A much-loved family home, Kimberley sits in a perfectly designed 18th-century Arcadian landscape by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, overlooking the Tiffey valley. The Hall and West Wing offer a combination of traditional grandeur with a unique, stylish and flexible entertainment space.
Kimberley is imbued with a sense of one family offering their hospitality to another without the trappings of a corporate or public venue. Multiple options exist for the reception, both inside or outside in the terraced garden among the Yew trees overlooking the historic park with its romantic lake and ancient oaks. Moreover, the ‘wedding breakfast’ and evening entertainment can be accommodated in the West Wing, restored to a very high standard, or in a marquee hired separately.
To complement the classical rooms in the Hall, the West Wing provides the ideal setting for the wedding breakfast, music and dancing. Its contemporary vernacular design, with lime-washed red brick, oak floors and under-floor heating, has a computer-controlled LED lighting system allowing the walls and roof structure to be bathed in the atmospheric colour of your choice. The main double- height room seats 120 at round tables with a dance floor at the far end. The upper floor is arranged with comfortable seating and soundproofed from the main area, with a balcony overlooking the dance floor enabling guests to remain involved with the entertainment. The upper floor can also be used as a standing reception area or reception area for latecomers invited after the wedding meal. Along with the ante-room on the ground floor with its open fire, the space provides 3,200ft2, accommodating in excess of 200 people for the ‘after dinner party’.
