Venue Hire

About our Venue Hire

Heywood House is listed Grade II* and both its outdoor and indoor spaces
were designed in such a way to be the perfect venue for events and celebrations.
These were enjoyed by many illustrious owners: from the Earls of Marlborough,
the Earl of Danby, the Barons Ludlow to the National Trust.

The embellishments we have made now makes this the perfect venue for
businesses. We can help you with a variety of occasions: Away-Days, corporate
entertaining, product launches, team building, conferences and yes, celebrations!
It’s all about the Venue and first-class Service.

OUTDOOR SPACES

With over 30 acres of beautiful parkland, gardens and grounds there are numerous locations
available here for your event. The outdoors combined with our Conservatory and in-house
catering makes Heywood House the venue you will be pleased you chose.

Once a pit for washing the Baron’s coaches, this is now a unique space for conferences and entertaining up to 250 people. The Pit is level, with its own power and data points.
