We love a good old country house party! Our manor houses are perfect for birthday parties, family holidays, wedding anniversaries, Christmas & New Year, corporate events and just for fun. Most estates offer in-house catering or self-catering and guests can usually mix and match. All of our manor houses are designed to accommodate their guests as well as provide space for entertaining and eating. They are frequently used for large birthday parties and family reunions, and we often hear of people coming from abroad to stay in style with relatives in the UK. They are wonderful venues for holidays and offer a base from which see the surrounding area. Do ask our properties about holiday activities, ranging from clay shooting to laser quest to murder mysteries and countryside walks.

You just can't beat the luxury, convenience and atmosphere you get from having a party or celebration in a grand old manor house, country estate or even a private castle. Whatever the occasion, whether it's a wedding, anniversary, birthday, family reunion, Christmas or New Year, having the run of your own country pile for a weekend or longer makes so much difference. It definitely beats being squished into a B&B or hotel!

With a stately manor house or country estate at your disposal you and your guests can enjoy luxurious accommodation, with plenty of space and complete privacy, as well as having stunning rooms for dining, relaxing and entertaining. Whether you choose to hire the services of an in-house catering team or opt for self catering you can enjoy the freedom to eat what you want, when you want, and even where you want. Lunch on the terraces? Dinner in the dining hall? Breakfast at ten? It's entirely your choice.

For corporate events a country estate really says it all, and for large groups is often entirely comparable in price to hotel accommodation. Yet you also get the image, the comfort, the privacy and the convenience of being able to celebrate your own way. Remember, the bar never has to shut, the dancing never has to stop, and your guests don't have to ever worry about disturbing other guests or neighbours!

As a holiday house a large private manor house or country estate is perfect, whether you're wanting a quiet rural retreat or somewhere to get all of the family together and have a blast. If you have family and friends are coming from across the country, or even from abroad, a country estate provides an ideal setting to be able to catch up on gossip and news, capture the occasion on camera and video, and enjoy a whole range of fantastic activities right on your doorstep.

Many of our country estates and private castles are nestled in the most idyllic countryside, surrounded by stunning scenery which offers endless opportunities for walking and hiking. But if you and your family are looking for a holiday with a little more excitement then just ask about nearby opportunities for activities such as clay pigeon shooting, laser quest, hunting or even pony trekking. From fishing to golf, hiking to biking, there are so many country activities on offer to make your stay one which suits you and your guests perfectly.
