We offer a range of hire options ranging from non-exclusive to a total exclusive use.

Non-exclusive use allows you private use of your chosen function room. Other events could be taking place in any of our other venues. 8 bedrooms are initially reserved for the wedding party. This is made up of the complimentary inclusion of the Bridal Suite and 7 other bedrooms which are not included on the wedding invoice.  6 months prior to the wedding day, the remaining 8 bedrooms will be released, subject to availability.

Exclusive use means that no other events take place at Offley Place in the Manor House, Hester Ballroom or grounds from 12pm on the wedding day. Included within the exclusive fees price, you will receive all 16 bedrooms to allocate to your guests for the night of the wedding, the Civil Ceremony charge as well as a complimentary full menu tasting of your chosen wedding meal and wine selection.
