Built-in 1595, the stunning Elizabethan Hall has never been sold. It’s a muchloved family home surrounded by spectacular grounds. For many, the Gardens at Doddington are just as spectacular as the Hall. The estate is situated just six miles west of Lincoln on the B1190 and is easily accessible by road. Or just a short taxi ride via train from Lincoln or Newark stations. The team takes great pride in their personal attention and professional approach to special events. They can build fantastic weekend packages (two days if you have a weekday wedding) to include stylish, homely and comfortable accommodations. A Doddington wedding is not just about the day itself; it offers lovebirds the chance to spend time with their family and friends over several days in a beautiful setting. The property offers three wedding locations for ceremonies: The Long Gallery (200 guests), The Garden Room in the Coach House (75), as well as charming and completely private Coach House Walled Garden (75). The refurbished Coach House is just yards from the Hall and creates a versatile wedding location. Light, airy, fresh and modern but with a stunning Elizabethan exterior, the space is private and comfortable. It can accommodate up to 120 guests for formal dining, rising to 150 for evening receptions. The venue fee includes access to the Coach House the day before weddings to help personalise the venue. Plus, pairs will have complete exclusivity of the space on their wedding day. The team will provide all the cutlery, crockery, glassware, linens, staffing and a bar.
