The occasion that bosses around the world will be judged on and either launched into the eternal hall of fame or the Yuletide pit of shame…. Make your office party one to remember this year and take a look at some of the incredible offers that we have just launched at the Olde Bell for Christmas 2016. Organising the party yourself? Well the news gets even better.. for parties of 50 or more, the head poncho will receive a complimentary double room – absolutely free of charge. Tempted? Read on…
If you are planning to host your guests in absolute style then exclusive use hire of either our stunning 16th Century Tudor barn or elegant Victorian Malt House would be a great option for you. Excitingly, we are currently offering a 5% discount for parties of over 50 guests and an eye watering 10% discount for larger parties of 100 or more!
Because no party requirement is ever the same, we are more than happy to create bespoke packages for our clients. If you are keen to have exclusive use of either the Tithe Barn or Malt House but have less than 120 guests then our events team will be delighted to work with you to create a tailored quote to suit your individual requirements.
The versatility that comes with exclusive use really does mean that you can create a unique party for your guests – especially when considering the Malt House as your Christmas party venue. Why? Well, for many reasons but primarily the fact that this stunning and timeless building is comprised of 5 individual function rooms including a stately drawing room, atmospheric library, charming music room, stunning garden room and of course, the dark wood panelled oak room – a magnificent space with high ceilings and inviting fireplace.
When planning your Christmas party, these rooms can be used as you wish depending on the size of your guest list. Perhaps you may choose to serve mulled wine or Prosecco in the music room before moving into the drawing room for a formal supper. As well as these charming spaces, the Malt House further benefits from it’s own private gardens which can be accessed directly from french doors in several of the function rooms. On a calm winters evening, drinks could be enjoyed under the stars before guests are invited into the warmth of the Malt House for further festivities!
With its own private entrance and 14 bedrooms, your Christmas booking at the Malt House can be adapted to include overnight accommodation and if needed, bedrooms are also available in the main coaching inn itself.
