Your wedding at Blencowe Hall
You wedding guests will be awestruck. You will be too. Your first glimpse of Blencowe, along the winding lane that leads from Greystoke village, is its two fortified towers of rosy sandstone rising over the hedgerows. As you sweep up the drive the view expands to buttressed walls and the arched entrance to an inner cobbled courtyard.
Inside you’ll find flagstone and oak floors, vast hearths of blazing log fires, high ceilings hung with chandeliers and a lavish claret dining hall, lit by candle sconces, leading onto a generous terrace ideal for hosting pre-dinner drinks. An antique dinner gong calls attention to speeches. The first floor Solar Room, reached by a stone spiral staircase, spans an entire wing of the castle and is licensed for the ceremony itself. The handsome billiards room is a perfect spot for catching up over a frame or two by Tiffany lamplight. Guests who need sit-out time have a choice of firelit and panelled snugs.
