The Priory

by Thomas Espin

The Priory is a former nautical and mathematical academy built in the Regency Gothic style and combines history, great atmosphere, and tranquil grounds. Built in 1812-1818 to the designs of the owner Thomas Espin.

The Priory is a quirky independent hotel and restaurant in the centre of Louth Lincolnshire, often referred to as the ‘Capital of the Wolds’.  Offering a unique dining experience, special but unpretentious food, with relaxed yet attentive service.

Mid 2020, we received Trip Advisor’s ‘Travellers Choice Award’, placing us in the top 10% worldwide, and are honoured to have received this, and numerous other awards over the last two decades.

We absolutely love weddings here at The Priory, we’ve had the great honour of hosting many amazingly special days over the years. The Priory is the ideal venue for a Tipi Wedding or intimate wedding within our hotel’s main restaurant or across 5 spectacular rooms of the house. Teamed with Amy Lauren Weddings, we provide the absolute best wedding coordination for our Serendipity Wedding & Event couples.
