Newland Hall

Roxwell, Chelmsford, Essex, CM1 4LH, Chelmsford, Essex
£2000
Up to 200 guests
The Manor of ‘Newlanda’ belonged to King Harold before the Norman conquest, and was the only land-holding in Roxwell specifically listed in the Domesday Book of 1086. It was so named because it was created out of untamed forest on ‘newly won land’. The land was held by Eustace, Earl of Boulogne. At the beginning of the 13th century Newland was held by Ralph de la Neweland, and for the next two centuries it remained in the hands of his descendants.The first reference to Newland Hall (rather than just Newland) was made in 1447. Original records exist for Manor Courts held at Newland Hall from 1448 onwards. There is strong evidence that Newland Hall was one of the places of retirement for the lascivious King Henry VIII.

After the ceremony you may wish to enjoy reception drinks and canapés on the lawn whilst listening to a string quartet before receiving your guests for the Wedding Breakfast.


Due to exclusive use, all of the above options will be available to you. There is no requirement for you to commit to any particular location for the ceremony when you book your wedding with us. You can alter your ceremony plans any time – right up to the last minute!

The Hoop Free House

The Hoop, High Street, Stock, Essex, CM4 9BD, Stock, Essex
Starting life as three weavers' cottages built circa 1460 The Hoop was converted to an Ale House approximately 450 years ago. There are several possible explanations why the ale house was named "The Hoop", the most common being the hoops used by a cooper in the manufacture of barrels.

Another being the raised hoops that would encircle a quart pot. In bygone times an overflowing tankard was said to be "cock-a-hoop" and the expression has since come to denote merry-making and drinking without stint. A tradition the locals still boast!


The present-day Hoop is notable for its handsome brick fireplaces. The bar is ornamented throughout by the building’s original timber framework, most of which formed part of warships lying in dock at Tilbury.


It was the practice in those days for the beams to be transported from the coast on wagons, after which the drivers would load their vehicles with newly-cut forest timber and take it back to Tilbury.


The Oakroom is available for private hire for all occasions such as weddings, parties, corporate events & funerals.


With seating for up to 40 covers or 50 for buffets, we are sure that the Oakroom will be the perfect venue for you.


We can offer a range of packages to suit all budgets
