Cowdray House, a magnificent country residence located at the heart of a 16,500-acre Estate, is available for exclusive-use hire for events including house parties, weddings, corporate retreats and other private celebrations.
Cowdray House, formerly the home of Lord and Lady Cowdray, is an outstanding events venue which lends itself perfectly to large parties as well as more intimate gatherings, while still retaining the warmth of a family home. From the sweeping driveway, manicured grounds to the beautiful reception rooms, this stunning home offers elegant interiors and refined country living with fabulous space to dine, entertain or simply escape.
Set in 110 acres of beautiful landscaped gardens and parkland, guests can enjoy complete privacy, yet it is easily accessible from London and its’ airports. The House also offers superb flexibility with a choice of recommended and trusted caterers and suppliers. Almost all tastes and requirements can be accommodated.
Drinks receptions can be held on the manicured croquet lawn or in two reception rooms – the Library and Drawing Room – which open onto the front terrace. Buck Hall with its vaulted ceiling, stain-glassed windows and minstrels gallery is at the heart of the House, and is the ideal location to hold a reception. The wood-panelled Dining Room, with its stunning views, can be used for a more intimate dining experience. Buck Hall can seat up to 150 guests, and hold up to 300 for cocktail receptions; there is marquee space for around 600 guests.
Cowdray House has 15 beautiful bedrooms with luxurious ensuite bathrooms, sleeping over 30 guests. Each room has been individually designed and beautifully furnished throughout. Most have stunning views over the South Downs.
On the Estate, there is also additional accommodation available in the North Wing, attached to the House, which sleeps 12, the Golf Lodge, which sleeps 16, and four pretty estate cottages, that sleep 13. Across the Estate, over 70 people can be accommodated overnight.
By staying at Cowdray House, guests have access to all the facilities that the house has to offer including an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, private bowling alley and tennis court. There is also the opportunity to make use of all the activities on the Cowdray Estate from golf at Cowdray Park to clay pigeon shooting. There is also an award winning Farm Shop and Café.
Cowdray is the home of British polo and is played throughout the summer months. Polo lessons can be offered on the Estate throughout the year, and free entrance to polo matches as and when they are scheduled could also be arranged.
We would love to welcome you to Cowdray.
