A wonderful day in a wonderful location
Rachel and I loved Abbey Farm. It is a wonderful location to get married, away from the hustle and bustle of citys where you can be with your friends and family for an enjoyable day and night. Alot of work has been completed in the past 18 months from when we first viewed the venue to actually having our ceremony in August 2021 and it has all been done to a high standard. Jo and Will are friendly and helpful and we can't recommend it highly enough as a venue to choose.

The Best Day of Our Lives
We had the absolute best day of our lives 07/08/2021 at Abbey Farm for our wedding! Not only was the day absolute perfect but Jo at the venue has been amazing throughout the whole process. From having to postpone 12 months due to covid, Jo was able to organise the perfect day for us 12 months later (despite being so busy) and made it so much less stressful than it might have otherwise been. The venue itself is stunning and extremely well maintained. We had everything we needed and our guests haven't stopped talking about how beautiful it was The bar staff at the venue were also absolutely fantastic. They were so polite and couldn't do enough for us- serving drinks, tidying up and I didn't see any of them stop all day! Overall we had a fantastic experience and can't recommend Abbey Farm enough. Thank you again to Jo and her wonderful team- you made our day!

An incredible wedding venue
Abbey Farm was the perfect wedding venue for us. Situated in the Lincolnshire countryside, it is the perfect venue if you are looking for a rustic wedding. Jo and her team were fabulous from when we made our initial enquiries right up until the morning after the wedding. Nothing was too much to ask and they were so supportive with the many changes the pandemic threw at us! Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day so perfect! Highly recommend!

Beautiful day
We had a wonderful day and build up to our wedding! We were able to make the venue completely our own decorating it the day beforehand, bringing in all sorts of decor etc. to which Jo and the team were very accommodating! Thankfully we had beautiful weather, meaning we were able to make full use of the gardens and outdoor games. We were also able to walk back from the church to the venue, and made use of the venues tractor and trailer to take guests who wished to walk back across to the church. The bar staff were lovely and friendly. We couldn't have wished for anymore!

Amazing Venue, 100% recommend!
We've had to rearrange our wedding for the third time and Jo at Abbey Farm has just been absolutely amazing! I honestly can not recommend Abbey Farm enough to anyone! Jo has spend so much time with us during COVID checking that we are happy, if there is anything she can do to help and also having the time to rearrange us, not once, but twice! On the initial visits Jo was ever so welcoming and it's a must visit for anyone booking a wedding in Lincolnshire! I can not wait to have our reception at Abbey Farm!
