Amazing venue in a wonderful setting… So much character without being overly imposing. We found it perfect in every aspect. The wedding team were faultless in their planning with a warmth and professionalism rarely encountered. We couldn’t find a better venue for our civil wedding ceremony anywhere else in the West Midlands.

Make our history, your history.

For an indoor ceremony, we have two wonderful and totally different options for you. There’s the Great Hall which is located within the main moated manor. This historic room dates back to the 13th century and can accommodate up to 80 guests. There’s wood panelled walls, decorative tapestries and a crackling log fire adding to the romantic atmosphere.

There’s also the Garden Room, located in a converted Elizabethan bowling alley, with a 60ft aisle, ambient lighting and contemporary décor. This barn can accommodate up to 200 guests for a civil ceremony.

Wow, what an incredible weekend! Thank you so much for everything in the run up to the day and on the day itself. It seemed to run so smoothly but we know this is down to the Birtsmorton team in the background. It really was an amazing day and we couldn’t have asked for more! We have had so many comments from our guests about the venue, it really was amazing.” Heather & Chris, June 2017
