Down Hall Hotel Spa Estate

Matching road, Hatfield Heath, Essex CM22 7AS

The award-winning Down Hall estate offers the perfect setting, to realise the wedding of your dreams. The earliest records show that Down Hall was already a thriving estate during the reign of Edward the confessor (1042-1066), changing hands numerous times over the centuries. The hall was lovingly restored at the turn of the millennium, establishing itself as one of the most renowned wedding venues in the South of England. The 110-acre estate of picturesque woodland, and landscaped gardens is anchored by the Italianate architectural splendour of the Hall at its heart. When walking amid the elegant and peaceful grounds of Down Hall, it’s all too easy to forget that you’re only 45 minutes from the hustle and bustle of central London. As such Down Hall has established itself as one of the few venues that can offer a serene country escape, with such easy transport links in and out of the capital. But for all of the natural beauty of its surroundings, the hall itself is the jewel of the estate.

Down Hall boasts over 98 separate rooms, all beautifully decorated with modern contemporary twists on classic country style, and complete with all the modern amenities your heart could desire. Flooded with natural light and boasting tranquil views across the expansive estate and gardens the hall is able to cater to and accommodate your guest list, regardless of the size of your wedding. Down Hall’s greatest offering is its adaptability. There are a number of ceremony and reception spaces for you to choose from throughout the main building and grounds. Our rooms and suites are individually designed with subtle and soothing colour pallets to match the character and elegance of the hall, which houses 3 bars and a variety of breathtaking outdoor ceremony spaces to choose from. We‘re able to accommodate and elevate every wedding, from smaller more intimate ceremonies to the grandest and most extravagant of weddings with our license allowing us to accommodate as many as 180 overnight guests. The largest of our suites, The Bridgeman suite, is able to host as many as 250 guests for an evening reception, and everything is tailored to your specifications, from the entertainment to the lighting, even stretching to offer you a variety of dancefloors.
