Prested Hall

The Hall

Prested Hall is a beautiful, privately owned, 15th-century country manor house, positioned at the end of a tree-lined drive in 75 acres of gorgeous Essex parkland.

We have fabulous reception rooms available for exclusive hire and our delightful waterside Pavilion & Bridge are all licensed for civil ceremonies. So, whether you are looking for an alfresco summer ceremony on the lawn or an intimate winter ceremony in our warming oak-paneled room, Prested has something for all. During the summer months, couples also have the option to dine in our traditional marquee with picture-perfect views out across the manicured lawns, moat, and the stunning parkland beyond, creating the perfect backdrop to any wedding breakfast.

The Hall offers 13 individually styled boutique bedrooms, providing a fantastic night’s sleep for you and up to 32 guests. The accommodation is split over three floors and our rooms are a mixture of double, twin and family rooms all with private facilities.

It was a beautiful wedding

We got married here in July 2022 and cannot fault the venue and their staff, from the initial enquiry, right through to the end. The contact has always been excellent and nothing was ever too much trouble. Considering the amount of planning that goes on for the day, the team made the day go perfectly, everything we wanted and more. The food was exceptional quality and quantity. The staff work so hard moving and setting up each area to plan and truly did an amazing job. The staff in the leisure facilities were so kind and thoughtful when we stayed in the apartments the night before and also the day after the wedding where we were able to have a private swim with the guests who stayed the wedding night, which was a lovely addition to the day. We would highly recommend the venue for anyone's wedding.

Wedding Reception

We attended the evening reception of a work colleague and stayed the night. We arrived in the afternoon to have a look around and we received a very warm welcome. Our room (number 18) was beautiful - could have stayed all week! We were also greeted by the geese when we were walking around the grounds and ended up playing Scrabble (found in the library room, which I fell in love with) in the sunshine. The reception went extremely well and the breakfast in the morning was outstanding. The couple married here and as soon as we arrived to check in, you could tell instantly that the staff had made it all about the happy couple.
