Hawkstone Hall and Gardens is one of England’s most beautiful estates, a vision of Georgian elegance dating back to the early 18th Century. Hawkstone Hall and Gardens has just been completed renovated with no expense spared, creating a truly luxurious country retreat for celebrations, corporate events, weddings and wellness retreats in an idyllic setting.
The sweeping mile-long driveway winds its way through verdant parkland, transporting guests to a haven of tranquillity with the gentle sound of birdsong floating on the breeze. The pretty manor stands sentinel in its 88 acre estate, with manicured lawns, fountains, waterfalls and secret gardens creating an enchanting setting with excellent levels of privacy.
Yet the interiors are just as breath-taking, from the magnificent Saloon with its frescoed ceiling to the gold-gilt splendour of the Ballroom. The elegant Tapestry Room is flooded with natural light, as is the Winter Garden with its sweeping double staircase and beautiful views. There is an abundance of light throughout thanks to the vast sash windows, and the elegant antique furnishings, rich fabrics and amazing artwork create a magical setting for special occasions.
There is also a Chapel and Refectory offering the perfect space for larger events, each able to seat 200 people for a banquet or up to 250 for an evening reception in the Refectory. The Chapel is a perfect setting for wedding ceremonies complete with working bells and a grand organ, or choose to get married in the beautiful grounds. For even bigger events, a marquee for up to 700 guests can be accommodated.
There are several cosy lounges, offering more intimate spaces to relax by the fire and chat long into the night over a nightcap from the bar, or as breakout space for meetings and corporate events with fibre optic broadband throughout the Hall.
Guests benefit from personal 24-hour butler service throughout their stay, with professional, friendly and discrete service to ensure your every need is met. Catering can be provided by the superb in-house chef and his team, with a highly personalised, bespoke approach to each and every event. Alternatively Hawkstone Hall and Gardens can be rented on a dry hire basis with catering provided by one of the venue’s preferred suppliers, with a corkage option also available.
The 37 bedrooms are all beautifully furnished and feature en-suite bathrooms throughout. The main house offers 12 luxurious Suites, all very spacious, but none more so than the incredible Bronte Suite, with no less than 15 sash windows, a vast bathroom suite, dressing room, seating area and emperor size bed. All suites demonstrate wonderful attention to detail, with luxurious en-suite bathrooms, in-room vintage cocktail trays, Nespresso coffee machines and Burleigh tea trays. Several suites offer four poster beds and freestanding bath tubs in the room.
There are a further 25 Classic bedrooms in the Orangery Wing, a little cosier in size they offer sumptuous king size beds. There is one Family Suite bedroom with a double bedroom and adjoining twin, along with two accessible bedrooms for guests with limited mobility. All bedrooms include premium bed linen, luxury Elemis toilerites, fluffy bathrobes and slippers, and vintage style radios, and all are named after writers and poets associated with the Hall’s history.
The 88 acres of landscaped gardens offer an idyllic setting for summer soirees, with manicured lawns, a rose garden, croquet lawn, orchard, an original 18th century lily pond, waterfall, walled garden, river with a stone bridge, forested areas, over half a mile of footpaths and a romantic ‘secret garden’.
The grounds offer ample space for a variety of activities, from traditional country pursuits such as laser clay shooting and archery, to duck herding and bush craft survival. There is also a yoga studio within the estate, and horse riding, golf and fishing are available nearby. We can also assist with arranging any entertainment or other services that may be required.
