This medieval building is buried in Rochford's rich history. The Old House's name stems from its reputation as one of England's oldest buildings. The venue dates all the way back to 1270 and its main hall was built more than 700 years ago.

The Old House is perfect for brides and grooms who want something historic but don't want the pomp and circumstance of a grand and lavish venue. Ideal for couples eloping, it allows you to have a wedding surrounded only by those you are closest to.

In fact, this building's humble nature only emphasises its character and rare charm. This venue is certainly a hidden gem within the wedding venue industry.

The building's timber frame and daub panels really highlight the most luxurious living spaces of medieval England. Its rustic brickwork and peaceful garden will make you feel like you've been transported back in time!


The Old Hall

The Old House's main hall was the first part of the house to be built and is more than 700 years old. Refurbished in 1984, its rustic style has continued to live on with the beautiful fireplace and timber beams. You can subtly decorate this venue with wildflowers and fairy lights.
