Private hire

From a relaxed family luncheon or anniversary celebration to a business meeting or workshop class, Friars Court is an ideal location. Aside from the tranquillity the grounds of this historic house can offer we ensure that each booking has complete, private and exclusive, access to the facilities and grounds for the duration of their stay. The light and spacious 40 ft semi-glazed Garden Room overlooks the herbaceous borders of the back lawn while the adjacent Old Laundry has comfortable armchairs and sofas and a large woodburner.

The Garden Room can seat:

  • up to 24 guests around a single large, banquet-style, table
  • up to 40 guests around five 5' round tables (which seat 8 per table)
  • the rooms can also accommodate up to 80 guests for a drinks reception


The Garden Room may be hired for small workshop classes such as yoga or flower arranging.

The Garden Room is available for hire from April to October.

For information and rates about hiring the Garden Room for a civil ceremoney or small wedding reception please visit Silver Pear Weddings or call 01367 810206.

Whilst we welcome previews as Friars Court is a privately-owned home we ask that all visits are made by appointment only.
