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 Favourite Day
Our wedding was everything and more that we could have dreamed of. The team made our day so memorable, the service was incredible and the food was divine! We had been waiting 2 additional years to get married due to Covid, the team were so helpful, professional and considerate. It was like we were planning the day with friends when the planners are just as excited about your details as you are, nothing was ever too much trouble. All our guests said it was the best wedding they had attended, everything you want from your special day. Thank you to all the team at Alrewas Hayes, you’ll always hold a special place in our heart x

Thank You Alrewas Hayes
To the whole Alrewas Hayes team, On behalf of myself and my husband, we both just wanted to say a huge thank you for the most utterly perfect experience we had with you. We don’t have words enough to say how much we loved our special day. We also wanted to personally say a big thank you to Emma M, who we can’t thank enough for making our incredible experience even more perfect. I’m sure you already know this, but she is a real asset to your team, a beautiful person inside and out and brilliant at what she does. She was the calm in our storm when things got delayed, nothing was too much trouble and she really helped me in particular feel at ease. What a lovely girl! Keep doing what you’re doing Emma. We knew before we had even visited that Alrewas was the one, but nothing prepared us for it’s beauty, the fine details and just how much we would fall in love. We couldn’t have asked for a better day. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Kindest regards and all the best with your future weddings, (We wish we could do it again!!!!) C and A.

Best day, best people
Wow! What a wonderful day we had, made so personal and magical from the day we first went to visit the venue. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Amie, our wedding planner, was incredible! Friendly, full of advice and so organised and on it! Every member of staff was marvellous, full of smiles. When my dress broke, Amie fixed it. When I forgot my printed out vows, Amie sorted it. Nothing was too much trouble. It was the perfect day thanks to all the wonderful people at the venue. Also, the food was outstanding! Everyone said it was the best wedding food they’d ever had - including the photographer!! Cannot recommend Alrewas Hayes and their team highly enough!

Alrewas Hayes
I had attended two weddings at Alrewas Hayes and loved the venue. After getting engaged in 2019, I went to view the venue and can’t believe I booked it for my own wedding. The venue is stunning and just cannot be compared to local venues. The venue is so versatile and it was clear to me that two weddings held at Alrewas Hayes cannot be compared. I loved that the venue was exclusively ours for the day - this meant I was able to utilise the space and ended up using the orangery for my civil ceremony, the lakeside marquee for an afternoon tea, the courtyard for a canapé drinks reception and the great barn for a huge reception party. The venue is so pretty that it can require as little or as much decoration as you want. Bonnie and Toby are always investing in the upkeep of the venue and are always adding new features to keep the venue ahead of its time. All of my guests loved the venue. My husband and I booked the honeymoon suite. I highly recommend this for all couples. We came down in the morning to breakfast and the honeymoon treatment allowed us to hold onto the buzz we had from the wedding. We felt so spoilt and of course - breakfast was delicious! Unfortunately my original wedding day was booked during the first lockdown but Bonnie and Toby would always respond to any emails promptly to rearrange. Whenever I needed a chat, they were always happy to give me their time and speak with me on the phone. Regardless of how bad the situation got as a result of Covid, Bonnie always remained positive and passionate to ensure I felt valued and remained excited as a bride. They honestly did everything they could have to work with me and remain flexible to ensure that I got the wedding I originally planned for or where I choose to go ahead with restriction, the closest thing to what we planned. The day was absolutely special because of this. I cannot recommend the venue enough and I cannot thank the team at Alrewas Hayes for all that they did to make my wedding special and important.

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!!
