Chillington Hall provides a stylish and elegant setting to hold a reception to mark a happy occasion, such as an engagement, birthday celebration, christening or milestone anniversary.
The Hall has an abundance of history and character which evokes the wonderful atmosphere of times past. The interior of Chillington Hall is all you would expect from a grand house of the period, with charming features and elegant decor that make a magnificent setting for any event.
For your special event you have exclusive use of the House, which includes the Front and Marble Halls, the Drawing Room and the spectacular Saloon, designed by Sir John Soane. This is the centre piece of this wonderful house and is home to our Broadwood Grand Piano. If you'd like to hire a professional pianist, why not make use of it?
We can accommodate up to 80 guests for a seated meal in the Grand Saloon or up to 100 for a more casual drinks reception. If you are looking for a smaller, more intimate occasion then our Dining room is available for parties of up to 24 guests.

Chillington Hall's 'Model' Farm is a fine example of an 18th century farm building complex which was restored to its former glory a few years ago. It includes a dovecote, pig sties, stables and an acorn boiling house. One of the hay-lofts has been converted into a flexible learning and meeting space. It is accessed by 12 steps with a handrail. It can accommodate up to 75 people, and is furnished with kitchenette and accessible toilets which makes it ideal for school groups, home educators, activity sessions, meetings or even children's parties.
