Hiring the Garden

The Garden and Main Lawn

Most events which utilise the entire Garden are centred around the Main Lawn which measures around 90’ x 77′ and is set in front of the main Garden house. Guests are allowed to wander freely throughout the Garden and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. A marquee or awning is optional but as an open air venue, this is usually advisable and can easily be organised with Claremont Marquees, our exclusive marquee partner. Exclusive private hire of the Garden includes use of the Gallery and Reception Foyer.
Children are welcome of course, though, for their own safety, do need to be closely supervised.
