    Absolutely fantastic holi event held there with food stall, live music and of course plastering everyone with coloured powder provided by them. Will definitely go next year if they have it there

    My wife and I recently celebrated our wedding at The Willows, and it was nothing short of extraordinary! From the moment we arrived until the very end, the staff went above and beyond to ensure every detail was perfect. Our guests had an absolutely fantastic time, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you, Willows, for making our special day truly unforgettable!

    Amazing place surrounded by lush green fields, beautiful facility with spacious halls and massive parking area. This is ideal for any event may it be a wedding or birthday party, sport event or just a social gathering, you wont be disappointed.

    I went for an event and the event was great. However I am disappointed in the staff by the gate. There was no parking so myself and a few guests parked on the street. These gate staff watched a ticket inspector issue us tickets of 65 pounds and they watched. They didn't even have it in them to have the MC of the event announce the presence of the ticket inspector or notify us prior to parking. Not expecting them to take on responsibility but some kind of kindness would have been helpful. I was disgusted that honestly didn't say much to them but felt they could have been a bit more human. Honestly its like people just don't care anymore and it is reflected in the staffs behaviour. You literally watch people get charged and do nothing when you clearly didn't provide sufficient parking or advice on alternative parking. I will honestly advice people to not use this venue. They only want your money and will never look out for you or your guests.
