Hazlewood Castle has been in the family estate of Vavasours since Norman times and was first mentioned in 1086 in the Domesday Book.
It remained in the family for nine hundred years. We have many rooms we can use to accommodate your wedding party whether for reception drinks in the Flemish Hall to your wedding breakfast in the Great Hall.
Hazlewood Castle is licensed for civil ceremonies in four private rooms available for private hire; The Victoria Room, The State Drawing Room, The Old Dining Room and the Great Hall. Each have a different ambience and vary in size to suit your individual needs.
During the summer months civil ceremonies can be held in our beautiful pagoda with guest seating under the cherry trees.

Built in 1286, St Leonard's Chapel is situated to the East of the Castle, complete with a Palladian altarpiece, fine fretwork and glass decorated with symbols of the passion of Christ.
