Set in an outstanding location this historic building with huge rooms and tasteful decor was a real treat for our last night together doing the C2C ride. From drinks on the terrace to dinner in the banqueting room the whole experience was wonderful. 14 of us took over the whole place and this placed a few demands on the staff... More

Horsley Hall provided a perfect setting for our family wedding. The building is beautiful and the hall where the wedding breakfast was held looked stunning with all the decorations and flowers. The owner, Liz gave us a very relaxed personal service and nothing was too much trouble. Because this venue is relatively small compared to the big hotel chains, we... More

Last evening saw 37 ladies on a mystery trip arriving at Horsley Hall. And what a fantastic evening we all had. The setting, the beautiful food (we had a buffet), the attentive staff, altogether made a very memorable evening. Liz and her team did us proud!

We stayed here one night as part of our Coast-2-Coast cycle ride. Staff were very friendly and very helpful Loved the dining room and the food that we had (evening meal and breakfast) was excellent. Great setting as walks around the garden showed.

We had our wedding here. We wish we hadn't. The staff were very rude. The food was terrible, to the point that guests were joking over how long it took to chew the pork! The starters were bad, the mains were bad, and the service was shockingly poor. Everything was very disorganised (and we had a very simple wedding)- we... More

We chose Horsley Hall as the venue to celebrate our Daughter's christening. Everything was exactly as we agreed. Liz was extremely generous and professional throughout the planning and the actual event and she obviously has a vast experience of her trade which helped immensely when discussing menu options, seating arrangements, timings, etc. Nothing was too much trouble, even when we...

Well, we travelled half way across the World to join my Brother & his fantastic Wife on their wedding day. The venue was beautiful, the arrangements made by the happy couple faultless, the wedding service itself was emotional & both families were sublime. Then the fun began! After the service we all sat down for the most enjoyable part of... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at Horsley Hall. We spent three nights and had dinner on two occasions. Derek and Liz were attentive hosts who were knowledgeable about the area. The Hall is in a beautiful setting with lovely facilities and grounds, and offering good food. What more can we say, other than wishing it were not so far... More
