Rather than disappoint you later, we will always tell you honestly from the outset if we feel the chateau is not best suited to your proposed celebration, your preferences or requirements. We always suggest you arrange a visit prior to any decision. You should be aware of both the possibilities and the limitations (such as no disabled access) , and whether the venue suits you, your event, and the needs and preferences of you and your guests.
We allow access to/ use of all parts of the Chateau (except the basement), the foyer sound system & grand piano (for pianists use only please), and the grounds to use as you see fit to make your celebration special.
