If you like Downton Abbey, you will love Whitney Court. Built a decade before The Great War, it epitomizes that golden age, but on a slightly more human scale.

This is the England that was. Don't miss it now.

House Parties

Some say that Balkan gypsy music is the best music in the universe to dance and party to … others say a good party is all about coming up with crazy ideas with fun people and then watching them materialise … and according to Somerset Maugham, “at a dinner party one should eat wisely but not too well, and talk well but not too wisely,” which advice you may, or may not, choose to take. 

But whatever you have planned for your party or celebration, it all begins with people and place. 

Fires blaze in the grate, the antique furniture sparkles and in the morning, guests enjoy a game of croquet and boules on the croquet lawn. Fireworks light the sky at night and the sound of steel bands, string quartets and rock groups have often been heard entertaining the cows in the surrounding fields.”

Whitney Court has bedroom accommodation for up to 22 guests. Our bedrooms are spacious and luxurious, with a touch of Edwardian charm. Having a big party? For extra accommodation, we can recommend places for your guests to stay in the Hay-on Wye area.
