In a quiet corner of N.E. Derbyshire close to both Sheffield and Chesterfield at junction 30 of the M1 motorway, Renishaw Hall is reached by a long drive through breathtaking parkland and has ample parking.
Renishaw Hall has been the residence of the Sitwell family since the early part of the 17th century and was home to the three famous writers, Dame Edith, Sir Osbert and Sir Sacheverell Sitwell. The current owners Sir Reresby and Lady Sitwell have restored the Hall to an exquisite family home without losing any of its natural charm and historical atmosphere. The lake in the grounds and the renowned Italianate gardens with it’s ‘rooms’ of yew hedges and hidden statues laid out by Sir George Sitwell in 1886 offers the perfect backdrop for those all important wedding photographs.
The Red Dining Room designed by architect Joseph Badger, in 1769 is licensed for civil ceremonies, the apse at one end forming a natural ‘altar’ making this indeed the perfect place to hold your special day.
An intimate reception for up to 60 guests can be accommodated in the Red Dining Room, whilst larger affairs and evening celebrations will take place in a marquee situated in our wedding garden, with views over open fields to the lakes in the distance.
All styles of receptions are catered for, be it a formal meal, a light finger buffet, or canapés on the patio, our catering company, Chapman-Holmes are happy to work with you to prepare any specific dishes you may wish to choose.
Although not a hotel, Renishaw Hall boasts several reputable hotels a short drive away.
