With an extensive history and dimensions to match, this family-run Essex hotel is to be found just outside Great Warley, south of Brentwood. The venue has 81 individually-styled bedrooms and five licensed function rooms in which you can recite your vows and exchange rings. Once you've finished, you can relax in the Italian-style garden before heading indoors to celebrate.

Fully-equipped and featuring all mod-cons, with the capacity to cater for up to 250 wedding guests and establishing excellent links to other external services through their dedicated wedding coordinator, brides and grooms will experience a day to cherish in this bespoke 19th-century country venue, enjoying a range of delicious cuisine whipped up by the talented in-house chefs.


Beginning life in 1875 as a traditional country cottage known then as 'Goldings', the original structure was enlarged to twenty times its original size in 1881 by owner Evelyn Heseltine. Upon his retirement from the army, the Heseltine residence became the centre of village life as a gathering for all types of social or community groups, in a room now known as the Golding Suite.

After passing to the Heseltines' son-in-law, Brigadier General De Rougemont, and subsequently to the Hilton family (who still own the property today) in 1968, the house was converted into the luxury hotel we see today. Despite a devastating fire back in 2001 that destroyed 90% of the building, the historic parts of the hotel have been restored and stand as fitting testament to the long and well-established history of De Rougemont Manor.


The manor itself has a variety of versatile lounges and suites that present a generous space for any wedding celebration, banquet, buffet or barbecue. Each room contains a little piece of individual history and in certain cases (Golding, Champers Suites) benefit from their own private bars and dancefloors.

Dry Hire

The Golding Suite is available for dry hire. This means that you can just hire the venue without any additional features. Therefore, you can make the venue your very own and add your unique special touches.

More extensive details regarding various reception rooms and capacities can readily be seen on the De Rougemont website.


Besides an indulgent wedding breakfast menu from a fine team of chefs, the hotel presents both afternoon and evening buffets that come either completely customised or as pre-set menus at fixed prices. Along with an extensive wine list, other elements of wedding catering can be discussed and selected in good time.


There are 81 bedrooms available at De Rougemont, including 6 executive suites, each individual in character and designed to match the historic aesthetic of the manor itself. Some executive suites come with four-poster beds and fabulous spa bathrooms (with a jacuzzi), alongside antique furnishings and atmospheric paintings to complete the stylish charm of your overnight stay.

One of these rooms serves as The Bridal Suite, with a regional character in keeping with the surrounding building and all the luxury a newlywed couple could need on their wedding night.
