About Charlton Hall

Chathill, Alnwick
Northumberland, NE67 5DZ

Welcome to Charlton Hall. 

Charlton Hall is a stunning, Grade II listed rural country house where tradition playfully meets eccentricity. Here we bring you a magical and spectacular place to celebrate your wedding in a truly unique venue that is very different to any other in the North East.

We have brought this beautiful Georgian hall back to life, respecting its listed architectural features and rich history, Charlton Hall boasts high ceilings, vast rooms with baroque fireplaces and sash windows overlooking 150 acres of rolling countryside along the Northumbrian coast. 

The estate is entered through a private pillared entrance just off the A1, giving you the sense of being Lord and Lady of the hall. At the heart of this magical estate lies our 18th Century Charlton Hall, situated within unspoilt woodland and overlooking beautiful parkland towards the coast. 

As the naughty older sister to our award-winning wedding venue Doxford Barns, we have filled the hall with imagination, fun and cheeky interiors. Our bold colour scheme compliments imposing Tom Dixon pendants, mismatching fabrics, tapestries and throught-provoking statement pieces found throughout the hall.  

The venue includes enchanted function and entertaining rooms, including a large formal drawing room with marble fireplace and a stunning dining room with views towards the coast, which is perfect for an intimate wedding breakfast. The hall itself has 6 beautiful bedrooms to sleep 14, all with tastefully appointed en-suite bathrooms and named after the fearless characters acssociated with Charlton Hall. There is an additional cottage in the grounds which hosts a further 2 bedrooms.

Outside, our beautiful gardens lead to a spectacular courtyard offering a tranquil space for outdoor drink receptions accompanied by sumptuous canapés brought to you and your guests from our well-known head chef and his team. Within this magnificent courtyard is the entrance to the rustically charming ceremony hall which seats up to 140 people. 

• Exclusive use of the private estate • Exquisite accommodation with quirky, unique and contemporary styling • A truly unique function room, The Looking Glass featuring a star-lit ceiling • Family friendly venue that welcomes children • Award winning chef will create decadent and delicious menus • Atmospheric underground vaults

You are made to feel like family

I don’t think I can recommend Charlton Hall and the marvellous people who work there enough. Faye and myself got married there on 15 December 2018 and the whole journey from choosing the venue through the day itself and the breakfast the next day was excellent. It is hard to put into words the work and effort they put into the wedding. We were chatting to David on leaving and the best way to describe the relationship between us and Charlton Hall is not one of a customer, you are made to feel like family.

It was everything we wanted and more.

My husband and I got married at Charlton Hall on Saturday. What can I say, the staff especially David and Esme went above and beyond to make our day so special. It was everything we wanted and more. The owner Richard and his whole family made sure everything was ready on time, we really appreciate the work they put in. Charlton Hall is going to be the wedding venue all others aspire to. Much love Hazel and Geoff xxx

The venue is like no other in Northumberland

Well what can I say about Charlton Hall.. it exceeded all our expectations when it came to planning our wedding day. We saw this venue when it was a building site but we trusted the team, believed in what they wanted to achieve and they delivered. The venue is nothing like any other venue in Northumberland or any where else for that matter (and we viewed a lot of places). Charlton Hall blew our minds and the decor was exactly what we wanted. It’s hard to find a venue that brings family together in one house but also captures a fun and relaxed feel to it. This venue brought laughter, excitement and class to our wedding. Everyone commented at the end how amazing the day was from the food and drink right the way through to the venue itself. And let’s not forget George the giraffe being a key part of this and strangely enough the amazing toilets! What more do you want from a wedding. Massive thanks to the team. Their relaxed and professional approach was out of this world. They were all fantastic and we really appreciate all their help. Huge thank you. Liam and Kristina x

What an amazing place for a wedding!

What an amazing place for a wedding! We had a totally wonderful time at our daughter’s wedding. Without a doubt, Charlton Hall is set to become one of the top wedding venues in the country. The decor is superb; the service first class; the facilities top notch and the food outstanding. Thank you to Richard and his team for the unbelievable efforts made to make sure Lucy, Jez, their family and friends had such a fantastic time on New Year’s Eve.
