Full Description
We’ve been hosting Weddings and Parties in our charming eighteenth-century Barns since 1984 and we’d like to think we’ve created a lot of happy memories. Our must-see venue is an authentic barn, with a choice of stunning spaces for your ceremony, original pig sites for the meal and a stunning 300 year old Threshing Barn to party in 'til late. The Barn leads directly onto a private outdoor courtyard; a sun-trap perfect for canapes, drink receptions and festoon-lit dancing. You have exclusive-use of all the Barn's indoor and outdoor spaces, plus the full run of the estate for photographs, including our fields, woodland and old farm outbuildings. Our amazing kitchen caters for all of our events in-house. Our chefs are famous for their BBQs, carveries, indulgent buffets, cakes of cheese and serious tasty hog roasts. The picturesque site is located between the market towns of Melbourne and Castle Donington.

Thank you so much for making our day
Finally getting round to writing a review on what was an amazing Wedding at Donington Park Farmhouse on 20th February 2020! We managed to dodge the storms and coronavirus for a special day and we couldn’t fault any part of the venue, including the amazing food, drink and fabulous organisation by Kayleigh! We have had so many compliments on everything and we agree with every single one of them. Thank you so much for making our day ❤️

Beautiful and atmospheric
Myself and my wife got married at Donington yesterday. I could not say enough how brilliant this is as a wedding venue. The barns are so beautiful and atmospheric but what really makes the venue is the staff. They are a fabulous bunch who enable the day to run so smoothly with small personal touches as they go. Special mention to Jo who made sure we were all where we were meant to be and helped make our day the success it was 💕

FAQ

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Authentic, Original, Industrial, Relaxed, Rural

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

The view from the field in-front of the Farmhouse, towards Breedon-on-the-Hill is stunning

What’s your favourite canapé?

Chorizo & Stilton Toasts! Closely followed by Mini Yorksire Puds with Beef. Yum!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Our incredible cheeseboards. Visually stunning and go down a storm!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The Pig Sties, our formal dining room. It's one of a kind, an incredible talking point. (And full of natural light!)

What part of your business are you most proud of?

As a family, we're seriously committed to the environment. We have tonnes of solar panels (mostly out of sight!), a carbon-neutral heating system, reed bed sewage treatment (away from the site of course!) and try to buy locally, including from our own farm and deer park.
