We were absolutely ecstatic and elated when Caroline announced we had won the award! Our team have worked so hard, since our launch, only three years ago, to make Bawtry Hall, the most prestigious and beautiful wedding venue in the UK. It really is a wonderful venue with an amazing history, that must be seen to be believed”
