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

Esme was absolutely outstanding ! Nothing was too much trouble. She kept me calm throughout the whole process, it almost felt like having a close friend helping you plan your wedding. I will actually miss speaking to her ! Every team member that we came into contact with was brilliant. Charlton Hall is a venue like no other, it’s pioneering in its way of thinking and design, it was exactly what we were looking for. All of our family and friends haven’t stopped talking about it. We will definitely be having more events here in the future. Thanks again for making our wedding dreams come true, I still get emotional now thinking about it.

Thank you for giving us the most magical wedding day 10.08.19. It was everything we ever dreamed of and more.

All the staff were brilliant
Venue Service

By Tori Scott Wingfield, on 22 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Jul 2019

We had the most amazing wedding at Charlton Hall in July 2019. I couldn’t possibly have imagined that it would be so amazing and all our guests loved the venue. All the staff were brilliant, especially Esme. They made the whole planning process as smooth as it could be and offered great ideas when we had to make some changes. On the weekend of the wedding all the staff were amazing and kept us well looked after. The rooms are gorgeous and beds are super comfy so every part of the wedding experience was just wonderful.

The staff were just beyond words.
