How To Pick The Perfect Country House For Your Next Event

The first step to selecting the right venue for your next party or event is deciding on what kind of theme you’re going to go for, what kind of style you’d like it to be. Once you’ve reached this decision you can then start to look at the different venues available to see what suits – and for a traditional theme, there really is nothing better than a country house or manor.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that you’ll only find little country cottages on offer… country houses can be incredibly opulent and grand, so perfect for any event. Whatever you do, don’t rush into any decisions – do take the time to really think about it and work out if your favourite house really is the best one for what you’ve got in mind.

First of all, think about the location and where the majority of your guests will be coming from. If, for example, you’re all based in London it would make sense to pick a venue that’s no more than an hour away by car so you know people can get there and back with ease.

Also bear transport links in mind and see how close the venue is to the local airport if you know that people will be coming from further afield. You want to make it as easy as you can for them to get there and get home again.

There are all sorts of benefits of choosing this kind of party venue, from privacy throughout the day to stunning countryside (perfect for photo opportunities), peace and quiet, a sense of seclusion, no gatecrashers, the chance to spend time outside… the list goes on!
