Walcot Hall is a hidden gem of a wedding venue located in the heart of the Shropshire Hills. The estate has a rich history dating back to the 1700s and, in recent years, has been brought back to its former glory by the current owners.
Facilities and Capacity
Couples have the option to welcome their guests on-site with some informal drinks, or a BBQ the night before the wedding. The next morning, guests can dine on a leisurely breakfast, fueling them for the day ahead. The happy couple can hold their wedding breakfast in the large turquoise Ballroom, which can seat up to 120 guests, and an evening reception for up to 200. This incredible room features large windows and a plaster ceiling adorned with stunning chandeliers. While natural light pours in during the day, after hours, the ambient space radiates romance. The Main Hall in the house is licensed for indoor wedding ceremonies, and there is also a beautiful summer house in the gardens where couples can exchange vows in the warmer months. The vast gardens also have ample space for mingling, a drinks reception, games, and photo opportunities.
Couples can hire the wedding venue site exclusively for a full 48 hours over a weekend or during the week. This enables the newlyweds to make the most of their wedding getaway, enjoying precious time spent with friends and family. While there is no in-house catering team, couples are welcome to bring in outside vendors and suppliers of their choosing. Walcot Hall's wedding coordinator can assist in arranging the details of the celebration.
Walcot Hall has a variety of self-catering accommodations on-site. These range from traditional cottages in the old stable yard to our Victorian Tin Chapel in the woods, a converted timber framed.

Everything we envisioned and more!
Perfect, just Perfect!
The most amazing weekend
Every member of staff we had contact with were so friendly and helpful and made from planning to the wedding itself great fun.
Our day was filled with sunshine, croquet, dancing, eating, drinking and toasted marshmallows and the team organised it seamlessly. The greatest of beginnings to married life ... we’ll be back!
We decided to opt for the “wedding package” that Walcot offered, which we couldn’t recommend enough. The caterers were so flexible with what we needed and all of the food was incredible!
It may be a cliché but our wedding weekend was 100% our best weekend EVER. Even after the wedding is over, we plan to keep coming back to our Happy Place as often as we can…
I cant recommend Walcot Hall highly enough
On the wedding weekend, Caitlin talked us through every stage, she thought of all the things we’d forgotten in our excitement and was there throughout the day to help coordinate and sort out any last minute requests. It was like having a friend help me more than having a wedding coordinator!
I can’t recommend Walcot Hall highly enough.
The perfect dream
Enormous beauty and wonderful people who work here
The weekend and the Saturday evening were everything we could have hoped for and then some.
Walcot is of course very beautiful and the ballroom is an exquisite venue but what makes it so special is the kindness and generosity of all the staff and people that live and work there. From the beginning we received nothing but enormous help and it is this that made our weekend so very wonderful and magical.
We shall return as I'm sure will many of our guests.
A dream weekend
Walcot Hall Venue is FANTASTIC
Maria made our choices of caterers, florist, bar, etc. very easy. We just acted on her advise and could not fault anything. Walcot truely is a very special place and we feel very lucky to have shared in it.
The happiest day of my life.
This is a wonderful place to celebrate
Walcot offers complete flexibility in all choices
Walcot hall is set in beautiful grounds and we enjoyed our guests company outdoors, across champagne glasses, volleyball nets and croquet hoops.
Maria and the other Walcot staff listen to what you would like and help make it happen. On our actual wedding day I felt totally relaxed (after the ceremony!) and simply enjoyed the best day ever.
