Events and Occasions
With the tower of St Mary’s Church providing the perfect backdrop for photographs and the walled terrace being the ideal place to greet guests, The Abbey and its stunning grounds is truly an exceptional and adaptable venue for a whole host of functions.
The Abbey Hall
A hall suitable for a wedding reception, dinner, concert or disco; this adaptable venue can cater for up to 180 people or seat up to 200. With an inbuilt stage and an area for bar facilities this facility has everything needed for your special event.
The Ambrose Room
Located in the main Abbey building this atmospheric panelled building is ideal for a smaller, intimate gathering, perhaps a musical soiree and dinner party for 30.
