About Colville Hall

Chelmsford Road, White Roding
Essex, CM6 1RQ

Colville Hall is a simply stunning wedding venue that is the perfect place for your special day and up to 200 guests. Based in Essex, this unique group of thatched barns are situated around a picturesque courtyard setting and is a location rich in charm and history.

Colville Hall's unique selling point is that we have two barns. One for the Wedding breakfast - the Mill Pond Barn and one for the civil cermony or drinks reception - the Orchard Barn. Allowing everything to be set up in the morning and no turn around time keeping guest waiting for chairs and tables to be moved. Also in bad weather a drinks reception and group photographs can be held in the Orchard Barn - no one is left to panic and the venue is completely prepared for all weather types, making it a great choice for any season.

The ambience and tranquillity of Colville Hall is breathtaking. There are 10 acres of formal gardens with beautiful features that will make those picture opportunities even more special and romantic. We are licensed to hold civil ceremonies in our Orchard Barn and if you are planning a summer wedding then our two gazebos make a magical outside setting.

Enjoy a surreal and unforgettable wedding breakfast in the Mill Pond Barn with its 30 foot glass doors and views overlooking the elegant duck pond. The Cambridge Dining Company are Colville Hall’s exclusive catering partners and will provide an exquisite dinning service for your wedding day. The wedding planner we provide you with will help you choose from the range of fresh and seasonal British food, to find the right menu to suit your wedding party and budget. 

The Old Dairy is a lovingly converted spot that is the perfect place for the bride and her bridal party to stay the night before the wedding. With a seven foot mirror and large dressing room, you can get ready for your big day in the lap of luxury!

Absolutely beautiful
Venue Service

By Angela, on 30 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Nov 2018

I was a bridesmaid at my friends wedding here and It was the most beautiful venue I have ever been to for a wedding. I went for the initial show around to look at the grounds with my friend and the owner was very welcoming. We discussed ideas and how we would have the day. I then spoke to the owner, Philippa several times separately because I really wanted to have a little surprise set up for the happy couple on the day and I was super worried about how it would go. Philippa and Gill both helped me make this happen and I can’t thank them enough, It got me some serious brownie points on the day! The bar and the dance floor are in the same Area so people didn’t get separated up on the day. Another friend of mine is considering getting married here now next year so I am looking forward to that!

Niece's wedding
Venue Service

By Carolyn and Steve, on 24 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 12 Oct 2018

We attended the wedding of our niece in October and were very impressed with how beautiful the venue at Colville Hall is. It was truly magical. The service was superb, everyone very helpful and attentive. We have been to a couple weddings over the last year and found our experience, and that of our niece, wonderful.

Beautiful Setting shame about the service
Venue Service

By Emma and James, on 18 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Sep 2018

My husband and I had our wedding at Colville Hall in September. It was a beautiful day in an absolutely gorgeous setting, we really couldn’t have been happier with the food provided by Host Catering and Colville Hall’s wedding coordinator Gill. However if you want a venue who is accommodating to your needs, takes the brides feelings into consideration or tries to make planning your wedding a special and pleasant experience, Colville Hall is not the right place. The owner comes across cold and at times down right rude. She is not in the business to see happy couples wed at her barns so do not expect a warm reception. As a bride you should enjoy your experience planning your wedding not feel utter dread every-time you have to contact the venue about something. The final straw was 2 weeks before our wedding I had asked if I could pay £100 to be able to just use the living area of the small accommodation outside the barn. It was not being rented by us for the day/night but I had several friends with small babies and I thought it might be a good escape for them if they wanted to step out to feed. The response from the venue was that if my friends wanted privacy when feeding young children they should go into the toilet and do it there. Not an ideal response when trying to think about your guests needs. That along with many other difficult exchanges really filled me with apprehension and anxiety for the actual day. Saved only by the truly fantastic Gill and the enchanting setting I would not recommend any of my friends to Colville Hall.

Best Day Ever - Stunning Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By Emily Kerchell, on 14 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Sep 2018

We recently had our wedding at Colville Hall on 15 September. Gill (the wedding coordinator for the day) makes this venue, she was fantastic on the day, from helping set up in the morning, to making things run smoothly all day, to helping clear the barn in the evening. I was lucky to have early access to get ready on site on the day of the wedding, I was told by Philippa that she would need access to the the bridal suite to show other people around but as it turns out there were no show rounds on the day and we had full access all day. Gill was there to help with anything from the minute she arrived (at 9 am) and was helping right up to the minute she left at around 1 am. Colville Hall is a stunning venue, we had so many compliments from our guests on the venue. It is a great location. It was lovely to have our close family stay on site the night of the wedding.

Just the best day!
Venue Service

By Jo and Lee Calver, on 15 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 18 Aug 2018

Colville hall was just simply the most magical place to get married at. The moment we visited, we knew it was where we wanted to say I do, and when the day finally arrived, it was everything we wished for and more. Philippa, Gill and the rest of the team are just fab. The venue itself just gleams in class, sophistication and history. As a history teacher, it completely blew me away, but the magic worked on all our guests, as so many said that it was just the most beautiful venue they had ever been to for a wedding. We loved that every part of the wedding day could be in the same place, yet all have its own area. The day was seamless and stunning. Colville Hall gave us our fairy-tale day, and for that, we will always be truly grateful.

Dream wedding!

My best friend had her wedding here and we were so impressed with the day from start to finish. Everything was beautifully presented and we felt like we could all really enjoy the day and make memories. Would highly recommend.

A beautiful venue for our wedding
Venue Service

By Helena Wu and Dean Faulder, on 08 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 21 Oct 2017

My husband and I were keen to find a venue that was picturesque with barns; Colville Hall fitted this requirement. It is clear that Richard and Philippa have invested a vast amount of time and money into the venue and with beautiful countryside surrounding the site, any couple who choose Colville Hall will reap the benefits of having a stunning venue for their special day. Richard and Philippa were very accommodating to our needs as we had two ceremonies as well as the rest of a traditional wedding to fit in. It was great that we could personalise the venue to match our chosen theme and this certainly was commented upon by all our friends and family. We feel lucky and privileged that we found a venue that allowed us to be us!

Beautiful barn, questionable service
Venue Service

By Allan & Nick, on 20 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 07 Oct 2017

As a groom we chose the venue for its location and beauty. Unfortunately from day one the service was below standard and on more than one occasion created stress around our happy event even right up to the day of our celebration. I'm sure it will get there with time and practice.
