Our rooms are normally available for hire between 08:00 and 23:00 weekdays and 09:00 and 23:30 at weekends.

The elegant rooms on the ground floor are the usual base for conferences, offering large screen facilities for professional presentations and formal lectures. The Drawing Room provides ideal surroundings for club or association dinners with its relaxed atmosphere in a formal setting. The Drawing Room is also suitable for receptions and if you would like more space it can be used in conjunction with the Dining Room or the Salon.

There are rooms available on the first floor for workshops, discussion areas or small conferences. These rooms cater from 2 to 80 people. In short, Stephens House & Gardens is an ideal setting for a wide range of business, governmental, charity, community and family functions.
