Arbury Hall has been the seat of the Newdegate family for over 400 years and is the ancestral home of Viscount and Viscountess Daventry. This beautiful Elizabethan house, was built on the site of a 12th century Augustinian Priory. It was transformed in the 18th century to become the finest example of Gothic Revival architecture in the country.
The house contains fine collections of antique furniture, pictures, glass and china and many of the splendid rooms of the house are on view to the public.
Standing in its own parkland, the Hall is surrounded by delightful landscaped gardens with wooded walks and lakes.
George Eliot, born on the estate in 1819 where her father was the agent, features Arbury in several of her novels, especially “Scenes Of Clerical Life” where in “Mr Gilfil’s Love Story” she portrays Arbury as Cheveral Manor and gives detailed descriptions of many of the rooms in the house including The Saloon and Dining Room.
The elegance and historical importance of Arbury Hall makes it the ideal location for both private parties and corporate hospitality functions with many of the private rooms being available for guests to use. Arbury Hall is available to clients seeking a venue close to the heart of England in which to entertain their guests or colleagues to a superlative lunch or dinner perhaps combined with clay pigeon shooting or a ‘sporting day’, a small business meeting or company promotion.
Words cannot describe the splendour of Arbury Hall, its secure and peaceful setting, its wonderful atmosphere and scenic backdrop and it’s unquestionable suitability for many functions, only a personal visit, which are always welcome, can really do justice to these facilities. Situated in the heart of England and convenient to the major motorways, Birmingham International Airport and within easy reach of London.
Tea rooms are situated in the old stable block adjacent to the house.
