NEW VENUE - Opening Summer 2018
Welcome to Charlton Hall, our new wedding venue in Northumberland.
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 are currently in the process of bringing this beautiful Georgian hall back to life and in 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. We've also added tongue-in-cheek touches that are sure to cause a stir…. you just need to watch this space or see Instagram to know what we’re referring to!
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 assortment of cellars are truly unique and provide a hidden after-party chill out area or dance floor. The hall itself has 6 beautiful bedrooms to sleep 12, 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 to host 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 shall seat up to 120 people, who we believe will be in awe of the outstanding views of Charlton Lake, which is also available to guests for ceremonies and memorable photographs on your big day.
Viewings are by appointment only. As they say, the early bird catches the worm... so we recommend contacting our team to hear about the first come first served offers for weddings in 2018
