Barton Court



Update on developments

While work is being carried out to create a magnificent new wedding/event/reception space in some of the beautiful ancillary buildings, we cannot take bookings for weddings larger than 60 guests.

Once the work has been finished - we hope by the end of 2019 - we will be able to offer large scale gatherings for up to 300 in a magical setting with far reaching views over the surrounding countryside.

Meanwhile, we welcome any celebrations that can comfortably take place in the house. More details are here but please do give us a call to discuss any queries you may have. Or drop me an email.

children’s parties


In The Engine Room

The Engine Room is a brilliant space for a children’s party. Light and airy, it has wonderful views over the fields outside. There are plenty of loos - including a disabled one - and a catering kitchen for preparing food. We can decorate the room to order and we work with Diddy Stars, a local children’s entertainment company, to provide plenty of fun. A typical party should last 2 hours.

For parents who would like to be close to but not part of the mayhem, The Loose Box, our bar just a few paces from the Engine Room, can be opened as a refuge for refreshments and some peace and quiet.


office parties


Formal or informal? The choice is yours……

Thanking your staff for their hard work during the course of the year has a very beneficial effect on performance going forward. A fun social occasion promotes good relationships in the team [albeit some can get a little complicated] and helps the group to bond.

If you want a formal, elegant affair, then dinner in the dining room or drawing room [depending on numbers] would be ideal. We can offer a complete package to include a delicious seasonal menu and specially chosen wines. If you want entertainment, we can source singers, DJs, magicians, Murder Mystery troupes, bouncy castles, casinos and pretty much anything you can think of. The Engine Room can be transformed into a disco, complete with light show and you can boogie on down until midnight.

To discuss your specific ‘do’, please either email me or give James a call on 07976 824895.


a moveable feast

Last year we talked about starting a club for foodies with a programme of events - dinners, tastings, demonstrations, etc - put on at Barton Court. We began with our Guys and Ghouls dinner which was a lot of fun. Since then, we have been so focussed on getting the Engine Room and The Loose Box ready for events, that we have dropped the ball a bit. We are back with a vengeance now! We have discovered some sensational chefs, growers, producers and entertainers for your edification. Be one of the first 100 members of the club and get the inside scoop on what is on the agenda plus discounts on tickets and special offers. Registration is free. Just drop me an email: or fill in the contact form below.
