Full Description
In 1973 Hornsbury Mill was converted and opened to the public as a museum by the Crossman family. In the course of the conversion the Crossmans found several names and dates carved into the beams or pencilled onto the walls and woodwork and these can still be viewed today in some of the hotel bedrooms. Hornsbury Mill is now an established 4* hotel and restaurant providing a beautiful setting for weddings and functions. Careful and sympathetic conversion and refurbishment means that many of the original elements of the old mill remain making it a fascinating venue, full of charm and character.

Perfect wedding day from start to finish
Hornsbury Mill did everything to such a high standard and were perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble for them, including Jane the owner helping dress me and make sure I looked by best. The venue was spotless and the guest bedrooms, and the spacious venue and outdoor space was ideal for social distancing. The food was delicious and the orangery set out with linen tablecloths and napkins and silver candelabra. Highly recommended.

Perfect venue for a perfect day
From the first meeting we knew we were in safe hands with Jane and her team. Their attention to detail and dedication ensured that our wedding day was exactly as we envisioned. On the day itself we were made to feel like ours was the most special occasion they had ever hosted; the atmosphere was relaxed and we had complete confidence that all our needs and those of our guests were catered for - nothing was too much trouble and Jane went above and beyond with specific things we had requested. The venue is perfect, the food was delicious and all of the staff were friendly and helpful, creating the perfect setting for our big day. You could not choose a better place to start your married life.

Our perfect wedding ❤
From start to finish Jane and her amazing team went above and beyond to cater for our every need and help make our day so amazingly perfect in every way. Our guests were blown away with this beautiful venue and just how relaxed they all felt. Jane did our reading for us and Sophie did our entrance and exit music for us... the food was exceptional and plenty for everyone... little touches like extra onion bhajis sent to our bridal suite ( my husband loves them !) Was just one example. Jane and Sophie were on hand right the way through should we need them . Beautiful place, lovely relaxed atmosphere, lovely cheerful friendly staff, lovely rooms.... just lovely everything !! Thankyou to Jane and Sophie for making our day just perfect xxx

Covid Wedding
I know a lot of people were in the same boat as us this year with having to post pone their weddings, we originally planned a March wedding on the 28/04/20 on a special winter deal. Then obviously lock down hit on the 23rd, the venue was so understanding and accommodating throughout it all and even allowed us to continue our March deal on our next chosen date. We had a second attempt at getting married in September 2020 and then finally managed to tie the know on 17/09/21. And not only were the staff amazing, the venue is just beautiful and we were able to have our wedding breakfast in the most stunning conservatory room where we could see out to the lake. I really wish we could relive the day over and over. So would definitely recommend Hornsbury Mill 100%
