Eastnor is a dramatic, fairytale castle situated in a 5,000-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.
Just 15 minutes from the M50 and 10 minutes from Ledbury Train Station.
At Eastnor Castle, you’ll find tranquillity, splendour and complete exclusivity, and whatever you are planning, the team will enjoy the challenge of exceeding your expectations. Their flexible and friendly staff will ensure that everything runs smoothly. They will help coordinate your plans, recommend excellent suppliers and suggest innovative touches to enhance your day.
Eastnor Castle has been hosting weddings for 25 years, drawing on many years of experience. The castle is only ever hired out exclusively, so you and your family and friends are there to enjoy the occasion.
There are several ceremony options; the Gothic Drawing Room is for 90 guests, and the Great Hall is for 150 guests. There are also several outdoor spaces, the most popular being the Lower Terrace, with stunning views across the lake and the Malvern Hills beyond. A charming village church also sits at the end of the drive, just a short walk away.
Drinks and canapés can be enjoyed on the Terraces or in one of the breathtaking reception rooms; guests can listen to soft music and admire the views across Herefordshire whilst the happy couple sneak off for some romantic photos.
The all-important Wedding Breakfast can take place either in the Dining Room or the Great Hall, each room full of character, charm and warmth. Their award-winning caterers will enjoy cooking up a feast for you and will ensure your guests are amazed at their offerings.
As the evening approaches, dancing can take place in the Octagon Room, and fireworks are often launched from the far side of the lake, making them illuminate the water – a truly spectacular sight.
There are 12 guest bedrooms at the castle, all individually designed with style and comfort in mind. Elsewhere on the Estate, four holiday properties offer a further 17 bedrooms for overnight guests.
