Please contact the team on 01202 262753 or email for further information.

Meetings and Conferences

Take your meeting out of the office and into the impressive surroundings of Upton House! Three of the ground floor rooms - the Drawing Room, the Morning Room and the Study - can be hired for business use. All three rooms give direct access to the back lawn via patio doors and the largest can seat 70 people in theatre style layout.

Equipment such as projectors and screens, flip charts and whiteboards are available and all rooms can be booked on a full day or half day basis.

Funeral Receptions

Pay respects to your loved one in the grand setting of Upton House.

The elegant Drawing Room provides a beautiful backdrop to your reception or wake, with large windows giving unrivalled views across the back lawn. We know how overwhelming bereavement can be and want you to feel at home with us, so welcome any special personal touches you wish to make to the decoration. Our on-site catering team can help if you require catering, providing anything from afternoon cream tea and cake to a more traditional buffet.

Children’s Parties

The Cabin at Upton Country Park is the perfect base for your child’s next party!

Enjoy the Walled Garden and Woodland Play Trail, or just allow the kids to let off steam on the front lawn, safe in the knowledge that you have somewhere for party food … and a back-up plan in case it pours with rain! Bring your own picnic or let the nearby Tea Rooms take the strain and enjoy a stress-free party with a bit of a difference! Please call the Park team on 01202 262753 or email for details and available dates.
