If you’re looking to host a Christmas party it doesn’t get much more impressive than hosting your festive soiree in an elegant Surrey country house. Botleys Mansion is one of five exclusive use venues owned by the Bijou group, and although it is primarily used as a wedding venue, the space is also a great place to host your Christmas party.
Botleys Mansion is set amid 56 acres of lush Surrey parkland, providing an escape from the hustle and bustle of the rat race which is in fact just 30 minutes outside of London. We all know that first impressions count, so Botleys makes sure to welcome any visitors with style and grace – guests make their way up the winding driveway, before being greeted at the stunning stone staircase with a glass of fizz and entering the luxurious Entrance Hall, where they can enjoy a selection of tempting canapés. They’ll also be able to take in the surrounds, including glittering chandeliers which hang from the ceiling and the sounds of a grand piano in the background.
The Entrance Hall is well suited to large functions, able to accommodate up to 250 guests for a standing reception. If you’re hosting something a little smaller, the Green Room can welcome 80 guests for a seated dinner and up to 131 standing. It’s a charming space, complete with high ceilings and vintage gold chandeliers.
Botleys third and final event space is its Atrium – a majestic room which can host 250 seated guests and up to 500 standing. Guests enter the Atrium via a grand staircase which sets the tone for its unrivalled glamour, while the glass-panelled roof is perfect for a spot of stargazing on a winter evening.
When it comes to providing food at your Christmas party, Botleys boasts an in-house team of chefs who can prepare a festive banquet complete with all of the trimmings. The team are also happy to accommodate special dietary requirements, as well as being able to create a food menu that’s entirely bespoke.
The best part? The wings of the Atrium can be opened up as an extra special surprise for guests, revealing a dancefloor and your choice of live band or Bijou resident DJ, so that you can dance the night away.
