Cowdray House opens for exclusive event use

The home of British polo is to open up for corporate hospitality,
weddings and other private entertainment opportunities with the Cowdray
Estate’s announcement that Cowdray House is now available for exclusive-use

The former family home of the 4th Viscount and Viscountess Cowdray,
situated on a 16,500-acre estate on the edge of Midhurst, can accommodate 22
overnight guests in 11 bedrooms, with venue spaces offered for hire on an
exclusive use-basis for the first time. 

Cowdray House can welcome up to 250 guests for a sit-down event, up
to 300 for receptions and a maximum 400 with the addition of a marquee on the

Lady Cowdray is the driving force behind a recent refurbishment project on
the estate that has its own 18-hole course and clay-pigeon shooting and
fly-fishing facilities.

Announcing the opening of the House, Cowdray Estate’s chief
executive, Jonathan Russell says: “This new initiative for Lord and Lady
Cowdray’s former family home is a tremendously exciting one.

“Where 40 years or so ago, stately homes started to become more
accessible by opening up as visitor attractions, another layer of public
accessibility has been unfolding over more recent years with owners now making
their homes available for private entertaining on an exclusive-use basis. I am delighted that Cowdray House is now
bringing its weight and glamour to this emerging trend across Britain.”
