Happy event for all ages!
A great location for My husbands 80 birthday and youngest grandchild’s christening. Family from far and wide came to Newington. We were able to use the church, which was quite beautiful. We were then able walk through the garden to have wonderful lunch on the terrace. A perfect venue for both young and old, the little ones could run about on the lawns and the older generations watch from the terrace.

An amazing and friendly venue!
Newington House is a fantastic wedding venue that ticks every box! Alex and James are both amazing and any idea you may have dreamed of will be possible. No cookie-cutter wedding venue here! While Newington house is their family home this was no obstacle and they were flexible on everything; suppliers, timings, set up, packing up and the use of the garden - I could go on. There was never the feeling of being rushed off the property to make way for the next wedding. We had full access to the garden for 4 days in total which is pretty rare from what we could see. The house, garden and river make the most amazing backdrop for photos and it is an idyllic venue for a fairytale wedding. Thank you Alex and James!

Brilliant 70th birthday party
Newington House was a perfect location. Easy access for all our guests. A beautiful garden in which to stroll about. Our lunch was served in the dining room and was absolutely delicious and beautifully catered for. We couldn’t have been more pleased. Thank you, Alexandra.,

Beautiful Venue
Amazing wedding venue. Bridge & Groom were relaxed and happy and it was clear that they had been able to tailor the venue to suit their tastes and personalities. The hosts made all guests feel truly welcome and we all had a fabulous time.

Totally perfect
Our wedding at Newington House was everything we could have wished for and more. The venue is stunning, lots of different areas to make use of. It really is a blank canvas venue, we were able to choose our own suppliers and add all our own personal touches to make it completely bespoke and personal to us. Very friendly and relaxed, nothing was too much trouble. We always felt very welcome throughout the hire period. Highly recommend this venue if you want to create your own perfect day.

Pefect in every way
My daughter got married at Newington and we couldnt have asked for a more perfect venue. The setting is beautiful, the staff and suppliers were first class and most importantly my daughter and son in law had the best day of their lives. It all felt very homely and relaxed, which, as parents is what we wanted.
