Stately homes and country houses – the hidden gems for event venues.

Stately homes and country houses sometimes give the perception that they are expensive to hire and only for the chosen few, however as more and more events are occurring, people want something more than a hotel in the city centre or in the suburbs to really give their event the wow factor that will keep delegates talking about the event in the years after. Country houses are usually situated away from the hustle and bustle of the city which has stunning views yet have good transport links to main motorways and airports. Most country houses and stately homes have free parking facilities so there is no need to worry about the security or cost of leaving your car there overnight.

Stately homes are within beautiful grounds and usually acres of land which make amazing sites for team building activities, drinks receptions and barbeques. The unique venues inspire delegates and attendees so they really do get the most out of the conference or event that they are attending. With stately homes and country houses usually being hired out only by the specific party, there will be a more intimate feel about the event as other members of the public will not be present like you would normally find at a hotel. This will make the whole event have a more relaxed atmosphere and make it more memorable for the attendees.  

Budgets are a main aspect of an event and one of the main reasons why one venue will be chosen over another, stately homes and country houses can be seen to be on the higher end of the market compared to other venues in the city, however this is not always the case. Depending on the time of year and availability, stately homes can offer very competitive day delegate packages and overnight stays that will comfortably fit in with the budget and get you great value for money.

Here at Morris we believe that stately homes and country houses are hidden gems that can sometimes be forgotten about in the mix of venue selection, however should not be dismissed over price or location as most give out great value for money and have brilliant transport links that can connect you to the rest of the country with ease.
