Full Description
Dating back to 1066, the estate is believed to be the extensive Staffordshire woodland noted in the Doomsday Book. The Grade II listed Queen Anne residence has been home to five generations of the Williams family - and their heritage remains firmly at its heart today. Over the past 10 years, in the hands of its current owners, the picturesque and secluded estate has been renovated and reimagined to become a highly-sought after venue for weddings, private events and corporate retreats. Offering an abundance of versatile event spaces accommodating from 50 to 650 guests, Alrewas Hayes is equally suited to large-scale celebrations through to more intimate weddings. Bathed in natural light and with a flourish of period touches throughout, The Orangery is an events space that brings an air of elegance to every occasion. Located within the wing of the house and featuring a distinctive curved ceiling, arched windows and opening out on to The Courtyard, it's the ideal setting for wedding ceremonies. Accommodating from 60 guests up to 220, The Lakeside is set overlooking the estate's private lake, woodlands and wheat fields. A blank canvas for the creative, The Lakeside can be transformed for any type of occasion and offers direct access to both The Courtyard and Williams Bar. Accessed via its own private walkway, the Great Barn is the largest space within Alrewas Hayes, accommodating events from 220 to 650 guests. Reminiscent of a cool airport hanger from the outside yet sleek and contemporary on the inside, it's a place where the unimaginable is possible. The Great Barn houses state-of-the-art production facilities including image mapping, world-class lighting and sound and staging systems. Alrewas Hayes is available to hire on an exclusive basis seven days a week, throughout the year.

Our Intimate Wedding
Where can I start? From start to finish the team at Alrewas Hayes have been amazing! This was the third venue we viewed back in 2019 and we fell in love straight away and couldn’t wait to set a date with them! Bonnie, Toby, Amie and the rest of the team have been absolutely incredible. We were the first wedding to take place in 2021, post the latest lockdown. The team made us feel so relaxed during the planning stage and couldn’t do enough for us, they were all outstanding. They helped us navigate through the COVID restrictions to ensure our day could still go ahead safely. We had an outdoor reception and the set up completely blew me away when we arrived! The venue looked absolutely stunning. It truly was the most wonderful day/night with our closest family and we’ll be forever grateful to the team at Alrewas Hayes for helping us make it happen. Wish we could do it all over again! Us and our guests loved every single moment.

Thank You Alrewas Hayes!
Where can I start? From start to finish the service has been amazing! Alrewas Hayes was the first venue we visited when we started to look and we fell in love straight away! The grounds, scenery and the interior were beautiful we knew it was the one. The staff made our wedding experience the most memorable. Easy, simple and free flowing. We had endless comments and still do till this day about how stunning our venue was. Our guests enjoyed their day! Alrewas were easy to work with not only with us but the rest of our suppliers and took care of things we didn't have time to on the day. We also used the wall mapping in the grand pavilion and it was sensational!! If you're looking to get married here, you have found the perfect place!! Wish we could do it all over again!!

What an outstanding Wedding Venue! The staff are so friendly and accommodating, nothing too much trouble. The venue really has a wow factor. There is a beautiful little lake just outside the Marquee and there are plenty of places to take pictures. The flowers on the tables were stunning also! I would recommend this place to anyone!

Amazing Family Wedding
Family wedding. Lovely backdrop to any wedding, very pretty, stunning setting, very friendly helpful staff. Ceremony room did get rather hot & would have been good idea if they had opened the doors leading to the terrace .House made a beautiful back drop for the wedding photos. Marquee was dressed to perfection, bar staff were on the ball. Food was delicious. The weather was lovely so the wedding guests could enjoy the well manicured grounds & enjoy mingling on the terrace. Venue very clean & well presented.
