The Maynard wins big at The Wedding Industry Awards 2022!

Wedding awards at The Maynard

We are absolutely delighted to announce that we have won the Wedding Venue (Hotel) Of The Year award at The Wedding Industry Awards for the East Midlands region!

After such a challenging year for the whole of the hospitality industry, it makes winning this award even more special for us – especially considering the strength of the other finalists in our category.

We are proud of the recognition that this award will bring not just for The Maynard, but the whole of the Peak District.

In 2022 we plan to build on this success even further – we are currently in the final stages of a new round of refurbishments to even further improve our special venue, ensuring every wedding day at The Maynard is perfect.
