The unique interior structure of joinary and woodwork encompassed by its majestic exterior design, surrounded by a lush landscape will leave you in awe. We can cater up to 250 guests for weddings, receptions and parties.

Situated in the city of Leicester, you can host your wedding any time of the year without worrying about the weather. With the flexibility of a venue hire only option or an all inclusive package, you are in charge of your big day.

We cater for all sizes of weddings, from intimate gatherings for say 50 guests to larger gatherings for up to 500 guests. The room will be lit up with ambience coloured lighting to complement your colour theme and your guests will be entertained in the most stunning, elegant and refined surroundings. ​We can offer you venue hire only or a full service including catering.

We can comfortably accommodate between 50 - 500 delegates. Exhibition space, OHP, flipcharts and any other technical equipment required can be arranged on request.

For these kinds of events we are happy to arrange catering be it coffee and biscuits, finger food buffet or a full three-course lunch or dinner. We are happy to arrange accommodation for delegates at nearby hotels if necessary. Our aim is to work with you to ensure all your requests are attended to and your event runs as smoothly as planned.
