Knockerdown Cottages was purchased by our Director over 15 years ago and has seen a number of changes over the years. Approximately 12 years ago 6 new cottages were added to the site to complement the existing 10 cottages that had been converted from the original farm buildings. After that a games room was built to bridge the space between the leisure centre and swimming pool and reception area.
More recently there have been lots of exciting improvements on the site; the pool has now been closed to the public so we are able to offer full exclusive use hire of the site for up to 90 people for a celebration or event. Our site office has been moved making way for a new function room which is perfect for meetings or as a dining room for those taking more than one cottage. Clough and Griffe cottages have been knocked together to create the new 5 star 4 bedroomed cottage now renamed Two Dales and coming soon the Brackendale Restaurant refurbishment to create a larger function room for up to 100 people.
Nether Burrows Farm was purchased in 2007 as two holiday cottages, a farmhouse and a redundant barn. The barn immediately underwent a dramatic transformation in to the now 5 star Sunshine Cottage complete with outdoor hot tub. The Farmhouse also underwent a refurbishment but retaining its traditional features it is now a large 5 bedroom cottage with 2 lounge areas and wood burning stove in the kitchen. Willow Barn and Meadow View are currently having improvements made making Nether Burrows Farm the perfect location for larger groups to take one or more of the cottages up to a maximum of 52 guests.
Egginton Hall is our newest venue and although it is the only site without accommodation it is a beautiful and stunning backdrop for any event or wedding. With a private driveway you can hire your own country house location for the day with a wedding ceremony in the beautiful summerhouse by the lake where the swans may even pop in to see you. With the house as the backdrop you can bring your own marquee, drinks, caterer and entertainment to make your special day exactly what you dreamed it would be.
