Nicolavthomp's review of Kelham Hall, Newark, Nottinghamshire

“Simply Wow! ”


written by Nicolavthomp on 10/02/2023

My friend and I had a FABULOUS visit to The Renaissance at Kelham Hall. Agents were exceptionally generous with their time and gave us a truly enjoyable tour of this exquisite and grand venue as well as a stylish buggy ride around the extensive gardens. The sweeping carpets of snowdrops in the gardens were spectacular and particularly memorable as we have never seen snowdrops on that scale before.

This unique Victorian Stately Home designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott is an impressive example of his architecture which is similar to and predates his famous St Pancras hotel and Station in London.

It is no wonder that Kelham Hall is one of the leading Stately Homes in Nottingham and is a coveted destination for Luxury Weddings and Events. We were amazed by the wide range of stunning rooms available for hire catering for small gatherings, business meetings and private dining all the way up to huge rooms like the Great Hall which can cater for weddings and events for over 500 people.

We had a totally delicious tea prepared by the chef  while we were there which comprised of sandwiches, scones, miniature apple crumbles, tarte tatins, lemon possets and chocolate brownies prepared by him the exceptionally talented Executive Chef. My friend who is a scone connoisseur said the scones were the best she had ever eaten anywhere in the world and she has had a lot of cream teas!

The huge vaulted ceilings and enormous windows in the Music room where we had tea were both breathtaking. Yet despite the fact that this magnificent room was spacious and grand, it also had a warm and cosy feel to it. A particularly memorable moment was standing in the fireplace in the Music Room and looking up to see ancient graffiti in Latin dating from when the Hall was occupied by monks for 70 years.

We were so impressed by this unique and very special venue that my friend booked it for her wedding on the spot without even checking with her husband to be first!

We cannot thank all the warm, helpful and friendly staff at Kelham Hall for making our visit so welcoming and memorable. You exceeded our expectations and we are two very fussy opinionated customers so that was no easy feat!

We could really feel that the staff at The Renaissance at Kelham Hall are passionate about this venue and genuinely want to exceed your expectations and make your event as stress free, memorable and special as possible. In particularly we would like to thank the chef and staff for an unforgettable experience.

We now cannot wait for the Wedding!
