Full Description
With breath-taking vistas across the golf course, the lakes and beyond and our experienced Wedding Coordinators taking care of your every need, you’re free to simply enjoy the day and create memories which you’ll cherish forever. The beauty of our Essex wedding venue is in the unrivalled opportunities to create just what you need. From intimate rooms seating just a handful of special guests to sprawling suites with private bars and dance floors, we really can accommodate everything. No other wedding venues Essex has to offer have access to a 2,000 person capacity area, so no matter how big or small your wedding dreams, we’ll be your fairy Godmother every time. With onsite Spa and leisure facilities, two 18 hole golf courses and 194 bedrooms to accommodate your guests, you can trust Five Lakes to put together the perfect wedding package for your needs. Despite our hotel nestling in over 320 acres of glorious Essex countryside, we’re still easy to get to from London and other major UK cities, so all your friends and family can get together with ease.
