You can have up to one hundred guests seated in the secret walled garden dining room for your wedding breakfast.

Is there accommodation on-site?

You will have seven luxurious bedrooms within the house, which are available for you and your guests to use. Nearby we have the beautiful historic towns of Ironbridge, Shifnal and Bridgnorth all within three miles. Each have a great selection of guest houses and hotels. The town of Telford is just five miles away with large hotels just a short taxi ride away.

When can we arrive and when do we leave?

You can stay at Stockton for as long as you like. Whether you decide to celebrate for a weekend or a week (longer if you wish!) it's completely your choice. At a minimum you can arrive the day before your wedding day to set everything up, stay the night of your wedding day and enjoy breakfast or brunch with us the next day. One things for sure, however long you stay you won't want to leave.

Where can I hold my wedding ceremony?

There’s so much choice when you book your wedding at Stockton House. You can get married at St Chad’s church down the lane. If you’d like a civil ceremony you could get married in our unique secret walled garden dining room, or if you would like an outdoor ceremony you could get married in our beautiful gardens next to the Victorian turning house. If you would like a more intimate ceremony for up to 30 guests then you could host your ceremony in our private dining room in the north wing.


Stockton House is the perfect Wedding Venue. Its proximity to St Chad's Church was ideal as it made our whole day run smooth and easy. We loved the beautifully decorated rooms, the food was excellent and the service out of this world. Couldn't recommend it more!

We truly can’t thank Marc, Jonathan, Amy, Rosita, Tom, Pixie and the rest of the Stockton house team for helping us create the most incredible wedding weekend. We first looked around Stockton pre refurb when it was a house full of mood boards and fell in love with the vision that Marc and Jonathan had for the house. It’s been incredible watching them bring that to life in the house over the last year or so (although at times we had to trust the process!) and what an incredible result. The venue is even more special than we imagined, made more special by the care and attention of the team whilst you are there. The relationship we felt we developed with the team was a friendship which made it such a lovely experience to work with them leading up to and on the wedding weekend. Being huge foodies, a big appeal of having our wedding at Stockton was that the weekend centred around the food we love and enjoy. We wanted a noisy, happy weekend with everyone tucking in to pizzas on Friday night, a loud Italian sharing breakfast on our wedding day followed by dirty burgers and chips in the evening, and a chilled breakfast the next morning on the terrace. Everything Tom and his team produced was absolutely spot on, all our guests said how different the food was for a wedding and how much they all really enjoyed it - a testament to this was how many steaming bowls of pasta came out of the kitchen and replaced empty ones on the tables! A huge bonus for us for booking with Stockton, was that the venue was ours for the weekend, the food we had was curated by Tom and us and we could tweak it however we wanted to suit us, and that the team were incredibly flexible with making whatever we wanted work. The attention to detail was impeccable, the above and beyonds too many to mention. The feedback from our guests has been more than we could have ever hoped for, we all loved it so much it was hard to say goodbye on the Sunday and not do it all over again immediately!

My wife and I got married at Stockton this year and would definitely recommend it! The setting is stunning with great photo opportunities and the house and garden room are fab choices to celebrate a wedding. The fact that we had access to the house the day before, the whole day of and at our leisure the day after our wedding was amazing and made the whole experience so much more relaxing! The food was also terrific and served brilliantly by the attentive and polite staff. Marc, Jonathan and Amy were incredibly helpful in planning the day and helping us create the experience we wanted, with Amy and Pixie ensuring everything ran like clockwork on the day itself. We can't thank them enough!
