With a variety of different sized halls and rooms, it is perfect for anything from a small meeting to the largest of receptions. It is used for conferences, weddings and wedding receptions, fairs, recitals, meetings and parties.
The landscaped gardens, lawns and lake, with a fountain, provide a wonderful backdrop for your events and are particularly impressive for photographs.
