Full Description
Located in the lovely village of White Roding on the Hertfordshire / West Essex border, Chelmsford is 11 miles away to the East and Harlow is 9 miles to the West. Bishop Stortford is located 7 miles north. Colville Hall is a working organic farm which produces organic wheat for the family’s mill in Chelmsford (Marriages). The arboretum which stretches across the whole farm underlines how well the gardens and farm link to not only the beautiful old buildings but the surrounding farm. The ambiance and tranquillity of Colville Hall will take your breath away. The beauty of our formal gardens which extend to 10 acres include ponds, gazebos, ancient monuments, and a listed Grade 1 arch way, for the most romantic picture opportunities that you will treasure for the rest of your life. Colville Hall is fully licenced to hold civil weddings in our Orchard Barn and our two gazebos making an ideal outside wedding setting. While our Mill Pond Barn with its 30 foot glass doors overlooking our duck pond make for a surreal and never to be forgotten backdrop to your wedding breakfast. Our 14 acre ancient wood known locally as the ‘blue bell wood’ is stunning in May and June and is located through a gorgeous avenue of lime trees. Colville Hall has many specimen trees that are hundreds of years old, some of which can be seen to their best effect near the two fish ponds that were originally used to feed the house. Bask in the great English summer with a fantastic opportunity to have your wedding ceremony held outside in the stunning grounds Colville Hall has to offer. The thatched duck pond gazebo offers stunning photo opportunities and is ideal for a balmy summer’s day enjoying the quintessential English countryside. With rolling countryside, tranquil formal gardens, elegant duck pond with water lilies and beautiful flowers - you and your guests will be stunned by the beautiful surroundings.

Best Customer Service!
We had our wedding booked for July this year and have had to postpone due to COVID. Philippa has been sympathetic and supportive throughout the whole process of not knowing what was going to happen. When the decision was made to postpone our date, Philippa and her team did everything possible to make the transfer as smooth as possible with all of our other suppliers and with no extra cost. I highly recommend this beautiful venue and the exemplary customer service. We cannot wait to celebrate our big day at Colville Hall next year. Thank you so much to Philippa and her team you have been magnificent!
