Wedding Celebrations


If you are looking for a special location for your celebration , the chateau offers an intimate and private  exclusive use venue for  your event.  We would  be delighted to discuss your requirements,and how we might assist. 

We are very flexible and are happy to work with you to ensure you have a really great celebration.

Rather than disappoint you  later, we will always tell you honestly from the outset if we feel the chateau is not suited to your proposed celebration  or requirements.  We always suggest you arrange a visit  prior to any decision so you are fully aware of  the various possibilities , whether the venue suits your event, and whether  it meets the needs and preferences of you and your guests (eg no disabled access) 

Exclusive use hire allows use of all parts of the Chateau (except the basement), including the foyer sound system,  pianist use of the grand piano,  and the grounds.

 (Fair, reasonable and safe use conditions apply)

To help you assess what is  or isn't feasible or possible we give Maximum Limits inside the chateau as follows:

Maximum chateau overnight occupancy: 

  • Up to 22 people in 11 ensuite  bedrooms*

  • We have 1 baby cot & 1 folding child bed which we can add into a  room if necessary

  • Parents' own travel cot can normally be accommodated in the parents' room. 

* additional  accommodation is available locally.

Formal dining inside the Chateau:

Up to 24 can be seated around a single huge table in the half panelled dining room for a formal meal. 

A larger formal seated meal (up to 40 comfortably , 50 more tightly) could be accommodated in the Foyer, or on the Terrace in good weather.

Buffet / Drinks Reception:

A standing drinks reception or buffet for up to 100 could be hosted using the entire ground floor entertaining area . 

Maximum Number  of guests :

 If you wish to host a seated meal for in excess of  40 guests you need to factor in additional costs to hire a Marquee and accompanying equipment for the meal service, any dance floor required, and  additional  sanitation facilities .
