We are always pleased to hear your ideas and see how we could accommodate you.

Wine tasting event

Sunset Canapes and Champagne on the lawns for that summer celebration.

Baby naming ceremony – in the first floor Palk Room; especially meaningful if you were married here.

Sunday brunches (low and mid- season) - an intimate party with catering (by arrangement with maximum of 24 seated)

Special get together with work colleagues – an excellent place to brain storm.

Pamper day – arrange to spoil yourself and your friends.

Wedding anniversary – small intimate occasions in an iconic venue.

Arrange an open air summer concert, opera or drama with a picnic.

Excellent location for small local fairs with falconry and period games.

Small conferences and working groups that need to be away from the normal work place are most welcome and the setting with its panoramic views will encourage everyone to want to participate.

The grounds of the Belvedere have the ability to hold quite a diverse range of activities. No matter your age come and tour the grounds and learn about the flora and fauna as a group activity and arrange a cream tea to follow. Creepy crawly days and moth evenings with a buffet afterwards might be a fund raising idea for an organisation or a youth group looking for something different.

The knoll on which the Belvedere sits has a history stretching back over 5000 years and History and Archaeological Societies will find it the perfect venue to hold their meetings.

The geology, geography, biology and history of the area with the adjoining Haldon Forest, makes an interesting location for school trips and workshops.

If for example if you belong to a group interested in art, films, photography or astronomy (reasonable dark sky area as there are no street lights nearby) this could be a different venue for you to hold your general meetings, AGM or workshops.

If you live in the local area please contact Debbie to discuss local hire rates.
