Just right for a big birthday celebration, a fabulous wedding reception or a themed party, the space the Bampfylde Hall offers means that you can create a really impressive event in this stunning hall. Depending on the layout of the room, you could have up to 200 people, ensuring you’ll throw a party to remember.

The Main Hall in Hestercombe House

The dramatic hall of Hestercombe House is a great social area for parties with access directly onto the Victorian Terrace. The grand sweeping staircase is a nod to an era when stately homes like Hestercombe would have thrown the most fabulous parties for their esteemed guests. Steeped in grandeur, this elegant hall can also be combined with the Dining Room or the Column Room for a larger party. The Main Hall can take up to 200 standing guests.

The Portman Room

The Portman is a classically proportioned room with an ornate Victorian fireplace. It is well suited for a drinks reception in conjunction with the main hall. Stunning plasterwork on the ceiling and decorative archways make this room a sumptuous place for a party. This elegant, well proportioned room is spacious without being too imposing making it perfect for social events. Laid out in theatre style, the Portman Room will take a maximum of 96 people standing, or you could entertain 40 dinner guests for a more intimate feel.

The Dining Room

Another beautifully designed room within Hestercombe Home, its elegance and easy access to the Victorian Terrace make it the ideal room for a drinks reception or a buffet supper. Wooden panelling and stunning detail ooze quality for your special event, where you can host just over 30 guests.

Marquee Lawn

Ideal for large parties on the lawn, we have two separate well-­appointed Marquee Lawns offering space for up to 200 guests. Enjoy the full splendour of the gardens at Hestercombe and you’ll agree that you won’t find a better view.
