About Prested Hall

Located in a stunning rural setting, Prested Hall is the perfect setting for your wedding and event celebrations. The Colchester-based venue, hidden down a long leafy drive, is nestled within 75 acres of charming parkland. Prested Hall has been awarded a number of accolades, including the “Boutique Wedding Venue of the Year” in the 2013 Essex Wedding Awards.

The part-moated 15th-century manor house is a truly romantic setting for your wedding. The beautiful and tranquil surroundings of mature trees and a bridge, which leads over the moat to the fields beyond, create a delightful backdrop for a very special wedding day. You can make the most of the stunning setting by taking memorable pictures in the little gazebo at the end of the bridge.

When you choose Prested Hall for your wedding, corporate event or party, you will enjoy exclusive use of the Hall and its 14 charming bedrooms, allowing you and up to 33 guests to stay overnight. The Dingle, a former chapel nestled near the orchard, provides an alternative tranquil bridal suite for newlyweds. You and your guests can also enjoy breakfast the following morning.

There are three handsome and elegant reception areas for your event: The Oak Room, The Garden Room and the large Orangery. The 18th-century Oak Room features a magnificent fireplace and exquisite stained-glass windows, while the Garden Room was formerly a 1930’s ballroom. The elegant Orangery overlooks the moat and is perfect in the summer. All three spaces, as well as the outdoor gazebo, are licensed to hold civil ceremonies. In addition we also have our stunning new moat-side marquee which is fantastic for summer celebrations.

Prested Hall has a great reputation for its caring, considerate staff, excellent food and relaxed atmosphere. It is the perfect place to begin your married life together.

A very friendly old style hotel. Set in it’s own grounds, this is a really nice hotel for a short stay. The staff are very friendly and accommodating, the atmosphere is very relaxed and the hotel, which is an old style ex Manor House was spotlessly clean. We only spent a couple of days there with friends, was a perfect hotel to relax and catch up. Also surprised at the price, in this present climate it was very reasonable. Would recommend
