My niece had her wedding reception at this lovely place, although we have past it many times on way to airport it is the first time we have been in. The inside is very nicely decorated and in keeping with its original theme, we even had the meal in a modified pig stay, which couldn't have been nicer. I thought... More

We were mightily impressed with the venue after visiting for a friend's wedding last year. The staff were very friendly and attentive and made the day run very smoothly. We particularly liked the wedding "cake" made of cheese and the band with the fella with the washboard. Amazing fun with quality booze and food a plenty. I'd highly recommend here... More

Dear Steph, thank you for leaving a review! We've done a few cakes of cheese over the years, but I think that was one of my favourites, and 'Lil' Jim's Big Squeeze' are always brilliant fun! We hope to see you all again soon. Best Wishes, Emma More

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

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
