Guests arrive through the house and enjoy the main reception rooms before moving onto the south facing terraces and lawn for drinks. The main reception rooms of the house are suitable for a small wedding reception, up to 30 formally seated in the Dining Room, or up to 80 for a champagne and canapes/buffet wedding reception.
Most weddings at Hollybank use the outside space and the main lawn for a marquee (or other shelters). Often guests are observed playing croquet whist sipping champagne or strolling round the grounds. There is plenty of space for other entertainment as well.
Food and drink for any tastes can be catered for, whether it be an informal hog roast or a sit down candle lit banquet. We work with some excellent local suppliers but are always happy if you have someone specific in mind for your day.
The house is floodlit and has ample parking, cars may be left overnight. Our Bed and Breakfast facilities are also available for you or your guests.
