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)
