The BEST day of our lives!!!!!!
Howsham Hall is an unbelievable venue. From the first time we drove down the drive way and saw it we were blown away! When we were shown around, we left knowing instantly it was the venue for us! All of the 13 rooms are amazing and unique, with every room having its own little touch. The bridal suite was a level above anything we had ever seen with everyone who stepped foot into the room immediately became mesmerised, and in awe of the greatness. When we reserved our special day, we were introduced to Craig. Craig was always at hand for anything we needed, any question big or small Craig was always happy to help. On our wedding day, Craig and the rest of the Dine team were exceptional. We believe the day would not have went so smoothly if it wasn't for them. We cannot thank all of them enough! The whole wedding went exactly how we imagined, with it going smoothly from when the bride and bridal party arrived the night before, and met Tim the house manager who went above and beyond to make sure everything perfect to when we all left the day after the wedding. Everyone from the day can not stop talking about the breath taking venue. Thank you Craig, Tim, Killian and the rest of the Dine team for making our day so so special.
Response from the venue

The service from Howsham Hall was exceptional!
We just wanted to thank you again for the most amazing weekend of our lives. Please pass our thanks to the team and Will for making both days special. The level of service from yourself was exceptional and as my dad would put it ‘first class’. The attention to detail such as the champagne in our room and the gifts to us were so thoughtful and the timing of everything was great! An extra thank you to Tim and sue who made our arrival a breeze.

We cannot express how amazing this venue is!!
I cannot express how amazing this venue is and how utterly perfect the Dine team are. From start to finish, everything is organised and executed to the utmost perfection. Craig looked after us from the moment we booked all the way through to after our big day. He was fantastic. He directed everyone on the day itself and put our minds totally at ease. The team were so professional and lovely. They made us feel very well looked after as well as all of our guests!! Thank you!
