Crondon Park

Stock Road, Stock Essex, CM4 9DP, Stock, Essex
£4985
Up to 200 guests
Crondon Park has established a reputation as the premier wedding venue in Essex. Set in the beautiful valley of Crondon, with stunning views across the Essex countryside and our championship golf course, it’s no wonder that we are considered in Essex as ‘The Venue for All Occasions’. We have been staging weddings at Crondon Park since our opening in 1994, so we bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to ensure that your day runs smoothly. As Essex’s best wedding venue, we have a responsibility to strive for improved standards. Our family owned business is constantly looking for ways to cater for our valued guest, and we’re keen to make your experience an unforgettable one.

Our main function room is The Baronial Hall. Built circa 1600 out of light oak, it is considered to be one of the finest examples of a Tudor/Jacobean Barn. It has a charm of its own, a very special atmosphere and that wow factor when you first see it. We have enhanced its medieval feel by adding atmosphere lighting; this charming Essex wedding venue can then be colour matched to the theme chosen for your wedding. The solid rosewood floor was acquired from County Hall London twenty years ago, and a hundred years after it was laid there. The Baronial Suite includes The Ryder Room, which is licensed to perform Civil & Partnership Ceremonies. It also has a Bridal Suite, allowing the bride to prepare herself prior to the ceremony and a private room to escape to. The private gardens are totally enclosed. It has a very private feel and cannot be overlooked by anyone. The trees are theme-lit to match the lighting in the Baronial Hall. The whole wedding venue suite is exclusive and self-contained.


The best wedding venues in Essex, and specifically Chelmsford, are extremely well represented, so we have to be vigilant and professional to stay ahead of our competitors. Crondon Park has recently been nominated and shortlisted for ‘The Best Wedding & Barn Venue in the United Kingdom’, which is a true honour. Whether you’re looking for a large wedding venue or a small wedding venue in Essex, we can accommodate for weddings of all sizes. All our catering is in house, we only use fresh produce, and we pride ourselves on presenting tasty foods for all of our wedding guests. There is a wide choice of menus to satisfy all tastes and special dietary requirements.


We welcome the opportunity to meet you, so that we may show you around our wedding venue and its incredible facilities. Contact us today to discuss your special day and your requirements.

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


Seating up to 40 people
