Nestled in the weaving pathways and slumbering hills of the Peak District, you’ll find beautiful manors and mansions once frequented by the lords and ladies in England’s history. Now they hold grand balls where only one lady wears a beautiful white ball gown but the events are still as grand and the venues still as incredible as they were hundreds of years before. Here are eight of our favourites…
1. Capesthorne Hall, Macclesfield
This grand family-owned estate speaks for itself. It is set in 100 acres of scenic countryside featuring three lakes and a formal garden. The whole thing can be exclusively yours for the day and there are so many different options for your ceremony – outside by the gazebo, in the woodland, in the grand hall or perhaps the Lakeside wing.
There are rooms here too; it sleeps 20 people. For more information on this gorgeous property, click here.
2. Shrigley Hall Hotel and Spa, Macclesfield
A classic country house set within 262 acres, Shrigley Hall Hotel was built in Victorian times, boasting a golf course, spa and wonderful wedding facilities. It’s certainly a spot for a winter wedding, decorated beautifully at this time of year. Their team is committed to making every wedding unique and there are many rooms to choose from for your wedding day.

3. Hargate Hall, Buxton
This lovely place includes 12 self-catering apartments for guests who are staying over in addition to 22 bedrooms in total sleeping 77 people. They also operate on a DIY basis so you can select every element of the wedding yourself from catering to confetti. They don’t charge corkage for your alcohol and there is an on-site permanent marquee.

4. Tapton Hall, Sheffield
We know that stately home weddings aren’t exactly cheap. That’s what makes Tapton Hall such a brilliant option if you’re on a tighter budget. They have a huge selection of different packages to suit every budget allowing you to still get married in the grandeur of this beautiful location in the Peak District for a lot less money.

5. Chatsworth House, Bakewell
This venue is modestly named a house but in reality, it’s far from it. Chatsworth House is an enormous stately home that resembles a palace more than a house. The beautiful property sits in 1,500 acres of parkland and can cater for parties of 10 to 200.

6. Durker Roods Hotel, Huddersfield
A Victorian manor house is the perfect setting for a dream wedding, but one in such a prime location in addition to being set in the Peak District is ideal. Durker Roods has 31 en suite bedrooms, a very professional wedding team and of course, a beautiful look inside and out.

7. The Old Hall Hotel, Buxton
A venue that’s a little less rural is the Old Hall Hotel in the centre of Buxton. If you want to get married in the Peak District but wish for the convenience of a more central location, this venue is perfect. There is a wedding events team on hand, the place has rich history, it’s licensed for civil ceremonies and sleeps 75 people.

8. Wood Lane Countryside Centre, Stannington
Ok, so this isn’t exactly a stately home but we felt this Grade II listed former farm deserves a mention on our list. It’s part of the community, used regularly and is a great facility for weddings. It’s also a DIY wedding meaning you can choose all elements of the wedding yourself. The hire of the venue is exclusively yours and you can prepare the venue the day before.
Not only that but the hire price includes two barns, courtyards and grounds to create the space you dreamt of. For more information, click here!
