On our first viewing at three lakes we instantly felt comfortable and positive, there was no up-sell and Ella instantly understood what was important to us. During the build up there was no stress, everything run smoothly and our wedding day was made special by all the staff. Compliments have been made by all our guests about how relaxing & well organised our day was. This is a beautiful venue and the staff cannot do enough for you, we had a few last minute changes due to unforeseen circumstances but they totally adapted and we will forever be grateful for all they done. Thank you!

Mathilda and Fabio 21.1.17
We got Married at Three Lakes on 16th July 2016 and had the most fantastic day. From start to finish everything ran like clockwork thanks to Ella and the team.
I went in the night before to decorate the hall and left small instructions for the morning and everything was perfect when I arrived. We had the BBQ for the meal which was amazing. Plenty of food for everyone and also changed a few dishes to accommodate children. Nothing was too much trouble. The scenery was unbelievable and I could not of wished for a better day.
I would highly recommend three lakes to anybody and would do it all again in a heartbeat given the chance.
Five stars all from us.
Gemma and Chris 16.7.16
From the first meeting to the evening itself was a fabulous experience. Everybody was so helpful and accommodating.
The first impression for our evening function was amazing. The décor, attention to detail, table layout, music and food was again fabulous! A wonderful evening.

Dear Ella and Co
We are writing to thank you for hosting our 50th wedding-anniversary event in the Arched Barn on Sunday 21st August 2016.
We had told you beforehand that the food at a previous event we’d held elsewhere had left much to be desired; so we were naturally anxious. However, our fears were totally unwarranted as the food produced by your chef was excellent. The portions, the presentation and the service were 5-star, the Arched Barn looked wonderful and all our guests were extremely impressed; all of which contributed to a wonderful evening. If only you could have controlled the weather it would have more than perfect, but we didn’t let a bit of wind and rain spoil our evening!
It was excellent value-for-money and your attention to detail was much appreciated. Even after we had to abandon our main course to attend to one of our guests who was unwell, one of your servers asked if we would like a fresh hot meal – that was really first class service. To summarise, we could not fault it. Please thank all concerned.
Judy and Ivor – Wedding Anniversary 21.8.16
We got married here on the 26th august 2016, it is a beautiful venue with the most amazing views for photographs all our guests commented how beautiful it was.
Thank you so much to Ella who was amazing from when we booked up until the end of the wedding day. All staff polite and very helpful we had an amazing day and all went smoothly would highly recommend this venue.
Sophie and Luke Webb 26.8.16
We are so happy to have been able to have our wedding at Three Lakes. Ella made the planning such a breeze and was so lovely to deal with. There was no problem or question too hard for them to answer and every request we had was granted.
The venue is a gorgeous blank canvas to make your own and all our guests commented on what a beautiful place it was.
Lastly, the staff are just brilliant. The chef Mark and his team created such a lovely menu for us, the food was amazing, all our guests loved it. The waiting and bar staff were brilliant, quick and always on hand whenever needed.
This is such a brilliant venue for a wedding, we wish we could do it all over again.
Thank you Three Lakes!
Natalie & Richie Firth 23.04.16
A massive thank you to Ella and her team, she did an outstanding job and nothing was too much trouble, we visited the venue a number of times leading up to the wedding as we don’t live nearby and everyone was so accommodating. Our day was so special and it will be one we both will never forget, we were lucky to have nice weather and all of our guests were amazed by the view. The food was outstanding, our guests still talk about it two months on. We both had a perfect day. Thank you to The Three Lakes for helping it be so special
Faye and David Reynolds 19.9.15
We got married at Three Lakes on 24th July 2015 after attending two family weddings there. From when we visited the venue for the first time to the day of our wedding everything went without a hitch. Maxine and Ella were so helpful yet calm at the same time so it never once felt stressful and nothing was too much to ask.
The day we got married was actually the wettest day of the year so it could have ended up being a disaster but it didn’t affect our day at all everything went completely smoothly and every one at Three Lakes just got on with the day
One of the best things about Three Lakes is the bar/dancefloor and where everyone sits down for the wedding breakfast is all in the same room so guests do not get split up. This was something a lot of people said they liked about the venue there was no way of getting lost from people as everything was in one room so everyone was mixing together all day- this also meant that the dancefloor was completely packed all night which is what we wanted!
