Bishton hall is a small hideaway in the heart of Staffordshire and is absolutely beautiful. It is not a public house so you cannot just turn up and go take a look but it is used for functions including the one I am going to review which is for weddings. The hall address is as follows;
Now the location is superb as it is just off a main road so is quite easily located once you know it is there. Myself I have passed it hundreds of times without even realising so it is nice that it is hid away and is not overlooked by anybody. Stafford centre is within easy reach which is nice and motorway networks are close.
The actual hall is an extremely impressive building with huge wooden doors which open up onto a huge hallway with several rooms appearing at all sides. It is easy to get lost in the hall so for weddings they keep the rooms used to a minimum and several places are obviously off limits as the hall is used as a school and also as a family home.
Each room for a wedding is very unique and has different décor and furniture. As the hall is very old you will find that most of the furniture has a very antique look which I just find amazing. However although these rooms were available for use during the wedding you can have a marquee at the back.
Now the gardens of this place are huge and absolutely amazing. I spent quite a long time admiring the very impressive looking flowers that were dotted around as they truly were beautiful. They are all very green (obviously) and right at the back which is actually hidden from the rest of the hall is a massive temple decoration. It is very beautiful and looks like massive stone pillars and makes for some very pretty photos.
On a nice day everything looks so gorgeous and if you have a marquee then that is amazing. I believe there was another room that could be hired which was heated if it was raining but I did not see this one.
The hall has good contacts with catering and the food was cooked brilliantly and was yummy!!! The actual hall is designed so that caters have their own way of getting to the grounds so most of the time you do not even see them which is great.
As a wedding venue I think Bishton hall is amazing. The second you travel onto their gravel drive and look up at the entrance to the hall which is decorated in ivy and other plant life you feel like you have been transported into a Disney film. Photo opportunities are a plenty and it seemed like everyone has such a good time as there is so much to do and see there which is great. I heard that once they had a bouncy castle in the grounds at a wedding which I can imagine is quite fun.
All in all I think Bishton Hall is truly stunning and just amazing to be in. I cant say much more about it really but for wedding is can say it was a truly amazing venue and I think that the people who come to school here are very lucky.
Oh and my favourite part of the whole hall is that the windows open in 3 parts which I think is ace. The hall is not open to the public but you can have functions there I believe so you would have to contact them to find out.
They are huge grounds and due to them owning a field there is no problem with parking at all which is something you dont have to worry about which is great. A beautiful place which is nicely nestled away so it cant be found unless you know its there. Truly amazing!
