About Dorfold Hall

Dorfold Hall, Nantwich
Cheshire, CW5 8LD

Dorfold Hall is one of Cheshire’s hidden gems. Nestled within a quintessentially English landscape, the privately owned Jacobean stately home offers an unquestionably romantic setting for a truly memorable wedding day.

Available to hire exclusively, so that you and your guests can enjoy it in complete seclusion and built 400 years ago, the grade I listed Dorfold Hall with its stunning architecture and enchanting gardens provides a spectacular backdrop for your wedding. A tree-lined driveway, a lake, lush gardens and hidden dells, not to mention the uninterrupted views as far as the eye can see from the South lawn, the grounds are captivating and have often been described as "reminiscent of (Burnett's) The Secret Garden". 

Whether you choose to tie the knot in the beautiful gardens, in the Hall (for smaller ceremonies) or in the Coach House - which lies in the shade of a 1000 year old Spanish Chestnut tree - or indeed if you have chosen to get married in one of the local churches, Dorfold Hall has the flexibility to deliver your dream.

The King James I bridal suite with all its grandiose splendour ensures the most romantic and luxurious of wedding nights. Designed for King James I in the 1620s, this room boasts original wood panelling and plasterwork, as well as glorious views of the English countryside. Additionally to the bridal suite, we have four gorgeous bedrooms inside the Hall itself, each with their very own style and history attached to them. Redwood  and Lakeside Cottages are a pair of cottages framing the entrance to the circular courtyard in front of the Hall. Having been recently renovated they blend some fascinating historical features with all the modern amenities one yearns for. Redwood has 3 double bedrooms and Lakeside has 2 double bedrooms.
In total, you can have up to 20 adult guests (including yourselves) staying in the Hall and grounds.

The venue’s discreet and dedicated team believe in a truly bespoke service, in the belief that each and every event must be tailor-made to help bring to life each couples very own vision of their day.

The Hall is conveniently situated 15 minutes from the M6 and also 12 minutes from Crewe train station. In turn, the station is only 90 minutes from London and 35 minutes from Manchester. As for accomodation for your guests - there are innumerable hotels and B&Bs on our doorstep. 

Dorfold Hall offers an idyllic setting full of history, charm and outstanding location for an extraordinary event!

By Amy Bibby, on 04 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Sep 2017

I have just returned from my best friend's wedding at Dorfold Hall. The entire weekend ran so smoothly, with Candice and her husband, Charlie, helping with everything. They were always on hand to help us and went above and beyond the call of duty. The grounds, rooms and marquee are beautiful, everything is so well maintained. The food and wine was also incredible, I am unsure if this is linked to the venue by a caterer but definitely worth a mention. If I had seen this venue myself, I am certain we would have booked it for our own wedding. Candice and Charlie have created the perfect wedding venue from their beautiful family home - you must visit this venue.

Thank you do much Amy for such a fabulous review! It was such a pleasure getting to know you and Charlotte. Charlie and I wish you all the very very bets for your wedding early next year. Best wishes, Candice

Just perfect!!

My husband and I waited 17 years to make our vows so we wanted something personal, unique and reflective of our relationship and personalities. We saw hotels, wedding venues where we would be one of several couples in a weekend and we're losing heart that we would find somewhere different. Then we contacted Dorfold Hall. What a decision!! We were invited to visit, where we were met by the owners!! I knew straight away nothing would compare. There is so much to see and unlimited possibilities. We had so many ideas and questions and each one was met with positivity, enthusiasm and further suggestions from Mr and Mrs Roundell. We set a date and booked the ceremony at the beautiful 12th century church next door. We held our wedding on 3Rd September 2016 and it was even more magical than we could have hoped for, even though it was raining. We had so many comments about the venue my husband and I cannot recommend Dorfold Hall highly enough if you are looking for a dream wedding. And if you do read this and book your wedding there, please invite us so we can visit and relive it's magic again!!!!
