Upper House Hayfield is an ancient farmstead dating back as far as the 14th century. The building was acquired by Mayor of Manchester, Sir James Watts, who retained Upper House as his shooting lodge.

Watts set about improving the house, taking on many highly skilled architects, masons and craftsmen. The estate was later used solely for recreation and many societal figures were entertained here.

The house now belongs to the Hudson family who have spent 12 years lovingly restoring every aspect of this remarkable venue.

    We had the most amazing wedding at Upper House, from the first days of planning there is nothing I would change. The house is perfect. As soon as you walk in you feel relaxed and completely at ease. The views are breath taking! There are so many incredible backdrops for photos if you don't want to venture too far.

    The rooms at the hunting lodge are warm and comfortable. From our children to older guest everyone was more than happy in the rooms. The kitchens are great for entertaining your resident guests before and after the wedding. The living rooms are great if you need to escape for a few minutes. I am completely in love with this place and it is a weekend that I will treasure forever. Thank you for making our wedding better than we could've ever imagined!

    We had the most amazing wedding day at Upper House Hayfield. When we first visited Upper House we were blown away by how beautiful the venue is and also by the amazing views. The venue is immaculate and there are so many stunning details which you notice each time you visit. Our guests had an amazing time here and we have had so many lovely comments about our day.

    It was very refreshing to meet owners of a venue that genuinely want you to have the best day and make you feel so welcome. This venue is not your typical 'wedding factory' which is extremely rare and a unique find. If you are thinking of visiting Upper House we are sure you will absolutely love it. Thanks again.

    We had the most amazing Wedding at Upper House and have talked about it every day since. Every guest said it was an amazing venue and it really is! All the suppliers that were recommended to us pulled out all the stops to make it a perfect weekend and we really didn't want to leave. We loved the fact that the wedding didn't have to be over after one day and it gave our families the opportunity to really bond and get to know each other which was amazing. Thank you with all our hearts for the most amazing weekend if ours and our families lives.

    We got married at Upper House and it was the most amazing wedding weekend. The house is absolutely stunning and unique. It was so interesting finding out all the history and exploring around the house, definitely one not to miss. The views are breathtaking, we were so lucky to have the weather on our side, then again it would still be as beautiful if it was pouring with rain.
    Being there for the whole weekend with some of our guests made it extra special, we were able to spend some quality time with our closest friends in a little bit of Derbyshire luxury. The whole Hudson family are wonderful, nothing was too much trouble. I'm so sad that We have no immediate plans to venture back up to the house, we loved every minute of the weekend - it was the wedding of our dreams.
