The perfect venue for meetings and retreats

North Cadbury Court

A luxury stately home in Somerset available for exclusive hire, set within a 1,500-acre estate which can now sleep up to 80 guests. Owned by the Montgomery family, world famous for their Cheddar cheese, the house dates back more than 700 years and has been renovated to a five star standard with 21 bedrooms and 19 bathrooms.

Exclusivity means complete privacy and seclusion for all the team. North Cadbury Court is a great place for teams to relax in complete privacy, making the most of valuable time away from the office or to get together if working in different locations. Unlike in a hotel, companies can have complete flexibility to decide how their event should run. We have a superb choice of different sized rooms, including two large adjacent main event rooms leading to five beautiful rooms to be used for breakout spaces, drinks, food and relaxation.

The unique character of this glorious English mansion is its emphasis on comfort and fun. As well as beautifully appointed rooms, not everyone has quirky and adventurous activities such as rooftop golf, a basement disco, a fully equipped casino and an airstrip. We can also offer clay shooting, falconry, pedalos on the lake, fishing, tennis, and endless other activities. 

We are also close to the A303, an hour from Bristol or Bath and just 1 hour 40 mins direct train from central London. North Cadbury Court is a popular getaway for London-based businesses or international teams coming together.

Our breathtaking rural setting includes Cadbury Hill Fort (the legendary home of King Arthur’s Camelot).

“Everyone had a fabulous time and enjoyed their stay immensely thanks to the wonderful surroundings and excellent hospitality”

When you hire North Cadbury Court the whole house, estate and all facilities are exclusively yours. Unlike most venues, here there are no hidden charges, no corkage and no restrictions on schedules.

Our in house event managers will work with you to arrange everything you need – using our recommended catering, team building and décor suppliers, or you may wish to discuss using some of your own. We can also help arrange house staff, croupiers, DJs, clay shooting, fitness, or team building instructors. 

North Cadbury Court is a wonderful canvas upon which you can create your perfect event. You can opt for fully bespoke, or you can select one of our packages if you prefer.
