Blakedown Hall is a beautiful stately country house set in an estate of around 132 acres in picturesque north Worcestershire countryside. The Hall itself, built in 1710 is a Grade II listed Queen Anne residence of great character and charm, with later additions in keeping with the style of that period. It is yours to enjoy if you are planning a party or luxury short break for a large group. Whether you have in mind a family gathering or reunion, a murder mystery setting of character or perhaps a special wedding venue, this is the perfect party venue. We are also hosts to corporate meetings, conferences and presentations.
The luxuriously appointed Hall, complete with indoor swimming pool is a fabulous residential venue providing exclusive use in the main house for up to 43 guests. For larger groups we are able to accommodate more people by using cottages on the estate and other accommodation near by.
Excellent road links to both the M5 and M42 and the close proximity of Birmingham International Airport make it a convenient location to reach wherever you are travelling from.
