We had our wedding here in December and it was magical. It was so great to have all our loved ones celebrating under one roof together. Anthony the owner was a star we couldn't have asked for a more accommodating, friendly owner. Even had a smile when our caterers fused the hall!! Thanks for everything!

We got married here in August 2015 and had the most fantastic time. Anthony was so helpful throughout. The grounds are stunning. Our Australian guests couldn't get over the fact that they were staying in a "castle" and the children absolutely loved having so much space to run and play. We cannot recommend Hargate, or Julie and Anthony, highly enough. We will be back here for our 5 year anniversary.

We got married here and had the most amazing weekend of our lives. Can't fault the place - they're so friendly and helpful! Also the website photos no longer do the place justice - it's been refurbished to a high standard and looks fabulous. THANK YOU!
Response from Hargate Hall
Thank you for the review, and the comments about the refurbishment we have done. I really need to get the photos updated and do a blog about the work done!

A Beautiful, Well Run Wedding Venue With Masses of Character. We recently used Hargate Hall as our wedding venue, and would strongly recommend it to anyone who is looking to do something a bit different for their wedding or party. My wife and I were after a winter wedding where we could take over the venue and do our own thing. In short, this included having the ceremony there, dressing it ourselves and bring in our own caterers and bar, none of which were a problem for the venue. We also wanted somewhere we could make a weekend of our celebrations, and have most of our family and friends staying with us in the house. This package of a flexible venue with so much on site accommodation is very rare, as you will know if you’re researching your own wedding, but we would still have considered holding it somewhere else, had this not been teamed with the friendly, professional service we received from Hargate’s owners. Both my wife and I organise events for a living, and above all else, what you want from a venue (once you know you like it) is open honesty as to the facilities and services they will be able to provide, and then those services being delivered, which was exactly what Anthony and the team did. They have an extensive knowledge of the local area, including caterers, taxi firms, other accommodation providers and suppliers of the fixtures and fittings you would require, which actually made a reasonably complicated procedure quite easy. If you’re considering using Hargate as a venue, I strongly recommend going for a visit and a chat with Anthony to establish the kind of thing you’re after, and whether Hargate can offer that. All I can say is that we loved every minute of it, and have already thought about planning another weekend there for our family (once we’ve had chance to relax for a while). Hargate Hall will not be everyone’s preferred type of venue, but if it’s yours, you’ll know it from the moment you step through the door.
