Hidden away in the heart of rural Staffordshire, Alrewas Hayes is a historical 100-acre country estate where exceptional event experiences happen.

    The best day of our lives!

    I can't speak highly enough of Alrewas Hayes as a venue and the entire team - and nor can any of our guests weeks on!
    The venue itself is absolutely beautiful. It is so private, gorgeous and grand, yet still has a real 'homely' feel to it, which we and our guests all fell in love with. The accommodation is stunning, there are endless photo backdrops, and the actual interior is incredible. The decor of the entire place is just amazing.
    One of our favourite parts of getting married here was our meal tasting night, which was put on like a big event in itself. The team couldn't do enough for us and the other couples, and the food was out of this world, as were the drinks. We had so many compliments on the day about the food - both day and night offerings, and the wines.
    On our actual wedding day, everything was perfect, and that's all down to the Alrewas team, but especially Emma, our wedding planner. Emma was an absolute godsend during the build up to the wedding, and she's just a genuinely lovely girl - I always enjoyed our chats! She had great suggestions for suppliers and ideas, and I really valued her opinion. On the wedding day, she ensured everything ran perfectly, and it was so reassuring knowing she was there and had it all under control. Tom also made both our meal tasting and wedding day so special, and his knowledge of wines is highly impressive - we were so grateful for all of his advice! Bonnie and Toby were also another big reason we fell in love with this venue, as their genuine care and passion for the events they hold is so evident - even down to being present and serving drinks at our wedding! We loved the homely/family vibe that really shone at Alrewas, and that stemmed from them entirely. We are so grateful to you all, and the rest of your fantastic team for giving us the best day of our lives - you're all incredible at what you do! Thank you a million times over! Lisa X

    Dream wedding

    We attended a family wedding on 17/8/21 and had a fabulous time. The entire estate was well presented and spotlessly clean . The staff were well mannered, polite, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Our accommodation was very spacious and luxurious. The food was first class in taste and presentation. If I had to ask for any changes it would be to make a snug and comfortable waiting area for older relatives. Otherwise I would highly recommend this venue to any couples wanting that special day.

    Exceptional Venue and Staff

    We attended Alrewas Hayes for the first time to attend a wedding. The Venue itself was absolutely gorgeous. We were overwhelmed by the high standard of food and level of service offered, nothing was too much trouble. The standard of the overnight accommodation was so luxurious, we did not want to leave. We enjoyed a wonderful feast of a breakfast prior to departure and the owners took the time to check if we had enjoyed our visit and wish us a safe journey home. No hesitation in recommending.

    RaNi Wedding Oct 2019

    Where can I start? From start to finish the service has been amazing! Alrewas Hayes was the first venue we visited when we started to look and we fell in love straight away! The grounds, scenery and the interior were beautiful we knew it was the one. The staff made our wedding experience the most memorable. Easy, simple and free flowing. We had endless comments and still do till this day about how stunning our venue was. Our guests enjoyed their day! Alrewas were easy to work with not only with us but the rest of our suppliers and took care of things we didnt have time to on the day. We also used the wall mapping in the grand pavilion and it was sensational!! If you're looking to get married here, you have found the perfect place!! Wish we could do it all over again!!

    Absolutely disgusting behaviour

    Absolutely disgusting behaviour by the owner of this venue...

    We were attending an Asian Wedding and the family had spent a lot of money hiring the venue and outside services. But their owner was very rude and impolite to service providers and family members who where helping to sort out issues.

    If you are looking for a venue owned and ran by a control freak book this place. Even the staff seem to be ashamed of the owner and are left to apologise on his behalf.

    AVOID AT ALL COSTS

    Alrewas Hayes's reply:

    We are most perturbed to read the comment you have posted. We pride ourselves on providing the highest standard of service. We have checked the events rota and of our Managers was on duty for the Event in question. You did not actually meet with the ‘owner’. We would be grateful if you contact our office and arrange a meeting to discuss your concerns as soon as you are able.

    The Best Day!!

    Alrewas Hayes, thank you!! You are so good at your jobs! Dan and I had the perfect wedding.

    The day was better than we could've imagined and the team on the day went above and beyond to make everyone feel welcome and looked after.

    Special mention to Georgina, thank you. You were a big reason why we chose Alrewas as we felt you understood us and knew what we wanted for our big day. You sorted everything we wanted and your advice on suppliers and support was invaluable.

    Alrewas Hayes is a stunning venue. All of our guests were wowed. From day one they supported us and someone was always on hand to help. I cannot recommend them enough.
