Information For Eshott Hall

This perfectly-proportioned Georgian country house is an absolute gem; its mellow honey-coloured stone, and exquisite architectural detailing make this an especially photogenic venue to choose for your wedding celebrations. In a timeless setting, surrounded by its own private gardens and grounds, it’s hard to imagine being only minutes from the A1.

As you arrive through iron gates and up the gravel driveway to this beautiful venue, you’ll find yourself surrounded by mature gardens and grounds, which in typical English country house style features striped lawns, an extensive kitchen garden, tennis court, Victorian fernery and grounds with a fine selection of specimen trees and acres of ancient woodland beyond.

Step inside and the romance continues with an original blend of modern design and elegant period features including a magnificent winding staircase and feature William Morris stained glass window, almost made for capturing the first picture-perfect glimpse of a bride.

Our twenty elegantly appointed bedrooms, some complete with four poster beds, freestanding in-room baths and romantic views across the rolling lawns and ancient woodland are no less impressive. Generously proportioned and beautifully furnished they have everything you and your guests need for an indulgent stay.

You’ll find eleven individually themed guest bedrooms and suites in the main Hall, a further six equally luxurious bedrooms in the neighbouring Eshott Grange and three in Eshott Estate Stables. We also have two spacious holiday cottages in the grounds, perfect for accommodating your wedding guests.

Alongside the bedrooms, there are several grand, yet welcoming, reception rooms including a resplendent ballroom, which comfortably seats 100 guests for a reception and also makes for a very fine dance floor. Then there’s the restaurant, serving sublime dishes using the finest locally sourced produce from the Northumbrian coast and countryside – and often from our own kitchen garden. Meticulous attention to detail goes into crafting each and every dish – elevating our dining to award-winning standards, including the coveted 2 AA rosettes for our high standards of creative cuisine.

Classic canapes, haute cuisine or bacon rolls at midnight – whether you’re looking for a formal wedding breakfast for 100 or a playful Mad Hatter’s tea party, our head chef and his team are happy to create a delicious bespoke menu, just for you. And to ensure we’ve tailored our menu to your exact individual tastes you’ll be invited to attend a complimentary menu tasting for two ahead of your wedding.

Imagine having all of this to yourselves as you tie the knot – just you and your chosen guests, given free rein of your own stately home. Following our guiding principle of ‘your day, your way’ you’ll have the freedom and space to host the ultimate English country house party.

As pretty as a picture, Eshott Hall is a truly photogenic venue whatever the season but especially so in early summer with the wisteria cascading fragrant blooms over the Hall’s front elevation and portico. The 70 acres of grounds include a restored Victorian fernery with its own gazebo, elegant striped lawns, walled kitchen garden and a whimsical woodland area with rustic seating and bark aisle perfect for al fresco nuptials. The interior of the house is just as beautiful, with period detail from the Georgian era adding the style and charm that you would anticipate from the exterior approach The food at Eshott Hall is award-winningly good, with 2 AA rosettes for culinary excellence. Couples and their guests can expect sublime dishes crafted from the finest locally sourced produce from the Northumbrian coast and countryside. A two-minute walk away from the main Hall you’ll find Eshott Reading Room, a dignified former Methodist Chapel, makes a natural choice for nuptials. It has the ambience of a more traditional wedding venue without the religious element of a church wedding. Eshott Hall is the ideal year-round private retreat for intimate groups or larger weddings. We’re proud to offer Eshott Hall for your exclusive use, meaning you can truly unwind and make yourself at home in glorious seclusion. Country House Manor HouseExclusive UseHotelSame-SexWoodland

Where do we start? We can’t thank all of the staff enough for providing an exceptional service from the minute we booked our wedding with you in September 2017 until our actual wedding at the weekend. There are a few members of staff we’d like to mention specifically that had a part in helping the day run smoothly including Hannah who was there throughout all the organisation and planning, Heather and Tracey who helped finalise the last few details and of course the incredible Ricky who was a godsend throughout our big day. Ricky was of course supported by a huge team - front of house staff, housekeeping staff and kitchen staff and therefore anybody who worked throughout Saturday 3rd August we’d like to say a massive thank you! Everything was perfect! The venue itself is exquisite and the grounds are simply stunning! We’ve had endless comments about the quality of the food that was served throughout the weekend and the professionalism of the waiting staff. We’ve attached a few photos from guests which we feel show off what an amazing place Eshott Hall is and we just know when we get the professional ones they’ll been beautiful too. We had the best day of our lives and a huge credit of that goes to you. We can’t recommend you highly enough!

The most beautiful place ever to get married. From start to finish Eshott Hall could not be faulted. The staff were so so helpful on the run up and on the day and they could not do enough for us on our wedding day. Our wedding was not just another day to them it was important that everything was perfect. We had a woodland wedding which was totally unique and different but exactly what we wanted. If you want the perfect wedding day with exclusive use, Eshott is the place for you. Can we do it all again
Response from Eshott Hall

Magical Wedding Weekend
Thank you to everyone at Eshott for a magical wedding weekend. It was everything we hoped it would be and the location, the helpful staff and of course the amazing sunny spring weather made it perfect! We love the hall, it’s like home from home, the rooms are gorgeous and the grounds and the Reading Room are so beautiful. Walking down the drive to the ceremony at the Reading Room made it even more special. On the morning of my wedding I opened my curtains to see rabbits playing on the lawn, blue tits flying by singing and the sun shining through the trees – couldn’t have been better! All of our guests loved the hall too so everyone had a fantastic time. We are very happy that we picked Eshott Hall for our wedding and would recommend it to anyone else who would like a picture perfect, relaxed country house wedding in the most lovely county in England.
