Weddings and Civil Partnerships

Enjoy the reception at your Party House; or have had the whole celebration at a specialist wedding venue and then used their Party House for your guests to stay in. Either way, you can really stretch the celebration and spend time with those close to you. Please note we do not have wedding licences for the Party Houses as there are fabulous local venues nearby, which many of our guests have taken advantage of.

So many of our brides have said what a fantastic decision it was, as they were able to a lovely dinner on the night before the wedding, the excitement shared of getting ready, as well as a proper catch up the day after the wedding to re-live the best moments! Enjoying your wedding reception here can be fantastic value. Invite in a Chef to cater (or even a hog roast or self cater), buy your own drinks (saving on expensive bar bills), and you don’t even have to switch the lights off and all leave at midnight.

Check out our Activities and Ideas section for information on CateringPhotographyFlowers, etc or call us on 01273 271332 and we will do our very best to help with ideas and contacts. Don’t forget… Party Houses make lovely venues for your hen or stag party too!

A great family 70th birthday celebration

A family party of 16 ranging in age from 4 to 77 assembled for the week to celebrate a 70th birthday. We loved the cosiness yet with plenty of space, the walled garden where the younger children could play safely, the splendid views and the well appointed kitchen and utility areas where we prepared our evening meals and did our clothes washing. It was also very well situated to explore the Staffordshire Moorlands.

80th Birthday party

We hired Hamps Hall and Barn for a week, for four generations of a family. It suited us perfectly, including one member of our party in a wheelchair. Staff were great to deal with and really wanted to make sure we were happy with all aspects of our stay. Communal areas fantastic, well equipped kitchens and all bedrooms very nice. (Some quieter than others, so bear this in mind when deciding on rooms). Beautiful location and lovely outdoor space. Lots to do in the area. We are already planning another Party House stay.

Fabulous stay. Good facilities.

A friend hired this for her 50th birthday celebrations. What a super place. Spacious, very well equipped kitchen, quiet location. There is a pub within walking distance or a short drive (The Ship Inn) which is very good. There are a number of great walks nearby too.

Amazing weekend in the fantastic Party Houses Merrymeet cottage!

Just returned from a brilliant weekend in a fantastic cottage, part of the Party Houses group. Merrymeet Cottage is tucked away in a beautiful area, near Waterhouses, on the outskirts of Ashbourne. It’s a brilliant property that worked really well for our family birthday get-together/reunion and there were 20 of us! Plenty of space for everyone (including a few younger children on blow up mattresses in bedrooms) and a really social living room and dining room.
