Full Description
Offley Place is where the past and the present come together in perfect harmony. This 17th Century Manor House has been lovingly restored to its former glory to create the perfect location for any wedding day. The traditional, grand features and charm of the original Manor House are elegantly complemented with the newer additions of The Conservatory and the magnificent Hester Ballroom. The two new additions echo the classic elegance of the house with a glass structure and impressive chandeliers that offer the perfect setting to dance the night away. There is an option to hold a marquee wedding on the extensive grounds, with the party having private use of the venue.

We have the recent addition of the conservatory which has floor to ceiling glass walls. This really helps to bring the outside in, making the whole space double the size.
