Private dining and celebrations

Plan a superb celebration in a grand country mansion

With a private dining event or celebration in mind, our events team will help you get it just right.

Everyone has a special occassion to honour at some time - a birthday or anniversary, a hen-do or a stag-do, a baby shower, a christening or a retirement do. Choose how you would like to mark the special event- a lunch, afternoon tea, dinner or party! From a cosy dinner with friends, or fabulously themed parties...From a private dining room, lounge with open fires or the Gallery for larger events. There are so many reasons to gather friends and family, rejoice, have fun and perhaps even have a real knee-up! 

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.
