Venue Hire

Your event, surrounded by nature

Not your normal venue

Pensthorpe is the perfect location for meetings, retreats, conferences and your next special occasion. From our flexible meeting spaces to our elegant Garden Room, you’re sure to find an option to meet your needs.

Rooms with a view


Five Cottages is a Grade II listed building overlooking our picturesque lakes. Lovingly restored after being derelict for many years, it was once home to Pensthorpe Estate’s farm workers. Now, as well as event spaces, it also includes state-of-the-art therapy facilities and our own offices.

Pensthorpe is an approved venue for marriage and civil partnership ceremonies, and all our spaces are easily accessible from the car park.

Garden Room and Water Court

With stunning views across the water, this intimate and tranquil space includes bespoke Italian marble features and an adjoining courtyard. With capacity for up to 65 people, the room can be configured to meet your needs – from weddings and performances to networking events and retreats.

Function Room

Set next to the Courtyard Café, our function room fits up to 40 people and is great for networking events, workshops and private functions. It’s also popular with coach parties and other large groups who want to dine together.

Meeting Rooms

We’ve got three fully equipped meeting rooms to choose from – one on the ground floor with a window onto our 700-acre park, and two on the second floor with panoramic views across the reserve.


Our in-house team will work with you to develop a bespoke menu that’s perfect for your event. Whether you want a light lunch or a wedding feast to wow your guests, we’re here to help. From fresh vegetables and high-quality meat and fish to fine wines and spirits, we’re proud to source local produce from trusted suppliers. Please note that outside caterers cannot be used.
