Seamlessly and sympathetically blended with the Georgian architecture of the main house, it is a gorgeous, light-flooded space beset with dramatic garden views and full air-conditioning.

Our Orangery opens out on to the expansive covered terrace, where you will find our Summer Terrace Bar.

Overlooking our beautiful gardens and floodlit fountain, the terrace makes the perfect backdrop for your reception and evening drinks!

Party the night away on the dance floor, in the main bar and the Grand Hall - or if it all gets a bit too much, rest your weary feet in a comfy armchair in the Blue Drawing Room.

All these areas connect and are centred on the Grand Hall so your party flows beautifully with everything working together seamlessly through to your big send off at midnight.
