With an impressive moat and acres of open fields that surround the 17th century Hall, complete with a fine avenue of oak trees. Athelington Hall offers exceptional surroundings, perfect for capturing those special wedding day moments.
The original Hall was built in 1620 with stud and plaster on an oak frame with a moat surrounding. Part of the moat still remains today and is well stocked for fishing. One of the original outside oak beams has a Tudor Rose, the Shamrock of Ireland and the Thistle of Scotland carved into it and the wall beam of an outer building contains 17th Century carvings of buildings.
