Majestically nestled in National Trust woodland in Hertfordshire’s rolling Chiltern Hills, and surrounded by 190 acres of stunning gardens, Ashridge House is the proverbial jewel in the estate’s crown. The turreted exterior of our Grade 1 listed mansion makes a lasting impression and the magnificent interconnecting function rooms provide an elegant setting for your special day. The palatial Lady Marian Alford room, decorated in beautiful Italianate style, or the art deco inspired Repton Hall, can be transformed for sumptuous wedding dining experiences. The stunning cantilevered staircase that majestically winds its way around the Main Hall is the preferred location for many civil wedding ceremonies.
During the summer months the beautiful terrace, landscaped gardens and sweeping lawns provide the perfect location for outdoor ceremonies and drinks receptions. Ashridge looks enchanting whatever the season – crisp air and sparkling frost create a magical atmosphere in winter, summer sees the gardens in full bloom and a picture perfect scene is created when the trees burst into their vivid autumnal colours. We guarantee that your photographer will be spoilt for choice by the endless settings in which to capture the memories you will treasure for many years to come.
Our passion for fine dining has earned us an unrivalled reputation for using the very finest seasonal produce to create innovative menus for you to choose from. Our talented team of chefs will be able to guide you in your choices while our wine doyen will assist you with your wine and Champagne selection.
We are used to putting on parties that really go off with a bang, so whether you want to have your guests singing along with a live band or dancing the night away to a disco, we can help make it happen. Ashridge House can accommodate up to 400 guests for evening receptions, so there is more than enough room to invite additional loved ones to join in the festivities. Once the sun has set we can enchant your guests with a spectacular firework display over the gardens before they make their way to their onsite accommodation.
