THE LAWN CONFERENCE & BANQUETING CENTRE 01702 203 669 | The Lawn is nestled within three acres of perfectly striped lawns, wonderful seasonally planted flower beds, blossom trees and a stunning rose garden which, with its miniature privet hedges, makes the most perfect backdrop for an outdoor wedding in the stunning gazebo. This all sits within The Lawn Estate with its 120 acres of rolling parkland and ancient woods.

Everything effectively revolves around the Grand Hall which acts as the hub with the bar, dancefloor, Blue Drawing Room and Orangery (dining room) all spoking from it, creating the most fabulous entertaining and party space. The capacity for the Grand Hall and its linked rooms is 150 and for the Orangery, 130 seated. We love...
