About The Kedleston Country House

Kedleston Road, Kedleston
Derbyshire, DE22 5JD

The Kedleston Country House is a stunning Georgian property dating back to 1760. It was designed by renowned architect Robert Adam as a former coaching inn for Kedleston Hall, and many of the original quirks are still a prominent feature today.

After falling into disrepair, the building was lovingly restored by Derby Brewing Company and reopened in 2015 with a license for civil weddings and wedding receptions.

The Kedleston Country House stands proudly on the edge of the Kedleston Hall estate, just a stones throw away from Derby City Centre, but surrounded by the most idyllic countryside. Whether you visualise your guests enjoying a cocktail in the Georgian walled gardens, or cosying up by the roaring fireplace in the Snug with a hot mulled wine, we invite you to make this Country House your home for your wedding celebrations.


We are delighted to offer you the choice of two rooms that are both licensed for civil ceremonies, each with their own unique characteristics: The Orangery - Seating up to 70 Guests - is flooded with natural light and overlooking Derbyshire countryside. The main feature is a stunning sky light which runs along the length of the aisle. Alternatively, The Restaurant - Seating up to 50 Guests, has classic oak flooring and draped Georgian windows. The Restaurant is perfect for intimate ceremonies of up to 50 guests.
After you’ve said ‘I do...’, you are welcome to enjoy reception drinks and canapes on the terrace or in the snug. If the sun is shining, why not provide some garden games to keep your guests entertained? During this time, your photographer can whisk you away for photos in the house and its grounds - there are some gorgeous locations dotted around the property that will make stunning backdrops or your photos. Plus, with the National Trust Kedleston Hall just down the road, we can even arrange for your photos to be taken in their grounds if you wish.

Whilst you're having your photographs taken, our kitchen team will be busy preparing your wedding breakfast. Your food and drink choice is a huge part of your wedding day, which is why we strive to ensure your Wedding Breakfast is totally personal to you. We use locally sourced produce where available, alongside fresh ingredients grown in the kitchen garden, and will use their expertise to provide a menu that suits all of your needs. As Kedleston Country House is owned by Derby Brewing Company, you can rest assured that you’ll never be without a delicious drink in your hand. Specialising in cask ales and craft beers, you’ll also find a selection of lagers, wines and spirits too. You can even enjoy a glass of Kedleston Country House Gin!

For your evening celebrations, The Orangery can be transformed into the perfect space for a party of up to 120 guests. Whether you’re hoping to have a DJ or a band, the room layout is flexible enough to accommodate your needs. After dinner and dancing, why not make the most of our gorgeous boutique bedrooms so you can kick off your dancing shoes and head straight upstairs after your celebrations? 

We are delighted to offer five boutique bedrooms, each complete with roll top baths and fluffy robes. Each room has been individually decorated and packed full of Plum & Ashby toiletries, so you really can relax and while away those post-wedding blues… Our accommodation is also the perfect place for you to spend the night before your wedding*. Our bridal suite is a great size for you to prepare and get into your gown, and to have your bridesmaids in tow too!

If you have any more questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Honeysuckle & Castle team.

Perfect day!
Venue Service

By Kerry & Gary, on 13 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 15 Oct 2016

The day was absolutely perfect. As we said our vows the sun came out and was streaming through the glass roof of The Orangery. We’ve had lots of comments that the food was the best people had had at a wedding and the service was outstanding. The Orangery is the perfect spot for a wedding and its beautiful surroundings meant we achieved an intimate and relaxed feeling throughout the day.

Brilliant food

The food was brilliant. the chef was very accommodating, happy to include a personalised menu of our personal favourites alongside their own seasonal menus.

Brilliant Wedding Experience!
Venue Service

We booked a show round at The Kedleston Country House as my mum had been and said how beautiful the new renovation is. We saw Robyn the co-ordinator. She was really lovely and showed us round, talking through every detail of our day and how it would run. She seemed to really care about what we wanted as a couple, and special ideas we had to include. The honeymoon suite is to die for!! Gorgeous massive bed, and amazing roll top bath! The quote came through the next day, and after a couple of changes (we upgraded to a cocktail which we get to help create for our guests) we've booked. Can't wait for my big day now. Roll on August! Can't recommend The Kedleston enough.
