The Scole Inn Hotel is then the most ideal option out there. This Grade I Listed was built in 1655 as a coaching inn, originally named The White Hart, for horse-drawn carriages, welcoming up to forty coaches a day in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

Charles II ‘Broke his Fast’ at the hotel, Lord Nelson slept here and highwayman John Belcher is said to have ridden his horse up the stairs to evade the law.

As a licensed wedding venue, we have the Stag room in the main building that can host up to 60 seated. For a bigger guest list, we have our stunning marquee with all the drapes, frills, and new outdoor gardens that can host up to 150 guests seated and it's available to hire exclusively for your big day.

There are 26 bedrooms at the Scole Inn Hotel. With original fireplaces and a variety of rooms, including four poster beds, family, doubles, and twin rooms, you'll get a taste of old-world charm here.

Short Notice Wedding - Amazing!

Me and my partner wanted to get Married as fast as possible and that we did! Jodie and Yiannis made sure everything on our wedding day was perfect! Their replies were speedy, straight to the point and knew exactly what we were going for. Couldn’t have wanted anything more.

Excellent service throughout

An excellent service from The Scole Hotel. A picturesque building and scenery paired with exemplary staff and management made our special day something to behold. I would definitely recommend and encourage anyone who's looking for somewhere to host their wedding to go to the Scole Inn Hotel.
