At all family reunions it’s wonderful have some centre-piece moments where you are together and focused. Often, these moments are when you and your family are sharing a meal together. As a result, we can create some incredible dining spaces for you. For example you can have picnics on the lawn, fine dining in the tapestry hung Diamond Room, buffets in the Library or just casual snacks in the Butler’s Pantry. Above all, our team is about adapting the house to your needs to create your unique family reunions.
Most importantly, you have your guest list and you have the rooms set up as you want them. But what about feeding your family reunions. So, here at Huntsham Court, it is about you having choice. As a result, you are welcome to bring your food (with a supermarket delivery) or use your own caterers.
But, often guests like to work with our network of chefs, cooks and caterers to create menus that mean something very special to your clan. This means, they can create signature dishes reflecting your family heritage. What’s more, it can include recreating menus from special family moments like weddings or births. Or, creating a food journey through your stay reflecting your families passions and culture. From formal fine dining to casual festival style food – it is all possible.
The most memorable moments aren’t always the formal ones. Yes, you remember the big family reunion dinner. But, what’s as important are the small moments. For example, the giggles with your loved ones in a quiet moment or generations bonding. Another example, sharing a cup of tea and a catch up with someone you just haven’t seen for ages. Above all, it’s about taking time away from day to day distractions to create special time. So, hosting family reunions is all about putting everyone together for them to find these unexpected moments and building bridges and share memories. For that reason, why not stay for 2, 3 or more nights. and have more time away from daily life. So, you find the time to rekindle connections, celebrate the past and make new memories. What’s more, our pricing means it only costs a little extra for so much more time.
When your family gathers to be together you do not want to have strangers hanging around like in a hotel. What’s more, you certainly don’t want the cost of 300 cups of tea costing £1000.
