This is a rare opportunity when it comes to historic properties and one which allows ultimate flexibility. At Crow’s Hall, unlike so many other places offering their site as a garden party, celebration and glamping venue, you can truly make the beautiful Crow’s Hall site your very own.

Marquees may be erected in the paddocks area adjacent to the farm barns, and /or within the glamping paddocks as appropriate .

Gazebos may be located within the island gardens.

We are delighted to discuss the possibilities based on your requirements.

Do we have exclusive use?

Absolutely. Our ‘garden party & glamping getaway packages’ include exclusive use of the venue with plenty of time to set scene to suit your gathering (including putting up marquees etc.).

We only ever host a small number of garden party gatherings or weddings over the summer each year and rarely more than two in each month. Any hire of the venue dovetails in such a way that there is never any overlap. The only other people on site will be those of us who live here and our small team (for the venue, our horses and the farm).

How long do we have the venue for?

Our venue hire period for garden party getaways is:
Typically hire periods run from a Tuesday to the following Monday to allow for set up / take down of all glamping / marquee facilities – to allow for guests overnighting (Thursday) / Friday / Saturday / (Sunday).

The hire fee is a one-off fee – there will be no additional commissions or corkage charges levied by Crow’s Hall. The hire period allows you to set-up, take-down and really personalize things without feeling rushed, experiencing a truly personal and unique service.

Staying on site also gives you the possibility of enjoying smaller-scale gatherings and celebrations around your main event (eg. a drinks party, family dinner, BBQ), perhaps with guest accommodation through our additional glamping packages.

Do you have a Wedding Co-ordinator or an Event Manager for the day?

We highly recommend the services of our in-house event manager. We offer a personalized service for your special occasion without you incurring any commission charges.

Caroline Spurrier is a highly experienced events coordinator as well as the owner of Crow’s Hall. She loves sharing her country home for happy occasions and is discretely on hand just as much as required to ensure that everything goes smoothly in your preparations, on the day and when everything is eventually being cleared away.

From suppliers and caterers to how your horse or hound can be appropriately accommodated to join you at the festivities, Caroline is not just a fantastic fount of knowledge, but a hugely helpful and much appreciated pair of hands.

We only ever share the venue over the summer each year from April to September inclusive. Crow’s Hall is a working farm and we have significant commitments on the estate all year round.
