We had our wedding in the tepees on 2nd September.

It’s an absolutely stunning venue. All our guests talked about  how different it was and how relaxed they felt. The hog roast was amazing and the service we received from Chris and his team was first class. The accommodation was lovely. We had lots of guests who traveled so stayed over and were really impressed with the size of their rooms. 

Breakfast was fab. Its one of our favorite  places to eat any time of year. The food is amazing. Thanks to all at the Pyewipe for making our day very special.

We got married at the beginning of February 2018 and had an afternoon reception at the tipis at the Pyewipe. Without a shadow of a doubt using the Pyewipe for our reception was one of the best decisions we have ever made. Having looked at pretty much all the wedding venues in Lincolnshire we knew immediately when we set eyes inside the tipis that it was the only place we wanted to spend out wedding day. The tipis when lit up at night blow every other venue in Lincoln out of the water! It was so cosy inside, and all our guests commented on how amazing the venue was. The fire was on when we arrived for our reception with all the fairy lights and bunting creating a wonderful Nordic winter style theme. Chris the wedding organiser at the Pyewipe was phenomenal – given that we had a limited budget, some very specific ideas and only two months to plan a wedding – he went above and beyond in catering for our wedding party. He was so professional from start to finish and gave us the best wedding we could ever have dreamed of. There is one review on Trip Advisor which comments on how cold the tipis were at one event – i can verify there was NO PROBLEM WITH THE HEATING for us! It was so cosy and warm at one point we actually asked for one of the heaters to be turned down because it was too warm. The hog roast was great and there was a brilliant DJ who set the mood and kept the party flowing til late. If you are getting married in Lincoln use the Pyewipe i promise you wont regret it! Another special shout out to all the staff in the restaurant and the management team who kindly catered for 20 loud Mancunians the Friday night before the wedding when our dinner reservation fell through – the food was phenomenal and we cant thank you enough for housing everyone out of the blue!

Hi Chris,

Myself and Dave would just like to thank you and all of the staff at the Pyewipe for our wedding yesterday. It was absolutely perfect. The food was incredible as was the service from all of the staff. There is not a single thing that I would want different if I was to re-live the day. A huge thank you. 

Kindest regards,

My husband and I were privileged to hold our wedding reception here on the 1st July. We can not recommend this venue enough! Staff are amazing and the tipis are just out of this world! We had the most perfect day and thank every single person that made our day so special! If you are looking for a wedding reception then look no further!

I just wanted to let you know what a lovely weekend we had at the Pyewipe. It was my son’s wedding yesterday and I can truly say that we had a great experience it was – only over too quickly.

The setting is fantastic and the tipis are a great wedding venue.

We stayed in the lodge for two nights – very comfortable and clean accommodation and so convenient for our family and friends who had travelled to be there.

We also had a family meal together on the Friday evening and the food was superb. Very impressed with the service – all meals arrived together – for a party of 18 this was impressive. The staff are a credit to the Inn.

All in all a great weekend and we will definitely visit again soon.

Private area with own bar, toilets and carpark The organisation was excellent everything was on time. The food was beautiful and all the staff were polite and helpful. Certainly can recommend.


Adams Family Wedding – 6 October 2018

Highly recommended after Chris and the team looked after us superbly on the weekend of the 6 October 2018 for my son Daniel and our daughter in law, Kimberley’s wedding. From setting up on the Friday and providing us with everything we needed, including those requested at the last minute lol we had a wonderful time. The venue itself lends itself to a wedding or any other celebration. The staff worked tirelessly to ensure that our every needs were met and they did this with a smile all of the time. The accommodation and the facilities in the hotel are excellent, clean and very comfortable and it is well situated for either a quiet walk along the canal into Lincoln or a short drive with very good access. The food at the wedding breakfast and the Hog Roast in the evening were of a very high standard and everything was served beautifully. we will be visiting again xx



I’d just like to thank Chris, Ben, and other members of the Pyewipe staff who helped make our wedding day on Sat 13 July 19 a fantastic occasion. Your welcome, assistance and advice throughout the whole process was greatly appreciated and your hard work on the day presenting the Tipis and food was perfect. Thank you ever so much for making our special day so memorable. We’re extremely grateful and would recommend the Tipis as a fantastic venue for weddings, parties etc. Kev & Sarah.


Good evening Chris

I wanted to thank you and all the staff involved for a wonderful reception – everyone worked so hard.   The food, service and the venue could not be faulted.  It was the ideal venue for Rob and Maria – the weather was a disappointment but even that could not distract from a perfect day.  The rooms at The Lodge were very comfortable and breakfast very enjoyable.  It was a truly magical day and one that will not be forgotten in a hurry.

Many thanks

Kind regards

Karen Wells


Chris and his team at the Pyewipe are amazing. We chose the venue after being let down at short notice by another venue, and we are so pleased we did. Every detail for our wedding was not too much trouble, the food was outstanding, the staff were very friendly. The rooms at the Lodge were great value for money. Chris was great at giving us advice on what would work and putting together a bespoke package, would highly recommend to anyone.

Dear Chris & the rest of the team,
We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for making our wedding day so magical and faultless, everything from beginning to end was so wonderful, the food was delicious and it seemed that you couldn’t do enough to make our guests feel welcome. 
A huge thank you again!
Love Sophie & Tom
