Private parties

There are parties – then there are Escot parties!

You may be getting prepared to celebrate a milestone birthday or anniversary, a family celebration or other special day. While many people enjoy hosting a party at home, if you’re planning something extra special or want to invite more people than your home can hold, you’ll need a venue.

Village hall, marquee – or how about Escot House?

We’ve been welcoming private parties to Escot for many years. You may want a refined daytime party with lunch, or an evening bash with a buffet meal. Or both! The layout of our rooms plus our terrace and secluded gardens offers you plenty of flexibility to organise your party the way you want to.

Escot House has three generously proportioned day rooms. You can book one, two or all three depending on your numbers and whether you want to separate your party into a music/dance room, a dining area, and somewhere to take a break if you’ve danced your socks off! The Library has large double doors into the White Room, so these two are often booked together.

  • The White Room – sit down meals and after dinner dancing
  • The Library – perfect for welcome drinks and greeting guests
  • The Kennaway Room – ideal ‘break out’ room!

Every party is different, and we will tailor our cost to your specific requirements. Here are some of the elements you’ll need to think about.

Music: We welcome discos and live bands at Escot. Usually the dance floor is in the spacious White Room, where you and your guests can spin and twirl to your heart’s content.

Food: We’re experienced caterers and will produce the ideal menu of your choice. You may want a casual BBQ or buffet spread, or a more formal sit down meal. Or something fun like picnic boxes with finger food or luscious cream teas.

Drink: Escot House is fully licensed with a well-stocked bar. We can also provide any number of different drinks on request, including cocktails. You may have a favourite you’d like to offer as an arrival drink.

Staffing: Numbers will depend on your party plan. Our team is experienced and discreet, so you’ll get great service without anyone hovering over you or your guests.

Other entertainment: We can recommend suppliers whether you’re looking for magicians, comedians, fireworks and more.

Numbers: Escot has capacity for up to 120 guests.

Location and parking: Escot House is easy to find, we’re just off the A30 at Fairmile. There is plenty of free parking right next to the house.

Please note, we don’t accept bookings for hen, stag or children’s parties!