The food is absolutely delicious which again the majority of our guests commented on and also the team at Three Lakes are so helpful but easy going at the same time so you don’t feel stressed you just know everything is taken care off without there being a big deal about anything.
I would 100% recommend Three Lakes for your wedding venue it is the perfect place to get married in Hertfordshire we didn’t have our ceremony here just the reception but just for the reception or the whole thing you cannot go wrong- I have absolutely no complaints whatsoever the team are amazing and I hope to go to another wedding here soon!
Hayley & Matt 24.7.15
Just want to say a big thank you to everyone at the Three Lakes for making our day so special and we are so lucky to have such a brilliant day!
Antonella & Craig 8.8.15
We got married at Three Lakes at the end of May this year and it was fabulous! Unfortunately we couldn’t get married outside, thanks to the great British weather, but it didn’t matter. Apart from the weather, the day went without a hitch. Maxine was great. We had full confidence in her knowledge and expertise and she made everything clear. We were a little bit worried when she announced she would be leaving two months before our wedding to go travelling but we needn’t have worried. Ella and the team did a grand job in the weeks leading up to our wedding and on the day. We cannot fault the service received. It was especially lovely to see Maxine back just in time to help out on our big day! We highly recommend Three Lakes – the Arched Barn is decorated beautifully, the views are stunning (we did get photos outside in the sunshine!), the staff are great, the food is delicious (guests sent compliments to the chef!) and the resident DJ gave us a proper party.
Thank you Three Lakes for a truly wonderful and special day!
Julie & Mark 29.05.15
We cannot praise The Three Lakes highly enough.
We only gave them 4 weeks notice before our wedding date. They really went out of their way to help organise our special day, the service from Maxine and all the staff was excellent, the food exceptional and the DJ finished the day off well with a good selection of music.
I would highly recommend The Three Lakes to anyone, our day could not have been more perfect. Thank you!
Leigh & Danny
We got married here back in August this year. My childhood dream of getting married in a castle, was instantly changed when I saw this venue. The Aisle is simply perfect with stunning views overlooking the lakes and the Arched Barn was decorated beautifully with drapes. The staff couldn’t have done more to make our day run smoothly. Especially Maxine, from start to finish Maxine made sure that the day was perfect and everything that we hoped it would be. She works round the clock to make sure everybody is happy. We cant thank you all enough. We would highly recommend this venue and couldn’t have picked a more perfect place to get married!

Our day was completely flawless. All the way through the planning we were kept up to date with all matters via email and kept informed of everything that we needed to know – even down to the change in wine suppliers and were offered the chance to taste it to ensure we were happy with it. Maxine and the team ensured that our special day was all we hoped for and it certainly was! The venue is stunning, the food is out of this world, and I would certainly recommend three lakes to anyone wanting a wedding venue of outstanding beauty and brilliant customer service!
Jane and Glen
‘Words can’t express our gratitude for everything you did to ensure our special day went perfectly.
From the moment we visited the beautiful surroundings of the 3 Lakes and met with Maxine and her lovely team we knew we’d found our perfect venue. The word no was never muttered once in our 17 months of planning and preparation, there was always a solution to any request and because of this relaxed yet professional approach we had no stress at all just a lovely experience all together. We had the most magical day, after a week of weather reports promising thunder storms we were met by blue skies and were able to hold our ceremony over looking the lakes as we’d hoped – we even managed to have photos taken in front of the most beautiful sunset later on in the evening. We have had so many amazing comments about our day from the beautiful food, the lovely staff, the barn and it’s surroundings and the brilliant in-house DJ Andy who had our guests dancing all night!!
We couldn’t recommend the 3 lakes more as a wedding venue if we tried’.
Kathryn and Matt Oxley xx
We cant say a big enough thank you to all of the staff at the three lakes for making our day so perfect. Special thanks go to Maxine, who was always there when we had questions and her wonderfully calm attitude rubbed off on us and we couldn’t help but know we were in safe hands. The venue is just stunning and so relaxed which is what we wanted for our big day and there are so many areas for beautiful pictures. The food was delicious and very well executed for a large number of people. The whole day seemed seamless, and if anything ever went wrong then we were none the wiser to it. My only very small moan was how hot the room was – our wedding day was one of the hottest of the year, but some more fans or air conditioning would definitely have helped.
Thank you so much to everyone that was involved in creating our perfect day. If you want a relaxed, VERY well organised and beautiful wedding then The Three Lakes is definitely the venue for you.
