Chillington Hall is first and foremost a family home, but it has an indefinable charm that despite its formal facade will stay with you forever. The Hall offers unique charm and beauty and was designed for entertaining. We are able to offer exclusive use as well as more flexibility than other venues and we are committed to making your day a joy for all present.
Within the Hall we have some fantastic locations for those all important photographs. The staircase is a masterpiece of Italian plasterwork, there are open fires in the grand fireplaces all year round, and the beautifully light and airy Drawing Room is all available for you to utilise. If you head outside then we have hundreds of acres of gardens, parklands and woods for you use as well as a stunning Lake with ornate bridge and follies which will just add to the options for photos.
Chillington Hall can hold non legal ceremonies or blessings followed by a drinks reception, Wedding Breakfast or an Afternoon Tea for up to 80 in our Saloon. If you prefer to keep things on a more intimate level then we could do a romantic candlelit dinner for up to 24 in our Dining Room.
Chillington Hall is able to offer the Bride and her party a changing room so it gives the chance to arrive in the morning and get ready at the venue before a ceremony or to use as a space to change after the reception/before departing. We have a stunning bedroom with a painted 4 poster bed which was designed for the family for one of their own Weddings. A lovely location for some pre wedding photos and from this room you are able to watch your guests arriving as they come up the driveway.
