A country house hotel

Washingborough Hall

Welcome to our beautiful Grade II listed, Georgian Manor House hotel. Set in three acres of mature gardens and woodland, in the pretty heart of Washingborough village. We are just a little over 2 miles east of the centre of the historic City of Lincoln.

Originally built around 1750, Washingborough Hall Hotel, Lincoln is privately owned and managed. Since 2008 great care has been taken to retain the elegant Georgian character, whilst lovingly refurbishing the country house hotel.

Please note: We are currently open weekly from Wednesday at 12 noon until Sunday at 5pm, for dining, afternoon tea, overnight stays, and Sunday lunches.
