Walcot Hall is considered as one of the top wedding venues in Shropshire. With its turquoise freestanding ballroom, characterful accommodation and eclectic furnishings, it really is a feast for the eyes and perfect for unique wedding ideas. The 30 acres of grounds, including one of the finest arboretums in Britain, offer a wide variety of panoramas, floral displays and garden features including the extensive lake, walled courtyard, unusual statues and a fountain. Whether you are interested in hosting a wedding or hiring one of our holiday cottages for a weekend away, this vast estate makes for one of the most impressive wedding venues and memorable holiday destinations within the Shropshire Hills.
Set in splendour, this grand country estate was formerly residence to Lord Clive of India and overlooks parkland, an extensive lake and the rolling Shropshire countryside with beautiful private landscaped gardens to the rear. The Parish family have been at Walcot since 1957 and they have always shared their family home with the outside world – it would be a shame not to with all it has to offer…

Self Catering Holiday Cottages in Shropshire
With no less than 14 self-catering holiday cottages and 10 glamping ‘hidden treasures’ dotted around the estate, Walcot certainly has a lot to offer. The holiday cottages are located in a variety of buildings, from the traditional Main Hall, to the refurbished stable block, to an old reconstructed Chapel tucked away in the arboretum…there really is something for everyone. Ranging from 1 to 5 bedrooms, all of the holiday cottages are as cosy as you could wish for, thoughtfully furnished and with a classically comfortable feel. We are able to accommodate a variety of sized groups from large family gatherings or walking parties to romantic getaways for two. All of the holiday cottages and glamping accommodation at Walcot Hall have been kitted out for a comfortable self catering break and the majority have wood-burning stoves and/or Agas. Most also have their own private patios or garden spaces.
You’re invited to treat the grounds as your own – take leisurely strolls through the arboretum, indulge in a spot of seasonal foraging, and try fishing, horse riding and rowing on the lake. The Shropshire Hills are close by and yours to discover. Return to Walcot after a day out for a slow-cooked meal from the Aga, or treat yourself to a very good dinner out – there are plenty to choose from in the local area!
