This stunning Grade II listed converted stable block has recently undergone a major development with a new glass atrium installed to the building, giving it a striking combination of original stone-work, wooden beams, glass and steel. The old and the new combining in perfect harmony.


The Hovels is a unique space, perfect for your private event, wedding or corporate away day.


The building has an all new, fully equipped commercial kitchen, can seat up to 100 guests inside (there is the option for marquees connected to the building for larger groups), it has a fully licensed bar for alcohol sales and is licensed for marriage vows.

What is a Hovel?


The literal meaning is:

"A Small, Squalid and Basic Dwelling"

This is how the building's journey begun. 


It was later converted in to, first a stable block, then a shooting lodge and now, after recent redevelopment, our flagship event space.

We just love it.

We feel it's humble beginnings are part of the fabric of the building, despite it's effortless good looks now, to us it will always remain the Hovels.
