Being from the area we knew of The Hurt Arms long before we took it over. We knew there was massive potential for a contemporary restaurant and hotel in the historical building if given the time and attention that it deserves. And of course the biggest dream for us was to host wedding days.
The Hurt Arms is located in the Ambergate valley, in a magnificent 19th century inn. Our venue is the perfect combination of rustic and contemporary, with a beautiful stylish function suite named the Tollgate Suite. The spacious room is named after the toll house and gate that was adjoined to The Hurt Arms in the 1870’s, when the building was first built by Francis Hurt. We wanted the suite to retain the fascinating heritage whilst creating a stunning and unique wedding venue.
The Tollgate suite is also licensed for civil ceremonies which allows our couples to get married here at The Hurt Arms. This alternative option given to our couples to step away from the common church wedding and say ‘I do’ in the contemporary Tollgate suite. Moreover, this option allows them to decorate the room and walk down the aisle the way they have always dreamed of.
The Hurt Arms is perfectly situated in the heart of Derbyshire and is surrounded by sensational countryside scenery. Our grounds give our couples the opportunity to capture the most perfect photos with our breath-taking countryside backdrop which they will be able to look back on in fondness for years to come.
Since re-opening after our refurbishment in 2018 we have been able to host over 100 weddings for our couple’s special day and it is amazing to be able to be a part of their wedding experience and host their day at our venue. We can’t wait to welcome many more couples to The Hurt Arms for many years to come.
We also have some amazing wedding offers running through 2020 that can be found on our website.
