Exclusive, small wedding venue in Blanchland, Northumberland


Say 'I do'

Hankering after a house party? We can grant your wish with exclusive use, welcoming a congregation of 60 for your civil ceremony and up to 100 for your evening do, with the run of our 21 bedrooms, all of our dining spaces and our lovely gardens.

Looking for a bigger bash for up to 120? You can opt for a takeover of the whole estate, complete with a boho tipi tent in the garden, overlooking the moors beyond... and with plenty of extra room to let your hair down!

Fancy something smaller? For a more intimate wedding, The Gatehouse seats up to 18 with a dose of historical style. Our crenellated treasure (across the village square) was once gatekeeper to the moors and protector of Blanchland Abbey. Now home to a welcoming open kitchen, cosy dining space, lounge for mingling and fireplace for snuggling, take it all over for the ultimate small wedding party.

Make it all yours

All of our large weddings are exclusive-use with use of our ancient home and gorgeous grounds for true countryside romance...
