Hawkstone Hall & Gardens opens as luxury wedding venue and hotel…
Following the completion of Phase 1 of it’s huge restoration – The doors to Hawkstone Hall, a grade 1 listed, 18th Century mansion in Shropshire, will finally open this April, revealing what is set to be one the UK’s most prestigious hotel & wedding venues.
The country estate has opened it’s doors for the first time in its long history, as a luxurious country hotel & exclusive events venue this month, offering a spectacularly romantic backdrop for some of the UKs most memorable weddings & events. Business partners Hannah Petrouis and Martin Hirst, from the Distinctly Hospitable Group, and a highly skilled team from Insight Construction, lead by Dale Middleton, took over the building in June 2017 and have been busy restoring all areas of the Hall & it’s 88 acres of gardens to their former glory ever since.
Phase 1 of the project encompassed a complete overhaul of all the event spaces, including the introduction of 6 crystal chandeliers in the unrecognisable Refectory and a stunning grand chandelier to illuminate The Ballroom. The walls have been adorned with spectacular William Morris wallpaper in many areas, paired with bespoke-design furniture & artworks throughout. 12 extremely luxurious suites were completed before Christmas spanning across 2 floors of the Main Hall, each equipped with bespoke furniture, free-standing cast-iron bath tubs & all the little luxuries you would expect in such a glorious setting.
The 2nd and final phase of refurbishment has just reached its completion, with an additional 25 bedrooms added, bringing the total number of bedrooms to 37. The perfect number to sleep an entire wedding party for the weekend.
Accommodating anything from 40-700 guests, with both exclusive and non-exclusive wedding packages available, Hawkstone Hall offers a wide range of options for couples with varying budgets. Menu packages are entirely bespoke to each couple’s requirements, and menu design meetings take place with the Hall’s executive chef Andrew Watts throughout the wedding planning process.
Hawkstone Hall is marked to be one of the UK’s leading destinations as a prestigious country hotel & events venue. With the added scope to host a variety of non-wedding events; corporate dinners, cookery days, food festivals & yoga retreats throughout the year.
