A Georgian Gem, timeless and classy, and the ideal place to celebrate your nuptials in true “country-house” style – just moments from the A1, but in a world of its own!
Northumberland, , england
As you drive through the gates and crunch along the sweeping gravel drive, to be greeted by this honey stone, wisteria-clad, Georgian country house, with its striped lawns and grounds featuring mature trees, surrounded by ancient woodlands, you can be forgiven for forgetting for one moment that you are only minutes away from the A1, near Morpeth.
The hamlet of Eshott itself is only a short drive from the Northumbrian coast. Once you arrive here, you enter a different world....
Eshott Hall is the ideal venue in which to embrace the spirit of the ‘original country house’ weekend. Due to its intimate size, each wedding here is ‘exclusive use’, without incurring a hefty premium which normally goes with this privilege.
The close-knit team and their lady General Manager offer friendly yet professional service, bespoke to your individual needs. A warm welcome awaits, the Hall despite its grandeur feels somewhat homely, allowing everyone to kick back and feel relaxed, to make the most of this lovely house and surroundings, which include tennis courts and a croquet lawn.
The beautiful hallway features a cantilever staircase, with a William Morris, jewel- coloured, stained glass window providing an elegant backdrop to the bride, as she walks down the stairs for a breathtaking ‘reveal’ on the day.
Smaller ceremonies have been known to take place in the Hallway itself, or the Library, or Drawing Room. Couples have plenty of choice, depending on the size of wedding and their individual taste and style preferences.
Traditional couples may also like the idea of walking to the Village Reading Rooms, which was once a Methodist Chapel to tie the knot, followed by a romantic stroll back to the House for the reception.
Those preferring a more organic style can tap into the spirit of the magical woodland area, with an aisle created from tree bark, or the Victorian fernery and ornate gazebo - a botanical backdrop for an outdoor wedding, or a novel setting for a summer drinks reception.
The Ballroom is a magnificent space – full of natural light with its French windows onto the gardens, and ornate gilt mirrors – it also has its own private bar......let the celebrations begin!
Once the party’s over - several rooms feature four poster bed and roll top baths for a romantic first night and guests are spoilt for choice with a selection of bedrooms and suites in the main Hall, as well as The Lodge, and a collection of cottages only a stroll away from the main event.