Katie and tom
From the minute we met Maxine and were shown around the beautiful Three Lakes venue we knew this was where we were going to get married and finally become husband and wife! We were made to feel that it was only our big day that mattered and that there weren’t other weddings going on throughout the year that Maxine and her team were involved in. Even with my countless emails and communication I was always treated with respect and care. On the day itself we couldn’t have asked for more from the team. The day before the wedding when setting up we were informed that Maxine had unfortunately been off sick for the past week and sudden panic rushed through us and set in but on the day Maxine was there with a smile on her face making you forget all of your worries and concerns and made it feel like things went so smoothly. We had our hearts set on getting married outside overlooking the lakes but that wasn’t to be due to the English weather letting us down last minute. However having the ceremony inside, despite having 90 guests, was made to feel so intimate and perfect. We have had nothing but compliments and praise for all aspects of the day and for that we can only thank Maxine and her amazing team at Three Lakes!
Mr and Mrs McGrath
“We’d like to thank you and all the staff because both our guests and ourselves felt that throughout both the wedding and the planning stages that you couldn’t do enough to help us, everyone was so friendly and warm and everyone we met at Three Lakes was the model of professionalism. Even when our planning went slightly wrong (like me arranging the brides wedding car to arrive far too early!) you managed to whisk the bride out of view and arrange things so nothing went wrong.
Without exception everyone commented on how great the food was, again any changes or wishes we had were seamlessly integrated. In fact the food was so good that it’s quite lucky we live so far away, you’d never get rid of us otherwise!
Even though due to inclement weather we were unable to have our wedding outside, the hall was beautifully decorated and typically the sun came out afterwards so we were able to get some pictures with the beautiful view in the grounds.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Three Lakes as a wedding venue to anyone, I don’t think you can put a value on people like Maxine and her staff, when you get married you want a day to enjoy and remember forever not to worry about little things, they take care of everything and leave you to your day. So thanks for everything, we had such an amazing day our only regret was that it had to end!”
Ryan & Karina Riches
Thank you for everything that you and your staff did for Roxanne and Anthony’s big day. It couldn’t have gone better
I know that they absolutely adored Three Lakes and it was the perfect venue and the service from the staff was fantastic and the food delicious. They hope to renew their vows in the Pergoda in a few years time too.
Roxanne and Anthony Nolan 30th April 2014
The whole day itself ran smoothly we were married inside and the arched barn was dressed lovely we both loved the fact that the entire day was in one place and that the room turned fromt he ceremony room into the dining room seemlessly was fantastic. The bbq food that we had as our wedding breakfast meal was amazing (especially the sausages) and we loved the fact that we were able to tweak the menu to suit to our taste and requirements.
The atmosphere of the venue was relaxed meaning our guests felt welcomed not only by us but by the staff who were serving on that day. Lastly, a special thank you to Maxine who was brilliant from showing us around the venue to the day itself and even on the Sunday when we returned to pick up a few left over bits and pieces. No question was to big or too small to answer and every step of the day was planned to perfection all in all we had a fantastic day and would recommend the Three Lakes to anyone.
Natalie and Lee Cane
My husband and I got married at Three Lakes on 29th March 2014 on a glorious sunny day. I have always loved the views at Three Lakes and after reading other couples reviews online it confirmed for me that it was my first choice for a wedding venue, and we managed to achieve this by taking full advantage of the winter wedding package.
From day one it was a pleasure to work with Maxine on the planning for the big day, it was completely stress free. We booked, planned and held the wedding within a period of 3 months. We left each meeting confident that everything was in hand and when the big day arrived the organisation by Maxine and her team of staff was perfect. From the lovely handwritten sign announcing our wedding (a lovely, personal touch) to the time keeping, room prep, and ‘banter’ with our guests!
We had a very relaxed and most joyous day with many guests commenting on the wonderful atmosphere in the Old Tack Room and Arched Barn, due in no small part to the pleasant and ever helpful staff. The food was absolutely delicious and service excellent. I would highly recommend Three Lakes as a venue to hold any special event!
Natalie and Ben
Phil & I can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us! Our day was magical! We were both amazed that after a week of miserable weather it changed in time to have our ceremony outside, as we had hoped so much for! You made everything flow so beautifully right from the first time we came to view Three Lakes to the end of our day! As you know we had a fair few Hick ups with hairdressers, cake makers & even the dress but there was never an issue with the venue thanks to you. Your staff are a credit to you! They worked extremely hard not just at our reception but at the restaurant for our family meal after. We were so pleased we chose the tea party as it was perfect for a second or even a third marriage! Lol!! We would recommend Three Lakes to everyone, it makes a perfect setting for a magical day!
