Full Description
The Villa is a 4 Star Country House Hotel located in the quaint village of Wrea Green, in between the cultural towns of Blackpool and Preston. Situated just off the M55, we are the ideal choice for travelling delegates and families. Originally a 19th century gentleman’s residence, The Villa’s historic charm and tasteful architecture has been successfully maintained throughout the years. The quirky appeal and stunning location is what draws guests in daily. Throughout the sixties, The Villa was a restaurant turned hotel with 25 bedrooms. Nowadays, the hotel has 31 luxurious, recently refurbished bedrooms which include twin, double, family, suite and state rooms. Throughout the working week, these rooms are occupied by travelling delegates who require anything from a night’s stay to a week’s stay. Whether their business be at The Villa itself or surrounding areas, we’re often praised for the services we supply for our corporate guests. Weekends are bursting with weddings and events such as birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, christenings and much more. Guests are instantly blown away by the stunning grounds, remarkable charm and fantastic function facilities. So much so, many events come from those who have previously visited The Villa for a wedding, birthday party or other celebration. For over a decade The Villa has been making dream weddings come true. When you hold your wedding day at The Villa the world is literally your oyster! We often explain to our brides and grooms that The Villa is a blank canvas and is theirs to decorate in a way that they’ve always wanted. We can provide any style of wedding including a traditional three course dinner, a buffet for 100 people, a BBQ for 50 people or even an Asian wedding. We highly value our customer feedback as this is what enables us to maintain and improve on the service we provide.

Our day couldn’t have been so perfect!
Since I was a little girl I’ve always dreamt of getting married at the Villa and the staff especially Kathryn our wedding planner made that dream a reality. The venue is truly stunning and we were lucky enough to have the sun shining down on us so we could get pictures in the grounds. The villa will always be a special place for us. Everything about the whole process was great and our day was AMAZING! We’re just sad it’s over!

Brilliant organisation from the wedding planner
Fantastic venue, very amenable to all requests and excellent pre planning. Ultimately our wedding was made so perfect as a result of Kathryn the wedding coordinator at the villa.

Mixed bag
The villa was very helpful in the run up to our wedding, although they were hard to contact outside of our arranged meetings. This eventually became hard work! On the day, they did a superb job and the venue is beautiful. The staff were polite, friendly and professional, all of our guests enjoyed their service and efficiency. We were catered for very well and everything was great! However at the end of the day, they lost our wedding certificate. We have since bought copies ourselves, but will never have the original that we signed. This is a great shame and we were hoping for some kind of discussion or gesture of apology, but only received a brief email to this effect. To summarise, I would definitely look forward to attending a wedding here again as it was really lovely, I would recommend them to couples too. I would definitely recommend couples be forward and persistent when trying to contact the venue, and would 100% suggest not leaving the wedding certificate with the host for any amount of time!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

When the possibility of hold a triple wedding at The Villa was requested, Lancashire Registration Service were delighted to work closely with the couple and the venue to able to arrange and fully support the ceremony. No-one within Lancashire Registration Service can ever taking a triple wedding ceremony before in Lancashire and therefore it would be a groundbreaking ceremony. The Villa Wedding Team and registrars ensured that the arrangements for the ceremony meticulously planned and everything went as expected and the day ran smoothly with no hitches.

Start early, there is a lot to arrange so give yourself plenty of time and if that's not possible don't be afraid to ask for help. The Villa wedding Team is always on hand to lend any support needed.
