Copdock Hall
Copdock Hall
As soon as you walk through the oak doors, you can’t help but be wowed by the stunning interior of this red-brick barn. Sensitively renovated, the Grade II listed venue marries old with the new boasting an oak-timbered roof and eyelet windows with a modern sound system, underfloor heating, bar and wooden dancefloor.

Perched on Copdock’s highest point, the stunning gabled Tudor barn is a local landmark, surrounded by lush green fields next to the parish church and the venue’s own vineyard. Lit up at night, it provides a stunning illuminated backdrop.

Licensed for ceremonies, you can host your whole day here, joined by 300 or more of your family and friends. Guests can spill out on to the courtyard, gravel paths and lawns, to make the most of the fabulous setting when the weather’s fine. Brides also have their own bridal suite for the day where they can get ready or relax post-vows.
