First built in 1727 as a royal hunting lodge, this elegant four-star hotel is now a luxurious destination, set in 10 acres of well-tended gardens and lawns. There are several events spaces available, the largest being the Windsor Suite – which features a private bar and lounge area, a private garden and a grand crystal chandelier. There are several festive packages to choose from for parties, dinners or lunches. Each includes a three-course Christmas meal with tea, coffee and mince pies, table centrepieces, crackers and party poppers, plus chair covers and sashes. Additional extras include champagne receptions, canapés, overnight accommodation, a DJ set, late license and casino tables.
