“Charlton Hall doesn’t follow anybody else’s path. We don’t depend on what is accepted as the norm. We make our own rules, curate our own story and create our own myth.
Our vision is to give guests who stay here a fun, luxurious and home-from-home experience that will serve you with lasting memories.
In acquiring Charlton Hall, my vision was to bring the hall back to life. As a wonderland of glamour adorned with bold colours, hand painted interiors and restored antiques to create an enchanted place to create memories and entertain.
I believe what we have achieved with Charlton Hall is to create one of the most luxurious venues in the North.
Charlton Hall looks out towards Beadnell Bay and enjoys uninterrupted views of the coast across its private estate. Accessed via a private, tree-lined driveway directly off the A1, Charlton Hall offers complete exclusivity to guests and is strictly by appointment only.
Charlton Hall is the second wedding and events venue owned by Richard Shell of the Doxford Group, who also owns the award-winning barn wedding venue – Doxford Barns.
For your overnight stay, there are six distinctive bedroom suites within the hall, as well as the detached stable cottage within the grounds to accommodate up to 16 overnight guests. Each bedroom has been designed to reflect the personality of its namesake. These guest rooms feature elegant roll-top baths, vast chandeliers and vibrant décor by leading names in interior design including Mulberry, Pierre Frey, House of Hackney, Manuel Canovas, Emma J Shipley and Diane von Furstenburg to name but a few.
Our distinctive interior design was led by Jo Aynsley of award-winning Jeffrey’s Interiors of Edinburgh, who has expertly introduced bold colour schemes with statement antiques to juxtapose tradition with modernity. Throughout the hall, you will find historic pieces emphasised by opulent lighting, bold materials that offset traditional wooded flooring and juxtapose old with new and audacious wallpaper to clash with mismatching fabrics.
Bespoke, rustic and full of charming romantic character, Doxford Barns is a beautiful barn wedding venue where rural charm effortlessly meets modern elegant style.
