Facilities and Capacity
Perfect for intimate ceremonies, the Colin Lewis Suite seats up to 70 guests under the atmospheric oak beams of the oldest part of the building. Flooded with natural light, the orangery is usually home to the award-winning restaurant, but you can choose to make it the setting for an unforgettably romantic ceremony. If your heart is set on an outdoor wedding, you can make the most of the verdant grounds by saying your vows against the backdrop of the charming lakeside pergola. With views over the canal and lush Staffordshire countryside, the Acton Suite is the ideal blank canvas for larger ceremonies, holding 130 guests. This beautiful venue is licensed for civil marriages and civil partnerships. However, if you'd like a traditional church ceremony, Acton Trussell's 800-year-old Anglican church, St James', is just a few hundred yards away. From the 16th-century farmhouse, iconic horse chestnut tree, and quaint canal bridges to the snowdrop and bluebell carpeted woodland; this estate offers a breathtaking atmosphere.
