Over the Rainbow is a restored Georgian mansion, secluded in 18 acres of woodland and gardens. Hire the venue exclusively for small group holidays, family celebrations, civil wedding ceremonies, residential courses and workshops.
The house lends itself well as a retreat for courses and workshops; an inspiring and creative space, practical for movement workshops and classes. There is a large ballroom and also a lounge/library - intimate yet spacious, homely and practical.
The BALLROOM is in the front wing of the house. Added in the 1820’s this is the 'modern' addition to the house. It is a light airy space, of approx 60 sq metres with high ceilings, a wooden floor, good acoustics, a large mirror, woodburner and French doors opening onto the lawn.
The room can be cleared of furniture for dance and movement workshops, 14 is the maximum the ballroom can accommodate comfortably for this type of workshop. Or, the room can be set up with tables and chairs for meetings, seating 40 in a lecture style set up, or 16 in a classroom or boardroom set up with desk space for each person. White walls enable you to utilize data-projection should you need this facility for your workshop.
The LIBRARY can be used for meetings in addition to the ballroom. This room has lovely views across the countryside, comfy sofas, a roaring wood burner, TV and DVD player. There are also books and games for all ages; maps and guides to local walks and cycle routes.
