Poor cakes. The afternoon tea could have been given more of a Christmas feel. No crackers or Christmas music. The Victoria sponge looked awful, it was so dense and stodgy, it was unedible. Mince pies with barely a filling. The sandwiches were ok but there was no egg as described.

Currently looking at wedding venues and want somewhere where the bar is in the actual evening function room so that all guests are in one place. Is this possible here ?
Hi hmiller99, our bar is just outside of the evening reception room but connected through a door. Please do ring us on 01604 505505 if you'd like to book an appointment with our Wedding Planner for a show round.

Hi, I live in Welford, and I wanted to know if it is possible to buy a membership for the use of your swimming pool facilities. I am looking for a good quality private pool locally. Many thanks Phil Faulkner
Hi Phil, Thanks for your enquiry. I am afraid the swimming pool is only available for residents of Highgate House due to security. I hope you are able to find something else local. Regards

"check which room you are getting before you book"
"Beautiful honeymoon suite."
"Rooms around the main courtyard can be noisy if weddings are on."
"WE had room 111 which was very quiet and shaded"
"Get directions before leaving home as is slightly off the beaten track"
$111 - $169 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
