From the moment you drive up the tree-lined drive at Tan House Newland, you know you’re in for a special private dinner. This incredible 17th century Mediterranean-style villa in the Forest of Dean was built in 1670, and these days it hosts all sorts of chic getaways from Christmas parties to corporate away days, big birthday celebrations and magical private dinners.
Tan House Newland’s owners Francois and Tanya have over 30 years of experience organising events and dinners for private and corporate clients, and they’re on hand to make sure that your private dinner plans become reality. That includes everything from decoration and entertainment, to organising catering to look after you and your guests for the evening - their black book of caterers can handle anything from canapes and buffets to elaborate sit down feasts.
Meanwhile, the property itself boasts a number of separate locations for private dinners, as well as 20 acres of beautiful private grounds for al fresco occasions. Private dinners often head to the Garden Wing of the house, which boasts a gorgeous, spacious kitchen, complete with breakfast bar and a long pine dining table that seats ten. There’s even a cosy sitting room to lounge in before and after dinner, and five bedrooms to retire to afterwards so you can enjoy dinner without worrying about a designated driver.
There’s also the boho-chic Hillside Retreat and Station Wagon, which also sleeps ten and boasts a pizza oven, fire pit and Kamado Joe barbecues. Best of all, Tan House Newland is thoroughly accessible, either by road or by train, with nearby Lydney station just a quarter of an hour away.