Thank you Maxine for everything!
Phil & Amanda Green
I don’t think either of us can recommend you highly enough, we had a fantastic day, it was great knowing all the little details were already in hand. It went really smoothly and all we had to worry about on the day was getting our vows right! We opted for a buffet and this went down really well, we had lots of good feedback from our guests. The venue is beautiful, we were lucky enough to catch a gorgeous autumn sun set outside overlooking the lakes for our photos too. Everyone was well looked after, the bridesmaids and best men were directed and knew what they had to do, lots of attention to detail. We both felt confident we could rely on Maxine and the staff to accommodate all our needs. The beautiful drapes and décor really made a difference and gave the barn an extra special feel. It was a memorable day and we can’t thank you enough 🙂
Claire & Dan Hovell

Del & Michelle Raymond
Married 12th July 2013.
Our wedding was held on Saturday 22nd June 2013 at Three Lakes Westmill Farm Ware
John and I had been together for 23 years before we decided to tie the knot. After visiting many venues we chose Three lakes for the beauty of the setting for ceremony and the confidence we felt Maxine had as a wedding organiser. She didn’t let us down!
My only concern was regards to the weather. However we need not have worried. As the weather was inclement the service had to be inside. It really made no difference to us after all. All the worrying of it maybe being held inside was washed away on the day. Maxine and her staff knew exactly what to do. The room looked stunning and for us actually made it more personal.
We had decided to cut our cake after the ceremony as cakes always seem to go to waste otherwise. We had a 12pm ceremony time so we hired casino tables and an amazing magician to keep our guests occupied and entertained while they were waiting for the wedding breakfast. This also enabled us to get through the photos without people standing around for 2 hours.
we had a photo booth in the evening too which the guests loved and I would highly recommend this for any wedding!
Every time we asked Maxine if we could add another this or another that she didn’t bat an eyelid. Nothing was too much trouble.
The wedding breakfast – we plumped for the BBQ which went down a treat. The choice of food amazing and plenty of it too! The minted lamb was amazing! My favourite. One of my pet hates at weddings – small portions! You didn’t have to worry about that though. Amazing amounts of food. This also applies to the evening buffet which was outstanding and in abundance. The chef came out and spoke to all our guests during the meal which was a lovely touch.
The whole wedding, the whole day was faultless and this was due to Maxine and her staff. I am an organised person and find it hard to let go sometimes but at Three Lakes I could let go and let someone else take control knowing they would deliver. And they certainly did!
I would not hesitate to recommend this venue to any bride and groom. They made our day so special and for that we will be eternally grateful.
Thank you so much Maxine, you and your staff are a credit to Three Lakes – You made a 23 year wait an exceptional one. One we will never forget.
So if you are a bride & groom looking for the perfect setting for your special day – Book Three Lakes! Don’t worry about the weather whatever the day brings you will be looked after and made to feel special. For John & I one of the very best days of our lives – we couldn’t have wished for anything better.
Thank you so so much xx
Anita & John Webster
Everything was just perfect we could not have asked for a better day. The planning and preparation was done with a minimum of fuss and any query answered promptly. Excellent service was provided on the day and the food was tremendous. It was all in keeping with such a beautiful venue.
Hayley and Matt
The service we received from Maxine and Chloe during the planning of our wedding to the actual day was fantastic. My (many!) emails to Maxine and Chloe were always responded to promptly and in a friendly manner.
On the wedding day itself Maxine and all the staff worked tirelessly to make sure that we and all our guests were happy. With Maxine’s fantastic coordination the ceremony and reception ran to time and all the guests were guided to the right places at just the right time. We opted for the BBQ buffet, and the food was absolutely gorgeous. Many of our guests commented at how nice it all tasted and how much food was available. The lemon cheesecake dessert was very moreish!
Overall, Maxine, Chloe and all the staff at Westmill Farm were faultless in the roles they played leading up to and on the day of our wedding and we would like to say a big thank you for making our day so perfect. We would highly recommend Westmill Farm to anyone looking to hold a wedding or any other celebration as the setting is beautiful and it is great value for money.
Jen and John
