Our Venue Hire Prices and Information

Set within the Chatsworth estate, with breathtaking views across the rolling landscape of the Ecclesbourne Valley, Shottle Hall’s setting is second to none. The beauty and tranquillity of our location attracts couples who want to marry in an enchanting, natural setting and offer their guests some of the best views in Derbyshire. And, of course, the picturesque setting makes both a lovely backdrop for photographs and a stunning start to your special day.

Shottle Hall Country Views The house itself, a Victorian country house, boasts four magnificent acres of landscaped gardens and 14 acres of parkland. Lavishly refurbished, the hall has been appointed with a fusion of traditional elegance and contemporary design and has a light-drenched, yet homely appeal. If required, couples can have exclusive use of the house and gardens to entertain guests as if it was their own. In fact, we encourage wedding guests to think of Shottle Hall as their home for the day. Our civil ceremony license means you can choose to host your whole day at Shottle Hall or we offer the flexibility for you to join us for your wedding breakfast and celebrations after your ceremony.

Wedding reception venue The Orangery restaurant can accommodate 80-90 guests for the wedding breakfast and 150 for an evening celebration. With its starlit ceiling, full length windows and baby Grand Piano (that can even play itself), the Orangery offers a modern extension of the traditional house. We are also delighted to offer the Coach House Marquee, which can accommodate 150 guests for the wedding breakfast and 250 for an evening celebration. When the sun goes down the enchanting starlit ceiling in the marquee sets the scene for your evening entertainment. Or why not get married in the romantic Garden Pavilion, so you can enjoy the magic of being married outside with a backdrop of the glorious English countryside. Whatever your vision for your perfect day, we’re confident Shottle Hall can make your dream come true.
