Holbrook House is in many ways the quintessential English Country House. Set in 20 acres of lawns, woodland and parkland, Holbrook has been a well known landmark in tine surrounding area for the past 400 years. Past Owners of this impressive Country House include Lieutenant Francis Farewell RN, who founded the British colony of Natal and the famous General Shrapnell. Since 1946, however, Holbrook House has been a hotel and the emphasis has been firmly upon rest and relaxation. The moment you turn into our imposing driveway you get a feel for what to expect and yet the house and gardens are still startling in their beauty. The 400 year old Cedar Lebanon Tree seldom fails to draw gasps of admiration while beautifully manicured lawns sweep down to a lake and babbling brook. Other areas are less formal and literally team with flora and fauna. Sunny early mornings and evenings are truly magical times is our gardens and grounds when Holbookâ€™s resident Roe Deer, Badger and Fox emerge from the undergrowth to forage for food. Yet even on those days when the British weather is less than kind the gardens are still a superbly beautiful backdrop to your very special day.
o much more... At Holbrook House we have all of the facilities you expect and some you might only dream of, such as Indoor Pool, Health Spa, Fitness Suite, Sauna, Steam Room and Tennis Courts. We also boast a superb restaurant and experienced and attentive staff. As for our bedrooms; they are all spacious and elegant with wonderful country views. All of our four function rooms are licensed for civil ceremonies and all have direct access to our delightful gardens. Our most spacious room will comfortably accommodate 140 seated guests while for even larger numbers there is the option of a traditional Marquee in the grounds. Most important of all however, is how we go out of our way to make you feel at home. Our guests often remark on how friendly, informal and relaxed Holbrook is which probably explains why so many Wedding couples and guests come back to stay with us time and time again.
enus For parties of 8 or more guests we do ask that a set menu is decided upon â€“ thatâ€™s to say one starter, one main course and one dessert for the entire party. With advance notice we are very happy to cater for any guests with individual dietary requirements or allergies, either adapting the dishes or with a completely separate menu. A simpler, childrenâ€™s menu can also be made available. Once you have decided upon a couple of dishes per course, we are pleased to invite you to a complimentary tasting for two to allow you to make that all important final decision and ensure you are entirely happy with your choices.
