Set on a 200 acre working arable and livestock farm, with stunning views over the rolling countryside, it has been in the Mitchell family for three generations and dates back to the 1750’s, with many of the buildings enjoying listed status.

The hub of our activities is a beautifully converted Lodge barn that once housed the shire horses.

Now a fully equipped event and function venue it offers guests a warm and homely setting for a wide variety of occasions, ranging from  birthday parties and wedding anniversary parties to funeral receptions, private dining, corporate events and barn dances.

The Lodge can seat up to 80 guests for a formal sit down event or up to 110 for a more informal gathering.
