Nestled in 800 acres of idyllic English countryside, the lovingly restored 17th-century stately home and gardens combine the best of Jacobean splendour with an unmistakably contemporary feel, alongside spectacular avant-garde event structures. As you make your way along the tree-lined avenue, you’re invited to step into another world – your very own country-house escape.
Dorfold Hall boasts 19 acres of gorgeous grounds. On your big day, you’re invited to enjoy the lake, the manicured South Lawns, the hidden gem of The Dell and the Arcadian Walk. You can even take shelter beneath the 1000-year-old chestnut tree or amble along Ladies Walk taking in views of the beautiful Cheshire countryside.
The 'I dos'
The original Coach House has been sympathetically restored with plenty of original features to create a beautiful and versatile ceremony space. Complete with bespoke chandelier, under-floor heating and spiral staircase leading to the mezzanine level, the perfect place for musicians to play and add to the ambience.
Alternatively, for al fresco “I dos,” the gardens can play host to you and 180 of your guests in various locations.
As newlyweds, if an outdoor drinks reception is either not practical or preferable, you’ll head into The Tack. Located on the opposite side of the courtyard, this space has enormous sliding doors, allowing for a fabulous view and inviting the outside in. It also boasts an incredible bar. Spread across The Tack and Coach House there’s space for 160 loved ones.
Juxtaposing the historical and the contemporary, L’Ecurie (The Dining Room) offers and atmospheric backdrop for feasting and celebrations. Its main feature is the original brick wall of the former stable yard, which is balanced on the opposite site by a fabulous view of the Hall and clock tower. It can accommodate 180 for the wedding breakfast and evening revelries.
A one-bedroom cottage is included for the night prior to the wedding day and five double bedrooms are included for the night of the wedding.
