Events and Parties

We understand that there is nothing better than getting away with a group of family and friends to enjoy the countryside and, we often host large groups of people for birthday parties, hen and stag dos, and university reunions.  

As our primary aim is to make sure that everyone staying enjoys their time with us - so we've created a few guidelines to ensure that groups are free to enjoy their break, but individual families staying with us are not overwhelmed or disturbed.  

Please note - this is not a venue for boisterous parties and quiet time is from 11 pm each evening (when all activities have to move inside where the thick walls will prevent noise from carrying). 

We are not able to accommodate wedding receptions or parties where guests not staying at the property are in attendance. 

Hen and Stag Parties

Hen and Stag parties are welcome:

  • Between 1 October and 31 March each year (sorry, not during the summer months April to September)

  • Either in the main house or the cottages (but only if all cottages are booked, for the duration of the party) 

Small group get-togethers

  • We accept groups of up to 12 people - that don't require more than two cottages - all year round. 

  • It is not possible, however, to commandeer one of the communal spaces for your sole use in these circumstances. 

Large group get-togethers

  • Groups of 13 people and above - need to stay either in the main house or need to book all of the cottages. i.e it's not possible to book three cottages together.  

  • Where all of the cottages are booked together you do have exclusive use of the cottage games room and additional tables can be placed in Summer cottage so that you can dine together.
