The house is available to hire for weddings, civil ceremonies, renewal of vows and other special occasions and we have a range of options to make your occasion unique to you.

Ceremonies seating up to 40 guests can take place in the drawing room where Ruskin used to write or in Ruskin’s refurbished studio gallery, which can accommodate 60 .

You and your guests can enjoy Champagne and canapés indoors or out. The Terrace restaurant is available for wedding breakfasts and parties.

We also have accommodation available for up to 9 guests in the Lodge, and the Eyrie apartment can accommodate 2 guests.
