|Make Le Manoir exclusively yours|
If you have a special occasion to celebrate or simply prefer the intimacy of a private party with friends, family or colleagues, you can make exclusive use of all of the exciting features and services that Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons has to offer. A full takeover of the house and grounds means that you and your guests can indulge in a luxury beyond all luxuries, beginning with a full afternoon tea on arrival. The evening begins with a Champagne reception to welcome your guests, before heading into the restaurant for Raymond Blanc's signature ten course dinner with accompanying selected wines - a pure gastronomic experience. After dinner liqueurs can be enjoyed, perhaps with live music or entertainment - the choice is yours.
The following day, brunch is served for both the early birds and night owls. Guests seeking an interesting diversion can choose a guided tour of Le Manoir’s gardens, a cookery demonstration in The Raymond Blanc Cookery School or a wine tasting with Le Manoir’s Chef Sommelier.
|Private events in 'La Belle Epoque'|
If you have a smaller party to host, Le Manoir’s private dining room at the heart of the house is ideal. La Belle Epoque Dining Room boasts a private reception room which opens up onto an enchanting walled garden within the oldest part of the house. Up to 50 guests can enjoy drinks on the terrace and croquet on the lawn during the summer months or the glow of an open fire for a warm welcome during the winter months. Personalised headed menus, a table plan and individual place cards will be provided for your party.
|Exclusive charters on the British Pullman and Northern Belle|
What better way to spoil the ones you love than with an exclusive charter of its lovingly restored British Pullman and Northern Belle trains, which make the perfect venue for all kinds of special events. You can choose to travel on one of our regular excursions to carefully selected destinations and events, or charter the whole train and tailor the journey and occasion to suit your own particular needs. From the moment you arrive at the station until disembarkation, everything is taken care of.
