Home / Hospitality


Accommodation at Holland House includes 26 bedrooms, meeting rooms, a chapel, gardens and free Wi-Fi.

The oldest part of the House dates from the early seventeenth century.  Here you find a comfortable Reception area, Library Room, Drawing Room, and a beamed Dining Room with an inglenook fireplace.  Upstairs we have a selection of mostly twin bedrooms, and our Prayer and Study rooms.

The modern block houses 18 bedrooms (16 x single, 2 x twin) and includes a purpose-built room for people with reduced mobility or using a wheelchair.  The ‘Anthony Gell Suite’ includes twin beds and a modern wet room.  It is situated on the ground floor opposite the Conference Room for ease of access.

On the other side of the old House there is a lovely chapel with a large clear window behind the altar looking out across the gardens toward the ancient Cedar of Lebanon.  The chapel can be used by groups for worship, prayer, or art and because it has direct access to the Library Room, it is perfect for retreats that include regular worship or prayer activity.


Eating And Drinking

We understand that the best hospitality starts in the kitchen and, to that end, our fine chefs provide top-quality meals made with care and attention.  Our ethos – ‘In Harmony with Creation’ – dictates that, whenever possible, our produce is homegrown or locally sourced, free-range, and organic.  British Farm Standard is our minimum requirement and fish is MSC sourced.  We also work hard to cut down on waste and only cook to order, that is, we only provide meals for the number of guests we have, so that no meals are thrown away.

Although we do not offer a menu for each meal, we can provide a wide variety of health-related variations to all the meals, including gluten-free cake at tea-time, vegetarian, pescatarian, or vegan meals, so long as we are informed of requirements during the booking process.  If your requirements are complex it might be easier to email us with an example or two of your typical meals, or a list of what you can safely eat.  The ethos of Holland House is that we have a dining room (not a restaurant) and that we eat the same meal together, as you would at home – hopefully achieving a sense of being together in a welcoming home, rather than a hotel or restaurant.

We are able to cater for a wide variety of private occasions, such as celebration meals, garden parties and funeral teas.

We offer Afternoon Teas and have hosted tasting menus and dining evenings.  Keep an eye on Programmed Events and social media.

We have a licensed bar that stocks a range of wines, including English, and locally brewed beers, ciders, fruit juices and presses.

Homemade jams and pickles from our kitchen are available to take home after your stay and during the summer months, we also have plants from our gardens available to purchase.

Meeting Space

The largest meeting space is the Conference Room which can hold up to 50 people seated and has excellent IT facilities.  It can also hold 20+ people engaged in body-work retreats, with doors that open into the gardens, perfect for practising outside on sunny days.

The other meeting spaces are the Drawing Room, the Library Room, the Chapel and the Study.  We also have 2 smaller meeting rooms, the Prayer Room and the Tait Room that are suitable for individual guests.



Outdoor Space

Holland House has three acres of beautiful well-maintained gardens sloping down to the River Avon.  With many quiet spaces and private spots for relaxation and reflection, there is much of interest to be found in the garden which is divided between formal and natural areas.  Paths lead down to the riverside and the landing stage for the Holland House rowing boat.

Formal areas of the garden include well maintained lawns, a rose garden dedicated to The Friends of Holland House, a remarkable sunken garden filled with culinary and medicinal herbs and a kitchen garden.
