Meet Prestwold Hall

Under the name of the Packe family for over 350 years, Prestwold Hall is a magnificent Grace I listed stately home in the heart of Leicestershire. Although it is a private residence, it has also become one of the most sought-after venues in the area and can be yours to enjoy for however long you wish. Historic and romantic, it really is the perfect place to say, ‘I Do’, boasting character, service and style.

It’s rich with history, having been remodelled in neoclassical style in the 1840s by William Burns. If you love the thought of hosting your celebration at a venue that boasts story after story, you can read more about the history of Prestwold Hall here.

Each and every detail at Prestwold Hall has been carefully considered, with the gardens reflecting the classical symmetry of the house, and unrivalled views across the parkland. The house is renowned for its exquisite interiors, including its marbled plasterwork in the Italian style and the extensive collection of twentieth century portraiture, not to mention the eighteenth-century English and European furniture.

Prestwold Hall offers you complete and utter exclusivity of the venue, promising you privacy and seclusion to celebrate your love story. The team want it to feel like a ‘home from home’, encouraging you and your guests to relax and unwind from the moment you arrive. If you want to extend your nuptials, opt for the ‘Deluxe Weekend Celebration’ package and make the most of your time together. Flexibility is key at Prestwold Hall and you can have the day you have always dreamt of – from the flowers to the décor, menus to the music.

You will be spoilt with three locations to choose from for your ceremony. The light-filled library in the House offers an elegant space for you to exchange your vows, while the rose garden and the outdoor Georgian Gazebo promise the prettiest of backdrops. For couples who are seeking a religious ceremony, our 13th century Church of St Andrew is also available. It boasts a picturesque walk through the gardens, with space for up to 160 guests.
