Our Elizabethan Mansion has three unique spaces that can be hired individually or together, with period features and an abundance of natural daylight, they overlook the lawns providing an opportunity to have refreshments and lunch outside.  We work with a quality AV provider to ensure all your AV needs are met so that you can relax and enjoy your event.
