Walcot Hall Full Description
Walcot Hall is a Georgian country house steeped in character and history. The building alone makes for one of the most unusual wedding venues in Shropshire, however Walcot Hall is also a family home. Its business is not exclusively weddings, however it is no surprise that it ranks as one of Shropshire’s top wedding reception venues. The Hall may be a grand historic house but it’s certainly not imposing. We guarantee you will love the eclectic furnishings and rustic romance of the rambling estate, and the masses of curiosities will certainly get your guests talking… We know that your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life which is why we work hard to make your time at Walcot Hall memorable, magical and above all, unique. We work alongside you through the wedding planning process and offer a friendly and relaxed approach. We want you to have the best day possible so will endeavour to turn your wedding ideas (and Pinterest boards) into reality! We know we’re not a 5* hotel, which is why we don’t try to be! But we can promise a stay full of fun, character, surprise and intrigue for you and all of your guests. Having your wedding party with you for the whole weekend (we can accommodate up to 110 guests onsite in our holiday cottages, cabins and glamping accommodation) means you can utilise the space the estate has to offer and make the most of your time at one of Shropshire’s most unique wedding venues.

A magical place to get married!
We got married at Walcot Hall last weekend and it was a wonderful experience. Rhea (our wedding co-ordinator) was fantastic. She went above and beyond for us and was always kind, patient and warm. We were thrilled with how everything turned out and we are so happy we chose this magical place to get married. Thank you!

An absolutely superb venue for a wedding
An absolutely superb venue for a wedding. Loads of different accommodation - ours was superb & adjoined the main hall. For those who like camping, there are various yurts & huts in the grounds as well. Our party had a really superb weekend here in these peaceful and tranquil grounds. Highly recommended.

The best experience working along side a venue
We've performed at so many wedding venues in the UK as a live band and Walcot Hall was among the best, if not the best experience we've had working alongside a venue. They could not have been more helpful in accommodating us and the actual space itself is something else. Absolutely beautiful and all of the staff are so helpful. We had an awesome night, thanks to Lucieanne for your help in the lead up and on the day itself :)

Couldn't have asked for better!
When I booked our wedding here I loved the laid-back vibe and everything I asked if it would be possible to do was met with great enthusiasm and a 'make it work' attitude. At other venues I had looked at everything seemed to be against one rule or another. Walcot Hall allowed us the flexibility to have the day we wanted. We had a better weekend than we could have imagined and all of our guests loved it too. We have already had two of our guests ask if we would mind if they also get married here, they fell in love with Walcot just like us!

A Great Venue!
I got married at Walcott Hall this year and the venue is great. The Ballroom Hall is an amazing space for the reception, and with the weather being good the ceremony was held in the garden area which is a beautiful outdoor space. The team at Walcott ensured the day ran smoothly, it was well organised and they were very helpful - both on the day and during the planning stages.
