A Very Big House in the Country

Ceilings gilded with gold, lily ponds & waterfalls, sweeping staircases, four-poster suites, a private Chapel, and that’s just the beginning. Hawkstone Hall & Gardens offers the perfect combination of character, charm, natural beauty & heritage. The 37 bedroom, 18th century, country mansion enjoys far stretching views across the Shropshire countryside and onwards to the Welsh valleys. This rural location, blended with custom-designed, elegant décor throughout, provides the most breath-taking backdrop for your exclusive wedding celebrations.

Hawkstone Hall is currently undergoing an exciting refurbishment program, having been purchased in June 2017 by wedding and hospitality specialists, The Distinctly Hospitable Group LTD.

Works are due to be complete in April 2019, when the Hall will open to the public as a luxurious 37 bedroom Hotel, serving Afternoon Tea every day & casual platters & bar snacks in the evening.

The Gardens

Our 88 acres of magnificent gardens have been lovingly nurtured by our in-house gardening team for a number of years. Perfectly pruned and kept, to the standard you would expect in the grounds of such a prestigious building, our gardens provide a wonderful setting for all of your celebrations.

To truly integrate the gardens into your special day, you can choose to have your Wedding Ceremony next to the Lily Pond & Rose Garden, or your drinks reception in The Orchard or on The Lawns. Below are some of the wonderful features for your guests to enjoy via the paths & trails of the estate;

The History

The Estate originally formed part of a Manor acquired by Sir Roland Hill MP in 1556 and remained the seat of the Hill family for almost 350 years. Hawkstone Hall is understood to date from circa 1700 with subsequent alterations between 1719 and 1725. There was then more substantial remodelling and enlargement in 1750.

The original Estate of the Hill family was broken up by 1906 when Hawkstone Hall was sold to the Liberal politician George Whiteley, later Lord Marchamley. He renovated the Hall and reduced the original wings in length. Between 1925 – 2017, the Hall was owned by the Catholic church & run as an International Pastoral and Retreat Centre with residential accommodation from 1973.

In June 2017, the Hall was acquired from the church, by The Distinctly Hospitable Group. The group carried out a major refurbishment to Weston Hall in Staffordshire in 2012, and have since been operating as a highly successful hotel, restaurant & wedding venue. More recently in 2015, they acquired & refurbished the Saracens Head, which is now operating as a gastro-pub & hotel. The refurbishment program at Hawkstone is now well underway, which will see the Hall transformed into a luxury wedding & events venue, with a total of 37 suites & bedrooms.

“I never felt that anything was too much trouble for them”

“Every part of the day was perfect, we didn’t have a worry in the world all day long.”
