of our weddings, you had exclusive use (with use of all 20 bedrooms for the night of your wedding), as well as using the majority of the bedrooms the night before as a lot of your guests were travelling. We have an amazing team at the hall who are all dedicated to making sure your day runs seamlessly - your words are wonderful to hear so thank you. Thank you again for choosing us to host your beautiful day, such a lovely wedding and we look forward to seeing you both again very soon.

The whole day ran smoothly from start to finish!

We had our wedding in May 2019 at Washingborough Hall. It was just perfect, nothing was too much for them and the whole day ran smoothly from start to finish! I couldn’t have asked for a better team to assist with our wedding, they were amazing :) Amy was especially amazing, she helped with all my weird and wonderful questions no matter what day it wasn’t or what time it was. I literally couldn’t have done it without her. Thanks again

Perfect wedding
Venue Service

By Lisa and David, on 17 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 06 Apr 2019

My Husband and I had our wedding reception at Washingborough Hall Hotel on the 6th April 2019. We booked the venue in November 2018 whilst we were attending their Wedding Fayre. From our initial booking Amy was our point of contact and she provided a first class service in response to any of our requests and was on hand to offer support and advice. On the day Amy and all the staff gave not only us but all of our guests exceptional service and nothing was too much trouble. We would not hesitate in recommending Washingborough Hall Hotel for other couples looking for a personal, exclusive and relaxed wedding venue. Thank you to Amy and the team for making our wedding day perfect.

Wow!
Venue Service

By Emma and Dom, on 28 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 09 Mar 2019

Right from the moment we walked into Washingborough Hall for a viewing we fell in love with the place. The atmosphere in the venue is just so relaxed. On the lead up to the wedding we was in touch with Amy from the venue on a regular basis. Any questions we had she answered quickly and without making us feel silly for not knowing the finer details of getting married. The wedding day itself was just perfect, I can honestly say I felt no stress at all and I truly believe this was due to the amazing staff and Amy at the hall who helped keep everyone so relaxed and comfortable. The food itself was fantastic and all of our guests loved the hog roast in the evening. :-) Thank you so much Washy Hall for an amazing day. Xx

Best wedding ever attended
Venue Service

By Emma and Dave, on 28 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 24 Nov 2018

If you're considering Washingborough Hall Hotel as a wedding venue consider it no more. Request a meeting with Amy, book in your date and then congratulate yourself on making one of the best decisions you'll ever make. We were married on 24 November 2018 and it was exceptional! Every single part of both the planning and the day was amazing. The venue, Amy, Rob, the bar team...and the chefs - just WOW! Our guests absolutely loved it. "Best wedding ever attended" was the general feedback. They all felt how we did when we first visited; at home (albeit a more impeccably stylish and elegant home) genuinely welcome, relaxed, comfortable and calm on not just our wedding day but every visit in the run up too. Throughout the whole process, there has not been one jot of stress, Amy has been just delightful, supportive, calm and patient offering advice helping us create a truly perfect day. From the wonderful cosy family meal they created for us on the Friday to the impeccable wedding breakfast, the team at Washingborough truly know what works and nothing is too much trouble. The lovely Rob, (Robert Stubbs) a member of the Washingborough team and incredible florist almost had me in tears with his beautiful flower creations. The place just looked stunning. The Team here just know what they are doing and they looked after myself, my husband our children and every single one of our guests beautifully. Book in your day, trust their advice and the suppliers they work with and you'll have not just an amazing day but a perfect memory for life. We can't thank you all enough and we'll be back again very soon.

Everything exceeded our expectations

By Sophie and Oliver, on 17 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 25 Aug 2018

Where do we start?!?! Everything exceeded our expectations, Amy was incredible from our first meeting right through until after the wedding, putting us at ease constantly with nothing ever too big or small and always quick to respond any time day or night! The amount of compliments we had on the venue, staff and food (food being the best people had ever had at a wedding, EVER) was so pleasing! It was everything we could have ever wanted and it was down to everyone at Washingborough Hall Hotel, we couldn’t recommend you enough, thank you!

Thank you so much for your kind words, such a fabulous wedding day Sophie and Oliver back in August last year. You opted to get married at the church next door (through our own secret gate). The perfect location for any couple choosing a church wedding. As with all of our weddings, you had exclusive use (with use of all 20 bedrooms for the night of your wedding). Thank you again for choosing us to host your beautiful day, such a lovely wedding where your dogs made a guest appearance. We look forward to seeing you both again very soon.

Exquisite service and stunning location
Venue Service

By Claire and Andrew, on 17 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Jul 2018

Amy and her team were completely fabulous from start to finish. They took care of every little detail and nothing was deemed a problem in any way. The service before during and after was built on attention to detail and everything ran perfectly. The food was incredible and the atmosphere was even better. Washingborough Hall is the perfect blend of exquisite service, stunning location and incredible romance.

Amy, Director of Romance at Washingborough Hall responded to this review on 17/10/2019 14:31:55

Thank you for your kind words, such a fabulous wedding day Claire and Andrew back in July of last year. One of the hottest day with a gorgeous horse and carriage to take the bridesmaids and Claire and her Dad through to the church. As with all of our weddings, you had exclusive use (with use of all 20 bedrooms for the night of your wedding). Claire checked in the afternoon before so that she could enjoy getting ready with her bridesmaids - hair and makeup arrived early morning with it being a midday wedding but everything ran to plan. Thank you again for choosing us to host your beautiful day, such a great wedding and we look forward to seeing you both again very soon.
