Evening Receptions

As a result of current pandemic restrictions, Receptions are limited to 25 guests.  For more details see

We have a small kitchen area, so your caterer will need to be able to bring all they need themselves. Buffet style works well, with the food selection laid out in the No. 1 Court, and taken through to the Great Hall to eat. Informal options also work well, such as a hog roast or ice cream van in the courtyard. Please pop in to chat to us about your ideas.


Marquees in the grounds are possible. They need to be weighted with water ballast, rather than staked, as the site is designated a Scheduled Ancient Monument. This may add extra costs to your marquee hire - please discuss with your marquee company for details.  Local providers including Funky Tents and the Rutland Marquee Company have experience of the site, so know the situation and can advise, and other companies will also be able to help once they have viewed the site.
