One of the best loved Hotels in Lincolnshire
Enjoying a timelessly elegant setting and unique heritage, the Petwood is one of the most memorable places to stay in Lincolnshire. Once home to the famous Dambusters, and surrounded by acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, it is also steeped in British history. Join us for award-winning food, afternoon tea, or one of our weddings and special events. Explore the charming village of Woodhall Spa or stroll our spectacular landscaped gardens. Whatever the occasion, the Petwood Hotel is among the most memorable places to visit, dine or stay in the heart of “Bomber County”, Lincolnshire.
Atmospheric Place What a beautiful, atmospheric place. The room was huge, clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Food and drink excellent. Can't wait to return.
Great Location I would recommend this hotel to anyone, great location and lovely grounds.
Wonderful Ambiance Evening meals and breakfast delicious and a wonderful ambiance about the place. We will certainly return.
Fantastic Staff The staff were fantastic, helpful, polite and couldn't do enough for you. The rooms were spacious and you didn't feel cramped. The food was exquisite, tasty, well cooked, imaginative and something to look forward to each mealtime. The building was lovely to look at in its Tudor style.I cannot praise Petwood Hotel enough.
Afternoon Tea My wife had a gift voucher for afternoon tea, from my Son’s girlfriend for her last birthday. We went to use it this Saturday and had our afternoon tea outside with our dog, Muffin. The food and service was superb, only topped by the stunning venue. The selection was spot on and each ‘course’ was fresh and tasty.
Perfect wedding stay We chose The Petwood for our wedding, with 30 guests. The event was a great success. We found staff well organised and very efficient, and they gave us exceptional, friendly and personal service and support, thinking of everything. If anything was needed on the day, they responded quickly.
Lunch was great We popped in for lunch and to have a look round to see the officers mess for 617 Dambusters Squadron. We were made very welcome - the Lincolnshire Sausages were fantastic. The place has been kept as is and the 40's feel is very evident. You must visit the Squadron Bar. It's now a shrine to the Dambusters and very interesting. Must go back and stay sometime.
A truly magical Wedding We were extremely proud to choose the Petwood as our wedding venue. We couldn't have chosen a more special place. We chose the Petwood not only because of our family history, but also because of the calmness and professionalism of the establishment. The whole weekend ran so smoothly which made myself and my new husband so calm before the event. All staff were absolutely fabulous, a special mention to Janet, who made the whole process from start to finish seamless
Wedding Our wedding went perfectly and without a hitch, and I know it was down to Janet and the team working away in the background. My sister even wants Janet for her wedding (and she isn't even engaged yet). So thank you so much to the team for all the time and effort put in!
Wedding Venue Excellence I was fortunate to spend the day and night at this excellent hotel due to my daughter choosing it as her wedding venue. The service that the wedding party received was second to none. All of the staff went out of their way to make it a beautiful and very memorable occasion. The staff were friendly and helpful. The wedding meal and buffet was delicious.
Good food, helpful staff I organised a walking break for a group of friends in October 2017. Jackie was very helpful with all the arrangements ie rooms, dining , etc.. Food was excellent. Grounds extensive and Woodhall Spa is probably the best place to stay in the South Wolds area.
Fab Sunday lunch Booked a table for Father’s Day Sunday lunch. Food was fabulous- delicious as always. Quality dining experience. Great place for couples, families or celebrations. 3courses and coffee. They cater for gluten free.
We couldn’t have wished for a better day We have just had our Wedding at the Petwood Hotel and what an amazing day. We have had so many compliments about the event, we have to share them with everyone here. From the day we booked it, we had total confidence in Janet and her team, and she certainly came through for us. Every little detail was remembered, everything we wanted was done, in an efficient, professional, yet friendly manner.
Petwood Garden memoriesThomas Burkitt was born in January 1892 in Calcethorpe, a small hamlet 5 miles outside of Louth, Lincolnshire to Thomas Burkitt senior, a Farm Labourer. Young Thomas didn’t appear to want to work in the fields as his father had done and by the time of the 1911 census at the age of 19, he was working at Petwood as a Gardener alongside his brother Harry aged 25. The brothers would have been working...
In times of trouble...In times such as these it is very easy to get despondent about the situation we all find ourselves in but, here at the Petwood we believe that there are still things we can all look forward to and enjoy. We know that we have all been asked to make sure we take part in the current social isolation guidelines and it goes without saying that we all need to do whatever we can to keep ourselves and the...
