Celebrate one of the most important days of your like at the West Retford Hotel. Set within five acres of landscaped gardens, the former private country manor house offers all you could need for a wonderful wedding celebration.
Our stunning gardens provide a beautiful backdrop for your important photographs all year round; the charming flower beds, antique band stand and rose arbours look stunning in the background. You could follow the stone steps leading to the secret sunken garden or wander through the arch and down the woodland path to find the four season’s statues. The garden also boasts an enchanting 150-year-old flowering tulip tree which is a treat to behold. Ceremonies can be held in the garden beneath the ornate pagoda.
You and your guests can make the most of the extensive patios, which wrap around the hotel, with a few drinks. The Chatsworth bar and lounge offers comfortable seating and easy access for drinks.
The Shelley Suite and Grove Suite are elegant settings for your reception. The Shelley ballroom is traditionally decorated in the manor house style with crystal chandeliers, ornate cornices and high ceilings. The suite can accommodate up to 160 seated guests and up to 200 for an evening reception.
Alternatively, the first-floor Grove Suite is ideal for smaller events. The room overlooks the gardens, and its low ceilings and spot lighting creates an intimate atmosphere. The suite can seat 60 guests and can accommodate up to 80 for your evening reception. The Rufford bar and lounge is located adjacent to the Grove Suite.
We offer some fantastic fairy-tale wedding packages which have been designed to suit a range of budgets, ideas and styles – we have a package to suit everyone.
When your day comes to an end, the hotel can accommodate your overnight guests in 63 en-suite bedrooms, each with contemporary facilities and traditional comforts. There is even a luxurious bridal suite, elegantly decorated with silk soft furnishings, four-poster antique bed, a moon-lit bath and a double shower for the perfect first night of married life. As a gift from us, hotel-engraved robes are yours to use and take.
