An amazing day
We chose The Dower House for our wedding venue, for its lovely grounds, the fabulous willow tree overhanging the pagoda. The wedding coordinator was fantastic, patient and supported us from beginning to the actual wedding day, couldn’t have asked for more. The staff was also lovely, made everyone feel welcome. Food was fantastic and nothing to much trouble for anyone. Wish we could do it all,over again Would highly recommend

The happy day of my life!
at the Dower House. From the initial through to check out after the big day the experience was perfect. Carolyn and her team were brilliant they host weddings week in week out and we’re able to pass on all that knowledge to make sure our day went off without a hitch. Carolyn gently reminded me if I had forgotten any deadlines and kept us on track arranging a hassle free date about a month before to meet and go through all the finer details, to check we knew what was going to happen and that nothing had been forgotten. On the day the managers kept checking in with us throughout with out it feeling obtrusive and let us know if they were ending their shift. Even though they see so many weddings the staffs energy was brilliant and it never felt like just another wedding. The night bar staff especially were great having a little dance behind the bar and keeping the shots flowing. The food was incredible we do enjoy our food and aren’t easily impressed but the meal was great and all our guests were happy. I’m a vegetarian and usually feel like my food is an after thought but I was very happy with my Orzo. The venue it’s self is stunning and a perfect back drop to all the photos. We were allowed to set up the night before as as we had opted to decorate everything ourselves and arrange all the flowers this meant we could take our time and there was no pressure and it looked stunning. We are busy and by using the Dower house meant that everything was arranged and we made little else to do. I stayed the night before and then was allowed to get ready in the amazingly spacious bridal changing room. We got married in the folly, had our reception, dinner and party there, stayed the night along with many of the guests and then met up for breakfast in a private room. Had we had to arrange cars, caters etc it would have meant a lot more stress. Our wedding day was magical and much of this was down to the choice of venue nothing was to much bother and we had the time of our lives. I just wish we could do it all over again it was so much

Beautiful Wedding
We have just got married at the Dower House and loved it. We had the smaller Elopement package with 14 of us in total, including 4 kids under 7 (just one being ours). They made us feel very special and managed the day perfectly in the chilled out nature we wanted. The venue is great so our pictures look amazing with great backdrops. The food was amazing and we were all stuffed. The hotel rooms were amazing, stylish but also comfortable. And Carolyn was super helpful and organised everything putting no stress in us. I would recommend the Dower House for anybodies wedding!!

Perfect and amazing day
From the moment we saw the Dower House we knew it was the perfect venue for an intimate Wedding and within the most stunning setting . We set the date and had 5 months to plan and with the help of Carolyn the wedding co-ordinate who answered all of our questions . Everything from then onwards ran smoothly and on the day we couldn’t have asked for anymore from Carolyn and her team we didn’t have to worry about a thing they were all amazing and so professional . The day was so perfect and all our guests have said what a beautiful venue it was . We truly had the most perfect and amazing Wedding day with memories that are unforgettable .

Amazing day
Kyle and I would just like to send a quick email and say how brilliant and amazing our day went over the weekend; it was literally how we wanted it to go. Your team were so polite, friendly and most of all approachable, nothing was too much trouble and they went out of their way to make our day that extra special. I honestly, cannot thank you and the team enough! I will miss sending you emails about preparing for the wedding but the build-up was exciting.

A wedding that couldn’t have gone any better !
Where do I start, I have just had my wedding at the Dower house hotel, Woodhall spa, Lincolnshire on Saturday 23rd July 2022 and I found this venue just out of chance, by looking around and noticing the great reviews it had received. I had visited several wedding venues prior to this one, but I must say, I had chosen the perfect venue out of them all! Firstly, Carolyn who was the wedding planner was absolutely amazing, she shown me around the venue and made me feel so relaxed on that very first day! The venue itself was so clean, spacious and so peaceful. It was everything I wanted in a venue. The garden was full of beautiful flowers and very much well kept. I instantly knew on that day, that the venue was for me. The staff were so welcoming and it was just out of chance that they had a Saturday available in July waiting for me to book. Carolyn, just kept in contact throughout the planning of my wedding and made sure that I wasn’t taking to much on- she took all of the supplies details and was happy to contact them to arrange times etc.. what a massive help. My husband and I always wanted to get married outside and that was the reason behind getting married in summer. This wasn’t an issue and the staff at the dower house made this happen (they even had plan B if it rained) After the ceremony, we all went inside to the well present decor in the main hall and we were greeted by waiters who made sure we all felt comfortable. The food consisted of a three course meal and they did not disappoint, even now the guest mention, how well present and delicious it was (I would recommend the Lamb). All of the waiters were amazing,but one waiter that went above and beyond was Ethan, nothing was too much trouble for him and he even got my youngest child a bottle of warm milk to help get him to sleep, just them little things help so much. I surprised my guests with singing waiters and they were the highlight of the evening. What a show they gave me and my guests, look them up, they won’t disappoint. After dancing away all night and saying thank you to all the guests, I finally got back to our honeymoon suite which was situated in the lovely out house across the garden. The room was so luxurious and we were even greeted by a bottle of champagne from the staff at the dower house congratulating us on our special day. From getting ready with my braid-maids to getting in to our honeymoon suite, I must say that I has the best wedding you could imagine. All I would like to say, the Dower house made that one special day in my life that extra special and if I had the funds to do it all again,I would definitely do so! You were amazing, thanks so much!!!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Having only joined the Dower House in August 2020, there's not many to pick from, but being able to move a couple's wedding from the 7th November to the 4th to squeeze it in before lockdown was fantastic for me, especially as it was my birthday on the 5th, so it was lovely to know we made that couple's special day able to go ahead with less than a week's notice of the change!!
