Logistics & Information
We’re very much looking forward to welcoming all wedding guests to Holywell Hall and we want nothing more than for your whole experience with us to be relaxed and enjoyable. To assist with your personal plans, we’ve put together the following information that might be of use. Of course, if there’s anything else you need, please do contact us.
Given our location and the celebratory atmosphere at weddings, we recommend booking your taxi for the end of the evening in advance. For your information, all guests are required to depart by 1am unless your hosts have expressly mentioned otherwise.
Local taxi companies that we recommend are:
Starline Taxis: 01780 484848
Ace Cabs: 01780 767676
ABC Taxis: 01780 252525
Due to the age of the main gates, vehicles over a certain size, and especially coaches, can only gain access via the non-gated entrance.
Holywell Hall has parking on the estate for up to 45 cars. If you’re driving to us and then departing by taxi at the end of the evening, you’re invited to leave your car with us overnight and collect it the following day.
We like to think that Holywell Hall gives you a chance to escape from the everyday and switch off for a while. However, we also know that even when you’re relaxing, WIFI can still be essential. We’re therefore pleased to offer WIFI to all our guests – please ask for details.
Holywell Hall is situated in a truly glorious part of the country. With Stamford, Rutland, Oakham and Uppingham nearby, why not stay a while and see what the area has to offer?

Harriet and Christopher
"We knew within minutes of arriving that Holywell Hall was the only venue for us as it ticked all of the boxes we’d been looking for. We felt like we were wandering through the set of a romantic period drama, as we looked around the beautiful grounds and absolutely LOVED the lake view, wild flower meadow, gorgeous walled gardens and all of the intriguing outbuildings filled with such charm and character. Being able to hold both our ceremony and reception on-site was a huge positive and the privacy of the setting was just right. We were completely overwhelmed by the quality, variety and high standard of local suppliers – we honestly couldn’t have wished for a better team. Our friends all have lovely stories and pictures of their own from the day, when they took the opportunity to stroll the gardens and meadows themselves, with a glass of champagne in hand of course!"

"Holywell Hall has been a really exciting adventure for me as a curator. We've been working alongside the owners getting them ready to launch as a stunning Country House Wedding Venue and I think you're going to love it. The estate is truly beautiful and will take your breath away. The owners are passionate about their home and are really excited to welcome you. The options for your wedding are endless and with Katrina Otter Weddings assisting with the planning, then you really are in very good hands. This venue has a big personal tick and if you do choose Holywell then I hope you have the most wonderful day celebrating your love."

"I first visited Holywell Hall in 2015 and the emotions that I first felt of pure excitement and awe as I drove through the main gates, past the lakes and up to the house itself are the same emotions that I still feel today and each and every time that I visit. Holywell Hall is an undeniably beautiful and uniquely charming venue full of possibilities and quite frankly, one of the most spectacular places in Britain to say your vows. If I wasn’t married already then I would choose Holywell Hall as my wedding venue in a heartbeat."
