Family Celebrations at Deneholme

There is always a reason to celebrate – be it a wedding anniversary, special birthday, christening, graduation or a celebration of someone’s life – you provide the reason and we provide the space!

Deneholme is a secluded Country House which can be hired catered or self catering for any period of time exclusively for your family and guests. Deneholme sleeps up to 40 people in 11 bedrooms and there is ample of space downstairs too; a sun room leading into the garden, a drawing room with dining space, a cosy library and a spacious games room. In addition to the residential guests, you can invite up to 200 day or evening guests to celebrate with you. (There is additional accommodation available close by.)

  • Downstairs

    The sunroom
    is a wonderful relaxing space – a wood burning stove creates a beautiful light and atmosphere, the floor to ceiling windows overlook the gardens and woodlands – a special space to chat and relax, read a newspaper, eat cake or drink wine.

    The drawing & dining room
    is an open plan “country house” space able to seat 36 people around three table islands or 50 people in a t-shape table formation. There are large Edwardian bay windows overlooking the grounds, a few steps lead down to the sunroom.

    The library
    is the perfect space for quiet or smaller activities, i.e. board or video games, reading – obviously – or making it into a little cinema for the children. This room is also used as the bar for large family parties of over 100 guests.

    The ball or games room
    is the perfect large indoor space – to dance, play pool, play table tennis or other games, to run around, have a disco, Ceilidh dance, karaoke sing along and much more. Big double french doors lead onto a west facing decking area and the bonfire pit.


  • Bedrooms
    Our 11 bedrooms consist of 5 ensuite rooms (Allenheads, Carrshields, Langley, Sinderhope and Mohope) one large family room with its bathroom next door (Whitfield) and 5 bedrooms that share facilities (Staward, Catton, Ninebanks, Swinhope, Sparty Lea). The shared facilities are spacious and newly refurbished: 2 showers and a toilet for the ladies and 2 showers and 2 toilets for the gentlemen.

  • The Grounds

    There is a total of 5 acres of grounds surrounding Deneholme on all sides: the car park with space for at least 20 cars (spill over into the neighbouring field possible) is out front, to the sides are little lawned areas with a bonfire pit and wood stores, the back is laid to lawn with little steps and two wooden decking areas. The rest – and biggest proportion of the grounds – is on steep ground through mature woodland with a little river at the bottom our “our dene”.
