About Us...

Set in the heart of the beautiful Northumbrian countryside, Hallington Mill is a small rural estate with real personality and warmth. Nestled in a secluded setting surrounded by acres of private woodland, streams and open countryside it is full of natural beauty, character, history and charm.

As the proud owners, Elizabeth & Rob, we fell in love with Hallington Mill in 2016 and took on the rejuvenation of the estate as a real-life family adventure. Offering you the warmest of welcomes, our approach is down-to-earth and genuine, weddings here are an invitation to join this adventure and make it part of your own.

Hallington is situated close to Matfen, Corbridge and Hexham, Hallington Mill is easily accessed yet tucked away and off the beaten track. A real hidden gem, it offers something unique with a very relaxed personal feel.

The Site...

At the heart of the estate, the C16th Mill has been lovingly restored and now blends luxury, design and historic features with a relaxing atmosphere. Offering extremely spacious accommodation for up to 13 adults plus children. The Mill and Barn both have options for large wedding suites with dressing tables and couches, there is plenty of space to prepare for your big day with parents and the wedding party. There are also several entertaining spaces, a huge country farmhouse kitchen, cinema room and a dinning room in the Mill which seats 20 - perfect for intimate weddings, pre-wedding dinners and post-wedding breakfasts! We will be adding a former threshing barn to our offer for the 2022 season which will be able to accomodate 4 guests bring our total to 17 guests that we can accomodate in bedrooms. We do also allow camping for the night of your wedding in tents or campervans.

Set in a tranquil and secluded valley, the extensive grounds provide an idyllic setting for a bespoke, relaxed, rural wedding. A natural canvass upon which to create your own wedding experience, one which we feel should be enjoyed and never rushed with the freedom to select your own suppliers, we are happy to recommend!

The woodland provides a tranquil backdrop to any wedding ceremony, or alternatively this area can be used for a drinks reception if you choose a church service, the options are endless.

The Barn will be ready for our 2022 season and will sleep up to 4 people with a huge master bedroom in the stone barn as well as space for intimate wedding events.

Set your ceremony in the grounds, woodland area or at a local church...the choice is yours!

The Mill and Barn are available for smaller more intimate weddings where the Mill Room, Barn or outdoor terrace can be used for dining. With this option there is no need for an outside structure.

The Barn will be a new addition for 2022 and the Hay Shed will be new for the 2023 season. In 2023 we will be lanuching our new rustic, elegant, industrial former Hay Shed to house wedding receptions up to 150 guests.

    Beautiful, scenic, organised, helpful, perfect!

    Hallington Mill hosted our wedding in early September (2020) and we can’t say thank you enough to Elizabeth and Rob for making our day the most wonderful and special ?

    I would also caveat this review with the fact that I am not a reviewer and I write this because of the exceptional experience we have had.

    THE MILL
    The Mill itself is beautiful. All rooms are large and thoughtfully finished in keeping with the historical building and the communal areas are perfect for big family gatherings and meals. The dining room is particularly stunning and has to be seen in person!! There is a perfectly placed wood burner and the whole house has a cozy feel with multiple rooms all with really lovely views. The outside is equally as striking with a large patio, surrounded by woods and Northumberland countryside. The back garden catches the afternoon and evening sun and is perfect (as we found) for bbqs and sitting with family and friends. There is a children’s play area, which kept our exceptionally active god children (and to be honest most of our wedding party) busy, but it’s off to the side so you can keep the children in eye sight, but it doesn’t spoil the beautiful tumbling view from the patio. If walking is also on your list, Elizabeth and Rob have managed the woods and surrounding fields in such a way so you can ramble around and see the incredible views without having to venture too far. The fields have, again, been thoughtfully cultivated and are full of wild flowers, native plants and bubbling creeks. The area is also on the edge of the national dark sky reserve and the sky is BRIGHT at night. It is honestly a truly stunning place with a relaxing and homely feel.

    With the wedding you have sole use of the Mill from the Thursday so plenty of time to prep and set up. We had a lovely pre-wedding family dinner on the Thursday and then the dinning room became our war room on the Friday. There’s so much space we had multiple making and sorting areas and it make for lovely getting ready photos!

    Whilst remote, we found Corbridge really easy to get to and there are two restaurants that we found would deliver if you called! All of our guests found the Mill easily and most said the drive there (which is AMAZING!) really set the scene for the wedding and added to the excitement!

    In the context of COVID, the Mill was exceptionally clean and there was a sanitising station. They have implemented a number of COVID specific procedures and we felt exceptionally safe the entire time we were there.

    THE WEDDING
    We didn’t end up with the wedding we had initially planned (obviously as a result of COVID). For those planning outside of the COVID restrictions, the Mill is a blank canvas. We fell in love with it the second we visited and had planned a festival style wedding with 2 large tipis, 2 open bars and food trucks for 150 people. The Mill has a number of locations for different aspects of the day (woods, wild flower meadows and fields looking out over the countryside) and so you can make the day as bespoke as you like. Prior to COVID, Elizabeth was so helpful in providing recommendations and referrals to local vendors and many of those who we spoke to had been to the Mill to view the same so they knew what we were talking about. Elizabeth made what seemed like a mammoth task, much easier and more fun and her emails checking in and sending updates kept us pepped and going, especially when the pandemic happened and things became more uncertain.

    From March to July we were unsure as to whether to proceed with the wedding. We cut down to the allowed 30 people and were considering whether to proceed. Elizabeth was there every step of the way, again not only providing logistical help, talking through our different options (including postponing) and providing recommendations for alternative vendors, but was also being constantly positive whatever the outcome. Amongst near constant doom and gloom she was a needed light.

    We ended up going ahead with the wedding and quite frankly it was perfect. We used the back garden and with help from a number of vendors, (Birdcages and Butterflies - decor, Jacob & Tori - catering, Northumbria Classic Cars), we were able to have the perfect wedding. The Mill grounds not only gave a beautiful backdrop but some of our flowers and our table decs (so much ivy) were from the Mill grounds. Elizabeth and Rob were quietly and invisibly on hand throughout the lead up and the day to provide anything we needed and the day went without a hitch!

    Again we cannot thank Elizabeth and Rob and the whole Mill team (Linda was also so helpful!) for not only providing such excellent accommodation but also helping to make our wedding day so incredible!!!

    We will absolutely can not recommend highly enough!

    It was nothing short of perfect....

    We held our wedding reception in a marquee in the grounds of the Mill in September and we stayed in the Mill itself for a few days before and afterwards. It was nothing short of perfect. The Mill is a beautiful home and the grounds are equally impressive. The house was immaculate and had everything we could’ve wanted; there was even a basket of pastries waiting when we arrived. Elizabeth and Rob are wonderful hosts. Attentive and great company, while allowing you space to feel at home. The Mill has been beautifully refurbished. All of the rooms are perfectly put together, but the dining room really stands out. It’s obvious how much Rob and Elizabeth care about the Mill. We chose to have one of the most special days of our lives at the Mill because, not only is it a truly beautiful, private and unique venue, but also we knew Elizabeth and Rob would care about the day as much as we did. As soon as we can, we’ll find a reason to get back to the Mill.

    Hallington Mill is truly stunning, beautifully dec

    Hallington Mill is truly stunning, beautifully decorated throughout, spacious yet still cosy and welcoming. Every detail has been thought through, and the hosts went to great lengths to make our stay and event perfect. I’d highly recommend to any group looking for a luxurious and stylish retreat in Northumberland.
