The staff at the farmhouse hotel were very attentive during our wedding reception. Everything ran very smoothly. Would strongly recommend the farmhouse as a venue to hold your wedding reception! Such a lovely memorable day.

We got married at the farmhouse on 31/01/15. From the initial look around until the big day, Shelley, Emma and the rest of the team were absolutely fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and everything that we wanted we had. The day was absolutely amazing, it just went by too fast! We can not recommend them more, everyone who came... More

I've given this review some thought as I want to reflect just how fantastic my wedding was with the overall experience of the event. As said my April wedding was fabulous and enjoyed by us all, the venue is very special and definately gave us the wow factor, we did spend a lot of time decorating it and the venue... More

AMAZING! Not a single complaint to make. Our wedding events planners were well experienced meaning our wedding went smoothly and they were so lovely and relaxed which was the atmosphere we were after. The venue itself is quirky and beautiful with so much history and the food amazing. To this day friends and family still comment about the good quality... More

This is the most beautiful hotel! We had an amazing wedding day there! The staff are so personal and make you feel so so special. The threshing barn is just magical and the hotel rooms are all uniquely styled in keeping with the age and style of the hotel. The surrounding countryside is absolutely gorgeous! Perfect place for a romantic... More

Our daughter's wedding day - 11th April. Following the ceremony at nearby Breedon-on-the-Hill, the reception through to evening 'bash' was here at Donington Park. And it was wonderful. The 'pigsty' room for the reception gathering and meal was perfect; no guests were lost on large round tables miles from the action - this is a delightfully intimate setting. No log-jam... More

We stayed at this hotel for a family wedding. We enjoyed the wedding and thought the food etc was very good. Our room was very large with a large seating area. It was very clean with lovely white sheets and towels. The room and the main part of the hotel has obviously been recently decorated to a very high standard.... More

Popped in just for a night whilst on a long trip. On arrival the service was brilliant with friendly and helpful staff. Great location and easy to find as it is well sign posted. Beautiful rooms, excellent food and a lovely bar (sitting in front of a roaring fire as I write this). I was happily surprised to find how... More
