A stately home on the edge of its own lake, Stubton Hall has all the grandeur of a 19th-century country house without the stuffiness.

Everything has been designed with the modern bride in mind, from the free wi-fi throughout to the cosy and inviting Chocolate Bar, which stays open late to cater for guests who don't want to say goodnight.

The gorgeous Orangery is just the place for a party, while the water feature on the front lawn is the ideal spot for a romantic moonlit stroll.

You might recognise this country house from Channel 4's Hotel Rescue in 2009.

Its former grandeur has been restored and it has a fantastic setting in parkland with a 300ft water feature and a lake. Book your wedding here and the venue is yours exclusively with a chic Orangery, elegant Music Room and 15 luxury bedrooms.
