Roving Report: An Elegant Estate
We love to check out the venues we use in person and this bank holiday weekend we sent our roving reporter, Rebecca, to De Vere Horwood Estate.
We arrived Sunday afternoon and driving down the tree lined entrance, this venue really has the wow factor - It felt like something from Downton Abbey.
Built in 1911, and centrally located 11 miles from Milton Keynes, the hotel is just 25 minutes from J14 of the M1, 40 minutes from Luton airport and an hour's drive to Heathrow. You feel like you could be in the middle of the English countryside at this picturesque venue.
Inside the hotel lies a very elegant Restaurant in which you will find a huge selection of mouth-watering dishes, accompanied by the finest wines of course. Afterwards if you wanted to, then you can enjoy a relaxed drink at the bar or out on the patio on warmer nights.
The hotel boasts 35 different event spaces to ensure that any meeting, conference or team building is memorable for up to 220 delegates. Guests can enjoy the leisure facilities, which includes an indoor pool, tennis courts and 38 acres of grounds are ideal for outdoor events and team building.
Arriving at the impressive reception, situated in the original house, you are warmly greeted. The map they provide is essential as this place is a warren of corridors and side rooms.
We explored the facilities and grounds and I thought this is the perfect venue to host your event, as everything is all under one roof. It's a great mix of business and pleasure.
The main Cook Suite is perfect for a company conference as the room can hold 120 cabarets or 220 theatre style. It is a modern and light space and offers its own private lounge and bar area making it ideal for larger events.
