One of the key attractions of coming to Smallfield Place is that unlike most other venues, you and your guests are given exclusive use of the entire house including the exquisite accommodation within the manor house. The house boasts seven luxury ensuite bedrooms which are all designed to reflect the nostalgic refinement of the manor house’s Jacobean architecture.
Smallfield Place mixes the traditional with the contemporary. You will enjoy fine quality furnishings such as four poster beds and fine cotton sheets alongside high specification bathrooms, WIFI, and flat screen TVs, making for a unique and comfortable experience. The bedrooms can accommodate up to fourteen guests over the seven bedrooms, although sofa beds, cots and additional folding beds are available on request.
The house is full of historic connections, the most notable being Anne Boleyn’s stay in the Tudor part of the house. There are also many special features including a beautiful ornate carved oak screen and stained- glass shields installed by Sir Edward Bysshe (Garter King of Arms immediately before the English Civil War).
Smallfield Place has four spacious reception rooms. Three of the rooms have large open fireplaces, one of which is set within an imposing twelve foot inglenook surrounded by stunning oak panelling.
On the ground floor there are two fully equipped kitchens with dishwashers, ovens, microwaves and fridges.
There is a formal dining room with capacity for up to 14 people. For larger events, up to 60 guests can be seated in our Crullings reception room. However if the weather is kind, the possibility of hosting a barbeque or hog roast outside is appealing.
The formal gardens wrap around the house and are lovingly looked after by our team of dedicated gardeners. The gardens boast a wonderful array of colour whatever the season; from the beautiful lilac wisteria that covers the front of the house in May, to the red Japanese acer trees in October.
The garden’s highlights include the Tudor knot and herb gardens, the croquet lawn, the courtyard areas and the water gardens, converted from the remains of the old moat.
Extending further from the house there are numerous secluded areas, including two small lakes, offering many delightful places in which to sit and relax. When it comes to entertaining your guests, the house and gardens can be utilised in the best way that suits you. The historic architecture and picturesque gardens offer the ideal back drop for those all- important photographs.
