Dating back to the 1320s, the centuries-old Moat House is a timber-framed manor and grade II listed house built on an historic Norman mound that is recognised by Historic England for its national significance. For the past 25 years The Moat House has been run as a family-owned hotel and country house wedding venue in Staffordshire that has beautiful grounds, serves award-winning food and has a four AA star rating.

Fairy Tale Wedding

Peaceful gardens and tranquil landscapes provide picture-perfect backdrops at The Moat House Hotel. Sitting in the pretty village of Acton Trussel, you can enjoy drinks outside in the flower-filled gardens, pose for formal photos against the quintessentially English countryside background, and soak up the ambience as the sun sets over a glorious rural skyline.

Inside, you’ll discover that this 600+yr old building has undergone a loving restoration which has conserved its historic charm and enriched its allure with careful modern touches.

Exemplary Service

Owners, the Lewis family, have been hosting weddings for more than 25 years, and promise a service that is second to none. And, because they hold just one wedding per day, you can enjoy exclusive use of the venue as well as the undivided attention of the Moat House’s wedding team.

“We believe no two couples are the same and we take this approach when working closely with our couples. We want their day to be perfect and we always take the couple’s personal preferences into account when arranging their big day.

“We also offer a selection of superb packages to ease the pressures of the whole planning process. Packages include a personal wedding co-ordinator, venue hire, accommodation for the couple and their guests, red carpet arrival, and much more!”Nikki - The Moat House Hotel


You and your guests can enjoy a night in one of the hotel’s 41 four-star standard bedrooms. To extend your celebrations, you can also enjoy a delicious breakfast with your nearest and dearest the following morning.
