Private dining and celebrations

Plan a superb celebration in a grand country mansion

With a private dining event or celebration in mind, whether you’re planning to toast your grandfather on his 90th birthday or want to create a birthday party to top all parties, our events team will help you get it just right.

Available for private dining and exclusive use, The Elms is a great venue for weddings, christening receptions, anniversary parties, birthday parties and intimate dinner parties. The elegance of the architecture and décor combined with award-winning fine dining, a relaxed atmosphere and a highly efficient team of friendly staff means that your event will be memorable in all the right ways.

The advantage of organising a party at a hotel is that your guests don’t need to worry about taxis and getting back home at the stroke of midnight. The Elms is a beautiful country mansion with 23 comfortably appointed rooms – you and your guests can make a proper weekend of it if you so wish.
