Walcot Hall is Georgian mansion, formerly the residence of Lord Clive of India. As a private family home it offers a wealth of character and individuality to every wedding that takes place here. Set in splendour within a country estate, it overlooks a mile-long lake and rolling parkland. To the rear are extensive gardens and an Arboretum, with pools, a fountain and croquet lawn to mention but a few. Should you choose to host your wedding at Walcot Hall you can be sure of a day that is not packaged in any way.

In the first instance, you are offered the rare luxury of time; the Ballroom and grounds can be hired for an exclusive 48 hour period and you can have your entire wedding party staying with you on site because we can accommodate up to 100 guests in the warmer months! Secondly, there is no designated supplier list, giving you the freedom of choice to create a wedding that suits you perfectly.
