About Eastnor Castle wedding venue

Eastnor is a dramatic, fairytale castle situated in a 5000-acre estate in the Malvern Hills within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The castle is surrounded by a lake, deer park and arboretum, with magnificent views of the rolling Herefordshire countryside.

The Castle is a licensed wedding venue for civil weddings and partnerships for up to 80 guests which take place in the Gothic Drawing Room. There is also a beautiful village church within walking distance which can seat up to 150 guests.

The Great Hall, with its 60 foot high ceiling and roaring log fires in winter months, is an imposing yet intimate space for the reception, and conveniently connects to The Octagon Saloon with French windows onto the terrace lawns where drinks and live music can be enjoyed with lake & surrounding countryside views.

The State Dining Room will seat up to 80 guests at round tables for a served wedding breakfast and the Great Hall can seat up to 150 guests for a larger banquet. If you are also planning an evening party, we can arrange for a dance floor to be laid in the Octagon Saloon which is ideal for dancing.

Fireworks can be fired from the far side of the lake to finish off the evening with a memorable bang. As they illuminate up into the lake, it looks truly spectacular.

The bride, groom and their close family and friends can stay overnight in one of the 12 luxurious and individual guest bedrooms.

Type of Cuisine:

Good food is an important part of any wedding, and we are proud of the exceptionally high standard and wide variety of menus that are designed to cater for a range of tastes.

My note today is to let you know that we could not have booked a better place or a better team. The castle speaks for itself and you may remember that I had reservations about the darkness of the colours in some of the rooms. You were exactly right when...
