Group Celebrations Accommodation

Upton Cressett can offer luxurious staying and dining options for family parties, reunions or special occasions - from landmark birthdays to anniversary celebrations.  We have a variety of options ranging from groups of 8-14.

We offer four self-contained properties within a minute’s walk of each other that can accommodate up to 14 guests, including the magnificent Great Chamber suite private wing of the Hall.  We can also accommodate smaller parties of 8 or 12 by booking The Gatehouse and The Moat House together.

Any group taking the three properties together (Gatehouse, Moat House and Coach House) can also increase their party to 14 guests by taking The Great Chamber private wing of the Hall which sleeps two in the magnificent old great hall bedroom.

Upton Cressett is a rare luxury historic property in that guests can enjoy self-contained accommodation with their own kitchens and living rooms without being on ‘top of each other’. There is also a separate TV cinema/games room with a bar/fridge that can be enjoyed by all guests.

 

Children and elderly guests for groups

Both The Coach House and The Moat House are lateral conversions and are well suited to children and elderly guests as there are no stairs. An extra camp bed can be provided for each property for children under 12 for a flat fee of £25.  The Coach House is best suited for younger infants/nannies as a camp bed or travel cot can be placed in the Master Bedroom.

The Gatehouse has an oak staircase with bannister rope and the Great Chamber private wing is easily accessed on the first floor up the main oak staircase.

Group bookings can be made a year in advance. All prices are all inclusive. We are not VAT registered.
