Woodthorpe Hall is a private 17th century country house set in 2.5 acres of spectacular formal gardens in a very secluded corner of North Derbyshire on the edge of the Peak District, but conveniently close to Sheffield (South Yorkshire), and Chesterfield (north Derbyshire)
We offer the gardens as a venue for your special day, giving you the choice of marquee style, catering arrangements and any other service you may require. We hold events with exclusive use for you and your guests, allowing access during the previous week for preparations.
Our aim is to support you to arrange your day in whatever way you want, and we consider very careful and detailed planning is essential for the smooth running of your event. We offer every assistance with this. Each event is individually tailored to your wishes and we are happy to accommodate any more unusual requests.
We no longer offer to hold a legal ceremony here, but we are able to offer an unusual purpose-made location for any non-legal ceremony in our Cider Press. This is a stone open fronted building incorporating a 19th century ciderpress still very much in use. 80 guests can be seated under a covered area with ample extra space for guests willing to stand.
The gardens provide a superb backdrop for your photographs and can accommodate a marquee reception for up to 150 guests.
We are also able to offer free basic camping space for any guests who wish to stay after the festivities. (This includes caravans/camper vans)
With respect to our neighbours, we can no longer allow the use of fireworks, and we ask that bands and disco’s finish by 11.00pm but allowing music to continue at garden level through our own system till midnight.
