“A breath of fresh air. Relaxed down-to-earth attitude.”


You can have the furniture removed from any of our 5 reception rooms and set up with square, oval, round or trestle tables for meetings for up to 50 delegates around one table.


Out team can set any room up with theatre style seating (with or without tables) for presentations for up to 100 guests.


All of our 5 large reception rooms and multiple other smaller rooms can be emptied or adapted for workshopping or break out spaces.


All our main reception rooms flow off the Great Hall, so if you are wanting a showcase or expo space the rooms can be emptied for displays and booths.


We can set up break-out spaces throughout the house and grounds if you want, often clients like to have rooms set up with formal and informal areas for workshops – that’s no problem!


Rooms can be completely cleared for a standing reception for up to 120 guests inside or on the terraces surrounding the house.


Please email our team for our seating ideas and room specification PDF, which details the size of each main reception room as well as their capacities. It lists different set ups from theatre style seating to meeting room and banqueting options.


The house is furnished so that almost all the furniture can be moved around by our furniture porters, so the house is laid out and set up as you need it, when you need it. This includes mid stay moves if you need them.


The main receptions are furnished traditionally with modern comfort to create a feeling of homely relaxed grandeur –  posh but playful.


We have a late alcohol licence if you are selling alcohol on site and also an entertainment licence so you are able to bring bands, DJs and performers to site.


We provide AV and meeting equipment within the hire price, including: video projection and screens; large monitors; microphones; amplifiers; speakers; flip charts; markers. Contact the events manager for a specific list. We can also arrange extra equipment on site on request.


Your dedicated corporate event manager does the hard work – they put together a running order specifically for your event. This ensures we deliver the event exactly how you need it, with staffing as required by you.


We have both round & trestle tables so can make a variety of shaped tables for meetings. We also have a choice of two styles of chairs.


We include all table linens, cutlery, crockery and glasswear so even if you rent dry hire you do not need to hire anything in unless you want something different.


If you decide to bring your own drinks or use one of our suppliers, we never charge corkage or handling fees.
