Dating back to the early 16th century, Stanbrook Abbey Hotel is a former Grade II listed monastery which has retained many of its original features, including dramatic stone cloisters, Gothic stained-glass windows and a 100ft bell tower. Standing at the foot of the Malvern Hills, the property is located within a magnificent 26-acre estate with beautifully kept walled gardens and a path lined with weeping willows, leading to a tranquil and secluded lake that’s perfect for outdoor weddings.
The hotel recently underwent a multi-million-pound renovation which introduced The Refectory restaurant and eight new bedrooms on the second floor and a further seven in the original schoolhouse bringing the grand hotel to 70 bedrooms.
Celebrate in style
Ceremonies can take place in The Callow Great Hall. This former chapel is the ideal setting for traditional weddings, with a captivating history and charming interior that would make a grand backdrop for any wedding.
St Anne’s Hall (80) can also be used. Ideal for smaller weddings, it includes the use of the Library Bar and Balcony where your guests can relax and enjoy the views.
The cosy East Room has an open fireplace and oak-beamed ceiling with room for 50 loved ones.
Alternatively, the Brides Manor Lounge is available. Connected to the Callow Great Hall via a cloister and close to the tranquil Garden of Remembrance, the lounge of this Georgian-style manor house has private access and is ideal for cosy ceremonies.
Receptions take place in The Garden Pavilion, a stone’s throw from the picturesque Willow Lake, which can seat up to 280 friends and family.
The hotel’s 13 function spaces, including a wine cellar and games room, reignite the historic feel of the abbey.
