We do not normally take large parties because they have a different dynamic from ‘normal’ guests. However, over the years we have hosted some fabulous weddings* and anniversary parties, where guests have taken over the entire hotel.
Our 2-night House Party package is available either on Friday and Saturday, or on Sunday and Monday, or on Wednesday and Thursday – excluding all Bank Holidays, Christmas, New Year and Easter festive periods. It offers exclusive use of the Crown and Castle, complete with 21 bedrooms, restaurant, bar and terrace, from 3pm check-in to 11.30am check out (44.5 hours total).
The package includes two generous 3-course dinners (bespoke menus by prior arrangement) with coffee and chocolates, two full English breakfasts and one English afternoon tea, the latter normally on arrival day. It excludes all bar drinks, wines and spirits, which are charged at our normal cost.
The cost of the 2-night House Party package is £15,000 for midweek bookings from November to March inclusive. For weekends throughout the year, and for midweek bookings from April to October inclusive, the rate is £18,000. Please note a flat £500 service charge will be applied, the whole of which goes to our staff.
If you would like to discuss this further, please telephone Tim Sunderland, General Manager.
* very important: we are not licensed for the wedding ceremony itself, which will have to take place elsewhere
