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.

Services Offered

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!

Our wedding at Walcot Hall was everything we had envisioned and more! Despite the horrendous weather (and a written off car!), Walcot was the perfect location for our weekend wedding. Emma and Rhea were so helpful throughout the booking process and made the day flow seamlessly. Every single one of our guests was in awe of Walcot's beauty and quirkiness! Having our dogs involved in our day was so special. We have created such special memories and cannot wait to come back for anniversaries.

Perfect, just Perfect!

Walcot Hall is perfect, we had an absolutely amazing time and could not have wished for a better wedding. It made such a difference having Emma there on the day so we didn’t have to worry about timings or organisation, and you did an amazing job at keeping things running (despite all the crazy French people that were like herding cats!!) All of the support and help throughout the whole process was perfect. We are so glad that we chose Walcot Hall, loads of our guests have said that it was the best wedding venue they’ve ever been to, and we agree! The bar staff were fantastic too - they were all really friendly and great fun. And thank you to the cleaners as well for sorting out all the mess!

April wedding

Walcot Hall was the perfect venue for our wedding. Every ran smoothly thanks to Emma who was fantastic all day. A gorgeous location for the ceremony, reception and for evening party. We stayed the night before and had a night in the pub at the bottom of the drive too which everyone enjoyed. I can't recommend Walcott Hall and their fab team enough!

The most amazing weekend

We initially wanted a fun weekend away for our guests so started searching for a venue in a beautiful location with a variety of accommodation. We knew as soon as we arrived at the drive of Walcot Hall we knew that it was perfect.

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!

April Wedding

We got married at Walcot Hall in April and it was honestly, the best day of our lives. For starters, Walcot Hall is beautiful. It is situated in one of the most picturesque places in the world with a homely yet grand feel with its quirky and wonderful accommodation. There are many spaces throughout the grounds that we could have decided to tie the knot, and opted for the lawn with it's very own impressive fountain. Aside from the fact this place looks amazing, the staff (in particular, our gorgeous wedding coordinator, Lucieanne) are fantastic. Lucieanne knows her stuff and although she has most likely done countless weddings before, came up with some innovative ideas to help make the day feel like less of a cliche. Walcot Hall does not restrict you on how you run your wedding. Unlike other wedding venues that we looked at, who force you to book a certain package or use a certain caterer, Walcot Hall gives you the option to hire just the ballroom and grounds and bring in your own people. We had originally thought we would go for this option, but in the end opted for their other package because it was such amazing value for money (another great thing about this place is they don't add an extra zero to the end of the bill purely because you're getting hitched!). The second option includes the ballroom and grounds, the honeymoon suite for the wedding night, wedding breakfast and drinks for the table, canapés and reception drinks, toast drinks, a DJ and even table flowers. If we could do it all again, we would! We will definitely be back to try out glamping on our anniversary!

Autumn wedding

The essentials for our wedding were to have lots of accommodation, as well as being able to have the venue for 48hrs. Walcot Hall delivered on this and so much more...As soon as we started driving up THAT drive, and began to see the magic of Walcot Hall the excitement did not stop.

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

From first contact the Walcot Hall team were absolutely brilliant. I fell in love with the venue almost immediately and was ready to book, there and then!

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

Walcot Hall is the most friendliest place i have ever come across, the staff are warm and will do whatever they can to help they go above and beyond the call of duty. The venue is beautiful you cant fault it one bit. Stunning gardens, ballroom. Its one of a kind, all our guests said they have never seen such a lovely place. We return every year for a holiday. Its a hidden gem!

We feel privileged in being allowed to use Walcot Hall to host our wedding day. It is so beautiful and I can't quite believe we were so lucky to have the perfect setting for our perfect day. I'm already missing my trips to Shropshire and Maria deserves a special mention for her guidance and friendship - knowing she was there to help made such a difference.

Enormous beauty and wonderful people who work here

I don't know how we can express how grateful we are for everything the was done to help us, or to explain how wonderful our stay at Walcot Hall was.
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

I cannot stop enthusing about my wedding day at Walcot Hall. The venue is impressive, the Ballroom is magnificent, the grounds are beautiful and quirky and the staff, particularly Maria, is the icing on the cake. This family home oozes personality and individuality and is not your run of the mill wedding venue. Myself, my wife and all of our guests fell in love with the charm of the place, where we went boating on the lake the evening before the wedding, had a scavenger hunt in the gardens during the morning before the ceremony, enjoyed dancing in the Ballroom 'till the early hours and provided guests with a post wedding brunch before leaving for the real world. I want to get married every weekend and we''ll definately be back to visit this summer.

Walcot Hall Venue is FANTASTIC

We spent a wonderful weekend at Walcot for our daughter's wedding. Guests travelled from Germany, Austria and Australia and it was a perfect setting for a relaxed country wedding. Many guests had not experienced a civil wedding before and were impressed with the personal and moving ceremony within the beautiful Hall. We all have lovely memories of Wedding weekend and also super photographs. Walcot must be a photographers delight and we were particularly lucky to have sunshine too.
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.

My daughter and her husband organised the most magical, memorable wedding celebration at Walcot Hall. The whole ambience of this beautiful home seemed to cast a spell on everyone, allowing the usual family tensions to melt away and enabling everyone to relax and enjoy themselves. There was a great deal of preparation to do when we arrived which meant calling on the extremely smiley and helpful staff and Maria orchestrated the ceremony perfectly.

This is a wonderful place to celebrate

Problems caused by a widespread circle of friends was always going to be difficult to overcome but once Sarah and Will had discovered this lovely home everything became possible. The ability to move into splendid accommodation and the chance to stay for two days meant that attending the wedding suddenly became easy. Clearly the setting is idyllic, however, it must be said that it is not just that Walcot Hall is wonderful, the people who helped to make the event such a success must be mentioned. Everyone with whom we had contact was pleasant, helpful and kind. Indeed they were as committed as we were to ensure that all would go well.

Walcot offers complete flexibility in all choices

Toby and I chose walcot hall for our wedding because it offered us complete flexibility in all our choices. We live overseas and the on site accommodation allowed our friends and family to come and catch up for the whole weekend.
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.
