About The Moat House Hotel

The Moat House is a picturesque wedding venue in the heart of the English countryside. Nestled within the village of Acton Trussell, our waterside location and historic Grade II listed Farmhouse make the perfect setting for your country wedding.

 

Beautiful Spaces

Perfect for more intimate ceremonies, the Colin Lewis Suite seats up to 70 guests under the atmospheric oak beams of the oldest part of the building, the Grade II listed Farmhouse. Flooded with natural light, The Orangery is usually home to our 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 our grounds by taking your vows against the backdrop of our picturesque Lakeside Pergola. With views out over the canal and stunning Staffordshire countryside, the Acton Suite is the ideal blank canvas for larger ceremonies, holding up to 130 guests. We are licensed to hold civil marriages and civil partnerships, or if you’re thinking of a church ceremony, Acton Trussell’s 800 year old Anglican church - St James’ - is just a few hundred yards away.

 

Award-winning Food

The head chef and kitchen team behind our double AA rosette restaurant deliver delicious fine dining and feasting for you and your guests. Our carefully developed menus provide exceptional choice, with a focus on a classically cooked British cuisine that makes use of fantastic local produce. The talented kitchen brigade are happy to cater for different tastes, styles and dietary requirements and work with you to design a bespoke menu for your wedding day.

    Outstanding and beautiful venue and staff

    This venue is so beautiful with the oak beams and a more intimate feel to the Colin Lewis suite and the spacious and fresh feel to the Acton suite. The grounds and surrounding area in which the venue is situated within are absolutely stunning.

    As much as we fell in love with the venue itself, it was the staff that work here that definitely swayed it for us. From the first time we visited The Moat House to view the venue, they could not have been more helpful and that didn’t just stop there. They continued to help and guide us through our planning, was at the end of every email, phone call and visit (Which was probably more often than usual with Coronavirus and were so accommodating to every changes that happened).

    We had visited many other venues beforehand and just felt like another couple that were looking to use their venue to get married. However, The Moat House were so personal and genuinely cared and wanted to make our day perfect.

    We have felt so welcomed by them and they could not have done anymore for us. The Moat House made our day so special and we felt like V.I.P’s.

    Even though we had a restricted wedding because of Coronavirus. We did not feel like we had missed out on anything that we would have done had it not been restricted and that is down to The Moat House and their lovely staff. Our day could not have been more magical.
