There is more to The Priest House than just our stunning surroundings

Perched on the banks of the River Trent, it is hard to imagine a more beautiful venue to hold your wedding. Set in its own 42 acres of woodland, meadows, gardens and watermills, our 4* country house hotel is located at the end of a secluded driveway. Combine this with our unique, contemporary style, fine dining, and impeccable service, and you have the ultimate venue for your big day.

Located close to principle roads surrounding the East Midlands, The Priest House is a small gem in a beautiful setting.

Every wedding is uniquely special, and we want your day to be as perfect as you do. With this in mind, our team of dedicated coordinators will help take care of all your arrangements to make the whole process seamless, so that the only 'hitch' is the one you have planned.

  • Mr & Mrs Clare

    Hello to you all, Just wanted to say a few thank you's for being the perfect venue and hosts for our wedding last Saturday 25th June - It was beyond perfect! A huge thank you to Helen for being our wedding co-ordinating throughout all the planning in the months leading up to our wedding. You have been nothing but helpful and made me feel at ease during all the decision making. You were very professional and made sure everything was just right and exactly how we wanted it to be. Thank you to Emily for taking over organisation from Helen, and finalising plans right down to the very last detail. Michelle, you were there on our special day and I think you'll agree it was amazing. Everything ran so smoothly and fell into place so well. I felt at ease all day and didn't need to panic as I knew I had you there! You went above and beyond to make sure all the decorations were in place, and despite the on and off rain, the Priest House looked stunning. Dan S, you were also fantastic on the day. Acting as toast master and looking after all our guests, everyone had nothing but good things to say about you. You were very friendly and ensured we had everything we needed. Also a big thank you to Dan, who had been on hand at the reception/front desk from the moment we arrived on Friday evening. You were extremely helpful with storing all of our wedding decorations and booked us a table in he restaurant for our convenience. You made sure we had everything we needed and were very accommodating to all our guests. Extremely helpful and professional. The Priest House was our perfect venue and it was made even more special by the kind, friendly and attentive staff who were there throughout our stay. If you could please pass on our thanks to all the staff mentioned above (as I only had a few emails) and to everyone else working we would be very grateful. We had one of the best days of our life. Many thanks, Amy & Will 'The new Mr & Mrs Clare'

    Helen & Laura, We just wanted to send along our deepest thanks for the fantastic role that you and your whole staff played in making our wedding day so special and beautiful. From the tastings, helping us with so many decisions throughout the process, to the great job hosting on the day, you all worked so hard at making our celebration a memorable one. Despite planning a wedding from over seas, you made the process so smooth and easy. Thank you from the both of us, our family & friends, and all of our guests who comment on how much fun they had and on how beautiful the venue is. We will gladly recommend you in the future! Thanks for the memories, Julie & Neil Adcock ( & our dog Abigail ! )
