Long Gallery and Parlours

The long gallery (so named during its time as a gallery) was very originally a set of rooms - a dressing room, bedroom, bathroom and boudoir. Today it’s our biggest room in one long space and licensed for wedding ceremonies, as well as ideal for dinners seating up to 110 people.

The long gallery retains the original ceilings with mouldings in the style of the Adam brothers (very famous architects in their time whose style influenced the upper class residences of the 18th century). The room is filled with light from the windows all along the room and has extensive views across Gildredge Park. The decorative arch at one end is the perfect frame for saying your vows or other meaningful words!

Directly off the Long Gallery is a set of four “Parlours” (originally bedrooms - 2 at either end), which are very useful as meeting rooms, breakout spaces or places for the caterers to set up. Two of these rooms are beautifully decorated with yellow and gold Chantilly wallpaper.  Parlour 1 is sometimes used as a playroom during a wedding meal and Parlour 4 is now set up as the bride’s boudoir – a quiet and luxurious place to get ready, gather thoughts and come and go from without behind seen by the groom and guests before the ceremony!
