The Main House retains many of its original features and offers a selection of smaller reception rooms for drinks parties, intimate lunches and dinners, or business meetings and conferences. All the rooms offer high ceilinged splendour with working fire places as a focal point.
With its imposing high ceilings and Portland stone flooring, the Hall makes a perfect location for receptions and pre-dinner drinks. It can accommodate up to 150 people for receptions.
The Library has always been a library and retains its original shelving. There is a wide range of books, from children’s books to books on art, antiques and music. This room is perfect for small meetings or conferences or as a quiet room for larger functions. It can accommodate up to 30 people seated or 50 for receptions. The Library is located off the Hall and can be used in conjunction with the Hall or other rooms in the Main House.
The Drawing Room
The Drawing Room has stunning, original bow windows facing onto the South Lawn and the fields beyond. It can accommodate 80 people seated or up to 150 for receptions and lends itself to meetings, lunches and dinners, exhibitions and has even hosted yoga classes in the past.
The Dining Room
The Dining Room faces South and East overlooking lawns on both sides. It has full length windows and a working fireplace, making it cool and airy in summer yet warm in winter. A pair of imposing scagliola columns add dramatic effect to the room.
The Dining Room can seat up to 70 guests, or accommodate around 120 for receptions. To reach it guests come through the front door under the Portico and through the Hall.
The Morning Room
The Morning Room is next to the Dining Room, facing east and looking out onto the East Lawn. The French doors in the Morning Room open onto a small terrace and the lawn where drinks receptions and wedding breakfasts can be held. Like many of the rooms in the main house, the Morning Room has a working fireplace. The Morning Room is used for a variety of events from business meetings, drinks receptions, pre-dinner drinks and sitting-out area for dances and can accommodate up to 100 people for receptions.
We have a number of bedrooms available for wedding guests on a bed & breakfast basis, some en suite and some with shared bathrooms.
