Set within 40 acres of parkland in a verdant valley with the River Stour meandering through is the grand Ettington Park Hotel. Inside couples will find historic architecture, wondrous ceilings, ornate chandeliers and floor-to-ceiling windows which present breathtaking views of the grounds. There are also several bedrooms for guests to choose from, extravagant lounges and inspiring suites. Outside there are plenty of places to take photographs, including the impressive turrets, neo-Gothic brickwork, classic arched windows and on-site Norman Church and Orangery.
The South Room has large sash windows overlooking the manicured gardens and Normal Chapel. The beautiful wood-panelled ceiling is illuminated by gold chandeliers, and the Duke of Essex stone fireplace makes this room feel grand and luxurious. It can accommodate 100 friends and family for the ceremony and 60 for the evening celebration.
Alternatively, The Bell Tower can be used. Capable of holding 100 guests, it’s tucked away in the grounds and has a grand Normal Chapel frame that couples can get married under. The Orangery can also hold 100 people and boasts intricately carved arches, manicured Victorian gardens and lots of natural light.
The Library has 18th-century features, oak-wood bookcases filled with an array of colourful literature and space for 60 loved ones.
