Hoscote Estate, the 5* exclusive use venue is the perfect setting for your Wedding Day celebrations.
Hoscote nestles in 450 acres in the beautiful Borders/Northumberland
countryside. Its equidistant from Newcastle and Edinburgh airports and
an hour from Berwick to the east and Junction 44 of the M6 to the west.
The main house sleeps 18-20 guests in 9 stunning bedrooms and a further 4 pretty cottages mean that the whole estate can accommodate a maximum of 40 guests.
Hoscote hosts all sorts of happy celebrations from weddings to anniversaries and special birthday parties. The intimate house-party
weddings for up to 40 guests within the house are a wonderful opportunity for couples to escape with close friends and family for an elegant but informal wedding weekend in luxury surroundings.
Larger weddings can also take place in marquees on the south lawns. Hoscote was delighted to welcome Ben and Tonia from Newcastle who got married this summer and had a tipi wedding. Wed been looking for beautiful wild scenery, a long way from anywhere, says Ben, who is a craftsman and cabinetmaker based in Newcastle.
Enough modern comforts for older guests, but relaxed enough to throw a
great big party for all our friends, where they could all feel at home.
Solicitor Tonia, came across Hoscote after looking for a special wedding venue in the Scottish Borders. The whole day was incredibly laid back and relaxed and the tipis were magical. Inside was friendly and welcoming, with soaring tipi poles, wooden tables and natural flowers carrying through the rustic theme, and a fantastic fire pit which was lit after dinner.
Guests enjoyed a succulent hog roast from a quirky rotisserie trailer,
barbecue, salads and strawberries and cream. An excellent ceilidh band
provided the entertainment and everyone danced the night away.
Hoscote weddings are all about flexibility. Its possible to self-cater either
side of the wedding day itself or opt for more catering if required. You can also bring in your own drink or order from Hoscotes own wine list. There is a very low one-off corkage charge of 5 per person.
Couples can marry in the south facing drawing room, secret walled garden or under a beautiful tree in the grounds and, as youll see, we often welcome our feathered friends who swoop in with rings during the ceremony.
With the current challenges in the economy, Hoscote offers excellent value for money. Exclusive Use for a two night stay for 40 guests is 6,200 (including VAT). This works out an 77.50 per person, per night.
Theres also a brilliant Winter Wedding Package available too for winter months.
