Located on 30 acres of woodland is The Upper Estate House, a castle wedding venue situated in Derbyshire, England. This venue is a one-of-a-kind hunting lodge nestled in the heart of the National Trust Kinder Estate. This 15th-century medieval estate provides you with a unique opportunity to host a fully exclusive wedding in the privacy of the countryside. The Upper Estate House has since been restored to give you the best of both worlds with its historical touches and contemporary finish. Enjoy a romantic celebration in the quiet moorlands at this intimate castle wedding venue.

Facilities and Capacities

The Upper Estate House is available for private hire for an entire weekend so that you can enjoy your special occasion to the fullest. Although they specialise in smaller weddings, they can host celebrations with up to 130 attendees. If you have your heart set on a luxurious intimate occasion, their castle can accommodate up to 28 guests for your stay. At The Upper Estate House, you have a selection of four spaces, all licensed to hold civil ceremonies. Choose between a ceremony indoors in their spectacular House and Hall, outdoors in the courtyard beneath the Clock Tower or at the Solstice Tower overlooking Kinder Reservoir.

Services Offered

The Upper Estate House offers their staff's undivided attention and assistance for an extravagant all-inclusive stay. If you wish to spend your celebration on the grounds, the venue has two large bespoke tipis available for use for a wedding feast. The Upper Estate House is partnered with Vanilla InAll Seasons, who can provide your wedding catering on the day. For a truly tailored experience, they can offer you signature drinks and bespoke Kinder Cocktails from their fully stocked bar. Their wine cellar contains over 75 wines which can also be ordered in advance for your celebration.
